I defiantly want to play Kemble’s Cascade & The Battle of Five Armies. Nothing I am going to run out and get without trying it first…

These look great. I’m particularly excited to get a chance to try Kemble’s Cascade. The top-down arcade still demands my attention.

All of these games look good. My wallet gently weeps.

Thanks for the heads up on Contagion I will have to go look up some information on it.

I’ve played through Contagion a few times, but each time was with new players. I’m hoping we all learn really quickly to make it more challenging. But it’s still fun.

@renee – Huzzah! I checked into it a bit more and Ares listed the street date as September 8th.

Battle of Five Armies was being sold at Gen Con
I saw several large stacks of them in the Ares booth on the first day of the convention.

So excited for Battle of Five Armies…and the impending re-release of War of the Ring. Did anyone who saw this at Gen Con happen to catch the release date for BoFA?
