I don't know if there is a separate category for RPGs. Should be though.

Not yet, but I'm not going to let that stop me from nominating it.

878 - Vikings Invasion of England  - another excellent title from Academy Games.  I will admit that I am not a fan of the miniatures and am seriously considering replacing them with cubes like 1775 and other games in this lineup.

Unconditional Surrender - Reprint category.  Not sure why no mounted board but I hope to drop the $ to buy the upgrade kit.

Holland 44 looks great but have not gotten past reading the rulebook.
