Me either.  A bunch of new games but not one that was released in 2016.

Yeah, the only downside to it is that the quality of the map printing is not great. Otherwise, great package, lots of chrome, lots of tactical choices to make.

Hmm. I'll have to check my map. I don't recall it being subpar, but I may have beem too focused on processing the rules ;)

Yeah, it's a nitpick I know. :P I didn't like how the seams were already showing noticeable damage when it was brand new. Down to the quality of paper I guess, and seeing that after being pretty impressed by the rest of the contents.

I've only played one game released in 2016.  Evolution: Climate.  Its good, but I don't think its game of the year material.  I really need to get more up to date on my game collection.  :P

Can't quite decide if it's a reprint (which it is) or a totally new game (which, in a measure, it is) but:

BEST REPRINT:  "Silver Bayonet, 25th Anniversary Edition": GMT

BEST GAME:  "Falling Skies": GMT

No, but if it doesn't get nominated now it could end up missing the cutoff. And I am confident it deserves to be nominated.
