Ah, the post-con doldrums, when game companies eschew new releases in favor of rolling around in the cash that they pulled in at GenCon (or going into rehab for the alcoholism they developed in Indy.)
Despite every other bookseller or store wanting to ramp up for the holidays, the gaming industry produces little . When Osprey reserves this month to publish AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN ALBATROS ACES OF WORLD WAR I and ITALIAN MEDIUM TANKS 1939-45, you know that the gems will be few and far between.
My Want List
With money tight, I currently have a backlog of old want list, so nothing jumped out to take a place on my shopping list
My Money is No Problem
Big surprise here, my only item on this list is from WotC? DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: DUNGEON!, the classic board game, is being released again, and unlike a number of their products relaunches, they don't appear to be screwing up a classic. $19.99

Days of Wonder
SHADOWS OVER CAMELOT: THE CARD GAME
Darkness Descends over Camelot —again! As dark clouds gather over Brittany, it’s whispered that a Traitor may be conspiring against the Round Table to bring down the kingdom. Band together with your allies to dispel these rumors and defeat the Shadows in the Shadows Over Camelot: The Card Game! This fast-paced card game invites players to take on the role of the sons and daughters of the legendary Knights of the Round Table who unite to defeat the game itself, represented by a deck of Rumor cards that threaten to overwhelm Camelot. Scheduled to ship in December 2012.
From the Ticket to Ride people...definitely worth a look.
