Upcoming games. I want them.
1) Alea Expansion
Now we have all, maybe not all, but we have discussed the Alea expansion box.

2. New buildings for San Juan
3. A new 'gimmick' for both San Juan and Puerto Rico

6. Building the Chinese wall for In the Year of the Dragon
7. Material for a 6th player in Witch's Brew

Alea Expansion of Wonderful
There is also a Agricola expansion being released at Essen.
"Agricola - Die Moorbauern
First expansion for Agricola by Lookout Games.
New actions, new special cards, new type of animal.
In short: You start with some forest and marsh chits on your board. You need to remove them to use the space, but you get stuff for it. There are special actions that help you remove the tiles and receive the extra stuff, among which there is a new type of resource you need to pay each harvest (heat markers for your rooms). That's the basic idea. There are a lot of new improvements and a new type of animal - horses."
3) Did you know Agricola and Le Havre are part of a trilogy? I didn't. The last one is out at Essen.
At the Gates of Loyang
4) Dominion: Intrigue is out this summer. And the Seaside expansion, which is still mysterious, is set for an Essen release.
