    Not being a jury member for the IGA, I’ll make my predictions now…

    Deus and Baseball Highlights 2045 FTW

    Nice selection! I haven’t played them all, missing The Voyages of Marco Polo, Kraftwagen, and Quartermaster General / Star Wars Armada. My favorites are probably La Granja and Wir sind das Volk!. But I’d predict Roll — it takes an already great game and makes it actually approachable for most people — and Baseball — everyone seems to love it!
