Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2022

Not open for further replies.
As I do every year, I'm taking nominations for the MOST ANTICIPATED RPG poll for the coming year. Here is last year's Top 10 (spoiler: the joint winners were Dune and Twilight 2000). Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles (2017), Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018), Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (2019), Dune (2020 & 2021), and Twilight 2000 (2021). What will be the most anticipated RPG of 2022?

We do this at the end of every year, and have done for several years now! Here's how it works:

We start with a nomination stage. That's this thread. You may nominate any standalone tabletop RPG due to be released to the general public in 2022. All nominated games will appear on the final ballot. To nominate a game, simply make a reply in this thread. A few rules:
  1. It must be a standalone tabletop RPG, NOT a supplement, setting, adventure, sourcebook, expansion, or accessory. If there is a QuickStart version, or a preview, it’s the full release that counts.
  2. It must be due out to the general public in 2022. The important date is the date the general public can purchase the book. That's not Kickstarter fulfillment dates or pre-orders.
  3. It must be nominated by at least one person in this thread. Simply post the name of the game and the name of the publisher below to nominate it.
  4. You can nominate up to two games. It's not a contest to see who can list the most games!
  5. Nominations will remain open for two weeks, until December 23rd. Voting will take place shortly thereafter.
  6. Not your own game or one you’re affiliated with.
  7. Include a link. Don't make me Google to try guess what you mean! No linky, no nommy.

Last year's joint winners were Dune and Twilight 2000 (pictured above). You can see last year's top 10 here. Sometimes products make it into the list in more than one year; what can I say? Product schedules slip!

The important date is the date the general public can purchase the book. That's not Kickstarter fulfillment dates or pre-orders.

I linked the drivethru page of the pdf. Drivethru is not KS. It's an online store much like Amazon etc. Anyone can register with about a single click or filling out a form (much like in any online shop), and buy it. The general public can already purchase the book digitally. It's out now.

Does a game that is late for 2021 count? If so, speaking purely for myself - Monte Cook's Diamond Throne for Cypher System by Here Be Dragons Games.

So here's hoping for a 2022 release.

I think Dune being nominated for 2019, 2020 and 2021 (winning in 2020 and tying for first place 2021) means that it's the expected release date at the time of the nomination.

For clarification does this include PDF-only releases? Or if the PDF is released first in one year, and the physical book released the next then what year is it eligible for nomination?

Do you mean you're incapable of accepting digital products for what they are? Or do the rules set out by @Morrus exclude pdf releases? Where?

Physical books are now just a version of the book, not the book, which, in this case, you can already buy.

Edit: Note also that even if you preorder the physical version of the book, you'll get a digital version of it immediately via drivethru (which you can, again, buy as a standalone item, a digital product over at drivethru.) So you'll practically have the book in either case. You can read it, you can print it (for yourself), you can play with it, even as a member of "the general public."

Honestly? I actually don't care. This is just supposed to be a fun list. I only responded because I thought the pre-order part was funny. Have a great day.

If you're asking me, sorry I have no idea. Whether it makes it to the list or not though, I'm still looking forward to TOR 2E. Have a good one.

You're right, this should be a fun list. Sorry if my answers came through as unfriendly — I just felt kinda baffled by your intense resistance to accepting digital products as valid items, and actually arguing against them on a digital, virtual platform.
 

Thankfully then you can order it from DriveThruRPG and read the published version already.

You can read the electronic version. Drivethrurpg won't have a published version (it won't be print on demand as Free League will be publishing a traditional print run).
