Frequently Asked Questions
  • Why isn't my nomination on the list? Check the nomination thread. If you made a valid nomination (name, link) and it's not in the poll, let me know ASAP so I can add it.
  • How does a game qualify? It must have been nominated by you in the nomination thread with a valid formatted nomination, it must be a standalone tabletop RPG (not a setting, adventure, supplement, etc.), and it's projected release date to the general public (not just Kickstarter backers) should be in 2021.

Considering I started 2020 with the intention of cutting down on my Kickstarter addiction, I do seem to have backed an embarrassingly large number of these nominations :)

#1 SLA Industrie 2e s is the most anticipated game for me. Great rules, unique, bizarre setting, cool art. It has everything my players and me love: tactical combat without minis, mission-based structure, diverse alien/mutant characters, and a crazy splatterpunk world.
#2 King Arthur Pendragon 6e is looking great based on quickstart Chaosium released - AAA production quality (like new RuneQuest), streamlined rules, and the same in-depth setting with extreme attention to details and semi-fictional history.
#3 is tough... So many cool upcoming games! I chose Swords of the Serpentine since the draft rulebook is really nice, and I will 100% run it (finally a fantasy GUMSHOE! And Leiber/Pratchett city-based setting is really cool). Still, the One Ring 2nd Edition, Troubleshooters, Rivers of London, Root, and Twilight 2000 totally deserve a nomination.

PS: Blacksad RPG is missing.

Modiphius' Conan was in the winner's list in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Modiphius' Dune was in the winner's list in 2019 and 2020 (#1 that year!), and probably will be for 2021?

I'm detecting a pattern. Should there be a rule about this? You can't be the most anticipated game of the year three years running, surely? Or can you?

IMO, things can continue to be anticipated if people anticipate that the game will be released that year.

King Arthur Pendragon 6E for me, not least because they are also re-doing the entire Great Pendragon Campaign in some sort of slipcase format.

I’ve not gone for Dune, as it was last year’s winner and the starter supplement has already been released or The One Ring 2nd edition, in as much as I don’t think they will change too much rules wise. However, Twilight: 2000 is going to be a great package when it comes out and is a welcome return. Of the others, I am most intrigued by how Everway will turn out, although what they end up doing with Werewolf: The Apocalypse 5th edition is an intrigue in itself. In fact, there is a whole bunch of games I am anticipating on that list, but I can only pick three...

Hate to say this, but MoreDiceForUs may be the biggest UK publisher now, so no longer an Indie suitable for Kickstarter for all intents and purposes.

Also, before all the Cthulhu faithful come for my head, I never liked Lovecrafian horror tropes, but prefer the horror of Alien which is grim but defeatable

Yet, having played the latest Achtung Cthulhu at MODCON 2020, I am a fan of the pulp horror twist now.

Voted Fading Suns last year and will continue to do so this year as well. Now in theory it's already out in digital format to its KS backers but I suppose a wider physical release is still due so that's fair play.
Other than that: Werewolf 5e to see what they do with it and Fallout 2d20 because that's another game that's been a long time coming.

Werewolf for 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons?
