Borg Samurai and Sci Fi In 2012

Richard Borg games are among my favorites these days; I have them all, including all of their expansions:

Commands and Colors Ancients (Rome, Alexander, Sparta) by GMT
Battle Lore (Medieval/Fantasy) by FFG; formerly Days of Wonder
C & C Napoleonics (France, Britain, Spain with other Allies coming) by GMT
Battle Cry (Civil War and new 150th Anniversary Edition) by Hasbro
Memoir 44 (World War II--all major ground theaters) by Days of Wonder

American Rev is coming too. And since Richard and his pals have many other subjects and expansions in the works, he mentioned that a strong contender for the future will be a naval version for Ancients.

Recently I read a thread on boardgamegeek.com about him being their January Designer of the Month. There he revealed two new games of his for 2012 with different companies:

Samurai Battles ($80, Zvesda) C&C Rules, including Dragon Cards, Fortune, and Honor with new 1/72 miniatures (and another system of rules is included as well).

Abbadon Based on the old Sci Fi computer game (according to a pal of mine), this will be a non C&C board game but with a similar feel.

Just thought I'd pass this info on.

Re: Borg Samurai and Sci Fi In 2012

Cool. I usually see him at HMGS wargaming conventions. He's the Perfect Nice Guy. He knows me vaguely as "That Guy Who Buys Everything He Publishes."

In March at Cold Wars Con (Lancaster, PA) I'll be in his Memoir 44 version of Operation Olympic, the hypothetical late war invasion of Japan (if The Bomb hadn't worked).

Here's my favorite Borg story from that boardgamgeek thread:

"What was your most difficult game designing challenge?"

"I was in the offices of Marvel discussing changes to my X-Men Alert game (Pressman) when Stan Lee came by and said 'Why don't you do a card game too, and have it for me next week?' So I also designed Deck The Mutants, which was not a bad little game for one with only a week's development."
