57 Most Anticipated Board Games of 2024

After the deluge of new games that was 2023, the year ahead is looking to be somehow even more packed. It’s only January, which means dozens of games have yet to be announced, and yet somehow we already have a jam-packed list of upcoming releases, new crowd funding campaigns on the horizon, and games set to ship in the next 12 months.

As always, you can listen to the full rundown of our most anticipated games of the upcoming year on the podcast (episode 457 linked here), or you can skim through the list below; links are available to the Board Game Geek page for each game.
