I have played a new game that is in the PnP stage. It is entitled Avignon (by John duBois), and the rules/parts are available here. Considering the length of the rules and the amount of parts that are necessary the game is really fun. It has rules that are simple but allow for a lot of strategy. (Edit: I got permission to link to the rules, so Try it out everyone :).
I also found an interesting kickstarter campaign too. Here is a link to it. I was surprised to not have been notified of it by Indie Boards and cards (I am on their newsletter). Either way, I found out about it before it ended, so that is good.
