Ideally this list will include every title released at Spiel 2006, organized by rating average so that the cream will rocket to the top, knocking aside all the lesser games on their way up.

Much of the initial info on this list comes from the good folks at Boardgamenews.com. Add new games to the list as they're announced and added to BGG, and please include the designer and publisher at a minimum.
