This is pretty obsolete at this point I guess, but when just the other day the invitation arrived I was struck the other day that it's been 7 years since I last attended the Essen Spiel. Seems like just yesterday really.

And I started wondering how the various games of that year have done in the ratings, so here's a list of them, in average rating order.

Was to become one of the few games to go on to win both the Spiel des Jahres and the Deutscher Spiele Preis.

Some games were there, but only as prototypes, including:

EuroMille - unsure what became of it
Wyatt Earp

There were also some prominent games that were supposed to be at the show, but didn't make it:

Allies vs. the Reich - believe this one from the late QED Games never appeared

Apples to Apples - delayed to the next year

Industria - the disagreement between Tom Lehmann and Hans-im-Glueck

Patton in Flames - delayed to 2001

Qin by Reiner Knizia (cancelled, and finally appeared only in 2012)

San Marco - delayed to Nuremberg

Solaris (from FFG and and still has not appeared? or maybe the name was changed because of trouble from the movie people?)
