This is intended to be a consolidated listing of all Nürnberg 2005 games, for reference and for posterity. I'll get things started, and together let's enter any missing games that belong here as they're added to the database. Please include both the designer(s) and the publisher(s) in the comments box.

Rick Heli usually does one of these for every Essen and every Nürnberg, and I've found them to be excellent resources. Rick is a bit busy, and has asked me to handle it this time.

The list is sorted by average rating.

This is supposed to be a distinctly simpler version of Carcassonne than the original. This was the goal during the development of the game. It should have simpler rules, but offer greater strategic depth... I'm interested.
