in order of BGG ranking and then BGG rating for unranked games. I tend to include only those games I or my friends might be interested in, so it is in no way an exhaustive list. Nevertheless, it is constantly changing and updating over the course of one year. It's a horse race really.
What Am I Trying To Do? I see this as a way of looking at the rankings and ratings of the new games to try to see which ones are getting the best reactions. I owe a LOT to W. Eric Martin's Spiel 2011 Preview for source info, but my list differs from his in that I keep track of the games' popularity.
As the list begins this year, there are 243 games. Of those, 26 already have BGG rankings, either because they are reprints/re-themes, or because they came out very recently and have already hit the shelves before Essen, but so new that I still want to track their progress. 63 of the games on this list began with not even any rating at all.
Please note that it takes a couple of weeks for the numbers to settle down after Essen, so I do almost daily updates for a while. After that, I taper off and try to get in an update at least once a week.
This list will be continually re-ordered to reflect ranking until Essen 2012.
