Essen 2012: Ranking Tracker
- Jeff Clark(zzyzxuk)United Kingdom
Which Essen rating system does the best job of predicting future success of a particular game?
I have therefore selected a subset of all Essen games, and will track them over the course of the next year, to see if one particular source does a better job than another in predicting a games eventual rank.
Games were chosen from:
1.) BGG's own Geekbuzz system - taking the top 100 games as rated by users at the fair itself.
2.) Fairplay's final ratings of Essen games
3.) The pre-Essen "Essen Geek Mini" list, found at http://essengeek.dssr.ch/index.php
This list is intended to track games newly released at (or just before) the fair, so games published earlier shouldn't be here. If I've missed some, send me a PM.
I'm happy to add other games from the Essen fair -if- they end up ranking higher than any of these games on the overall BGG rankings, as it would help point out "undiscovered" games that went on to do well. If you're aware of any of these, send me a PM and I'll add them.
