This list is based on the Gen Con Geeklist provided by W Eric Martin. Within it, I will be filtering out from his list of all prototypes/demos/etc and listing only the games that are for sale at the Con, and more specifically, only those that are released at the Con. The general idea is for this list to only include games where Gen Con is your first chance at buying the game at retail (though it is US-centric - I will include European titles available for the first time in the US). I will include items that publishers indicate are "likely" to be available and update as information is available. In addition, I will add any releases I find from other sources.

This list will not be re-ordered! Newly uncovered debuts will be added to the end of the list. Items that fail to make release will just be noted as such. This way you can easily keep track of where you left off.

This list will be updated as frequently as I am able - likely daily if there are updates to be made.

In order to keep the two lists in sync and information up to date, information here will be sparse and I will link back to the item within Eric's Mega-geeklist for booth/publisher/price information.

Please leave a comment if I have missed anything.

A little uncertain on this one, but CSI lists a release date of Aug 4 and I couldn't find it on any other sources.

August release per CSI, so at this point, safe to assume Gen Con is as early as you can get it.
