After Essen, I always find it interesting to see where all those games that seemed promising end up in the ratings. So, I check all the "played at Essen" list for mini-reviews and reactions. I also like to see the games come in low in the ratings and then climb (or fall) towards their (more or less) final positions.

On this list, I'll be tracking the progress of those Essen 2011 releases that have garnered enough ratings to be included in the ranking, so we can see them climbing and falling in the next few weeks.

A big question is: What is an Essen 2011 release? I'm using the Spiel 2011 Preview to answer that question. Anything that is not on the preview is not an Essen 2011 release (or, more precise, I don't consider it to be one). However, the preview also lists any games that are re-released at Essen, and some of those re-released are well-known already. I've decided not to list any game that had already garnered 100 votes before Essen (these games are listed here: SPIEL'11 Games That Were Ranked Before SPIEL'11). Also, any re-release of a game from 2006 or before is not included.

I've also decided to keep any game marked as a Children's Game off the list - these are seldom part of the race to the top, and keeping them off the list saves me a quite bit of work.

I'll see what items these restrictions net me - it won't be perfect, but hopefully, it will be good enough. If not, I may add (or perhaps remove) some restrictions.

Last year, it has been suggested that I disallow public addition to the list. This allows me to keep track of the ratings inside the game entry itself, rather than in a comment - which in turn allows readers to hide the comments and still get all the tracking information. If you see a game that should be added, mention it in the comments or geekmail me.

10/26: The update for October 27th will likely be slow and/or late, so be patient :-)
11/20: From now on, the list also includes the number of ratings for each game
12/09: Removed Potion Making: Practice from the list, as it shouldn't have been there in the first place.
