My yearly list of new games kept 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 BGG's Geekbuzz for source info.

I'm scaling back quite a bit this year as the list begins with less than 90 games. I'm choosing mostly games I'm interested in this time.

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 2013.

These two boards appeared in the French- and German-language versions of Power Grid. Limited edition, so buy it now if you want it.
