Around this time of year, many BGG users are getting their first look at some of the new Fall 2006 releases. This list is a place to collect everyone's first impressions of the new games. Joe Huber did a list like this a year or two ago, so I credit him with the idea.

The Rules

Please only rate games you have played. Please rate them even if you've only played once. These are just initial impressions, subject to change. Additional comments are welcome, but not required.

+ means positive first impression
0 means neutral first impression
- means negative first impression


You may also indicate ++ for games that you think are particularly outstanding, but these votes will be counted the same as regular + votes.

I will regularly update the results with running totals.

Let me know if you'd like any games added to the list. I'm not allowing public additions so that I can update the totals under each game entry.

Edit 11/15/06: For reasons of manageability, I've not included wargames in the list. This list is for the sort of games you might expect to see at the Essen fair.
