Barry has been to Essen and so I have morphed Barry's Essen List into my yearly game tracker - The Crop. I use this list to keep myself updated on how new games are ranked on BGG.

I periodically update the order and content of the list based on current BGG ranking and rating.

Top 30 Fairplay Poll games are so designated. It will be interesting to see how they fare by year's end.

The Crop 2007-08
The Crop 2008-09
The Crop 2010-11

Below is the original header text...

My friend, Barry, is going to Essen this year. Here's a list of games that have caught MY eye. Barry says there's some space left in his suitcase saved for me! Also, be on the lookout for small expansions and promos. Wish I was going to Essen myself.

Now you'll have some villagers to protect. New ghosties too.

Barry brought Ghost Stories to our group. Here's the first boxed expansion.

1st expansion! Comes with a small box that will carry the new and the base cards along with plastic divider! Now that's thinking of the customer, and I'd say that makes this a MUST.

They're aiming for June

Stand alone game and expansion for Dixit (2008). 84 new cards with paintings that can be used on their own or with those from the base game.

The storyteller is given a single picture, while the other players get a hand of six pictures. The storyteller says a sentence or a word connected to their picture, then each player chooses one of their pictures to bet on. All pictures are showed face up, and every player has to bet upon what picture was the storyteller's.

Pretty party game.

Barry likes some tactical games, so he should like this. I have the rest of the series and I like them a lot. I would pick it up.

I can't really remember Barry being too keen on Hamburgum, so probably a pass.

Jambo was a very nice 2-player card game. This is another 60 card expansion.

Being a 2-player card game, I don't think it's in Barry's wheelhouse.
