Are you also so eager to finally get your hands on the list of lists, the one and only Spiel 2016 Preview by W. Eric Martin? The waiting is almost over.
T minus x and counting...

Last week the message below was posted on the SPIEL Facebook site:

"Puh, nur noch 65 Tage bis zur SPIEL '16 und so viele Neuheiten. Im Moment schaffen wir es leider nicht, die Neuheitenliste wöchentlich zu aktualisieren. Bis jetzt sind es schon fast 1.200 neue Spiele, die in den letzten Tagen gemeldet wurden. Hier sind allein drei Mann mit der Eingabe beschäftigt, die dann auch noch in den nächsten zwei Wochen Korrektur gelesen werden muss. Es wird also bis etwa Anfang September dauern, bis wir die nächste Liste online stellen können. Es tut uns wirklich leid."

It says a team of three is not able to make a weekly update of Merz Verlag's list of new releases because over the last couple of days 1200 new games were reported. They postpone the next update to early september. Poor Eric. Is he updating the preview all alone?

Previous years there was also a 'most thumbed games' list. Is it there again this year, or at least, will it be there?

Not sure if it was last year or the year before but, but there were some 'isues' with that list. But I thought someone created a PDF?

There is a collection of lists here: Essen 2016 collection of lists

The PDF you are talking about is probably this: http://plind.dk/downloads/essen2016.pdf

It gets updated weekly.

I did that last year but I'm restricting my BGG intake quite a lot at the moment so won't be in a position to do it again this year. To be clear, there were some methodological debates last year, but nothing major. The year before was when we saw the more salubrious issues (though I have no intention of spreading what may well be hearsay).

Does anyone know how Eric Martin included the publisher names in the Preview Geeklist, without numbering them like the games?

Am I overlooking something or is it a setting that's unavailable to me?

This is a special geeklist. Apparently the code is a little unstable and they only want mods to be able to use them.
