This is an effort to track which Essen games (loosely speaking) have known USA distribution plans. Sorry for the USA-centric view, but feel free to create a different list for other countries. But seriously, many people outside USA order from USA retailers, so I think there is global interest in such a list.

The point here is that folks might want to wait on games with known US distribution, and might want to pick up at Essen or import games with no known US distribution. Thus Release Date means retail availability in USA. And publisher means US publisher, even if they had nothing to do with the creation of the game. It's just about whom to look to for getting it into US distribution channels.

Please add comments at the bottom if there are games you'd like to see on the list that aren't. Please add a comment to a specific game if you have information about the US availability of that game, preferably with a link.

Ideally I'd like for this list to not be as long as the Essen preview list. I'd like to limit it to the games that people are seeking out, and would make other plans to acquire if not distributed domestically. And full games, not expansions (unless US availability of expansion is different form base game), and certainly not micro expansions promos, etc., so the list doesn't get out of control. Let's see how it goes.

Sorted alphabetically for easy checking whether a game is in the list yet. After Essen I may switch to sorting by rank.
