Want to read rulebooks before BGG.CON 2014? Maybe a robot will help.

Here's an experiment in automation.

Reading downloadable rulebooks ahead of time is awesome. You can confidently walk into the library or the Hot Games room, take a game you've never seen before, and teach it to people.

I've tried to automate the process of finding where rulebooks have been posted. Some of these entries will be wrong, some may be in foreign languages (if there's no English rulebook posted on BGG), etc.

I've run the program on everything listed in the BGG Library with a release date of 2014. Games that didn't even slightly appear to have a posted rulebook were skipped.

The library doesn't seem to have all the Hot Games or Essen releases yet; I'll update when it does.
