Essen 2016 Ranking Tracker
I'll include any game that was listed on the SPIEL 2016 Preview and that is ranked, unless:
- it had already 150 ratings or more before SPIEL. (Those games are listed here: SPIEL'16 Games That Were Ranked Before SPIEL'16.)
- its publication year is after 2016. (Those games are listed here: Ranked SPIEL'16 Releases That Will Not Be Released Until 2017.)
Public additions to the list are turned off. This allows me to keep track of the ratings inside the game entry itself, rather than in a comment - which in turn allows readers to hide the comments and still get all the tracking information. If you see a game that should be added (or an error in the list), please geekmail me.
For each game, I'll track its rank, number of votes, its average rating, its rank on this list, and its rank on this list, based on average. I'll try to update this daily, though the table for each game will not have an entry for each day, to prevent the list istems from growing too large. Instead, I'll list the last seven days, and a selection of the period before that.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why isn't Game X listed?
There are five possible reasons for this:
1. It isn't ranked yet. Once it reaches 30 ratings, it'll get ranked, and I'll add it to the list.
2. It isn't on the SPIEL'16 preview, and I do not consider it a SPIEL'16 release.
3. It had 150 or more ratings before SPIEL'16, and I do not consider it a SPIEL'16 release.
4. It listed publication year (on BGG) is after 2016, and I do not consider it a SPIEL'16 release.
5. I've overlooked it. Please GeekMail me, and I'll add it to the list.
Why is Game Y listed? It was published months/years/centuries before SPIEL!
W. Eric Martin listed it on this year's SPIEL preview, and it didn't have many ratings yet, so that's good enough for me - I'll list it here as well.

December 31st Update
There will be no more new game entries to the list, though the existing entries will continue to be updated. The last game to make the list was Tales & Games: Aladdin & the Magic Lamp.
July 15th Update
PeterHendee has suggested that it would be useful to track the Geek Rating as well. I didn't have a good reason not to do so, so from now on, the column "Geek." will display the Geek Rating for the game on the corresponding day. As usual: if you see anything strange, please send me a GeekMail to let me know.
