At Rincon ( http://www.rincongames.com ), occurring at the end of the month, there will be a final match among the top players of the show. This will have all players playing two games STRAIGHT FROM ESSEN!

This is your chance to vote on which games you would like to see!

I will put up the two games that I think people are the most interested in. If you are interested in seeing/possibly playing another game, add it to this list. If you are interested in a game that's already been added, thumb the entry. The list will close in time for the leading games to be acquired at Essen, and brought straight to your table!

Only votes from registered Rincon participants will be included in the final tally! Only "Euro-style" games are eligible for this particular event.

In order to qualify for the Final Showdown, you must have accumulated one of the highest amount of points by participating in earlier Eurogame tournaments during Rincon.

Note also that the Winsome 2008 releases are not eligible as they will have their own feature during the con.

EDIT[/b}

I'm going to disqualify Dominion. It should be available in the US by the end of October, and will hopefully have its own showcase.

[b]EDIT2


Winners are:

Le Havre
Confucious

Steel Driver will be available in a separate event.

Uwe Rosenberg's follow-up to the insanely popular Agricola.

Here's a game I'd like to try out. I like the designers but I don't know anything about the game. It sure looks pretty.

I am a shameless lover of sushi. I'm wondering if this game will give me the same head rush I get from the real wasabi.
