Last year, BGG had a live tracking of what games were hot at the fair.

Just wondering if you'll do that again this year.

Usually starts reported on Friday. Not much playing going on the first day and traffic is a bit lighter before the weekend.

That geekbuzz thing is a total bust. It's pretty obvious that geographical closeness to the BGG booth is the #1 factor for a high game rating.

I'm sorry, but handing out voting cards to everyone passing by is a Bad Idea (tm). The game ratings here are given by BGG members and so should the geekbuzz be organized : allow only BGG members to logon at Spiel and vote.

We were there for 3 days, saw a lot of good stuff, but didn't bother with the geekbuzz because of how it's currently organized.

Unlike last year when it was pretty obvious Tzolk'in and Terra Mystica were the top games, there was no clear top game this year.
