Welcome to the "Essen Geek" tool website. The origins of this too date back to the months before the "Internationale Spieltage Essen 2011" where I became overwhelmed with the list of announced games over at BoardGameGeek. Even though that list was but a fraction of the whole mass of games presented at "SPIEL" I found it difficult to keep track of what I was interested in and (even more so) what I had already evaluated and dismissed. So I began to write myself a small web script that fetched that list and allowed me to mark and comment each entry.
When SPIEL 2012 approached and BGG opened their new preview list I asked around if anyone else would be interested in such a tool. Several folks replied and I began to overhaul my scripts and extend them to allow multiple users to use it. I then converted all the existing functionality and have been adding new features ever since.
For now the available features are:
Tremendous thanks to Stu Nicholls for creating the menu and his generous help to get it working for my IOS users.
