7 Wonders Dominates

Race for the Galaxy Returns to Championship Form


Dominion and Cosmic Encounter Make List For Third Year

ALIEN FRONTIERS AND SUMMONER WARS RETURN

Tasty Minstrel's Strong Showing


****************************************


After a 3 week nomination period, and a 2 week voting period the results are in.

There are certain games whose expansions have become perennial mainstays of the voters... namely Dominion and Cosmic Encounter have made the list three years in a row.

Appearing for their second year in a row are Alien Frontiers and Summoner Wars.

After claiming the crown in 2010, Race for the Galaxy took last year off, but returned this year to solidly claim the #2 spot.

Showing the strength of their 2011 releases, Tasty Minstrel Games which is relatively new as a publisher, has captured two of the slots in the final list.

Personally, I find this category interesting as I own 8 of the 10 base games here. I also have a particular fondness for expansions because they typically are significantly cheaper than another game, generally require a less of a time investment, and like most people I tend to only buy expansions for games that I already like.

Without further ado here are the 10 Most Anticipated Game Expansions of 2012 as determined in this most unofficial, informal and unscientific experiment.

Previous Year's Results:
Most Anticipated Games of 2011 - EXPANSIONS
Most Anticipated Games of 2010 - EXPANSIONS
