There can be only one twenty!

The popularity of expansions is undeniable. They typically allow us to extend our favorite games in new directions with minimal investment of either dollars or time to learn a new rule set.

At times they take the core game in new directions, and at other times they can fix or drastically improve a broken game.

Some companies, such as Fantasy Flight Games and CMON Limited have integrated expansion releases into their corporate financial plan.

Yet, there remain a number of games that the publisher has, for whatever reason, failed to release a much needed expansion... hence this competition to determine the 20 Most Desired (Unplanned) Expansion of 2015.

After a 4 week open nomination period the nominations list is now closed and we have the top 50 nominees that will vie to make the cut for the top 20 in this most in-formal and un-official contest.

Don't forget to vote in the companion polls:
20 Most Anticipated Games of 2015
20 Most Desired Reprints of 2015


Updates:

As we hit key dates and numbers of votes I will periodically post updates.

Voting runs until Sunday, January 18th

Vote for any and all you are excited about. You can vote for multiple games in one category, and/or the same game in different categories.

Whether you're a fan, designer, publisher, designer's mom, or publisher's grandma campaigning during the vote is encouraged.

Heck, there isn't even a rule preventing campaigning within 1000 feet of the polls. Feel free to campaign here or anywhere else.

Good luck to all the finalists!!!
