We made it through a week of nominations and a week and a half of voting and the results are in... after nearly 600 overall votes... the Five Most Anticipated Economic Games of 2010.

Of all the subcategories, the Economic Games subcategory received some of the heaviest voting.

Perhaps the only surprise (to me) in this category is that none of the train games made the top five.

Place: 1st
Votes: 69
Nomination: Automobile

In 12th place overall, I'm eager to try this Mayfair reprint of this Treefrog 2009 series game... especially after recent plays of Brass and God's Playground.

Place: 2nd

Nomination: Goa --- Remade

Without enough nominations votes to make the top 50, the remake/reprint of Goa climbs up to 2nd in the economic game category.

Place: 3rd
Votes: 62
Nomination: Vinicola

Although VinĂ­cola placed 8th overall, it is 3rd in the economic game category.

This was another surprise. You would think that with a last name like "Vinyard" I'd be up on all the wine games.

Place: 4th
Votes: 57
Nomination: Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery --- Expansion

Placing 10th overall, this expansion for the fantastic Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery doesn't fare as well in the economic category.
