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

To keep the poll short, I restricted the subcategories to the top 20 nominees (or a few more if the 20th spot was tied).

There were a handful of games that didn't have enough nominations to make it into any category, and as I browsed through the list I saw that there were some really interesting games that were going to be excluded from the voting.

Hence, this category... a second chance to shine for those that either got buried on the back of the nomination pages or were late nominees. And, shine they did.

For example, the overwhelming winner of "The Best of the Rest" category, Z-Man's upcoming edition of Wok Star, garnered a number of votes that would have seen it place highly in the "Top 20 of 2011" overall category.

So, without further ado here are the Top 15 Most Anticipated "Best of the Rest" Games of 2011 as determined in this most unofficial, informal and unscientific experiment.
