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

Although the top 2 spots are held by fantasy games, there are a number of top 15 entries to warm the heart of a grognard.

I was a little surprised at the high placement of Gears of War: The Board Game, given the general feeling that it is akin to vaporware, but it appeared to fare well against Fantasy Flight's other nominee, Tide of Iron: Fury of the Bear.

One title in particular that caught my attention during the nominations phase, The God Kings: Warfare at the Dawn of Civilization, 1500 – 1260BC, didn't make the top 15.

Without further ado here are the 15 Most Anticipated Wargames of 2011 as determined in this most unofficial, informal and unscientific experiment.
