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

This category yielded a bonus. The Tom Jolly classic Wiz-War and the unnamed Summoner Wars expansion both rallied late past Yggdrasil to tie for 10th.

In 2010 Dominion: Alchemy and Dominion: Prosperity only managed second place behind Runewars. However, Dominion has shown its staying power and this year Dominion: Cornucopia took a commanding early lead in voting and held off a late comeback by The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game to command the #1 spot.

I was a little surprised that Belfort, Olympus and The Red Dragon Inn 3 didn't place higher.

Without further ado here are the 11 Most Anticipated Fantasy Games of 2011 as determined in this most unofficial, informal and unscientific experiment.

At the time of nomination, this was Summoner Wars: Unnamed Expansion

It would appear that there are now two expansions in the BGG database slated for 2011 which share the victory:
Summoner Wars: Cloaks Faction Deck
Summoner Wars: Jungle Elves Faction Deck
