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

We have a return champion!!!

For the second year in a row the long out-of-print and much beloved 1830: Railways & Robber Barons is the most anticipated train game. However, I would much prefer Mayfair stop trying to game these polls and just release it to their anxious public rather than try and win in 2012 (just kidding; it has already gone to press).

However, it wasn't an easy run to the top for 1830. It was only toward the end of voting that it finally pulled away from Ticket to Ride: Alvin & Dexter, which some at first thought was a joke from Days of Wonder. Some even questioned whether the Ticket to Ride series had "jumped the shark". However, I think most fears were allayed when Alan Moon provided some background (The history of TICKET TO RIDE Monsters).

Although I wish this category had more nominations, the remainder of the list looks quite promising. I already have Last Train to Wensleydale, but I know I'll end up getting First Train to Nuremberg, and Rails of New England is one of my most anticipated games.

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