So I'm not at BGG CON (someone has to stay home to feed the ponies). But that doesn't have to stop me from keeping my ear close to the ground! Here's the list of the winners of the 2011 Golden Geek Awards.

Note that Dominant Species, 7 Wonders, and A Few Acres of Snow were winners in multiple categories!

So what do we think of the results? As expected? Or some surprises? Let's discuss!
