[POLLS] 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2012 --- RESULTS POSTED --- 1600+ Votes

The dominance of Sci-Fi and Fantasy themes as well as reprints and expansions continues unabated in nearly all categories.

In the Merchant of Venus reprint battle pitting Stronghold Games against Fantasy Flight Games, Stronghold is continuing to extend the lead. I wonder about the motivation of voting though. Is it truly anticipation of Stronghold's reprint or a rebuke of Fantasy Flight that is driving voting?

Without further ado, here is how voting stands on the second day.
