I ran an election where Finnish gamers could vote for their favourite games. There was no restriction on the publication date of the games - only condition was that they had played and enjoyed the game during the time period of 1.9.2002 - 31.8.2003. The results weren't perhaps very surprising, but interesting nonetheless. There was a total of 125 voters, giving 760 votes (each voter could give a vote for five to seven different games) to a total of 222 different games.

Here are all the games with at least seven votes (entering more than 25 games is a pain, so I'm not listing more - maybe later). See the rest at <http://www.melankolia.net/pelit/aanestystulokset03.html>;.

47 votes. The obvious winner. It was a close race for a while, but then Puerto Rico just ran away.

37 votes. This was a bit obvious too. Some votes were lost to the different expansions, if all Carcassonne fans had voted for the basic game only, it might have won. (I instructed people to vote for expansion, if they preferred the game with it.)

19 votes. Winner of the traditional games, beat Chess easily. I suppose gamers are a bit bored with Chess, while Go is new and interesting.

16 votes. Not a surprise. Majority of the votes were for Citadels, but some were for Ohne Furcht und Adel. Wouldn't have placed this high without the English edition, no doubt about that.

11 votes. Best of the 2003 games. Also shows why I didn't limit the eligible games to the 2003 releases. People aren't just that quick and there are very few people who buy loads of new games immediately after they are released.

9 votes. Miniature gamers show up. Games Workshop games got votes, but not that many. Perhaps because they don't play other board games and thus weren't interested in the poll?
