The good people of London on Board, the UKs largest gaming club, have just finished voting in our fifth annual game of the year poll. The aim of the poll is to provide a snapshot of what our club was like during the previous year and over time these polls will allow us to see the shifting preferences of our members and how we evolve as a club.

All members of the club are invited to submit, in order of preference, the top ten games they most enjoyed playing during the past year. The poll is not a survey of new games (although a members list could contain only new releases - many do) but can contain games from any era, and ones choices can be games one has only just discovered or perennial favourites.

Points are then awarded from 10 for a 1st place selection down to 1 for a 10th place selection. Once the poll closes points are tallied to produce the definitive London on Board Top 40 Games of the Year. In the case of two games having the same number of points the breaker is the game that has been selected in most members Top 10s, then the game with the most number of highest place selections.

In total 103 members voted and between them nominated a staggering 345 different games.

The Results will be posted on the 9th /10th of February. …
