Wow!!! This year was the most voters ever - 12529.

The final voting poll is here.

Another year has come and gone and it is time to award the house cup 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2018. And, in first place, 7th Continent's expansions. Yes, yes, well done, Slytherin 7th Continent. Well done, 7th Continent, however recent events must be taken into account, and I have a few last minute votes to award.

First, to Eric Lang of Rising Sun... no, I'm not Dumbledore. There are no further votes to award. 7th Continent was the run away winner as the first title to ever break the 2,000 vote mark.

This year's competition also saw the most voters ever with over 12,000 people participating in this little competition.

Congratulations not only to all the winners, but also to all the nominees. When you think about the amount of time that has collectively gone into the development, play testing, and publication of all the nominees it is mind-boggling... not to mention all the hours of enjoyment that people will get playing all these games.

Without further ado, I present the final results of the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2018.
