I'm posting this as a preview of the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2018 final voting polls.

I'm posting this preview in the hopes that a second or third set of eyes might spot any significant errors, because once polls on BGG are created they can not be changed.

If you see any egregious errors leave a comment. At this late stage I probably won't adjust any of the categories unless something is extraordinarily out of place.

I won't add any categories unless it moves a game out of Best of the Rest and into another category.

If the formatting looks a little weird that's ok, because this is the raw format that gets input into the BGG poll entry form.

And now for the preview:

It's almost quite redundant to have "crowdfunded" category when the "overall" category has only 4 "non-crowdfunded" games out of 50. In other words, they simply already have top 1-46 "crowdfunded" games in the list.

Also, I don't know about the definition of "historical" here but I see few fantasy themed games in the category including 7th continent...

With the prevalence of crowd funded games, I'm more worried about a crowd funded game ending up on the non-crowd funded category.

I already noticed Journey Wrath of Demons was there and removed it.

Also, if anyone notices any of the Best of the Rest (other than the Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, and Runewars expansions) that are non crowd funded, I'll move them out of BotR and into Non-Crowd funded.

As for historical... I generally prefer to leave it to the voters to decide how historical a game is, even if those aren't titles I would personally vote for.

Although I understand why some people consider 7th Continent historical, it doesn't fit my personal definition of historical and I won't be voting for it in that category.

Might combine the The 7th Continent expansions together for the poll so they don't end up splitting the votes. I remember we had that issue last year with a different game (was it Ascension?)

Wow - how many titles and BGG members have been involved in creating these lists?

Not sure if you have a full breakdown of all the stats but I'm sure they'll make fascinating reading if anyone intends to pick them apart... [not volunteering... yet]

Well there's 475 entries (games and expansions nominated.) With a very rough estimate of 50 thumbs per title, that would be 23,750 total. Lets pretend the average user gives 5 thumbs, that would make 4,750 participants.
This is of course all wild speculation.

The highest vote count is 1,332 so we know we have at least that many participants. Unless of course one person made multiple new accounts just to mess with this very unofficial process. But surely not!

+1 in addition that would conform to how other games have been treated by having a single entry for all 2018 expansions.

I don't know if this is intentional, but you have the Mansions of Madness 2018 expansions under nocrowd, but not under expansions or cooperative.

Agreed, additionally they were nominated for different categories which is confusing

Same goes for both Raiders of the North Sea expansions. They should be combined.

7th Continent and Raiders expansions are combined.

Their combination opened a few spots for some new titles.

Also, the FFG CCG expansions are moved to non-crowd funded.

I'll check back in a bit, then start building the polls.

Why is Nusfjord in "anticipated for 2018" when I bought it at my FLGS in 2017? It's a 2017 release.

Wow, a lot of games. All of the games I care about have made it into either the economic or historical categories, I guess those are the ones for me to watch.

... they don't want to completely undercut sales of individual games?

I'm curious how the Under the Radar vote will come out. It seems like the most interesting category, provided most people vote according to the rules.

A clever way to measure the value of exposure in this contest to publishers?

Just because a game gets nominated for certain categories doesn't mean it gets enough votes to make it into the vote. Since there are very few Train games nominated, it was much, much easier to make it into that category.
