I'm not intending to step on Brad's toes or anyone else's on the iOS team, but since I was "called out" to make my own poll, I decided, "why not?" It'll be some work, but in the end I think it will be interesting to see how/if the results differ from the nominations from the panel of experts.

I'm going to use the same categories that Brad used in the official 2011 iOS Board Games Reader's Choice Awards Voting! thread (be sure to vote there, too!). Just copy and paste the list below into a reply to this thread and add your votes.

Here are the rules:


1. One vote only for every category. If a category has multiple votes, none will be counted.

2. Games must be board games released in 2011. If you are unsure, check AppShopper. Votes for games not released in 2011 will not be counted.

3. Games unsuitable for BoardGameGeek will not be counted. "Born digital" board and card games are welcome and encouraged, but Angry Birds is not.

4. If you don't want to vote in a category, please leave it blank or enter N/A, etc. rather than deleting the whole entry.

5. Please only use this thread for voting. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

6. All votes must be entered by January 31, 2012 11:59:59PM EST.

7. Have fun!

For future "awards polls" I would suggest maybe adding a category for card games? I know Ascension would have likely swept that category but it would be nice to see some other good games recognized like Kard Kombat, Shadow Era, Cabals and Assassin's Creed: Recollection get some love...

Well as I kind of expected was going to be the case, not enough votes here to get any kind of meaningful stats.
