86 on '96! The vote is over; thanks to the 46 people who participated. For the first time, there was a significant number of folks who voted for fewer than 3 games. Not surprisingly, many of us are finding fewer games worthy of our vote. Anyway, hereâs the top 10, with the vote totals listed, along with the gameâs original rank in parentheses, and n/a indicating that the game wasnât originally nominated:
1. Expedition - 16 (2)
2. Entdecker â 11 (1)
3. Carabande â 10 (3)
4. Detroit-Cleveland Grand Prix â 8 (5)
4. Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage â 8 (n/a)
6. Iron Dragon â 7 (13)
7. Bamboleo â 6 (19)
7. Quandary â 6 (6)
7. Serenissima â 6 (4)
10. Netrunner â 5 (n/a)
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty surprised to see the same three games on top. Not that they're bad games, but none of them are evergreens, so I thought we'd see at least a little movement at the top. There really wasn't that much change from the original election. Hannibal makes a nice showing and Bamboleo (which only got 1 vote originally) gets a lot more love this time. The big loser is Serenissima, which missed grabbing an MCA by only one vote in the original election, but did considerably worse this time around.
Only three games were shut out: Campanile, Grand National Derby, and Yucata. You can check out how each game did, together with who voted for them, on the app.
So were you surprised to see a repeat of the top 3, or was that fairly predictable? Tell us what you think!
