Here are the modified results of this poll. I subtracted two votes for each previous email tournament a game has been in that was sponsored by this site. This only includes multivariant tournaments run by myself, Antoine Fourriere, or Glenn Overby. Since games with seven votes still numbered fewer than the voters, I also included games with six votes in the final results. Not counting Chaturanga, which as far as anyone knows is the same as Shatranj, there will be 35 games to rank in the upcoming poll. Since Falcon Chess and Falcon Chess 100 are both protected by the Falcon Chess patent, I will leave them out unless I receive permission from George Duke to include them in the tournament. That would leave 33 games to rank.
