About four years ago there was a great blog post by Ancient_of_MuMu called The Moustaches of Sci-Fi Calender. I'm not going to do a calendar. I could force another seven characters onto the list, but frankly the eye-patch look is harder to pull off than you might think. So I'm going with the Top 5.

DOOM: The Board Game was released in 2004 by Fantasy Flight Games only to be unfairly maligned as being too difficult to win. This review aims to set the record straight about the real good and bad points about this game. Make no mistake though as this is ultimately a positive review about what I consider to be both the greatest sci-fi dungeon-crawler board game ever made and one of the best tactical miniatures board games ever made.

In 2008 the classic Risk board game was released with a revised rule set, which among other changes made the game more goal-oriented and significantly shorter to play. Risk Halo Wars is clearly based on that same revised rule set while adding in its own flavor. That’s right; this is not a simple word-for-word reprint of the revised rules as some have speculated it would be.

A month ago I asked my fellow F:ATties to list their top five favorite Ameritrash games. Nearly 70 members responded and even though this information is completely useless to everyone its somehow still interesting to see. Let's start with the top 9 games since top ten is so cliche. Arkham Horror = 32 Battlestar Galactica = 27 Cosmic Encounter = 24 Space Hulk = 17 Fury Of Dracula = 15 War Of The Ring = 14 Twilight Imperium 3rd = 13 Talisman = 12 Dune = 11 No real surprises there to anyone who spends enough time...

EVE: The Second Genesis was published in 2006 by CCP. Designed by the same people behind the EVE Online game and really for two-players only despite what the packaging says. It followed the standard CCG model with cards available in starter decks and booster packs containing cards of different rarities. You may have noticed how I just wrote in past tense about the game. That’s because EVE: The Second Genesis is no longer in print. A victim of practically zero marketing outside of the MMO and hardly any retailers carrying it. Incidentally I’ve never played EVE Online so I...

This started out as one of my usual rambling forum posts, but it's a slow news day so I've cleaned it up a bit to make it more suitable for a front page article. Still, I'm not known for coherent writing so attempt to read at your own peril.

Ever since Ken B was killed in that horrible tractor accident there's been a shortage of front page news at the Fort. This announcement is perhaps overdue, although pre-orders are still available so that depends on your point of view. Regardless its better late than never so without further ado; SPACE HULK IS BACK, BABY!!! September 5, 2009 is a day that should be marked on the Ameritrash calendar as the day one of the classics came back to us. The...
