This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.
Although you should be familiar with both games, there is no rule that says you have to have played both of them. The only rule in Trashdome is this;
I didn't realize there was a PRE-Z version of Prophecy! I kind of agree that the endgame is less-than-satisfying unless there's a perfect storm where all the characters get buffed at essentially the same rate. I think Talisman did the end-game really well; get the crown, then go bash the fuck out of your subjects. That's how Ameritrash should be.
Almost the Anti-Monopoly.
I'd say that Mission Red Planet rates right around a 7.5/10. Maybe higher. I'd rather play it than Small World, for sure. Hell, I'd probably call it an 8. I've played it several times now, and we played twice in one night with my buddy who just had a cancer treatment. He couldn't remember shit, was kind of grumpy (all of which is understandable) and so it was tough to rate it using those days, but the other 2 times I played it with the same folks all but one really liked it. In fact, one liked it better than Risk: Legacy.
There wasn't a whole lot votes this week but I think we have clear winners thanks to comments from a few people who have played a number of these games.
Top card - Solo games from Victory Point Games: Nemo's War - The winner
Zulus on the Ramparts
Undercard - Newer Math Trade Stuff:
Prophecy Mission Red Planet
O Zoo Le Mio
Robin Hood Undercard: (See Ancient_of_MuMu's next post) Legend of Robin Hood - Thank you Space Ghost
Legends of Robin Hood
I hope this helps Ancient_of_MuMu. I think I'll have to borrow Zulus, Nemo's or Hero of Weehauken from IguanaDitty one of these days. Superfly, I'm glad you're enjoying Mission Red Planet it's a fun game. Luckily, I still get to play it with Uba or with the locals.
I played one game of Nemo's War on the weekend. It shows promise but I am a bit unsure at it seemed impossibly difficult (I lost through too many ships in the ocean on about week 26, with a score about -25). But then who wants an easy solo game?
I am aiming to play Mission Red Planet and Legend of Robin Hood over Easter.
