Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)

Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× WELCOME TO TRASHDOME!

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;

Two games enter! One game leaves!

Ameritrash Sweet - 16

Skipped some of the matchups, didn't want to vote hype where I hadn't played one (or both) games.

Yeah, so that's the only matchup where I've played both games multiple times. Most of the other matchups I had only played one of the two games. I feel so inadequate.

#1 Eclipse - The highest rated Thematic game on BGG
vs.
#16 Cosmic Encounter - Matt Lotter claims it's the most over rated AT game

#2 War of the Ring - Wallace "All 2 player games are broken. Dew North strategy anyone"
vs.
#15 Arkham Horror - Typical co-op puzzle game

#5 Battlestar Galactica - Same game as Panic Station but PS can be played in 1/3 the time
vs.
#12 Space Alert - Fun for the first 2 plays but then everyone figures out how to win

#6. Runewars - The 2nd most over produced FFG game ever
vs.
#11. Space Hulk - Space Hulk was #1 on BGG for about 3 hours until the Eurodorks all rated it a 1.

#7. Twilight Imperium 3 - It took an expansion to fix this game and the game takes about 12 hours.
vs.
#10 Thunderstone: Dragonspire - How many fraking Thematic deck building games are in the top 20?

#8 Claustrophobia- Top ranked non deck building adventure game.
vs.
#9 Chaos in the Old World - El Grande knock off


The toughest one by far was BSG vs. Space Alert, 'cause I love both of those games, and Space Alert doesn't get nearly as much talk around here as it should. The campaign in the expansion is amazing and manages to make the most stressful game ever even more stressful.

I haven't played Mage Knight or Earth Reborn yet. I haven't played Eclipse either, but there is no way that wins against Cosmic. WotR vs. Arkham, I think they're both overrated.
