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!

Malloc actually played Dune last night so he should know.

No one invited me!

I'll be honest, I can't understand Cosmic Encounter being held up as the pinnacle of Ameritrash. Given the choice I'd be voting for Heroscape or TI:3 or some other majorly piece-heavy smash mouth title. But given the two cube-pushers that remain Dune is the only real choice. At least it has the weight to carry itself with some authority.

This is simply what boiled out of 16 iniital choices. I didn't see Heroscape, Axis and Allies, and many other titles originally, and this is a pretty insular group, so you kind-of have to expect the result.

I think it was actually taken from the top 16 AT games on BGG, removing reprints/expansions like WotR collector's edition.

Yeah, and those guys at TOS are a hell of a group to be basing anything on :)

I mean, the reason Space Hulk isn't a 10 is because 1/3 of voters gave a 1-vote based on the GW Legal Clusterfuck, and another 1/6th gave a 1 vote because they were pissed that their beloved cube pushers were CRUSHED beneath the power armor of a fully armed, genetically engineered Space Marine sent forth by the Emperor of Mankind himself.

I gave it a 7, because while Space Hulk is a fun game for the first few tries, it pales in comparison to the much superior and more tactically satisfying Legions of Steel.

And it's just like Cosmic Encounter, as while it's dumb fun for while you play it and is more accessible for regular folks, it just pales in comparison to a much better gaming experience that is Dune

You are 100% correct. TOS - Thematic ranking

SuperflyTNT: This is simply what boiled out of 16 iniital choices. I didn't see Heroscape, Axis and Allies, and many other titles originally, and this is a pretty insular group, so you kind-of have to expect the result.


I'd bet if I included Axis and Allies it would have lost in the first round and Heroscape wouldn't have made past the Elite 8 unless it had some favorable match ups.

I've never played Dune, and Cosmic gives a certain biological satisfaction.

VOTE: COSMIC ENCOUNTER

A certain biological satisfaction? Like taking a piss after a long drive?
