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!

#8. Maria -- Doesn't stand a chance but I'll give her at least one vote.

#7. Command & Colors: Ancients -- So damn accessible.

#3. Combat Commander -- Tougher call.

#4. Here I Stand -- Tougher tougher call.

My votes:


#8. Maria

#2. Paths of Glory

#3. Combat Commander

#4. Here I Stand


My vote against Up Front is a vote against the Up Front rulebook. Could be a great game, but I'll never know.

Twilight Struggle
This one was tough.

Paths of Glory
Just gonna keep voting for this until it wins or dies in a trench.

Combat Commander
Somewhat clunky and strange game, but the narrative is good.

Here I Stand
Didn't feel either of the games in this matchup much, but this was the more memorable.

Our own Schweig taught me the basics of the game via VASSAL in 15 minutes. If you're truly serious about that statement, download the module [or, if you have a Dropbox account, let me know and I'll put up a shared folder with both the module and the log] and I'll dig up my log. If you step through that, I think you should end up having a basic understanding of how to play the infantry/squad weps scenarios as well as a Rosetta Stone for the ordnance and vehicles sections. The rulebook does actually make sense once you see the game in action; it's getting to the "in action" part that blows.

Maria (TS is an over-rated POS)
C&C: Ancients
Hannibal:RvC (CC is another over-rated POS)
Up Front (This match up should have been the finals)
