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!

I love these games and there is like 6 out 8 match ups that are very difficult for me to decide who to vote for. So start voting now and hopefully I won't need to break any ties. Note: You don't need to vote for all 8 match ups just pick the match ups your most interested in.

#1. Summoners War
vs.
#20 Shadowlords!

#2. Risk - any version

These are terrible pairings IMHO, Pete. This is the first trashdome that has me shaking my head. Quarriors should've been paired against KoT, not Epic Duels. ED should've been paired against something akin to it, like perhaps Heroscape or Thunder Road.

But, it is what it is.

#20 Shadowlords!

#19. Thunderoad

#3. Survive

#15. Star Wars Epic Duels

#12. Heroquest

#6. Heroscape - any and all versions

#7. Starwars Queens Gambit

#9. Can't Stop (only to sink Quarriors)

pairings are probably in the traditional "ranking" format

Love it or hate it I use a similar system to how the BCS ranks College Football teams or Basketball teams for the NCAA tournment or basically I use the giant super computer better know as TOS or BGG.

Yes, I could have used TNT ranking or the Barnesian system or my own KingPut ranking but this was easier and I felt less bias. Besides, the better game will end up coming out on top in trashdome's head to head matchups. Here's how it works. I started with the top of the BGG rankings #1 is Twilight Stuggle, #2 Agricola, #3 Through the Ages(none are not exactly a Trash Jr. games). Eventually, I moved down to #26 Summoner Wars: Master Set. I think to myself, my daughter and her friends play Summoners Wars, I would have dug Summoners Wars as a kid, the game has dice so Summoners Wars received the #1 seat for Trash Jr. games. Than I worked my way through all 20 or so rankings.

By the end of this we might have Quarriors paired against King of Tokyo or Epic Duels vs. Queens Gambit but we'll have to see how the early round voting goes. Who would have thought Dune would have ended up matched up against the unranked Cosmic Encounter in the Ameritrash Finals.

I want to way in on this but How can I choose between the best games ever made. I will say however that anyone that votes against Thunder Road is dead to me...
