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!

Waros / Hybrid mulitplayer conflict games - Sweet 16

04 Mar 2013 12:31 - 05 Mar 2013 00:03 #146049 by KingPut
Over the last 10 years more and more games can be classified as Waros-hybrids as players are looking for shorter games that take the the best euro mechanisms mixed with good dose of conflict and some random fun. With designers like Vlaada Chvatil, Wallace, Henn, Jensen, Gerts and one of my new favorite designers Christian Marcussen we should see more great hybrids from this group.

Voting starts now and will run through Friday.

I'm only voting on match-ups in which I've played both games:

14. Mare Nostrum

(I hope Shogun, Imperial and Advanced Civilization do well so that I can vote for them in the next round)

- Clash of Cultures: Because I've played it, and I think it might approach what all civ games SHOULD be.

- Eclipse: Awfully well-designed and balanced, and uses it's Euro influences to great effect.

- Mare Nostrum: DS is a good game, but Mare Nostrum is something far more special and interactive.

- Haven't played Sid Meyer's Civ or God's Playground, so I shall abstain here.

- Why is God's playground on there twice?

- Imperial. Duh.

- Small World/Vinci, just because Small World has proven to be one of the more reliable games of the past five years.

- Civ obviously is the more seminal game, and so it gets the choice here.

- That sucks. Cyclades is great, but it can't beat the original. Wait...how is Civ a hybrid?

Are there two different games called Gods Play Ground? Where's Warrior Knights? A Game of Thrones? TI3?
