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!

AGRICOLA vs DOMINION: The Barnes Eurolovin' special.

Heh...for most people here, it'd be a vote for which one you hate the least.

Totally AGRICOLA on that one. At least it acts like it all means something.

Feh. They're Euros so they'd have the patented Dusty Rhodes finish .

Shouldn't the two entires be significantly different?

Anyway, I'd like to see STEVE WEEKS vs. OCTAVIAN.

I think MEQ may need a little more time to simmer. As it is, I think it would get swamped by AH because more people have probably played it.

I don't think I could handle Blood Bowl vs. Space Hulk, but Doom vs. Space Hulk in a couple of months might be interesting.

The whole point of trashdome is that it is supposed to be hard. I don't think Doom vs Space Hulk is that much of a contest as the majority prefer the Hulk. But Space Hulk vs Blood Bowl? Two of GWs best boardgames. That is a hard decision.

I should add that the winner of this one gets brought by me.

People keep saying that Hulk is better than Doom. But so far only comment I have read is that the spawning in Hulk is better. What about the rest? Having a Trashdome would mean getting some discussion going as to why people prefer one over the other.

(I'm still trying to decide if I should get Space Hulk since I have Doom and we just started playing/enjoying that one. Hulk is not in the store here yet so there is still a possibility?...)

Ok, how about SH is faster paced than Doom? It doesn't drag on for hours. There's a definite sense of tension in SH that you don't get from Doom because the marines are always working under a timer to represent the lightning quick reactions of the 'stealers compared to them.

Of course they're not totally the same game either, and each offers different aspects of the same sub-genre. In Doom you can work as a team (although you could try it in SH as well, but it's more a 2-p game), "customize" your marines with skills (drawn randomly mostly), upgrade to better weapons as you move along, etc. And there's a bigger variety of aliens/demons than just genestealers. The Alien player draws cards that he can play for different effects.

Oh yeah, and in SH, each miniature usually dies with a single hit taken. So Genestealers tend to die in droves from weapons fire, but as soon as they close up to the marines, they'll make them pay dearly and it can soon be over for the mission.
