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 both but Heroscape made a big impression on me and is responsible for getting me back into gaming. I don't play it as much now as I used to, but the kids are only 2-3 years away from getting into it, so I'm expecting to have a lot of fun with Heroscape in the future.

I love Summonder Wars and I haven't played Heroscape, so I thought I'd balance out the voting.

Summoner Wars is ok, but as with all card-driven games suffers from getting to choose from a list of potentially cheesy-ass options. In Heroscape you get to do what you want.

Vote: Heroscape. I've blown $250 on it and don't regret one penny.


I suppose if I had spent $250 on Heroscape I'd vote for Heroscape. I'm only down $20 on Heroscape and about $55 on Summoners War.

Well timed match up because I am gearing up for some HS soon and just played a game of Summoner Wars out of the Blue.

SW is fun, but it does feel like a filler, and 2 player fillers are in a sense pointless (unless you are waiting for the 3rd player to arrive?). I’m yet to be convinced there is much there – units simply fall too easily. For us it plays very tit-for-tat, I summon some units, move and make 3 attacks (prob 2 kills) then the other guy summons, kills 2 of my attacking units, and repeat. Board-play strategy is either eluding me or there isn’t much there.

HS is hands down the best value in gaming there ever was and ever will be. As I have said before, the game should be a mickey mouse but it isn’t – for all it’s stripped down rules and simplified play, when compared to the ‘big boy’ miniature games it loses practically nothing. WH40K doesn’t feel like it has any more real gameplay then heroscape has, nor does any of the others. HS feels like a full on minis game, unlike say battleball which does feel like a mickey mouse version of Bloodbowl.
In fact HS is possibly the only ‘light’ game that has succeeded in matching its elders, it really is a brilliant design.
Yeah, setting up the terrain sucks (I hated lego as a kid, and I can’t design battlefields for shit.) but I wouldn’t trade my copy for one with a flat board even in a fit.

Bridges, castles, volcanos, trees, fucking icecaps – who would have suspected we’d get all this awesome shit when the game first appeared,. I was surprised when we got the first wave.

This is the game that will pull the next generation of ATers.

This vote is too easy.

And now we hear that they they've pulled the plug. RIP Heroscape. You are Legend.

I own both---and played both. Summoner Wars is fine enough but the one I'll remember playing with my son in years to come...Heroscape, without a doubt. No contest, here.

I tried Heroscape a couple of times but couldn't get into it. I liked Summoner Wars the first time I played (and every time since).
