Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
F:ATties Five Favorites - Ameritrash
p.s. Wizwar is great

Battleball is great, but now that TechnoBowl exists, get that. It's so great.

I recall you and Drunk Dwarf Dan were fans, but is it still getting played?
I played some Man O War this summer and have looked at getting Dreadfleet. Not as a replacement for MoW, but just for a all in one fantasy naval game.
Top 5, huh?

I do love it, but i wouldn't classify it as a great game in a competitive or strategic sense, but both it dice duel always remind me why AT is great. They are always a bit of a raucous if in different ways. I think i last played it about a year and a half ago, given the frequency with which i play boardgames these days that is fairly recent.
I don't think people talk about such a thing as spirit of AT enough around here.
Godzilla hearts Jet Jaguar.
Merchant of Venus
Nexus Ops (okay maybe a little toy soldier shit)
Tigris and Euphrates (yeah, I said it)

1. Neuroshima Hex!
2. Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery
3. Cosmic Encounter
4. Cthulhu Wars
Hells bells. I adore #2-5. I guess I should give Neuroshima Hex! a try.
Same here. But I would want to play NH before I pay for it, because it looks like it might be a little too dry and abstract for my tastes.
1. Battlestar Galactica
2. Fortress America (love affair keeps it here)
3. Twilight Imperium 3
heading off the rest of the pack:
Middle Earth Quest
War of the Ring 2E
And from opening day eight years ago:
War of the Ring
The Fury of Dracula
Two demoted, not even in a top dozen these days.
