1d6 = (5) = 5

Since the definition of Ameritrash is generally ambiguous, I'll first define how I'll categorize games between Ameritrash and Euro:

Ameritrash = primarily tactical (although strategy might play some role)
Euro = primarily strategic (although tactics might play some role)

Here are my top 5 (at the moment):

ST:FC

The Resistance

SH(3rd)

SW

Pandemic

Honourable mentions to Magic: The Gathering, Zombie in my Pocket and Poker, but I think they're more strategic than tactical.

I haven't had an opportunity to play Earth Reborn or Claustrophobia yet, but they're high on my "want to play" list. And Risk: Legacy is on the shelf, patiently waiting for the first time our dedicated group assembles to do battle.

Ironically, one of my top 5 Ameritrash games (The Resistance) has no luck element whatsoever (after role cards have been dealt out).

It has to be a D10. No wait, a D12 (because of one of my favorites, Ikusa).
1d12 = (1) = 1

LOL laugh

Ok, then it's going to be just

Of course as a true Ameritrasher it must be played with all expansions. cool

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

Phew! Smells like squid up in here.
1d6 = (2) = 2

Easy:





Bryan rolls sixes and I roll twos. Guess which one of us is the Ameritrash fan? Although twos in MR are actually pretty good.

Twilight Imperium and Android are up there too, but the dice gods are fickle.

That's it? Nuts!



With Horned Rat, of course (old Skaven player, here.)

Sorry, other amazing games -- guess I'll take my love of you to my grave....

Yeah, rolling a 2 out of 6 is pretty par for the course with you (skipsizemore). Then again, the 2 you picked are probably two of the five or so thematic games you don't mind admitting you like

Battlestar Galactica is in my Top 10 overall. Really captures the best parts of the television series.

Battles of Westeros has the best mechanics from any of the Command & Colors/Memoir '44/BattleLore.



Gotten lots of play from Marvel Heroes, though I seem to be the only one in my gaming group who enjoys it.



For the old guard, Shogun gets the nod.
