The general forums have threads that go past two pages relatively frequently. What factors provide a thread in the different game forums enough fuel for it to gain 50+ posts? I looked at the top active threads (found in http://www.boardgamegeek.com/top50.htm) and summarize them below. Turns out controversy helps

I'll fill in the rest of the game threads that have reached 50+ posts later - until then, here's the top 25.

Knee Deep in the Dead Walkthrough
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=68642

Mike Zebrowski (Mike zebrowski) links to a very well made powerpoint presentation breaking down a 3p vs Invader excursion through the first scenario of Doom. Rules discussion and analysis of what is and is not optimal play in the situations presented ensues.

DEW North (Like a Witch King out of Mordor.)
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=76943

Magic Geek (Magic Geek) details what he believes to be a sure-win strategy for the Shadow Alliance in War of the Ring. Skepticism turns to genuine debate, as the Strider-sprint is offered as a counter-strategy.

Will Shadows be in the top 50 in a years time?
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=72962

Nick Case (Big Bad Lex) poses the question in the context of a lengthy list of observations after his first game. The denziens of BGG debated. A LOT. Phrases like 'too much luck' and 'glorified card game' are tossed around by detractors, which riled up fans of the game. Action finally (and mercifully) died off after SoC fell out of the Top 50 in late November.

Why this game should definitely be deleted...
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=20052

Mortiz Eggert (Eggo) makes a case for this 'game' (actually an example of hateful propoganda from WWII era Germany) should be deleted from the database. Some very intelligent discussion takes place on both sides. Ultimately, it remains in the database for historical purposes. I assume the thread was locked because there is little new to add that hasn't already been said from the different sides.

Is the FP strategy broken?
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=31014

Deja vu, only this time it's the Fellowship player that is unstoppable in WotR. Michael Bolduc (Flyboy) puts forth that a full out sprint by the Fellowship tilts the game too much in the favor of the hobbits. Mind you this was about a half year before DEW North (above) was posted. This post spawned some incredible analysis of efficiency in WotR.

So, are we missing something?
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=69337

David Tolin (DavidT) had a sub-par first play of SOC and asks BGG if they did something wrong. Strategy discussion fills the first two and a half pages when, eventually, replies spin off into an argument over how clear the rules are.

User Review
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=25449

A very thorough review by Jay Moore (MUKid) gets a lot of attention for, essentially, saying that the game is both 'light' and 'complex'. Being one of the first reviews for the game didn't hurt either.

"BGG-Official" Doom rules-set
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=36478

Balance Craver (BalanceCraver) craves balance from DOOM, and taps the BGG users' collective creativity to attain it. But his method of asking does more to spark a conversation about FFG's playtesting in general and the quality of DOOM's rules in particular. Interesting note - this thread is what lead to Mike Zebrowski to partake in his Knee Deep in the Dead Walkthrough (above).

Upgrade woe
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=83214

When FFG released the second edition of Runebound they offered owners of the first edition a way to upgrade. Charles A. Smith (Greybear) didn't like how they went about it, however - namely the limited window FFG allowed for customers to take advantage of the offer. Discussion of what constitutes good business practice ensues.

Are some of the races in TI3 unbalanced? Lorenzo Mele (Blackpope) poses the question and BGGers respond. (The answer, btw, is 'yes' but that's okay because it's a diplomacy game )

"Ignore Gondor" strategy
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewarticle.php3?threadid=29077

Yet another WotR strategy thread goes over 50 posts. In this one Scott DiBerardino (sdiberar) recommends ignoring Gondor entirely, reasoning that it isn't worth the effort. Scott suggests making up the points in the DEW line before DEW north became popular.
