I used to judge Ameritrash games very badly, considering the theme was not what I really needed to enjoy a game and hating games based on dice rolls. I used to... because gaming in Japan gave me the chance to meet Ameritrash gamers and discover how cool some of these games are. Now loving both Eurogames and Ameritrash games makes me wonder how I'm going to increase my gaming budget.

So, in your opinion, what Ameritrash games should any Eurogames lovers try before they have the right to say you're wrong?

By the way, can't anyone find a better word for "Ameritrash"? I really don't think this word is the one that fits the best these kind of games. Or am I wrong again?

I love this game. The theme is really cool, the spellbook building is great fun, and on top of that, luck is not what will make you win (but you still get to roll dice!!).

This could be an interesting choice, especially, if someone loves currently hot zombie theme.
There are cards for planning your actions and players can try to use different strategies to win. Still - the result more often is decided by dice.

I think this is a prime example of an Ameritrash game that plays very Euro-y. Excellent game!

Absolutely excellent hack & slash game!

Not complex but plenty of replay value in the scenarios and with a build as you go board it rarely plays the same way twice.

This is one of my "goto" two player games!

Don't just play a scenario with a Eurogamer, play a full campaign. You might have to force him first, but after a few hours, the grin on his face will turn to a smile

Would this one be considered Ameritrash? I guess it would, at least for the theme it explores. Right?
