Miniatures? Check.
Combat? Check.
Star Wars theme? Check.

My favorite Ameritrash game. If this game didn't have a Star Wars theme, I'd probably consider it a dud.

Honorable mention: Memoir '44

I guess this is my Ameritrash game of choice!!! I love the game! Sure...the scenarios out of the box were a bit on the bad side...but the game expansions and fan created scenarios have made this a gem at my house!

The modular terrain, the attractive painted miniatures, the "everything in the history of the world and then some" unit choices--it all adds up to pure fun. This is a great gateway game for wargames, too--LOS, attack and defense values, dice rolling. Love this game.

yeah its clunky at times. the combat is weak. but i love this game. just enough going on to keep everyone entertained, while still allowing for some diplomacy and head to head combat.

How can this game not be in this list?

High tension, back stabbing, paranoid, desperate

A buddy introduced me to this and now everytime we hook up, I'm hoping to get in a game of this. I just can't get enough! It plays equally well with 2, 3, or 4 games -- and the playing pieces rock! Spiders, little godzillas, and monsters making "touchdown" symbols -- loads of dice ... what's not to love?
