The other day, I started a topic in the 1830 forum. Before I did, I searched the forum to make sure no one else had asked the same question. Imagine my embarrassment when I discovered I was the third to ask that question in a fortnight.

It seems that every popular game's forum has some question or another that's asked again and again, or some discussion that's been rehashed a dozen times. This list is dedicated to those games and their Frequently Started Topics.

I am not a lawyer, but somehow I am a legal expert, and on this case specifically despite having no factual information with which to argue from, so let me explain how everything is going to turn out.

The Hallifax Hammer is totally overrated, even if the designer admits there's a problem.

Why is the spider so weak compared to all the other pieces?

I have a proposal for a new spider rule that makes the spider better!

- This game is way to long and complete chaos.

- This game is playable in a few hours and completely controlable.

I have a new idea for a combat system that puts away with the game's combat cards.

Oh, and I also have an idea for a simpler game that puts away with the order system.

* The manufacturer is ripping us off because of the component quality, so don't buy this game. (Pick your favorite game component to complain about)

* The game play is awesome, so go buy this game. (Non-Star Trek fans need not read this thread)
