Many of you have alreay seen the Similar Games Face Off geeklist.
Response has been more than I ever hoped, but now I would like to take it to the next level and request assitance from the BGG community to build a database of comparisons of similar games.
I feel like we have a solid start, but there has been a call for more Face Offs.
If anyone reading this is familiar with any 2 of these following games, or can think of another pair they would like to compare, please feel free to add them to the GL or PM me and I will add them for you, based on your notes.
Here is a list of requests made thus far:
Brass vs Age of Industry
7 Wonders vs Among the Stars
Agricola vs Caverna: The Cave Farmers
Space Cadets vs. Space Alert
Eclipse vs. Twilight Imperium Done!
Dungeon Lords vs. Dungeon Petz
7 Wonders vs. Fairy Tale vs. Lost Legend
Amun Re vs. Vegas Showdown
Any number of variation on the Commands and Colors series
Battlestar Galactica vs. Shadows of Camelot
Brass vs. Age of Industry
Caverna vs. Agricola
Through the Ages vs. Nations Requested multiple times!
Alien Frontiers vs. Kingsburg
1812: The Invasion of Canada vs. 1775: Rebellion
Brass vs. Power Grid
Twilight Struggle vs. Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001-?
Stone Age vs. Lords of Waterdeep

1960: The Making of the President vs. Campaign Manager 2008
Dominion (The Daddy) vs. Trains (The Young Pretender) or any other DBG.
Fury of Dracula vs. Letters from Whitechapel
Ninjato vs Stone Age.
Trains is a better game, but Dominion has more variety due to expansions.
Space Cadets and Space Alert really only share the theme and the real time element. They play totally different.
