Just missing for me was Monsterpocalypse, Runewars, King of Tokyo, Dawn of the Zeds, and Earth Reborn in no particular order.

I was surprised by some of the choices. Namely War of the Ring (First Edition). I didn't figure you for a fellow Lord of the Rings fan.

Gah! Just last week I was searching for a great ameritrash game and settled. I might have to place another game order after watching this.

BTW Motorhead!

You know why the Terminators don't come back in time and try to kill humanity?




Because of this man!

Lemmy is so manly, he can get a woman pregnant just by shaking her hand.

Lemmy is so awesome, somebody asked him, "Didn't you design Empire of the Sun?"

By the way, my favorite part of the video is watching Greg's facial expressions when I'm doing my thing.

Lemmy is so awesome, when someone asked him "how many push ups can you do?" He said, "all of them!"

His reactions were priceless. He usually plays it straight, but I think he cracked a bit.

They understood when I told them I'm a Sixers fan. Then they took pity on me.

Honorable Mentions: Block Mania, Minion Hunter, Dungeon!

Top 5 Ameritrash
5. Nexus Ops
4. Risk 2210
3. Heroscape
2. Talisman
1. TITAN

Also, I thought the following geeklist was what coined the term 'Ameritrash'. I think it was a fan and not euro-gamers. I could be wrong though.

No, this article pre-dates Robert's Geeklist by 6 years:
http://www.thegamesjournal.com/articles/FutureofAH.shtml

As does this one:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.games.board/1qRv...

Robert's was the first Geeklist to mention it, and it is awesome (and you could tell it was influential to me).

Nice video! But I think Nexus Ops is missing one thing for being the epitome of Ameritrash: The coffin box!

The FFG big box games are the perfect examples of Ameritrash to me. Just look at games like TI3, Descent (1st edition), Starcraft, Runewars, Horus Heresy... These boxes a the promise of amertrashy awesomeness at its best

It's a really a shame that FFG's coffin boxes have vanished (with the exception of TI3).
