I would also like to invite anyone including the post'er to join my MeetUp:
http://www.meetup.com/Mile-High-Strategists-II-Games-Meetup/

We play a lot of Ameritrash / Big-box-O'Toys games (I've actually never heard the term "Amerithrash"...maybe it's a new one and I'm just out of the loop)

Levi, I scanned through your collection and, with only a single exception (Risk Legacy), I didn't see a single Ameritrash game in your collection.

Here's my understanding of "Ameritrash" games: multi-player cut-throat style war/politics/economics strategy games that would include:

Twilight Imperium 3rdEd
Conquest of the Empire (EG & MB)
Shogun (Samurai Swords, Ikusa) (MB & WotC)
Axis & Allies (tBG , all)
Fortress America
Napoleon in Europe (EG)
...maybe you could throw in some tactical miniatures games...idk.

Ameritrash games generally involve the "direct-to-dice" game mechanic, area control (vs PtP or hexes) and resource management. Runewars and Forbidden Stars would likely fit this definition as well.

Anyway, hope to game with you some time, but it doesn't look like we have any game interests in common.
