So I'm a fan of both games, but do like Scythe better.

I saw this thread. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1969431/gloomhaven-losi...

And decided to post the same thing over here since I know the gloomhaven community is very good at promoting the game.



Following the same flavor as the original post:::

Here's the link, it's the third matchup:

Best matchup of this round. I love both. Already gave my vote to Scythe. I hope it can pull it off, but I realize Scythe is the underdog here.

I appreciate the post, though I really don't want to encourage or promote this type of competition between games. I'm happy Scythe exists, and I'm happy that a lot of people have found joy in Gloomhaven as well. In fact, back when Gloomhaven's first Kickstarter was delayed and Isaac had little to sell at his Gen Con booth, we came to a mutually beneficial agreement for him to sell Scythe there so neither of us would suffer a loss at Gen Con. I'd rather the two games and their fans get along than encouraging people to take sides.

It’s more about the threat of battle.

I do apologize if my post seemed to indicate a down with gloomhaven, and I can see how that would be. I was not aware of the "March Madness" for board games until I saw a post in it on the Gloomhaven forum where it was against a different game that I had not played.

I figured if I had not heard about it that others also had not heard about it. Some of us (me) only focus in on certain games on BGG so we miss major announcements not related directly to the games we follow.

No worries, Bradley! You did absolutely nothing wrong, and I appreciate your enthusiasm. I just wanted to prevent the inevitable head-butting that can happen between two passionate fan groups that don't necessarily overlap.

My two cents...in my games room I have two games beside the door. They are what i would grab in case of a fire...one is Scythe the other is Gloom of Kilforth!

I am the creator of the Gloomhaven thread. Just so everyone is clear, Geek Madness is very tongue-in-cheek, so it tends to be over the top with some of the posturing. Even though I said "Gloomhaven is losing to Scythe of all things", I don't hate Scythe. Far from it, I rather like the game and would vote for it in many matchups. I just happen to like Gloomhaven better. I'm glad someone similarly mobilized the Scythe community. Both are passionate fanbases, it will be a good contest.

My Scythe vote is in along with some other great games. Kinda cool - would love to see scythe in the final 4

Too bad my gaming groups second favorite game is already out - Viticulture

Power grid, Peurto Rico, Ticket to Ride, carcasonne is still in the running

Spoiler alert - Gloomhaven will win.

The gloss/hype hasn’t quite worn off the game yet.

Gloomhaven won round 2 by 1 vote - it could become closer

Why? It’s irrevelant to either game and Jamey kinda politely asked those in this thread to drop it.

Jamey did a scenario for GH for f’s sake!

Why? Because it's the Geekmadness.
And following this logic, I demand an answer from you meeple

While I do support Jamey saying what he thinks, I disagree with him and I'll gladly pick team Scythe over Gloomhaven (in the spirit of Geekmadness, of course)

I own both. Love them both. I love both themes. But both are very, very different games. Its like comparing and orange to a carrot. The only likeness is you eat both.
