Superficial question of the day!

CSW has a total of 6 posts.
BGG at the time of posting has 1690 (plus this one).

Seems unusual. Perhaps this is because Sekigahara is not a typical wargame?

Still, only 6 threads is rather shocking.

I may be missing something, but when I look, there are 162 comments on CSW.

Maybe because Matt Calkins is more active on BGG than on CSW?

If I did my research correctly, Matt's last post on CSW was Sept 2011 with only two other 2011 posts before that. Matt's last post on BGG was Jan 2012 with numerous posts before that..

So if one wants the designer's opinion on a question, BGG is the place to ask?

Within the realm of color, the shadows often assume responsibility for the awkward shine of yellow.

I'm a euro gamer and when I read the rules and watched videos of Sekigahara, I was hooked!

I think it has a nice crossover appeal for the genre.

I would say it refers to every game, not only Sekigahara (let alone those old and obscure only a handful play :-P).

To answer the OP's question...

It may be that CSM caters more to Grognard centric conflict games (that is my perception) while BGG is catering to all walks of board gaming,


Personally I prefer the format of BGG over that of CSM.

BGG offers one stop shopping for each game, discussions, market info, images, support files, links to expansions...

I find the forums on CSM require too much effort to reap wanted or pertinent information (much like the Yahoo groups Two Hour Wargames uses). I would also say the same of The Miniatures Page.

I rarely visit CSM unless a fellow BGG'er provides a link.
