TOPIC: The Big F:AT Hall Of Legends

The Big F:AT Hall Of Legends 16 Oct 2015 20:05 #212618

There have been attempts at our own Hall of Fame in the past. Ken B had a couple articles that were quite good. This is all about the numbers though. Because this way at least we'll have one. Baby steps.

So what are your top twenty nominations for the Fort's Hall Of Legends? The higher you place a board/card/minis game the more points it will be worth towards an overall tally. The top point earners will be inducted.

1. 20 points
2. 19 points
3. 18 points
4. 17 points
5. 16 points
6. 15 points
7. 14 points
8. 13 points
9. 12 points
10. 11 points
11. 10 points
12. 9 points
13. 8 points
14. 7 points
15. 6 points
16. 5 points
17. 4 points
18. 3 points
19. 2 points
20. 1 point

I'll tally with an article when there is a worthwhile number of posts. And remember, this is for posterity so be honest.

Now I have to start thinking of my own list. :\

I'd certainly not be against that, but my intention is just to establish a list. Hard to plan beyond that, but at least a single article for the results seems easy. The problem with a series of articles is most of us won't have played all the games so it would have to be multiple people writing different articles.

If Cosmic Encounter isn't #1, the list is suspect and the voting mechanics are broken.

At first I figured this would just be a list of the games I liked most... but didn't end up being that. Things like Napoleon's Triumph, Warmachine, and some Euros just don't fit into to what I think this site is about. That same thinking changes the ranking order and such as well.

1. Blood Bowl
2. Twilight Imperium III
3. Dune
4. DungeonQuest
5. Tigris and Euphrates
6. Spartacus
7. Chaos in the Old World
8. Merchants and Marauders
9. Arkham Horror
10. Space Hulk
11. Luchador!
12. Star Wars: X-Wing
13. Runewars
14. Android: Netrunner
15. Magic: The Gathering
16. Fury of Dracula
17. Wiz-War
18. Twilight Struggle
19. Tales of Arabian Nights
20. Battle Star Galactica

Too new to me but seems to be great: Theseus: Dark Orbit

Fuck Cosmic Encounter.

I'll just choose what I think is appropriate combined with what I like.

1/ Nexus Ops
2/ Chaos in the Old World
3/ Twilight Imperium 3 (even though I don't play it anymore it deserves to be there)
4/ Runewars
5/ Space Hulk
6/ Earth Reborn
7/ Tide of Iron (more AT than wargame in my mind - but certainly both)
8/ Survive
9/ Fireball Island
10/ Wiz-War
11/ Merchants and Marauders
12/ Risk (count this as any iteration... it deserves a place)
13/ Cutthroat Caverns
14/ X-Wing
15/ Arkham Horror
16/ Crokinole
17/ Pitchcar
18/ Catacombs
19/ Imperial Assault
20/ Mage Knight

Boardgames suck.

01. Battlestar Galactica
02. Talisman
03. Cave Evil
04. DungeonQuest
05. Chaos Marauders
06. Cosmic Encounter
07. The Fury of Dracula (GW)
08. Space Hulk
09. Civilization/AdvCiv
10. Spartacus
11. Dune
12. Clash of Cultures
13. The Gothic Game
14. StarCraft
15. Warrior Knights
16. Battleball
17. Condottiere
18. Block Mania
19. ScrumBrawl
20. Twilight Imperium 2E


Not an easy list to make. Some of those games I prefer with expansion material, some have multiple differing editions, and I had to leave off a bunch of stuff I would have liked to put up there. I decided to make a list of proper board games, otherwise it would have been 20 short 20-minute games I play the hell out of.

Honorable mentions for Coup, the One Night series, Intrigue, and a bunch of trick taking games.

1. Heroscape
2. Space Hulk
3. Battlestar Galactica
4. Survive: Escape from Atlantis
5. Cyclades
6. Star Trek: Attack Wing
7. X-Wing
8. Talisman
9. Cosmic Encounter
10. Ascending Empires
11. Spartacus
12. Merchants and Marauders
13. Runebound
14. Eclipse
15. Red November
16. Mission Command: Sea
17. War of the Ring
18. Epic Duels
19. Ravenloft (DDAS, really)
20. Last Night on Earth

As an aside, I think putting a numerical value on 20 games is really hard, especially in order. That's fucking tough.

I find it insane that Heroscape isn't in everyone's top 10, let alone 20

I feel the same way about Talisman.
But ask me again in 6 months and I'd probably have a different ordering, if not some different games in that list.

Keep the lists coming. We can do some cool shit in terms of analysis once we get a few more lists.
