Trashdome - Talisman VS Runebound

WELCOME TO TRASHDOME!

This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.

Although you should be familiar with both games, there is no rule that says you have to have played both of them. The only rule in Trashdome is this;

Two games enter! One game leaves!

Re:Trashdome - Talisman VS Runebound

The hell? I could've sworn I voted on this thing day one.

Fuckin' A.


Belated, meaningless vote for Runebound. I've come to appreciate Talisman's simple charms while playing with my son, but it don't hold nary a candle to the awesomeness of Runebound.

Talisman I'd play if I was looking to kill some time, or laugh it up with my son. If looking for a hot-damned REAL game, it's going to be Runebound.

And I say that as one who still only owns the base game, and is still pretty damned happy with it. The movement system is awesome and handles the vagaries of weather and terrain well. The combat is longer but also more detailed than "roll a number, hope it's higher." You've got weapons and armor that truly do all kinds of crazy shit other than "+1 Craft". You've got allies who have tons of great powers and actually fight alongside you, giving you the feel of a true adventuring party battling the odds. You've got monsters of all kinds, with various powers thanks to lots more room to detail them on the cards.

You even have a few "fetch and deliver" style quests to spice things up. Not to mention events that change the board in subtle ways and add even more flavor.


Dammit. This shouldn't have even been close. Talisman is good mindless fun, but Runebound is the real deal in terms of heavier gaming action. When did the Fort members get sandy vaginas and insist on shorter, and simpler? FOR SHAME, PEOPLE! FOR DAMNED SHAME!!!
I understand and appreciate your contributions

Talisman put up a good fight, but ultimately the Runebound fans rallied together and took it down. Its so much nicer when the better game actually wins these things.

Hold on here! The ballot box was stuffed by sock puppets named after muppets!

So the real vote is more like 18 to 20, with Talisman the winner!

Cheating fuckers broke a deal, need to face the wheel!

I am as outraged by this turn of events as you are, but unfortunately the votes have already been tallied and recorded. Rest assured that I will begin an immediate investigation to determine who is responsible for this and punish them accordingly. Although honestly we may never know.

Re:Trashdome - Talisman VS Runebound

Runebound deserves to win just because of that – eight muppets can't be wrong!

As the puppet don't actually have accounts I think we can work out who the master is.

I'm outraged that Bert and Ernie's votes were not counted. Were they excluded because of their lifestyle?

The investigation is ongoing. It would be premature to name any suspects at this point.
