Re: [TheBBG] What is Ameritrash

These two links will shed some light:


The short answer is:

  Ameritrash is "a catchphrase for 'American style boardgames.' In general, this means games that emphasize a highly developed theme, characters, heroes, or factions with individually defined abilities, player to player conflict, and usually feature a moderate to high level of luck."

I've heard people referring to Ameritrash (as opposed to Europian style) games, but I honestly have no idea what this means? It sounds somewhat demeaning, but it doesn't seem to be used that way in context, and I've heard games decribed as Ameritrash to be greatly praised.
 
Can anyone shed some light?
