Very informative video. Love the wrestling references! What's everyone's favorite type(s) of games? I think for me, I've been playing more euros and hybrid games, but I'm not beneath playing party games (or any game for that matter lol)

I don't really have a favourite these days. But i do like wargames more than most people in the hobby

Good descriptions. I wondered what the more distinct definition was between Euro and Ameritrash. During the first part my thought was, "Well, I wonder where Scythe fits...surely more Euro." I like the Transatlantic designation which I am guessing he made up? Still, great term. I will start using it and see what happens ;)

On this note, I wonder, with board games growing ever more popular, if we'll begin to see different styles of games identified with other regions. East Asian games, for example. I know Japanese games are kind of a thing, but to my knowledge, the term isn't applied quite as widely as "Euro" and "Ameritrash" are.
Or maybe the "American" and "Euro" styles are simply two ends of a linear spectrum, and there isn't room for many other terms as broad as those.
its possible. But yeah, Euro vs American is very much a spectrum on the "theme, production and conflict" levels. So while a clumsy and awkward tool, it makes some sense. That said, we could see entirely different styles of games pop up in the future. Who knows?
Translatlantic is defintely something i just pulled out of my hat while recording. Because of the transatlantic accent that used to be on radio and TV a lot.
Very nice. Sometimes those rabbits take off...
