Renaming Board Game Genres
In my first thread, I was explaining the difference between "Eurogame" and "Ameritrash". I still cling to these terms since I still find they are useful (at least for me) in helping me sort out the games I like from the games I don't. However, there are quite a few people who felt both labels were equally stupid, so here's my proposal: why not use the terms "Story-driven", "Theme-heavy", "Conflict-driven", "Brain-burner", "Deep but conflict-light", "Solitaire", "Co-operative", etc. instead?
They're much more descriptive and less misleading than "Eurogame" and "Ameritrash".
