    Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers were stupid? Were you some kind of jock in high school? (also... the first TMNT movie was pretty dark. pretty far from "dorky".

    They should reprint Queens Gambit. Would sell 5000 to 10,000 copies in a flash.

    so batman game has the worst rulebook and it is still a good game and you tell people to lets just power through the rulebook cause its worth it, but for Hunt for the Ring you basically shit on the game because of the rulebook, nice one Sam

    I couldn't disagree with LOTR Journeys more. There's no theme there Tom, nothing that matches the themes of the books at all.

    Villainous, on the other hand, should've been much higher on your list. There are few games that mix the theme with mechanisms as well as Villainous does.

    I can't believe that sons of anarchy isn't on any of these lists! It's a great game, and it's like $16

    To be fair Tom, how can you tell Zee that D.C. Deckbuilding Game has NO theme because you can play the exact same game with other characters and theme - while putting Dice Masters on your list? You could build any set of characters/story into a Dice Masters set/game. The play is the same.

    Outer Rim I totally agree with replacing Firefly. It hits the same notes and is a better game and has a better IP.

    I actually prefer the hockey deckbuilder to the dc one. I may be in the minority but the hockey theme seems better served by the game.
