If we're lucky then 2010 will get its own page maybe?



Seems you can make your own listing.

The top box
Misc > Create > Add Board Game

Also you can add version info on any game.

Example of versions:
The image does not go to another game page, just a larger view of the image.

I have the original purple box.

Below all that you can make links to other related games.

I have a Squad Leader computer game from years past. It was pretty terrible. I'm betting the board game is much better though.

Yeah it is.
Avalon Hill had a bad track record of converting games to computer.

In the 90's I called them to do an exact conversion of SL to a computer game. They said they had some guys on it. But it was just a mess.

I contacted Multiman Publishing that does ASL but they are technophobic and don't play computer games. I even sent the owner Curt Schilling an email which he never responded to.

So I tried.

Yeah him. He is a big ASL fan.
He also owns a computer game company making an MMO.

He is also a WOW fan.

They just moved to RhodeIsland for some reason. Oh right they paid him 75 million.


He is the financial backer of Multiman which makes ASL now.
Multiman has the license from Hasbro.

That's really interesting to learn that some big sports figure is into those kinds of things.

So... you say you want to give Brikwars a nice 10 point rating, but you can't figure out which button to click. I feel your pain. That site is a mess.


6 First set up an account
7 Go to the Brikwars page
8 Go to the bottom of the page ( yeah not the top near the rating as you would expect)
9 User Information > Add a copy to your collection (click that)
10 You will see " Rating N/A" (click on the N/A, that was intuitive right?)
11 Enter your rating in the box

I figured that out by accident, good thing I'm 6 feet tall.

If the game gets rated 30 times it will enter the overall rankings and will show up on other lists of ranked games. Just 2 more to go.

The vote doesn't show up right away.

Good news everyone! BrikWars now has enough ratings to be counted in the BGG game rankings. We're currently in 1,504th place out of 7,500 wargames, and 4,122nd place out of 54,100 tabletop games overall.
