This pretty much raps up all the current best treads. If you think I missed something let me know, but I would be surprised. At this point the OP represents the best and brightest musing about our beloved game - other than the USR. if you have hours to kill try reading through all this. It may not get you the Gencon trophy but it won't hurt your chances.

Re: UPDATED: Best Thread Library - Theory, Strategy, Meta, e

I think a bit of cleaning may be in order here. Some of these threads are redundant or not helpful. This is a great resource, but there are definitely some threads in there that I would not consider "best threads". There are also a bunch that say the same thing. In those cases it is probably best to leave out the more poorly organized ones. (Example: A bunch of threads basically talk about IGPV, but really only UPC's thread is needed.)

Re: UPDATED: Best Thread Library - Theory, Strategy, Meta, e

I hear what you are saying. For example there are a few Art of War heroscape threads. This is just a collection of threads where someone took the time to try to say something meaningful.

Sure, I could boil it down, but then it would only be UPC, Jexik, and a few other Authors.

I think having different opinions and highlighting people who make an effort is worth something, even if some of what they say may be incorrect. After reading all of them, I don't remember thinking - "Wow that is totally wrong!". I know there is lots of repeatition, but that is to be expected.

I think in a place where a thread saying someone Spoted a heroscape figure on TV can get 20 replies and a thread comparing a figure to a politian can get over 60, It is okay to highlight any thread that tries to improve the quality of this game. Many of the threads I highlight only get single digit responses. A few pages of writing on Heroscape is nothing compared to libraries of books written on Chess, Bridge or anyother simple but deep game. This is a tribute to all those that seek to raise Heroscape up, even if their attempt is flawed, they still deserve praise, they deserve a place in my Library.

That Said, I think some re-organization is of value.

Re: UPDATED: Best Thread Library - Theory, Strategy, Meta, e

I know you said you were done, and I know I just complained about there being too much stuff in here, but I have 2 more threads that I think are worth adding. lonewolf's GenCon Btattle Report threads are amazing and outclass any other battle report threads I've seen. They focus much more on the why than the what, and that kind of look into a top player's mind is great.

Re: Best Thread Library - Theory, Strategy, Meta, etc.

It has been a while - years in fact, but I have done some pruning, re-organizing and adding to the Opening post.

All said and done there are 901 pages and 476,734 words written within these articles (when you include the USR as well). That is a crazy amount of writing done on Heroscape units and strategy. For such a simple game there is a depth of complexity which can be seen here. Having read all these posts, I can say it has enhanced not only my Heroscape skill, but skill at other games and activities.

Perhaps one day my son, will find this site and this page and write his own strategy, one I never thought of. A father can hope.
