The Best Ameritrash Board Games


How many times have you been looking for a game based on what you like?

Many of us like the Eurogames, but sometimes it’s okay to prefer something lighter, with more hammer playing, such as an Ameritrash style game.

That’s why we bring you this list of the Best Board Games of the Ameritrash genre, so you can enjoy them in the best possible company.

But first…


    What are the Ameritrash Board Games?

    This term is just a way of categorizing certain games that have a similar dynamic.

    The name of this category comes from the mixture of the words America and Trash.

    The first word is quite obvious and comes from the place of creation of this type of games, which generally, or formerly, used to come from this continent. But perhaps the second word will puzzle you a little.

    Are AmeriTRASH style board games trash?

    Not at all, these games are not ‚Äúbad‚ÄĚ games, but they are called ‚ÄúAmerican Trash‚ÄĚ for the following reasons:

    • Most of them are from the United States.
    • They are thematic, so they include a story and a narrative thread, as well as a setting.
    • The lucky element is very important, so in these cases strategy will not be so relevant.
    • Due to certain exceptions to their rules, sometimes they are more complex games than the Eurogames

    Having explained this, we now dare to leave you with our TOP list of Ameritrash style games:

    Using the map of the camp and its surroundings, you’ll move on, running away from Otis and preparing conditions for your escape. It turns out that the game provides 4 possible ways to save yourself: Running away in a van, in a boat, asking for help at the ranger’s tower, or arriving at a neighboring farm where a trap is set to finish off Otis.
