I’ve not weighed in before, as I can’t really be impartial here. I’ve not gotten into any Stonemeier games before, and I know and have been on a first name basis with a few different Gaming Goat owners. Also as a big supporter of FLGS in general, I am already inclined to lean towards TGG regardless.
But all that said I have tried to read this fairly. And having read a significant portion of that exchange, I have to say screw SM games and their sycophants on BGG. Like I get wanting to back your favorite publisher or whatever, but their supporters remind me of the EGS partisans here. I got no time for that kind of console wars bullshit.
