Similar to a tabletop roleplaying game, except the Overlord is ''supposed'' to defeat the players [[KillerGameMaster at all costs]].

Normally an Ameritrash game will have a theme rather than being an AbstractGame, making such board games reminiscent of NES cartridge art, with CoversAlwaysLie included. CoversAlwaysLie is more common on older Ameritrash board game box art, because more recent board games in this category, sometimes reprints of older games that have been around for a long time but went out of print - will be more in tune with modern aesthetics than you would find on the pre-Photoshop, TrapperKeeper style board game box art.

** It's not ''really'' for kids, though they can play it (from experience, the biggest problem a kid playing this game will have is with the vocabulary, but a lot of adults have trouble with the vocabulary too because it has Arabic words and a little bit of Burton-translation-inspired SesquipedalianLoquaciousness).

* ''TabletopGame/TalesOfTheArabianNights'': A strange adventure game based on the 1001 Arabian Nights. You wander around the Middle East as weird things that happen to your character are read from a book of MUD like instructions, which include such GenderBender things as a sex-change spring. WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids? Makes sense, since the Arabian Nights were not originally for kids either. But this game is for some reason.
