I would like not to speak of this... As the person who broke that rule >_>


I was talking about JT in EtE, what are you talking about?

You don't remember Charizard and Alakazam?

I wonder how long it will take for BRO to start advocating semi-anonymous games

Would you explain what a "Semi-Anonymous" game even is?

Is that where you know the player base but not who in particular is who, or that half the cast is known while the other half remain anonymous?
I made a GTKAS. Go shitpost in it if you want. It's very lonely. Or check out Lynch Happy instead. I'm pretty proud of it.

I still am a big fan of semi-anonymous games, in any form. One way I've considered involves everyone knowing the identity of one person. One involves Redemption Island, and people being revealed as they are eliminated.

non anon and anon each have a lot of benefits

non-anon is WAY less fun on a community like this where people know eachother. Skype games like me/bro/jess/bebs/more have played are a way more authentic different experience.

anon is a sort of necessary evil for this community to be able to have games
