Darn, now I'll have to actually write a new article later down the line? Thanks for calling my subterfuge out before I even use it, Jeremy. Thank you very much ninja

Looks good, but may I make a suggestion? From your site, when you click "Grumpy Gamer" at the top and show the list of articles, the ones with a guest give you no idea of the content. Whereas the non-guest ones give you an inkling of what to expect.

This is sound advice, thank you. We will change the titles tonight.

It's not good that I appear as the poster either. We will check if some modification can be made to the format.

Gamers and Their High Horses: Beginners and Complexity

If I ever recommend Runebound over Mage Knight it's because I like it much more. MK didn't work for me (and I got inundated with recommendations for it when I first got here).

(but I get his point in the article - the bit about giving helpful advice about learning the game rather than suggesting it's too much and they should go for something easier sounds good)

I love Runebound

I like Mage Knight.

I see this behavior more in the general recommendations forums than here in the guild forum.

Yes, I'm sure he just used some well known games examples.

But, Dave, since we are at it, wouldn't you like to write about how Mage Knight is perhaps over-rated? whistle It would make a great grumpy post. (I've never played the game, it may be worth all the praise, I don't know. laugh)

I don't think I could write a whole post about it, not even if I stretched it out to encompass people recommending their favorite game even if it doesn't fit the parameters people are asking about. As if they don't read any words except "recommend a game".

That would be a worthwhile read!

I'm foretelling one about how KD:M is overrated though instead laugh

We are now open for submissions, so if you have grumpy thoughts, channel them into an article, and send it!
