Hey TG, I got a question for you
What are your thoughts on depressing, overwhelming, or grim-dark endings for not so terrible or outright terrible but redeemable characters? I'm talking an absolutely no winning, no good ending, go straight to jail ending.

I used to be fine with it, provided it wasn't overtly spiteful ie the character ends up miserable because it was male and the story was very clearly written by a manhater 
But, lately I've gotten pretty burnt out on good characters getting shat on.
Though, I suppose it would be more apt to say I'm sick of seeing good characters that had their happily ever afters yanked out from under them in reboots made years later.

I fucking hate it when some hack writer decides to undo the development and accomplishments of another writer's characters to drum up artificial drama and interest in the newest installment of the series. It never pays off either and the character always feels twice as hollow afterward.

I like it when the stories seem grim on the surface but carry a measure of hope at a deeper level, one that warms your soul. You don't see many of those, though. I blame britbongs for being so nihilistic.

Bongs have stiff upper lips, they don't expect the rain to never stop, they just expect they might drowned before it stops. Which is the hope you're implying you want.

Now that's a good game. Totally recommend you to give it a shot.

Has anyone had a chance to play in-person since the coofrona outbreak began? I don't often go with mates anyway but our typical gamenight was heading to the pub and picking up where we left off while going through pretzels and pints, but two of the guys I usually go with are scared about this pandemic and some of the pubs I've been to have rules in place disallowing such gatherings.

I played bang! with 6 people just 2 weeks ago, both nights were ruined by spilling of beer all over the cards

I get the appeal of going out and making a night of it, but why not just invite everyone to your house for booze, pretzels and dice games if the pubs and your friends can't facilitate play your usual way?

both my groups are gaming again. We always did it as someone's house anyway
I looked into it just recently via local comic shop. They told me that somebody was doing games on Sundays but he hasn't responded to my email yet. And it looks like my work shift is moving to Sundays anyway. Feels bad.

Shameless repost from /v/. Consider inviting other anons for both short game sessions or creating long sessions with big and autistic tables.
Unity's a piece of shit, so beware lag and slowdowns.

Play really fun board games over a shitty P2P connection with a relay server. All connection problems can and will be solved this time by using different hosts. WANGBLOWS ONLY, WINE DOESN'T WERK WE TRIED.
>How do you play?
Grab card, drag card, read rules, play game.

We're using a TINserver setup for netplay. Please remember to let TINServerClient verify all files and update if friends aren't visible. Disable the firewall and launch as administrator if problems persist.
