Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

You know like for instance

POKEMON!
Pokemon_Battle_by_mbcoolness.jpg


Everyone likes Pokemon! Except for soulless sons of bitches that don't.

If you want to head down the bottomless pit of madness that is competitive Pokemon, then here are some links to get you started. If you're willing to sacrifice playing against people that aren't assholes in exchange for not sinking hours upon hours into breeding and training, then try out Shoddy Battle.

But that's not the only game we can talk about! There is also

Yu-Gi-Oh!
Joey_Team_Yugioh_by_Jilbao85.jpg


Unlike Pokemon, Yugioh is a much more mature and complex game, whic--

YVD Is a program that'll let you play online. If you don't know the rules, here's the rulebook. This is a good site for looking up cards and official rulings. Unless you're a little bitch, you play Advanced Format, which means that you play with the ban list enforced, which can be found here, as well as when you first open up YVD.

Feel free to also talk about any other hobby that's symptomatic of Asperger's Syndrome.

    Yu-Gi-Oh is a terribly unbalanced card game. I've played a ton of card games at a competitive level, Magic, Pokemon, Duel Masters, and Yu-Gi-Oh, just to name the ones I've put most of my effort/cash into, and Yu-Gi-Oh was by far the least balanced.

    Duel Masters is a great game, no lie. Easily my favorite card game. I made it all the way to Nationals one year, too. I wish Wizards of the Coast wouldn't have discontinued it.

    Never have I seen a game where one type of deck can single-handedly control the competitive environment. From Yata-Lock to DAD to Gladiators to even earlier stuff like Jinzo-lock, there's always a deck which controls the metagame and is the "best deck". Sure, there are other decks which can be competitive, I had a lot of success with a Plant deck, but usually there is one deck to beat. In most other games there are a multitude of decks which have nearly equal power. Not saying that there haven't been unbalanced environments in games like Magic and Duel Masters (Affinity and Bombazar decks, respectively, for example), but on the whole they are naturally more balanced. Yu-Gi-Oh fixes a lot of it's problems with card banning, something other games have avoided in their standard play environments.

    That's not really true.

    And infinite combos are either

    A. Impractically difficult to set up
    B. Banned shortly after they're discovered.

    Since I haven't played in the last three years I can't talk about the metagame, so I'll have to take your word on that.

    Also, I dunno about other card games, but Magic only doesn't have to maintain a banlist because every few months they ban everything. In Legacy play or whatever they call it where all sets are legal, they have a very extensive banlist.

    yu gi oh is really fun when you don't play with dumb faggots

    sorry you all hate fun

    it's actually pretty balanced. there is ALWAYS a way to disrupt a combo. there are hardly any instant wins, and what little there are, you have to build an entire deck around and even then it is pretty easy to disrupt


    the game is nothing at all like the show

    type 2 has has the 4 most recent sets at any given time(generally) they have actually been changing up the way sets work recently
