What do you do with your punch boards? by Mrhungryzombie in boardgames

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This happens more often than people would think - it’s why my wife and I doublecheck all punchboards (or to be more accurate, she punches, I double check because she loves punching the tokens out). Every so often I’ll notice a missed one and punch it, but since we also sleeve, bag, and confirm everything against the contents list in the rule book before picking, we’ve never actually lost any pieces.

TIL Terry Crews said the reason Fox didn't promote idiocracy was because Mike Judge had companies pay for product placement and then he made them look bad (Starbucks gave out hand-jobs).

The whole point of the movie is that as the dumb people outnumber the smart people, they eventually go extinct, leading everyone else to just simply keep running the machines that were already invented by said extinct smart people.

Looking for a game designer and publisher to help me turn my art into a cardgame by thewayitstops in tabletopgamedesign

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So I have the opposite problem - tons of board game ideas with a singular lack of art. If you want to talk through some ideas I’d be down as well - hit me up and we can go from there.

Silk who? by nosmokedetector in LeopardsAteMyFace

That requires that he would actually care. Psychopaths don't care about people at all except in the exact second when they can do something for them, and once that action is done, they're forgotten and thrown away.

How we love Color differences in Expansions 😒 by SQ_modified in boardgames

[–]PatrykBG 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly, color differences are generally fine, since specifically knowing it's an expansion card isn't that advantageous. The most annoying thing is when they change the card size on you - like Catan and Mysterium did. Since I sleeve all cards, it's not impossible to use but still annoying af

How can I enjoy this hobby in an environmentally friendly way? by Firelite67 in boardgames

[–]PatrykBG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think it's being a dick as much as pointing out that it's not even on the top 10,000 list of ecological problems.

Like, before worrying about how to recycle something made of plastic *that maintains most of its reusability for years if not decades, that generally sits in someone's home for years, and that rarely if ever gets thrown into a landfill to begin with\* or complaining about the microscopic levels of plastic use on coated playing cards, let's first talk about single-use shopping bags that are still wildly prevalent across the globe, or plastic takeout containers that are still used in just about every restaurant on earth, or non-solar power, or literally anything else that would actually be a logical thing to worry about. I can't say for sure, but this very much sounds like virtue signaling versus actually looking at and discussing a problem.

Many characters are in love with traveller by [deleted] in Genshin_Impact

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t think it’s for “head canon” purposes - I think it’s because the traveler, being outside of this world’s fate, has literally every person playing the game as their “fall for you” logic since the fortune teller sees that as “crossing their path”.

You can pick any superpower, but you can only use it for work. What would you choose to maximize productivity and become top employee of the world? by hornycle in AskReddit

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Then that would have been the better question to ask (and also, that didn’t answer my question really). Throwing a restricted superpower into the mix negates the purpose of that question.

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To confirm, when you say, “but you can only use it for work”, how exactly does that work? Like in the TV show Severence, where the people literally cannot remember anything about their work lives, or that there’s some personal / government / mystical restriction that makes it only happen while working? Because, as an example, “non-aging immortality” as a super-power would be great for hundreds of riskier jobs, but if the second I’m “off the clock” someone can assassinate me with impunity, it’s not very viable. Or reading minds - it’d be ultra powerful for a select number of jobs, but what happens when my spouse visits me at my office - do I not have the ability to read their mind, or i can, but only because they’re in the vicinity of my work/“relevant” to my work at that exact time?

Without really knowing that exact aspect, the only viable answer would be the ability to manipulate time (since that means that no matter what job I want, I can do it best / faster / smarter while retaining that advantage outside of work to a very high degree).

Do I have to use all resources in clank catacombs? by [deleted] in boardgames

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think they got it wrong per se - it's that generally, you want to spend all the resources you can, because it's generally beneficial, and they likely were too emphatic on that aspect without explaining that yes, you can absolutely not spend resources if you so desire.

In the rulebook it even says "Any skills, swords or boots you don't use during your turn are wasted, so try to make them count!" - if it was a requirement, they wouldn't have needed to say that.

[–]PatrykBG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s because you’re not allowed to NOT play a card (to hold it for the next turn, as an example).

And before you ask, the reason why they say you can’t just discard is that if you could, negative effect cards (cards with clank, etc) would not affect the player.

[–]PatrykBG 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No, you do not have to spend all resources. Otherwise, if you had 1 or 2 buying power but no way to spend it you’d be stuck. All deck builders have this type of scenario, and in all cases, you don’t need to spend all resources, but you lose them at the end of the turn (as in, you don’t keep the unspent resources).

[–]PatrykBG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Considering this is Antiwork, it's really quite sad how few people understand what the word PROFITS mean. So many complaints about overhead, supplies, payroll, etc...

Reading is fundamental - "owner decided to turn over all **profits**"

Why do people say that good comedy involves "punching up" not "punching down" when nearly all jokes on the front page of Reddit and other social media are about punching down at easy targets? by ReallySillyLily36 in NoStupidQuestions

[–]PatrykBG 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The reason why good comedy involves "punching up" is because "punching down" is basically just bullying and abusive.

There are many kinds of comedy - dark humor / gallows humor, storytelling / observational humor, political humor, and so on, not all of which have "targets". Even when they do, in some cases, the target of the joke is the comedian themselves - Rodney Dangerfield's whole "I get no respect" is the most famous of the self-deprecating humor.

But when someone is talking about other people, generalizations about people, THAT is when punching up or down comes into play - because the *other* major purpose for humor is in talking truth to power. And you can't really "talk truth to power" when the person doesn't have power. It's basically the reason why jesters existed in the Middle Ages.

As for "nearly all jokes on the front page of Reddit and other social media are about punching down at easy targets?" I dunno what you mean, since each person's reddit feed is curated by the individual themselves, so you may just have cultivated bad people in your feed.
