    I can't believe you're cheating on us :(




  • I can't believe you're cheating on us :(

    :D:D I'm not really...




  • I'm not 100% sure - it's like Stockholm Syndrome in here :D

    I was reading through one of the first Paint Reveal threads, I can't remember was it live or afterwards, or how I even found it in the first place

    But I do remember bursting out laughing several times while reading it, and I either made a made a mental note to keep an eye out for the next one, or maybe sign-ups were already open for it? Not sure, but it was Paint that brought me here :)




  • Game of Thrones Werewolf in 2019 was my first memory but upon investigation it appears I had been hanging around the SHEEP scene in the summer of 2019, so sometime around then.

    Assuming I've done my sums correctly (which is unlikely) 30% of my posts on here have been in Forum Games and its various offshoots.

    I had a look at my oldest posts in Forum Games

    Didn't even know you could do this :o


    Just checked mine and turns out it was Omackerals All Ireland Landmark Tournament that reeled me in! :pac: how could I have forgotten.

    I wasn't part of it, but I read it afterwards & commented that I thought it was great. So it's his fault I'm sniffing around these parts now :D

    Not only can you look up your posts, but you can look up other users' posts! :)




  • Not only can you look up your posts, but you can look up other users' posts! :)

    I'm not nosey so I never went looking for an option like that ;)

    It's great for making the debate really petty.

  • I discovered this place about a year and a half ago (under a different username). Played a few werewolves, a few paints and a few sheeps. Great bunch of lads, I must get back into posting here again:)




  • I think it was seeing the Simpson's Werewolf game on the 'Latest Posts' page that first made me aware that Werewolf was a thing. It seemed really intriguing so I decided to sign up for the next game, and from there I found out that Werewolf was a Forum Games subforum. I then visited the main forum and found myself a new regular haunt. :)

    I've barely played Werewolf since because I quickly learned that I am absolutely terrible at it; thankfully I've fared somewhat better in SHEEP (though not so much in HEEPS) :D

    Well I saw a codenames game thread in recent posts or something. I owned the game so was intrigued and watched a game or two before joining in.

    Game 1 is just my codenames clue ;)




  • Speaking of which, there must be loads of people on here who never played codenames before. Its a fun game, we should get more on the go. I remember the good old days when there'd be games every day :)

    Just found this actually. An official site for playing the game is now live.

    https://codenames.game/




  • I'm down for some codenames




  • I shall post in the thread sure

    Ah, gotcha. I was thinking I didn't remember you from jayop's first Werewolf ;)




  • I found it on Feb 2018 when Loughc promoted the Back To The Future werewolf in the Christmas forum. I don’t get to play games as often now but still like to pop in.

    I’ve met some great people from here and can’t wait for the next meetup when we can!




  • Any chance that a Sticky could be placed on this thread, as there is a constantly evolving membership in Forum Games, and this could act like a record of who has come and gone and of newer members over time? Just a thought! :)




  • If we get to 100 posts, no probs :D

    A permanent reminder of how badly I mix up words/names :o:D




  • I played in Jayop's first werewolf game and everyone suspected I was a wolf because of my user name!




  • An odd thing happened to me in 2018. I won't go into it in depth. 

    But I suffered a breakdown in motivation. I couldn't find anything to occupy my mind. Nothing made me feel anything. I would spend days literally walking back and forth, totally aimless, just so that I was doing something. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I had no interest in life. There is/was little reward system in my brain. I was thinking how am I going to get through the rest of my life when there's nothing to do? I thought about suicide, not 100% seriously, but more seriously than ever before. I even wrote out a suicide note. It seems silly thinking of it now.

    One day I came online and found forum games somehow and I took an interest. I think it was the Catchphrase thread. Gradually other interests started to come back too, like music and films and books and such. Forum games were what sparked my recovery. I don't post as much now and don't need to as I have more going on in my life and I'm sort of half-quitting boards.ie 

    Thanks to everyone who runs the games and everyone who makes this a fun corner of the internet.
