Forum games for 2021?

It seems that only :mahjong: is displayed well across a lot of devices, since that one is treated like an emoji.

Other Unicode mahjong tiles don’t seem to render as well on some devices

Any more ideas?

Yes, I had a silly idea recently. Wasn’t sure if I should really post it. :grin:

Please share. Nothing to be afraid of.

I’ll admit I’m not the biggest fan of the Werewolf game series.

A month later, I played Werewolf Game 6 :P

:clap::clap: especially to Escherian Go.

I don’t understand “bounded”?

In that the game is formally finite.

The werewolf games only continue until either the werewolves or innocents win, the hurt / heal games continue until there is a winning fuseki or joseki, and the all-in-one democratic game finishes when the game of communal Go is over.

Games like the guess rank game or community geoguesser don’t have that formal bounding; they continue until the players get bored.

I think that’s a reasonable definition for practical unboundedness.

Of course, everything is bounded by the eventual heat death of the universe.

Is heat death the scientific meta? I thought it was cool death right now.

I really don’t know what’s the most popular theory at the moment.

“Heat death” is meant like the “death of heat”, so it is like a “cool death”, aka the “Big Chill” or “Big Freeze”.

Ah, I thought you meant heat death as in a hot death, by everything collapsing together.

I remember now that you have the term correct.

Might depend on the universe :slight_smile: eg Ultimate fate of the universe - Wikipedia

I think the name is just misleading.

^^

I only did very basic cosmology with Friedmann equations in a GR course, so not really up to date with this stuff.

What’s GR ?

General relativity, I imagine.
