Are there any other Beer & Pretzel PnP games along the lines of Paranoia? has been closed twice now, but RPG designed for irregular players/gaming? is still open. Can someone explain to me what the difference is?


No one reads every question, so just because one question gets closed for cause and another doesn't does not mean the other question is a good question.

That other question is slightly better in that it is not specifically asking for a bunch of answers, it's asking for one, although it is indeed not giving much in the way of criteria to select a best one, so it could stand some guidance too.

You might consider giving them guidance, rather than coming here to narc them out to make someone else do it.

    \$\begingroup\$ "If your question is pulling a list and not a "best," it's a bad question." Beyond that specific meta question, it is well understood that lists are OT. \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk Sep 3 '11 at 2:19

  • \$\begingroup\$ Isn't system-recommendation inherently going to lead to many answers without one definitive "correct" answer? It's perhaps worth noting that on gaming.stackexchange, game recommendations are closed as not constructive. I can see the value of the questions, though. \$\endgroup\$ – Joe Dovahkiin Sep 3 '11 at 21:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ @JonathanDrain yes, and gaming.SE's stance is explicitly taken into account in the guidance we linked when we hashed over this in the first place - meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1070/… \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk Sep 3 '11 at 21:22
