Here is a list of the current games/face-offs to help you easily find games you’re looking for or see if certain games already exist. Please keep in mind as you search that, while a game is only listed once, it may plausibly fall under more than one category—so be sure to check multiple sections if that’s the case. I will add/remove from this topic as it is needed. I'll do a clean up at the first and end of each month so to make sure everything is in order.
Current Categories: Mafia, Counting, Above Poster, Word/Letter, Listing, Rating, Question/Answer, Guessing, Creative, Competitive, RPGs, Miscellaneous Games, and Face-Offs
A specific type of RPGs involving players who take on the role of either being the Mafia or being one of several townspeople, with the Mafia being able to eliminate one townsperson per day. The objective of the game is for the townspeople to correctly pinpoint as to who the Mafia is; if the Mafia succeeds in eliminating all the townspeople without getting caught, the Mafia wins. Because of the popularity of this type of game, only three Mafias are allowed to be active at one time.
A specific type of continuous and competitive game involving the battle of two groups. Counting Games usually start at a mid-point (ie. 500), with each group posting for the number to reach their group's aim (for example, Group A would want to get the number to 1000, so each post from a member of Group A will add 1 to the current count; on the other hand, Group B would want to get the number to 0, so each post from a member of Group B will subtract 1 from the current count). Because of the popularity of this type of game, only three Counting Games are allowed to be active at one time.
Technically speaking, these are games that involve the player interacting with the player who posted before him/her. With that definition, though, almost every game can be said to belong to this category, so for the purposes of this index, "Above Poster" games will refer to games of that nature, but do not fall under any of the other categories in this index.
From the name itself, these are games that involved the players continuing a list started by the game's owner. Despite the titles of some of these games having numerical values, most games under this category have a list that is understood to be limitless (only really ending when the game is closed), though there are some exceptions.
A type of game which involves a player giving his/her opinion of anything provided by or a characteristic of the player who posted before him/her, with this opinion being given or accompanied by a rating. Most rating games follow a rating scale of 0-10, with 0 being the lowest rating given and 10 being the highest.
As what the name suggests, these games involve a player asking a question to another player, with the usual setup being a player answering the question of the player before him/her and the player asking another question to the player who will post after him/her. Q&A games are distinct from Guessing games in that there are no right or wrong answers, but only merely answers.
These are games wherein the player has to guess the correct answer from the questions given by either the above poster or the game's owner. For games like these, though, the latter is preferred in order to avoid the game from being cluttered, though there are some exceptions. Guessing games are distinct from Q&A games in that there is actually a right answer in these games.
As what the name suggests, these kinds of games partake to the players' capacity to think creatively. Creative games usually go for the inventiveness and originality of the player instead of their spontaneity.
These are games that involve contests and/or competitions of some sort, with the aim of the game being to find a victor among a pool of contestants. Though most of the games in this category can also be placed under other categories of this index, they are placed here because the competitive aspect of the game is what drives it.
Standing for "Role-Playing Games", these obviously refer to games where each player is designated a role. An important characteristic of RPGs in the Games section (as opposed to RPGs in the section of the same name) is that the role-playing element of the game, while important, is very minimal. Games under this category are only grouped as such because of the presence of the element, but this element is not the dominant one of the game.
Of course, categories are limiting, and it is virtually impossible to create categories for all of the games of this forum. This category, then, is for all the games that do not fit in any of the categories listed above. Should enough games of a similar nature appear in this category, a new category may be created just for them.
[spoiler="Definition"]Face-Offs are a specific sub-genre of Competitive games, with the means of getting a victor being achieved through different voting styles being employed by its players, rightfully called its "voters". Because of the specificity of such a genre, there is a

Quit. For real this time lol. Moved to Pokebeach as Tyaniking a long time ago. The only thing keeping me here was the games corner and the really fun RPGs, but those are out, so I started going to the TCG section, but that's pretty much dead. I'm trying to get into the video games, but most of my time is devoted to the TCG, so IDK how it's gonna go. If I get back into the games, I'll probably come back. Besides, most of the other TCG crew moved to Pokebeach as well. Any of my groups or games may be closed or they may be remade by anyone who wants to. I give full permission. I'm sorry I have to leave, but that's just life.
I'm working on a new way to have the games organized on here. I was supposed to start on it last week, but I ran into a few issues I had to deal with. I should be able to start on it by tonight, or tomorrow night.
