Happy Saturday, everyone, welcome to your well-earned Metatalktail! This week, I'm thinking ... Let's say we get to create a Mefi version of the Olympics. What games of skill, grace, and virtuosity should we compete in? Something like this? Or this? Or? [more inside]
Trying to run with a regular April Fools gag feels super weird this year, so...let's just have an indoor scavenger hunt! Can you find THE ROUNDEST THING in your home? Find a thing that needs finding, post a picture and/or description of it in the thread, suggest something else for folks to look for! [more inside]
I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game was just released and it's available on the Nintendo Switch. It seems like everyone is playing these days. Let's talk about our islands/towns. What fruit did you end up getting? There are five possibilities (not counting coconuts): apples, cherries, peaches, pears, and oranges. If you're up for it, let's share our Nintendo Switch Friend codes so we can visit each other's islands/towns. This is a super chill game and it makes me happy. If you have the opportunity, consider picking it up. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Happy crafting, farming, shopping, & exploring friendos.
Happy weekend, Mefites! This weekend, jacquilynne wondered what games people are enjoying on Android phones lately. I'm also wondering what other kinds of games you've all been into -- boardgames, cardgames, rpg's, console or pc games. Even physical games you play with your actual body, if that's how you roll.

Games are fun, and talking about games is fun. So it's pretty cool that stavrosthewonderchicken has recently built a mefi-inspired site called Gamefilter, for linking to neat game- (video and otherwise) related stuff on the web and talking about those things. Go check it out! [more inside]
And seven years later, Super Smash Brothers Brawl has landed. I would love to smash some MeFites. [more inside]
DaShiv has made a suggestion about the Mefi TF2 server's map rotation. Thoughts?
Since I started this AskMe thread about the game of go a couple of weeks ago, I've taught myself the basics, and I've just opened an account on the Dragon Go Server. Are there any other MeFites around that want to join along with me? Now's the time--if you're an absolute beginner then you'll be certain to have at least one other total newbie to play against, and if you know something about go, then you can start schooling me. (My ID over there is Prospero--same as here.)
I found these two groovylittle turn based web games from the text ads here. So, I'm wondering is anyone else playing, and is there any interest in our forming a Mefi gang and wreaking chaos and terror through the world?
