Inspired by a comment that SusanR had made in the threads and after a suggestion by Uba to change this to a FAQ article, I thought I would start a collection of terms that have been defined on F:AT As more come up, they will be added to the Glossary.
Ameritrash: A style of board game enjoyed by friendly people, who appreciate the finer things in life - like guns and monsters.
CCG: Coasted through College, Gaming; or, Collectable Card Game.
CDG: Card Driven Game; as defined by Brian Morris.
Cockbag: The step between douchebag and cocksucker.
Dice: the plural form of the English noun "die."
DoaM: Dudes on a Map. The first known usage is here .
Efficiency Engine: Code phrase for games for people afraid of direct competition; e.g., spreadsheet.
Eurogame: A style of board game enjoyed by commies and spreadsheet-lovin IQdick-measurin' book-keepers (e.g., Twatcycle).
Excited Man: F:AT Eurogamer/Twatcycle/Wanker mascot
FFG: Fantasy Flight Games
FLGS: Friendly Local Game Store.
Fuck-wittery: F:AT Humor.
Fun-Murderer: One who completely kills the fun in a game, and, in the process, often drains their fellow players' souls.
German Games: what Eurogames were called before they really started to completely suck.
"He Fucking Dick then Bullshit": The quintessential phrase uttered by a Twatcycle when he is enranged. Meant to convey anger, the words are often garbled due to a mix of his social ineptitude and general wankerism.
Interaction: If playing Eurogame, "stealing" an action before someone else can get to it. If playing Ameritrash, smiting your opponents with overwhelming force -- possibly causing the dreaded player elimination.
Player Elimination: (1). A fabulous mechanic whereby a suck-ass loser is tarred and feathered out of a game and forced to either go home early (thus ruining all-night gaming plans), play Xbox (a fate worse than death), or fetch chips and drinks for the rest of the evening. Made unpopular by suck-ass losers and sensitive man-children. (2).- Elegant design idiom deployed by clever Eurogame designers whereby player interaction or engagement is eliminated, thus allowing clever and elegant mechanics to function properly without human interference. See: RACE FOR THE GALAXY
Price Fixing: something that Mayfair Games and other publishers are not doing, despite repeated accusations by idiots.
Recockulous: When ridiculous just isn't enough.
Shitphile: A person who talks about gamers more than games.
Tanktop: not to be worn, under any circumstances, by heterosexual men; in other words, only wear if you "Love T3H Cock"
T3H Cock: What Steve "tanktop" Avery loves.
TOS: The Other Site.
TOSser: Inhabitant of TOS.
Twatcycle: A full-blown wanker that is skilled in the art of passive-agressiveness.
Wanker: A person who impedes enjoyment of any hobby, in our case, boardgames.
