Définitions

Bot

Ce sont des joueurs artificiels contre lesquels vous pouvez jouer lorsque vous jouez en solo ou pour ajouter un joueur virtuel autour de la table. Certains jeux les appellent Automa.

Downtime

Il s'agit de l'attente de son tour. Cette notion permet de graduer le temps entre chaque tour des joueurs. Certains jeux demandent à chaque joueur de résoudre un certain nombre d'actions à leur tour et donc augmentent le "Downtime".

Kingmaker

Il arrive que le choix proposé en cours de partie va être de désigner le vainqueur de la partie. Ce choix arrive lorsque vous ne pouvez pas gagner vous-même ou que vous voulez juste terminer le jeu rapidement.

Solo

Globalement, les jeux sont pratiqués à plusieurs mais il existe qui sont prévus uniquement pour un seul joueur. Certains jeux multijoueurs proposent un mode solo permettant découvrir le jeu seul voire d'offrir un réel challenge intéressant.

Pimp I embraced this idea early on. Blinging out your game might mean upgrading the components or buying an insert. AP Analysis paralysis is when you just can’t make a decision as to what to do on your turn or you take a really long time. Legacy This is a game where you rip up cards or write on them. Some are designed to be played once only. Minis Plastic models that serve little or no purpose but add to the wow factor and make the game more expensive. Kickstarter This is when you pay for a game which is delivered months or even years later, if at all. They come with Stretch goals which is another term for minis. Pre-order This is a bit like Kickstarter but doesn’t take quite as long. Filler This is a games that doesn’t fill you up (a bit like sushi) but you play it between other games. The filler in a sandwich between the other games! Party games Games you play at parties (eh?) PNP You download a file and print out your own game! Sleeves Little bits of plastic which you put on cards to stop people bending them or putting Wotsit dust on them. Co-op You all play together against the game. So no one looses. Point salad Describes a game where you can pick up points all over the place. Euro Otherwise known as a cube pusher, tends not to have much theme or direct player interaction. Meeple To combat those boring old cubes we have Meeples. etymologically... Meeple = contraction of my and people This term was coined by Alison Hansel, a Boston area gamer, during a game of Carcassonne if memory serves. I believe it also happened at one of the earlier Unity Games event Dungeon crawler This is where the game is set in dungeon and you equip your warrior and then fight monsters. Exciting eh? 18XX games These are train games. So presumably a bit like TtR but more complicated. Dexterity games The closest thing to playing sports for Geeks who are notoriously bad at sports. Orthogonal You think it would be easier to say than "you can't go diagonally". One of my favorites is Istanbul, and only being able to move orthogonal initially makes movement choices critical. 4 X games. These are neither dirtier than XXX movies nor do they have anything to do with the exchange of foreign currency. These are Civilization building games, many of which are set in space OR go through a broad sweep of our history. The Xs are: eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate. These tend to be epic in scope and very thinky. Tap Almost embarrassing, but I did not know what this was until a few years ago. I have been in the hobby seriously for 8 years, but I had to ask after seeing it mentioned multiple times in the forums. Obviously, I am not a Magic: The Gathering player. Edit: For those that were like me, tapping is when you rotate a card 90 degrees to show that it has been used this turn. "Living Card Games" (LCGs) are a variation on Collectable Card Games (CCGs). CCGs are, as Osiris Ra puts it, "gamer crack" because you have to keep buying and buying, hoping to get the more-valuable cards. LCGs have all the same cards in a particular release. For instance, through all of FFG's Netrunner "data packs", all of the copies of a release had the same cards--no need to buy more than one, there weren't any rare cards; everyone got the exact same thing.
