I've had this idea rolling around my head for a while for a thing I like to call Itch 'n Bitch (very loosely inspired by Stitch 'n Bitch and book clubs). At its core:
- Once a week, someone decides on a short-ish, freely available game, like the ones found on itch.io (thus the name) or Steam or wherever
- People play it
- Afterward people get together and talk about it, either as they play it, or you get a week to play it before discussion opens to avoid spoilers

The frequency could be something different than once a week, or it could be several short games with a common theme/style, you get the idea.

It might be interesting, though I'd say you could probably allow talk about it even in the week; we do have spoiler tags, after all. (Even if I'd like to make them better, right now they're kind of awkward)

I would probably use a different name, though, just because the current suggested title is, uh.

Fair enough on the title, lol. And even if that weren't the case, it would still help to have a more self-evident title. Something like, uh... Game n' Complain? Game n' Gab? Yeah, that sounds better.

The biggest problem for me running something like that myself would be getting tired of finding games for each week. I do get burned out stupidly easily... But hey, maybe it would be fun for me to try it out and see. Stay tuned! Or if anyone else feels like picking it up, I wouldn't mind in the least.

I was trying to come up with a name and then tried to make a portmanteau out of "Jul" and "judge". "Julge" is possibly one of the worst words I've come up with.

But, nice idea~ I'd be willing to participate.
