We're not the right place to ask questions about:
- Computer games, try gaming.stackexchange.com
- Game Recommendation/Shopping questions, this includes all questions that could be phrased like: Best game for ... ? Which game is like ... ?
My interpretation goes like this:
First bullet point means no questions about computer or console games that have nothing to do with card games
Last bullet point is only related to card games per se. As long as I don't want an explicit shopping list, the question should be okay.
Since I'm not the authority here, I wanted your thoughts, given the examples. Note that I used Yu-Gi-Oh! in the examples because I'm familiar with it, but it could just as well be [insert card game here].
Example question I
Is there software to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG for free?
Yes, it is called YGOPro and is open source.
Okay (in my eyes). Note that I'm not convinced if this question would be on-topic for arcade.
Example question II
Can you list me all software to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG for free?
Example question III
I'm having a bug in YGOPro, can you help me? [Further issue description.]
This has been fixed since [random version number].
Example question IV
I thought [a card] was played like [this way] but YGOPro plays it like [that way], which is right?
You missed something in the description of [a card]
There is [a ruling] that states [that way]
Example question V
[An official ruling] says [this], but YGOPro does [that]. What is right?
Possible answer (for all kinds of these questions and my reasoning why therefore not okay).
Software that simulate card games would basically need a proof that they execute the rules as the rules should be executed, this is no immanent feature of card game simulators. As such, a specific implementation of the game should never be and usually is not used as an official rule reference.
I would like a community consensus about asking such questions. Further examples are welcome. A clarification of the text in the help center may be a good idea because not every new user looks into meta before posting a question.
