On Arqade, we have occasionally solved this problem by adding the publication year to the tag to uniquely identify the specific game. The new Doom game, for example, is tagged [doom-2016] to distinguish it from the original Doom game. The same approach should work here, at least in this case, where we already know that all of the games with that name were ...

It appears that "ethics" has a specific meaning to Bridge players, so as an immediate fix I propose that the existing tag be renamed to bridge-ethics and given corresponding usage guidance by a user who knows more about bridge. The tag isn't used much yet, but perhaps bridge players will start using it more once it's clearer what it's for. As other answers ...

As of last summer (or winter if you are on the other side of the equator from me), tags with wikis are preserved. So if you tag a question with game that doesn't have any more questions, you may: Write up a tag wiki, or Ask another question. Either will preserve the tag.

Feels like a meta-tag to me. From The Death of Meta-tags: How can you tell you're using a meta-tag? It's easier than you might think. If the tag can't work as the only tag on a question, it's probably a meta-tag. If the tag commonly means different things to different people, it's probably a meta-tag. end-game can't be the only tag on a question. It's ...

Done. May take a few minutes for caches to update. All 20 questions are now pandemic-legacy-season-1. Assuming the two do end up being very clearly different, I would favor pandemic-legacy-season-1 and pandemic-legacy-season-2. Might as well use the full names given by the publisher, and if we tried to keep pandemic-legacy for season 1, but add pandemic-...

Assuming that the game of Poker Dice is on-topic at all, then it is reasonable to have a tag for it. After all, it is normal to have a tag for each game. Dice games are on-topic, according to this earlier discussion, so Poker Dice qualifies. At your level of reputation, you can create a new tag. So you could add it to your question and see how it is ...

Adding additional tags is only worth it if: People will be searching for that particular type of question You can become an "expert" in that particular tag, above and beyond being an expert in the general tag (i.e., there's no point in a general [strategy] tag, because you can't become an expert in every possible game; there's also no point in an [uno-last-...

(This is more replying to "Is it used properly in the bridge questions?" than to the original question; but it is still an answer rather than a comment) Bridge has (nearly universal) rules that cover the inevitable mistakes; if you revoke by playing one card when you were obliged to play another there is a two trick penalty, reduced to one if the effect was ...

I added dice-masters to both of the questions that previously had marvel-dice-masters and removed that tag from the. I also copied the tag wiki over to the new tag.

I think that the ethics tag is just fine but it may or may not be appropriate on the questions it is tagged. As I am not that familiar with bridge I am unable to judge if those tags are used properly or not. A couple of areas where I think the tag does have some use. Questions about king making in games where a player causes someone else to win/lose while ...

I'm not a bridge player, but I think those questions could all be tagged cheating. Those four questions appear to all essentially ask whether something is considered cheating in a formal context. If the subject of the question is permissible, it's not cheating, though I suppose it could still be bad etiquette. If it isn't permissible, it's cheating, though ...

Added the tag. Tags will get fixed pretty quickly around here. If needed, you can always flag the question.

Go ahead and create the tag, that reasoning is perfectly solid. If we do have a tag for this, it's not very discoverable to either of us. Were we to discover it later we'd probably create a synonym. We can cross that bridge when we come to it.

As a Go player, I want to be able to drill down to a specific aspect of the game, so tagging a question as "life and death" or "endgame" (rather than end-game) is definitely useful. If we don't want a meta-tag, we could use go-specific jargon, and talk about fuseki, tsumego or yose. The issue here is that it creates a barrier for beginners, who are not yet ...

In the context of board games from the user perspective. The primary arena that really has "ethical" concerns would be publishing. (Is it ethical to report on a publisher that has rejected my game?). That and maybe modern sensitivities (Such as the question of Puerto Rico and the brown colonists cubes). Also the ethics of making a game that reinforces ...

I think there's more benefit than detriment to lean toward having the base game and expansion be in the same tag. Powerlord has pointed out that having multiple different games refer to the same tag unnecessarily links two different games. If I search for such a tag and find 1200 questions under it, I get no visibility into just how many questions pertain to ...
