I want to play the game is being played in reddit https://redd.it/6a1hud I will think of a trope and you will ask yes/no questions in order to guess it. Let's see how many questions you need.

I think I'd be cool if other people thought of a trope too, since I won't be able to reply every question in real time and I don't want to be the bottleneck for the fun :) I think the best way not to confuse people would be to do your other games in another thread? Idk, whatever you think it's better. Can you guess my trope?

Is it a story trope (eg. Gainax Ending)?

Does it involve a plot device?

"Is it a story trope (eg. Gainax Ending)?" I am not sure I know what you mean by story trope. If you mean a pattern that refers to the structure of the story, like how to end a story, how to start it and so on, then NO. Please clarify the question if you meant a different thing.

"Does it involve a plot device?" NO

[up][up] yeah, that's what I mean. sorry if my question isn't too clear.

Is it a naming convention or a theme naming?

Does it relate to marketing?

But the Main page is full of indexes. Is the trope an index of many other tropes?

Btw, I am willing to tell the trope to ONE person, so they can answer if I am not available or can help/correct me, just in case. If you want to be that person just say it.

"But the Main page is full of indexes. Is the trope an index of many other tropes?" No, it's just a trope, not an index or anything weird. Actually, I selected it by clicking in the random trope button

"Is it some sort of superpower?" No

"Is it one of The Oldest Ones in the Book?" No

I'll give you a hint, it is particular thing that happens in a story, I mean, there are some stories in which this happens.

So, to clarify based on the laconic of The Oldest Ones in the Book: it didn't exist before 1960?

I'm so sorry I misinterpreted and didn't realize of one thing. It is even one of the Older than Dirt

I'm going to give a hint because I'm not seeing questions flowing. It involves a mother
