If the game thread is be a place to post reviews once the competition has ended, that would be nice to have all the game reviews in a single place and I’m all for it.
If this game thread is to be a place of helping and collaborating filled with spoilers DURING the competition judging, I’m less keen on it.
Maybe we are talking TWO threads per game, i.e. Game Reviews & Game Help. Both would be good. Both would generate more buzz and discussion from players who don’t have the time for long formal reviews.
But let’s not mix two very different things.
