So, there's been an ongoing debate on these forums about when it is and isn't acceptable to say "good game" (or "gg") to your opponent
I usually use it [...] regardless of [...] how open the game still is

Some people don't care at all about when and how you use "gg", but among those who do there's a clear consensus that saying "gg" while the game is still open is terrible. Either wait till the game is actually over or you intend to resign right after saying it.

Edit: obviously if you just want to express what a cool game it is you can say that at any time during the game, but don't use "gg" for this. "gg" has become more like the handshake you give your opponent at the end of a chess game, you don't do that halfway and then just play on.

I guess I find "gg" and "hf gl" to be meaningless at best and rude at worst. If you actually want to express a sentiment, then go through the trouble to type the words. Saying "gg" at the end of a game and then immediately leaving is roughly equivalent to saying "kthxbai".

The worst is when people have an automated greeting message. I feel rude if I don't respond to it, but I feel foolish if I do.

I have an automated greeting message. I don't think it's rude or foolish to respond or not respond to it.

I do get peeved when people that say "gl" later on start blaming me for "being lucky" or having "dumb luck" or whatever.  I mean, you wished good luck to me, so it's really your fault; be careful what you wish for.

There are so many people on Dominion Online who don't know what "gl hf" stands for... maybe more than on Board Game Arena or Isotropic.
for a while I really thought people were saying good luck honkey fresh...

Hello ! Are you a truly new member ? Because I'm a bit surprised you choose that trend as to post your first post ever.
Sorry if you're truly new.

Chocolate is like victory points in Dominion. Both taste good but they'll hurt you if you eat too much of it instead of something else in your early days.

Owned by backstab :

He bought 9 markets, I didn't buy a single one (going BM - Big Money !)
Turn 13, he buys 4 gardens and... hey, what happens ?
Also I had lots of $7 turns !

When I saw him ignoring witch for market, I thought to a cool game, but it wasn't when my Chapel missed its 2nd reshuffle (the 3rd, also the 1st one when I could play it - draw phase of turn 6)

EDIT : link with the topic : he could have ended the game for a while if he ended a 3rd pile... Estate for instance.

You could try "ggah", which as we all know stands for "good game, asshat".

Thank you for updating my vocabulary with this useful and amazing word!
