Glad to see the cult of "rigid boundaries of the horror genre must be tightly policed" has followed us here from the other Shocktober game.  ::)

Putting all that aside, this still hasn't developed into an actual game. So long as people are only eliminating from the original 10, nobody gets to play another card. It's very polite and I like that about us, but this is a game of Go Fish where people are just drawing from the pile.

Not only am I the first to get stepped on, but it’s for the sake of adding friggin’ TREMORS? Talk about adding insult to injury....

Tremors is a classic in the genre.

I know comedy/horror is a thing, but it's a thing in that it is a genre. It's not horror proper anymore. Not if you're laughing.
