The Game of Groans is like the game of thrones, except it's less throne-y, and more groan-y.

If neither this thread or Game of Thrones are that entertaining, then would you call it Game of Thorns?

The protagonist walks into a bar and does nothing.

In his hands, a script which reads:

Man: One double entendre, please.
But the protagonist doesn't read from the script. The protagonist declines to protagon.

The bartender saunters over and prompts: "what'll it be," but the protagonist only turns away.

The script falls limply from the protagonist's fingers onto the floor.

Years pass. No one else comes, no one leaves. The bartender looks around at his mostly empty bar and realizes that the setting and characters only exist in service of a punchline which the protagonist's radical act of refusal has indefinitely deferred.

The bartender pleads: "Please, spare me from this limbo. Get this man a double entendre".

But he doesn't get it.

So, in RPGs, you can refuse to move the story on by not advancing any text box that pops up. If this happens, the world will be on an indefinite loop, until you choose to advance that text box.

Basically, this is the bartender "double entendre" joke, but takes place in a RPG with a procrastinating protagonist.

In this situation, the protagonist just drops their script with the joke on it and stands there for years. This symbolizes their refusal to advance the joke in the metaphorical text box, and therefore the story. After years, the bartender gets fed up and pleads them to advance the joke, but they still refuse. This is why the protagonist never gets the double entendre.

At least, that is what I can gather from this.
