The rules are simple:
1. Make Dad jokes.
Forum-inute there I thought this was going to be a serious thread.
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?
This thread is so lame it can't even walk properly
Aww, don't be mad, or we are going to have to call this thread "Game of Horns".
I tried doing a thread like this before, it died quickly RIP.
This one won't die if we all make dad jokes!
Okay, that sounded really Really dumb.
Then i will refuse to do so
You don't need to be rude.

All of them
(And great joke.)
The protagonist walks into a bar and does nothing.
In his hands, a script which reads:
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.
Could you...explain that to me?
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.
Oh, okay, I understand now.
Funny joke, Enlightened.
