I dunno bout you but whenever I hear the word tavern I think of lord of the rings and drinks, do you think it would be a nice funny thing they could add or do you think i'm insane?

Lord of the Rings?

....each to his own I suppose.

Question: What would 'virtual drinks' accomplish other then show the many youngsters around here that "drinking is cool"?

I guess so but it just feels incomplete without drinks and maybe it dosen't have to be alchoholic and you can mix your own drinks and stuff.

It was the first time I heard and learned the word so it stuck with me.

It's a PG-13 site, I doubt anything of the sort is going to happen. Also, Blaze is right, we teens don't need anymore encouragement that drinking is cool.

ArmorGames has to remain family-friendly and pg-13, which excludes drinking and alcohol. Anyone can view The Tavern, not just those registered. And yes, GangstaBlaze is correct--there are very impressionable kiddos here/not here.

On that note, you might find me concocting some Koolaid in the back if you catch me at the right time. I'm currently in the process of making a coconut kiwi drink.

AG already promotes gun violence (Sierra 7), suicide (Evey day the same dream), brutally beating up people (Sonny series) and other things that parents would shudder to think about. Virtual drinks shouldn't hurt. It is like putting a straw on a camel that is already dead.

Yes... but again, what would be the overall purpose of this?

- What would it do?
- Why would one want to do it?
- Would it take up space?
- How would it work?
- Is it needed?

These are questions that I have about this whole thing.

The difference being that those are flash-games. Armor Games is only a host, to Games, which is the whole point of this site. However, nowhere does AG promote death and destruction.

Now, drinking on the other hand, if the site were to actively push that... then we'd have a problem, and you'd see your page on CNN. (lol)

Hmm...why the word "virtual"

Also, Kongregate has much more lenient policies regarding profanity than AG.  Check their Off-Topic section if you wish to be enlightened.
