This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

This caught my attention. It looks fun. Artistes Miserables is a card game about playing a 19th century painter desperately trying to die impoverished so their work becomes famous after their death. Of course, while you're trying to ensure your painter's total misery, the other players are trying to cheer you up and get your art sold! I like the concept of mocking the "suffering artist" concept and renaming famous art with new memes looks fun too.
