      1. Are the mechanics pretty reminiscent of M:TG—first to deal X damage with spells/creatures wins? Or some other thing? 2. What platform do you play on? 3. Do you mostly play vs AI or other players?

      All right, here's an experiment: I literally wrote this entire post just now to give you someplace to gush about that free-to-play online card game you mention. Maybe somebody else will even join in with us. 🙂

      Oh, of course! I don't mean to sound crass by pointing out the for-profit thing (especially speaking as someone who has worked at for-profit companies for most of his postgraduate life). Truth be told, one of the main reasons I keep coming back …

      Haha, oh jeez, I was trying to find new topics on Cake with more activity than the ones I was following for, dropped by "parenting," saw the post was "December 1" and thought it was a few days old. Sorry for the thread revival. Glad things worked …

      When talking with one another, my wife and I tend to refer to our parents with possessive pronouns ("my dad," "your parents"); we only bust out the new nicknames when in a conversation that includes the 15-month-old ("grandma and grampa are coming …

      Yeah, I definitely want to use and love this site—I'm just starting to think that the moral of all my lengthy posts is "I am not looking for the things Cake does best, and that's okay." 🤔 I came here looking for a G+ replacement, and it took me …

      Yeah, pretty much. I do appreciate serendipity, meeting new people, and learning new things, but I'm not inclined to visit a new website with nobody I know on it to satisfy those desires. Just a different set of use cases. And since other sites …

      Thank you for the compliment, and I agree that users can indeed do a lot to boost Cake exactly as you suggest. I'm just not likely to do that right now. That probably sounds ... ah, "blunt" at best, or "like I'm an a-hole" depending on how it …

      I'm not sure how you can respectfully disagree about "most posts I come across." 😉 Part of what's tricky here is that I ma not interested in digging for conversations unrelated to my specific interests—my M.O. is to just hit the front page and only …

      Back when I first jotted some thoughts upon A First Taste of Cake, I concluded that I might crosspost some writing here as I moved away from G+ and toward other platforms. I haven't done that for a few reasons, though, even though I poke my head in …

      Unless I'm missing something, the only way to unfollow a conversation is to click through into the conversation and unfollow from there. It would be handy if you could avoid the extra click and just unfollow conversations directly from your ★ …

      Thanks for taking the time to write this thoughtful reply! (And for taking the time to e-stalk me. I'm flattered!) I have to imagine you're right that the influx of G+ users (like me!) is having a disproportionate effect on the noise around …

      I became very hopeful about Cake since someone I follow on G+ shared @Scobleizer's recent conversation, Can Cake clean up Silicon Valley's social problem? It's rare that something posted online makes me say that you should read it and read the …
