You turned yourself in immediately after. Don't be so hard on yourself.

If anything, this just means your friends will think you better at bluffing. I don't think they'll judge you beyond that.

They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Eh, it's poker. You're supposed to cheat.

It's a good way to get rid of friends who take games too seriously :P

You didn't give yourself an advantage - in fact, you did the opposite. No harm no foul I say.

If you're worried about how calm you were about doing it, remember that you maintained self control and fixed the problem. You've no reason to be hard on yourself .

The problem never is that some people take games "too seriously", but rather the seriousness taken isn't consistent among the whole group. It's just as bad to have a clown amidst a group of hardcore players as it is to have a munchkin in a group of laid-back roleplayers.

Yeah, but it's more that it's a game between friends, involving money, and based entirely on trust. Which I am the host for.

Also there was such a massive awkward silence afterwards, too...

We are doomed. It's just that whatever is going to kill us all just happens to be, from a scientific standpoint, pretty frickin' awesome.

The original writer is laughing that they're getting attention for it.

I'm sad because Toady won't spend a bit of time fixing the more glaring UI issues. I understand he doesn't want to make a change that'll just be nullified in future versions, but doing something like consolidating the commands, so that Escape always goes back one page, space always pauses/unpauses, enter always selects, etc? Adding a Dwarf Therapist style labour screen and/or Gnomoria-style professions (letting you make a "Metalworker" profession that has all the metal-working labours, and just telling a Dwarf "You're a metalworker now." and he has those labours)? Adding the DFHack Search function to screens? Letting you select a material to build constructions with, even if you don't have that material on hand, a la DFHack planning mode?

Those don't seem like things that would be nullified in the future, and would make playing the vanilla game so much better. I'm sure one could think of further changes like that, of course.
