I have a concept for a Stack Exchange similar to Puzzling, but much more casual, and it doesn't really have a home. I am wondering if Puzzling SE would be a good community to get it off the ground with. If not, just leave a couple of down-votes and I'll get the idea.
The Play Stack Exchange would be primarily challenge-oriented like Puzzling SE. We would host casual challenges such as the following game-themed ideas (but it wouldn't be limited to games):
- Where am I: The asker posts a non-UI, first person screenshot of some unnamed game, with enough information in the picture for answerers to work out which game it is and where in the game they are
- Treasure Hunt: The asker details a particular section of a game and requires some particular information that answerers can only find by going to that section of the game and looking for it
- Spot the Fake: The asker shows a few pictures, most of which are from a particular game but one of which has been digitally altered in a way that reveals it isn't from the game. The answerer has to explain which picture is fake and how they know.
I believe I am familiar enough with Puzzling SE to know that these ideas are not complex enough/based on logical thinking-enough to go here, and Gaming SE doesn't allow challenges. Nonetheless I believe this would make for a very enjoyable site.
Puzzling SE could be a kind of parent to Play SE, with those of us who enjoy it making sure it grows up right. It could be where the more casual challenge-makers, who might often get down-voted here for providing questions that are too simple, are directed to. What does the community think?
