The downfall of a board icon

Postby Munboy » Sun Dec 02, 2007 12:06 am

The PBC.

What happened to it? Was it beat to death last year. Seemed like everybody PBCed every single game and there was always takers. This year, there doesn't seem to be that many at all. And when there is a challange put forth, there aren't many takers. Was the massive amount of PBCs last year the cause of it's decline this year? The true meaning of the PBC (rival or big games) was lost last year. Is the PBC completely lost to us?

Paper Bag Challenge... rules: viewtopic.php?t=129225#p782880

I don't know Munboy, does seem to be quite a bit down this year. I have to wear this sig/av so I haven't been able to be in on challenges. I wish I knew what was up. I think that there might be a lot of newer members that don't know what PBC means. That might be the thing... tough to tell. I think you are right though.

It lost its luster when people started with non divisional games. People would PBC any game then you'd see paperbag av's everywhere and there was no shame in wearing them. JMO

I agree. I dont visit DTKWW or Sit or Start forums on a regular basis, but to me it seems like the cafe is slow this season and/or a lot of the old regulars dont come around anymore. I see more people I have never seen posting before than names I know.

Well its my first season on the cafe and just started joinin the PBC's so i dont have a lot of input. Its pretty fun, but maybe having them only be divisional would help.
