“The Question”
“What is your favorite game with a “take that” mechanic?”

“Maneuvers that directly attack an opposing player’s strength, level, life points or do something else to impede their progress, while usually providing the main engine for player interaction in the game. Usually used in card games, where single unforeseen card plays can cause huge swings in player progress or power.”
