Estonut:

Even the internet can't help with your "PoE". What I get is some video game "Point of Exile", a singer, & of course Edgar Allan.

When I say I don't know slang attached to a list of games, why not believe me? I would ATA on supposed "common knowledge" Qs that are not common knowledge to me.

Why not play along yourself, instead of just bopping in to tell players what you feel they should have known. Hey, there's an idea.

My "intellect & experience" was no help. The only of the games I had experience with is horseshoes, & the people I played with no more knew the rules than I.

Slang terms can refer to anything. Logic doesn't have to be involved.
