Abstract Gamers are assholes (but they're right)

def. - These games are heavily themed and have gameplay that is centered around the theme. These games value theme over play mechanics, even reducing skill to make theme play out better. These are near opposite of abstract strategy games. A subset of Ameritrash games are beer and pretzel games.

Surely, they mean Monopoly, Pay Day, etc.. in which case I concur - but lumping party games (under the alternym of "beer and pretzel") is just plain wrong.
