TBG Wiki

The Text Based Games Forums, or the TBGs, is the successor to the Scratch Text Based Games Forums. The website was created on 17 September, 2012, and currently houses over 1800 users and has accumulated over 600000 posts. The site is located at tbgforums.com .


The Text Based Games Forums originated from the Scratch Text Based Games Forums when the Scratch TBGs were officially slated for closure in early September 2012. After much drama and fighting from some of the community, three forums offered to host the new Text Based Games Forums on their own separate sites. The three forums were:

  • Skyline's Forums, administrated by jji7skyline
  • The Luxturna Forums, administrated by 360-International
  • Text Based Games Forums 2.0, administrated by tailskirbyyoshifan

Later, an election was held to determine who the adminstration would be for the new forums. The survey showed that jji7skyline (1st place), 360-International (2nd place), and mythbusteranimator (3rd place) would be the administration. The alpha version of tbgs.tk soon followed in September 17th, 2012.

Domain name changes[]

While the URL was originally tbgs.tk, it was parked and turned into a virus-filled site (date unknown, please add), causing the TBGs to move to tbgforums.com. On May 14, 2017, the domain name expired and the TBGs were down for about 12 hours. During that time, many TBGers panicked and alerted jji7skyline.
