From time to time we do get a few Game Identification questions, that are off-topic since they lack images. However, is it acceptable if we redirect users towards other domains where they can get their answer? For example:
What is the videogame that featured X and Y features, based on a real playing-card game?
That is off-scope for Arqade, however it wouldn't be too far fetched to assume that the folks over at Card Games would be able to identify the game (if it doesn't break their own rules).
Furthermore, there are other websites, such as a particular subreddit which is dedicated solely to identifying games (even without images), so that would help out some users.
Should we just say "no, this is off-topic. I'm sorry", or alternatively "This is off-topic, try [here]" ?
