I fail to see how these might be construed as fitting into the "Pulp" gaming category or even the "Toy" gaming category for that matter.

In French "sympathique" means something like "nice." The French for "false cognate" is "faux ami."

In French "sympathique" means something like "nice."

Ah, yes, of course, thank you. I thought it must be a mistranslation

The French for "false cognate" is "faux ami."

Sorry, I don't see the connection to the previous sentence? What is a "false cognate"?

You probably meant "pathetic". :-)

A false cognate is a word that looks like a borrowed word, but in fact has an entirely different meaning.

Thank you. I get the connection now.
