  • Same as think like If you reckon someone wouldn't finish a hard game then you wouldn't think they would be able to.

  • In this instance, it would mean the same thing as 'believe'.

    So "I reckon you didn't do it" is the same as "I believe you didn't do it".

    For example

    I reckon It was a good idea to asking my questions in a place like this!
    I reckon Telltale should just work on The walking dead
    I reckon America is the best country

    Correct?

  • So, you think asking these questions was a good idea, Telltale should be making more Walking Dead games and America is awesome? ...eh, one out of three isn't too bad, I guess...

    But yeah, you got it.

    What does "fellas" mean?

    does "I've driven a buncha'"... mean "I've driven a bunch of " ?

  • Fellas is slang for a group of people. For example, you could greet a bunch of friends by saying "Hey fellas!".

    And yes, buncha is another way of saying bunch of. You're catching on.

  • Fellas is just a way of spelling fellows the way some people say it. That and reckon (and probably buncha) are using a Southern U.S. accent. Reckon is a real word, but the rest are just attempts at spelling the way someone is talking.

    Hi again, it's been a while after my last visit, I've been working on a game but I've had some problem for establishing a game studio, For now I'm just trying to establish a game studio to continue my way.

    Anyway, I have some more questions here
    My problem is the usage of the word "Fancy"
    I want you correct me if I'm wrong!
    A fancy chair means an expensive and pretty chair
    But in the following sentence
    If you're fancy means If you like! correct ?
    Or it's mean If you are a person with tend to expensive and pretty things?

    Please help thanks.

  • OK, the word fancy has several different meanings, but we'll look at the examples you use.

    "A fancy chair" means impressive or extravagant.

    The phrase "If you fancy" (not "if you're fancy") is the same as saying 'if you want to' or, as you say, 'if you like'.

    Thanks, about "if you're fancy" I've seen this in the Walking Dead!
    Chuck told lee, Name's Chuck. Charles if you're fancy!

    My next question is about "pants off" in the following sentence.
    "scaring the pants off of you"

    Does it mean to frighten someone to death?
