Ah, yes. Going meta. How often do you guys do that? Don't think I played enough games to do that.

Transcript

Rachel: Then why did you come here knowing that I’d be here?
Eric: I was counting on something happening to get, uh, Yumi involved. You’re gonna do that, right?
Taylor: . . . yeah, but don’t always count on it.
Andy: He hates it when we metagame too much.
Eric: Metagame?
Ian: Use out-of-character knowledge to our advantage.
Taylor: I’ll let it slide this time, but keep it to a minimum, okay? And you can keep the XP.
<SWIPE>
[Yumi kicks Ulrich's legs out from under him.]
Eric: Thanks? Again?

I use the knowledge, but only to be as funny as possible (usually by helping the monster "accidentally"). I even got xp for helping not-the-heroes survive to be recurring villans, once

I remember one time I was mad at the GM and I was leading the group through a maze I kept going the wrong way on purpose just to make the GM have to draw more of the map.
He broke up with me (over Facebook no less) not to long after. I'm mostly sure these events were unrelated.

At one point, our group was trying to get to a certain town, but we didn't have a map. Our Ranger failed his Nature and Geography rolls, then our Witch, Fighter, and Paladin all failed theirs. So my Rogue said, "oh, I know where we are. I read it in a book once!" and rolled. Nat 20. It's now become a joke for whenever anyone makes a Nat 20 on a skill they have no points in; obviously they know about this specific thing because it happened to be in a book/scroll/game/whatever they were perusing at some point in the past.
The GM has stopped giving us all the necessary info for such rolls, because obviously those books/whatever were tangential at best, and thus not perfect descriptions for our situation.
