Okay, here's my big theory on the Meta-world/game board. I think it's strongly supported by evidence from EP5, but it's still only speculation.

Spoiler for meta:

Some people may be tempted to say that there is no "real truth" in this game, but the fact that the Game Masters can speak in red without any evidence seems to point to there being a "real truth"...or at least many areas that must practically be falsehoods no matter how the battle in the Meta world turns out.
