3J Forum Game?

Hi all,

I'm off on a road-trip for the weekend but I've got the framework for a new forum game worked out. I'm not ready to commit for an installment of Continent or Commander, but this forum game will divide users into teams and then pit them against each other. It will be a game of strategy and planning, with plenty of opportunities for devious back-stabs and ruthless plays. While your success will greatly depend on how well your team does, in the end, there will be only one winner.

3J

I think I'll likely host it here.

It will be a somewhat (but not extremely) complex game with enough rules to provide a framework for multiple successful strategies, and the thing I'm most excited about is the teamwork aspect that will have to devolve to individual interest at some point. I'm really excited to see what kind of deals will be made and then subsequently broken.

Oh, there will also be a roleplay element with real in-game impact, but it won't be the focus of the game.

How in depth will it be? I don't have a computer or laptop, so would I feasibly be able to compete using only my phone?

Just had a read over the rules, this is going to be fun. :D

Going to be getting a lot of overtime the next couple of weeks, but I'll figure out some way to participate.

Works for me -- really glad to have you! Let me know if you find any ambiguities in the rules.

Cleaned up a couple sections of the rulebook and added this rule to Miscellaneous Rules:

"You can send money to any other Politician at any time in a round so long as its after the Presidential election. However, if you send money to a Politician not in your own party, it will be added as a minor controversy to your list of controversies."

Any time you get a free moment! The way I'm envisioning this is:

A main Politician board with a sub-board for each political party. I don't yet know how many parties there will be or what their names are though, so the sub-boards will have to wait.

No, the nature of this game means virtually all of my notes are going to be in table-form, so I'll just keep them in a spreadsheet. Thanks for the offer!

My pleasure!

Might also be a good idea to throw down an OOC thread in your board 3J, so that now folks know about it, they can chat/discuss it there.  8)

I definitely will once the game starts, but I want to keep all of the chatter here or in the CYS thread until the game starts, so that I don't have an additional place to monitor. Do you think there are a number of BHB players who might be interested but haven't seen it?

Drinking holiday? Damn! I'll send him a PM and he can join when he gets back. Thanks for the heads up.

Hey Berka,

How inconvenient is it to make boards and set board restrictions?

Ideally, we could start getting the sub-boards out before the teams are finalized (once a team has 5 players) so that they can chat and discuss adding more players, but if we do it that way, then you'll have to be semi-frequently adding people to boards and adding new boards, up until the game starts. If that's too inconvenient, then I can try to get teams to be really finalized before having boards created. The downside is that it's a semi-difficult process to organize via PM.

 Are we to assume that similar specific historical-political events happened over the course of this world's history?
I.E. There were a lot of singular glorified and vilified world leaders coming out of WWII, there was alternate-universe weed, alien-earth-monster sex and slightly different Beatles during the Proxy War? Or did different things happen entirely? I had a bizarrely specific idea for a controversey that involves an IRL parallel to history.

I think it will have to be on a case by case basis, unfortunately, but for the most part, we can just basically assume that if it happened on Earth it probably happened here in some form. PM me if you want to ask about a specific controversy!

If that's too inconvenient, then I can try to get teams to be really finalized before having boards created. The downside is that it's a semi-difficult process to organize via PM.

Adding Boards is easy. Creating a private member-group is more entailed, but once it is done, it's very easy to add/remove members to/from it.

If I understand you correctly, you would be looking for each Team to have its own board that only members and guests of that Team can see?

If so, I wouldn't need a finalization of who would be on the teams, but I would need a finalized list of teams/member-groups to create.

Exactly!

So, essentially, you need to know how many teams there will be, and what the names of those teams are? Right on, I'll make sure I get that to you when I have that info.
