The Gamingsteve RISK Tourney
« on: September 08, 2010, 05:11:38 pm »
So, here's an idea for a fun forum game using an online game titled LandGrab. There's already a thread here for the program itself, but this is more of a competition than a discussion on the game.

So, basically this is how it'll work, if everything goes well. Set up an account(it should be relatively easy, its just the standard email verification) and add the other forum members to your Buddy list. The game is basically an online game of risk with a few minor changes, and anyone who's ever played RISK should be able to pick it up real quick. The twist, though, is that all the maps are custom-made. I've created a mediocre one, and there's some ones that are better, at least in my opinion, than the official RISK board. There are two types of games as well. Long term games will run for 24 hours before skipping your term and Real-Time games usually run around 5 minutes. If you win a real time game, you get a point, a tally of which will be added to the right of your nickname right below this introductory paragraph. If you win a long-term one, you'll get five points. I'll run 2 long-term games at once, the maps to be decided by poll. Anybody who wants can set up a real-time game, it has to have at least three GS members to make it official, though. I'll also keep a list of community-made maps up at the bottom. So to start it off, either register or log in, pick a username and a preffered color, and post. The first map will be Pangaea, and I'll set up a poll with a few choice others for the second map to run alongside the firstDone. Please vote! If you want to suggest one, the map browser's here.

Excellent! I've added you to my contacts and to the first post. Once we get a few more people, we can start up the first long-term game.

Great. As a test of the system, I've set up a real time game, seeing as all three registered members are on. I've sent you all invites.

It worked out well, actually, aside from the fact that I had to leave halfway through. Kenotai left as well later on, so the two guys we had to let in to fill up the board duked it out for a time. Hopefully we'll get a few more players next time.

Here's the map at around the time that I left. I'm army green, and Kenotai's blue. As you can see, Kenotai was pretty much beating the stuffing out of everybody.



Once we get one or two more members signed up, I'll issue invitations for the first long-term map.
