But I think we should all celebrate because I got my first set of wheels last saturday, effectively cutting my commute to work in half (time-wise) and therefore from now on I will have only a little time to kill. So I can't help but gravitate back to these forums.

Much love to the President of SMAC on his birthday. Has it really been a year?

With the greatest of trepidation, I have already checked facebook. I would be concerned greatly if my real life identity could be so easily linked to my online alias.

I'll press deirdre skye's flowers in the IP game, (and with that, the thread is brought back on topic.)

if you want to separate the real life from the gaming life, you can make yourself another facebook account using another email address. it's common practice.

also, if i could make a connection..

Anybody up for a simple grid-paper and pencil game?

 

My favourite such game from a very early age is a racing game. It uses 2 dimensional vectors to simulate movement

 

Kind of like this. (sorry about the poor quality)

Every turn you can modify (add -1, 0, or +1 to) your vector in terms of its x, y components.

 

Draw a Track and agree on interference rules (when two or more players intersect paths during the same turn). Like all players affected by interference cannot modify their vectors the following turn.

 

Oh yeah flying off the track results in automatic disqualification of the player from the race.

 

I was thinking that we could also somehow randomize the order in which players complete their turns, just to make things a little less predictable. For example, In Turn 1 the sequence could be players A, B, C, D, while in turn 2 the sequence could be D, B, C, A

 

We can use the files attached as a ZIP archive.

 

:1st:Victory Condition: First player to reach the start/finish line wins!

Why can't I see your (chuft's) posts? Did you remove them on purpose?

 

How well did the AI do playing the Cthulhu Cult? It'd be nice to try a game with a new aquatic faction, to give Svensgaard something to deal with...
