Minigame Thread

Postby emlightened » Sun Apr 10, 2016 11:53 am UTC

The idea is simple - the page topper for each page decides what game is played on that thread. (If the page topper forgets, its fine for the next poster to make a new game, or for the game to be continued over multiple pages.) It could be Count to 40, a roleplay, Triple Post — whatever you like. It could also be used for play-testing a game to go on the main forum; the choice is yours.


I'll start with something simple:


Count to 40

Rules: We count to 40.

Thank you.
It was inspired by these sporadic half-page games we sometimes have on threads like Longest Time and Maximize.

Yeah, Longest Time does tend to get especially sidetracked.

'alf dozen

I planned on starting with a boring game in case people wanted to chat, but that hasn't happened.

The next one will be more interesting. Really, it will!

We're chatting now, aren't we? :P

How serious/strict do you expect the games to be? I assume we can make each one as complex as we want, but with 40 posts for each one I'd assume the more jokey ones would work best - I'm thinking of things like "You must not say duck" and "You must kill flicky", although obviously we won't just duplicate the existing threads.

I expect it to be mainly games where people can just pop in to post, and what you do in the long run doesn't really matter, as it would be difficult to make scores work. I wouldn't be surprised to find a Nomy or a worldbuilding game here either, though.

A nomic would be nice because it would be hard for it to get too complicated to play. Also, we'd be making the rules knowing exactly when the game will end, which would probably mean rules along the lines of "the player with the most points at the end of this page wins" instead of more traditional win conditions.

Actually, same goes for world-building in terms of it not getting too complicated to play. Anyone can just jump into a game when everything is right there on the latest page.

Hence why I should have started with a less boring game.

Do you think we can get cyan to speed this up?
