View Full Version : So I've been thinking...

What if we had a board wide tournament? Let's face it, the board hasn't been as exciting as usual lately, so we could make things more interesting this way. Since we are all on different platforms and an amount of us don't have a computer that can run anything more technically advanced than Quake 2, I was thinking we'd do it with some simple flash games, like online versions of things like Battleship and chess.

So, is this something people would be interested in? If you are interested, what games would you like to do?

The computer I'm on now is awesome. I own Jedi Knight Jedi Academy on the PC, which is far as I'm concerned, one of the best games ever made and it's not hard to run. I recently was told that Lord of The Rings online has gone free to play, the only flash game that I play on here (because that's all I mainly know of) is Robot Unicorn Attack! So I am interested.

So basically who can get the highest scores on Viva Caligula, or any other flash game for that matter?

I was thinking more along the lines of multiplayer games, so we will actually be competing head to head. Set up a tournament ladder and have everyone compete until we get a winner.

We should all go to the video aracade and have a "House of the Dead" marathon. The rules are simple... you shoot zombies until you pass out, and then someone tags themself in until you regain conscious... or die... or both.

We're the last of the french foreign legion Kent , we're all over the four corners of the world ...

The reunion itself is going to need a huge load of preparation ...

Ok, so how does Tetris sound for the first tournament? Tetris Friends (http://www.tetrisfriends.com/) seems to be pretty simple for setting up matches, and it have six players at once.

Any suggestions for games is good too. You guys will be the ones deciding what to do, so let me know if you guys have any ideas.

I'm totally in whenever you're ready to go, I already signed up...

of course if it's a weekday I probably won't be able to do anything that's not 5 P.M.-8 P.M, and on weekends between 7 A.M. and 8 A.M....

Brackstone17

I'll probably leave it a day or two just so we can get as many people as possible, then sort out a time based on that.

Ok, sorry I haven't gotten back to this, I was busy.

Anyway, how about either Thursday or Friday next week at say, 6:00pm (GMT-4)? Does this work for everyone?

SlashPrower
15th Sep 2010, 23:56
Works for me.

EDIT: Wait, GMT? *goes to check time zones* I'll try but I'm not sure I'll be back from school at that time.

Wow, okay, the thing at the bottom of the screen is lying to me. It's 8:00pm as of this post for me, so whatever time it is for you guys as of this post, subtract 2 hours, and that's when we'll do it if that's all cool.

Edit: Okay, so 11:00pm GMT.

Should we set up a ladder?

Brackstone17
16th Sep 2010, 01:06
That's a good question, what would everyone prefer, a bunch of 1v1s, or one or two large group games, the winners of which face each other for the title?

I told you people to live in my mansion , things would have been so much easier , and my bed wouldn't be so cold all the time ...


so whatever time it is for you guys as of this post, subtract 2 hours, and that's when we'll do it if that's all cool.

Edit: Okay, so 11:00pm GMT.

That's not possible , because if i substract 2 hours from the time of Your posting , it makes it 12:00PM GMT ...

What's everybody else seeing ? ...

Brackstone17
16th Sep 2010, 20:03
I think the time zones on the site are messed up. That and I blame daylight savings time.


Anyway, what I was trying to say was that we'd do it about six o'clock my time. So when I posted that message, it was 8:00 for me. Subtract 2 hours from what ever time it was for you when I posted that message, and you get what time we'd do it. You got 12:00 most likely because of the useless existence of daylight savings time.

I've had enough trying to sort out GMT since the site seems to be strange with that at the moment.

I don't even roll on GMT , WTH , this WTF is just plain BOO ...

Right , now , you're saying that we have to wait Another week ? ...

If we are, then we can do it now. Honestly, it's seeming like we won't be able to get everyone together at one time, so I'm working on a ladder system of 1v1s.

Adding you now.

EDIT: *****, I'm the only one around here who gets the shark icon. >_<

This is so embarassing. One of us has to go change. You'd better hope I find an icon nearly as good.

Brackstone17
22nd Sep 2010, 22:39
Hey, I was here first. That shark is mine, I tells ya.

Also I have no idea how to do anything on this site yet. Best I can tell, I can't even challenge you to a match.

Yes, but then the game booted me for hanging around too much. Time for another DUEL!
