Well, do ya?


After the total disinterest shown in an attempt to set up a game of WebDiplomacy, anonimouse wondered if there were any online games that would get enough interest.

So here's the idea. Propose an online game by starting a thread with the link to the game, and if others like the idea they can add an AOL-type "Me too!" reply to the thread. We'll start anything that gets enough votes. A game that doesn't need 24/7 attention would be good, because I don't want to have to get up at 4:00am to see if anyone is trying to raid me on Ogame, Ok? I will go for games like this, but if we do, we need US "sitters" to cover the Night Watch (geddit).

Anyone suggesting FarmVille will be dragged out and shot.

I didn't know there was a suggestion... by atreides (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Aug 12, 2010 at 12:05:29 PM EST
...afoot to do something like this. Count me in! I love games! And I consider it tragic that in all my years of playing, I have never played Diplomacy. :(

But is someone suggests something else, that's good, too!

Add your 4 to the link below. Pop into this diary and 4 anything else that you'd join in, as its possible that your first choice won't get enough votes.

WebDiplomacy by anonimouse (4.00 / 4) #2 Thu Aug 12, 2010 at 12:08:27 PM EST
http://webdiplomacy.net/ (the website is a bit plain, but the actual games show the normal diplomacy map)

Second attempt to set this up. Rounds of 36-48 hours in order to handle slow players, as suggested
4 this link if you are interested.

It's more like you can't tell the difference.
