Forum Games Central

Post by OrangeRakoon » Sat Oct 18, 2014 10:36 pm

Welcome to Forum Games and Quizzes, or FG&Q for short. In this thread you can discuss generally upcoming, ongoing or previous Forum Games with other members in the section. It's the place where you can 'pitch' any ideas for games you have to other members, and get their feedback to help you make your idea better. So introduce yourself to the FG&Q community, ask about different games - do pretty much anything you like!

Remember, anyone can make a forum game. You don’t need to have been here for a certain length of time, or have a certain post count – you could have joined yesterday and have a successful game. To actually make one, you just need to have some basic ideas: What type of game are you making, what will your game be about, will your game have a plot - that sort of thing. There are many different types of game, from quizzes and follow-on games to full on roleplays, so we hope that there is something here for everyone. Just remember that it’s usually best to plan your game beforehand, and everything that will happen in the game, before making it. Also, when you first make your game (by clicking ‘new topic’), make sure you have some rules in the first post. You might want to make several reserved posts after this too, as you might need them later in the game for leaderboards, character lists, or whatever other information you might want to keep track of in your game.

Enjoy the games!

Edit: Also just gonna suggest that we maybe try bringing back a few follow on games on a trial basis because if nothing else they're good for getting people who wouldn't normally visit FG&Q to drop in.

Yeah, I've been considering proposing a trial run of a few follow-ons for a while as long as we don't let it get completely out of hand. Certainly I'd back any such proposal.

Did people used to play RPs here? As an avid player of Pathfinder and D&D I'd be really interested in playing one. If I remember correctly, a member did a really popular Batman game based somewhat on "The Dark Knight" which I always wanted to play

Yes! I was hoping for this. I love Follow On games. (providing they're interesting)

Can't say I remember the Batman one, and FG&Q on ONM has been a bit quite as of late, but RPs are still played and luck providing, I may end up hosting one within the week.

If you consider Summoners/Hunters an RP, there may be a space or two going when I start it up on these forums

RPs used to be pretty popular, if I remember correctly. It'd be nice to see a return of them, but I'd have no idea how you'd go about it.

On another note, I wouldn't mind a senate, if this board is active enough. If there's not a lot happening however, then there's no point deterring people and becoming an insular board.

There is always demand for new RPs just that hosting one takes so much time they barely ever get past page 20 for one reason or another lol

From what you guys have said, I might host one. But to be honest I'd much rather play one :) (especially just to get a feel for how they work here)

I'm testing the water with a wrestling based one .. I've never done one before but I should be able to get this going if it generates enough interest.

One thing we could do with follow ons is have them in a subforum within FG&Q with no post count. So you'd be able to post, but unlike a normal post outside it, the number on your profile wouldnt increase in line with your activity there. That way they don't artificially inflate your post count with vapid content, but people still get to have the fun and socialisation that comes with it.

Or we could just get over treating post count as something to be proud of

Definitely back this idea

When will the senate vote on it?

Tbh the senate was such an amazing, meta forum game purely for the people who enjoyed forum games altogether too much anyway. I wish I could write essays about it, that thing was profound.

It was a thing where members (4 out of a possible of seven) had to approve new forum games, which were painstakingly applied for by new hosts. It was terrible and I have no idea why we let it happen, because it fostered an absurd community of elitism and entitlement, and took me a couple of months to dismantle.
