    Welcome, earthling.

    This is Census and Games new GAMING THREAD. Intrigued?

    The concept is rather simple. Because this is a game of forums; I mean, a forum of games (did I get that right?) we're looking at a way to showcase and involve people in a fun variety of just that: Games!

    Before we go any further: NO gamebans will be given out from this thread. Colours will ALWAYS be given out from this thread.

    You're interested now, aren't you?



    This thread works in conjunction with the Game Suggestions thread. This is the thread that will feature the masses of games on a continuously looping cycle. Please use the Game Suggestions thread for any games that may come to your mind. Even just simple ideas. It is the place to talk about and discuss any game that floats through here, or any game that perhaps could float through here. This thread is to play - that thread is to discuss.

    While the majority of the games that will be found in here will be quick, fun and easy, it doesn't mean that this can't be a testing ground for future games that could last in this forum on their own.

    Even if a game bombs, hey, why not give it a go at least once?

    That can be our motto if you like. I mean, if you had wanted one. You didn't? Oh, sorry. Let's just game.



    I will "host" every game found in this thread. However, if you are the one to come up with the game idea, you may co-host with me. But, for most games that run on simple gears and pulleys, that won't be necessary. Please don't let that hold you back - if games are successful, things can be worked out if you want to do things yourself, I'm sure. The creator of all games found in here will always be credited every time, of course.

    At the other end, though, if you have a flourishing mind of game ideas in your head but are too lazy to go through with them in any host capability; well then, hehe. . . .




    Now let's get to it. I can't inform you now what games we will be playing (as I don't know them all! Go get suggesting, you creative minds!) but the post following this one will be updated with them as we go - so down the line, you may always come back here to refresh your memory of what's already out there. Requests to play a certain game in this thread are always welcome (as we will simply rotate through them at random).

    I will be keeping a notification list for this gaming thread. When I start each game, I will PM anybody on this list informing them that a game has begun. Please post in this thread in colour and bold to indicate that you want to be put on this list. It is no trouble at all to join up. I will then PM you every time a new game starts until I hear from you that you want to be taken off the PM notification list.



    Remember, there's no gamebans. Don't be afraid. And there's definitely colours. Yes, <big>shiny colours</big>.

    GAMING THREAD... COMMENCE.

    <font size=5>Game information:</font>
    <font size=1>Subject to change. Aspects of games may also change each time for added flare, but all alterations will clearly be stated before said game begins. These base rules always apply unless otherwise stated.</font>

    The war between Star War factions have lasted thousands of years. Each side trying to eliminate the other. Now the war has taken place in the form of a game. We call it Battle Royale.





    The objective is to try to eliminate all the players you think are of the opposite side of you by picking a number they hold. The catch is that you do not know who is on your side and who is on the opposing side. There are 36 numbers on the board to choose from. It is a game of chance to find out who will win.


    Game Procedures:

    • Twelve players are allowed to sign up. Once the sign ups are over the host will notify all players what affiliation they are through PM. Players will be chosen to represent factions such as Jedi, Sith, Rebels or Empire. (Three people per faction.) Each player shall not know the affiliation of any other player. In the PM, the host will also give each player a number from 1 to 36.


    • These numbers will be called holocrons - named after the crystal objects that Jedi and Sith use to access certain types of data. Behind each holocron is a name. Twelve of the holocrons will be the players name and affiliation while the rest will be Star Wars characters, creatures or planets.


    • The order of turns will be decided upon simply by the order of sign ups. When it is a player's turn, their objective is to choose a holocron that they think has a player who is on an opposite side. Basically, if you are a Jedi, you want to pick a holocron that might have a player who is a Sith, from the Empire or is a Rebel underneath it. You don't want it to be someone from your own faction. Once all but one faction is eliminated, the remaining player or players are declared the winner.

    Example:

    Holocrons = //1\\ //2\\ //3\\ //4\\ //5\'

    Player A who is secretly a Sith picks holocron 5. The host will then reveal what name is under holocron 5.

    If that name reveals only a Star Wars reference then Player A survives another round and it is the next players turn.

    If the holocron reveals a player who is a Jedi, then Player A, who is a Sith, eliminates the Jedi player and moves on to the next round.

    If the holocron reveals a player who is also a Sith, then Player A is eliminated; however the person of the same faction who was under the holocron survives and takes Player A's original number.

    • Five turns may progress along at maximum before a host update. If somebody who takes a turn gets eliminated from someone beforehand, their turn will then not be counted. Otherwise, it can progress along at, hopefully, a nice speed.


    • The game continues until all factions bar one have been eliminated.


    • Each player will have 12 hours to respond when it is his or her turn. If someone misses a round, they will be simply be skipped. This way, unless players are eliminated, the turn order never changes. You can only be skipped twice. The third time is an automatic elimination.


    • There are 2 - 4 factions that can be played at a time. Usually it will be 4.




    Prizes: The winner or winners will receive VIPship with colours for a day. They will also have a special title. Oooh.


    Rules:

    1. Unless otherwise stated, there will only be twelve sign up positions.


    2. No gamebans are handed out.


    3. You are only allowed to play with one username per game. If it

    These rules are the first incarnation only. Please use the rules in the above post for any future games. -?Tyi

    No sense in waiting. First game up: Battle Royale. Idea and rule base provided by JEDI_TEEGIRLOO and then tweaked by myself as she didn't know about this thread at the time. Let's roll:

    4. No one is allowed to tell another player what faction they are in. No one is allowed to plot with another player for an advantage.

    Wicked cool idea JT! :) Well, seeing as this game has no bans (I'm a wuss...meh), it makes me more apt to try it out! :D

    I want to sign up for this but 12 hours per turn is pushing it. 24 I can do, but 12 is hard, given an 8-hour time difference.

    I'll be watching, though :)

    Exactly. :D

    A few people have mentioned the 12 hour time issue. In here and not. But really, it's only 12 hours from when it becomes your turn. A full round of turns could technically take up to 6 days to go through - although that's extreme and will probably never happen. You are not automatically eliminated if you miss your first go, though, remember. The time is also part of the challenge in this game of luck.

    Still, this is the first game and we'll be doing exactly what Saari said. Tryin' it out dudes.

    I want to start this today. What say you, two more people?

    A couple points to make it easier for everyone before I start.

    All your turn consists of is posting what holocron you would like to open. Be as simple or contrived as you like, just make it clear what number. :p

    The order of turns is as above. After Jensaarai, Kyptastic goes again and so on.

    I will endeavour to update the game after every pick, but if I haven't, don't let that stop you from taking your pick, should you be next in line. The 12 hour clock starts from when the person before you takes their pick - not when I update the game.

    If anyone is bumped (miss their 12 hour window) it is an automatic thing. Once again, you don't need to wait for me if it occurs. After 12 hours the next person may get straight back into it. Just remember that the person bumped is now last; therefore, goes after Jensaarai before we start back at Kypt.

    Got it? It's rather simple, I'm just making sure.

    Let's roll./>

    All holocrons that do not contain a player, contain a random Star Wars Character. Somebody who the average joe wouldn't know about. Very obscure. When I reveal the character, it means nothing, really. Just some fun. With abstract humour, I describe (it's really a comment, now that I think about it) the holocron character in one or two lines.

    Anyway, I'm just warning you.
