Find me a game!!!! (in Contests)
February 26 2006 2:14 PM EST
I am looking for an online text based game. It cannot be have downloading or disks involved. Also it should not require constant supervision (I cant log on every two hours and if I cant compete without doing that I dont want to hear about it). Whoever gives me the best game gets 50k. If I end up playing more then one game I will give 50k to the donors of both games. The games Carnageblender2 and DarkThrone are taken so please do not post them. If there are any questions post here PM or CM me :).
thanks very much for your help everyone.

Vampires, The Dark Alleyway
- kind of a dull game really, but you start off with one action point every 30 minutes, so it doesn't take much time to play.

good strategy game....hard to be good at...good for time too...turn based and much of fun
check it out
February 26 2006 2:41 PM EST
oh and of course it must be free. Not part time but permanently free.
-You can play as either a human or a zombie. I've just started and it seems pretty cool so far.

Torn City- Crime Based, level your character by training in the gym, committing crimes, and attacking other players. And more.
Renaissance Kingdoms-(Literally takes 15 minutes a day to play. Kinda hard to grasp but once yout is pretty easy.) Create a character and through interaction with the community and world around you can level him/her up through the rankings and choose his/her path in life.

(Only works with Internet Explorer.)
The first one is slow-paced, logging on once or twice a day is enough.

Bart, I thought the "no referrals" rule was meant to stop people from making threads with the explicit purpose of getting people to click their referral links. In this case, a link with a referral should be just as good as one without...

Players move around on a grid of tiles, drinking blood from other vampires and humans to progress. There are quests, guilds, as much or little interaction as you want, no cost, and not much time required to play.

vampires! is at http://quiz.ravenblack.net/blood.pl?biter=mikal
February 27 2006 8:24 AM EST
Or you could get to Vampires through a much smaller link below. :P
February 27 2006 8:37 AM EST
yeah, but then i'd lose credit for the referral... so :P I just couldn't get the html tag work to make a link..
February 27 2006 4:51 PM EST
Due to the amount of recommendations it will take me a few days to play them all. But I want to thank everyone for posting who already has :).

I know you said no downloads, but if you have G Mud or Z Mud or any MUD client, try www.Unwritten.net
Unwritten Legends... VERY DEEP and SERIOUSLY ROLEPLAYING Text Based Fantasy MUD... Best one I've ever played... If you are serious about a MUD, it should be this one.

http://www.the-reincarnation.com/ Not sure if you are still looking, but this is might be your cup o tea
March 7 2006 12:31 AM EST
www.nukezone.nu is very nice :)
March 7 2006 12:31 AM EST
I totally forgot about this thread. Has he even had time to play them all and state the "winner"?
March 7 2006 12:33 AM EST
Only if people let the thread die. :P
March 7 2006 4:06 PM EST
No I have not. I am still going through and no offense but I like very few and have stuck with none. I will probably just randomly picks who wins. Sorry everyone my taste in games is very limited I guess. Also the more in depth games did not get played long because I simply cannot try to play everyone one of them. I will announce it within the week
March 7 2006 6:30 PM EST
I do not no if this was already suggested but
did we forget about this thread again?
March 13 2006 6:57 PM EST
I hope not I am still trying them out. I hope I wont need too much longer.
Remember L.O.R.D. (Legend of the Red Dragon)? It's back..
Days last for 12 hours real time, so it's easy to keep pace with normal life. It's extremely expansive, pays much homage to the original, very well done meshing with the browser (plenty of hotkeys, so you don't need to click everywhere), tons of secrets. Very nice overall.
You can play Nethack online. Many people consider it the ultimate text game.
You can play in your browser (requires Java): http://alt.org/nethack/jta/
Or using telnet: telnet://nethack.alt.org
You can even watch other people's games if you want.
- Turn-based games allow for days or weeks between moves
- Text based
- Fendishly difficult puzzles
- Much variety *evil grin*
at what point do people stop sending in entries? you said like a week ago you'd have the winner within the week but people keep sending entries and nuffins been posted on how long it will take yet or anything...

Try Evernight! It's a MMPOG that's easy to learn but hard to master.
It's not text based but turns are scheduled every 24 hours so you can log in anytime to make your moves. Games are scheduled for M-F, 7days or weekends, depending on what your schedule is. You just play the games that suit your schedule.

One of my personal favorites has been Aardwolf mud
It's very easy to get into and the people are very helpful, in addition the site links to fan sites that are very good at helping out people who are just starting off.
wow MUDding. I haven't done that since I used to sneak into the university vt100 labs. Good times.

On CB we have a little over 5300 registered users with about 500 people logging in during a given week. And not all of those people are actively fighting or forging.

A game I've been playing for a couple of weeks is Legend Arena. Its pretty simple game really. You get 1 turn (stamina is what they're called) every 20mins and you start out being able to hold max of 150 turns and you could either increase or leave it as is, however you want it. So its about 70turns a day you'll get so only need to log on about once a day (which is recommended if you join a clan and try to gain WPs - find out about these ingame too lazy to explain =P).
URL is www.legendarena.com (sry dont know how to do linking =P)
March 20 2006 5:11 PM EST
Don't think this is exactly what you want but you should check out wild.fiends.com or Dragon Court. Fun, fun game. :)
