Potential Tourney (in Contests)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 16 2011 12:06 AM EDT

This is a feeler thread only. I can potentially run a tourney based on the board game Attack, including the expansion, which I own. This game is a WW2 based board game. It would run for up to a few weeks depending on how it goes throughout. Mainly I just want to know how many people think they would be interested in participating in such a tourney. The goal of this tourney in terms of game play and feel would be to have it be something like the old Hellenic wars tourney if you all remember what that was like. But I don't want to do it unless I can get a fair number of teams with enough people on each team. This would be up to 6 teams and no limit on the size as long as they are equalized.

Please give me your feedback. ^_^

I know im relatively new, but if this is anything like a "risk" type game i would definitely be down.

this thread feels silky

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 16 2011 12:09 AM EDT

It would be a good bit more involved than just risk. Its a little similar to axis and allies, if you have ever played that. But a lot more freestyle, with of course my modifications to make it work in a CB tourney format.

And to those of you who really want to play evangelize, err, recruit more people into playing in the tourney. ^_^

These are the kind of tourneys I love. :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] June 16 2011 12:43 AM EDT

I'm down for all tourneys

Couple of years ago told Slayer to run a tourney based on the board game Stop Thief! Make it so.

ScrObot June 16 2011 4:01 AM EDT

I'm always interested in these type of tournaments! Hopefully we can get a decent turnout with people actually sticking around; I know we've had issues in the past few team tournaments with that (the US vs. Russia one and the chess one come to mind).

Let's rally, people! (=

Eh I probably wouldn't play. To many times where you start a team tourney and then one of your team mates have RL issues come up or just loose interest into it or w/e and then quit. Then you just lose simply because of the lack of players on your team.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] June 16 2011 9:59 AM EDT

Quyen June 16 2011 10:26 AM EDT

Looks like we have 9 players right now? Gun are you in the tourney or nay. I'd really like it if we have at least 12 players and 18+ would be ideal.

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 4:54 PM EDT

If 18 sign up for the tourney and see it through, I'll up the ante and kick in additional winnings from my own stash.

Guardian June 22 2011 6:13 PM EDT

i dont't understand how will it be but i am in.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 26 2011 2:57 AM EDT

only 10 so far.

horseguy001 [Blender 2021] June 26 2011 2:20 PM EDT

I'd like to join but with it being a team tourney I'm pretty sure I won't have the time to see it through. Wouldn't want to bring my team down.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 27 2011 5:29 PM EDT

No more takers?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 27 2011 5:49 PM EDT

since it is kind of a long-term commitment, perhaps giving potential players some kind of idea of the daily time commitment might help recruitment efforts.

Fishead July 1 2011 1:34 PM EDT

I'll sign up, but put me on a team that doesn't mind if I'm a little flakey.

Quyen July 1 2011 3:35 PM EDT

thats 11.. ima try to see why Z dont joins :)

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] July 1 2011 4:05 PM EDT

Possible start time, it's very important for me. After the 6th and I am in.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 1 2011 4:17 PM EDT

That's fine. I still have to hammer out the details for this game. It's pretty complicated. We do have enough players now so I will be running it. Expect the Post on the rules and such soon as well as a start date. It will run as long as necessary to complete.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] July 1 2011 4:29 PM EDT

After this, do an Axis and Allies one, now that's complicated.... but helluva good time. (How is helluva in the dictionary?)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 1 2011 5:47 PM EDT

This is going to be quite similar to axis and allies.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 1 2011 5:56 PM EDT

Never played either to be honest but my curiosity may be piqued ;-)

ScrObot July 1 2011 8:54 PM EDT

FYI I'll be MIA July 7th-20th so I may be out if it's during those dates. \=
