Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The featured games at PAX are all outstanding and are certain to be loads of fun, but I'm also certain that I'm not alone in being disappointed that a favorite game missed the cut.
Thus, might I humbly suggest ShadowPAX? Let's arrange some ad-hoc tournaments for any insomniacs willing to play from midnight to 10 AM. Who knows if space or systems will be available? The worst we can do is organize it and let the chips fall where they may.
The first question at hand would be: is anyone interested?
If you've got an overlooked favorite, please post here. Preferred rules/maps/mods, please.
For instance, here's what I'm shooting for: Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory: 4-on-4, stopwatch mode. Single map elimination, FF on. Bloodbowl(the board game): 3rd edition rules w/ Deathzone. Only teams in core rules and DZ allowed.
and I can't resist Nethack: version 3.4.3. No bones files. Choose your own class, play until dead or forced-quit at 8:00 AM. High score wins. Honorable mention for most colorful death.
