Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
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!

    Sign-ups are ongoing for the Wiz-War Tournament featuring The Pit

    Game assignments will be made on the 19th and games will start on the 20th.

    Right now we have a minimum of 3 games in the first round. Once this starts, should I make a thread for each game, or try to keep it all in one thread?

    SWTOR Main - Novah (Shadowlands)
    Xbox Live - ObiFett (Destiny / Neverwinter / Smite)
    Other Games - Hearthstone / Heroes of the Storm / Diablo 3 / Endless Legend

    Probably no issue with having a different thread for each game. Might be confusing if you put them all in the same thread, especially if they're running concurrently.

    And I keep forgetting to mention that Game 66 of Chaos in the Old World has begun, with:

    doldari as Tzeentch
    Salvation122 as Slaanesh

    That's what I was thinking. Didn't know if I would be cluttering up the forum, though.

    That's what this forum is for; don't worry about potentially cluttering it up.

    For your own sanity, though, you might not want to run more than a couple of the games at a time. Unless you decide to do things through handtracker where we can draw our own cards as needed.

    I think you underestimate the amount of free time (at work and home) that I have to do this. 3-4 games of Wiz-War at a time will be a piece of cake. For me, all I have to do is update the map and deal out new cards. And if I have time I really want to do a witty write-up explanation of what happens each turn.

    Having read the rules, handtracker is a bit more complex for Wiz War, as well. You'd need a different deck for each game, essentially, depending on which cards they decide to use.
    (Though I guess you could make a mega deck, label the cards by type and instruct players to just discard everything that shouldn't be in play.)

    Moved a bunch of stuff (letter R-Z) into the second post, giving me enough room to fully update the list for CitOW, BSG, and Wiz War.

  • blahmcblahblahmcblah President Klepto In your Quorum, stealing your pensRegistered User regular
    As long as you're updating stuff...

    BSG Exodus 9 was also a victory for the Cylon Leader. Dungeon Lords Game 2 is ongoing (although not for much longer), and CitOW 55 ended in a Khorne victory. Also, why does CitOW 64 have an asterisk? 66 is the first with a Bloodletter nerf (67 is sorta nerfed and 68 probably will be).

    Cards Against Humanity is a game that is kind of like Apples to Apples, only you're figuring out whether "being on fire" or "getting so angry that you pop a boner" is the funniest fit for the card "War! What is it good for?"

    Sign ups are open until I decide they're closed.

    Just link the thread as an announcement. Chaos is the only game that is run at all formally, and even for it you can certainly run games outside our regular structure if you want to.

    Damn, I'm Jonsing real bad for a game of REX, and I've never played before! Will bear child of whoever can host a 2nd game.

  • StyyxStyyx Registered User regular
    I've noticed that, while A Game of Thrones has been played on this board before, there hasn't been a single person who's attempted to host a second edition game.

    How difficult would it be for a first time hoster to set this up?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    I can't even find any previous games of Game of Thrones here. Searching for it just brings up mentions in this thread.

    Any links to that or the online app? I'd even be up for hosting a game myself.

    So I'm looking to host a GoT 2nd edition game, and I have all the materials except some of the decks aren't in hand tracker but I could easily input them in a new template.

    What's the proper protocol to making a template public? Can anyone just do it with decks they input?

  • stever777stever777 AFK most Saturdays Registered User regular
    Yes, sir.
    When you create a new one, there's a click for public or not.

    Also, someone created Game of Thrones - Deck I, II & III on Hand Tracker.
    Not sure if they're 2ed or not, or if there's even a difference.

    Good luck on the run, MrB!

  • jakobaggerjakobagger Copenhagen dreamingRegistered User regular
    There are significant differences between the Westeros decks of the two editions. The house cards are almost entirely different. The Westeros decks on Handtracker right now are the old versions.

    Okay. So I just type them in and make them public? Was just wondering if there was some rule to keep just anyone from wondering in and spamming decks.

    If not I'll get started on that tonight and start gathering image resources. I figure just go with simple photoshop for the board updates.

    If I'm reading those old GoT games right, the host was also playing via password protected order files? Is that still an option because I'd sure love to play too and it's not like there's a bunch of other GoT hosts to wait for another game.
