May I just ask how these "Games" are played? Is it like a sort of RPG? I haven't been on BZPower for very long and I don't exactly know how things work, especially this.

Two questions.  Do they have to be in the "Games and Trivia" forum?  Or can they be anywhere as long as we post the link here?

 

And can they take up multiple threads?  Like have a thread for the actual game and have a seperate thread for people's profiles and stuff like that.

These aren't full-on RPGs, turagajovan. They're pretty much just small, fun games where you just need one post to join. No excessive character setup, just read the rules and jump right in! Hope this was helpful! ;)

Depends on how you want the game to be played, really! There are two basic classifications of G&T games here on BZP. The "Post-After-Me" style and the "sign-up" style. The main difference between the two is how much of a responsibility you have to keep playing. Post-After-Me style games are like Steal The Mask or Bionicle Food Chain Game. These styles of games tend to just need you to post to play, nothing else. As well, these games can pretty much go on forever if they stay on track/

 

The other type is the more Sign-Up style gmaes. These require you to actually post before the game starts to say that "Yes, I will be playing this game." These games tend to have a much shorter lifespan, in general. Examples of the Sign-Up style games are like any Mafia game in the history of ever or Bionifight, with Bionifight being pretty much the closest thing to an RPG we can have in this forum. It is all combat, no extranious story. (well, except for the RPG Bionifight, but that is besides the point.)

 

There are many different ways the games could be run, and I think these examples can give you a pretty good picture of it. If you have any more questions(or if I didn't sufficiently answer this one haha), feel free to ask!

And can they take up multiple threads?  Like have a thread for the actual game and have a seperate thread for people's profiles and stuff like that.

Well, for the first question, I would certainly assume so! This isn't an RPG or a COT contest, so it seems kinda silly for the games to be elsewhere! =P

 

Here is where I have no say at all. Bionifight has always had to keep profiles and the game in the same thread, so I assume that the same would be with what you are concocting right now. I cannot tell you for sure, though. I think that it is likely that it should only have one thread, for profiles at least. Maybe some other format of game with two topics would be okay?

 

I really have no idea. Sorry! *surgh*

Just make sure it isn't actually an RPG! We have a different forum for those. Pretty much, if it is more RPG than Bionifight you'll probably have some troubles. =P

 

I don't see any reason why you couldn't post a little hype teaser here. *surgh*

 

No problem at all! I try to make people's indoctrination into G&T as quick and painless as possible. =P

Here we go, then.  Matoran.  With hoverbikes.  Enough said?  NO!

 

The Falling Stars are a gang of lawless Matoran bikers that live outside of Metru Nui.  Their hoverbikes are based off the designs for Akilini hover-boards, except bigger and badder.

 

Every Star shares one thing in common:  Somehow, each of their homes were ravaged by the Brotherhood of Makuta, and they lost everything they had.  They found themselves on the Star's doorstep and banded together to hunt down and stop the Brotherhood.  When they hear of the Morbuzahk attacking Metru Nui, it sounds just like Makuta and they fly in to investigate.  But not like the last time--when Matoran disappear and the Toa go in to save the day--the Stars are determined to find the victims.  For the first time, they will find the Matoran that supposedly were never to be seen again.  Even if they have to fight through Destral itself to do it.

 

Here come the Falling Stars.

 

 

FEEL THE HYPER!

Hrm, I'd love to participate in this contest but, with hosting Mafia XXII, and all my other school shinnanigans, I don't have the time :(...

I might just have to settle for playing the games that entered rather than submitting one myself.

 

It's nice that G&T contests might be start happening, though

I thought Burn was hosting that one.

 

 

This. lelwut

 

*Snaps fingers*

 

Oh. Um, I guess I kinda thought I had XXII because I was never able to finish my game, and people agreed on that...

(source)

It's fine though, if you are. Maybe I could host the side game or something.

All games entered so far should now be set to close two weeks from the time of their posting.

 

Also, I've added something to the first post - please don't edit any major game rules unless I ask you to (i.e., if a rule breaks one of the contest rules).

Oh I totally plan on entering this, but I do have a question: after entering a game into the contest, am I allowed to do some minor rebalancing? You know, perhaps something costs too little and people are buying too much of it, or maybe a certain item is way too OP; can I fix those? Does that count as changing a "major game rule"?

Adjusting things for balance would be fine.

Originally this was going to have longer rounds (and have more of them). I've changed a couple of game mechanics to make the devious goal achievable within the two-week margin. It's still going to be a challenge for new and old members alike, though. :)

Whoo! Kind of rushed towards the end, but it's finished! Well, I need to go back over it tomorrow to fix the probable gaps and confusion (my brain power is spent now) but otherwise it is finished.

Here we go. My masterpiece of biting satire of reality TV and corporate consumerism, with heavy nihilistic themes and a picture of a dark possible future. As well,  I think it hits the niche between a poster game and a signup game like I was going for, and is fairly literal to the contest theme. (not quite as literal as BIONICLE COUNT TO 1000 but nothing can be that literal)

 

I just hope it actually plays alright. xD

(Sorry for missing the official announcement time last night, but...)

The entry period is now over! There are now two weeks to finish playing any remaining games. After that, look forward to voting on March 31st!

 

I'll leave this open for discussion and such, but entries after this won't count - but feel free to start a game just because; G&T would appreciate it. : P

So, I realize that I already entered the contest.

 

I also understand that the entry period is over.

 

That being said, I have just released Activity Boost!, and it is literally a game where you get points for posting all over BZPower. I'd just like to take a moment and lament the fact that I did not think of this until three days ago. :P
