    PTBS Team War

    Anybody interested in a bit faster of a PTBS game, BtS probably, with quick settings and a large team format (something like 4x4 or 3x3x3 or something to that extent)? Basically something to let our warlike instincts push forward without any fear of diplomatic 'repercussions'


    Settings would be:
    Team Battleground or Great Plains or something like that (flat, no wrap, no islands)
    Smallish land for the player count (not too small, but say small for 6 players, normal for 8 players, large for 12 players, etc.)
    Quick speed
    Always War
    24 hour turn timer

    Anything else would be up for debate of course, like random events (probably off?) etc.

    Any takers? Any teams? We can have random teams, or preset ones, or gametime randomized teams.

    This would also by the way be expected to include some pretty, erm, aggressive talk remeniscent of Balderdash games in the past Nobody's allowed to take anything personally, rule #1...

    Non-PTBSers are invited also by the way ... I remember a lot of PBEMers of old who are still here who would be happily invited to this game

    Anyone else interested? We need more than four

    Maka, if anyone you know from old PBEMs wants to join in they're more than welcome

    You guys dont want me to play anyway, I dont do 24 hour timers. I can't be tied to playing CIV every single day, it just doesn't work that way for me anymore.

    A team game would be interesting. Not sure the quick and warlike part of it, personally I would prefer more options, but if this is final that's OK, I'll join in

    Sounds like we have 7:

    Snoopy369
    Makahlua
    Hercules
    Beta
    Ptzvetan
    Keygen
    Wittlich

    We need one more, and then we can start (a 4v4). Anyone have any ideas?

    How about 4 teams of 2 players each?

    It would add more competition

    Damn - a spy!!!!



    Provi said no thanks. He does not have BTS.

    That leaves geo.

    Anyone have other ideas?

    A lot of folks from the otther half of the world - Nugog, Rob W, FeMme - but that may make communication with a team mate a bit tough if you are North American and live standard hours.

    Also, what about con? He might be up for this.

    2 teams of 4 is the idea, not 4 teams of 2 3x3x3 would be okay also if we get 9, but the point is large team battle. It ends up much more military in scope, and we already have a 2 player team game

    Well, feel free to start your own two player team game I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the action (and comedy) of a two team 4 player per team game.

    fed if you're joining we have 8. Any suggestions on teams? There is definitely some spread in ability in this group, so some part of me feels chosen teams would be a good idea. We could either do a 'draft' if nobody minds being the last drafted, or else someone neutral (Dominae perhaps, or masterdave, someone who knows a lot of us) could assign teams.

    Yep - it was your idea snoop. So lets go with the two teams of 4 as you planned. Research and war should be quick and nasty.
