Default How to Organize a game on the Dom3Minions Server

The Dom3 Minions server supports direct-connect dominions games. They are probably the simplest to get into. At the Dom menu simply choose Network, then Connect to a Dominions Server, enter the servers address (in this case game.dom3minions.com) and then the port number that the game is running on. After that it is like playing solo, but with multiple players. You do not need the map (the server will send it to you if it sees you dont have it). And you do not need to figure out how to email your turns in and out of the game.

Short Answer:
I maintain a variety of popular game-types open at all times. At this time it includes simple blitz (2-4 players on a medium map), and players against computer players (1-4 players and 3 allied AIs on a small map), or a small fast game (1-4 on medium map) using the CBM mod with Worthy Heroes mod, and the ever popular chaos games for people who love surprises.

Join a game and wait for others to join.

Longer Answer:
Start a game.
1) Select one of the open games that interests you.
http://www.Dom3Minions.com/HostedGames.htm
or design your own from scratch.
2) Use the "New Thread" button on this forum to begin a conversation.
3) Describe the game and provide basic information
4) Wait for others to say they will join
As the person who started the thread you will be considered to be the person running the game. You will have final say, and be expected to contact the host for things such as pausing the timer or turning a player to AI who fails to play their turns.
