Default Game listing and MP guide(updated on Feb 24)

This thread is intended to provide a listing of games looking for a relacing player (either temporary or permanently) and players waiting for a new game to be created.

If you are new to the world of multiplayer games, the guide available here might be of use to you.

The thread for comments/additions is available here. This is the preferred place to post anything related to the listing, and it ensures I will be able to read your post (unlike mails which might get lost).

Default Game looking for players (updated on Feb 24)

* New games:

- The Blitz games, hosted on IRC.
- Method of hosting: TCP/IP for the blitz itself.
- Description: these games are started on the weekends, and are always looking for new players. The actual blitz means getting as many turns in as possible, before switching to a more common turnaround. More information can be found in the game thread.

- The Shephreds of Creation scenarios
- Method of hosting: TCP/IP for now, though a PBEM game can be hosted if enough players (seven) are interested.
- Description: these games use an Illwinter made scenario, available here. Seven human players fight against a powerful AI, but only one can win. The special features of the map are kept a secret, but Kristoffer said there were a lot of scripted provinces for sites, population or both.

* Games already started, and looking for a replacing player:

- Yarnspinners , hosted by Alneyan
- Method of hosting: PBEM; the mail address is alneyan[AT]fastmail[DOT]co.uk
- Turnaround of the game: Twice a week
- Map: Cradle
- Description: This is a fairly slow game, especially intended for writers, though writing is not mandatory. The victory condition is based on points: some of them will be awarded to the leading nations in the graphs, and the rest is given when submitting yarns. The current turn is 34, and the game will end at turn 60.
- Nations available: Abysia and Caelum are looking for another player. Caelum is currently fighting Ermor, and Abysia may be close to war with R'lyeh. Of the two, Caelum seems to be in the better shape, at least according to the scores.

I'm confused. I'm looking for a new PBEM game, but this board seems dead. I seem to recall making a post here recently, but it either was deleted, or I never actually posted what I intended to. If someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

there don't seem to be any games opening up currently, I think the impending dom 3 might be effecting it. you could always try to organize one yourself.

I'm willing to play in a new PBEM game if anyone's willing to host. I think there are some new players who might be interested as well =).

I'd be willing to host a PBEM game as we wait for Dom III.

Yay, yay. I tried to get 3 of my friends to get this game too, but one of them just lost his job :-(, the other is a college student anyway (broke as a spoke), and the third said the game worked fine once, but then crashed on subsequent attempts to play it.

EDIT: I just noticed the new thread, which answers my question. Sweet deal!
