  1. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    Last night, Buzzfloyd and I played a board game based on the works of H P Lovecraft. The game was called Arkham Horror, I believe, and mighty Cthulu showed up more than once!

    It occurs to me that there are a number of great classic games that often get unofficial computer versions produced for playing online. There's also knock-offs and official games that are hosted on major websites.

    Yahoo! has a version of scrabble called Literati. has actual bonafide Monopoly.

    I think we should expand our gameplay group a bit. if any of us can figure out how to play, we might even want to throw together a weekly bridge game.

    This is just an idea for rigth now, but if anyone would like to make suggestions, please do.

    More importantly, if anyone has or knows of any good/cool internet friendly versions of funky board games or similar, suggest them!

    I'd be up for a bridge game (and any other card game and most other games for that matter). I'm not that good, though.

    Edit: little mistake that sneaks in and ruins my day (well two minutes of it)

    Would there be anyway we could play the Pirate game whilst online Clay. I miss kicking all your ass's at it, especially Rinso's. And even Doors feet couldn't destroy that game. :)

    In your dreams kenny, you pirate loser.

    There is, to my knowledge, no computer version of the Pirates of the Spanish Main card game yet.

    There are a few games of a similar theme, if not a similar nature. Might be worth checking out.

    If someone wanted to check the Underdogs website for any interesting looking [b:2ec910395c]freeware[/b:2ec910395c] multiplayer games, I'm sure something could be found.

    Yay, found a thread where this would fit.

    "Casey and Andy"'s creator made this nifty piece of software:


    Might be interesting for your Online RP-Group?

    Been testing it out, and have had nothing but headaches. the program seems functional, but no one can connect to me when I host.

    that's probably not a good sign :cry:
  8. Garner Great God and Founding Father

    okay, i may not be able to host, but i can join. we shall experiment more tomorrow.

    I cannot participate tomorrow, as I will be travelling back to the village :(
