Screw it count me in.

Gov and ethic have to have somebody to crap on!  Oh and yell at me when it is my turn.  I suck at keeping that stuff straight.

I have no idea how to play but I'm going to own you all
:woot: (P.S. If you'd like a "quick" synopsis of how to play, read the red parts in the second post or just tell me to explain it quickly in a new one.)

yah, I'm in. But I'll be slow with my responses :(
No worries at all. Just post them when you can.

Ober games?  How current do these need to be?  ;)

:D Not to tip my hand, but 90% of the games I'm considering picking were from before this millennium.

Oh and yell at me when it is my turn.  I suck at keeping that stuff straight. 
:woot: No worries, I can send you a PM when I see it's your turn to hopefully make it clearer.

Same goes for anybody else who would like that service. Since we're getting a nice turnout, it might get a wee bit confusing. If you're not sure just ask.

And of course, we have some newbies who haven't done this before, so if you have questions on the structure just ask.

Coolio, we have interest. Today is Friday and I won't be online much this weekend, so we'll probably start Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

If anybody has input on how to distinguish between similar games I'd love to hear it. Should Madded NFL 08 and Madden NFL 09 be separate games? What about Starcraft and Starcraft: Brood War?

Also, ober, I think we can decrease this to 8 or 10 rounds, especially since we have at least 9 participants. Anybody else have a preference?

Brood War is an expansion for Starcraft, so I don't think that should count.  Madden 08 and 09 are basically the same game, but I wouldn't consider Madden 97 and 11 the same game.

That's what I was thinking, too. Can you think of a hard and fast rule that's easy to describe to distinguish between the Maddens?

Maybe more than 4 years apart unless there's a definite leap between a couple?

Yeah, I guess something like that's not a bad idea. I wish I knew more about the games so I could judge better what a "leap" is, but we can figure it out.

Generally it's only when they make the move from one generation of a console to the next.

That would be a good way to break things up.


P.S. Anybody else click on the "new post" button and have it direct you to the rules or placeholder posts at the top whenever I edit the one above? That's annoying, the board wasn't doing that before.

I would push for 8 rounds personally.

As far as rules between versions, I think it's going to vary by genre.  Games that are 'yearly' probably should follow the '4 year' rule, roughly.  But other games like Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 2 are COMPLETELY different, as are most of the COD games.

That seems accurate to me
