AngryTetris: Can we skip Kelvin in 993?
tk993: How often do games normally start?
tk993: Never played this game before.
tk993: Looks interesting.
Toby: it's probably easier if you ask some people to play, try the 18xx slack
tk993: I joined AngryTetris' game. Looks like moves only happen a few times a day. So I'll just keep checking to see if the game launches.
AngryTetris: it may take a while to fill up.i'll start it when it's full. but if people are in too many games they usually won't join others. i'm in 3 and that's kind of pushing it for me.
Toby: you'll get an email when it is your turn
AngryTetris: need 2 more in 1018!
oddman: Sure, I'll play.
Venser: Before starting 1018, I'm away for 11 days at the start of January. I'll duck out if that will be a problem.
oddman: Same here, though I do expect to have access to internet.
AngryTetris: It's fine, it's a pbem game. just let us know when you're gone. :) ty for the heads up!
AngryTetris: tk993, your turn in 1018!
gmngsprvsr: slow around here? that normal?
Venser: I'd jump into games but I'm leaving for two weeks at the end of the month.
gmngsprvsr: @AngryTetris 1021 is ready to start
AngryTetris: Thanks! didn't see the little ... at the end :)
SteephieWonder: Hey guys! I'm new to this site but I know the game. Anything I should know?
SteephieWonder: Also Game 1024 is full and can start
AngryTetris: Hiya! If you know the game you're already halfway there! If you have questions feel free to ask.
SteephieWonder: The creator of the game needs to start the game I guess? It seems like gmngsprvsr hasn't been around for at least three days
SteephieWonder: Also a rules question: can you only buy one company per auction round or as many as you can afford?
Raymond: as many as you can afford
SteephieWonder: gmngsprvsr: we're waiting on you to start Game 1024
gmngsprvsr: @SteephieWonder started thanks
SteephieWonder: Should I wait until 5 players before starting Game 1026 or is it fine to start with 3 or 4 players as well?
gmngsprvsr: you can start with however many you like. looks slow atm, your game has been open a week
SteephieWonder: Okay I started it!
SteephieWonder: Gmngsprvsr game 1027 is full
Musan: I'll keep game 1032 open for 1 more day or when we get a 4th, whatever comes first
egg_salad: Is there a way to delete games, or do I need to request it?
Toby: you can only delete games that haven't been started yet
Jythier: 2.1 scares me.
Toby: it's gentler, you can send sell your company into receivership
Toby: long time no see @Jythier
AngryTetris: 2.1 seems like it will be much more friendly for face to face play.
Jythier: That's what scares me. I like v1.0, always thought it was perfect how it was.
AngryTetris: the counting net worth is a bit cumbersome. counting stars will smooth the process out. also, the variable company powers seems to fit with a lot of modern games.
Jythier: I'm glad people are still playing here though. It's a great game.
DanielB: nothing scary about 2.1...of course, there is always unpleasantries in games of the XX sort
Jythier: I'm getting my butt kicked but I still love this game. :P
Jythier: How does the rollback button work? I pressed it to roll back to Dirk's bid in game 1037 but it didn't do that...
Toby: it rollbacks one thing at a time
Toby: so you have to hit it many times
Jythier: But that was the last thing and it's still saying it's my turn.
Jythier: Rolled back. Thanks.
AngryTetris: If there was a comment someone typed, that's one action, so it would have rolled back the comment maybe?
Jythier: That's weird.
Jythier: But yeah, that was it, and then I kept commenting about how it wasn't working, lol
AngryTetris: rollback comment, comment on how it's not working, roll back comment, comment on how it's not working... bang head on desk
