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: Weird.
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
gmngsprvsr: @DanielB ready to start
DanielB: Angry Tetris. It’s a new way to develop repetitive stress
AngryTetris: I have a job, I get enough of that XD
Venser: I joined 1044 quicker games, but it looks like it was started because 1042 is stagnant. I can give myself the boot if need be.
Venser: I'm still involved in games that were started over a year ago. I'd love to finish one.
Siddharth Venkatesh: You can take my "spot" Chris, I don't have the bandwidth for more games and 1042 is moving again it seems.
DanielB: Venser, let's get to 4p then we can start '44
Toby: i pinged amos
DanielB: Talb. Toby. You both want in to ‘44?
DanielB: Shall we do 6 with Venser or 5? Or a 4 and make ‘45 our replacement game? Or start a ‘45
Toby: make a 45
Toby: daniel, game 45 is only 5 player max, it needs to be 6 player
Toby: i made 1046
Venser: Thanks Siddharth. This is the only game I can access at work so I don't mind having a handful on the go.
DanielB: didn't know it needed to be 6, I made 45 and joined 46, I'm in zero other online games so fine with whatever others decide... thansk, let's RS!
Venser: Just let me know where I'm welcome. It's been too long since I last finished a game of RS. I've been involved in four other games that have lasted over a year each due to stagnation.
Toby: you're welcome @venser in '46
Toby: waiting for musan in 1046
KLT1963: Venser, the reason I started a 3 player game is twofold: 1) I just learned the game, and 2) I wanted to finish it quickly.
Toby: let me know if you want me to delete 144
Toby: 1044
DanielB: Toby. Please delete ‘44 and I suppose ‘42
Toby: when i get home tonight
Jythier: Wow Venser, that stinks that none of your games finish.
Venser: Just taking at quick look, I have three that are longer than eight months so far.
Jythier: Daniel, ar emy turns fast enough for game 1050? :)
Jythier: 1037 is almost over.
Jythier: I did have a weekend away last weekend but that doesn't happen often, and usually I have internet wherever I am. Not this time.
DanielB: Sure thing Jythier, let's do it
DanielB: Looking for an experienced 4th who wants to play fast in new game 1050
Jythier: i'll try to make less mistakes this time. ;)
DanielB: Jythier. What’s your background in 18xx?? Other gaming?
Jythier: Not much 18xx. 1830 the computer game, and one Rails game online, nothing in person. I love economic games like Captains of Industry, Master of Economy, Indonesia, Food Chain Magnate, Arkwright... I love production, supply and demand, and especially players buying from players. Oh, and Container of course.
Jythier: I would really like to see something very much like City of the Big Shoulders but combined with a player-driven supply and demand, but I don't know how much game there would be.
Jythier: I played Rolling Stock on this site when it first started and prior to that we played on Google Sheets on Board Game Geek.
Jythier: Okay, looking back, I played in Game 1 on this site. :P
Siddharth Venkatesh: You should play The Great Zimbabwe if you haven't. Player driven supply and demand is a big part of that game.
gmngsprvsr: is it good? I saw it on
Siddharth Venkatesh: It's a top 5 game for me.
Siddharth Venkatesh: Indonesia and Zimbabwe are my favorite economic games that aren't 18xx.
Venser: The Great Zimbabwe is one of my favourite games as well.
Venser: It's one of four games I've ranked 10 on BGG.
Jythier: Zimbabwe is on the list, it's really any Splotter but Bus is up my alley.
Jythier: Greed Inc.
Jythier: Haven't played them but I want to.
DanielB: Bus??
Jythier: That's a splotter, right?
AngryTetris: one of the older ones (1999)
Siddharth Venkatesh: I like Bus a lot too.
Jythier: Another one I found online. Didn't understand it as well as I wanted to.
Siddharth Venkatesh: It's a great 3p game. I can see it being irritating to learn async.
Toby: just played indonesia for the first time. really enjoyed it
Siddharth Venkatesh: Indonesia is great, we should play on slothninja.
AngryTetris: the mergers in that game can be brutal. in our first game, we had a player decide to get lvl2 merge and cram everything together. it was a wild mess
AngryTetris: we had no idea what the consequences of his actions were. our second game felt a little better once we kind of had our heads wrapped around what things meant/did
Jythier: Love Indonesia! Yeah merging is crazy. :D
DanielB: Indonesia is fantastic!
DanielB: Sid, can you invite me to indonesia on slothninja
Jythier: I'm on Slothninja too. :D
DanielB: great, now need to figure out how to get into a game, seems there's a p w to join?
Toby: i can’t stand a sync play, well play live one of these days, i just read your article, seems like you’re pretty hardcore
DanielB: what article?
DanielB: Oh, Sid's article - i'll take a look :), i'm certainly hardcore, just a question of when and where!
Siddharth Venkatesh: I have played a lot of Indonesia yes. I know a few people who've played more I think. Jbrier if you know him (he's good at basically every game and plays a ton). Grayson Page also has a group in Virginia where they regularly play 3p.
Siddharth Venkatesh: I'm already rethinking some of the stuff I wrote in that article. Nothing major enough to warrant an edit yet but some of it (the R&D stuff especially) may not be deep enough.
DanielB: Who wants to join a fast game? 1053...we're ready to start...
DanielB: Our last game ran about 8-10 days
AngryTetris: can we skip tk993 in 1018? it's been about a month.
Toby: ok
Toby: i've autopassed tk and SteephieWonder
AngryTetris: I'll be out of town this weekend for UnPub, I may be slow to move in 1021 and 1018. I'll make moves on monday for sure though.
