Close your eyes if you value your sanity

Postby super_dipsy » 09 Mar 2019, 08:00

OK, so April Fools Day is approaching fast :) . It has become something of a tradition at Playdip that for anyone crazy enough to do so, we will have some Shift games. For those of you who are blissfully unaware of this lunacy, in shift games the countries have the same build centres but they don't own any of them...because they start in someone else's country and own those build centres...but can't use them...so they have to get home before they can build anything...without getting killed off first...while other countries are trying to come the other way...oh

All I am doing at the moment is getting a feel for how many I need to start, deadlines etc.. And what types . We need to have at least one vanilla one that non-premiums can join, but beyond that I wonder whether maybe a Fog one might be even more :shock: . And I sort of feel they should all have Stuff turned on...and maybe try one on a different map like maybe 1900?

OK, for all those lost in the depths of insanity, please post preferences ie deadlines, full comms, PPO, Fog, map etc.. But for all those more sensible players, if you close your eyes for a moment and count to 10 I'm sure this will all go away and you can put it down to a bad dream.

PS. I don't suppose Trump is still newsworthy? I seem to remember the PPO April Fools 'Talk like Trump' Shift game a few years back..

But, I nearly forgot, you must close your eyes otherwise you won't see anything

I would like to request a prehistoric shift game containing fog and populated by dinos and sharks. No private communications allowed, you must shout through the primeval vapors to be heard.

I am certifiably insane so I feel well qualified for this tournament.

If I had my druthers (I don’t, so whoever took them should bring them back, you druther-thief!), I’d go for Versailles or 1900, fog of war, public press only, stuff happens.

And Dinos and Megas. Because....Dinos.
