It's been over a year since we've had an ATS sponsored game.

I'm not complaining, but rather asking whether games will be a part of this great site moving forward.

I already tried posting this topic once and got this for a reply... not sure why.




I really do think ATS sponsored games provide great value to the site and the collaborative element of the membership.

I would think that there would be some creative folks on the staff that could conjure up a game now and then. If not, well it should just be announced that games are dead

The master of life is now among us, bow before his greatness.

So you like games eh?

Any good at chess?



3 of 7 now.... One calling, one running, one threatening to kill. No more time for games, send it.

Please do not bow, Walkswithfish. I'm rather shy


Anyway, I fear my OP has lost track. This is about getting a new ATS game going... or not.

Not sure how to respond, Zarn...

I'm in agreement that intriguing, well-thought out games stimulate our curiosity and our mental awareness. There have been some great ones here at ATS - and some not so great...

One thing I do is now look over the games v-e-r-y carefully before jumping in. There are games I've spent way, way too much time and energy on only to have the mods simply abandon the game and not reward any promised prizes (for example the banner game. Check it out...). What a disappointment that was! :bnghd: Some outstanding creative contributions fizzled to nothing despite many assurances from the Amigos that the gamesters have not been forgotten. Well - after a year or so, we certainly begin to feel forgotten.

Another problem has been that many ATS enthusiasts love to participate in the games but simply have "other lives" to maintain - work, family, etc., and just can't stay logged on and paying exclusive attention to the game 24/7. What that means is that while you're logged off another crucial piece of the puzzle is solved, some prize awarded, and the game moves on without you - I've seen this happen in a few short hours or even minutes in some cases - very frustrating. You go to sleep, have dinner, come back - and someone has used your hints and progress along with others and solved it under your nose!
Happens, I guess...

The games are fun - they're worthwhile - they're entertaining and often educational. BTW, one of my all-time favorites was the ATS What Is The Conspiracy Game!. That was pure Genius...


Yet - some inconsistencies, administration snafus, abandonment, etc., have some of us having reduced expectations from the games. It sure would be nice to have a mod pick up the ball. be dedicated, and create a well-managed, intuitive game for us to wrap our heads around. But this takes work, commitment, follow-through, and a strong sense of fair play. that's a tall order to ask of part-time volunteers. Not impossible (ATS has already done it in the past), but difficult and time consuming...

We're waiting...

Yes yes yes, let's have more games


The "What is the Conspiracy?" game is what hooked me on ATS to begin with, as well as being my first encounter with my now-fiance. ATS games rock my world

Was just going to post a thread and caught yours Zarin. I know SO is very busy with the redesign and I think he is the "GameMaster" of ATS. Many of the games that I have been involved with, starting with "the rings" which is what got me to join, have been unbelievable.

The intricacies and coding, etc. must have been so time consuming.

If you happen across this thread "fully laden african swallow" will you update us for any upcoming games or plans of any?

Maybe along with "writer, fighter, scholar" there can be a "gamer" category for volunteers willing to get some games going.

Just an idea. Miss your games SO!

Issue challenge. Web-Link two completely unrelated conspiracies.

Rules:

1. You must start on a conspiracy page that is DEVOTED to a specific comspiracy. Forums are not allowed. (Though ATS forums are a great place to find information on them...)

2. You get ONE POINT for completing the task, no matter how many pages you have to click. If you can do it in three clicks, you get 1 point. If you can do it in four, you get two points. If you can do it in 5, you get three points. Six, back down to two points. Seven, one point... Eight and up are zero points.

3. BONUS POINT: If one of those pages is on a conspiracy that isn't directly related to either of the two you're trying to link.

BONUS POINT: If one of those pages are government websites.

--Ranking will be on the number of connections successfully made. Those in your tier will be compared by points.

Just a starting place. I play this game with a friend, but not on conspiracy issues. We use it to learn more about given subjects. It's quite fun and you learn alot. Modify anyway you think necessary

That's good to hear. No, I haven't been clicking 'refresh' on the Games&Events forum for the past 14 months waiting for this news.

It just looks like I have been.
