Schedule:
Running now:

Coming up next:

TBC
Game Show Marathon 2?! - Rammy

Only Connect - VeggieLegs
Tribes - SUTSS
Survivor - Last Request


Always running:
Sheep http://www.onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?threads/sheep-a-forum-game.334/
Last Man Standing
The Premier League Game http://www.onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?forums/the-premier-league-game.52/

With so many forum games in the works/happening all the time, I thought we could do with one of these types of threads so we know what's coming up and can keep our games going in a nice, orderly fashion. Basically, I want it to be a thread where we can see what game is running, and who is running what in the future...

Basically, as an example of why I've made this thread... after NOTW, LR is going to be running Survivor, which you'd assume will be all up and ready to go pretty soon. We don't want to end up in a situation where NOTW ends, LR goes to say he's going Survivor, and then suddenly somebody else jumps in saying "HEY, PLAY MY NEW FORUM GAME!" just before him and he's got this game all ready to go and somebody has jumped in at the last second.

To give you an idea, we used to have a thread like this for NOTW games way back on TFF, where people could basically take slots so we had a nice order of who was running what.

I won't include continually running games like Sheep or whatever. The pattern I'd say we should aim for it to try and get it to go: NOTW, other game, NOTW, other game, and so on. Try and fit a NOTW in between the bigger games... unless we reach a point where no bigger games are planned and ready to go, obviously. Even if that does still happen, though, I'd suggest we at least give a week or two breaks between two NOTW games running back to back.

So yeah, we've even got a list for games in the making, if people want to tell people that they're planning something but aren't exactly ready to say when they want to run it.

So yes to this idea? If so, let me know in the thread when you want a slot and I'll try to keep this list updated. Also, should we do one for features as well, like the top 100 lists and what not?

So thus far we have:

Schedule:
NOTW - SUTSS
1FF Survivor: China - Last Request
NOTW II - Oaf

TBC
1FF Wars - Oaf
Game Show Marathon 2?! - Rammy

So yeah, we've even got a list for games in the making, if people want to tell people that they're planning something but aren't exactly ready to say when they want to run it.

Wash your mouth out.

And Spidey's planning a game.

And James will never run GSM 2.

Ha, I guess I could have a section for continually running games. How many have we got around? Could post a link to them and all that shit actually. Be a good place for newcomers to see all of the shit we've got running.

Oh yeah, Spiredey has his football game doesn't he...

And James WILL run GSM2 god damn it.

Yes a good idea. Sheep is fine as it runs along quickly but we need to organise the others to stop clashes.

A bit sad I am looking forward to the next 1FF Wars.

I'm still not sure how LR's brought the next 1FF Survivor out so soon after the previous one.

Yeah I'll think of something to do but I'd want it to be super awesome so will probably take some time to create.

Here's a very loose idea that I've just thought up but anyway...

A few teams compete in a combination of forum games which tie in with real life sporting events. The competitions on the forum give teams the opportunity to get the advantage of picking first etc on teams and players in a variety of sporting matches, games and races. When gameday arrives, which could be a golf tournament, a horse race (or number of races), football matches etc etc, the teams choose who they want on their side. The winners of these events therefore win points for the team that have them on 'their side'.

Do you get me? I've literally thought this up 10 minutes ago but think it could work? If anyone thinks it's a go-er then I'll think up some more details and can slot it into the order at some point in the future.

If I understand those rules properly, then yeah, I could see that working!

Throw pro wrestlers in there as well and SOLD!

Yeah I'd try incorporate a wide range of things. In fact, it doesn't even have to all be sports tbh!

Yeah, you could branch out. Like, get actors in there for stuff like The Oscars or based on earnings and whatever.

Basically, whoever does well at life gets lots of points. On that basis, I'm shotgunning The Rock. He seems to be successful at everything ever.

Where's Superstar Wars you twat
Good point. Not really sure of what to do with something like that. I mean, I was mainly thinking about games that take place in GC or the games that are running constantly... don't really know what to do with games like that which are only in one section and not running constantly. I guess it'll go under the games running now section.

After I've done the Top 100 TV Shows, and Sheep...I will be running another big forum game of some sort. No details yet though, and definitely some way off!

I wasn't going to mention it until the end of Survivor China, but as this thread is up I may as well say that I have something planned for October (find out what at the end of Survivor
).

Bleedin heck, I can see us having to book slots for games about 5 games in advance :lol:

This being said, besides NOTW 2 and 1FF Wars, I totally have something else that I'll be running way down the line. At the current rate, expect to see it in like 2018.
