The first game was something like a year and a half ago, and this time it won't be official, but it was fun, and a lot more people have joined the forum since then. (for the original post, go here) A new snakepit will of course be made, because the number of players probably won't be the same. If people don't want the initial two tests, we don't need to put them in. Of course, this all depends on Schik being willing to help (which he probably will if there's enough interest). So, anyone who played in the last game is eligible to play, or you can PM me with the solution to the puzzle presented here. This is to weed out players who have no idea what they're doing. Also, post in this topic so that I can make a list of the players in this game.

Players so far:

I'd love to play the game again, but I have to ask how you're going to be handling the snakepit - are you just going to post pictures in this thread, or do you actually have a website running similar to the web interface from the original contest?

I'm hoping to get Schik to help out, or some other admin. It would be best to use the same place as last time (then it's already mostly coded, and I should be able to get it running without too much trouble.

EDIT: I found out Schik is on vacation or something, making it a while before we get confirmation.

Can I join, it would be great to have another chance at it.

Perhaps you can ask to use the original snakepit?

PS: only two days to go and we'll see turn 5000 in the original official snakepit!!

I'm in, definitely.
The original Snakes was a great experience for me, and I felt I really got to know the forum and its denizens then. I feel a certain kinship with eytanz, from our close positioning in the original game.

I could use the original snakepit, but it would probably have the wrong number of snakes. If you want, I could do it as similar as possible.

I'm not sure if anyone else remembers, but Erik posted about The Resnakening. Unless somethings's changed, the original snakepit page is available and there's a format over there for creating a custom map to go in it.

I'd be up for another game.

At least lack of interest isn't a problem.

Yeah, I could go for another round when we get this started again.

I'd say the same comments apply as I made in the Resnakening topic. (see the earlier-given link) If you want to start up a Snakes! game, get me (erikh@caravelgames.com) the following info:

* The arena to use.
* Length of time in minutes for each turn.
* Usernames or DROD Numbers for a list of committed players.
* Date and time you would like the contest to start. The date should be on a weekend. The time should be between 11am and 11pm PST.

Consider that given the turn length, player count, and desired duration of a game, you can calculate a suitable size for an arena. Last time, I suggested 10 players, 1 minute iteration, about 2 hour game duration, and the arena size worked out to around 34x34 squares. I believe you will have best luck finding people and not getting bogged down in consensus-building if you set the terms for a game early and ask who will join.

-Erik

Okay, why don't we start this game soon? I think a good time to start at would be Local Time:02-02-2008 at 07:00 PM, at the speed Erik suggested. Would that be good for everyone involved?

And do you like this snakepit? Players starting positions would be determined randomly in the gaps in the walls. If anyone else wants to make one, they can submit it here, and we can decide which one to use.

I'm in.

I also have an arena available in the Resnakening thread.

Also, Sam, the snakes at the top need to be labeled as 's', rather than blank squares. The left is 'd', the right is 'a', and the bottom snakes need to be 'w'.

I'll have to sit this one out -- 5:30am on a Sunday morning isn't exactly thinking time.

Don't take that as an invitation to start consensusing on times though -- with a 1 minute turn time you'll never make everyone happy on a forum like this. The next game can be later. :)

The time for me is 2:00 PM on a Saturday afternoon, so depending upon real-life events I might or might not be available. Hopefully I will be, since I'd love to play the game.

Can I opt out at any time before the contest? If so, sign me up.
