Thought... why not write a script that will set everyone up, then add it to the server's crontab? That way you can start a game even when you aren't around.

Extra marks: make the script also delete itself from the crontab, or edit itself so as not to repeat itself and make it easily reuseable.

I was suggesting for tomorrow. I made a mistake in my email to you, so it can still go on. That's what everyone was told here (or at least I think I made that clear here), so it probably should still work out fine.

Okay, it is all set up now. You can watch a practice game in the new arena at:

http://forum.caravelgames.com/snakes.php

This will also be the page you use for the real game. Someone Else will be resetting the game when it is time for it to start. If you aren't sure about when that time is, check with him!

I was planning for about an hour from now, but that of course depends on how many people are ready. If you're ready, post in this thread. As soon as we have a few people, we'll start.

No, you're still alright. I thought for a moment that I had built it really bad and you were dead, but then I figured you should be able to get out of that little fix.

Damn, I really should look better which snake is controlled by who. Oh well...

Looks like Golfrman is also finished now.

I have to jump down to the bottom left corner, and I can't get out of there.

38 turns of roaming around alone if I got that correctly.

I'd say that the timer of one minute worked pretty well. Well enough time to analyse different paths and you don't need to sit in front of the computer nonstop. Kind of a pity however that so many people weren't actually playing (I almost missed this too: Saw that it had started after about 15 turns). A clearly displayed untiltime tag or something could've helped a lot. It's too easy if you can assume that half of the snakes won't do anything unexpected.

Okay, I think a good time to start another game at would be Local Time:02-16-2008 at 12:00 PM, at the same speed (1 move / minute). How many people would play if we had it then?

I made a few minor modifications to the snakepit we used last game. I think they will make the game a little fairer. Of course, it would need to be different if there's a different number of players.
