Game Revival and New Game Requests

    This thread is for suggesting new games that would be run by staff, such as Hurt and Heal, Mafia, and so on. If you're interested in running a game yourself, please feel free to post it by clicking the "Create New Thread" button in the main Playground listing.

    However, all new games posted here will be moderated before they appear to the general public. A game will only be approved if:
    1. It follows all the global rules of the site.
    2. Is generally suitable for Pokécharms' audience.
    3. The rules are well-written and easily understandable.
    4. The game does not involve direct, constant involvement from the thread owner.

    This thread is also the place to ask that games be revived from the Playground Archive. Ordinarily, forum games that aren't posted in for over a month are moved there, but if there's sufficient interest in seeing them return, they can be restored.

    a new H&H would be nice. Very nice, since we don't have any big games going on at the moment (like mafia or whatever). I don't have any ideas atm, though, for a H&H... game consoles maybe? I dunno <<

    Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    If I were to throw my two cents in, I'd say Pokemon Legendaries H&H. That would give us a decent amount of choices but not make things overwhelming, and everyone knows their legendaries.

    But regardless, I agree with Shiny that we haven't had an H&H game in awhile so it'd be my first suggestion for something to revive.
     
  4. Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    A new H&H sounds like a brilliant idea to me. Perhaps one featuring characters from our favourite animes? Furthermore, I would certainly like a new Mafia, but I'm interested to hear what the others have to say first.

    Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    It's been shown a few times now that our Anime topics are rather niche, so I don't think an H&H game with characters many people don't know is a good idea. My vote would be for something more widely known to a larger population, like popular gaming icons, something Pokemon relate, maybe even colors! Blue would totally crush all. :D

    I believe we won't be having a new mafia game for a while due to life getting in the way and the game becoming overall redundant or whatever. :<

    I thought we've already done a Legendaries H&H, even if it was a long time ago?

    Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    I generally leave it a month or so before even contemplating another Mafia, so that's an idea I'll certainly consider, but not just yet. Remind me in a few weeks, and I'll see what I can do.

    I'm very much liking the idea of Legendary Pokémon H&H, though. I put this topic up partly as a litmus test to see if anyone wanted a H&H, as it's been a good six months since we last had one. I think we should shortlist the legendaries to a list of about ten, though - a full 30-man H&H would get tiresome very quickly!

    So the question is, which legendaries should we include? Should I just draw some of the most major up and see what people think?

    Maybe just the banned ubers? It's more than 10, but not too much:

    Mewtwo
    Mew
    Lugia
    Ho-oh
    Kyogre
    Groudon
    Rayquaza
    Deoxys
    Dialga
    Palkia
    Giratina
    Darkrai
    Arceus
    Reshiram
    Zekrom
    Kyurem

    Not all of these are classed as ubers, but these would be my suggestions. Feel free to add or remove any you'd like.
     
  9. Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    My random two cents says have a Vegetables H+H.
     
  10. Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    This is for the win.

    Also, if we're going with Legendaries H&H, I'm fine with anything as long as Rayquaza stays there.

    Yeah I'm game for another H/H. It's been a while, and I'm still out for revenge on Katie for making Oshawott win by default.
     
  13. Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    I had a random idea on the way home- The Trope Game. Suggestions for a better title are more than welcome. |D

    This game works in the same way as the 'The Person Above Me' game did, in the way that you describe a certain aspect of the other player's personality or other such things, but instead of random comments and/or compliments, it is done by listing a TV Trope that you find fitting for the other person.

    Any thoughts?

    Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    I like Katie's idea, so I might just go ahead and start it. :)

    DS, your idea is a good one! I'll probably put it up sometime.

    Re: Dead Forum Games: Revival and New Game Requests

    Okay, posted both! :D

    If anyone else has ideas, keep 'em coming! The natural order of things around here means I'm fairly willing to try almost anything; ideas that aren't as popular naturally get pushed down after a while and eventually archived, so the forum almost does its own quality control.

    Okay, so I had an interesting idea for a new Roll to Dodge - something PokeMon themed, since this is Charms. I was thinking we would make trainers that started off in the Kanto region and then tried to work their way up through the generations all the way to Unova. I wouldn't want to impose on Brendan's RTD at all, so let me know if you think it's a good idea.
     
  17. In response to Dway's suggestion. I was actually already thinking about future Roll to Dodge Scenarios, once the currently active one rolled its course. I considered several ideas like a zombie apocalypse or a Lost-esqui adventure. I honestly never considered making a pokémon themed version. I would definitely take this into account at a later date, when we finish what we have on our plate now. Although, is it possible that you want to helm the next game Dwayna?
     
  18. Dwayna DragonFire

    I'm already trying my hand at one on another forum, and there's a lot of work that goes into it... Or at least the version that I made. I think that it is a lot of fun however... Sure! I could try to run a PokeMon RTD for you guys too. :3 Unless someone else wants to?

    A few of us were discussing this in the chat recently, so I figure I'll ask it here as well...

    Is anyone interested in another round of Mafia?
     
  20. Definitly so. But maybe there should be a thread up for it instead of asking it here, to make it more clear to everyone?
     
  21. Shiny Lyni

    Yes~ :D

    Butbutbut the next few months are the worst for me, and maybe others in the US who're stil in school. Because of finals and, at least for me, AP tests. :<

    So maybe one or two more months? ^^;
     
  22. Linkachu

    But that's so long from now. D:

    We could instead do one now and another next month. ;)

    I'm mostly curious if anyone wants to run another session of it now, because if nobody wants to it's likely best not to get a full-blown discussion going yet. Plus, the topic description said to suggest it here first, so I did. :3

    I'm happy to run another Mafia if people want, unless El really wants to do it.

    Mafia, want. So badly~

    I was actually disappointed to see that none had been played/were being played since I was last here. I miss being abrasive with my logic and it getting me killed, so let's bring it back. ♥

    well, Mafia signups are open again. Hop to it~

    We're running low on games! What would people like to see revived? Any new games you'd like to see?
     
  28. Maybe a new H&H I dunno how people would feel about it, the last one was about 4 months ago. Maybe one with the starters. Or possibly the vegetable one mentioned earlier on this thread :p
     
  29. Shiny Lyni

    mafia. It's been a few months, unless you want to wait a bit longer since it's still summer and people are still on vacation and whatnot.

    Also, H&H sounds good~

  30. I checked out the archives of Pokecharms games, and I personally would like the Pokemon ABCs, Acronym, Person Above Me, and/or the Three Word Story games revived, as I never got a chance to experience them. However, I don't know if anyone else wishes for these games to be revived, but I'm just posting my opinion and hoping for the best.

    Also I have an idea for a new game. I call it the "Pokemon Alphabet game." It's like the Pokemon ABC's game, but it's not just limited to the Pokemon themselves; Anything Pokemon-related can be posted as long as it follows the order of the alphabet.

    For example,
    Altaria
    Bluk Berry
    Cherrygrove City

    Mafia. Just let me play a game with only myself. I assure you it will be some of the most drama filled posting you'll ever see. But for reals, I'm always down for more Mafia (and would even run it if needed :'D).

    Heart and Heal is always a good game to play. A lot of the other ones seem to petter out over time, but those two are always pretty good ones.

    Mafia has only been a month, so I'd rather leave it a little longer before playing again. Bug me in two or three weeks and I'll consider it. :p

    I like the sound of H&H. Anyone got ideas for subjects?

    Also, anyone else want Three Word Story, Pokémon ABC, or the Acronym game? If I get a couple of "yes" votes I'll bring them out of the Archive ♥
     
  33. Like I said before one with the starters for H&H. I also had a quick thought about subjects and perhaps a Mario character one.

    Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Toad, Yoshi, Daisy, Wario and Waluigi

    Feel free to expand on that list


    And I like the sound of the Pokemon ABC :p

    And I agree it is a bit too soon for Mafia but as always I will be free and interested and hopefully will have reasoning behind my logic |D

    Got an idea for a new H&H game. I think due to current activity levels it'd be best going for a smaller list of choices (maybe with 25 HP each to start), so how about we use main series Pokemon games?

    ie.

    Red/Blue
    Yellow
    Gold/Silver
    Crystal
    Ruby/Sapphire
    Emerald
    FireRed/LeafGreen
    Diamond/Pearl
    Platinum
    HeartGold/SoulSilver
    Black/White
    Black2/White2

    I'd avoid including spin-offs because it'd turn into a massive list. Thoughts?
     
  35. Make the thread, people will post in it.
     
  36. Seems like a good theme for H&H :3

    Does anyone want to bring Roll to Dodge back? I feel myself craving something that involves a little roleplay and easy dice rolling. We could make it simpler as well so it won't die as easily.
     
  38. I would totally and utterly be in for that.
     
  39. I would love to see roll to dodge make a comeback.

    If Dwayna wants to make this happen, I'm all for it - just PM me your first post as usual. :)
