View Full Version : The Civilization Game

For the past several years, I've done these kinds of civilization games on another forum, but I decided to expand my branches outward a little bit. The basic run-down is that I describe a bacterium that we start with, and you suggest "mutations" for it. Mutations advances into more mutations which creates life in the oceans which advances into a land-dwelling creature eventually which evolves into sapience.

Whew, what a mouthful.

Anyway, I decided to take it a step further. What I WAS going to do, was take it to four forums at once, and the forumites of each forum suggest their own creature. Then the four creatures would go head to head to head to head on some continent vying for ownership of the realm, or perhaps ally with each other. I then decided "Okay, four forums would burn me out trying to keep the story straight, so let's take it elsewhere, like a blog, and try to bring it to the masses as a whole."

And thus, http://riseoftheinternet.wix.com/oneszeroesandtwos was born.

The basic rules are on the first post of the blog, but you're going to want to follow @DrHervisJasper (my other handle for running this game) for updates. With enough votes, maybe you guys can create a stick-figure shaped sapient race? I don't know. :)

There's a little giveaway going on right now. For those who follow and retweet @DrHervisJasper in the next 20 or so hours, they'll be put into a little raffle for a Steam giveaway, of a game $20 or less of their choice.

The game begins in 20 hours, and a post is already cued up. Anyone interested in trying to raise a race to sentience / sapience? :) If I have enough interest in this post and get enough followers, I can post updates (with links) every time I update.

Oooooooooo

This seems quite interesting.

Competitive Spore? Count me in!

I don't have a Twitter though. Is that a problem?

Twitter is free to set up, so you might as well make one, that way you can take part in the voting.

Once you do, follow @DrHervisJasper --- that's me, as I'll be posting updates and links there. And maybe here, too. I don't know yet. Anyone else interested?

Well, let's see if anyone else is interested. The weekend has yet to end and it is still the first weekend of the new year so people are coming down off the new years' hangovers. If enough people post in this thread they want a forum Civilization, then I'll do one for here as well as the Twitterverse.

I really didn't expect everyone I know (in other forums) to almost universally despise Twitter... I thought -everyone- had one.

Well, there's that old saying about assumptions...

I'd be interested in a forum-based civilization game.
