    Default Insano-four: Shut the Door

    Welcome to Insanowar

    Da Rules:

    1.) There are five players, each of which represent a commander of their army.

    2.) Each player takes turns choosing some powerful character, semi-powerful group of characters, or large mob of expendable non-characters from any sort of media. Examples: The TMNTs, a Dreadnought from 40K, a mob of kobolds.

    3.) When each player has 10 selections, the game begins.

    4.) A map will be provided showing the layout of the battlefield. Each person will have a base of operations with which they can wage war. Note that each base is about 2 turns away from each other.

    5.) A static turn order is established. In each turn, the player dictates what their troops are doing, as far as the opponent can see. Secret actions need not be reported (although it is good sportsmanship to give hints as to what your are planning).

    6.) When troops engage, the person whose turn the engagement took place on decides the outcome, which will usually NOT be all one way. If there is any friendly dispute (and the dispute WILL be friendly, or else), other players/playgrounders chime in with their opinions. If no consensus is reached, it's a 50/50 slaughter.

    7.) The winner is the one who wins.

    Da Guidelinez:

    1.) You can't choose anyone TOO powerful. No gods, demigods, anything like that. Make it something that's about the same power level as the other troops on the field.

    2.) Don't be a jerk. The objective here is to have fun--frankly, who wins and who loses is pretty arbitrary anyway. This game is definitely straddling the line between Silly and Structured.

    3.) Respect Awesomeness. If a player is pulling off something that's just too awesome to believe, that should aid his victory.

    4.) Enjoy yourself. Seriously, guys.

    Rules subject to change.

    Yup, if the last 2 matches are any indication, priority on reservation claims is determined by order of reservation.

    I woulda thought it would be better to work it out by time of initial reservation/interest shown divided by times played. It'd be better to let people who haven't had a chance to play yet have a go if you've already played twice is my thinking.

    Hm. Well, I'll place a reservation for Insanowar 5 or 6 if 5's full. But don't lose heart, as I might cancel that depending on some circumstances.

    Bath, you're in, already.

    I don't care if there's precedent, or what. You're in.

    Talic: I'd say you're probably good.

    12 of us, but Rutskarn doesn't necessarily want to participate and Duos hasn't claimed his spot yet.
    I had a spot reserved for number two, but I was unfortunately away when the game started and my spot was given to billtodamax. Hopefully I can cash my rain check this round, but I guess I can wait for number 5 or 6.

    Don't feel bad, at how the teams are splitting up. There's a lot of demand for this game, and many of them have played before. Setting up one privately is a way to clear out a bit of the backlog.

    Besides, what am I? Chopped liver?
