Last year, right around this time, I started the Tug of War game, and it became the first big forum game here. I know, props and all. But then, things got hectic with me trying to do epic level counts (we got into the -1000>0>1000 games) for each game, then contracting mono, etc, etc.
But now, I have more than enough time to stick with this game and give it my full attention! And it'll give me something to do when grinding missions in EVE.
So without further ado, I present to you, again, the
Tug of War
Rules are fairly simple and straightforward. Each game starts at 0. Each game has a high and low goal, which, for the first game, will be +100 and -100. To play, you post your team, the Up or Down team, and then the previous number +1 or -1, followed by the resulting number. For example:
While yes, you could just have the +1 or -1 and the resultant number, it makes things a lot clearer to have the original number as well. Last game we had like ten people posting within seconds of one another, and often overlapping their numbers. Including the original number you tugged up or down from really helps sort out tangles like that.
A few extra little housekeeping rules: no double posting, unless to bump a page. Someone came up with that idea last game, and it was a great idea. Sorry I can't thank you by name, but if you're reading this, you know who so are. Props dude! Oh right, and I double post just to start off the first game.For each game, you have to pick a team and stick with it, don't jump ship or anything. We tried that rule last game, and it ended up being a whole lot funner.
And finally, before I get this party started, I will, once again, do the awesome thing that made the last game so bloody popular. I will do counts. At the end of each game, we'll take a brief hiatus while I go back and count up all the posts made by EVERYONE during the last game and tally them up. Then we'll have an MVP for all teams, and and MVP for the Up and Down team. MVPs get karma. We'll also have little achievements to get too, which I won't tell what they are. They're secret, at least until the first game is done.
Right, I think that's everything. Under this I'll edit to update for each new game.
A new round just began on page 14, second post!
-200 < 0 > 200

Let's get this party started!
-192 - 1 = -193

Ok, I'm a fool.
Was a page behind
-196 - 1 = -197
-198 - 1 = -199
NEGATIVE TWO HUNDRED!
I WAS AWAY!!!!
Now you have to start again!
Not exactly what I'd call a fair game, but fair games are no fun IMO.
Sheesh, I take a weekend and come back to negative 200 again. Curses!

I call foul! Where's the umpire?!?
I am the umpire and I say Teseer is SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAFE!
I do feel bad for syneptus though, you guys left him all alone, he couldn't stop the tidal wave of posts by himself.
I tried to be on!
I had a wedding (in which the cake exploded) to go to, and I can't just exactly stop IM'ing my crush just to win some corny game..
I tried to be on, but Teseer was on for 12 hours straight, and Splitshadow was being his awful helper.
I have to say, FOUL! Splitshadow should not have taken advantage of my "DANG" and my incredibly laggy internet connection.
Fear the boredom Tech Support brings!
