Is it just me or do you accumulate time no matter what.

I mean if you post tomorrow your time doesn't stop increasing does it? If you think about it the winner is always the guy who posted first, since your total accumulated time will always be equal to the current time minus the time of your first post. This game is flawed...except for the editing your post rule, but that is entirely unnecessary if others continue posting.

It doesn't work that way, it times since the LAST person posted. So your first post you weren't at 00:00, you were at 54:59. Now you've added on 18 or so hours.

I imagine it wouldn't be hard to adapt my "not when I'm watching" script... it already keeps track of the time anyway, what with that game's 15 minute rule...

*makes a note to do so*

Also, like 13 minutes or something. I'm catching up!

keozen wrote:Ok, semi complicated rules.

You win at this game by collecting time, the time you collect is the time from when the last poster posted to the time you post.

For instance, say I posted this thread 2 days ago exactly and I now posted again, i then gain 48 hours!

So, the longer you leave the thread before you perform "Thread Necromancy" on it the more points/hours you score, however there is also more chance someone else will steal those hours for themselves. mwa ha ha!

Everyone starts with 0 hours 0 minutes, GO! (or wait a while then go ;) )

The Two Rules:

- No double posts (you may however delete your post and re-post if you were last, it gives a HUGE risk of you losing all the points your last move got you as well as this set of points)
- If the thread is locked time inside the game is frozen (who mods the mods? In my game I do)

The one polite suggestion:

- When you post post your current total in the format of xx:yy (x=hours y=minutes)


You don't get hours from double posts, sorry. Believe me there were some times I really wanted to post but had to wait.
