Ok, here is the official race thread. No post is allowed except your race game word
You can have banter in the registration thread.
I'll repeat the instruction in the next post here.
Come in here
Read the following game instructions as you register.
Once again Hi all,
This is the first edition of 'The Forum Race Game' so i'll try my best to explain everything well to your understanding.
I know you must be wondering, how could a game be played on forum expecially a race and even mafia that you can download/install to your mobile or computer?
Well, when i first heard about it(forum games) i felt just as you are feeling now. But i assure you that after reading this introduction and games rule, you will atleast have a glimps of what a forum race game is.
Forum Race game is a game that is run by a member of a community forum, as far as the game is concerned that player is the Race Moderator(MOD). In this game i(MrCally) is the Race MOD.
So I will arrange the players in teams, and inform then of each race time.
The Race MOD is also responsible of adjudication of each race and letter after each race he will post a result that covers the drivers championship as well as the team championship(if its a team game).
From the above you can sense that this is a double competition, you are competing for individual glory as well as the team's.
In there drivers Championship, points are allocated by this way.
1st = 5points
2nd = 4points
3rd = 3points
4th and above = 2points
So each driver goal is to always clinch the 1st position.
In Forum race game, there is also a team championship, in this competition 2 or 3 drivers that are joint together must be fast enough to stay top, the faster the drivers allocated to a team, the better their team is.
If player 1 in team A finish 1st, team A will be awarded 5points.
And if player 2 in thesame team A finish 2nd, then player 1 and player 2 points will be counted together for team A, then team A will be awarded 9 points.
You may not understand this well now, but when the game starts you will.
HOW TO PLAY
This is actually what you must be wondering for a while now.
Ok see how now.
I(The race MOD) will post the time and Game word for each race.
The game word may be 'START, END, FINISH, GO, or RUN'.
I may say: Post 'GO' at 2:00pm.
The first to post go win 1st position and so on.
Each race has a 2hours durations.
Any driver who post even a minute before race duration will be pulled out of that race, we call it crash. It means that no points will be awarded to that driver, so be careful.
Any driver that post even a minute after race duration will also be pulled out of that race, and no points will be awarded to him.
So post only within the two hours race duration as will be provided by the race MOD, in advance before each race.
Having said all that, my ink just finished so I rest my case here.
If there is anywhere you didn't understand please ask question, I'll be happy to provid an answer to you.
