Board and Card games?

Postby Matthew on January 9th, 2014, 6:05 pm



Have various board games ever been touched upon in Mizahar? I feel like I saw something in World Development about board games or card games, but otherwise, I haven't see much else. Do people consider things such as Chess, Go, Checkers, Poker, and so on to exist?

Board and Card games?

Postby Mirage on January 9th, 2014, 7:18 pm

Well I have actually been playing with the idea of a Sahova version of 'Wizard chess' that helps nuits get their minds off of the monotony of their lives. The game itself is still not really worked out in my mind, and is kind of a side project that I do for fun sometimes. Basically you could build an army with pieces you collect from other Wizards that you defeat. The matches themselves are very similar to chess, with a different kind of board and different rules, but the biggest difference is that these games usually last for years, if not centuries, with the participants just coming back every once in a while to make a move and return to their lab for another year before their next move. Still nothing more than an idea though lol. Have you considered doing a game yourself?

Not particularly designing one, though Matthew might actually like to do that. I have noticed chess is a thing, and people have confirmed that for me, so it really led me to wonder about other games as well. It would be interesting to have a board game night IC, as odd as that might sound.

I like the idea that you gave, though. I would enjoy seeing it, if you ever fully whip it up.

Here I am, thinking about Mizahar games

Here Mirage is, inventing Sahovan Pokémon Warhammer

Mirage I love you

A simple solution, I think, would be to set up some kind of communal thread where people suggest re-skins or re-names of mundane games, new games, etc that could be thrown up as a go-to shortlist so people don't end up reinventing the wheel and suddenly we have 90 different versions of I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Poker.
