    Default Ultimate Division (Game 1 started; Game 2 recruiting)

    Welcome to Ultimate Division. This is a new idea that I had for a structured game and I hope that it works well.

    The rules:
    Spoiler
    Show

    0. This game was designed to be kind on my PM box so all player actions are taken in this thread. I also don't have much time for running games so the pace will be slower than most games. The complex interactions required each round should make up for that.

    1. The goal of the game is to be the first to get 100 points. If multiple people reach 100 points at the same time, then the player with the higher score is the winner. (In the unlikely event of a tie, then the player who scored the most in the last round is the winner.) Each player starts off with 10 points.

    2. The game is played in rounds. At the start of each round I will post a 10x10 grid filled with ten each of ten different smilies. During the round all players will discuss and vote on how to divide this grid and who gets each piece. The round will end after a week has passed or once a proposed division and split has been agreed to by a majority (>= 51%) of the players, whichever happens first.

    3. At the end of the round each player will receive points for each smiley in his/her piece of the grid. The proposed division with the most votes (minimum 2) at the end of the round will be the division that I use. (In case of a tie, whichever reached that number of votes first will win.)

    4. During the round to vote for someone's proposed please use green text. (SeaGreen is very kind on the eyes.) Ex. I support HyramGraff's proposal. You may only vote for one proposed division and there is no need to vote against someone else's proposal.

    5. Points can be transfered at any time. To do so please post in blue text. Ex. I give 3 points to HyramGraff.

    6. Here's the catch: during each round, each smiley is worth a different amount of points to each player. At the start of each round I will send a PM to each player saying how much each smiley is worth to them for this round. Possible point values are +4, +3, +2, +1, 0, -1, -2, -3, and -4.

    7. Any player whose point total goes below zero has lost and will be removed from the game. (If the game ends up with only two players remaining then the player with the most points automatically wins.)

    8. (Autolynch rule) Since each round lasts a week, I expect every player to make at least one post a round. If you do not show up during a round with out prior warning then the next round I will inform everyone which smiley will give you -1 points. This rule will not apply if a round ends early.

    Nitty gritty rules about dividing the grid:

    9. The grid must be divided into exactly N pieces where N is the number of players left in the game.

    10. All pieces must be contiguous. Squares connect horizontally and vertically, not diagonally. You can't make a piece out of two different sections of the grid.

    11. The pieces do not need to be of equal size. In fact, creating N equal sized pieces may prove to be impossible as the game progresses.


    Interested Players:
    Game One:

    1. Ezlo
    2. Korias
    3. pingcode20
    4. Crystall_Myr
    5. Raiser_B1ade
    6. Stu42
    7. Castaras
    8. banjo1985
    9. Almighty Salmon
    10. Zar Peter


    Game Two:
    1. detrevnisisiht
    2. Freshmeat_
    3. Alarra
    4. Fleeing Coward
    5. DarkLightDragon
    6.


    Since I'm expecting the dividing to be a fairly complicated process, I'm limiting the number of players in a game to ten. However, I am willing to start two games at once if there is sufficient interest.

    So, is anyone interested? Is there anything about the rules that needs clarified or tweaked?

    You will be receiving a letter from my lawyer for using the "Ultimate" prefix for the name of your game.

    j/k Interesting game, looks really complicated. I'm not going to sign up but I will be watching to see how it goes.

    Castaras, once a week is the minimum. I would expect that if you want to win you'll need to post more often.

    I'm pleasntly supprised that I've gotten so many sign ups already as I haven't even advertized this yet.

    Yeah, I know. But once a week being minimum is very very useful for me. Just in case I forget to reply and all that.

    Welcome to the first round of Ultimate Division. The ten smilies for this round are:



    And now your first board to divide.

    {table="head;autonum=1;autonumtitle=#"]A|B|C|D|E|F|G|H|I|J
    |||||||||
    |||||||||

    |||||||||
    |||||||||
    |||||||||
    |||||||||
    |||||||||
    |||||||||
    [/table]

    PMs with how much each of these are worth to you will be sent shortly. Everyone else who didn't make it in fast enough for the first game can still sign up in this thread. If we get another ten people I'll start a second game.

    Current Point totals:

    I propose that we divide it as such.

    I get Sections B1 and B2, through E-1 and E-2, for a total of 8 Smilies.

    The Rest you may divide amongst yourselves.

    I would want the 3 by 2 rectangle from h3 to i5 please. I'll be happy with that although it isn't the best combination. If you wanted to be really nice I'll just take the whole last column.

    Actually, scratch my original choice. I want the rectangle F5 to I6, along with I4 and J4.

    EDIT: Wait, that's a bit too heavily contested for my tastes. Alright, I take the square H8 to J10, sans H8, H9 and I9.
