Post Balls

Hello,

Returning after a few months away, I did what every normal person would do and POG Searched my name. Seeing a mention in the Feb pub by eyebooger, alas, here we are; ask and you shall receive.

The Colored Balls game has returned!

Exactly 8 years to the day since the debut of Balls 1.0 from Mole Season 2

Balls also made an appearance in Mole Season 3 and Mole Season 4

Now, the game will be adapted for Standalone POG play. It will play very similar to past versions, but except for awarding "exemptions" and Mole-related prizes, the Balls' properties will be designed to allow for a logical winner (and losers) to be determined. But of course, it will also be designed to allow for the utmost of shenanigans.

Sign up below. Full ruleset has not been determined yet. Game will probably be "slow-ish" over a few days. Round length (read: post once per X to achieve maximum value) can be voted on below.

Re: Balls

I'm already having fun designing balls. This will be fun.

What I need from players is desired game length and phase length.

Something like 2-days with a ball-steal every 2 hours maybe? And maybe like no actions between 00:00-08:00 ET?

Re: Balls

You'll benefit more by being able to post at least once per 2-3 hours during 'day' but it's not required and otherwise minimal investment

Re: Balls

Looking at it, time zones might matter?

Re: Balls

yea I think a long "day" solves it. As I mentioned above maybe just no posting from 0:00-08:00 shouldn't hinder any American or Euro time zone too much. RIP Aussies I guess tho?

I could also impose a maximum moves limit. So we could have a 24-hr day phase where you're allowed a move every 2 hours, but we could limit it to something like maximum 8 moves so that everyone could use whatever 16-hour 'day' window works best for them. This also doesn't cripple people who have to be away for a work day or something like that.

Re: Balls

yeah but i don't want you guys to have to bend the rules for me, especially since i'm not even sure what this is or if i'd even enjoy it

i won't unsub it and will pay attention until you figure out how to go about it, just am totally indifferent about playing so please don't factor me into any planning

Re: Balls

Impractical Jokers has got to be the best thing that's ever been put on TV.

I can't get enough of it. We watch reruns often.

Based on my design so far I think something around this is a good # to start with.

Let's plan for a tonight start. I will add stipulations for move limit so there should be theoretically no disadvantage for timezones. I hope rickroll is stlil in

I'll take up to +2 more, otherwise will rand and get it started for tonight
