A few weeks ago I was listening to the Idle Thumbs podcast and they talked about this interesting browser-based strategy game Neptune's Pride 2. I have been looking for a fun, accessible game for the community here to play (I haven't been on the site for awhile, and I would like to play a game with y'all.)You can read about the game here: http://triton.ironhelmet.com/#landing I want to do this game because you can literally play it anywhere with an Internet browser (it's all HTML5) and I think it would be fun.If you are interested in playing, here's what you do:

1.      Make an Account Making an account is easy and free, you just have to have a Google account. Don't make your username the same as it is on GI or anywhere else. From what I've read (I actually haven't played a game myself) part of the fun comes from anonymity and being very selective about releasing information.

2.      Leave A Comment Once you've made an account, leave a comment at this blog saying you are interested in playing (we can have a maximum of eight players, so it's first come first serve.)

3.      Wait Until WednesdayThis Wednesday at 7:10 AM Central Time I'll be launching a game. Before I mentioned you really need to comment if you are interested, the reason for this is simple: I need to know how big of a game to set up. There is a limit of eight players, but I need to know so we can move quickly. Like I said before, I haven't played the game before. It'll be a learning experience for all of us; I also think it will be a lot of fun.

Based off the little I know of the game, I just need to lay out the ground rules. These rules are more appropriately titled suggestions, though

.1.      Keep Your Name Close To Your ChestThere is a messaging system in the game, and from what I have read diplomacy is part of the game. However, just for fun I'm going to request you not divulge your name willy-nilly. Use your own discretion

.2.      Try To Keep It PG-13While this game's demographic isn't really people not used to salty language, I still would prefer no one get offended or anything.

3.      Be Ready To Keep PlayingThis game could take a number of weeks, it's unpredictable. If you want to play, make sure you are committed. Luckily for us this game is made for convenience. If you have an internet connection and a competent browser, you should probably be able to keep up (from what I know the game is lengthy but not time-intensive).I hope to see everyone playing!
