Title: Grid Invasion Game
Post by: vh on March 21, 2012, 02:51:13 PM
The board/map is a 32x32 grid of 7x7 boxes.


How to play:
You fill in boxes

Starting rules:
Start at least 5 squares diagonally from someone. If the game is in progress, start at least 2 squares diagonally from any enclosure if possible.

How to win:
idk...you exterminate everyone else?

How to fill in boxes:
you use units
all boxes you fill in, excepting the starting one, must be adjacent or diagonal to an existing one that is your color.
you can do the following

turn 1:
[[]][[]][[]][[]]

turn 2:
[[]][[]][[]][[]]

as you can see, even though the farthest squares were not adjacent, they became adjacent.

How to get units:
you get 2 units/turn no matter what.
you get 1 unit per black square you have within your enclosures

How many units to claim a square:
1 for empty black square
2 for a colored square
7 to break into an enclosure (once you have broken into an enclosure, filing the black only costs 1)

What is an enclosure:
an area you make by filling in squares to separate a certain amount of black squares from other black squares.
corners must be filled too
the number of black squares within your enclosure is the amount you gain.

Turn order:
In sequence how everyone went on the first turn. A person has 2 days to take their turn
If you don't take your turn twice in a row, you're considered inactive and skipped until you rejoin by taking your turn anytime

both atomic and fiahowl can change their boards without changing the turn order if they do so in the next 3 days because i just updated op (which means the wall can act as one side of the enclosure basically).

Title: Re: Grid Invasion Game
Post by: vh on April 02, 2012, 06:52:27 AM
So we have a minor dilemma here: whether or not income should be calculated at the end of a round or turn. I believe it should be counted as a turn because the counting at the end of a round would not work. If it was calculated at the end of a round, then the last person would have the last say in everything. So say A and B had 200 income.

A attacks B causing it to lose all it's income
A gains 100 income from left over units.

B removes A and regains all it's income
B gains 200 income from all left over units. because removing is easier than breaking in.

So this gives B an advantage because B goes last.

If it were turn by turn calculated, B would not be able to gain 200 income after recovering from attack. In fact, A might be able to completely invade it if it had enough income. This brings me to my next point; I think the amount of resources required to invade should be upped.

To invade an enclosure should half it's value + 10.

A attacks B and causes it to lose 100 income

B recovers from attack, or, B retaliates and causes A to lose 50 income.

From how the current game looks, this change may give one of us a disadvantage or advantage, but we can just say it's a practice game, i don't think it really matters.

So what's everyone's opinion.

My opiums:

*Calc income each turn.
*Up cost to attack an enclosed area (your idea is fine).
Title: Re: Grid Invasion Game
Post by: vh on April 03, 2012, 04:13:27 AM
ok another problem. i realized that i have enough income now to just completely take over all your squares instead of breaking into your enclosure.....

maybe upping the cost of taking over an enemy? But because income rises so exponentially, it might not work out.

how about, each unit costs: defender's income/N to take over, where N is something?....that doesn't sound perfect, thoguh. ANy other suggestions?
