The official social platform for ConsimWorld
I've been running a text-based pbem war game since November last year. This is an email based game, without any software to download and install.
The difficulty has been to find players who are willing to invest the time. The average would be about 5 hours per week, more for an active player. How much time do you spend playing video games?
I have extended the turn cycle, shortened and removed the deadlines, and split up the rules so that players don't even get as much reading to do. They only get what applies to their role.
This is a thinking man's game. Anybody with an appreciation of WW2 era gaming and history will enjoy the depth and detail of WW2 The Big One.
The main complaint from people leaving is time. Of course, I have no way of knowing how much email is passing between players, and I would imagine that can build up.
How much time do you spend per week on your various gaming pursuits?
