Anyone interested in a forum 4X?

Anyone interested in a forum 4X?

(note: this wouldn't be happening for a long time. This is purely to see if anyone is interested in it under any conditions)

Pretty much the title. I've had ideas for a game similar to Hyrule War or a better version of the one I made years ago popping into my head for a while now, and I'm curious if there'd be any interest in giving that style of game another go. Can't say too much about it beyond the general idea, seeing as I haven't started anything remotely resembling designing the game, but the goal would be something you could play reasonably well spending only a few minutes on your turn. Deep, but hopefully not a massive timesink for players who don't want that.

For anyone not familiar with HW, what I believe was the last round played of it is below, and apparently now over seven years old:

The crappy copy 13-year-old me hosted can be found here, although this version will hopefully be nothing like that if it happens:

http://www.vgf.com/forums/threads/great ... ups.65674/

So yeah. Post here if you're interested and stuff. I'll probably be looking to make a thread for playing various board games I've got lying around when I get home later this week regardless of how this does, so look forward to that as well.

I promise to get east and west correct this time. >_>

^That's about the most I'm expecting anyone to be able to say considering I don't even have a guess at when it might happen.

What about a PBEM of a real 4X?

Don't own it.

Civ III is the only one I have that I know has a PBEM option, although I haven't bothered checking in anything more recent than that.

^http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4X

Mine would be most influenced by Civ and the aforementioned Hyrule War if it happens. It'd also probably be more like a 3X since the forum style isn't exactly conducive to meaningful exploration.

Right, well, 3 is enough to at least attempt something. I'll start working on it and update this when I've got a better idea of what it'll be.

Bump to check if there's still interest. I've more or less figured out what I want to do (after 5 months of doing basically nothing) and could be ready pretty quickly.

I'll give some more details about it once I see what the playercount looks like. The goal is still for it to be playable even if you only have ~10 minutes for turns.
