Gameplay idea - British Bullsquids
« on: February 24, 2013, 12:21:50 pm »
Much as I'd love this to be a JFC game, I think it's better suited to Squids.

British Bullsquids on Canyon.  Four or Six Squids race from one end of Canyon to the other, whilst two Bulldog Squids try to "bump" them (ram) or "tag" them (harpoon).  Anyone bumped or tagged joins the Bulldogs.  Last Squid running is the winner.

Flareguns and one harpoon (front mount) only.

It's theoretically possible to play the smaller version (six Squids total) without any changes to the game if spectators agree to referee, and players agree to trust the spectators.

British Bulldogs? Wow, that game has a crap sounding name in English.

This idea sounds awesome. We should try it out some time. I'd imagine that a lot of moonshine would be involved   :D

Moonshine for the engines and for the Captains!

We could implement an idea like Squash's on the old forum. Every time ships collide, everybody drinks!

Hmm...  So everyone spawns in the same area, a capture point is at the other side of the map and the victory condition is tiny, 20 points.
Two teams, 3 on each side, race starts, madness ensues.  I believe that would be rather easy to actually implement without any crazy coding.  Just have to change some spawn points, add a cp and done.

If it was an official game, it would need the bump and tag events to be captured and the reallocation of ships between the Runners and Taggers between runs (you run one way, then back the other).

I think a few honesty games are required first, just to see if it's fun enough to be worthwhile.
