Season 12 Game Nominations

Post by KarateEd » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:45 am

Hi Folks,

Onto Season 12 then......Please post your 3 chosen games using the guidelines below and submit them in this thread. Please ensure the game exists online (I'll continue posting so that you can download from the Complete BBC Games Archive - http://www.bbcmicro.co.uk/index.php). If it doesn't exist there then please check that it exists in the pages here: http://www.stairwaytohell.com/bbc/index ... diskimages If you know of an internet location of a game that isn't at either of these sites (highly unlikely though) then please post that for me.

It will start on July 1st, 9:00 PM UK time. This will give us 2 weeks to put our games in which should be sufficient Cutoff for admitting games will be June 28th at 9:00 PM UK time in order to give me time to get the 12th season site set up so we can start on time.

Again, please submit (ONLY) 3 games that you like. The stipulation is that they must not have yet been played within Season 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11. If you have a game(s) that wasn't chosen in the last 5 seasons then you may Choose it for Season 11. If there are duplicate games chosen (if you check the list though, there shouldn't be) then whoever chose the game first keeps the choice and the duplicator may choose a different game if they wish. See up to 3 game rule below.

Try also to choose 3 games that make sense as a score competition. ie: Elite or Revs don't make sense for this competition. There must be a proper score within whatever game is chosen or it will be removed with the option of you being able to replace it if it's in the time frame. Also, the games should not be ones that take forever to play through one go otherwise few will want to play it. If you're proficient then the game may get long but first you must be proficient and that's ok.

If you don't want to choose 3 games, you don't have to but it will allow us more choice for Season 12.

Some games have the ability to start different ways..... ie: different levels to start. If you have a preference, kindly state that in this thread when you pick the game.

These are more guidelines than rules but I think most people understand how it works.

It's a crap shoot what games are chosen. It's completely random (my wife used to pick them but sadly I now pick them from a bowl that is raised over my head so will have no idea what is being chosen). Also, the papers are folded so I could be looking at them and still not see so it's more random than the random generator in the Beeb.

I can't think of anything else at the moment but I will get the thread set up for choosing your games for Season 11.

If you have any questions, please hold them for the thread that needs to be set up that shows what games have been chosen and Sydney or I will try to answer them in there for everyone as well as possible.

Thanks again everyone for participating and see you in the next round.

Just so everyone is aware of what was chosen the last 5 seasons, please don't choose any of these games again.....tx....Ed...... :-)

These are the games that may not be chosen for Season 12: I will add and subtract these as explained in my previous message.

C'mon Tricky..... from the new players I've seen come on to the game site, I doubt that I'll be in the top again, ever.

This is about exploring games and just having fun with that and the 'comradeship' of it all.

Send us something good, play a bit and don't worry about winning. I think there are 2 or 3 people out there who are top notch gamers and most of us won't be able to match them no matter how hard we try.

Without good competition, we don't get better anyway, so come and have some fun.

And I seem to recognize that game........ ;-)

Thrust has already been chosen by another member earlier on this thread so if you wish, you may choose another game in it's place for the full complement.

Thanks LB,
