    Subject: Re: Cards are NOT playable on turn based site ...
    KnightFighter: I think some card games would be hard to play on a turned based game site, but for example

    Black Jack - it would be easy to hit/double/split - have up to 10 other "real" players playing - then after all 10 make their move (within the time limit) - the "dealer"/computer plays against the ones who did not bust. [Each person starts with a set amount of coins - out of coins, lose - or possible play a set number of rounds with the person with the most at the last round wins.]

    Texas Hold 'em, Poker - Just go around - not too many notes would be needed.

    Rummy - simple enough, no notes would be needed.

    Some others might be a little more difficult, but possible some small "tweaks" to the rules where players play against the "house/computer" instead of against other live people could work for some games.

    For games where what the other player has in their hands can effect others, figuring out how to handle time outs will take a little planning.

    guys,wake up !!!! Cards by their nature belong to closed games category ... you would have to make notes basically after each move ... after one week waiting for opponents discard you will be sick and tired of the game ... wake up !!!

    Snoopy: I learned that game many years ago while working as an extra for "The Babe" movie........ our friends use to play it all the time, but not anymore... they didn't like playing with me because I would figure out what my next 10 turns were - and I would make sure 100% sure that as I started running low on cards, I would always have the cards that I needed.......... they never liked to think that far ahead and we started playing uno all the time instead.

    Five Crowns looks interesting since it used a different type of deck - http://www.setgame.com/fivecrowns/index.html & http://www.areyougame.com/interact/item.asp?itemno=SET4001 (in case anyone else wants quick links to a descriptions)

    I haven't thought too deeply about if it will work on a turn based site, but Cribbage might work. And of course it's sort of a card game AND a board game. (In a way)

    Hi, how about a game called Five Crowns?  Only discovered it myself a few weeks ago, my new partner plays it at work a lot.  Great game, even my seven year old can play this one, and has beat me several times!

    Looking at the latest site Poll sums up exactly how BrainKing is for me now.
    Some times it seems to just virtually stop, and all i get on the task bar is waiting for brainking.com and then half an hour later it seems to fly along again
    So what does one vote for hmmmmmmm

    Subject: Re: Wish I had an "Other" option
    wetware: if entrants do not fit the BKR range one of two things has happened, first the creator may not have set the tournament up correctly to not allow outside ratings to enter. secondly, players may have fit the BKR requirements when they signed up but lost or won games to move them out of that range between the time of sign up and the start of the tournament

    Subject: Wish I had an "Other" option
    In the "What feature would you most like to see on BrainKing?" poll, I'd have liked to be able to choose this:

    Enable some means for either Brainking or a tournament creator to enforce the ratings range that is specified when one creates a tournament.

    I've seen tournament entrants that did not meet the minimum.  If that's allowed, let's not bother specifying a range or else make it clear that ranges are merely suggestions or requests to tournament entrants...which might not be honored or noticed by those signing up.

    Subject: Re:
    coan.net: I would think you would have to be careful with adding another option as it may get less voes only because it was not there when the first people voted. I would suggest doing one or both of the following (if this is even ever implemented):

    1. send a message to everyone already voted to inform them of the new option.
    2. mark the added option so everyone knows it was not there originally when viewing the results.

    How many times did you try to design, program, launch and maintain your own game site? After you do it, you can make skillful opinions about "no brainers". Until then, please be patient.

    coan.net: One that i would like to see is cosmetic more than anything else. I think when playing a Team game there should be more to distinguish them from a normal game.
    I think all info shown on the page should be Team related. At top the title of the Tournament or challenge match, Team BKR & Rating and also the flag displayed should be the Fellowship flag you are playing for
    Just something small that would look nice and help make them stand out a bit. I know i spend more time concentrating on Team games then others.

    Snoopy: I would not mind doing a general "what features would you like to see on BrainKing" poll (which of course is just opinion, and not neccessarly anything Fencer will do for the site - but just a tool to help see what the general opinions are.)

    Can anyone think of features requests that should be added to a poll if I were to make it?

  • An optional auto-pass / auto-move system which will make a pass or only move if none others are available. (with each person having the option to use it or not use it.)
  • Byes in elimination tournaments to allow them to start without getting them totally full.
  • In Gammon, being able to tell the difference between "race" & "bar" pieces
  • Allowing tournaments to start the next round once the winner is determined, even if all games are not complete yet.
  • Allow a player to set a maximum number of game limit for themselves
  • Be able to set a limit to the number of vacation days that can be used in certain games/tournaments. [for example, a tournament where vacations can be used, but only up to 5 days worth - more then that it is a time-out]
  • Set a BKR limit in ponds
  • New set of parameters in ponds (like starting with only 10 players - setting different amount of bonus or starting points)
  • Being able to show the "Move List" for certain games that it is needed - while keeping it hidden for others where it is not needed.

    Anything else anyone can think of that I should add to the poll if I were to make it?

  • If I get enough ideas - maybe I'll make it so you can pick the top 2 or 3 ideas (and not just the top one - since myself, I would like to see many of the listed requests)

    Czuch: When I thought of doing this poll, I started listing placed and had a list of like 80 places. Plus places like Hawaii I know are popular here in the US, but I'm unsure places in Europe and other places vacation (and likely to want to live).

    So I decided to just stick with countries - and remove the "fun" ones on my original list (in space, under water) and remove the general ones (anyplace with a beach, someplace always warm) - yea... I could have easily had over 100 choices for this one....

    I was just about to put Gatorade... but I wasn't sure if it was offered outside of the US (and I wanted to keep it general).... then I almost put the generic "sports drink" - but decided... Naaa.... already have plenty of options.

    As a side note, I also hate drinking just plain water (unless I'm really thirsty) - but I drink it all the time now because I love a lot of the different additives you can add to the bottle water (like lemonade, Gatorade, etc....) My favorite is the Wal-Mart generic brand that turns the water into Apple flavor water.

    Anyway.... don't drink as much Mountain Dew anymore..... and will drink 1-3 bottles of water a day now (with added flavor)

    TheONLYPegasus: Gotta say that's the most interesting sentence I've read in a long time. Problems swallowing water? My nutritionist (I'm chronically ill) told me that Gatorade, etc. are loaded with sugar, if they threw some carbonation in there they could call it "soda" - really, check the label.....unless your a marathon runner or something similar that actually needs all those electrolytes (and burns them right off anyway).....

    Because I have problems with swallowing water and am under doctor's orders to drink water or Gatorade/PowerAde and neither Gatorade nor PowerAde are listed.  Would have been better to have an "other" option.

    Well even though this board is called "Opinion polls", I consider them mostly just polls.

    So yea, some will be "fact" while others will be more "opinion".

    Hopefully I will try to mix them up - some more of a "fact", while others more of an "opinion" - and hopefully mix them up to have some deal some-what with BrainKing, while others have nothing to do with BrainKing at all.

    Again - suggestions for poll are always welcomed.

    Consider posting for a poll.. hehehe

    How sensitive are your feet?

    * You could suck every toe and tickle my arch with your tongue and I wouldn't notice.
    * I have callouces so thick you could take a nail and drive it in deep and I still wouldn't notice.
    * Lightly fan your fingers across my soles and I jump 5 feet into the air.
    * I can remain calm since I have enjoyed toe sucking for the past 20 years.
    * I don't wish to answer since I feel it might incriminate me and my partner(s) in the future.
