The Forum Game Recommendations and Ideas Thread

Go To

Sticky, please?

New here? Or a regular poster here who is searching for forum games that are actually good? Perhaps looking for new ones that show some promise but can't find any? Then this is the place to be.

The purpose of this thread is for troper forum gamers to recommend forum games to other posters that ask (like a sub-forum library of some sort), or to recommend your latest created forum game.

When posting recommendations, it is preferable that you link the name of the forum game to its thread, along with a description of what the forum game is about.

Forum game rules still apply here.


FORUM GAME RECS

Our Avatars Are Posting In A Forum Thread: What if your avatar was part of a forum thread? This is the result.

Our avatars have been genderflipped: Same as above, but applied to your avatars.

Corrupt-A-Wish: One person makes a wish, the other grants and corrupts it, then makes a wish etc.

1000 bad reasons to declare war: Self-explanatory.

Bad ideas for forum games v2: Thread topic ideas that are likely to get you banned or shunned.

1000 things we've learned from video games: Just started by me, a humorous look at things video games teach us.


Happy recommending and happy forum gaming!

YOU are BANNED: The Forum Game: Humorous reasons to ban people, including not banning enough people, having a scary avatar, having no avatar, etc.

What offends you about the previous post?: A thread lots of people confuse for YOU are BANNED. get offended by spelling of people's sigs, avatars, incredibly lazy puns, how many exclamation marks the other person used, etc.

So... pin the thread?

I guess I'll make a catalog of several threads:

Pick the most ____ avatar from the gallery above you

This is a series of games in which the current poster looks at the avatar gallery of the previous poster, and selects what the person thinks fits the criteria the best.

To post the avatar, put two | on each side of the avatar link.

Listed in the order of creation:

Both threads work pretty much the same: Think up a description for the weapon/attack named by the above poster (hopefully inventing it yourself in the process), and think up a name for the next poster to work with.

For those fans of Epic Rap Battles Of History, we now have an Epic Rap Battles Of Our Avatars for all the matchups you wanted to see but have never happened. So far we have had the Spanish Inquisition, Commander Shepard, Doctor Robotnik and Gurt the Lime Man just to name a few.

So, lemme get this straight; Our Avatars Are in a Room Together is just our avatars to the left, in a room, together?

Well, some people (me especially) like to use multiple characters, but usually at least one of them are in the avatar.

It's a game of "Whose Line is it Anyway?". It's pretty fun and it REALLY needs a jump start again.

Destroy the Godmodder. That thread is awesome. What you do is you try to kill a guy that is, well, godmodder using overly ridiculous plans that you 'charge' for a few turns, but can only be use at the end of the turn. As in, before you implement a charge, you need to wait a number of turns that sounds reasonable. You can have a maximum of 3 charges ongoing at the same time. Some of them are pretty insane, like a Weaponized Subreddit, An Overly Long Acronym Tank (OLAK, for some reason), a sphere of Wobbofets, the Game Master's avatar in Minecraft and a whole bunch of stuff I spawn that screws us all over, mainly Dimentio.

It's pretty ridiculous. And awesome.

We Have All Been Gender Flipped. It started as a general description of your reaction to becoming the opposite gender, but now it is an RP game with a developing plot, and an evil entity known as "The Voice", from a Parallel Universe, whose intentions are unknown.

Mall Fight, a game based on the Escapist roleplay forums, is one where you (not your avatar) pretend you're in a similar situation: you are in an infinite mall that has just descended into blood-shedding chaos, and you must either join in, or die an innocent bystander. You never are Killed Off for Real, though, so you can play for as long as you want.

Radio Daze is a game where you write a brief quote that segues from the last one, and has a point where it can segue into the next one. Look to this Uncyclopedia article for inspiration if you need to.
