Word Game discussion

for word game #3

I'm thinking of introducing

1. No Game Days
- Game can only be played on certain days of the week eg only can play from Sun to Wed and no playing from Thu to Sat OR can only be played on Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun and no playing on Tues, Thurs & Sat.

2. Jackpot Words
- A predetermined list of words which earns 10 KS extra points each


The biggest headache is how to attract more players?

Because it's always the few who play? What's wrong with that? :?

Members who want to play will play. Members who are not interested in playing will not even visit this section of the forum.

i am not sure what you mean by first second or third game, but if you meant why the Story game is very popular as compared to the others, it is cos of the element of interaction and the entertainment we get out of it.
Story games we get to sabo people. Songs games we get to listen to nice music. For words game....it is a :snooze: for me....
MHO.

For game 2 we started fast and furious and the criteria to win is number of words. So if people play to win, there are odds if they are late to play.

So there should be bonus incentive for putting in words with 4e or 4s type of special words or words starting xxxxx where ppl can gain small quick points from it other than the long marathon number of words. To be police also must follow the game in order to do well. So in my humble opinion this game 2 advantage is mainly in the starting. Game 1 progressed a little slower so the window for latecomers like myself to join was easier.

And for word games, must be ppl who love words then will enjoy.

so maybe we should reduce the emphasis in number of words posted?

and focus on Jackpot words, landmine words and maybe special prizes like longest words, most 's' used?


:idea: what about requiring players to compose a sentence using the word they want to post? maybe some funny stuff would surface.
