Madness. (1 star per player)


Jay has finally caved and made a game with my ridiculous settings.

Standard settings apart from.

Dark Galaxy disabled.

Stars per player 1

No ships or infrastructure to begin with.

$3000 starting cash.

Not a game you need a of time to make your moves in :smile:

After accepting victory

Ha! That’s a great concept map - I’m in, under my usual alias, Panda Bear.


If there was ever a game appropriately named, this is it! :wink:

P.S. Guess I don’t need to spend much on carriers at the start.


I was thinking it should have been named “The Ultimate Mexican standoff”


LOL - that name does even better describe this game.

The game settings don’t appear to be visible … but am I correct that we can trade with anyone?
It would really be dastardly if you could only trade with players in Scan range.


I like how some people took their favourite color/shapes despite them being in ridiculous positions :smiley:


Sekoms took Pink Hex from me. I want him dead. :wink:


I dont know what to spend my money on. I’m freaking out.

Does anybody know if you can buy 6 science with $3000

update: you can buy 8 science or 17 industry or 25 economy.


This ought to be interesting.


Qwerty: As you can imagine, the Hulk does prefer green - glad to see the Wizard in the game.

Sekoms: Did MattS take your color/shape?

Jay: Send me your $3,000 and I’ll let you know how far it goes! :wink:

Krusnik (and others): Yea, this game is going to be crazy - good job Ross coming up with something different … really different. It will probably be real quiet for the first week, and then I’ll wake up one morning and BAMM, I’m gone!

In terms of strategy, I wonder who is going to launch first … because whoever goes ALL-IN against an opponent will have all their neighbors launch against them - D’OH! :wink:

And even if players go AFK, that isn’t beneficial since with one star/player, they are going to be camped out there … and if there are several AFK’ers, they will share tech and get powerful as a group - maybe the AI-Bot will win.

If anyone is playing with ALT accounts, that will be greatly beneficial here.


I’d hope they wouldn’t be so scurrilous.

Been discussing techs. With only one world, construction costs spiral, so terra, exp and banking seem more valuable.


I’m interested to see how hard this makes the AI as well.


Lol, I spent 20 mins with a calculator working all that out too! Is there a formula for working out how much more progressively expensive a star’s ecom/ind/sci gets based on it’s resources?


There is. Qwerty posted it I believe?


Here’s the “Terraforming Calculator” forum link




No Hulk, I have no fav shape or color on here


Well someone has already taken purple circle so I’M NOT PLAYING!


One more player needed!


And MADNESS has started!

For reasons unclear, I’m not able to see the game parameters … but it’s 24 hour production and you can only trade with players in Scan range … this is going to be … Madness! :wink: :wink:

P.S. Updated post with map below - probably won’t change for a while …
