: The suggestion to allow players to manually select territories has been brought up many times. The suggestion has never been implemented primarily because it would take a long time for games to begin. Of course, the common response to this is that it would only be an option
, and users would play at their own risk. This thread is the result of merging several identical suggestions that make no changes other than to allow manual territory selection. Variations on this theme are indexed below.
One option that would decrease these concerns would be to allow this option only for speed games
. The main concern here (and when this idea is brought up in response to many of the suggestions here) is that many users say they would not like/play this option as it would prolong "speed" games. Another response is that speed game-only features benefit a relatively small number of the users on this site.
Another option would allow this only for private games
Please note that having each player submit a preference list won't work either. Territory selection in the second and later rounds is often conditional on what was selected in previous rounds.
If you see a suggestion that should be merged here, please post a link or inform a moderator.
[On Feb 25, 2013 this post that actually used the form was made]
At the start of the game, rather than receiving random starting territories, players take turns drafting territories.
The boardgame RISK allowed gamers to choose whether starting territories would be randomly distributed or drafted deliberatly by players, in turn.
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
An initial territory draft would add a huge strategic component to Conquer Club otherwise lacking.
Sorry if this has been suggested before i dont really post too often on the boards but I just had a suggestion...
I'd like to see a gameplay option to be able to manually pick what territories you start off with. Computer will manually pick who goes first, they pick one territory, the opponent picks their territory, etc....Could be limited to just 1 v 1 games, or could expand into 3,4,5,6 player games. I think it could help put more strategy into the game instead of sometimes relying on someone getting a lucky drop.
