Just curious on a couple things:

1. If we go to 12 man games, does that also mean 9,10,11 man games as well?
2. Will we increase the # of players that can be in a team game (i.e. 5 man or 6 man team)

We do have the options for 9, 10, and 11.

We haven't added 5 or 6 player teams (yet), but we have increased the number of teams that can be in a game.

BOB provides many useful things including a stats table that shows all the terts held by different players.

r:Fewnix 4.9 5 12 3
g umbrellaman 4.9 70 117 12

Hover your mouse over the r: Fewnix (r is for red :D ) or the g: Umbrellaman (g is for green :D ) and Bob will highlight on the Map all terts held by those players - the red Fewnix, the green Umbrellaman. It should be possible for colour challenged people to play any game with about the same access to info as the colour enabled.

5 player teams would be Quints and 6 player teams Sexts

Also, sign me up to help test new functionality if need be. Can probably also help modify XML for maps too. I assume these will be released in phases as it'd be a large effort to update all maps where 12 people are possible out of the gates. That can be a discussion for a different day but just wanted to be aware I can help where needed.

Thanks Blake.


I've started a separate project with the Cartographers to first, set a max player value for all necessary maps, and then as mapmakers want to update them, after the feature, we can do that. All those maps is quite a bit of work, though!

I have to say it's awesome that 12 player games are finally becoming a reality. It gives me hope that the XML may one day see the overhaul that's been long overdue and would breathe more life into map design.

I'd be interested in throwing in my two cents as well. I'm not sure how much of a time commitment is required, but if it's fairly minimal, then I'm in.

Many hands make light work -- we have a good turnout so far, it seems. If you end up joining and find yourself too busy, don't worry about it. :)
