This has been suggested before - I'm not sure whether or not it got rejected or not - but I like the idea...

oh, sorry, didn't see it in the official suggestion box :?

Found this . (It's under To-do, Gameplay, More Game Types)
But there are many suggestions there and they are quite general. Where as the one suggested here is specific. I hope it warrants its own thread :)

I like this idea a lot. But I don't think it will be passed because the XML could be confusing

Interesting. It would have to be restricted to only Sequential I think. I'm not sure if playing this in Freestyle would make sense. But I'm not very sure about that, so somebody come convince me and I might jump ship.

Overall the idea is worth discussing. As it is now I would not be opposed to implementing it.

I like this idea a lot. Of course, it would only make sense for sequential games. I really like 1 on 1, but I avooid most maps because of advantages of going first. (any map with 36, or 45 or anything with more than 45 teritorries).

i agree that this probably wouldn't make sense in a freestyle game. But i definitely think it would be a lot of fun for sequential games.

also, it could be fun with assassin games, where you have multiple targets, and if any of your colors dies, then it's game over. so you have to protect all.

I could get behind this idea. I'm in agreement that it would have to be restricted to only sequential however. If you did it freestyle, it would be just like the current 1 vs 1 games we have now, only all your guys would be different colors.

Very nicely done, superkarn. I'd like to see this go somewhere. :)

Brilliant idea.

As you mention, greater strategic thought. You are your 'own' team, it opens the options further. All in all, gets my vote.

Just wanted to add that with this game type (1 person controlling multiple colors), you can have lots of different/interesting game play such as

* 2 players, 4 colors (2 colors each)
* 2 players, 6 colors (3 colors each)
* 2 players, 8 colors (4 colors each)

* 3 players, 6 colors (2 colors each)
* 4 players, 8 colors (2 colors each)

* mix with assassin, where any one of your colors gets wiped out, you lose
* mix terminator, where you get points for each color you kill. so you can take points and lose points to the same player in the same game.

think of the coolness! 8)

Clever idea superkarn.

It gives a new dimension to single player strategy.

Definitely have to be sequential only.

I voted yes of course.
