Weird Science First/Personals
Something Smells Gamey
You'll find our regular features and series are at the bottom of the page because
FIRST we have another batch of games from Subcom. Deidzoeb,
PLUS a list of h2g2 gaming groups and clubs
h2g2 Game Addicts Support Group
This group caters to addicts of the specific word games found on h2g2 such as "Linkword" and "20 questions" and "Four word postings only" and many others. If you're a frequent browser of Ask h2g2, you may have noticed that the high activity on word games there tends to dominate the page at times, pushing regular conversations to the bottom or off the screen. By the power vested in CAC, our pal ~jwf~ urges word game addicts to please start new games on the Game Addicts Support Group, a more proper place for them.
Also note the crucial difference between their acronym and ours. If you forget the "Support", you might start calling them the Game Addicts Group and shortening it to "GAG". But that acronym is already branded on the brains of all1 our readers as Guide to Alternate Galaxies. Just remember that GASG has an S, but GAG has BS!
ARGHball: A National Pastime
You might not expect much from a hybrid sport invented by kids who didn't understand or enjoy the original rules for tennis or golf. But any game that codifies humping the foul pole as a necessary part of one's victory dance has a definite advantage over boring old football2.
"Press the quarter on the center of your forehead and press down. No adhesives are allowed." Quarters stuck on your face, in a test of your pain threshold. Social lubricant not included.
Dead Man's Fall
"I would like a crossbow bolt to the stomach, please, Bob."
Meet other gamers on h2g2:
h2g2 Internet Gaming Club
Still in development, this club seeks to help researchers find online gamers to play with or against. First Person Shooters, Real Time Simulations, Role Playing Games, Sports Games and even Board Games.
h2g2 RPG Club
A more general group attempting to gather those interested in role-playing games, whether on PC or game consoles, live or with pen and paper and dice.
After that Grue has killed you for the hundredth time, or after you've starved to death every time you tried to play Planetfall, come to Club Zork. They're "dedicated to helping hitchhikers stuck in interactive fiction games, such as those by INFOCOM."
h2g2 Fantasy Film League
This group of researchers play together on fantasyfilmleague.com. Each player takes the role of a movie producer. Choose a director and six real actors to create your virtual movie. If the actors appear in real films during the game season, you score points. The player with the most money (points) at the end of the season wins.
