We require at least 3 more players to begin this game, although to date the response has been very poor Sad . Is there something about the game you don't like? Question

If changes encourage more players then lets have your suggestions Nod

It seems to me that games with a specific theme, or at least more detailed game info get filled up faster. Vanilla Skies and Capture the Flag both seemed to fill up quickly. You gotta give the people a little something special Razz

Dunno about that mate, I advertised a very straightforward game, no real theme or unusual victory conditions and I had so many responses I had to set up two games! Shocked I'm still getting emails as well. Confused But then I did advertise both here and on "Stars! the list"

Guess its all in the marketing.

Cool

Eejits III was advertised in r.g.c.s (forwarded to The List). I
guess, it was Beg/Int that did the trick. And description of how
many players gets to change density would've helped, too.

Or the timing.
We've just had a lot of games fill up, most of them for beginners.

I read "All the original players of Eejits and Eejits II are welcome"

Since I did not play in either of these games, I assumed I was not welcome in this one!

It sounds like a great game Bishum!!! I'm getting married on 28 June, so I promised no more new games until after the honeymoon.... Shocked

But there seems to be some interest, and you're the most popular (recent) New Game Announcement, so lets hope you get some positive responses. Balloon

Never give up. Never surrender.
I have joined many games that took more than a week to fill.
Also posting with Mr. Stars helps. Plus you might get some new Forum members signed up in the process which will enhance games down the road.
The game Friends... that I just started got some players from Mr.Stars posting also.
Also several games starting about the same time doesn't help to fill them all at once.
Sometimes appearance will give psychological effect also. Have you tried a blue background with dark blue text yet? Or use lots of different colored text to get people in a holiday mood and excited. Very Happy

Just out of interest I thought I might add a poll to find out what Game people would like to play in next.

It might help me get a better response next time Wink

The single PRT and limited LRT's are interesting ones, will have to go away and do some testing if either of them gets voted fav Eek

I will also need some tips on remapping Uni's too Embarassed
