a piece. randomly assigned colour and piece. pawns will be marching forward in a desperate attempt to be destroyed in order to come back as a rook. everyone gets a go to move once in about 10 rounds. A slight grey shading would indicate how long its been since you moved and how soon till you are ready to move again. the loosing side gets the same number of new joiners and when you loose your piece you would normally go back in at the same colour, but perhaps we could assigned new pieces based on the number of players, or number of pieces on the board, there would have to be a point at which you would swap sides as one side runs out of new pieces. Presumably you could also dump a piece as soon as it is surrounded and has no where to go. when you would be assigned a new piece or a recycled one that has been dumped by someone earlier, that is now back in play.

       Damn - so did I, but [bigsleep] annotated first. It must be lunchtime.

       [+] good title, summary.   

       didn't read the stuff under; any good ?

       Dunno. I'm easily put off when it comes to reading an idea that begins with sentence fragments, and even less interested when the description clearly slipped under the spell-checker.   

       What little info that actually stuck in my mind was not very well thought out, being more theory than fact. A sort of half-baked halfbakery idea, if you will.   

       Quarterbaked? This dough definitely needed more time in the proofing stage.

       sp: This dough definitely _kneaded_ more time in the proofing stage   

       Come on, you can't pass up an opportunity like that.

       [TomP], you're right, I dropped the ball on that one. Sorry, I couldn't rise to the occasion. Didn't sleep well last night.

       The same thing happened here as with the Cheese Craft.   

       My phone ate half the message or "Dough" as you refer to it. Sadly I can't remember what it said before the words "a piece." so I just left it.

       Blatant homophobia?

       I can see the basics of a player<>environment game:   

       - NPC's which coordinated skill level varies between the multiple maps   

       - start as a pawn, get promoted when you move to the end of the map, or an object(s) within the map   

       - the higher ranking the piece, the more NPC's it will attract   

       It'd be difficult to write though, without it becoming simply a game which characters are dressed up as chesspieces.
