Octopus Wars - Qualified Perceptions
Octopus Wars
Okay, after some encouragement by mjperson and shumashi, there is a new plan for octopuses:

Octopus Wars!

Anyone who wants to play gets an octopus (this may take a little while). Your octopuses will compete in a variety of amusing tasks designed by mjperson (rules coming soon), either in teams or solo. (Sort of like SF0, but easier and designed for octopi.). Prizes will be awarded.

(Feel free to pass this along to people not on livejournal.)

(Also, nuclearpolymer, as the previous First Octopus Responder, gets an octopus even if she doesn't want to play, but she seems pretty close to the target audience for Octopus Wars...)

Current Mood: amused amused

I want to do this!

Can I play? Even though I'll be long-distance? I can make my own octopus. Although, I'll probably end up having to make at least three before I get one to call my own...

Yup! Remote players are welcome! (And family teams!)
If you want to make your own octopus, that's fine, but I'm also happy to mail them to faraway players. :)

I want to join in octopus games!

Oooh! Can I be another remote player?

Yup! :)

I don't really need an octopus, but can my current octopus play? :)

After referring the question to the rules committee, the answer is Yes, your current octopus can play. (It can even have an octopus if it wants, though that's getting strangely recursive).

Me too!

Sounds like fun, and since you are supporting remote players... :)

I am a little afraid of what mjperson might have in store for us, but I'm up to it!

I'm interested!

Ooh! Me too! I will join in the War of the Octopi!

Cephalopod combat? Sign me up!

Wow, I get an octopus AND a war? Excellent!

If there's still spots for long-distance players I'd also love to play!
firstfrost From: firstfrost Date: March 11th, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sure! :)

(Not having seen the rules yet, I don't think there's a big difference between long-distance players and nearby players except that the long-distance players who aren't near anyone else might have to use more photoshop for team entries. :) )

Ooh, me, especially if I can have a green one!

Hmm... I don't think I want to play, but I am pretty swift with the crochet hook. If you get me a copy of the pattern you can offload some octopi production to me.
firstfrost From: firstfrost Date: March 12th, 2008 04:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Yay, backup octopus production, thank you! I've put a copy of the pattern here
remcat From: remcat Date: March 11th, 2008 11:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me me! I can help make octi or make my own, if provided with pattern.
firstfrost From: firstfrost Date: March 12th, 2008 04:27 am (UTC) (Link)
I've downloaded a copy of the pattern here. (Commenting for everyone who asked, on the theory that maybe not everyone else reads all the comments. :) )
