Would you fancy a go game on 19x19 played by poll?
My hope is to launch a very open and huge rengo in which anyone can join. Being white or black at the same time will not matter.
My idea would be to wait each time to get at least 3 different options (one only for each of us) and then open a poll with these to select which to play.
3 would keep the game steady.
Sometimes we could be in situation where only one or two moves would seem to be the only choices possible.
Then a player (who didn’t propose a move) can propose a “no more choice” option to shorten the waiting time.
Then one more player can do the same (or chose a move)
If then only one move is finally at stake, the poll is useless, and the move played. If two moves, a poll with 2 options is open.
Each poll should stay open for not too long but long enough, I propose 24hr so we could hope to finish the game in around a year.
I don’t really know how to host it, need some advices on that. Would a demo board do the trick?
It would be great if:
-anyone can launch each poll (as long as there are already at least 3 different propositions at stake made by 3 different players).
The poll can have more as 3 options but can be started as soon as there are at least 3.
-anyone can update the game after each poll completed.
Like this, we don’t need a coach, the game can keep some steadyness and stay under control by the community.
I greatly could simply keep watching the process to let it go smoothly or sometimes if any consensus, adapting the ruleset to bring the most fun for everyone.
So, interested in the idea? What’s your own suggestions?
