As mentioned in a couple of places maybe it could be good for some of us to have a fun distraction that is also kind of low-pressure social as a lot of us will be feeling a bit more isolated for the foreseeable.
So this is a thread to try and organise people to play multiplayer online games with! A focus not so much on console games as there are other places for that, but things which can be played on a phone or whatever variety of home computer.
My suggested format is that if you have a game you want to play please make a post in which you:
specify the game, including website or app name
specify if it is for mobile in app form (and if it is android/ios/windows compatible) or if it is browser-based
make a poll for people to register their interest
if you as game suggester could help organise with people times to play or pairing up or whatever is required. So maybe you give everyone a daily partner they can arrange a time with? Could do a round robin, a tournament, or just individual games for the fun of it. Whatever works best for the game and people who are interested. You can use this thread, a new thead, or take it to PMs.
or maybe just allocate a time of day that you are going to be available to play it and invite people to join you then?
@wileycat and @kermitwormit as you both already showed interest. Also can’t remember who but I know some people mentioned about online chess recently?
