The goal of this topic is simple: organise, play and chat with your friends! Since this multiplayer game does not feature QuickChat nor autojoining unlike my last multiplayer game (c4), it is crucial I create a topic like this and not clog up the yctahh for example.
Use this topic to ask people if they want to play a game of Filler - I would say to not tag anybody specifically (but this isn’t an obligation). Since there is no autojoining with this game, you will also need to use this topic to share join codes - please be respectful and NOT join somebody else’s lobby if you aren’t explicitly invited.
Last but not least: the goal of this topic/game is to make sure every forumer has fun and builds links together, despite the fact we are all physically very apart from each other virtual hug everybody?
Filler is a two-player game where you must conquer the most space on the 8x8, 9x9 or 10x10 board in order to win. At the beginning of the game, the board is randomized with different colors (6), and you are given one as well.
The squares you have conquered are shiny - you begin either on the bottom left or top right of the board at the start of the game. Each time it’s your turn and that you switch to a new color (in order to progress in the game), any neighbouring squares of that new color will belong to you.
Turn by turn, you and your opponent take more and more space on the board - until there is no more available squares to conquer. It’s by comparing how many tiles each of you have that we determine the winner!
Take note: you may NOT switch to the color you’re currently wearing nor the color your opponent is wearing. Be strategic!
Outside the game, I feature an extra (temporary?) event which is a leaderboard! Everybody has an unique user ID (shown each time you win a game) that persists between plays. And each time you win a game, your ID gets saved into a global variable I can access on my end in order to make the leaderboard.
Dont worry, you have all your privacy; there is no way for me to know which ID corresponds to which forumer. If you want to rise on the leaderboard, just reply down below with your ID by tagging me - and I’ll link my script to your forum username so that next time I update the post, you name appears in it! How exciting
Ah yes - the most important thing should not be forgotten: the leaderboard is in post 2!
Last but not least, huge shoutout to @/StarlightStudios for being a superstar beta tester!
Let the game begin… good luck & have fun!
