New card: Communication card?: 8/22/2016 09:58:31

Hello all,
I had an idea for a new card used in games without private messages: The communication card.

You can use it to send a private message to any player - in games where private messages are disabled.

What do you think about this?

Greetings

useless, as you can always use PM

Games without PM's are usually disabled for a good reason, seems kinda redundant if you look at it in that perspective.

Disable pm is also dumb, since players can communicate privately by messaging

I'm not sure what the idea is behind making a game where private communication isn't possible, and then making it possible through a card. Either a game is well-served by allowing communication or it isn't, generally speaking.

That said, perhaps there's some value to limited communication. (And, yes, as people say, it's a bit of an "honour system", but that's OK. You could also disable private communication altogether if you had "anonymous games", where players' names are not displayed. Now that would be an interesting feature!)

Here's an interesting version of limited communication:

* You can only communicate with other players you border (can see) on the map.

This has some interesting potential. Exploration of the map has all kinds of new implications. Creating a "meeting area" in a part of the map for everyone to discuss plans could be important in some games.

For example, making a Blockade to cut yourself off from an attacker now has much more serious consequences - you can no longer communicate, until you can find them again elsewhere on the map.

Thanks! I think those two options (especially together) could lead to some interesting games.
