There are some board games that should be implemented as social games in walk in stations expansion. ISK exchange should of course be implemented along with these games so you can play for ISK with other players.

My suggestions are the following:

Go

Chess

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess

Poker

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Hold%27em

Backgammon

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backgammon

Mahjong

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahjong

Craps

There whould be no point with walk in stations if there was nothing more interesting to do than buying Quafe and drinking it virtualy. EVE players are smart so we'd need something smart to do while docked...

Do not know how smart it is to pay 15$ a month to play chess or poker when you can play them for free but afaik with "walking in stations" thing some cool scifi games chess like strategy will be implemented. look it out on Google think there was a presentation there about those.

Gives 'station games' a whole new meaning.

It's just one more thing to do ingame before playing station-spinning. A couple of unique EVE games would be nice too, but it's not like chess and those other games weren't popular for a reason. Also nice for people who are afraid of new stuff, like probably half of the forum population. With chess at least the can't complain that it's new. Very Happy

So, how can we make sure the devs actually might have a look into this and put some boardgames into the stations? Add some games to this thread so it gets some attention. If we get 20 posts i'll sent a mail to CCP and put some effort into this project.

Ya, well idk if you knew this but during one of the fanfests they showed a demo of Incarna in which they played games in and said that they would be adding games as they went. So ya, kind of a pointless thread seeing how similar your requests are to what they already have...

The thread is not pointless. This forum is for development ideas,whether stupid, redundant or not.

I do like the idea of a set of games to fill the in station experiencw. I just hope the game's existing core experience can fill the new space. WIS should not only introduce new content and experiences but it should also improve on and expand existing content (the market, industry, surveilance, and fitting)

My suggestions are the following:


Not enough.
I suppose there should be:

Black Jack:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackjack

Roulette

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roulette

Slots

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_machine

Shell game

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thimblerig

Pool:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-ball
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nine_Ball
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snooker
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_pyramid

(Last isn't popular on the West probably, but Russian players should like that one)

And probably more Poker:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omaha_hold_%27em
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven-card_stud
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draw_poker
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razz_%28poker%29

Though i don't know if last will be popular.

Maybe some other card games.

But my suggestion is to have just card deck and then players can play cards which ever way they like (drag & drop) So everyone will play games they like or solitaires they like.

Plus you forgot

Checkers:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checkers

Yahtzee

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahtzee

And probably again just having dice for playing any game you like would be cool, having 4d, 6d, 8d, 10d, 12d, 20d would be even cooler.

Dominoes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominoes

Reversi

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reversi

Mastermind

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastermind_game

(2 boards is better)


Probably it's not all but i can't remember any other popular game
