    I would really like to see deploy-able chess, checkers and monopoly games that 1-10 players can play in game. Additionally poker would be really cool. I think it would be some great content, and not that terrible in terms of development.

    Think of how good the Sarge Ras: Rise of Poker-head rage videos would be.

    This is the kind of fluff stuff that is loved by many. This has been mentioned internally multiple times and i believe it will be something we look to implement when we can.

    When you do the chess pieces

    Ork male = King
    Ork female = Queen
    Wolf = Rook
    Mirdain = Bishop
    Human = Knight
    Alfar = pawns
    Dorf = garbage

    You're welcome.

    When I went to Switzerland, they had large tiles arranged like a chess board in the parks. You could take chess pieces that were roughly 3 foot tall and move them around to play. It might be better to make the games part of the world rather than having vulnerable players face deep in another interface. Especially in a game with no safe zones.

    That's half the fun. You're never truely safe in DF. I would happily sit in an inn with tytedaddytite and immerse ourselves in a game of backgammon.

    If someone made a "Darkfall: Epic board game pvp video!" it would be up there with Zag Raid.

    It's all fun and games until you turn your back to defend yourself and return to find yourself backgammoned. Which also brings up a good question- are they going to have a banhammer for board game cheaters?

    I would like to see housing items for different stake poker games. Like a high stakes table for keep.

    Do you think it's wise to add more ingame features that will cause potential lag within a very multi functional game world.

    I'm sure you and your friends can just share links to a website where you can play your mundane games to pass the time via discord.

    I asked if you thought it would be wise, clearly you aren't so wise. Also why would you want a distraction from actual content within the game, have people just sitting naked at the bank players checkers sounds completely ridiculous to me.

    Then you have the audacity to call me a "Mongoloid" do you actually know the true definition of that word because it's extremely offensive. I doubt you go around saying such a word to people for expressing an opinion outside of your house, so my question is why on earth you think it's acceptable over the internet!?

    Lets stay on topic guys. Bloodscar already said that we have talked about this internally. So feel free(and please do so) to discuss this topic further without name-calling.

    Are you really getting baited that hard? An in game way to bet gold would be superb for this game, and help give gold some more value. Gold is in abundance with most vets because its easy to get, adding in mini games were we can pit our mass amounts of gold, and lose it helps create a more flowing economy and is another reason for the loser to farm. Also poker and chess are fun. WoW added that stupid pet mini game and thats all people did.

    Fuck you Mudblood! I'll go full Compy on you're over grown Harambe lookin ass

    Alfar don't PLAY that shit!

    Fuck around and get sacrificed to Melek for a potato!

    Sorry @Redemption my role playng got out of control for a second

    On topic...In EvE I spent a ton of time gate gamping waiting for pvp while playing poker for in game credits or tournaments for ships ect It was lots of fun.

    I'd LOVE something like that for RoA. Some people would be surprised how much it adds and how much interest it gets ESPECIALLY if you could also do it while travelling on a ship or something

    Yea, we need to make these side games within the DF the client so the playing and betting are more "seamless".

    If some Alfar scum tries to skip out on his debt, I need to be able to flip the table and smash some skulls, if we have to come back to the ROA client from a 3rd party gaming site, by then the drama could start losing steam.

    Keep the drama and victory celebrations in game. If you guys add hookah bars(taverns)for these types illicit activities, that would be amazing.
