if only. You get 1s to make a move, independent of other players. The result is esrly death, at least for me..

This may be apocryphal but apparently there was a russian guy playing this over a 2400 baud connection who won the game.

Names and details may be incorrect.

I tried it. It seemed like a pretty fun game.

I rapidly realised, however, that I was never going to be very good at it. It takes a certain sort of person to play real-time games with permadeath.

This sounds much more like pain and frustration than fun. I couldn't even play that quickly at low CL's, yet alone when you start facing competent enemies.

Hey why don't you give it a try, it might be more fun than you think.

How does the whole "1 turn per second" thing work with running? I couldn't imagine playing any *band with literally taking 1 step at a time.

When you're not in combat, you can move much more quickly.
