Tag anyone?

Does anyone here play tag with their vehicles (cars/trucks/scooters/bikes)?
Might be a good idea to start a game similar to motorcycle tag here like this

http://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=119745

Anyone interested?

Its quite fun and addicting, but the game there only have bikes playing. It would be fun to have all motorvehicles playing. It could be done year round.

There are few members here that I know plays (bcrdukes/taylor192/?)

In all honesty, I would much rather NOT participate in the BCSB MC Tag series simply because, the rules are far too anal.

I wouldn't mind if we started it on Revscene. And hello 4WheelsLESS!

Sounds like a plan, but do we have enough interest here?

Maybe not in the Sportbike section, but I think we would have much more interest in the Vancouver Auto Chat side in the "Spotted" forum.

This is just my own opinion but rules really ruin the game (at least for me it did.) I think the only rule should be the 24-hour rule where if it's not found, a new one can be posted up.

OK, Here is my take on things and please do offer your opinions as you the players are the ones that will play the game. The motorcycle tag over BCSB has been going on over the last 3 years so there are much trial and errors already "been there, done that" scenarios. Much of the rules were copied from a guy from Toronto that a member from BCSB copied and amended over the last few years. The reason the rules are there because of potential flaws in the game (potential loopholes) and only rules are what is needed to settle those flaws or disputes. I wouldn't want any of those disputes be settled over a knuckle wrestling session nor thumb wrestle match .... I think most of those rules work quite well and if we all agree, we should let the tag go 48 hrs. However, I am a proponent for a shorter 24 hrs as I like things to go a bit quicker pace. We should amend the rules to include cars/trucks/scooters/bicycles?/etc?, that way we get a good number of people to play.

HR requires at least 3 mods to look after this game from start. Duties will include enforcing rules and updating score sheet. If people want to we could start as soon as 1st week of July and run as long as people as interested because we are including all kinds of vehicles (not just sport bikes).

Awaiting your comments and volunteers.

I'm down for this but my work schedule does not allow for moderation et al.

I can propose the idea to the Moderator team in case it gets preemptively nixed.

Sounds good bcrdukes. We would setup the spreadsheet via gmail and allow the score keepers access. Anyone can start it. Thanks for taking it another step.

Hopefully tomorrow 'tuesday'...before Canada Day! They ordered my parts last week and was supposed to be 2 days ETA. Therefore, if the parts arrived tomorrow then I should have it back by end of day....I got so much work done for the last week though!

LOL!

Seems like the BMW dealer network is good.

Unlike Ducati.

I like Ducati's too, but I think would be more of something around town bike. But if it's around town, then I'd rather go with a Vespa...less gears to put on... I actually test ride a Vespa 200 the day after my bike broke down ....it was in Langley and the guy wanted $5300 for it which was only worth $4300 tops per Bluebook.

Okay so here is the verdict:

Nobody opposed this idea so we are GOOD TO GO!

Anybody who wants to volunteer as the game moderator is much appreciated. 4WheelsLESS?!

I'm going to be away a lot for the rest of July and 1st week of August. I won't have the time to mod. I really want to get this started and feel like getting ahead a bit by bringing it up....so was hoping some other people would like to volunteer...like taylor192 or bcrdukes

Correction: The rules for BCSB are too anal! maybe I'll be unbanned one day.

It would be a great game on RS cause there would be far more players if cars were allowed. Unfortunately this means the rules might have to be more strict, otherwise some people would find it impossible to get started in the game as loose rules would encourage fast tagging by a small group.
