I re-posted it with this category in case the general category is in danger of never being read again I have an idea for a forum-based chess gameplay, in which there are 2 players and 1 game-master. Using Knightmare Chess, following the shared deck rules, two players are seated and presented before the game-master as role-played via forum. If conflict arises, each player submits a number from 1 to X where X is the total number of available cards as dictated by gamemaster.
