New Game Power Parcheesi

Recommended Posts

Hello, since my topic got deleted in the old forum here you have a repost of my idea.

 

I suggest a Parcheesi like game.

In Parcheesi each player has 4 pawns of the same colour (yellow, red, greenand blue) and a starting area called home on the board which comprises 68 numbered squares, 12 of which are safe (marked with a circle in the centre), which any pawn can land on. Each player has 7 squares to home and one finish (a larger square in the centre of the board) which only the pawns of that colour can move on.

The aim of the game is to manage to take all the 4 pieces from home to the target square along all the board before the opponents.

All the players start the game with the pieces in their respective nests, however it is possible to start the game with one piece at stake.

Before starting the game, each player will roll the dice. The player that gets the highest number will be the one that starts the game.

The players can take a piece out only when they get a 5. This action is compulsory whenever the player still has pieces at home, except if the start square is occupied by 2 pieces.

If the variation Superparcheesi with two dice is played, the player must take a piece out if the sum of both dice is a 5, for example 2+3. It is also possible to get 5 and 5 and take all the pieces out on the same turn.


I prefer the Superparcheesi version, but we can have the two options and configure it in the settings of the power. The game will work in the same way as the game card powers on xat. You have to select up to 4 players to play and you can even play 2 vs 2 (it can be configured).

You have to click on the central circle with the left button of the mouse to throw the dice.
To move one piece, you have to click on it to catch it and click on it again to place it in the square indicated (it is also possible to sweep it with just one click); to place it back in its orignal position, you have to release the piece in any parts of the board.

The players will have at least 15 seconds (it can be confired) to make their move. If they don't do it on time, a bot will make the move for them. Also if a player loses the connection during the game, a robot will substitute him.

The game could be like something similar to this but with the xavi avatars:

This is a very fun game and I'm sure that a lot of users will enjoy it.

How long does a game usually last?

 

What if losing players get bored and leave? :$

I could last maybe 10 minutes. It depends on the number of players.

 

If a player leaves, he will be replaced by a bot. That happened in the second gif and you can see the bot in the lower right corner.

Hello,

I support your suggestion because it might be fun to have a new game.

Xat hasn't had released a game power since 2013 (zwhack)

PS:  I love Parcheesi

Hello, i support this idea because i think that the game will be fun for friends and contests.

Also, a few years ago they did not take out a new game of bot.

Please, consider this idea because it's perfect.
