Dogs of War (TRDG vs josta59) logistics

Postby josta59 » Thu May 30, 2013 10:35 am

Hi Tom, here are the Dogs of War rules. Don't be daunted by the 9 pages; you only need the first 2 1/2. The rest just explains what's on the cards.

Speaking of the cards (this is basically a card game), the reason we are now able to play without a moderator is that my wife came up with the brilliant idea of coding the cards so that I don't know what I'm actually dealing to you. There are 141 cards, and I've made a new card deck with the names of the 141 titles of the '70s sitcom Maude. In my next post I'll include a decoder. When I deal cards to you with episode titles, you'll look up the titles on your decoder to find out what's actually in your hand. Make sense?

Since I'll be using the same deck, I'll have to use the same decoder. You'll have to trust me not to look up your cards. This is just to make your hand not plainly obvious to me.

Note that we probably won't play the full game, which wouldn't end until the cards are used up. That could take years. We'll set a monetary goal, probably half a million, and then decide whether we want to keep playing.

I want to make this fun and bring us into an alternate world, so if you want to, you can come up with a name for your military contractor company, of which you'll be president/CEO/whatever. Feel free to come up with as many details as you want, such as your headquarters, a little history, anything. I'll make a game thread soon where you can post all the imaginary info you want. When I deal your cards, you'll find out what mercs are on your payroll. You'll be hiring freelance mercs, as well.

More to come! Let me know if you have any questions at any time.

Note: More than 2 players can play this. If anyone else is interested, feel free to jump in any time. I'll gladly deal you in.

Ok, here's the decoder for our game. This took some time!

When I deal your cards, you can look them up in column A (they're in alphabetical order) to find out what cards you have. You'll want to paste them into a Word document or something that will help you see what's in your hand more easily as you play the game.

Please note that "Maude's New Friend" and "Maude's New Friends" are two different cards.

Again, if you have any questions, just ask.

Actually the missions will be on the cards. Remember, you're a contractor, not some government lackey. You're running a business with multiple Pentagon-type folks as your customers, so you call the shots. Potential missions will come across your desk, and you'll decide if the money is worth the risk.

So we're interested in hearing about your business before you send your boys on their next mission!

Thanks my competitor

Have a bit of a problem on the spread sheets

sheet one has the Walter cheat code , so no prob there

BUt when I look at sheet 2 and 3 they are not filled in, with the Maude and Albert stuff so I can see what other cards I got

ny ideas here the spread sheets show up but as I said sheet 2 and 3 are just the blank boxes.

So right now I know only 2 of my 8 cards, or is there something I'm missing here

in your download after clicking there are 3 sheets to look at, I hit OK for sheet 1 and I get the Walter coded messages


Then I do the same for sheets 2 and 3 and just the blank box sheets with no info there.....

HELP please

Tom

Not mercs, but I do like that franchise. I have one of the Ghost Recon games and read the first novel.

Ok, I figured out how to make it into a PDF. This one's foolproof!
