Oh God if I knew I was going to be the first to vote I wouldn't have picked that one
I really enjoyed building up my side towns in this way. Getting to max level takes so much longer than it used to. I took my time with my third town and started during ****, and finally got caught up recently around level 51. If you started a fresh town now I'm thinking you'd have to have serious dedication to meet annettemarc's challenge.
I'm totally game. Sign me up, hope we can get enough. Should we limit our friends/neighbors to those specifically participating?
LOL. I figured it would take some newbie pressure to get anyone to play.
Well, what the heck. I'll change the topic. We'll see how many we can get to sign-up and then get this race started.
I'd like some input on whether to use the walkthroughs. I agree that it makes it MUCH more realistic. Terrifying. But realistic. And it WAS, I suppose, my original intent. To see what the new player experiences without all the advantages we've had. Then I chickened out and thought well, maybe we could just see what the new forum-reading player experiences without advantages other than the advice and walkthroughs. (Which amount to -- ya' gotta admit -- a LOT of advantages.)
Do we want to play this as if we were just some poor clueless person out there trying to figure out this game? Or do we want to play WITH the help of the forum?
So the question might be how many of us are up for a REAL challenge, and how many won't play without Cliff Notes.
Hmmm. Maybe I'll make this a sign-up thread and put a poll in the first post to see whether people who sign up want the No-Walkthrough challenge.
Give me a little time to fix that first post.
