Empire / Re: Game 5 Ended Early
« on: September 05, 2018, 08:30:16 am »
Since this is a year long game and there have been only 18 games since 2000.  I think it may be too early to declare a trend.

Operator error, and shutdowns due to DNS, IP, and hardware changes are more frequent.

And you remind me, I need to restart the other four expired games.

Empire / Empire Now On Groups.IO
« on: January 08, 2017, 12:43:59 pm »
It has been a couple of years since I discontinued the Yahoo group simply because Yahoo turned to crap.  I found a site called groups.io that behaves just like the old Yahoo groups, even older, it was designed by the guy that made onelist, the group service that got bought by Yahoo.  You'll find it at the site called empire@groups.io.

Empire / EMPIRE is Back
« on: August 04, 2015, 11:37:22 pm »
The original INVENT3K machine is back alive and kicking at INVENT3K.OPENMPE.COM, and the Empire games are running too.

As predicted all the games expired and they are all new games.  Standard game announcements will be made Tomorrow.

Suggestions / Is There Room Here?
« on: November 01, 2013, 06:39:35 pm »
Is there any room here for a migration of 300 or so users from a dissatisfied Yahoo group?

They're mainly looking to e-mail, and to be able to share their gaming files.

Empire / Now that "Texting" is Back ...
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:55:48 am »
Since "texting" on hand held devices are all the rage now.  Does this mean users can play Empire on a hand held device?  Does 'telnet' protocol even work on a hand held device?

(Or are the islands too big to display?)

Or is this thought too much like Floogle?
