you're reading this you're probably interested in downloading my latest
creation: a PC version of a fictitious libertarian weblog-themed board
game. Well, getting and installing it couldn't be easier, but first,
you'll need a few things:
The game is packaged
as an extremely small (less than 100 K as of version 1.0) zip file.
Either Windows Vista or XP will be able to open the zip file for you
automatically... then just drag the folder to wherever you want it, put
it on your desktop if you like. No installation process is required. If
you get sick of it, just drag it to the trash. You start the game by
running Bloggame.exe in the folder... the help option will allow you to
view all of the rules, but its pretty straightforward.
Notice for Mac and Linux users: As
you may or may not be aware... Mono will allow Mac and Linux users to
run some, but not all, applications written for the .NET Framework.
Unfortunately, their support for Windows Forms based applications is
still very hit or miss. I've tested the game with Mono 1.91 on a Mac,
and the results are... not good. The game loads, but it doesn't look
like its intended to. The player tokens vanish or show up in
inappropriate places, and the game crashes from time to time. Sadly,
there's not much I can do about it at this point, except to hope that
as Mono gets better (it has improved by leaps and bounds since it was
released) the game will eventually be more playable on it. In the
meantime, I recommend playing it on a Windows PC if you're able.
