  1. A game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts tonight at 5:30 PM Pacific or when two or more people show up. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. Please ask questions if there is any problems trying to connect or even how to connect. Each question has a total of 60 to 90 seconds to answer, depending on number of required answers. A question is split into two parts. The first part is 25 to 35 seconds, and players get one line to submit as many answers as required. Whoever gets the correct answer(s) gets points, and the first player to post all correct answers gets control and an opportunity to guess a letter in the puzzle. If no one gets the question right, the point value cuts in half, and a second 35 to 55 seconds is given for players to post as many lines as possible until someone gets all answers right or until the buzzer sounds, whichever comes first. Control and letter guess opportunity is not given if anyone gets it right.
  2. I'm going to try something different. I'm going to try for a game tonight at 5 to 7 PM Pacific, 8 to 10 PM Eastern if two or more people show up. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. This time, I'm going to go over a part of how the game is played. The main part of the game is, of course, answering trivia questions. Solving puzzles is a chance for players to earn extra points, and I think it makes it more fun. One aspect of the game is that players will choose the category and level of the questions. Why? Gives them . . . control, I guess. I'm not sure why, but that's the way it's been done, even when I had the game back in the 1990's. The game has six categories: Bible, Book of Mormon, Church History, New Testament, Old Testament, Wild, and random (?). The Bible category has New Testament and Old Testament questions. Some questions may not fit to either testaments but both. Wild questions are questions that deal with the church but do not fit the other categories. The random category is a pick from the other categories. Random is not counted as a category. The questions have eight levels. Well, nine if you count random. The levels are a type of question asked, not its point value. Levels one through four require one correct answer; levels five and six require two; and levels seven and eight require three. Some questions are multiple choice (one, two, five, and seven), while others are not (three, four, six, and eight). Now, I'm going to ask a level eight question as an example: "Book of Mormon: Which three of five books has one chapter?" This one is probably an easy one, but I won't post the answer here. Whoever comes to play the game will not only get the answer but can actually submit an answer before the game starts. Whoever is right gets the question's point value. I'm also not going to mark it as used. I hope to see you there. Since school starts Thursday, I will only be able to offer games on Sundays.
  3. If two people or more show up by around 5:30 PM Pacific, 8:30 PM Eastern Sunday evening, a game will take place. The game takes place on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. If there are any questions or problems, please ask here.
  4. Just a reminder that LDS Trivia and Puzzles starts tonight at 5:30 PM Pacific, 8:30 PM Eastern on DALnet in channel #lds_trivia. For more information, there's a post I made on Thursday in this category. If there are any questions about connecting to the game, please ask questions in that post.
  5. In my ward, a lot of the youth play video games. Xbox, Playstation, PC, you name it. We play all kinds of games, from Guitar Hero/Rock Band to Halo. We do occasional parties where video games are involved, and one of my fellow deacons owns a variety of vintage arcade games. Anyway, I find that enjoy playing certain games that my parents don't seem to like. For example, I love playing Doom, Quake, and the Halo games. I also play a little Modern Warfare every now and again. But my parents do not like these games. "violent" and "evil" and some words used by them to describe the games I play. I know for a fact that a Mormon, Sandy Peterson, was one of the creators of Doom and Quake. Anyway, I just wanted to get some opinions from other Latter Day Saints. Are some of the games I play bad? I am not offended by the violence, and I despise games with sexual content or heavy swearing. I just find first person shooters very fun.

    Hello all!

    Just signed up and am now doing the whole intro thing. This looks like an excellent forum for sharing our interests and beliefs as they relate to the church and the gospel. I was "born into" the church. My parents became reactive again just about a year or two before I was born. They lived in Alaska at the time. I really wish I could remember that, we moved to Idaho when I was 5. Oh well, someday I hope to go back to Alaska and tour around. Since then I've lived in Idaho, Utah, and Nevada. I'm currently working on a PhD at Utah State University, which I hope to finish soon. I've been in school forever it seems. My wife and I have 5 wonderful children who keep us super busy. We love to see them learn and grow. It's great!! One of my passions is board/card game design. I love creating new ideas for board games, trying them out, refining them, and over and over again. Recently I have been focused on LDS/Mormon themed games. I think that games based on the gospel can provide a great teaching and learning opportunity, especially with children. Anyway, I find that there really aren't a whole lot available right now. So, I decided I'd like to help change that. I've got a blog where I talk about such things: Mormon Game Design. It's a lot of fun writing about these things and finding out what others think. I really enjoy it. I'd love to get a group together on here that are interested in games. Any way of connecting with others and sharing ideas, it's fantastic! So, there's the "what about me and who I am." Mike

    Forum for Games

    I posted a poll about this over in the polls section, but practically no one has voted. So, does anyone think there should be a forum for games here on LDS.net and why?

    New Website!

    Hey everyone! My name is Shaun. I'm working on a website called My Mormon Culture So far it just has lots of widgets but they're all relevant and fun. I think you'll enjoy! I made the site to help fund my college tuition as I can use every cent I can get. I just got the site online yesterday so it's still a very new site, but I'd appreciate it if you all gave it a look and maybe even bookmark it. Check back often for new items! Thank you much and enjoy!
