Over a year ago I posted about a site where I used to play Stratego (and other games)

 

It was called "The Zone"

 

I went back and searched and found the post but I guess it has been dormant for so long, I can no longer respond to it and bring it current.

 

 So once again, I'm looking for former "Zone" players. My Zone name was blkdog2.

 

Here's a few names that I recall from "The Zone"

 

Darth Remark

Saad Mohammed

jerry (from Australia)

Marshall Hal and Marshal Dave (brothers)

Mobay99

Fog_of_War

kent ( plays here as Kentinator)

jonlynfo (same name here)

Pale Horseman

General High

polarbear

Lonello

tableplay

 

 

Any other Zonies here?


Wuf!

Correct. It went dormant. The last post to it was July of 2014. You've let it sit just a little bit! :)

We moderators can both post to and reopen threads like that. But by and large when something has been quiet that long, it's good to just begin again.

Hoping this brings this thread back up... Still looking for old "The Zone" players. We had quite the friendly group of people back in the day. You picked who you wanted to play against. everyone met up in one chat room, and people actually chatted! I know, crazy right?

 

I actually created a 2nd account there....."The Speller"

 The reason I did this was, it used to drive me crazy when people would type  t-h-e-r-e, when they meant their or They're.

I wanted to correct them, but I didn't want them to get mad at blkdog... so The Speller took all the heat.

 

One night I started correcting this one guy, and the more he typed, the more mistakes he made, and the more I corrected him, the madder he got.   He would type something like "Why are you hear?" and all I would type is "here" and wow did he get mad.

 

Eventually, I fessed up. Good times

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

You missed 'their' and that was your biggest gripe. I'm disappointed.

As you should be.....and though I was in a hurry... I'm so ashamed.

 

sometimes I think I'm a bit dyslexic and may have read it as "over at their zone", which of course makes little sense.

If you're referring to the MSN Zone that would be a blast from the past...used to play Age of Empires II on that site in the 2002-2006 time frame. Good times.
