    HI everyone,

    Have you ever loved a board that had so little exposure that you ended up just having to see it die out? Or have you ever dug up an old board that looked like a blast, but you knew that starting a 5 player game would just take way too long? Or are you just someone who wishes to see a greater diversity of boards on this site? Well the Board Revival Group might be the perfect place for you!

    I am looking for a solid group of players to come together to get intriguing boards, of all types, more exposure. Every month a randomly selected member of the BRG will state which board he wants to give more exposure. Over the course of the month at least 3 games will get started with the support of the BRG. At least one seat in each game will be left open for someone in the outside community to join. The exposure for this board will then start from within the BRG but then trickle out into the outside community.

    If you are just focused on raising your GR or CPs as high as possible, then this might not be the place for you.  But if you are looking for a closely knit community that wants to purely have fun and test their competitive edge, then the BRG is perfect for you. In doing so you will likely find your new favorite map that you will now be able to climb the rankings on because of the resurgence of interest.

    I believe this group could be very beneficial to this site. There is a lot of talk of a major flaw with the site being the laundry list of boards that just collect dust now, even though many of them are quite fun and took a lot of effort in making.  I think having a diverse list of active boards that are a blast to play  will definitely help in the attraction and retention of new players as well as the development of the site. This group is a proactive effort that could actually be a lot of fun at the same time. 

    Although everyone is welcome to join, I want to especially invite board designers and veteran players who have poured out a lot of time and effort into this site. If you want to join or try it out just comment below and after a few weeks I will post the list of members and we can get started. Any comments or remarks are welcome, ALTHOUGH I DO NOT WANT TO TURN THIS FORUM INTO A DEBATE. IF YOU WISH TO DEBATE A TOPIC PLEASE START YOUR OWN FORUM.

    Whelp, I thought it was a good idea.

    It's a good idea, and I would be interested. There are a lot of boards on WarGear that I haven't played in a very long time (and some that I have never played). So count me in.

    I'm not a veteran player, and I'm very slowly trying my hand in design, but it'd be interested in joining. I am limited to 10 games at a time, but can usually join a new game within a day or so.

    Find a board you want to try, create the game and post the link here.  

    I'll probably join if it is a 3 day game -

    Yeah Kjeld, there are almost 300 boards. Many hidden gems no doubt. Which is more of what the point of this is: discovering and exposing great maps to each other and to the outside community. This is not so I can just fill games I like quicker. 

    You are most certainly welcome Cele Nica. Let me clear up my last post.  All players are definitely welcome to join. I mean I'm a new player myself and by joining you are helping expand our interactive community. 

    Amidon I am taking that as you are in 😀.

    This would be great and I (and a lot of others) would likely be in if they could be un-ranked public games..

    What if we started the month out with a couple of private matches for the group and ended it with one or two public matches for anyone interested?

    I'm in! The more I look, the more 'forgotten' boards I find.

    And there are some decent ones that have just faded away into the background.

    Abishai, you are clearly a force of good for this site. (10-player Ancient Isles - who does that? Someone awesome, that's who.) This idea nearly broke my self-imposed Wargear moratorium. As moral support, I offer a few perverse ideas for your group:

    http://www.wargear.net/boards/view/Escalation

    http://www.wargear.net/boards/view/Battlestar

    http://www.wargear.net/boards/view/Vertigo

    These all had a small following dating all the way back to before this site existed and all are twisted attack-heavy games. I know the random person gets to select, so this is really just a warning of what will happen when I eventually join your group :)

    Thank you for your kind words. I love vertigo, so I'm sure the others are great choices as well. Hopefully we will be seeing you around when this group gets started.

    I'll join.  I need 3 day time limits on games, just because of work requirements, but I'll definitely participate.   And I love playing un-loved boards.  And I second Hugh's suggestion of Escalation.

    Awesome! Glad to have you guys. We will definitely accommodate you guys with 3 day turn timers and if someone likes playing 1 day then we can always make multiple games.

    So once this group gets 12 members I say we can get started.  Right now we're at 8, including Amidon and Hugh ☺. This group is not going to be demanding. Im just encouraging peeps to join at least 1 game a month. So, that means we need 4 more! People will probably trickle in over time, so hopefully in a few months we will have closer to 20 members.

    In a few weeks my work load will drop significantly. I'll go back to premium and would love to be in.  =)

    I'm a man.
    But I can change,
    if I have to,
    I guess...
