Sandbox football is gearing up - room for new owners.

Hi all,

For those of you who haven't participated, our Sandbox Simulations football game had a good initial test, and we're gearing up for Season Two now. We have some openings for new team owners, and the current leagues will be free forever since we're still beta testing.

The league works like this:

1. You get a team. Since we're in Season Two, you will be hired to run an existing team as coach/owner.
2. The teams currently have their end of year rosters from 2011, so you'll be able to do a fair bit of rebuilding. We'll hold the 2012 rookie draft and a veteran free agent acquisition, and then we'll conduct a season. You'll build a full 53-man roster.
3. The seasons are just like NFL football. You'll develop a general offensive and defensive philosophy and game plan for your team, and you'll deal with lineup shuffles as players get injured. Each week you'll get a play by play to see how your team fared.
4. The season is played on an accelerated basis so we should be done with it before the real NFL training camp starts. At that point we'll hold a 2013 rookie draft, and you'll be able to pick up veteran free agents over the course of the real NFL season.
5. Repeat as desired.

It's quite fun, actually, and the game engine works superbly. It's quite enjoyable to pull up the play by play and watch the game unfold, and to grumble as you have to shuffle lineups when injuries occur.

We'll be going commercial with the game at some point soon, but the two beta leagues will always be free. You'll be like George Halas with the Bears - at some point these franchises will be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.*

So if you're interested, let me know here and I'll assign you to a team. As with the real NFL, you don't have control over the team you inherit, so your challenge may be maintaining a powerhouse or more likely rebuilding a team that was managed poorly - you know, like the Chiefs.

* - Financial performance not guaranteed.


Here's the thread that started it all: http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=248221


If you want to play,

Those who want to play need to:

1. Post in this thread and we'll confirm whether a team is currently available.
2. Register on http://sandboxsimulations.com using the access code: 6Lanier3
3. Follow the registration procedure until you get to the screen where you select your team name. STOP HERE WITHOUT PICKING A TEAM NAME.
4. Once Rain Man assigns you a team, and you have completed through step 3, PM cdcox or post in this thread and cdcox will connect the existing team with your user account

Whoops, we gave your team away to EagleRob. I'm going to let Rain Man sort this out when he checks into the thread again.

Okay, my train is landing or whatever trains do. I might be taking my wife out for a Mother's Day dinner and then I'll get on this.

My train actually broke down. It was kind of exciting, especially sing it only lasted for about ten minutes. And I might have seen a herd of elk, but they were pretty far away on a big ridge and could have been deer, bighorn sheep, or mountain goats.

My train is now stopping to pick up a "private railroad car". A private railroad car? What does that mean? I'm envisioning Wild, Wild West.

Keep trying to get on but I'm at the screen where it says to name my team and its location. Now either I haven't been assigned a team or I'm doing it wrong. Help please.

I'll take a team. Maybe that'll get me posting on CP more, I've turned into a lurker since the survivor game.

You haven't been assigned a team yet. Hang on for a sec; I'm on the case now.

I have a nice solid midwestern team for you that has great tailgating. You'll get the Topeka Tyrannicide in League 1. They went 5-11 last year, but they have some good talent.

Good QB, good RB, good LT, you've got some building blocks. You will be taking over the Cedar Rapids Angry Clam Hammers in League 1.

For those getting teams from this point on, I'll ask you to keep an open mind if someone approaches you in the next couple of days and asks you to trade teams because you have their original team. But it'll be your call and it's your team.

Mrroandro, your team is ... the Chula Vista Cripplas! A League 1 team, Chula Vista went 6-10 last year, and their strength appears to be on the lines, along with a deep WR corps.

California is a big state, but you can go even bigger. Envision sweeping plains. Football factories. Massive waves of illegal migration. Think (sweeping arm gesture) Texas.

Your team is the Round Rock TambaTornados in League 2. A team run by a charismatic Texas quarterback who has a little bit of Hollywood in him.
