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

I'm looking at my roster, and I don't have enough to even make an offer.

Well I can't seem to offer trades at the moment and you aren't accepting PMs.

Not sure if I can get PMs here, post count and all. But try messaging me on the site and we can try and work something out. I may be able to make the offer if u can't.

Whoops, I missed that you had assigned them teams. But yes, they do need to register before I can connect them.

Hey Rain Man or CD. I'd it possible to add a message board on the site so that we can communicate and run smack? I know we can send each other messages, but a message board is always fun.

It's in the works. I have VB running on our new server home, and if I remember correctly I've figured out how to switch back and forth between VB and Sandox. But we won't migrate until late summer at the earliest because I there are several more issues to figure out before we go commercial.

In the meantime, all of the cool Sandboxers hang out on this thread:

Done.


Rain Man bestowed upon me Kansas City Fubars of League 2.


I filed paperwork with the league to have my team name changed shortly after the relocation papers were signed. Any idea when the pw hits the desk?
