Collaborative Storytelling!

Great news for everybody that loves to read and write fictional litterature!

I’ve found a really good site for collaborative storytelling: CoST.LI – where writing stories together is great fun! The site is very new, and improving with new features almost daily. Currently it features a nice ranking system, quite similar to the reputation mechanism of sites like StackOverflow and its sister sites in the stack exchange community. There is also a nice toplist where you can compare yourself to others.

Best of all, it’s totally free (some google ads are meant to support it, good luck on that one!), and it uses OpenID for authentication.
Give it a try! Its multilingual, currently with free stories in English and there are some impressive ones in Swedish too.

So, what is Collaborative storytelling? Simply put: someone writes a story, and another one can continue on it. One of the most interesting features on this site is that each chapter can have several continuations, so there can be potentially an unlimited number of stories in the end.

New online game!

Hi! A close friend has published a new online multiplayer business strategy board game.

The name is a bit corny: Ape Broker, but the idea is really cool. If you remember the old windows game Oil Baron from 1992, Ape Broker is based on the same idea, but instead of being strictly turn-based, and requiring the players to share the same mouse and keyboard, the new addictive game has a bunch of new features, making it playable over the internet.

For the true fans, the author has even made it possible to gamble for real money, by participating in “ante” games, where the winner gets the other players’ anted amount.

Check it out at www.apebroker.com !
