How to Play Uno

Each player receives 7 cards with the remaining ones placed face down (virtually) to make up a DRAW pile. The top card of the DRAW pile is shown to begin a DISCARD pile. The first player has to match the card in the DISCARD pile either by number, color, or word. For example, if the card is a red 8, the next player must play a red card or any color 8, otherwise the player can play a Wild Card. If the player doesn’t have anything to play, they must draw a card from the DRAW pile. If they can play what is drawn, they can play. Otherwise, play moves to the next person (pass).

Channel Rules

  1. You must follow the rules of IdleChat’s Terms of Service.
  2. Some Trash talking is okay but don’t let it get out of hand.
    1. If you won’t say it while playing with your mom or grandma it doesn’t belong in #uno
    2. If you don’t want someone to say it to you don’t say it to other people.
  3. You’ll get 3 warnings, then you will receive a channel ban lasting 1 day.
    1. Each ban after will add 1 day, so the second time you get banned you will be banned for two days.

What Do these mean?!

[D2] Draw Two Cards – When this card is played, the next person to play must draw 2 cards and his/her turn is skipped.
[R] Reverse Card – Simply reverse direction of play. Play left becomes play right, and right becomes left.
[S] Skip Card – The next player to play loses his turn and is “skipped.” Mighty clever.
[W] Wild Card – This card can be played on any card. The person playing the card calls any color to continue play.
[WD4] Wild Draw Four Card – This is the best, meanest, most sneaky card to have. Not only does the player get to call the next color played, but the next player has to pick 4 cards and his/her turn is skipped.
There is a hitch, however (of course): you can only play this card when you don’t have a card in your hand that matches the color of the card previously played.

#werewolf

Posted on Posted in IRC Network

Werewolf is a variant of the party game Mafia. In summary, the objective is to eliminate members of the opposing team. At the start of the game, players are privately assigned roles as a wolf, or villager (all unknown to others). At night, the wolves select one victim to kill, and when the sun rises, villagers must persecute (lynch) one person they believe is the wolf with a majority vote. This is a game of trust, and deception, as no one can be certain of the roles of everyone else. The game continues until there are the same amount of wolves as villagers (wolves win), or all the wolves are dead (villagers win).

Server Restarts

Posted on Posted in IRC Network

Recently you may have noticed that IdleChat has had a few server restarts in the last week or so, We’re sorry but there is nothing we can really do about them. Most XEN hosts are restarting their hardware for security updates, you can look at the email we’ve received from one of our hosts below.

Hello,

Linode recently received several Xen Security Advisories (XSAs) that require us to perform updates to our host servers. In order to apply the updates, hosts and the Linodes running on them must be rebooted. The XSAs will be publicly released by the Xen project team on March 10th, therefore we must complete the updates before that date.

These updates are required to protect the security and safe operations of not only our infrastructure, but yours as well. We understand that a disruption with such limited notice is inconvenient, and we hope you understand that these measures are warranted due to the severity of the XSAs.

…….
(Some information has been removed)

Before March 10th we might experience more restarts. If you have any questions or concerns you can always join #help
