looks a little like Scorched Earth multiplayer–cool!


#3

I wasted a good 30 minutes on that last night. :slight_smile:


#4

I’m way better at that game than I have any right to be.


#5

oh wow! This was my first thought and I loved that game! Although the version I played on the good ol’ Apple IIc was much more raw than what is in the wiki article. Now I’m wondering if that was an early version and/or a different title??


#6

There’s no nonsense: as soon as the page loads you’re assigned a name and thrown into the slowclap-worthy action.

Action.

Golf.

Something I’m not seeing here?


#7

It is very difficult to tell which ball is you when a lot of people are playing.

Is something I would totally expect somebody who wasted their precious time on playing this to say.

But not me.

Obviously.

Ball bounces out of hole and doesn’t count as sunk. BS.


#11

Doesn’t count in real golf, either. Verisimilitude!

Also, if any of you were playing just now and got owned by ANGRY WEDGE… It was me! It was me the whole time!


#12

Is it even possible in real golf? The bottom of the cup is deep, pretty energy-absorbent, and somewhat funnel-shaped.


#13

I had 3 land in the cup and still not count until I “putted” again.


#14

Oh sure. Not on a putt, where it would just pass over or lip out if it was too fast, but balls can definitely bounce out of the hole, even with the flagstick in.

I play about once a year as a concession to my father, and even with that limited experience I can tell you that if it is possible under the physical laws of the universe, it will eventually happen with a golf ball.


#15

There are a LOT of things possible under the physical laws of the universe that I would not want to happen to a random golf ball. Proof that this “sport” needs to be destroyed as soon as possible.


#16

I think we should set it on the ground, hit it with a long stick, and hope it ends up in a hole somewhere.


#18

I love playing golf, but I stopped years ago because golf courses are such an ecological waste.
