    *This would be a great feature for the clubs scene, a board that 3-6 players a side can participate in.
    *Able to select Team names at the set up of each new multiplayer game.
    *Team captains able to make changes to the teams if players stop moving.

    Currently we have a club forum game similar to this, but if it was a feature of the site would save a lot of work, and eliminate accidental moves.

    How do the extra players participate? By voting for a move and the move with the most votes get played? Or is it something like players alternating turns?

    Each player moves in turn, and makes his own selection.

    Doesn't seem like that would be popular enough to justify development time.

    So your the judge of what would or wouldn't be popular?

    Honestly everyone that did join in our private forum game (Germany v Australia) has enjoyed it very much, Its a nice change from the norm, great to be part of a team, and everyone adds their own character and style to the game to make for a very interesting game.
    And because its played in the forum all the cheeky little comments between moves makes it all the more fun.
    However the problem with playing it in the forum is all the extra work the team captains have to do and their is the chance of accidently moving in the game also.

    This option would offer something extra for club members. Helps lower rated players by participating along side higher rated players.
    On the note of popularity a number of clubs already run something similar.

    Yes, I am. We all are. That's one purpose of a forum: to express opinions on things.

    I'm glad your forum members have enjoyed your team games. I just think it would be easy enough to play the game via forum posts. Integrating that functionality into RHP's interface would take major development time, and frankly there are more important things that could be done. RHP has only one programmer, so prioritization is important.
