I need a turn based computer game designer

Hello, I am not sure if this is the right place to post this. I understand that designing a board game is different than designing a turn based computer game. When designing a PC game you can, and should, add a lot more complexity.
I am a software developer with some spare time and I would like to develop a turn based MMO game. Either a fantasy RPG or a gangsters RPG/strategy game. I would like to team up with a game designer because I like to focus more on technology than content.
I have tried computer games forums and no takers so far. It's an indie partnership, no payment.

I don't mind if you are not experienced as long as you are talented and want to try computer game design.
If you would like to join me reply here or write me to

I'm interested

I'm interested. I'm not a professional game designer but I've got some ideas I'm working on and I have some software development experience as well as computer graphics experience. I'm in the middle of a relocation over the next several weeks, but after that (and a little bit during) I'll have time to work on something like this. I'm wondering if you're thinking web based RIA or strictly client based? (I'm a Unix/Mac user so I tend to favor cross platform development)

so you mean

that you want someone to write the game, and then you'll program it?

I was thinking that En Garde would translate well to a multi-player online game.

Saw your post and figure it would say NO PAY somewhere and that would be the end of that .. I read it and did see it and was about to move on when I remembered an old game I designed much like the old Vandal Hearts / FF Tactics games for online MMO... I have like 100 page design document already completed. I know databases and used to program unix/c well and own a game store and do other things in the indursty.

I'm not saying I have a ton of time, but from my base documents you should be able to create something to show you're commited to actually do something with it. As 99.99% of these type of inquires die out in a couple months.

Anyway, let me know if you'd like me to dig up the old doc. What languages do you know, what are you looking to program? Something like the current day play-for-free web browser games? I have a site that lists some of them at

Thanks for all replies.
The design position has been filled. I will program the client and the server. We are now looking for a 2D graphics artist. Any interested parties please send me an email.

I agree with this, understand

I agree with this, understand that designing a board game is different than designing a turn based computer game. Now I design mainly shooting games and puzzle games. I am also looking to add a lot more complexity in my game designing.

I constantly go to to play board and card games online.

That's where I first heard of "Hey, That's my Fish!", "Lost Cities", "Ponte di Diavolo", "En Garde", "Kahuna", and many others!!

They also have classics like Stratego, Connect Four, Battleships, Othello, Yahtzee, Mastermind, etc...

As well as the ancients: Chess, Go, Backgammon, etc...

They even have a two-player version of the Windows Classic Minesweeper!!

I would check it out if you're looking to play En Garde! I am currently in 2 different En Garde tournaments, and playing games on that website has really enabled me to refine the mechanics in my own games before I test play them!
