Unless you're using the famous TikTak's Gambit... Grin
Not the Gambit!!!  Shocked

The way you put it, Frungy seems like Mornington Crestcent. Tongue
That game sounds like a lot of fun. How do you play it?  Grin

Never mind, I found a JavaScript version here. Perhaps we could inquire if the code is open source, and if so, we could easily adapt it to the UQM universe.

Or not.

Maybe a precursor were just like "Hey I built this mushroom thing, it can traavel between plaaanets!" and the others were like "Yaaaay!" and then they all deliriously clapped their hands and giggled like little schoolgirls.

Hey! I just figured out how to make a frungy game.

So, you start a franchise. You hire players for various positions with bizarre names, keep track of their statistics which you can't quite figure out what they mean, and so forth. Each time you start a franchise, the relevance of the various statistics -- and even what the statistics ARE changes, so you have to figure out afresh what a winning team looks like.

What do you think?

For example:

PotKop (Pik)
Loop average: 3.9
Time to Defractate: 3.2 sec
Total passing (from/around): 16/312
Lesser Wiffles: 1
Greater Wiffles (abridged): 0 (1)
Augments (reversed): 30 (2)
Intractations: 3
~~~
Fielded as: center mid-flogsetter
I come out of lurking for a second to say this is brilliant! Infact, it's the sort of minigame that I could write a little C/C++ program for a little project I'm wokring on.

This sounds like it has awesome potential.
IDEA: Frungy message board?
A  Frungy message board! We could play this wonderful sport! Then, we could brag about them to our friends and confuse them Cheesy

take the rules from something like baseball or cricket, slap in a good selection of mornington crescent rules, concoct a huge wodge of other random rules, and let's play!
