Well, if we get enough interest, sure why not. I'd be willing to host the game if nobody else wants to.

I'd host it too, if people were open to a Stargate Theme. I would need some time to work it out, but I already have a lot of things down.
If not I'm always up for playing.

Well as I said, if there's interest in a Stargate-themed game, give me a few days and I'll work it out.

I don't see how that's relevant.

Technically speaking, it's a gate that takes you to other gates if you know the coordinates of the gate you want to go to and the target gate isn't buried. But that doesn't sound as bitchin'.

Well they don't have a Universal Translator like Star Trek, so having all the cultures speak different language would have been correct, but really tiresome for the audience. It's a pretty illogical but better than the alternative.

Anyway, since there seems to be quite some interest, you'll hear from me in a few days. There are a lot of details to be worked out, because I don't want this to be just the classic Mafia with names from Stargate. It'll be a little different. :)

personally, i think it would have been interesting to use ancient egyptian as the galactic language, which the various characters could learn to speak to different extents as the show went on. especially seeing as it was such a major plot point in the movie.

True, but to do that they would either have to use subtitles or again switch to english and just somehow imply that currently Egyptian is being used, or else you couldn't understand a word (unless you speak ancient Egyptian yourself, I suppose). It's an interesting concept, but I don't see how they could have made it work.

I did have the film but the only copy that I could find was a Greek release, meaning that while I could understand the English parts, the Egyptian/Goa'uld parts were subtitled in Greek.

I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have.

Oh, it deserves a lot of love, but I did try to train my cat with commands in Goa'uld.  It failed because she's a cat, not because my Goa'uld isn't awesome.

(I still call her a shol'va every time she pukes on the rug, though).

The movie is awesome. I never watched the show, but I love dorky James Spader and that movie makes me happy. (Sci-fi, action adventure, and Egyptian(ish) themes - three things I love!)

I would totally join in on a stargate game.

I've thought about making another one, but I don't have any time for about the next month. I think I might try sometime in November though
