    So for the past couple of weeks, occasionally a bunch of folks would gather on teamspeak and eventually someone would suggest we all play a game.

    So far, I've gotten to see us play "Cards against Humanity", "Quiplash", and "Uno". And I must say, It's a lot of fun playing with this community. And I personally, would really like to see more of it.

    So! I would like to suggest we start doing community game nights. I can't possibly be the only person that wants to see Red and Joib go at it in quiplash or CaH!

    The frequency of these nights, and games we all play are to be determined. I don't see a reason to limit what kind of games everybody wants to play. And the timing of these nights could get tricky seeing as everybody lives in a different time zone.

    But hey! I'm posting this as a suggestion for right now to see if anybody would be interested in the idea. If everybody starts to approve of the idea we can move on from there.

    I think this idea could really benefit the MC server. I think it could strengthen our awesome community even more. It could even give some of our members something to stream for twitch or youtube, and continue to promote our server and community. And perhaps even bring in more folks and continue to expand our community.

    Oh, And we have a Steam Group!

    "http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SapphireDimensions"

    Perhaps the game nights can bring some more life into that as well!

    A Small Disclaimer:

    When we play these games.. it tends to be full of "Mature Content".

    It's Badger Rating is 18+.

    Now.. I won't forbid anyone under that age to play with us, just be warned, we cover just about all the bases. And Headphones are strongly encouraged. Eric learned two words the last time we played. Just Saying.

    And with that being said:

    I've decided that if I'm logged in the server, I'll try to be on teamspeak as well. Perhaps with that we can encourage more folks to be on teamspeak as well. (However, seeing as the teamspeak belongs to Joib, if he doesn't want us to try to overload his server I can totally understand.)

    For those that don't know: Teamspeak lets everybody talk with microphones instead of typing.

    And for those of you who havn't done the teamspeak.. I'll provide a link for the downloads here:

    "https://www.teamspeak.com/downloads"

    Anyone downloading will want to download the "client" for their operating system and 32/64 bit for their processor. (The one you want depends on what kind of computer you have.)

    (Oh, and "Overwolf" isn't necessary)

    To get to Joib's server all you have to do is click on the link on the top right hand side of the screen. (It even opens up treamspeak automatically for you if you click it.)

    Again! The Teamspeak belongs to Joib, and so long as he's cool with the idea of us using it, I'll try to be on when playing MC.

    (THANK YOU BTW JOIB!)

    Thanks to anyone that actually read the whole thing! I hope the idea is at least considered. And should anyone would like to tweak my suggestion, I wouldn't mind at all!

    Obviously i'm ok with people on the TS server :) The more the merrier... The server is capped to 50 slots, but i can expand it within minutes if it turns out we need more space :)

    Ok cool! The part I wasn't sure about is if there was a sudden surge of folks jumping on all at once. Overloading your teamspeak is the last thing I wanted to do.

    Time for an update!

    For a while now some of us have been doing other games through Steam, and now most of the time there's usually somebody on the teamspeak. And that being said, I decided to work on a video to showcase what we've done so far!

    The games in the video are: Golf With Friends, Dead By Daylight, Ark, and Minecraft. I tried to get music to go with most of them, hopefully I chose well. I'd like to know what you guys think about it.

    Be Warned tho..

    LOTS of cussing and salty language!



    I also thought about a description to go with the video. (I wanted all my bases covered when I used music)

    Video Description:

    We're the Sapphire Dimensions Community. We're primarily a minecraft server, but recently we started to play other games together. This video is a showcase of our community for our forums. Feel like joining us?
