Would you play a tycoon/collecting video game that is based on postal stamps?

Asked by poisonedantidote (21631points) January 3rd, 2011

If a flash game existed, say on facebook, that was about collecting postal stamps, would you play it?

Basic Game Premise:

You own a little shop that is seen from a birds-eye point of view. The shop is dedicated to the acquisition, collection, and sale of postal stamps.

The aim of the game is to build up a giant collection of virtual postal stamps, and to turn a profit. You can buy stamps, sell stamps, decorate and furnish the shop, and hire staff to help you.

Bonus Question: Have you ever played “farmville” or any other similar games on facebook? how often did/do yo play?

I play apps like crazy. I’ll admit it. I will try just about any new app, including one to collect postage stamps.
Whether or not I would play for very long would depend on how cool the stamps are. :)

interesting premise….I would try it to see if it captures my interest. Try some other objects like collecting coins or cheese dishes, or cheese for that sake. Just no jeffrey dahmer stuff.

Yes I do play similar games, but might get bored if there is no interesting twist to it.

Extra Info:

* Other players will be the people who buy your stamps, just like you may buy from them.
* Completing specific collections will unlock special items. (e.g. very rare stamp or display)
* Stamps will be based on actual real world stamps as well as fictional ones.

@blueiiznh I’ll make a note of it, so far all I have is a page of text with a rough plan and a couple of preliminary graphis.
