  • Locke was seen playing a board game, during lunchbreak, with one of his colleagues. The game appeared to consist of a Risk board and generic plastic army men, but is probably meant to strongly resemble Axis and Allies. ("Walkabout")
  • A similar game was played by Locke, Sawyer, and Hurley at the Barracks. This was the 2005 "library" edition of the game with triangular blocks rather than figurines of soldiers. ("The Shape of Things to Come")
Backgammon

  • Locke claimed Backgammon is a better game than Checkers, dating back 5,000 years. ("Pilot, Part 2") Locke was referring to the Mesopotamian Royal Game of Ur, which is also related to the Egyptian game of senet.
  • Locke explained the rules of Backgammon to Walt, mentioning that "There are two players. One side is light, and one side is dark." ("Pilot, Part 2")

Recurring themes

The metagame

Games as a metaphor

"I like to use the baseball metaphor which is, you can go to a baseball game and if you don't know a lot about baseball, I think you can enjoy it on one level as a casual viewer and you can enjoy it on a much deeper level as a regular viewer". -- Carlton Cuse in the "Lost Survivor Guide"

  • Operation: Locke told Jack "I'm removing the driest pieces to minimize our risk transporting it. You ever play Operation?"
    Metaphor: The removal of the dynamite was compared to the tenseness of the game of Operation.
  • Mouse Trap: Locke said "One by one, you build the trap - shoe, bucket, tub - piece by piece it all comes together. And then you wait 'til your opponent lands here on the old cheese wheel. And then if you set it up just right, you spring the trap."
  • Metaphor: Locke's description of Mouse Trap mirrored the con Locke's father orchestrated to steal Locke's kidney, and in a more general sense, the ongoing con of Locke by Jacob's nemesis, giving him faith in the island in order to occupy his body and kill Jacob.
  • Metaphor: Jack's bluffing in Poker was mirrored in his successful ploy to outwit Sawyer, and in Ben's ploy to lie to Locke
  • Baseball: Christian Shephard told Sawyer "You are suffering. But, don't beat yourself up about it. It's fate. Some people are just supposed to suffer. That's why the Red Sox will never win the damn series."
    Metaphor: The futility of Sawyer trying to end his own suffering was compared with the futility of the Red Sox trying to win a World Series. (see also: Irony)

The Numbers

The games have references to the Numbers:

  • The objective of Connect Four is to get 4 discs in a row on a plane of 42 holes.
  • Backgammon consists of two sets of 15 checkers. There are 4 sets of six playable spaces. A die has six numbers on it, the same amount of Numbers there are. The doubling cube has the numbers 4, 8, 16 and 32 on it (which is 23 backwards). The most number of spaces (without being taken out of play) a piece can move if the player is not yet able to take their pieces off the board (which requires all the player's pieces to be in the last six spaces on their side is 23.
  • Each player in chess starts with 16 pieces on an 8 by 8 grid.

Black and white

Several games are depicted or described as black and white:

  • Locke specifically describes the pieces on a Backgammon board as "One side is light, and one side is dark". The playable spaces on the board also alternate with one being light and one being dark. The dice are white and the dots on them are black.
  • The pieces on a chess board are black and white.
  • The crossword puzzles are depicted as a grid of black and white squares.

Producers' commentary

I feel like we're playing a chess game. In the first six moves, we've lost our queen and two bishops, and the audience is saying 'They are the worst chess players in the world!' What they don't realize is that we're nine moves away from checkmating you. If we lose, we lose. But that's the play, and we're standing by it.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Games room (player-owned house) article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

"Games Room" redirects here. For the minigame where players can meet up to play various games, see Burthorpe Games Room.
"Games" redirects here. For the various games-within-the-game that are available, see Minigames.
A Games Room containing various furniture suited for activities.
A games room contains five hotspots.
A games room with a hangman game, a stone pillar and a treasure chest.

The Games room in a player-owned house is a place to relax and play some games that rely both on logic and skills in RuneScape. This room can be created at level 30 Construction. The procedure will cost 25,000 coins. Only one games room can be built in a POH. Unlike the Menagerie, it cannot be moved. Players may also obtain prize keys (that are used to unlock prize chests) from winning games.

There are 5 hotspots available:

  • Combat stone - Two players have separate combat stones, and the first to break their combat stone is the winner. However, bits of the combat stone can fly off and deal damage to the player.
  • Ranging game - Various games that test the Ranged skill. The dartboard and archery target require the player to bring their own projectiles.
  • Elemental balance - The players must use the elemental spells (air, earth, fire, and water) to put the colour of the orb to white.
  • Storage - Contains prizes for the winner of the game.
  • Miscellaneous games - Various games that don't test a skill, and include treasure hunt, the jester, and hangman.
  • Exits

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010
(Redirected to Video game article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Jedi Academy series was a video game series introducing Jedi Master Kyle Katarn and his apprentice Jaden Korr.

The term "video game" is used to mean any game played on a video game console, any interactive game software, or a computer game where a video display is the primary feedback device.

Contents

First-person shooter

First-person shooter (FPS) games are video or computer games in which the player's viewpoint is from the character's perspective. Star Wars: Dark Forces and its sequels are FPSs, as well as Star Wars: Republic Commando. See Category:First-person shooters for more examples.

Flight simulator

Flight simulators are games that put the player in the position of piloting an air- or spacecraft against opponents or obstacles. The X-wing and TIE Fighter series, Rogue Squadron series, Starfighter series, and Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed are all flight simulators.

Real-time strategy

Real-time strategy (RTS) are usually computer games in which the player views multiple characters from a top-down point of view. In RTSs players usually command multiple groups of characters without actually fighting themselves. Examples of RTS include Star Wars: Empire at War and Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.

Role-playing game

Role-playing games (RPGs) are video or computer games in which the player views the character from a third person perspective, and makes choices that ultimately change the games' story. Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords are RPGs. They are similar in some ways to tabletop roleplaying games.

Massive multiplayer online role-playing game

Massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) are online games where players take on characters and interact with each other on a broad scale, often featuring a variety of environments and filled with non-player characters (NPCs) to provide a more realistic feel to the game. Examples include Star Wars Galaxies and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
