Chain Game Announcement!


Hello! I hope you are all keeping well. It has been a great year so far for the Chain Game and as always I’m glad to see continued support from the community. The last few rounds have seen an increase in pace, and we’ve seen several returning players joining in with the fun. It’s incredible seeing the continued interest in our game as the Grand Theft Auto series continues to age, and I hope you have all been enjoying participating.

Temporary Chief Arrangements
I am going to be away between 20th July and 31st July.

Sorviknight will assume the role of Temporary Chief in my absence and oversee the running of the community. We will continue to run rounds as normal during this time and do not anticipate there to be any disruption. I am confident that Sorviknight will do a great job of managing the game and ask that you all offer your support by continuing to follow the rules and keep the game running as smoothly as possible.

If you have any queries or encounter any issues during your turns, please post here in the Chain Game Lounge or in the #general channel of our Discord Server. A member of the team will be able to assist.

Please note that the message inbox of the Chain Game GTAForums account, our social media direct messages, and our email address will not be monitored until my return on the 1st August.

For anyone wishing to contact me, I will not be completely unreachable during this time, but please note that I will be unable to assist with anything relating to the Chain Game and you will be directed to use one of the channels above.

Closing Words
We launched Round 73 of the GTA Vice City Chain Game earlier today and I look forward to seeing you all join in with what I know will be another enjoyable round.

If you’re reading this message and you aren’t a member of our community yet, I would encourage you to consider joining us. We welcome anyone interested in the Grand Theft Auto series and do not require you to be experienced with the series to join in with the rounds.

 

Thank you all for your continued support.

Chain Game Announcement!


I hope everyone is well. The Chain Game has seen plenty of action in recent months and I am glad to see so many of you joining in with the fun.

We recently completed the new second-fastest round of the Grand Theft Auto IV Chain Game, completing the round in the commendable time of 14 days, 20 hours, and 40 minutes with a team of 7 players. It is always fun to see rounds run at such a pace, and the excitement it generates is often coupled with the participation of new players, and those who have not participated in a while.

Thank you all for continuing to be a part of the community and I hope to see your continued support and participation in the rounds being launched in the months ahead.

The Chain Game Contributors
In August, we launched “The Chain Game Contributors”, a new topic dedicated to the people who have played a major role in making the Chain Game what it is today. We are always looking for ways to highlight contributions made to the game and this topic gives us a perfect opportunity do so and remind everyone that the game is the product of the dedication and support of our growing community.

The Chain Game Contributors topic replaces the “Special Thanks” section that followed the Players List in individual round topics. By having one dedicated topic, we are less restricted by the length of the post and can properly summarise all of the contributions made over the last 18 years. This also means that the links in the individual round topics will always point to an active, up to date list of the people who have made our game what it is today.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to check the topic out yet, please do, and on behalf of the Staff Team and the wider community I would again like to express my gratitude to all of the contributors listed for their part in the development of the Chain Game.

Upcoming Rule Changes for the Grand Theft Auto IV Chain Game
The next round of the Grand Theft Auto IV Chain Game will feature a rule change to the Assassination missions.

For those unfamiliar, the Assassination missions are unlocked following “Truck Hustle” and are given by “The Fixer” over a public payphone in Port Tudor. In recent rounds of the game, players have been allowed to complete only one of these missions, in addition to one story mission, and one random encounter.

During Round 11, the Assassination missions will be restriction-free, meaning that players will be allowed to complete as many as they wish during their turn. We are making this change following an internal observation of how these missions have been completed in recent rounds, and also due to the nature of the missions - each being quick to complete, while not updating the title of the save file, and with the percentage for completing the missions only being awarded once the entire strand has been completed. We are also hoping that this will increase the freedom that players have when completing turns.

We will be collecting feedback from players of the Grand Theft Auto IV Chain Game during the round for their stance on this issue and will look to make this a permanent change should there be an agreement. If you have something to say about this change but are not contacted, please let us know.

Temporary Chief Arrangements
I am going to be away between 10th September and 20th September.

During this time, Sorviknight will lead the Chain Game as Temporary Chief overseeing the community and all active rounds. As with previous absences, rounds will continue to run as normal, and we do not anticipate there to be any disruption.

As a general rule that will particularly apply during this period, if you have any queries or encounter any issues during your turns, please post here in the Chain Game Lounge or in the #general channel of our Discord Server. A member of the team will be able to assist.

Please note that the message inbox of the Chain Game GTAForums account, our social media direct messages, and our email address will not be monitored until my return on the 21st September.

Closing Words
This weekend we begin a new adventure in Grand Theft Auto IV and I encourage you all to join in with the fun. You should also keep an eye on the rounds we launch between now and the end of the year, there may be something special on the way!

We are also looking for more people to assist with updating the Players List during active rounds of the Chain Game. This involves monitoring the round and updating turn counts and player titles once turns have been completed. If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know. Please note that you do not have to be a participant of the Chain Game to assist.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Chain Game Announcement!


I hope everyone is well. It continues to be a great year for the Chain Game with an increased amount of participation during the rounds and both new and returning players joining us for the fun. Since the start of the year we have launched 25 rounds of the Chain Game which exceeds the total number of rounds launched in each of the past 3 years. I hope that you are all enjoying the game and will continue to join us through these final weeks of the year.

Updates to the Chain Game Staff
We are excited to announce that Bunneyko and Stahli are joining Chain Game Staff.

Bunneyko has been a member of the community since 21st October 2017 when she took her first turn in the Grand Theft Auto III Chain Game.

In the years since, Bunneyko has not only been an extremely active player, but also a considerable support to our work in managing the Chain Game. She notably managed The Chain Game Players Parking Event in the months leading up to Round 100 of the Grand Theft Auto III Chain Game, leading a group of regular players to choose a set of vehicles that would be included in the special starter save used for the round. In managing this event, Bunneyko showed great leadership skills moderating the discussion effectively and creating documents and screenshots of suggestions that were made to assist with the selection process.

In recent years, Bunneyko has regularly assisted with updating the Players List and Special Vehicles List during active rounds and has recently taken on a new project that assists with our internal documentation of the Grand Theft Auto III Chain Game. Since January 2019 she has also helped to moderate our Discord Server.

Today she joins our team as “Chain Game Officer”, a position that is very well-deserved for her outstanding contributions and support over the past 6 years. Congratulations!

Stahli has been a member of the community since 11th August 2011 when he took his first turn in the Grand Theft Auto III Chain Game and more recently returned following a long-term absence on 18th November 2021.

In addition to being an extremely active player, Stahli has regularly assisted with updating the Players List and Special Vehicles List during active rounds, and providing valuable feedback on plans for the Chain Game.

He has also been a considerable support towards our internal projects including the re-creation of the Grand Theft Auto III Chain Game’s Special Vehicles Lists. In the past 6 months, Stahli has re-created more than 80 lists which will greatly assist with our internal documentation and also allow us to repair the opening posts of completed rounds.

Today he joins our team as “Chain Game Officer”, a well-deserved position for the contributions he has made towards our community in the past few years. Congratulations!

Together, Bunneyko and Stahli join me, Assistant Chief Sorviknight, and Parik and thehambone in their new roles of Chain Game Officer to create a staff team that will continue to deliver an enjoyable experience for the community and work towards our many goals and aspirations that will result in development and growth for all aspects of the Chain Game.

I hope you will all join me in congratulating Bunneyko and Stahli on their new positions.

Closing Words
We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes on multiple projects that we hope will be appreciated by the community and look forward to revealing more in the coming months. As mentioned in our previous announcement, you should also keep an eye out for something special coming in the next few weeks.

Thank you all for your continued support as always, and here’s to an exciting new chapter ahead for the Chain Game.

Chain Game Announcement!


Hello! I hope everyone is well. As we approach the end of the first quarter of 2024, I would like to thank everyone who has participated in the Chain Game so far this year, or who has supported us as a member of our growing community.

So far this year we have launched 10 rounds – 3 for Grand Theft Auto III, 3 for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, 3 for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and 1 for Grand Theft Auto IV – and have seen a range of both new and existing players join in with the fun.

If this level of activity continues, we could well be looking at another record-breaking year for the game. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Chain Game community and hope to see you all continue to show your support in the months ahead.

Temporary Chief Arrangements
I am going to be away between 20th March and 31st March.

During this time, Sorviknight will lead the Chain Game as Temporary Chief overseeing the community and all active rounds. He and the team will ensure that there will be no disruption to the game throughout this period, continue to launch new rounds, and regularly monitor currently active rounds for any issues that may arise.

I would like to remind all members of the community that if you have any queries or encounter any issues during your turns, please post here in the Chain Game Lounge or in the #general channel of our Discord Server and a member of our team will assist. Please note that the message inbox of the Chain Game GTAForums account, our social media direct messages, and our email address will not be monitored until my return on the 1st April.

I am certain that Sorviknight will do a great job, and that I am leaving the community in safe and capable hands.

Closing Words
As I write this announcement, we are currently running rounds for Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas. We are always looking for new players and if you are reading this but are not yet a member of our community, I would like to invite you to join us for the fun by taking a turn!

Thank you all for your continued support.

GTAKid667, Chain Game Chief
