Games Domain Castle

The profile picture of the Games Domain Castle

The Games Domain Castle was a online lobby for Games Domain. It was very similar to the up coming FunOrb Central idea. Jagex helped make the Games Domain Castle however the website owners helped too.

Description Edit

The description for this read:

Castle GamesDomain

Castle GD, is a complete multiplayer games-suite! Set inside a 3D-rendered castle you can choose to play the other players from a selection of ten games. The games available are, Checkers, Chess, Battlecruisers, Quadlink, Reversi, MysteryMonster, Mahjong, Pairs, Crypt & Dungeon. Features amazing raytraced graphics, texture mapped 3d, chat rooms, league tables and more!

(Interestingly it was referred to as Castle GamesDomain, it was never called this again and was not set in a 3d castle, it was set in a central lobby. So the Games domain castle might have been a re-make of Castle GamesDomain. For more information on the first version visit Castle GamesDomain Also note it calls Dungeon Explorer just Dungeon and Treasure Crypt just Crypt. There was also no space between games and domain.)

If you have entered a 2 player game you will see a list of all the waiting players to the left. To challenge someone to a game just click on their name. Each player's rating is shown in brackets after their name. If a name is dark-red it means that you can't challenge that player because your rating does not match the options they selected.

You can talk to other people in the same room as you at any time. Just type in the message, press enter, and it will appear on the other player's screens. Keep the messages polite or your chat facility will be disabled. If you want to send a message to just one person you can use 'tell'.
