Sumo Volleyball

Sumo Volleyball - online competition at its finest. Yep, Friday flash fun on Tuesday. For those of you who used to have ICQ, this game will be very familiar. Four different variates of play are offered. 1 on 1 is by far the favorite and the most fun, IMHO. One tiny downside, activeX based, and thus, pretty much IE only. There are also other games via the home page, of which Kung-fu chess is also very popular.

I have probably wasted more time playing these games than any other flash games combined. The ability to play against friends at great distance is the greatest draw.

Oh, and I've used firefox since it was in alpha stage, and the only time I've ever fired up IE in the last 2 years was to play these games.

Yeah, it's that fun.

I'm not sure that "IE only" = "one tiny downside"

So does the "!batshitinsane" tag mean "not batshitinsane" or is it really batshitinsane, or is this some kind of click language?
I can't find out for myself cuz it's IE only

ActiveX is like using a rotary phone that gives you Hepatitis C.

Please don't label this "Flash" -- it isn't, it's an ActiveX game.

This is hardly sophistry to me -- I can play Flash games on a Mac, I can't play ActiveX games.

I don't have anything useful to add here, so I'll just unabashedly second what everyone else has said so far:

I'm not sure that "IE only" = "one tiny downside" - Second
ActiveX is like using a rotary phone that gives you Hepatitis C. - Second
Please don't label this "Flash" -- it isn't, it's an ActiveX game. - Second!!

That is all.

I'm just happy to see the phrase "Friday flash fun" again. Seems like it's been quite a while.

The first time I have regretted having a Mac. I really wanted to see sumo volleyball. Damn.
