Edit: Conversely, if votes cannot be changed or cancelled, the game is decided the moment one of the Good players votes, which probably isn't ideal.
Good point. Let me change how wincons work to make the game more interesting:

The game still ends once both Good players have voted. If a Good player has voted for the Evil player, they win the game. If the Evil player hasn't been voted for by both of the Good players, they win the game. If both of the Good players vote the Evil player, the Good players get a perfect win. If neither of the Good players vote the Evil player, the Evil player gets a perfect win.

Does that sound like a good solution? Despite having more
of a self-centered wincon, Good players are still incentivized to share information because it will still lead to them finding out who the Evil player is. Additionally, once one of the Good players has locked in their vote, there's no reason why they shouldn't try to help out their teammate.



Anyway, I made the discord. Just sign up there, and I'll send you your role(s).

Feel free to sign up for multiple games if you want to. I'm fine with running up to around 3ish games at once, since they're pretty low maintenance.

Man I wish there was a good way to comment on ongoing games.

Maybe there should be a spectator's quicktopic.

Or join and get modkilled immediately so you have access to Dead chat.

Yeah it would only work this way imo, having other people's comments available to players of an ongoing game seems too much interference to me.

I've had spectator's quicktopics before. They work ok, you just only give it out to people not in the game who specifically ask for it.

If you're talking about the only one running right now I wouldn't mind setting up a spectator's quicktopic if I was asked.

I hope Toady fixes the search function soon. Itís rather important in mafia and I worry that if he just gives up on it then it will hurt the health of the game even more.

 :P

EDIT: By that I meant, I too occasionally visit.
All my other mafia time has been taken up by IRL mafia and other IRL stuff...

Though I've seriously been spending weekends on a mafia game engine thingie.
It's been going slowly, but I am confident I ended up programming a really good action resolution mechanism.

I suspect Fallacy's game may be dead.

It is. I wouldn't mind doing a mass claim, if folks are willing.

Iím curious to see what everyoneís alignment and role were. I want to know how badly I was screwing over my team. Honestly, I got more people killed than the mafia.

Yeah...

I'm done there. Mostly due to a lack of enthusiasm on my part. You can claim roles and actions if you so choose.

Sheldon was a mistake.

Could someone join my mafia game as the second IC? If the game looks closer to running, I think people will be more likely to join.
