Speaking of, I'm still looking for another play for King Mafia 7. At this point I'm going to have to cancel the game due to lack of players if we don't get someone in the next week.

so I've been gone for a while, thinking about maybe coming back, and would like to know how the culture has changed in the intervening years regarding extentions, hammers, D0/D1, and presence of a N0 or lack thereof.

I don't plan on investing remotely as much time as I once did, and think the old extention-spam was a huge part of why games would die of inactivity. D1 in particular, with no N0, was always extended as many times as possible because there was no good lynch and the meta was to always-lynch, so people would extend to try to get useful data. it made one of the strongest scum tactics be to simply be quiet and wait for town to self-destruct as active town ate each other because that was the only place there was content to analyze. which led to bad gameplay experiences for everyone.
i rolled scum a disproportionately large amount of the time, and forcing myself to not post unless I absolutely had to was actually the biggest improvement I was able to get in my own gameplay, and a rule that, as either town OR scum, breaking would get me lynched fairly quickly afterwards.

So I am a bit invested in there being a N0, so that there would be night action content to analyze as opposed to the most active players devouring each other and then the game dying as there's only one active player left in the game anymore.

And having been in a game where last-minute voting shenanigans determined the fate of the game (I got a scum win from it and it was completely unsatisfying, I think we'd have won without the hammer, I was being cleanly bussed and was very confident that the next day's lynch would be a particular townie who had been acting scummy, seeing as my partners were looking REALLY good, and we only needed one more mislynch to win.), I'd really prefer to, ya know, not have that be a thing.

has anyone tried a game with automatic 24hr extentions for if the lynch result of the day changes (starting from when the lynch changes, not when it would normally end), but no normal extentions and fairly short days?

I'm firmly against allowing extensions except on discretion, for the reasons you give. I don't include them in any games I run now and it works fine.

I agree, extensions need to go away.

But weíre dead anyway, with the only activity being when one of the old guard vets runs a game. New ideas might spice things up a bit.

I personally canít deal with mafia anymore, I find it an exercise mostly in seeing how long I can be entirely frustrated at everything, and thatís usually not long.

Hi!

i came here because Icy tea impressed me with his play in the championship; if he had had more time to devote to the game, it could have gone quite differently! I'm very surprised to see notquitethere came from here as well, we obviously played together last year.
I'd be happy to sub into King of the Mafia 7 if that ever gets un-stalled.

Cheers!

I'd be interested in playing a game sometime as well. I can't say I know any more about running one than I ever did, but it would be fun to try this.
