Hangafia - Game over - Perfect Town win.

The Hangafia

Darkness slowly fades. You awake to a very strange (at least for some of you) vision. The hotel is not what it was yesterday. Virtually every room has been damaged. Tvs smashed, food everywhere. Multiple bodies passed out, a few dead. The lobby looks like a bulldozer has been driven through it. Which may explain the bulldozer in the lobby.

Slowly everyone gathers in the lobby. Unsure exactly what has happened last night, or even necessarily which city this hotel is in, it takes a while for anyone to say anything.

"Well, that was fun, wasn't it?" Alan pipes up cheerfully.

"Shut up Alan," Stu immediately reponds, then closes his eyes in obvious pain.

"We just need to work out what's going on. And where is Doug?" Phil adds.

"heheh, classic Doug," laughs Alan.

"Well, I hope you enjoyed your Buck's party, Alan," Phil continues.

"More than that guy," Alan points to the disembodied corpse lying at his feet, which until now everyone had failed to notice.

In the standard response to such a finding, the group immediately agree to forming a lynch mob

The Rules (originally written by Vox and modified by pretty much everyone else)
Spoiler:
1. Do not talk about the game outside this thread.
2. DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE GAME OUTSIDE THIS THREAD. Spoiler any posts about the game in the discussion thread and DO NOT READ SPOILERS IF YOU ARE STILL ALIVE. You are still alive until I say you are dead. You may PM if and only if explicitly stated in your role description (all PMs must be cc'd to me).
3. Please stay (at least mostly) on topic.
4. Don't lurk through the whole game; if you need to drop out, TELL ME. Really bad lurkers REALLY PISS ME OFF. We have replacement players just in case real life gets in the way of your mafia playing.
4a. if you don't post in the thread for 5 consecutive days, you will receive a mod prod with 48 hours to respond. If you don't respond in 48 hours you will be replaced or modkilled.
5. If you aren't part of the game, please post in spoilers in the discussion thread for outside analysis. (*grabbing popcorn* is okay, just don't be too disruptive.)
6. Once I say that it's nighttime, do not post in the thread AT ALL please do not post anything of content in the thread. *sleeps* posts, etc, I don't care. Talking is fine. Just don't make analysis or accusation type posts.
7. If you die, don't say anything for the rest of the game except a simple, "Bah, you got me," which reveals no information.
8. You may not post verbatim or quote from your role PM. Paraphrasing is fine.
9. You may not edit your posts.

Hangafia Specific Rules:
Spoiler:
1. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas
2. All PMs must be cc'd to me. No exceptions.
3. I will be placing deadlines for most day and night cycles, these will be flexibly enforced if interesting discussion is happening. This is not an excuse to leave the interesting discussion until the day of the deadline.
4. Drugs are bad, mkay?
5. Don't drink the water.

Flavourblind and first.

So if I presume mod nepotism and the older competitors who were called back were offered snacky roles to tempt them then MasterOfAll, not in the sign up thread, probably took the most tempting.

Pretty hyped to play again, especially with some free time at the start of this summer. It's nice seeing many of the familiar names that used to play!

Long time since I've played, think I had to replace out of Amy's Surprise game, and that game happened in 2011! I've followed along a few mafia games in the meantime, but never too closely so I've probably forgotten a lot about playing forum mafia (not that I was particularly good in the first place).

I've seen the first movie, but don't particularly recall much of it, so basically have no idea about the flavour.
And you thought I was crazy...

*grabs popcorn*

[OOC]Mostly flavorblind. Half watched the first movie once.
Am working on a show (theatre), so have a lot to do weekends this month, but will try to be more active than I normally am. Tech week is this week, so I shall be grumptastic and sleep-deprived, but this is getting into information nobody really needs to know.[/OOC]

Spack brings up a good point to discuss... do we think that the elder states(wo)men were singled out for better roles? Personally it doesn't seem that likely, as once we figured it out we would just lynch all of them, but I suppose it is possible. And it would probably encourage them to come back for the game if they had interesting roles.

As it has been a question in many recent games, figure we should ask sooner rather than later:
How will tied votals at end of Day be dealt with?

Such ninja-ing.

I can't remember the last time I played forum mafia, but I think it was in 2008. Which is a pretty long time ago! Long enough that I remember some of the other older players but I can't remember their playstyle or what they are known for. So, Nebuduck, as far as I'm concerned you have a clean slate.

I'm completely flavorblind as well. I watched the movie, but really all that I remember is that there was a tiger in the bathroom. Can someone with knowledge of The Hangover post a list of potential roles? I think it would be helpful and would certainly get the discussion rolling.

According to Wikipedia, Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of "berries" from the Coffea plant.

And I would really like some.

I'm flavorblind, relatively new here, and never been in a game even close to this size, so this'll be interesting. I'll be assuming the roles were assigned randomly until I have a reason to beleive otherwise (besides, would the "good" roles be scum roles or town power roles? It seems like it'd depend on preference)

I'm totally not just confirming because we don't need to confirm.

Things I should mention:
I have not seen this movie, and I might try to watch it this week.
I'll also be pretty busy as things get closer to the 9th and 23rd, thanks to summer exams.

Perhaps someone who has seen the movie can clarify: are the Hangafia rules 4 and 5 themes from the movie? Also, from the wiki description, it sounds like Leslie Chow and his gang are the villains of the film, so that's probably our scum?

Well, first of all, I doubt that Dr Ug handpicked our roles. I don't know how things have worked around here recently, but back in the day we'd let RNG assign things.

Secondly, I *did* sign up in the sign-up thread. So, even if your reasoning was sound, I am not a proper representative. It seems to me that Sungura is the only player who didn't sign up there (Hi, Amy!) with the other reserved spot being given to MaJ, who had put himself on the replacement list. And perhaps Amy took a little bit extra convincing to play this game, but I expect it was of the "Please play and you know others will be happy to see you" variety instead of the "I'll let you be anti-town if you play" variety.

So, I've only seen the movie in it's entirety once, and that was several years back. But it was just on TV here (was that last night or the night before?) and I watched about 4 minutes of it, so I'm currently familiar with the scene where they get back to their hotel room and Mike Tyson is waiting for them. Not that I expect that will do me any good in playing this game.

Gosh. Back in my day, we tried that, but then found that nepotism worked better.

What do we think the setup looks like? My guess is 1 or 2 factions, a very healthy dose of wildcard roles (from what I remember of the movie, it's made for that), and probably fairly few vanilla players (why would you have vanilla players in an invitational with people who haven't played in 5 years?)

To me, the biggest risks are the new players. Because they've probably played recently. So might know some tactics, or something.

New players are clearly all no talent hacks. And since this is based off of the Hangover, the rules are clearly some variant of the Amnesia game that I ran. As far as flavor is concerned, I've seen the first movie, and am about to read the wiki entry that Van so kindly posted.

Man, that's one hell of a headache.

As it happens, I am coming into this completely flavour-blind. I've seen the trailers for all three films, but that's the extent of my knowledge about them. I have no intention of seeing the films, either, but I'll try to hop on the Wikipedia article at some point to get a small feel for who I'm supposed to be.

So on the meta of who's in the game, I will repeat that I am very excited to see so many names I recognise from trawling through old games, as well as from people who drifted away from Mafia but stayed active in other parts of these fora. It's also nice just to see a big game going again, although I know that means the first few days are going to be filled with lots of confusion, lots of wine (which I guess is what leads to a hangover, hey!) and more discussion than anyone can reasonably follow. Which is great.

One other comment on the player list - I am particularly happy to see Sungura's name snuck onto the list. I kind of half wondered if she was the one Dr Ug was referring to.

Now back to the game itself. I don't have any particularly useful information so far. I assume any investigative roles didn't get a Night zero, but one can always hope, right? In any case, I'll start flinging some baseless accusations once we've got a few more people around.

Ugh, I'm really bloody sick today, and I don't understand any oF the flavour really at all. (Well, I'm definitely a character in the movie, but I don't seem to be on that list, and a cheeky google says that I'm probably pretty minor??).

I'm just checking in to say I got my PM, I've found the thread, and I'm keeping an eye on things for now. I don't know most of these legendary players who are being spoken of in hushed tones, which in itself is a bit scary.

Anyway, this is just a quick egopost, so smoke me a kipper (or fry sardines, or boil mackerel, or whatever should please ya), I'll be back for breakfast.

I am super busy this week (Hosting a caver from the UK, this is the first time I've logged on to the fora since...last friday?) and I said I was busy until the 12th/13th, but I guess that was good enough to get a role? I have never seen Hangafia I had no clue it is a movie. Frankly I just saw some old faces had signed up and that excited me. I haven't played this in...four years? Frankly, I rarely pay attention to flavor in games which served well in all the games I didn't understand the theme to. It never seemed to really add anything in the end, people are scummy or they aren't.

/kick Nebuduck (just because, haha ah the old days of mafia on IRC)

I plan on keeping meta in mind for the players I used to play with. People change, but usually not that much.

I'm also willing to bet my inexperience with the good doctor's games is going to hurt me here. In the other three he linked I was vaguely familiar with the milieu, but in this particular case, I too have not seen any of the movies. I've heard lots of good things about them. Another thing I can only guess about: Do Ug's rules that seem like they're "flavor only" tend to affect gameplay eventually? How much would it benefit me to completely read through those games? I'd love to hear about that from any of the people who played in them, because I only have so much time to devote to this, and that seems like an awful lot of research.

Also, hi Amy! Any interest in going to Chicago this month? :wink:

I read through the Asylum Mafia, and had no memory of any of my posts, or deciding to pretend to think I'm Winston Churchill. Rereading myself was kind of trippy.

I think this one will be closer to a normal game than say the Paranoia Mafia.

Yeah I will admit I was a bit nervous signing up to a game by a mod I don't know. MaJ was a great mod so was OOTD, I'd play any game they put together. But like I said, in my experience, flavour is for fun, is tasty, but doesn't typically mean anything. Of course maybe things have changed since the Good Ol' Days.

What's going on in Chicago? I'm hosting the Brit caver until the 12th and I'm looking at needing leg surgery because stupid doctors keep saying there is nothing wrong with my leg but xrays and other data show that I managed when I fell to rock my own leg. Rocking cave packs is more fun than rocking legs. I'd love to get to MO for the post-convention campout from SEMO grotto, but that's probably not happening.

If I had to guess, it seems like Hangafia-specific rule #5, out of the flavor-based rules, seems the most likely to be a real rule, with 4 as a close second - "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" seems to be an unofficial tagline of the movie, so if any of the rules are solely jokes it would be that one. I'm going to run under the assumption that 4 and 5 have some in-game relevance that will either be revealed later or known only to specific people. I personally don't have any information about either of them.

In the other three he linked I was vaguely familiar with the milieu, but in this particular case, I too have not seen any of the movies. I've heard lots of good things about them. Another thing I can only guess about: Do Ug's rules that seem like they're "flavor only" tend to affect gameplay eventually? How much would it benefit me to completely read through those games? I'd love to hear about that from any of the people who played in them, because I only have so much time to devote to this, and that seems like an awful lot of research.

Didn't trust my memory from several years ago, went back and looked. Dr Ug does not tend to run simple, straight forward games, and there are usually layers upon layers. With that said, they were always a blast. Asylumafia was insane fun :D

I don't think his flavor rules tended to be super hints or anything - like, HP Mafia had "stay out of the forest" and I don't recall that coming up.

So ... I can't decide if this is a good move or a bad one, but I'm hoping it might prevent mud later: My role is not in the list of characters SPACKlick posted.

Personally, my first thought was that 4 was a South Park reference (Mr Mackey), but it could well have been in the Hangover movies - I guess we have to hope someone who is yet to post is familiar with the flavour! Actually I had dismissed (1,4,5) as just flavour when I first read the opening post, but I guess we can just wait for the mod to answer Minestrone's question to find out if the rules are related to some mechanic. I can definitely see some sort of role that involved dealing drugs maybe for #4.
And you thought I was crazy...

Three points I will give regarding the current discussions:

--Amy's playing *squee*

--I am of the opinion that the RNG is responsible for who got what, not Dr Ug. I figure that nostalgia is what was the leading factor in getting some of the old garde back. That being said, a game this large almost demands something more than just town v scum with maybe a SK thrown in. Interesting role mechanics, besides just more kills or investigations, could be people with roles looking for other roles (e.g. LunchMeat's Jane Austen game).

--I think treating the flavor as interesting but not relevant until contrary evidence crops up is the best policy (but I will be sticking to bottled water just in case).

Just tell me that nothing in the movie makes any flavor-sense for a cult to exist. Please. With 26 people, I literally cannot imagine anything more bad.

Then again, Dr Ug's HP Mafia had 20 players and a recruiting scum team. If you want a peak inside of his brain, these are his google docs for that game. It's worth noting that there are no vanilla players in that game.

Going into blatant theorycrafting here, with 26 people, we could have something like:
a gigantic scum team (7 or 8?), but that seems unlikely
2 small (3-4ish?) separate scum groups (Chow + ???)
a cult?? (wiki descriptions don't fit)
a midsized mafia (4-5?), with a couple SK-types (the tiger maybe?)

Also, maybe a guy with a one-shot mattress. Would love to see what that would do.

Hi all! I have seen the first two films, but it's been a while so I don't remember minor characters or anything. From the intro flavour:
Dr Ug wrote:"Well, I hope you enjoyed your Buck's party, Alan," Phil continues.
I'd say we're in the the third movie as the wikipedia summary says Alan gets married at the end of that film. Which means we can have characters from any of the three movies.

I think rule 4 is just referencing the fact that the reason they can't remember anything in the films is because they are drugged. I'd expect at least a couple non-town factions just due to the size of the game and the shifting alliances of characters in the movie. I can't think of anyone flavour-wise who would work as a cult leader but we could definitely have a SK.

Anyway, my assumption had been that flavour rules were flavour rules, and to be ignored. Will continue to do so until there's some evidence to the contrary.

How do we normally get games going nowadays? Back in the day, if I remember correctly, the best thing to do was to start FOS'ing (or even voting) for some inactive players. So, first one off the list that I haven't seen post anything...

FOS Carlington for being so inactive, and so high up on the list.

Just checking in, so I at least look like I'm being communicative, I'll see if I can find more to talk about in a couple hours at lunch, as I'm not supposed to post to forums during work hours.
