Ghost III Mafia Signup Thread

Postby Vytron » Tue Dec 01, 2015 9:33 pm UTC

Ghost III

This is a word game variant of mafia, where players have to guess a secret word or prevent a secret word from being guessed. Rules:

Spoiler:
I think of a secret word. This word is given to some players, but other players have to guess this secret word. Each player is given one of the following roles:
-Ghost: tries to guess the secret word. Knows who the other ghosts are.
-Villager: knows the secret word and tries to prevent the ghosts from guessing the secret word.
-Fool: thinks he's a villager, but receives a different word. If the ghosts guess the fool's word, the ghosts do not win. If there is more than 1 fool, they all receive the same fool's word. Sided with the villagers.

The secret word can be essentially anything, like water, earth, scared, tiger, Italy, kebab, you name it. The ghosts only receive the number of letters in the secret word.

Once players have received their role (in spoilered text), they have to give a short description of the secret word. Ghosts have to make something up. Ghosts can try to wait and read the other descriptions first before they think of a description of their own, or they can try to take a risk and give some general description right away, or they can try to pretend they are a fool. Villagers can try to give a very vague description, but not too vague since other villagers might think they are a ghost.

After each player has given a description of the secret word, players will discuss with each other who they think is a ghost. Like in mafia, players need to vote other players and can get one player lynched. A majority of votes will get someone lynched. If a villager or fool is lynched, a new round of discussion and voting starts immediately. Fools appear as villagers upon death. If a ghost is lynched, that player gets 24 hours to guess the secret word (they get only 1 guess). If the guess is correct, the ghosts win. Else, a new round of discussion and voting starts immediately. If all ghosts are lynched and they have not guessed the secret words, the villagers (and fools) win. If there is an equal number of villagers/fools and ghosts left, the ghosts win.

A one week deadline has been set, if 7 players don't sign up by then we will play with what we have at the time.

Sorry, after recent events in another mafia game, I don't have the soul to run this, so it's getting cancelled.

Feel free to become a moderator and run the game with 4 players, though.

I guess I'll mod it if nobody minds? I have never nodded before but this should be pretty straight forward right?

No prob. Can you maybe call it "Ghost III Mafia Signup Thread" ? That way I can create a new game thread to start the game in.

Game will start in about 28 hours from now, when I get home from work tomorrow. I will write some flavour!! I'm actually excited about getting a chance to do flavour.
