What are "concept games"? What makes a game a "concept game" as opposed to a normal game? Is having new roles enough to qualify as a concept? Does it need a certain number of new roles or a % of new roles?

I'm just trying to see if we can come to some kind of agreement on what is and what is not a concept game.

It's the concept that I don't care about the list
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

There is no such thing as a concept game; if you want to try a small concept game, get on the list. If you want to try a large concept game, get on the list.

It's just bullsh!t used by people who don't want to wait.

Concept games are supposed to try new themes that deviate from traditional mafia. Technically I think my concept game would apply, even though the premise of concept mafia to skip the list is kind of retarded. As askbob said - sometimes people just don't care about the list. People coming up on the list are Kahvan (who hasn't played mafia in forever), xxdarkxx (who hasn't played and when he does sign up just stays completely inactive and is a burden cuz he needs to be replaced in EVERY game), rogue (stfu), FREEDO (who I've never played with in my life -- and I've played in almost every game), feverish (who only really mods and doesn't play, and that's not fair), etc. So I'm not gonna play in any of these games and more from the list. In the meantime, if others want to host games on the side I will play in theirs if I'm interested in the theme or whatever.

I think the people on the list SHOULD get to host and the list is cohesive; however, I'm just choosing not to play in theirs and I don't see why I shouldn't be able to play in another game that's being hosted simultaneously. People can boycott any games they want. Meanwhile if there's interest in them, I don't see why they should be stopped...? The only thing that sucks is people playing in multiple games. I recently had the same role in 2 games and was mafia with the same people in a few games and that was confusing. But I've learned my lesson and won't sign up for that many games at once, though it's up to the individual.

he probably just enjoys mafia but doesn't want to play. i remember him saying it was very time consuming before and i suppose it is.

Because a lot of people prefer modding to playing. I know Korashk does, and so do I -- yet we play in other people's games to help them come into fruition. It's not that it's "unfair" so much as seems almost like he's not paying his dues, so to speak. Again this is just my perspective. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything and I bet feves game will be awesome. If it's before May 2 I might even play in it.

i really don't care the game or the mod as long as there's a game. and variety is fun too :)

so i suppose a list's really not too bad an idea. but if someone comes up with something i think might be interesting while some other person from the list also has sign ups i might have to go with my interest :)

I hate playing compared to modding. Playing is annoying because you have to rely on dumb teammates lol. Modding is fun because I like coming up with balanced games. The planning is the fun part for me. I'm a Labor Studies major with an emphasis in management lol I prefer managing things :P
