PREFACE

I will not begin this game until one of the existing games ends or until both are about 2/3rds of the way done. I hope that this game fills up, and I hope that everyone who signs up has fun.

The way this works is that there are 6 thematic options for players to choose from. If you sign-up for the game, you sign-up for whatever option ends up being selected. So, please be ready to take on any of the options below--I think they're all fun, though some are more ambitious than others, from my POV.

When you sign up, you can vote for which option you want; you have 2 votes that you can split between the choices (give all two for one, or one vote for two). Furthermore, depending on how many people sign-up, not all options will be able to be voted on. If we only get 15 people, only options that accommodate that number of people can be selected. If there is a tie, I will just choose which game will be selected.

I'll go over the games' rules in the DP OP at the onset of the game--the rules will be similar, though not identical, to the rules I've employed in prior games. I will now review each of the six options available; hopefully they seem appealing.

OPTIONS

Option 1: Magical Creatures Mafia

The games has a semi-open set-up. By this I mean there is a list of roles and flavors given at the start of the game, and that all players will receive a role and maybe a flavor from that list. All roles are pretty standard, and can be easily researched on MafiaScum. All magical creatures can similarly be researched with a 10 minutes internet search--my goal is not to be overly confusing. There maybe some slight twists in the game, but the emphasis there, IMO, is on "slight." If you're looking for a standard, classic, mafia game, this one fits that description.

For this game, I am looking for between 15 and 17 players.

Option 2: Wildlife Mafia

This game is, fairly clearly, about wildlife. Particularly, every character will be a living, non-human organism. Most roles are standard, traditional roles. I got a bit more creative and out of the box here with the twists. I am confident that it's balanced and that this should be a fun, non-confusing game. Frankly, I had a lot of fun thinking up role justifications for each character-role pairing, lol. All animals should be easily researched on Wikipedia, and so the theme itself shouldn't be too out-there either.

For this set-up, I am looking for between 15 and 16 players.

Option 3: Literature

This game of mafia should hopefully expand your literary repertoire. Role justifications will takes the forms of quotations from specific pieces. I will not confirm whether it is the piece or the author that is the character--you'll find out once the game begins. This game has twists designed to give players greater freedom in the game space, and some of those twists have been inspired by games I've seen or participated in, so I know they work. Again, this should be too twisty, but it's intermediate. I think it has enough variety to keep things interesting without going overboard.

For this game, I'm looking for 16 players even.

Option 4: YouTube Mafia

The name speaks for itself. Everyone will receive a link to a youtube video as their character, and a role(s) followed by a brief role justification. This is one of my twistier options, and should definitely pose some interesting challenges to both sides. Personally, I think this is one of the funner set-ups I have, but the roles are not intended to be standard, and most won't be found on MafiaScum. This is also the largest set-up I have, so whether it's votable depends on the number of people who sign-up to play.

For this game, I'm looking for 17-20 people.

Option 5: Surprise Theme

This theme will be revealed to the players only once the DP begins. Rest assured, the theme is easy and straightforward, if a little ironic. The roles are mostly standard roles and most can be easily found on MafiaScum. This game should be fun for people who like the traditional set-up and who aren't really into complicated theme analysis.

For this game, I want 15-16 players.

I'll post the sign-up sheet in a second. If you find even one or two of these options appealing, please consider signing-up. Thank you!

Okay. My suggestion would be to sign up for the beginners' series first. I mod that, and so I can sign you up when the next series begins.
