Our first attempt at a One Night Ultimate Alien game!

Note that this thread was created during the Kickstarter, so not all real rules are known and many things do not represent the real game.

Rule Changes from ONUW

Basic differences of the One Night Ultimate Alien rules from those of One Night Ultimate Werewolf follow.

Every player is given a number. Those numbers will also represent seating order and are distributed clockwise. Thus, the players to your right have lower numbers than you and players to your left have higher numbers.

The script is different every time in ONUA! Many roles have variables to their action that affect how they play. When you wake, you will be told the full script that you could hear to that point. The full script will also be posted at the start of the Day Phase. The script will be chosen randomly from a list of possible versions, although I will not be making that list public.

There will be an Alien Phase prior to the rest of the Night Phase. Everybody will need to check in during both phases. The reason for this is that Aliens may make a choice that affects other players' actions.

Usually, there is the possibly for the app to introduce ripples. They will not be implemented, as we don't have a good variety of options.

The Aliens will NOT use a Lone Alien rule. They already are given a special power by the app (which sometimes flubs).

Roles and Rules:

This game will max out at 8 players, although may start earlier if we cannot fill up.

The Role list is currently (for 8 players):

Aliens:
Alien - Knows Aliens. Wins if all Aliens survive.
Body Snatcher - Knows Aliens. Wins if all Aliens survive. Wakes up to switch cards with a non-Alien, looking at the new card. That card also is treated like an Alien card.

Other Teams:
Synthetic - Knows Aliens. Wins only if he dies. Aliens cannot win if he dies. Other roles can still win, but the Villagrs won't if he is the only death.
Blob - Absorbs certain neighbours (according to the script) and will only win if everyone in the Blob survives.
Mortician - He wins only if a neighbour dies. He might get to look at his neighbours cards.
Nostradamus - Makes a prediction at the end of the night. He only wins if he predicted correctly and survives.

Villagers:
Cow - If an Alien is next to the Cow, one of them will tap her fist.
Psychic - Views cards as directed by the script.
Rascal - Moves cards around somehow as directed by the script.
Exposer - Flips cards in the Center as directed by the script.

I may consider adding further roles if there is a lot of interest...

Night Sequence

This shows the night order of the in-use roles

• • • • N I G H T • • • •
Aliens: 1-A
Cow: 1-C
Body Snatcher: 1-D
Psychic: 5-G
Rascal: 7-F
Exposer: 10-B
Blob: 13
Mortician: 13-A.
Nostradamus: 14.

Players

Signed up players (In seating order):

#1: Kiwi13cubed
#2: NotTheTanner
#3: blipadouzi
#4: Itai
#5: Hal 2000
#6: MajaiofDreams
#7: Dinalfos

The game will start at my discretion a set time after we get enough players to make this interesting.

PBF-specific rules

The center cards will be referred to as LEFT, MIDDLE and RIGHT.

Aliens sometimes need to make a group decision. I will take votes for a choice in this case, with random selection breaking ties.

During the Alien and Night phases, I will need a response from everybody to ensure that players don't determine your role based on whether you were present or not. Be ready for these posts.

Duration of the day phase will be 24-48 hours after the night phase ends. It will end at 1600CDT/BGG Time within that time range (that seems to be a time Europe, the US and Australia can be available). If everyone has submitted a vote before the scheduled end time, discussion will immediately end (this will be indicated in the thread). At that point, you have until the scheduled end of day phase to change or confirm your previous vote. If I have received confirmation from everyone, the game will immediately end. Otherwise, the game will end at the originally scheduled time accepting all unconfirmed votes.

If not everybody votes by the end of the Day Phase, you have 24 hours to submit your vote. The game will immediately end as soon as everyone has submitted a vote in this case. If you don't vote in the post-day timeframe, your vote will be randomly assigned.

You can change your vote at any time while voting is open. You can retract a past vote at any time while discussion is open.

I am willing to discuss any changes to these rules and answer any queries you have about rules interactions.

All other rules are as specified in the rules. Please check the following locations and ask if you have any queries about rule interactions:

I think this will be a lot of fun! I look forward to sign-ups!

Re: PBF #53: ONUA #1: TTIOT (sign-ups)
While we await the final two (or perhaps more) can I ask for opinions on the roleset?

I'm interested on your opinions on the timing of Nostradamus in particular. Should he be before or after the Exposer? At the moment, I have him after, which means he is the only one that benefits (as the Blob doesn't wake and the Mortician makes no choices). Do you think it's too much information, or alternatively, too little information if he goes beforehand?

If we add a 9th or 10th player, which roles do you think we should add? I'll veto Doppelgänger, as I don't want to write the script for it just yet, and of course all Wolf, Vampire and Mark roles are out, but is there anything else you think could mix well?

The wording on Nostradamus that he makes his prediction at the end of night, makes me think he goes last after everyone else.

Re: PBF #53: ONUA #1: TTIOT (sign-ups)
Well, there are 3 new roles that you haven't put on your roleset: Groob, Zerb and the Oracle.

What about them ?

Groob and Zerb are Alien roles, and I think we already have enough of those, especially with Body Snatcher. They'll likely show up in future PBFs.

The Oracle is just unimplementable at the current time. All we know is she goes first, and she can be asked "Would you like to be an Alien" at the start of the game and the app communicates her response somehow. I don't know how to handle that, or come up with more options for her!
