2R1B PBF30 - I don't know yet - Rules
Introduction

Two Rooms and a Boom is a social deduction, hidden role game. There are two teams, the Red Team and the Blue Team. The Blue Team has a President. The Red Team has a Bomber. Players are equally distributed between two rooms (separate playing areas). The game consists of 5 timed rounds. At the end of each round, some players will be traded into opposing rooms. If the Red Team’s Bomber is in the same room as the Blue Team's President at the end of the game, then the Red Team wins. Otherwise the Blue Team wins.


PBF Rules

At the start of the game, the moderator will create two different "room" threads (labeled something like "PBF#1 - The Bunker - Round 1" and "PBF#1 - The Command Post - Round") and a "main" thread (this one) in which the mod posts all of the "commands" during the game (like, "Jimmy Dean moves from The Bunker to the Command Post"). The mod then randomly assigns all players to the two rooms and deals out randomly their roles via private message. The mod then begins the first round by posting something like: ROUND 1 WILL END 24 HOURS FROM NOW

Each round is a day. All players assigned into a room MUST NOT look at the other room's thread as that is CHEATING. They may only read and post in their assigned room. Over the course of the round, each room's leader will select a number of hostages (round and player count dependent) to transfer to the other room. If a leader does not submit a person to switch within the time limit, the mod will select hostages randomly from that room and move them.

After the mod has moved the players, two new threads for the next round will be created. Players may only look back at "old" rooms that they have previously been in.

Electing a Leader

To elect a Leader for a room, players vote for any player in their room. They do this by bolding "Vote for Alex". Once a player has enough votes equal to more than half the number of players in the room (a majority), that player is the Leader.

A Leader remains the leader of a room until:
• The Leader leaves the room. If the Leader chooses to leave the room, then they must choose someone else to be the new Leader for that room.
• A re-vote occurs and a new player receives the majority of the votes.


Revealing

During the course of the game, players can do what is called a "co-reveal" or a "color-reveal". If you co-reveal with a player, you reveal to them your role and they reveal to you their role. If players wish to do a co-reveal, they must publicly state in their room's thread, "I wish to do a co-reveal with Jesse." "Jesse" must then also say, "I wish to do a co-reveal with Alex." After both players have "locked in" their wish to co-reveal via bolding, they are FORCED to divulge their role card with the other player (ie, you can't back out if you realize you're about to reveal to a player on the other team). If they wish to do a color-reveal, it is the same type of situation, except that you only share the color of your card (red, blue, or gray). There must be 10 players playing before color-reveals are allowed.

What if a player wishes to back out of a reveal prior to the actual reveal? Let's say A puts in bold that they wish to reveal with B. Prior to B putting in bold that they will reveal with A, A can back out of the reveal by putting in another message, in bold, saying they no longer wish to reveal. Once B puts in their reveal orders, however, the reveal is required by both parties, regardless of whether they wanted to reveal or not. No cheating! The mod WILL intervene if required (but would rather you sort it out yourself).

Players are also allowed to simply show another player their color or role if they'd like. To do this, a player would publicly state and bold in his room's thread, "I show Jesse my color" or "Private Reveal Jesse."

Likewise, you can publicly reveal your role to the room, by bolding your color or role and announcing it in the room's thread (i.e., "I am red."). If it's bold, you cannot lie.

To summarize, we have:

• Offer [color/co-reveal] to Jesse - to propose a color or co-reveal to player
• Accept [color/co-reveal] from Jesse - to accept a color or co-reveal from player
• Revoke [color/co-reveal] offer to Jesse - to cancel a previous color or co-reveal offer to player
• Private reveal [color/role] to Jesse - share role/color with player
• I am [color/role] - share color/role with room


Private Messaging

Private messaging will be allowed this game. Private messages must be:

• Announced in the public thread who you whispered to, via a bolded action, "Whisper to Jesse"
• You are allowed to whisper to multiple people at once for one action. "Whisper to Jesse, Alex, Teresa."
• There's still no limit on private messages (whispers) you can send, but try to keep whispers close to five per round or 25/game (it's not a hard limit, but it makes the game a little more challenging and mimics the time limit you might otherwise feel in a real-life game).

SPECIAL NOTE ON ENCODING WHISPERS:

Because spectators and future geeks browsing the forums may want to see what was said during those whisper exchanges (it makes the game more interesting), you may consider posting your messages in a
Spoiler (click to reveal)
SPOILER
and use a cypher like that found on the rot13 website (http://www.rot13.com/) to keep people from accidentally reading the message. To use the encoder, just type in whatever message you would like to whisper, hit CYPHER, and post the encoded text in your spoiler. Whoever receives the whisper should then copy the encoded text, paste it back into the rot13 encoder/decoder, and hit CYPHER.

NOTE: DO NOT READ MESSAGES MEANT FOR OTHER PEOPLE, especially those from opposing team members. THIS IS CHEATING. You are welcome to go back after the game is over and read what people posted.

SECOND-IN-COMMAND: To help prevent random transfers from occurring during the game, room leaders are HIGHLY encouraged to appoint a second-in-command and inform both that player and the moderator, so that said player may also submit hostage transfer orders and next round leader appointment to the moderator.

You can only choose one SIC, but feel free to change it later. You do not have to be leader to do this (perhaps you are expecting to become leader later.)

SIC Orders will be accepted as final orders if the Leader has:
a) not submitted orders by the deadline
b) or if the Leader submits orders, and says "Accept changes from SIC"

In the case of (a), I will post at room transfer time that was the case. (I will not reveal the name of the SIC, just that SIC orders were used)

2R1B PBF30 - Cosmic Bounty Hunters - Roleset
ROLESET

President - The Blue Team wins if you do not gain the "Dead" condition.

Bomber - Everyone in the same room as you at the end of the game gains the "Dead" condition. The Red Team wins if the President gains the "Dead" condition.

Body Snatcher/Body Snatcher - you keep the card of any character that co-reveals with you. You gain neither the allegiance nor the power of any stolen card. However, you may show any player any stolen card. Players with cards stolen maintain their powers and allegiance, but have obviously lost all ability to share their cards with others.

Tentaclese/Tentaclese - Play only when there are not an even amount of players. You have the "Tentacle Power." If you are in the room that has fewer players, you may leave the room and go into the opposing room. IMMEDIATELY upon arriving in the other room, you must privately reveal your card to another player without saying a word. Then, you and that player must IMMEDIATELY and silently leave the room and return to your original room. Immediately means that you must have pre-selected the player upon which you are using your "Tentacle Power." NOTE! "Tentacle Power" does not work on the last round.

Thug/Thug - any player that co-reveals with you acquires the "coy" condition. Players with the "coy" condition may only color reveal even when a character's power might force a co-reveal.

Blue Spy/Red Spy - You are a special character that is the color of the opposite team. This means that the Blue Spy has an allegiance to the Blue Team, but their color is red. The Red Spy has an allegiance to the Red Team, but their color is blue.

Clone - You join the team of the first Red or Blue card with whom you co-reveal. Your win objectives are the same as theirs.

2R1B PBF30 - Cosmic Bounty Hunters - Rule Clarifications
Body Snatcher Clarifications
If a Body Snatcher co-reveals with a Body Snatcher, then both players lose their cards to the other. Both of these players may continue to show other players the cards they’ve acquired, but neither player can continue to collect cards.

How the Tentaclese works
When a Tentaclese decides to use his or her power, please PM me who you would like to "tentacle" from the other room. I will, at the next chance I get, post an exit reply in that player's room and an entrance reply in the new room. The tentacled player may NOT read any posts prior to the entrance post. I will also tell the tentacled player who took them, and which color they were. Here's an example:

Brady the Blue Tentaclese, and in Room A (with the minority). Erin is in Room B.

1. Brady PMs me that he wants to tentacle Erin.
2. I will post in Room B that Erin has been taken from the room.
3. I will PM Erin that she has been tentacled by Brady, and tell her that he is Blue Tentaclese.
4. I will post in Room A that Erin has been tentacled into that room.

Conditional Orders
I will accept conditional orders within reason. Please PM me any conditional orders.

Like the roleset. Unfortunately I won't be able to play this week.
Who came up with an idea for Clone?
What happens if Clone meets Body Snatcher's alter-ego?

Still working on the roleset, just a handful of roles I want to use.

That's a good question about the Clone meeting Body Snatcher. I will ask Alan.

Ruling from designer, the definition should read something like:

You gain the allegiance of the first Red or Blue Team CARD that is co-revealed to you.

So, Red Body Snatcher who uses a Blue Team card to co-reveal with the Clone. The Clone joins the Blue Side.
