Sign up below if you want to play in Gooseberry PBF #1!

When signing up, please list a favorite topic of yours. It can be anything. Examples from the rulebook include: Authors, Artists, Movies, Animals, Famous People, Historical Events

1. jtakagi - Movies
2. ljtrigirl - TV Shows
3. shawnad2006 - Flags
4. rathstar - Metal Bands
5. mowglee - Boomers, Deduction Games
6. Smugvid - Pearl Jam song titles

Gooseberry is a simple game: at the start of each round, the moderator selects one of the game's topics (picked by the players) and presents to the entire group a list of 16 items related to that topic. For instance, if the topic is Books, the moderator will select 16 Books of their choosing for the players (Lord of the Flies, Call of the Wild, Night, Diary of Anne Frank, Treasure Island, etc.). Then the moderator will GeekMail each player either a randomly chosen item from the list (each player gets the same word) OR a message informing one of the six players that they are the Gooseberry, who does not get to know which of the items on the list has been chosen.

The Gooseberry's job is to not be discovered, though if they are discovered, they have one last chance to win the round by guessing at which item on the list everyone besides them knows about.

A round works like this: after receiving the GeekMail informing you which of the items has been selected, you'll GeekMail the moderator one and exactly one word that might signal to others in the game that you know which item is the selected item on the list. Even the Gooseberry does this, which will be quite tricky for them. Then the moderator reveals to all players the words chosen and players discuss. After 24 hours, players send another GeekMail to the moderator, voting for the player they believe is the Gooseberry. If a vote is tied up, say 3-3, then all players who receive the most votes are formally accused of being the Gooseberry. The real Gooseberry then reveals themselves. If not accused, they simply win the round. If accused, they have one more shot at winning: by guessing the item on the list that everyone knows.

And that's it! We'll play three rounds for this first PBF, with winners of a round getting a point. Tied players all win the game!

If you have any more questions, see the rules: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsd...

From the above topics submitted, random.org has determined these 3 topics for the three rounds in this order:

1. TV Shows
2. Sports
3. Flags

I don't really care what this is. Is metal bands too specific?

Possibly? Not sure. Eh, I think it's probably fine!
