On March 1st, 2016, Hi #127 dawned. It included two new players. One of those players was me! The other n00b was this lovely gal. We played several of our first games together and became fast friends both in game and out of game.

She is a beautiful person, a good friend and a very tricky wolf! I've been lucky to get to know mono these last few months. Her presence is definitely a mainstay in the fabric of our community. Her game play is superb regardless of alignment and her personal brand of snark always makes me smile. She's won some epic werewolf games both good and evil.

I'm happy to pass the torch to my fabulous friend, monogarden! arrrh

Thanks for picking me Beren! It's been a blast starting in the very first game as you and being able to grow together as players!

I'm Megan and I work as a librarian for my county's library system here in Maryland. Despite having joined this site years ago, to get board game info, I only started being active on the forums this past spring. I'd always enjoyed playing board games like Risk while growing up and it was great to be able to find all these new exciting games and start spreading them to my friends (although it'd be nice if they bought new games occasionally instead of just waiting for me to do it )

I'd tried a few Mafia games on previous sites but never really got into it and it wasn't until meeting this lovely group of people that it actually clicked for me. It's been amazing being here and having a group of people who are so warm and kind and fun and who instantly made me feel at home.

In non-board-game hobbies, I live up to my librarian stereotype of loving books, as well as traveling, hiking and listening to people talk about climbing mountains. I got to combine these last several interests this past May where I went on a trip to Nepal to hike out to Mount Everest Base Camp, for a truly phenomenal vacation.

Anyway, thanks for picking me, it's an honor!

What would you do with your life if a universal basic income was instituted?

Which book that is commonly accepted as purely fictional would change history the most if it ceased to exist and why?

If you got to pick: Who would be your ideal good team in a 9er? Who would be your ideal evil teammates?

(May actually might have been an optimistic answer....)

But this is good! We can all be lazy and procrastinate together and there's no shame!

The premise of The Purge is real. What crime do you commit on your day of freedom, or do you hide in a bunker?

Hi Mono and congratulations!

Do you have a favourite fictional librarian?

What has been your most enjoyable game of werewolf here so far?

What would we find you doing post (zombie or other) apocalypse?

Is May late for last Christmas or just in good time for next year?

Thanks Smug!

What's your favourite thing to smell?
Wood fires! It always makes me think of winter and being cozy in front of the fireplace.

What's your favourite thing to smell of?
Um... shampoo?

Fishes and sheeps or fish and sheep?
Fishes and sheeps!

Are you musical at all?
Nope! I tried playing the clarinet, piano and guitar all for various lengths of time before abandoning them. I took Choir in high school for the art class we needed (because I am also not artistic) and just sang quietly the entire year. I do like singing along in the car, though, and my boyfriend (who does know how to sing) "enjoys" how I can get close-but-not-enough to hitting all the notes right

What's the best thing about being a librarian?
It's fun always having something different going on every day. Monday night I got to hold my monthly Board Game class so it's always cool getting paid to play games!

Last year, we had the excitement of Batman coming and visiting the library!




If you had to swap your non-writing hand for a never-ending chocolate bar or ice cream, what would it be?
Mmm, ice cream if I can do a bowl of it, chocolate if it has to be an ice cream bar.

How was your birthday?
Good! It'd been a busy summer/fall so it was nice to have a quiet time to relax. And I had a great dinner at a local restaurant I'd been meaning to try.

What's your favourite bird?
Penguins, maybe?

What's your favourite feline?
Ocelots! They're so cute.

Also my friend's cat who acts like a dog and plays with people.

When you're Good, what's the role you'd like me to be?
Seer! You'd be great to work with and we'd tear down the wolves.

Will you be my teammate if that game we were Smuggarden for runs again?
Definitely laugh I was proud of our consistency and had a great time being teammates!

When was the last time you had to actually run to get somewhere in time?
Heh, unless you count work in the mornings (which is always a struggle - I see I'm 10 minutes early and think great, I can spare a few minutes to check in online before I finish getting ready! And then it's 15 minutes later and I'm racing to get out of the house), I don't know if I can think of a time. I'm one of those people who always builds in way too much time because I'm worried about being late and then winds up arriving super early. My family hates flying with me because they like making it through security with just enough time to get to the gate before boarding closes and I like to have a good hour or so to sit at the gate so I know I won't miss the flight.

Congrats, monogarden!

So, there used to be a guy on the forum named Guenhwyvhar. He was infamous in the WOTW threads, not because he asked a bajillion and one questions, but because he asked one single question. As he has drifted away from participating in the Village Square, I have decided to take up his mantle. Hate me if you want. ...

---------------
You are the moderator of a Hi game. Your players can be anybody, real or fictional, living or dead. Who would you have in your game? What roles would everyone have? Which team would win? What would be the standout plays, or who would be the MVP of the game? What else is interesting about this game?

If you want to get ideas by looking at some of the previous answers, you can look at The Epic Question Thread!

These are the roles for a Hi game:
Quote:
Villager x5
Brutal Hunter
Seer
Martyr


Sorcerer-Cultist (immune to NK)
Werewolf (first dead werewolf is brutal)
Werewolf

If you want to use the old standard P11, the only changes are that the Sorcerer-Cultist is not immune to the NK and only views for Seer, and that one wolf is a dedicated brutal Werewolf.
---------------


If you want a sample, here is mine.

Yeah, I'm copy/pasting. Life goes on ...

Hello my nemesis. Congratulations.


A What is your favourite meal?
Sushi. Or mussels. Or crabs in the summer. Apparently something seafood.

B What is your least favourite WW role to play as?

Aux evil, I never know what to do.

C What is your weirdest WW memory on the site? As in something that stuck out to you as odd?

I don't know exactly what you mean by weird memory (and Cassy being down isn't helping) but I'll answer with Sarah and Rorab's cats game. That game was super bizarre in all the best ways.

D You can play one boardgame with any literary characters. What board game do you play, and with who?

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective with Nancy Drew and Poirot to see how well they do solving crimes outside their spheres of expertise. Obviously Sherlock Holmes can't play, he'd cheat.

E Who are some of your favourite bands/musicians?

The National, The Decemberists, The New Pornographers

F What is the last book you read and enjoyed?

Station Eleven. That book was a delight to read.

G What is your opinion, as a literary person, on the author George Eliot (author of Silas Marner, among other books)?

Middlemarch is supposed to be good.

H Which WW'er do you have the worst reads that you feel confident on?

To be honest, there isn't anyone that I'm ever very confident of reading correctly.

I Other than me, who is your WW nemesis?
In person - Royal for never ever ever being on my team
Online - I don't know. I'll accept applications if anyone's interested.

J How much time do you average being actively on BGG per week?
Having added the number up, I now don't want to say. If it's a regular week, where work isn't crazy and I'm in multiple games, um. A lot?

K Ner lbh tbbq ng onfvp pvcuref?
Yes.

As a whole, probably either Twin Cinema or Challengers (which was the first one I heard, so I'm always attached to it). But pretty much all their albums have songs on them that I love. Well, maybe not Brill Bruisers.

Actually though, I've never heard all of Mass Romantic or Electric Version but I really like all the songs I know from them. So that might change if I ever listen to the rest of the songs.

Depends how much the income was. Assuming it's enough to live on but not enough for luxuries, I'd probably still end up working. I really like traveling and there are still a lot of places I want to go/go back to. It would be amazing to have it as a backup, though, if I found a long-term thing I wanted to go to or visit that I wouldn't normally be able to take time off work to go do. Like hike the Appalachian Trail or something.

Which book that is commonly accepted as purely fictional would change history the most if it ceased to exist and why?
Probably the Iliad/Odyssey. Just because of how much time it's had to influence other works and cultures that in turn have become hugely influential.

If you got to pick: Who would be your ideal good team in a 9er? Who would be your ideal evil teammates?
Seer - Tfang (I don't know if I've ever played with you as Seer? It sounds like it'd be awesome though, especially watching you in a claim war)
Priest - Paper (I love finding and building trust with good-Paper)
Hunter - me (this is me being lazy and taking the role that doesn't involve any extra work )
Villagers - ortho, LJ, Stone (all 3 crush it as good and would be amazing to have at the end, if all the other GSes get taken out)

Evil teammates - wolfing with Sarah with Beren as our aux! It was great doing this once in a Niner with Sarah and I'd repeat it again in a heartbeat. And Beren never is more entertaining than when he's pulling aux shenanigans.

I played a ton for 11 months here before I finally rolled Seer the first time - I think I may have only been a seer 5 or 6 times total in nearly two years and over 120 games.

So I'm not surprised you haven't been there for it, it is a very rare occurrence!

Good answers, btw. =)

I've only seen bits and pieces of the movies while flipping channels so going off the assumption that anyone's a target if they're outside (as opposed to like specific people) - I'd hide inside and spend all day downloading everything I'd wanted to pirate for the past year.

Oooh and I'd grill out on my balcony (as long as it didn't look like murderers were going to climb up there). Just try and stop me, HOA!

I'd better stock up on fire extinguishers, though. It'd be super sad if they were right and it really was a huge fire hazard and then I died because the fire department didn't show up.

I've actually never seen them, but thought the concept is cool. Basically all crime is legal for 1 day. So you could do anything w/o (legal) reprecussion...but so can everyone else...

Yeah I was trying to think of good crimes that wouldn't hurt anyone else and that I'd actually want to do. And that I'd be able to pull off. And that a zillion other people wouldn't also be doing and fight me for.

It wasn't easy.

I'd love to say go rig the lottery or something so I can win a bunch of money and then retire. But a) I'd have no idea how to do that and b) then I'd be a target in the future!

So. Just hide and have my little act of rebellion, I guess
