Werewolves!!

We need some fresh blood in here! So..I'm going to advertise this game out in BGG proper. Only new players (who have never played in this forum) qualify for the 50gg giveaway.

I'd like to have some vets on the standby in case we need replacements.

50 geekgold will be rewarded to the person at the end of the game who is voted MVP by the rest of the players. Participation should be the primary qualification.

This will be a barebones game:
2 wolves
1 seer (can "view" one person at night to determine if he/she is a wolf)
6 villagers

Role Reveal on death.

4:00BGG Lynch
7:00BGG Night actions due

Game will start when full and will not run over the weekend.

Victory Conditions

There is no individual victory. You win if your team wins, whether you survive or not.

The village/good team wins:
When both wolves are dead.

The werewolf/evil team wins:
When the number of living werewolves equals (or exceeds) the number of living villagers (including the seer).

Sequence of Play

The sequence of play lasts one full day, starting when I post [dawn]. At that point, discussion begins and the village will try to find the evil wolves.

Dusk will fall at 4:00pm BGG time (central). At that time, whoever has the most votes will be lynched and the vote count will be reset to zero.

At that point, the wolves will decide who to kill in the night and the seer will decide who they would like to "view". They will tell me in Cassandra Chat. It is located on the Cassandra Game page for this game by clicking on "Cassandra Communication System":


At 7:00pm BGG time (central), I will reveal who was killed and post [dawn] which begins a new day of discussion.

Voting

Votes are cast using player's names in brackets, bolded. Like this:
[vote woodjh]

You can remove your vote similarly:
[unvote woodjh] or [unvote all]

You can unvote and re-vote in the same post, as long as you unvote first.

I'm a little lost, but totally up for doing this. And that's not wolf-fu talking. I mean, seriously.

Not sure who to contact about this but my timezone isn't represented so I picked the closest one.

NT or UTC -3:30 is the one I'm in.

Thats just for a quick reference, and doesn't really affect the game play. As long as you can keep track of when lynch/dusk is, you'll be fine.

I'm interested, but concerned about the short duration between lynch/night actions.

Also not sure what Cassandra is.

If you're not going to be around during the nighttime phase, and you have night orders (wolves or seer), you can give me "conditional" orders. Like, "View Snaak. If he was lynched, View Woodjh", etc.

Also, go here:
http://www.thecassandraproject.org/jeremy/werewolf/

To create a cassandra account. I can then add you to the game. Basically Cassie automatically tallies votes, takes nighttime orders, creates a chat for the wolves, etc. Makes playing that much better!

Are votes public (in this forum) or private (in which case, to where?).

They are all public. You post your vote in the thread using the above method. Cassie will automatically post a vote tally ever 15 minutes or so (if there has been a vote)

You can change your vote as much as you like by voting someone new.

Above is an example of a Cassie Vote Talley. In this game, there are 14 players left (of an original 17). It's a good way to see voting history. This count clears at the end of every day.

The "inverted tally" shows who has voted for whom, as opposed to the top tally that shows who has votes ON them.

Re: Newbie Game-WIN 50 GEEKGOLD!!!
Okay, the voting for the lynch mob makes sense.

___
Next question:

Wolves obviously know each other from first night.

In 'face to face' games there's usually some 'discussion' (head nods, pointing, rolling of eyes, etc) between the wolves while everyone else is drumming on the table and humming. Nothing verbal, as that would give them away.

Is that communication done via geekmail, cassandra posts, something else?

(( I know in the Resistance game that kind of pointed me over here that EVERYTHING is public, but that's a very different game. ))

The wolves will have a real-time chat within the Cassandra system. It's like IM, except it keeps a history of the conversation, so you can pop in, type something, and pop out..and it'll stay there for your wolf buddy to see. Everyone will also have a one-on-one chat with me in cassie (for questions, clarifications, strategy, etc).

Re: Newbie Game-WIN 50 GEEKGOLD!!!
If you look in Cassandra for recently completed games, and then click through to 'Cassandra Communication System', you can read all chats (player-to-moderator, occasional player-to-player and wolf chat). That should give you a good idea of how they are used and how 'orders' are put in.

Re: Newbie Game-WIN 50 GEEKGOLD!!!
So the wolves are constantly 'pre-deciding' who the next target is, even during the lynchmob phase.

That changes a lot, since normally the wolves aren't able to openly speak during the day.

I think I'm ready, you just need two young lupines players.
