The rules are the same as always, except for the differences, so I will use this post to lay out the differences from normal rules.

There is no leader.

In each of the five rounds, the players will submit to me a ranked list of players whom they want to see on the mission.

Using the instant run-off method of election, I will determine the first person to be on the mission.

A, B, C, D, and E vote.

A: A, B, C, D, E
B: B, A, C, D, E
C: C, B, A, E, D
D: D, A, B, E, C
E: E, D, C, B, A

Everyone's tied on the first vote, so they are eliminated from the entirety of the voting.

A: A, B, C, D, E
B: B, A, C, D, E
C: C, B, A, E, D
D: D, A, B, E, C
E: E, D, C, B, A

On the second tier, A and B are tied for first, so C, D, and E votes are eliminated.

A: A, B, C, D, E
B: B, A, C, D, E
C: C, B, A, E, D
D: D, A, B, E, C
E: E, D, C, B, A
Since no-one has a 50% majority, we keep looking. E's vote is now for B, and B is going on the first mission with over 50% of the vote.

Voting is reset, but votes for B are no longer valid - remember that the first level was a complete tie and does not count still.

A: C, D, E
B: A, C, D, E
C: A, E, D
D: A, E, C
E: D, C, A

A has 60% of the vote and is the second person.

If there is a third person on the mission, then votes for A don't count.

A: C, D, E
B: C, D, E
C: E, D
D: E, C
E: D, C

A: C, D, E
B: C, D, E
C: E, D
D: E, C
E: D, C

C has over 50% of the vote and goes on the mission.

How predictable.

Anyway, that's how the elections will work.

Results will be posted as above in order to let people argue with me over the results.

People going on the mission will then have to send me their mission cards, and the mission will pass or fail, blah blah blah...

First to 3 wins.

So, anybody want to climb aboard this certain train-wreck of a game?

Game starts Monday of next week.

Signups:
Clyde
DJ
Mike
PP
Emily

Re: PBF #40 - An Untimely Election Event!
Four coordination schemes, each alike in dignity, in fair Avalon, where we lay our scene:

1 First spy to out themselves while on mission fails mission
2 First spy in signup order fails mission
3 First spy elected to mission fails mission
4 First spy in alphabetical order fails mission

Quick, everyone pick which one you'll follow if you end up being a spy! Here, I'll go first: I'll roll a d4 each mission I'm on and use that one.

Strange, no on chimed in.

Alright, if you talk about spy coordination shit after this post, you are basically outing yourself as a spy.

Alright Emily, if that's how it's gonna be, we gonna do this. I can handle it if you're a spy and I'm not for five days.

Everyone hear that? Emily and I have a truce, for this particular very short game, okay?

Also, Emily, I WILL DESTROY YOU AND DJ IF YOU AND DJ ARE SPIES.

Now we just gotta get Brady in and it's the old gang.

I have no intentions except to destroy my mind figuring out who wins the votes.

3-5 days is if everything goes well. I expect it to take some time to get the results, deal with the recounts, etc. But it should be a quicker game than normal, given there's not a 5 mission proposal waiting period each mission.

Sounds like the mod needs some Excel help. If I can figure out how the voting works I will offer my services. :-)

Can we cap this at 7? 8 would be okay too. 9 not so much. 10 is right out.

Let's start with 8 so that when you scare somebody off, we are at 7.

I should have spent my last 3 weeks modding the other game on creating an Excel sheet for this game.
