Welcome to the first-ever Two Rooms and a Boom PBF! I'll mod this one (but would love to play in #2 for sure).
intro from the rules wrote:
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 President at the end of the game, then the Red Team wins. Otherwise the Blue Team wins.


18 players have signed up, which means the rounds will have the following number of player swaps:

Round 1: 4 players
Round 2: 3 players
Round 3: 2 Players
Round 4: 1 Player
Round 5: 1 Player


So how do we play it on the forums?

modified PBF rules wrote:
So at the start of the game, the moderator will two different "room" threads (labeled something like "PBF#1 - Round#1 - The Bunker" and "PBF#1 - Round#1 - The Command Post") 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 signed-up 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 CHEAT and look at the other room's thread. They may only read and post in their assigned room. Over the course of the round, each room elects a leader based on any method they choose and then the leader, after discussing it with the room, PMs the mod and says who's moving from their room into the other. (The number of players who move between rooms is dependent on how many players are in the game.)

After both Leaders have submitted an order, the mod ends the round prematurely, moves the players (via the "main thread") and then posts that another round has begun (and whatever new deadline there is). If a leader does not submit a person to switch within the timelimit, I will select someone randomly from that room and move them.

After the mod as moved the players, two new threads, for the next round, will be created. Players may not look back at the "old" rooms until the game is finished. Leadership is maintained between rounds.

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 a players wish to do a co-reveal, they must in their room's thread publicly state, "I wish to do a co-reveal with Jesse." "Jesse" must then also say, "I wish to do a co-reveal with Jimmy." 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).

All mod actions will be posted via the "main" thread but no players are permitted to post there after the game has started. Posting before and after is fine, and reading the main thread at any time is fine.


Now that all 18 player slots have been filled, I will be selecting the roleset for this game, updating the main thread with their descriptions, and then messaging out roles to players and assigning players into rooms. Although the game officially begins at 8am BGG time Thursday morning (tomorrow), you are allowed to post in your assigned room prior to this (and indeed, right after you recieve your role and room via PM).

Questions should be directed to me via PM and I'll answer them in the main thread. Please take a few moments to read over the very short ruleset here, if you get a chance: Two Rooms and a Boom Rules v3.3

Good luck!

Re: 2RaaB PBF#1: A New Boom - main thread
Roleset

Note: we are playing with 19 roles and 18 players, which means that one role will be "buried"--removed at random prior to the roles being assigned.

THE BLUE TEAM
President - at the end of the game, The Blue Team wins if the President is NOT in the room with the Bomber

President's Daughter - if the President role has been buried, the Daughter is the back-up for the President (meaning, she cannot be in the same room as the Bomber at the end of the game)

Doctor - must reveal with the President (or Daughter, if President buried) before the end of the last round, or the Blue Team loses

Nurse - back up role for the Doctor

Blue Shy Guy - may not reveal any part of their card to any player

Blue Fool - you may never turn down an offer to co-reveal

Plain Old Team Blue x 2 - no special abilities

THE RED TEAM
Bomber - Red Team wins if the The Bomber is in the same room as the President at the end of the game.

Martyr - back-up role for the The Bomber (similar to President's Daughter)

Engineer - must reveal with the Bomber before the end of the last round or the Red Team loses

Tinkerer - back-up role for the Engineer

Red Shy Guy - may not reveal any part of their card to any player

Red Fool - you may never turn down an offer to co-reveal

Plain Old Team Red x 2 - no special abilities

THE GRAY TEAM
(these roles win on their own independently of the Red and Blue teams)

Intern - you win if you are in the same room as the President at the end of the game

Victim - you win if you are in the same room as the Bomber at the end of the game

Private Investigator - you win if, at the end of the game but before players have revealed their roles, you can deduce the buried card

REMEMBER, ONE OF THESE ROLES HAS BEEN BURIED AND IS NOT IN THE GAME.

Also I'm fine with starting on weekend.
Just to clarify - co-reveal means showing my loyalty card (so my team + role), color-reveal means that only my team is known, right?

I'll give it a shot, but damned if I can figure out from the description how the thing is supposed to work (in real life or PBF).

Am I too late to join?

Also, how are you going to keep the newcomer to the room from seeing past conversations?

I guess the idea is that there will be one thread per room and per day. It might get problematic if people will forget to subscribe to new room

Nope, not too late.

A new room will be made each round. I'll clarify.

The rulebook has been uploaded to BBG and is awaiting mod approval. If you have any questions in the meantime, please ask!

Have you checked out the Werewolf forum here on BGG? They have a bunch of tools that would be well suited to running this kind of game.

Yes, PeteVasi has already chimed in that we could use Cassie, but I have not much experience with it and don't know how to make this game fit the Werewolf mold.

Why don't you join us here sans-Cassie then help us figure out how we could use her for the next game?

Also, we're already up to 8. Assuming we can get 3-4 more tonight, would you guys be okay starting tomorrow?

Being able to finish a game on such short-time scale is much better for me than a full game of The Resistance or Mafia.

I'm in!

I'm good to go at any time.

Can you finalize the set-up before we start though? Are we doing a basic game to start, or will we be using advanced cards?

It'll be mostly basic cards with one or two gray cards thrown into the mix.

I'll finalize a roleset after I can figure out how many players are interested.

We now have 10, which allows for color-reveals.

I will most likely cut off sign-ups later tonight and deal out roles and rooms for a start tomorrow. Everyone good with that?
