    Default Assassins in the Palace--Sign up!

    If there is any interest, I'm thinking of running a quick / easy Mafia game that we played in chat with Vox. Works like this:

    Roles:
    King
    3 or 4 Guards
    Assassin

    The object is pretty simple - if you are the King you want to stay alive, if you are a Guard you want to protect the King by killing the Assassin, if you are the Assassin you want to kill the King.
    The Guards know who the King is, but they do not know who the Assassin is or who the other Guards are. The King and the Assassin do not know who any of the other roles are.
    Each Day will be 24 hours. During the day, everyone will decide who to lynch. Remember, if you are a Guard you want to make it as hard as possible for the Assassin to figure out who the King is, so don't show your hand by never voting for the King. At the end of the Day the votes will be counted, a player lynched and their role revealed. If the player was the King, the game is over and the Assassin wins. If it was a Guard, we start the next Day (there are no Nights in this game). If the player was the Assassin, the King is almost safe and the game won - but WAIT! The Assassin has the power to strike out with his last bit of strength and instantly kill one player. If that player turns out to be the King, the Assassin still wins.

    Pros to this game - Super short and easy. I'm not a Mafia player and I get really turned off by pages and pages of tl;dr strategizing. I'm sure there would be some discussion in this game, but due to the short player list and shorter time frame it should be much less complicated.

    Cons to this game - I would be running it and may or may not know what I am doing.

    Anyone want to give it a shot?

    I only ever played a few games on IRC with Vox before, but I'll give it a shot.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    I can't do the super fast games, but I fully support the idea of them.

    Sign up to play the game people!

    Well, I've never gotten around to playing mafia online, but a quick game sounds like a good place to start. Count me in.

    OK, so we have

    CatInASuit
    Zuul
    What Exit?
    Taumpy
    AllWalker

    We have room for one more player! Maybe someone else who isn't a mod?

    I'll send out roles tonight and start the game tomorrow.

    Try emailing Vox, maybe he'll return.

    OK, since the first round ended by the Assassin being lynched in one day, I would like to start another round. If you are interested, let me know here.

    I'll try again. That did not take much effort at all.

    So, Myrnalene if you want to play in the next one I'll run it. If everyone else is still interested?

    I still am.
    I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.
