    I should say, my plan is to have 3 very simple mafia games (probably with a participation cap of only being able to sign up for one game). A small game is a completely different environment. Most players will not have unique roles, and the maximum life expectancy is 7 days.

    For queue purposes, I wouldn't count 8-12 player games as equivalent to 20-30 player games.

    Man up, set it aside so it can marinate, and make a Harry Potter better than Badal's. Competition is good. :P

    Of course. Credit them to be on the safe side.

    Rayne, could you maybe sticky the three games that are running at the moment?


    Also, I just noticed you're allowing 7 games to be run at the same time, I think that's a little too much. Say you're mafia in like 5 of them, you will make guaranteed slip-ups and might mess up entire games. I think it might be better to limit the maximum to 3 or 4.

    I think that should be more up to individual players rather than be applied to the whole system. More people have been interested in playing these games, and limiting the total number of games run will prevent people from playing. But with seven games, people can pick which games to join and which not to.

    Most people that are quite active here join every game that opens up. And why shouldn't they? Mafia games are fun. Since the problem I described applies to the majority, I think I still have a point.

    I've reached my limit too Mizzle. I'm not going to join every game because I don't want to ruin it.

    I've been looking around and 7 games seems like way too much at the moment. Could there possibly be a rule change for less? I know that some games are being delayed because of it.
    Either that or some subliminal advertising around Bulbagarden :3

    You're right, there's no need to run 7 games at the same time, and in fact there are only 6 running right now.

    However, I impose the limit so people get that chance to expose their game for as long as possible. There's no need to fill up to 7 completely, but the idea is not to make sure we're running 7 active games.

    Perhaps the more popular games may fill out fast, but as the players in those games begin to dwindle, that gives the other games a chance to fill up with players that couldn't commit before with the fresh drop outs. The games that were slower to start can finally fill up and begin when the old game is almost complete.

    In this way I hope we build up a natural rotation so when one game is nearing completion, another game will be well on its way.

    Just to make it official; I have a part-time job for a week, so while I can play games, I won't be able to host one. The time I plan for updates is spent at the job xD

    Anyone can host a game before me if they are ready to do so (currently, weegee can if he likes).

    Oh by the way, I've dropped out of hosting Buffy the Vampire Slayer mafia due to a lack of response and a drop of my interest and time to host. But the roles are all set, the game mechanics too, so if someone wants to host is in my place, contact me via PM and I'll be more than happy to forward them to you. ;)
