For Your Consideration: Spyleague

Postby Zoomzip » 27 Mar 2021, 22:40

An adaptation of The Chamelon by Big Potato Games, with a nod to The Incomparable's "Who is the Spy?"

An informed (?) majority vs uninformed minority.

Goals: Low time commitment and engagement, high replay value, let people come and go faster (to work alongside traditional mafia games, not in place of)

I like these games in person, interested to see how they translate to forum.

OK, cool! Seems like there is some interest. A few notes:

1) The first game will be an exhibition/play-test to see how it works out and potentially fiddle the rules and scoring.
2) If we do get to the point of recurring league games, there will be a cap for the number of players in a given game. Priority will always be given to new players, and to players with fewer games played.
3) Since this is not actually mafia, I will probably run this in the Other PBF Games.
4) I will do my best to check with mafia GMs who have games going to make sure they are ok with me running another social deduction type game as their game is going on. I don't want to be pulling players away from mafia games, and I'm hopeful that this game will be light enough in its demands that it wouldn't do so, but best to be neighborly.

As I believe there is no mafia game running right now, I will probably throw a sign-up thread into OPBF and grab yinz expressions of interest from here.

OK, threw up a formal central signup thread here. I've gone ahead and signed up everyone who expressed interest, but feel free to withdraw if you feel like you may not be able to continue. Look forward to trying this out with everyone!
