The Werewolf Game / TWG CX? Postgame
« on: August 19, 2018, 07:16:37 PM »
I really wanted a computer for this.

Anyhoo, here it is.

1. ShyYoshiGuy- Vanilla Human
2. Toby- Vanilla Human
3. Nana1Popo2- Jailkeeper
4. BlackDragonSlayer- Godfather
5. BrainyLucario- Strongman
6. Trasdegi- Vanilla Human

Action list should be completely public
This game suffered from having only 6 players for sure, as most of the players in the game hadn't really played with such a small sample size before.  Wolves simply outplayed the town in this case and got a little lucky hitting the jailkeeper with a blackmail, cause it could've messed with parity otherwise.
Wolf mvp goes to bds for posting more.
Human mvp goes to uh
Let's go with tras
You got town read
Gj

We need a hiatus
Where are all the twgers :/

Not a lot really went on this game but I think it's an important one in the context of Toby
Reminds me a bit of myself sometimes

TWG Numerals: Jailhouse Rock


6+ Player setup.
Game begins on a day phase, but unique to this game is players do not get lynched.  Each day, players choose someone to throw in jail.  If a human is jailed, they stay the night in jail and then is released at the beginning of the next day phase.  If a mafia member is successfully jailed, they are not released.  While a player is in jail, they may only communicate via forum PM.  Out of thread communication is not allowed during this game otherwise.

The humans win when both mafia members have successfully been jailed.  The mafia win when all humans have been blackmailed or thrown in jail.

1. Mafia Godfather- When thrown in jail, gets released as though he is a Vanilla Human.  If the Mafia Strongman is already in jail, the Humans win instead.
2. Mafia Strongman- Each night, can choose up to one non-Mafia player to Blackmail.  The blackmailed player is unable to vote for the remainder of the game.  The blackmailed player will be revealed publicly.
3. Jailkeeper- The jailkeeper does not know who he is and cannot be thrown in jail.  If he would be thrown in jail, instead nobody is thrown in jail.
4. Vanilla Human
5. Vanilla Human
6. Vanilla Human



Players:
1. ShyYoshiGuy
2. Toby
3. Nana1Popo2
4. BlackDragonSlayer
5. BrainyLucario
6. Trasdegi


Role PMs are going out.  At 6:00 PM CST, it will be Day 1.  Day 1 ends in 48 hours, at 6:00 PM CST on Monday, August 13.

You are the 1-shot Mafia Janitor.  Once per game, you can “clean up a kill”, preventing any of that player’s information from being revealed on cardflip.  Your partner is PlayerName the Mafia Night Watchman.  Additionally, three times per game you may name a player and their role/what their role does.  If you do so correctly, they die immediately  and not at the end of the phase.
You were immediately under suspicion by FireArrow and Greg.  Of course, there was no way for you to know they were masons, but they had agreed upon you for a lynch the night prior!  Also, you only died because brainy was still voting for you (which is probably a good thing, because THC had declared intent to vote you- in a perfect world, it would have been a kitb).  He was playing around effects he didn't know were in the game, and it's possible you two could have chosen to kill davy, for example.

You are the Mafia Night Watchman.  Once each night, you may target a player and learn the name of every player who visited them.  Your partner is PlayerName, the 1-shot Mafia Janitor.  Additionally, you have been given an EMP item that allows you to prevent all night actions for a phase, returning negative results for all investigative powers.
I was disappointed you didn't use the EMP, as I started the game specifically on a night phase to allow for the use of the EMP.  Knocking out all powers is quite the effect.  Anyway, you had a plan to win the game and stuck to it despite the fact that just making the obvious wolf play would likely have won you the game!  It wasn't bad to think the game had a one-shot vigi or a revive, but the game started on the night phase because of the EMP and not because of a revive/vigi effect.  Either way, you did a good job of making sure people wouldn't lynch you immediately after BDS and secured a victory.  You probably get MVP.

Well played game.  I enjoy your scumhunting tactics and you were OH SO CLOSE!!  If only you had trusted in the flashlight and decided davy couldn't have made the kill...  That would leave process of elimination to brainy- which really doesn't make sense, because he helped kill BDS, but again you could have considered that the nightkill would not go through, leaving the wolves outed in lylo.

If I recall correctly, you're the one who came up with the "T" strategy, which was fun to watch, especially when you messed up.  You ended up being the nightkill, which really hurt PoE, since if THC had been you, for example, Brainy likely would have been the one killed.

You are the Doctor.  Once each night, you can save target a player to save them from death.
You died preeetty early.  Good job on being widely town read though.  I honestly enjoy reading how your posts flow, since you've got lots of experience from playing ToS.  Maybe we can play another game together in the future instead of me hosting!  You're just a really smart player, kind of similar to BDS in my mind.  Also, your doctor targets weren't correct :P

You are the Engineer.  Once each night, you may manufacture a Flashlight to give to a player of your choice.  A Flashlight shines on a player in the dark, illuminating their actions that night.
You manufactured flashlights like a madman.  Despite what people say, you played another solid game and you're proving that you're no longer a newbie.  If I have one suggestion, you tend to go on a tangent/talk about things unrelated to the game.  There's always plenty of stuff to talk about.  Look at what people are saying and find it instead of saying "I had steak for dinner" just to reach post count!  But good job on reaching post count, especially at the end there.

You are the Salesperson.  Your experience in sales and natural charisma means your vote counts for 2 instead of 1.  You must PM the host letting them know whether you want this ability on or off.  You may do this at any time.
I like how I change phase time so that the euros can be there for end of day and then 2/3 of them die immediately.  It still worked better for me than midnight, so it's all good.  You got mislynched over THC for no reason, since you were charismatic and could even have had someone else besides the two of you die.  I'm guessing you just didn't wake up early enough to check.  Sorry 'bout that!

You are the Commuter.  You have become so ordinary that twice per game, during night phases, you may choose to blend into the background, becoming completely untargetable by night actions.
You somehow were convinced that BDS was a human, despite... him not being human.  Rather than acknowledging that BDS had to have been a wolf (and I expected you to recognize the Janitor power since  you're more familiar with roles than most people) you considered the unlikely possibility that there are no wolves and tried to lynch the host!  Occam's razor bro. (though I can see how you arrived at the conclusion :P )  I did like that you brought up the no-lynch option, since it swung parity back in humans' favor.  And it may have attracted the wolves to try and kill you, but using your commuter power, you could have upset parity back lol.  I don't think you should have been lynched at the end though (you kind of town-telled with your "mikey is the wolf" comment).

You are the Messenger.  Why are you even here?  You were just supposed to send that invoice to Rhonda in HR.  Once each night, you can send a single Private Message to the host, who will forward it to the player of your choice.  The Private Message must fit criteria before it can be sent.
I said this privately, but I'm so glad you got the Messenger role.  Nobody else would have used it for nearly as powerful of stuff.  If you hadn't been dying that night, I wouldn't have allowed you to be able to reveal yourself via codewords, but everything else was fair game and quite a powerful use of a single PM mechanic.  I'll consider it in the future for an option in no OOTC games.  You played really well despite only playing for 24 hours.  Good job!

TWG Megathread
(If you think something belongs here that you don't already see, PM me or davy!)


The goal of this megathread is to organize the entire TWG board into one manageable location.  If you're looking for a certain piece of information about the game or for a certain game of the past, it should be here!  Additionally, we run a poll during each TWG to gauge interest for the next game.  That way, hosts will know roughly what size their games should be.  Finally, a link to other NSMTWG resources are saved here for your convenience, even though they're already stickied.

NSMTWG Rules and Guidelines- Read this if you're new.
Suggestions and Feedback- If you've already read the rules and want to know something, post here.
Hosting and Balancing- If you want to host and/or get your game balanced, post it here and someone will help.
NSMTWG Discord- This is an invite to the server that NSM uses for their OOTC (Out Of Thread Communication) style games.  You can also just chill with the other members of the server or play popcorn mafia.
NSM Wiki Page- This is where you can find NSM's game history, hopefully in a way that's manageable and user-friendly.

TWG CVI: It's Been a Long Time Coming
A Mystery Game

Nine people are trapped in an elevator... wait, I feel like I've heard this before.  Anyway, the elevator is stuck between floors and for some reason two of those nine people want to kill EVERYONE!  Fortunately for the innocents in the elevator, each one of them has a super-secret power that they're hiding from the rest.  With proper use of these powers, you may be able to discover who sabotaged the elevator and bring them to justice!

Notes:
There is no limit to the type of powers a player can have.
There will be no outside communication.  After all, you're in an elevator.  If you've got something to say, everyone can hear it.
There will be no third party roles.
The setup is designed in a way to severely punish massclaiming.  Be careful about claiming any roles, as it may end badly for you.  This also extends to claiming powers.
A minimum post count of 5 posts per cycle will be enacted this game.  Failure to do so will result in a warning
Wolves have access to a pregame chat and nightchat but cannot communicate during the day.
Humans are allowed a single no lynch, that must be voted on by majority.
There are cardflips.

Prologue
Everyone stepped inside the elevator.  Someone pushed the button for the 20th floor.
"Oof, looks like we're going a long way up."
"Haha, this might take a while."
The elevator slowly made its way, the floor counter above the door pinging with each increase.
Someone asked, "Is it supposed to be making that grinding sound?"
"What grinding sound?"  Replied another.

Suddenly, with a loud SNAP, the elevator became weightless.  The emergency brake kicked in and red lights flashed to life.
A voice appeared.  "Everyone, stay calm.  We'll get you out of there in a jiffy."

Music / How to fix an upright piano
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:04:10 PM »
So our middle C key has been broken for a while and only plays when the soft pedal is being used.  I'm pretty sure I can fix it if I can safely get to the key.  I know some of you are repairpeople so does anyone know how to separate the mechanisms from the entire piano and replace it?

11. E.Gadd Industries-Brutal Wolf

Synopsis
There were several active players tunneling on each other despite not bothering to read how the arguments were actually playing out.  If they had, they would've realized that many of them were blatantly town/town interactions.  Either way, the sheer amount of infighting allowed the wolves to stay quiet and nobody punished them for their inactivity.  Specifically FireArrow, who I'm awarding Wolf MVP, would certainly have been in the middle of it all as a human, but he passed off his human meta well enough.  This roll was pretty close to balanced, but I expected the guardian to be able to block one of the wolf shots and cancel out the brutaling, which clearly isn't what happened.  I was disappointed to see wolves falling back on lame excuses and staying quiet and inactive and never really being seriously called out for it.  I'm pushing for a minimum post count of 5 per day/night cycle to be enacted to force the issue and not allow wolves to stay quiet, since personally I think of it as cheating.  If you can't make 5 posts every 72 hours, unfortunately TWG is a little too demanding for your lifestyle and trying to play is just going to cause problems in the future.  Toby's angleshooting backfired tremendously, which I hope is a lesson learned.  By definition angleshooting isn't against the rules of twg but it's very against the spirit and as such I can't condone it on NSM.  Please keep things like online stalking and timestamping to a minimum as they wouldn't usually be game-relevant parts of mafia.  Overall this game showcased why you need to put pressure on inactives because you allow wolves to win with minimal effort.  If someone is never present but still voting, take a closer look.  Sheesh.  Other things of note were increased difficulty with discord, which will be addressed in the near future.

Player Summaries
1. Olimar12345
I think your 1v1 with BDS ended up looking really bad on you for no apparent reason, which you would've been able to get out of easily by claiming, and you honestly just died due to pure dumb luck.
Quote
[12:13 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": I'm thinking greg is blue
[12:13 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": Although it might be wiser to wolf based on what makes us most likely to survive
[12:15 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": I think we should either go for greg or olimar
[12:16 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": greg is my best guest for special, getting olimar frames bds
[12:16 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": ill let you guys decide
[2:14 AM] Gerik "FireArrow": @Mikey safety wolfing on olimar
[5:13 AM] E. Gadd Industries: That’s true, but what’re the chances it’ll deflect back onto me as well, because Olimar railed on me a bit
[5:14 AM] E. Gadd Industries: I do think it would frame BDS first, though. Thoughts @Trasdegi "Trasdegi" ?
Sucks to be you tbh, but your human read on Toby would've been vital.
[close]
2. BlackDragonSlayer
You were human telling the whole time, but I couldn't TELL people that since I wasn't in the game.  Aside from that, where did you go?  Seemed really weird and if you had been here you probably would've been able to stay alive due to raeko's town read of you.  Your answers to some of Toby's questions really were a bit weird, but not in a scummy way, just in a weird way.
[close]
3. Trasdegi
Toby caught you out really good with the log edit and if you had faked a log you almost certainly would have died.  However, I don't approve of you skipping out on an entire 48 hours' worth of discussion because of the threat of the log hanging above you.  I know most days you're busy from early morning all the way until bedtime, but 2 or 3 short posts during downtimes isn't too much to ask for.  I think if you had been at a relevant level of activity you would have been caught, which is really unfair for humans.  ThatHiddenCharacter was suspicious of both you and E. Gadd for separately arriving at the same (sheeped) conclusion, so there are definitely things you can work on here.  When you have access to wolfchat, make sure you're planning ahead with your partners on what each of you are going to be presenting and develop an overarching gameplan.
[close]
4. ThatHiddenCharacter
The man with the reads himself!  Your gameplay this time around was much improved.  That being said, you were a little bit too self-aware and it came across as slightly scummy.  In the future, just try to play the game and don't worry so much about analyzing yourself- leave that to the people who actually need to analyze you.  You did a good job of picking up on Tras and E. Gadd, but your position in the game didn't allow you to push your suspicions much because there was so much focus on Toby, Olimar, and BDS.  Your analysis comes down to "you did good enough, and you're at the point where I'm comfortable promoting you from newbie to the next rank up, whatever it is."
[close]
5. BrainyLucario
You got mislynched because you couldn't be around for end of phase.  I didn't really see a reason for your lynch, but it's technically a good thing you were because Olimar needed to stay alive as long as possible.  There's really not much to talk about here because of that.  Fine job, see you next game (hopefully).
[close]
6. Toby
Dude.  Wat r u doin.  DUUUDE.  You were so close this game.  You had brilliant reaction tests on both tras and FA that you discounted almost immediately because you were tunneling on the randomest and dumbest things.  I don't need to give you feedback here because you're good enough to already know what you could've done better.  Just don't forget that someone being suspicious of you doesn't make them a wolf :P
[close]
7. blueflower999
Your suspicion of tras was accurate, but you didn't act on it and instead cost humans the game by allowing a wolf rush on THC.  Granted, he probably would have been lynched anyway but you sealed the deal.  Not having access to discord was a bit of a handicap and this is something I'm looking into in the future, also because a lot of people were complaining about having to read or reread large amounts of filler for almost no content.  You did an ok job all things considered, but if you're going to not use the discord try to be a bit more active in the future (I know it's end of the school year and all don't worry).
[close]
8. Greg
You played a really vanilla-ey game this time around, not really the gzgregory I remember teaching me how to play.  You were pretty off-base this game but you did a good job at calling FireArrow out for departure from meta.  FA adapted pretty quickly and you seemed to be a lot less suspicious of him in the end.  Overall a solid game, and the big vibe I'm getting is that you weren't really trying too hard at all, which is fine.
[close]
9. raeko
You were inactive most of day 1, but day 2 you came at Toby with everything and it was really entertaining to watch from a spectator perspective.  It's nice to have someone who can play hardball with Toby, because usually he does a good job of getting all sorts of random information out of his unsuspecting targets.  Play again soon!
[close]
10. FireArrow
Despite slipping (somewhat) concerning the presence of a brutal wolf, you played a really good wolf game and for that I'm awarding you Wolf MVP.  I specifically want to point out a few things about your play that were super good and make for a nice example of solid wolf play in the future.  Most importantly, you recognized that as a towny you'd be way more aggressive toward players and scum hunting in general.  You intitially tried this with Greg, but it didn't stick.  Next (and I really like this part) you consistently and aggressively bussed your partners.  It works so well for you because you can have that towny conviction that they're scum, and it happened to work especially well this game because of the ease at which you pushed the popular wagons as well as their unusual presence this game.  You also managed to hit a special on night 1, but I don't know if that really counts as being well played...  You did a good job at manipulating players away from your partners while still being quite aggressive towards them.  For those of you trying to get better at your wolf game, bookmark this.
[close]
11. E.Gadd Industries
inactivity sucks you cheater and toby was totally right, I honestly don't know how you keep passing it off but you've now got a 100% wolf winrate in the past 5 games from playing the exact same way every time.  Maybe you're just that trustworthy?
[close]
[close]

Update on Statistics
While I won't be publishing the statistics quite yet, concerning the past 5 games (101-105) I've got all the raw data for both players and games incorporated into a spreadsheet.  However, I'm going to add 2 more columns- Special Power and # of Nightkills.  Special power will default to 1, with a subjectively good special game awarding 2 points and a subjectively poor special game awarding 0 points.  The score will be averaged per game, so any players with a score greater than one tend to play well as specials and players with a score lower than one tend to play poorly as special.  # of Nightkills will simply refer to the number of times you've been the target of a wolfing (not a vigi or modkill) to determine how much of a threat you can be.  The number will not be averaged.

Additionally, I'm suggesting a stickied thread with a permanent poll to gauge activity.  This thread can also hold the stats as well as links to every signups/game/postgame on NSM for easier access, as well as quick summaries of those games.

The Werewolf Game / Mafia Championships: Season 5
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:39:01 PM »
INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 5)

Hello there! :)

It is with great pleasure that I hereby invite your community to take part in Season 5 of the Mafia Championship.

The Mafia Championship is an annual forum tournament series that pits representatives from various online Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and be their “Champion”.

The whole thing started back in 2013, and since then more than 225 different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

I hope it sounds like a fun and exciting event :)

1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITE?

If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to me as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot.

If you agree to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is May 1. If this is too soon for you to decide on anyone, let me know and we can work something out.

The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If it’s okay, I can link directly to the general discussion thread regarding this topic on Mafia Universe.

Important notes
  • You may decide yourselves how you want to elect your representative, but we highly recommend some sort of democratic process (public nominations followed by a poll usually works out well).
  • In addition to electing a representative, you should also name an alternate who will be asked to step in if the first choice needs to back out.
  • Your representative should be prepared for having to read upwards of 500 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, there’s a requirement that each player must make at least 10 posts per Game Day. Only active players should apply/participate. I repeat: Your chosen player needs to be able to promise a good amount of activity on a daily basis.
2. SEASON 5 FORMAT

The tournament structure
  • 170 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
  • 10 Qualifying Games will be played, consisting of 17 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st place will advance directly to the Finale Game (i.e. 10 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd places will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
  • A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 4 will discuss and vote to determine 25 players in total deserving of a second chance: 1 will advance directly to the finale, and the 24 other players will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the 2nd places that advanced directly to these. From each game, three players will directly advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote.
  • The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 5 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.
The setup explained very briefly (more details on host site)
This (view picture below) is a semi-open grid setup meant for 17 players: 4 mafia versus 13 townies. First you randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then you randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup.



*Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.

Relevant mechanics info
  • Day start.
  • Deadline Lynch w/ Option for Majority starting Day 2. I.e. when day timer runs out, person with most votes will be lynched. However, day can also be ended early (starting Day 2) if there is ever a majority of votes on one person.
  • If there is a tied lynch, one of the tied players will be randomly lynched.
  • No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).
  • Phase Lengths and Deadlines will be up to the players themselves (I’ll organize them into games with deadlines that suit their preferences).
  • Thread is locked during Night Phases.
3. SEASON 5 TIMELINE

There will be 10 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of May and June. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and I’ll make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isn’t a problem.

Wildcard games will be played in July, and the Finale Game sometime in August/September (whenever we can work out something that suits everyone).
