HEADDESK SO DAMN HARD.

I WAS GOING TO GUESS THAT LAST ROUND IF THE DIE ROLL HAD BEEN HIGHER.

(Also, signing up for round 2)

In fact I'll be using another story/setting/board/data packets each game to prevent monotony.

About the simultaneous gameplay stuff, I've thought of these changes:

1) In each round, instead of having every player go turn by turn, everybody rolls his dice (visible in the post). Then everybody sends me a PM with their actions (move where + suggestion). After everybody has PMed me their actions, all the actions are publicly revealed, then the next round starts.

2) When a player makes a suggestion, the respective player is NOT moved into that section. That way you can plan your route through the rooms better.

3) (optional rule enforcement) A player can roll an additional die once in a game.

4) Gadgets...? (Stuff like +1 Die Roll, 1x Teleport, 1x Suggestion Anywhere, 1x View Opponent's Data Packet). Could make it more interesting, though also more unbalanced.

The only problem I'm facing with this method would be the accusation. If multiple people accuse in the same round, who would win? It'd be possible that a player makes a suggestion with the answer just to be sure that really nobody has those data packets, and then everybody could just make that accusation.
Perhaps again - a PM in the previous round, stating you want to accuse after your suggestion?

I'd say no gadgets, and for accusations, just order them by the order you recieve the PMs.

Fastest one to the punch is a bit lame for a turn based forum game. I kinda take part in this since I know my time zone won't fuck me over if I take my turn a few hours or a day later. :/

I'm in for next round.

The moment I saw I was wrong I knew what the right answer was. D'oh.

It was a coinflip but I couldn't pass up the opportunity since I know someone else was likely close to finishing as well.

Fun game though

^Karis: Yeah, that's why I tried not to include any sort of "First come, first get" thing anywhere.

I'd know a better solution: There's a room in the center of the board (similar to the Display Case we had), and to make an accusation, you need to be in that room. Basically, in your turn, instead of suggesting, you go into that room and make an accusation.

That would eliminate the possibility with the "everybody accuse at once" thing, because nobody knows where you're headed for your round, or when you're headed for that room.

Also, any objections against using a fourth kind of card - that is, if the number of players increases beyond 6?

I thought of something like motive or the likes. But, once again, no idea inhowfar it would interfere with the game's balance.

We can increase the player limit, right? Otherwise, it might just be the same six players and that wouldn't be fun for anyone else

Or if we can't (since a large number could make things too complicated), maybe we could just allow anyone to sign up until the game starts, and then have Ramon randomly choose six?

Or at least give preference to players who did not participate in the previous round.

Okay, I know I said I wouldn't be reachable, but it seems the tables have turned and now I just wanted to specify on singing up.

If I introduce the simultaneous gameplay thingy, pretty much any number of players can join. With the classic turn-based system, it would take a little too long with over 6 players. Personally, I think I'd prefer the simultaneous gameplay version. Gotta try it first, though.

Of course, with increasing amount of players the amount of data packets will increase as well (hence I suggested introducing a fourth set). Going to plan it out once I know how many people join (though it doesn't look like anybody else is interested).

I'm back, and I guess I'll be making the next board soon.

So as far as I can tell, 5 players this time? Would you guys (and gals) like to choose a specific setting for the next game?
