[Mini-Phalla] Duck, Duck, Phalla! - Game Over, Ducks Win! (Again)

edited May 2009 in Critical Failures
Hello everyone! Welcome to my first attempt at running a phalla! We're going to be going back to our childhoods for this one, with a rousing game of:

Duck, Duck, Goose!

500px-Duck_Duck_Goose.jpg

This will be a fairly straightforward game of Phalla with all the standard rules applying. There is one distinct difference though: the mafia, played by the goose, is only a single person and they have a win condition they must meet. If/when they meet it, they will leave the game victorious and a new goose will be chosen. The game will continue until the village successfully votes out a goose or three or less players remain.

Before anyone signs up, I must give this warning/rule:

This game requires a fairly high level of participation. In addition to the village's votee being kicked out of the game, the person with the least number of posts each day will be removed.

In the event of any ties, either with the vote or the least number of posts, losers will be selected by RNG. There is no trickle down, so if the person with the least posts is also the one with the most votes, only they will be eliminated.

Assuming the game fills up by then, the game will start Sunday at 9pm CDT (In approximately 23 hours from this post). There are up to 15 spots, first come, first serve. If there is enough interest, I could be persuaded to increase the number, but we'll see how things go. !Sign up in some colorful manner.


Player Roster:

1. [strike]simonwolf[/strike] - Duck - Eliminated Day 2
2. kime
3. jackisreal
4. [strike]TehSloth[/strike] - Duck - Voted out Day 2
5. Kay
6. Orange Soda - Goose - Victorious Day 2
7. crimsoncoyote - Goose - Victorious Day 3

    Well that's fine. And remember, this is like that whole scenario where a bear is chasing after you and your friends. You don't have to be the fastest, just not the slowest. (For the metaphorically-challenged, you don't need the most number of posts, just can't have the least.)

    I constantly say this wrt to classes when somebody gets a 70 and the median is like a 55. "Cheer up, dude. You don't have to beat the bear."

    I'm thinking about pushing the start back until tomorrow night. We're still a couple people short of the 12 I wanted, and thinking about how I've got this set up, getting more people than that would give the village a better chance of winning (as it extends the potential length of the game by a day per 2-3 people). I'll leave it up to you guys though, if we can get at least 2 more in the next hour-ish, we can start today, or we can hold off til tomorrow night.

    Thoughts?

    Alright, we'll push it back to tomorrow night. I don't want anyone to be too unfairly disadvantaged because it started in the middle of the weekend.

    And I'll also take as many as 15 people. I could push it higher than that, but I think I'd have to add a second goose to the equation if we did. We'll see how many people are interested by tomorrow night and run with it from there.

    Are our postcounts reset after the game starts, or is it the total post count that will be used to see who gets kicked off for having the least, meaning that we should indulge in muchos pre-start chattery?

    It is daily post-counts, so any pre-game chatter will not affect anything.

    When you say the game requires quite a bit of participation, would any of it be time-based or be mandatory in / around vote close?

    Not especially. The biggest portion of that is taken care of by the person with the least number of posts in a day being eliminated along with the person voted out.
