The year is 1987. Little Squash and Little Funky have just finished back-to-back viewings of the two most awesome movies of all time.
Inevitably their thoughts turn to The Question: who would win in an all-out battle between the Autobots and the Joes?
"Optimus Prime is totally rad! He's got the Matrix, no way the G.I. Joes can win!" exclaimed Little Squash.
"Man, that's crazy talk," Little Funky insisted. "The Joes are the best fighting force in the world!"
"This is no good," said Little Squash. "How can we settle this once and for all?" The two of them sat in silence for a moment, until it dawned on them. "The power of IMAGINATION!"
Welcome to:G.I. Joe: The Movie vs. Transformers: The Movie Miniphalla
This will be a 2 faction + 1 mafia game, no conversions. The game will begin around 11PM EDT on the day the roster is filled. Vote close will be at 11PM EDT (votes must be timestamped 10:59 or earlier to count). Post in this thread in a bold and colorful manner to sign up. Standard rules apply; no anonymous contacts, no dead players speaking to live players, no editing posts with votes, and so forth. If you're not sure, ask for a clarification in bold orange
or send me a PM.
- This game will be low on specials, however everyone will have something to do aside from just the execution vote.
- This game will require all players to submit certain orders via a Google Docs form. If this is a problem for you, don't sign up.
- Players who do not vote on the first day will be replaced immediately. Replacements for inactivity after day 1 are at GM discretion.
- I have not actually seen the G.I. Joe movie in over 20 years. However I skimmed over the wiki article so I think we will be okay.
Basic role PMs:
You are...an Autobot! It's hard to say which one, though. Face it; Autobots are dropping like flies in this movie, it hardly matters what your name is. If the Decepticons don't slaughter you, it's probably because Unicron ate you before they had a chance.
Your objective is to eliminate the villains from both movies, and the Joes. Till all are one!
You are...a Joe! I can't quite say which one, though. Cobra is so incompetent that any randomly selected group of two dozen Americans could defeat them easily without trouble. You're nothing special; your name doesn't matter.
Your objective is to eliminate the villains from both movies, and the Autobots. Go Joe!
The Private Faction Vote:
The Private Faction Vote - Each night, select one player whose faction you would like to investigate using the Google Docs form located at <some url>; please do not share this URL with anyone not in the game. Your vote will be tallied along with those from the rest of your faction (including your faction's villains!). The player with the most votes will have his faction revealed to three randomly selected members of your faction. Players who vote for the winner have an increased weight in this selection; however, no player will receive results two nights in a row unless there are insufficient players remaining to avoid it. You can change your private vote by resubmitting the form; I will use the latest time-stamped record with a non-null value that was submitted prior to vote close. If you have other orders to submit, you can update your vote without changing your orders or vice versa by leaving the unchanged field blank.
Your confirmation code is XXXXXX. Please be sure to use it each time you submit the form or your entry will not count. Do not under ANY circumstances share it with ANY other players. No exceptions!
If you would like to test the form out, you may make a maximum of one (1) submission with "TEST" clearly indicated in the Other Orders field, which I will discard. If you happen to be around between the time you receive your role PM and the time the game starts, I encourage you to try it out.
Q: Are players who fail to submit a private vote eligible to receive the results?
A: No, however they are eligible for a serious ass-kicking.
Q: What the flying fuck is going on? I don't understand any of this.
I get it! You vote once in public, like so:
And once privately, via Google Docs. There will be two winners in the Google Docs vote, one for the Joe universe (good guys and bad guys) and one for the Transformers universe (again, good and bad guys). The person with the most votes' faction will be revealed to three random players from the universe in which he won.
Q: Are the villains eligible to receive private vote results?
Q: The OP states that there is only one mafia group. How many mafia groups are there?
A: There is only one mafia group.
FWD is very good at this game.
