View Full Version : The Ad Hoc MSN werewolf game - please move

Almost entirely what it says in the title. Every so often (maybe once a week), we should do an ad hoc version of werewolf classic on MSN. It seemed to work really well on the time we tried it, and takes around 10 minutes a game for a 10 person game. Hopefully, we will have more people on the next try, and was a very interesting game. So, what days could you try this? I was thinking on a Saturday, but could run them on almost any say.


((note: amount of special roles depends on people. Rules for werewolf classic are here, (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2107559&postcount=1) in the first spoilers.

Well, count me in for the next one. I just had the chance to sit and watch carefully for a while...

Depending on the time, I'm in.

You'll just have to poke me to get on Trillian...haven't been going on it as much recently...

Alarra

Oh, did that work out well then? Sorry that I didn't have the time to play last night. I shouldn't be as busy next time you try, although weekends are much less likely.

Man, I was crying it was so funny!

I have the honor of first lynching. Shadow had the honor of first night kill.

Khaldan - you did AWSOME running that!

THAT is/was complete entertainment!

i only got to play once, damm you and your needs to wake up early.

Vonriel
2007-08-29, 12:07 PM
Heh. I would've played, but I came in too late. And then I couldn't even watch because MSN decided to kick me out of the chat. :smallsigh: Anyway, yeah, count me in for next time.

to: www.msn.com (http://www.msn.com)

set up a free hotmail email account

then set up an msn chat account

A lot of us use it to coordinate in WW games.

I'd be willing to host one on AIM as well. There can never be too much real-time Werewolf going on. :smallbiggrin:

Ooo, that would be fun as well.

Maybe an "official" Werewolf chat room or something?

I'd be up for both, although what with school starting soon, the best time for me would be Weekends.

Hey, if I started the chatroom for the boards on AIM, I'd love the honours of starting the Werewolf 'un. :smallbiggrin: I was planning on weekends or early evening (read: GMT -5 (GMT -4 in Daylight Savings) evening) during the week.

I'll see if I can join. Maybe on a weekend I stay up long enough.

Khaldan
2007-08-29, 03:32 PM
Well, i may have blown up aim, so I couldn't run any of the games over there. On MSN, I am perfectly fine with running them, and at any time that is after 4 pm MST. or noon on weekends. But it was fun, and actually worked better than i thought it would.

must.. run.. next.. one..

Count me in over the MSN.

I'm in for the ones over msn.

evnafets
2007-08-29, 07:52 PM
In fact, lets have one right now...
On the MSN chat. PM evnafets@hotmail.com

Woot! Was a little slow starting, but once we got going it was mad crazy werewolf mayhem! Three games managed. Last one was the best. Never trust a woman's husband when he says that she's just a plain villager.

Khaldan
2007-08-29, 09:31 PM
And the wolves win two straight games, but fail the third. Alarra is a freaking god at who she should protect. So, for these games, we need at least 9 people to make it fair. Next date shall be Friday, August 31.

I know you guys are all in the US which, with the timezones, makes it a little tricky to chat to you all on MSN, but nevertheless I'd like to add and be added to a few MSN lists so that potentially I can use it to co-ordinate in forum games as well as play in live ones.

Evnafets, I've added you already. My email/MSN is jontomxire at yahoo dt co dt uk.

Hope to see some of you on MSN.

P.s. at the moment I am spending evenings stuck in a hotel in Israel - well, not all evening, just between work and supper. Normally I'm not on MSN that much, but if I see a lot of you guys on, might be on it more.

What time do you usually play?

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-30, 06:04 AM
Hey - I really thought she was a villager. Sorry!

Uh, somewhere between 7-10 Central standard time.

Castaras
2007-08-30, 06:04 AM
Damn. Looks like I won't be playing one of these then.

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-30, 06:26 AM
Well, maybe you can have a WW game at an easier time? You just need about 10 players (or so if you want baner, and we all want a baner) and a game master.

Just post a name and a contact account name here (like Efvanets did - that dirty werewolf) and have fun!

B-Man
2007-08-30, 06:31 AM
I think the first AIM werewolf chat will start this Sunday at around Noon EDT (-4 GMT)

Castaras
2007-08-30, 06:31 AM
Hmm...well more 2-5pm GMT+1 is better for me, although I'm not sure what that would be in EST...

Maybe 7-9pm as well.

On AIM or MSN, I don't mind. Both are found in my profile.

Edit: Sounds good to me B.

whitehelm
2007-08-30, 10:24 PM
Friday, Saturday, and Monday I'm at work all night and on Tuesday and Thursday I get home at about 8:30 Central. Other than that I'm in.

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-31, 07:41 AM
That was a great game again last night! 3 games, the drama, the lynchings, the lies - oooh! Very entertaining.

We may do it again tonight. If you see me on: andrefairchilde@hotmail.com send me a chat invite...

Ideally we need more than 10 players though. Playing with 7 players means 1 wolf, and pretty much 2 day phases.

10+ means Scryer, a Baner and more than 1 wolf. There's a formula somewhere.... I'd appreciate if someone could post it.

Skippy
2007-08-31, 07:47 AM
Last game was really confusing. Fun, but confusing. Llama got killed about three times and the wolves were not found until the very end... Pretty good wolves, if I may say so...

((Yes, I was a wolf last night))

Alarra
2007-08-31, 07:58 AM
It's evnafets uncanny ability to be a wolf in every game. How? Seriously? I mean....I've only seen/played in 5 now and he was a wolf in 4 of them...

Skippy
2007-08-31, 08:05 AM
Yeah, no one would have suspected of him, so it was perfect. Our only mistake was not killing Alarra on night two... We had Llama already...

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-31, 08:40 AM
Well seeing Llama and Indy innocently killed first day/night for the first two games in a row was kind of, um well it was WW so that's normal...

Can't remember the site I used to go to for numbers but I think it's something like this:
5-6 people: 1 wolf
7-8 people: 2 wolves, 1 seer
9-12 people: 2 wolves, 1 seer, 1 baner
13-16 people: 3 wolves, 1 seer, 1 baner
17-20 people: 4 wolves, 1 seer, 1 baner
21-25 people: 5 wolves, 1 seer, 1 baner
Of course those numbers need to be adjusted depending on what other roles are added and smaller games are usually tilted towards favoring WWs.
Perhaps a hunter-like role for smaller games that results in a villager win if he/she ends up alone with a single wolf at the end to even the odds?

Vonriel
2007-08-31, 10:30 AM
One of the games last night used a ghost jury when it got down to the last two, but that one was also rather hectic as myself and Khaldan (the original narrator) kept getting lagged.

Skippy
2007-08-31, 10:50 AM
It was because nobody realised that the wolves had won long before that... But yes, the Lag from Hell did indeed confuse us all...

2007-09-05, 03:47 AM
Are there going to be any more games like this? I wanna have a go at one of these games some time...Stupid timezone...:smallfrown:

Alarra
2007-09-05, 04:02 AM
There should be, yeah....They seem to happen with some sort of regularity. We'll try plan one when you can be around. When are you on usually?

Castaras
2007-09-05, 04:04 AM
From now on, it's probably gonna be from 4:00pm - 9:00pm GMT+1, although weekends I should be on from about 10:00am - 9:00pm...With breaks for lunch and tea and such in the middle...

Alarra
2007-09-05, 04:08 AM
Okay, well....the problem with that, is that most of the time we do these in evening/night GMT -5/6. So, in order to play while you're around, would have to be say, in the middle of the afternoon for us....which perhaps we can pull off on weekends. Or maybe there's more people that are in other time zones that want to play one? I know I'm never around in the middle of the afternoon anyway....but we can probably try schedule one sometime. *waits for someone with more involvement in planning/running these things to come reply*

Tormsskull
2007-09-05, 06:03 AM
I need to get into some of these as well. Maybe they could be semi-scheduled so that we know when to be around? I'm GMT -4 and weekdays I'm around from 6PM-9PM or so (depending on stuff).

B-Man
2007-09-05, 09:17 AM
Moving really hit my internet connectivity bad. I apologise for the lack of AIM Werewolf on Sunday. I could host it in the afternoon (in fact noon-hour EDT (-4 GMT)) today, but I'm not sure if I could get a minimum of 7 players. ::shrug::

I'll be on-line (until 14:00) if y'all want to prove me wrong.

Andre Fairchilde
2007-09-05, 09:26 AM
Basically, we just throw down whenever we have enough people on. They can be hosted whenever... I may not be playing much for the next six weeks.

Khaldan is usually on and itching at Mountain Standard Time 6-9PM most every weekday.

Just post a time, and a way to get a hold of someone that will be online - I know that a few people like Cassie in Great Britain/Europe would like to play - same as those in the Pacific.

Madmal
2007-09-05, 09:30 AM
i have a 3 hours rest between my two classes today, and i'll probably spend at least 2 on a pc. Let's see if i manage to get into one.
If not, i'll try later at night.

Dallas-Dakota

I'd like to play in on one, it looks great fun.
So I think I am in the same timezone as Cassie Becouse I live in The Netherlands.
Noons on Wednesday and Friday are free of school, though on friday I sometimes have DnD sessions.
Online mostly in evenings to, most saturdays and sundays fine for me.

Attention Werewolf Participants!

B-Man is keen on hosting an AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) Werewolf session today until 13:00 EDT (-4 GMT). Interested parties should wander over to the chatroom called WerewolfnITP. The first game will start when I have 7 victims lunches players.
