I am bringing back Lounge Werewolf.

You do not need to have played before. I will explain as we go along. It is largely a game of simple interpersonal trust and negotiation. You can see the previous action in this thread. However, please do not play unless you are okay with the following rules:

1. Daytime goes from 10 AM Eastern to 10 PM Eastern. Night time is the opposite. You must be able to check in at least once every day AND every night, seven days a week. If you do not answer my emails during these times, you will cause a delay of the game and annoy some already-bloodthirsty villagers.

2. Play for your team to win. Do not engage in suicidal behavior even if you think it’s funny.

3. Do not get too cute about strategy. People get angry if they think you are hurting the team. Please do not make people angry. If you have a brilliantly counter-intuitive strategy you need to be able to explain it well.

4. Do not attempt to speculate about my motivations for making one person or another a werewolf. I swear to you that I am using a random number generator.
4a. CW is a werewolf.

5. Do not attempt to speculate about factors outside the game. I do not want to see anything like “JGLB’s user profile says he hasn’t been on the site since last night, so he couldn’t have been part of the werewolf vote”. I will obfuscate the timing of my announcements to prevent this logic from working anyway.

6. YOUR VOTE WILL NOT BE COUNTED if it is not in the form of “I vote to kill [name].” or “I retract my vote to kill [name].” I am not going to count hanging chads, nor delay the voting while I wait for clarification. You could hurt your team this way, which violates rule 2, so do it right. “I have to go with CW” is not a vote. “I’m thinking CW” is not a vote. “CW.” is not a vote. If I’m feeling charitable I will point out hanging chads and suggest that you amend them. But I might not be feeling charitable once the murders start.

Who is in? Seven or more players is ideal although a three-player sudden death is kind of fun too.

I’m in.  I vote to kill Paul D.

PS - do emails go to our BTF mail, or can we get them to an email that we actually check?

Lacking any other way of contacting you, I’ll start with your BTF mail. I am happy to use any other email address, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, telephone, telegraph, or strip-o-gram. Just BTF mail me and let me know.

At each step I’ll tell you exactly what you need to do but it’s based on this.

Sorry, I phrased that unclearly.  I have played quite a bit of internet WW, and had some techical questions, rather than how does this work type questions.

Nothing that would change my being in, just curious.  I guess I could just read the thread you linked.

Actually, to get things moving faster, please contact me and let me know how you want to communicate privately. BTF mail is fine. If we’re friends on Facebook and you prefer that, that’s fine too.

I see four players so far.  We only need one more for a quorum. Please contact me and let me know what kind of off-BTF communication you prefer.

I am not in on this one, as I have not developed sufficient immunity to iocane powder to ensure my victory. But it will be entertaining to watch the rest of you.

I have contact information for Flounder, Daryn, and CW so far. Still need to hear from Scotto, Bourbon Samurai, and Accent. And preferably one more player.

And I wonder if we were ever good enough
It hit me last night in this song I heard
I remember the feeling but forget all the words.

JLAC makes 9. That’s an odd number so we’ll close it there. Now I just need to hear from Bourbon Samurai and we will be off to the races.

OK, hopefully we can officially start this thing at 10 AM Eastern tomorrow. Then it will end by 10 PM on the 30th at the latest.

Hi, I’m a swarthy stranger, perhaps you need some chores done and you can pay me in food and lodging.

If we start with a daytime, can we assume the seer hasn’t seen anything and the werewolves don’t even know who each other are?
