Well, nobody else was doing it. Hope I didn't miss any pitches!

Poll will be open for... awhile? Until this weekend at least? So that's cool. Only vote for the stuff you'd be willing to play in, so we can have a decent head count. Do vote for more than one! There was talk of having two games, but we can figure out how that will go once we start seeing the numbers.
Now let's hope I know how to make a poll with this thing.

The Possibilities Or as they say at the Pasta House, The Pastabilities.
Alpha Werewolf's Mao Mafia (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1092732&postcount=5455).
Yimothy's Mafia: The Mafia (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1183313&postcount=5751)
poetfox's (that's me!) Paranoia Mafia (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1182931&postcount=5739)
Destil's The Thing II (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1009048&postcount=5125)
Solitayre's Problem Sleuth Mafia (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1182236&postcount=5658)
Mogri's Player's Choice Mafia (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1182405&postcount=5694)
Brickroad's The Organization II (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1158667&postcount=5609) (With a little help from Eddie!)

What happened to Talking Time vs. Bronto Mafia?

What happened to Talking Time vs. Bronto Mafia?

I'd have to find the post, but I thought they took that off the table for M16.

I noticed a major problem in the Problem Sleuth pitch:

You better pose as a team….because shit’s about to get real.

You don't pose as a team before shit gets real. You wait until shit gets real, then you pose as a team. Posing as a team before you know how real the shit is is a exercise in pointlessness. (Because shit may never get that real again.)

I suddenly find myself very skeptical that Sol can run this game when he is so obviously clueless of the source material.

Start date for M16 (rat-tat-tat-tat)?

Also Talking Time vs. Bronto Mafia is all in Guild's hands right now.

A sound argument.

I have a question about Paranoia Mafia: are the horrible mutants Troubleshooters, or Secret Society members? Either? Neither?

Krakenbrau

I will play in whatever wins.

Secret Society members. Mutants would be the power roles (Detective, Angel, etc.) of the game, and each side can have some.

Problem Sleuth is definitely my favorite for this round. It'll be nice to have a ruleset I can wrap my head around from the start.

Dizzy

I didn't read it at first but then I did and... what? I should have pitched in my Party fucking Mafia. I don't know why people are going nuts over this one.

Something we discussed post-M15 was the desire to have a smaller game with a simpler ruleset. I pitched PS Mafia specifically to cater to that desire.

That said, wow, it looks like my thing might actually win. I certainly didn't anticipate that! I may have to adjust things if more than 18 people sign up for it...

Mogri
11-09-2011, 10:21 AM
Given that 17 people have voted for it...

I am ready for the Problem Sleuth Mafia times. The poll is going to be open until the weekend, but I guess it's in your court, Solitayre, when you want to start calling a start to this shindig?

Organization or bust. I still think it's broken, but at least I know the deal going in.

I'd be ready to start as early as tomorrow night if it's okay with everyone.

Also it's been like seven years since I GMed anything so please bear with me!

Nich typically sets the poll for 72hrs before it closes and a victor is declared. Just FYI.

Solitayre
11-09-2011, 07:41 PM
It's not unfeasible to me that the Organization could still win so I'm just kind of following you guys' lead. I'm still new to your system!

Dizzy

Oh boy! You can count me out then.

Yeah I prefer Nich's self-imposed tyranny over these situations.

I am totally winging it because nobody was stepping up. Don't let me push things forward if people want to wait! I'm pretty sure the poll is set to close on Sunday, if you all want to wait until then.

Is anyone else going to vote for problem sleuth now that it's presumably full? Kind of disadvantage for size limited games, I guess.

Solitayre
11-09-2011, 11:11 PM
Yeah I was kind of concerned about that, I don't really want to have to tell people that they can't play...

Kayma
11-10-2011, 02:09 AM
Any chance you could break it into two games?

Dizzy
11-10-2011, 12:45 PM
Any chance a game can begin in mid-December? I will be in top form then and plan to make JohnB look like he wears pink panties.

Brickroad
11-10-2011, 01:41 PM
Er, JohnB does wear pink panties.





I have photos.

Mogri
11-10-2011, 01:47 PM
Sol: If you need help scaling it up, I'm sure someone with more experience than me could help. If it's an issue of flavor, then you could either split the game or get creative with the roles. (I would personally have no objection to playing as a bust.)

McClain
11-10-2011, 01:54 PM
This is somehow going to end up with me re-reading PS, isn't it?*

If the game splits I can try to talk Michelle into playing in the opposite game as me. :)

*I have no problem with this!

Solitayre
11-10-2011, 02:01 PM
If we get thirty-two people interested in playing, I would run two games.

I would probably need help though...

schep
11-10-2011, 04:03 PM
I think there should be two games, but not necessarily by the same mod / with the same flavor / etc. Because games with too many players are usually less fun.

JohnB
11-10-2011, 04:10 PM
Er, JohnB does wear pink panties.

That's okay. I know Brick's cockring size.

What would the minimum number of players be for Organization II?

Brickroad

What would the minimum number of players be for Organization II?

No minimum. But I wouldn't run it alongside Problem Sleuth, because I want to play Problem Sleuth, and there's no way I can run one game while playing another.

That's okay. I know Brick's cockring size.

JohnB was all "shit Brick I left my cockring at home can I borrow one of yours" and I was all "sure thing fool" and he was all "what the fuck is this a hula hoop I cannot wear a cockring this large, Brickroad you are crazy".

Destil

May be a bit much to assume everyone who voted wants to play, we've gotten in trouble with that before. May be able to just ask if anyone who voted isn't planning on playing, though.

(I want to play)

McClain
11-11-2011, 04:04 PM
I would go ahead and call it, post a player list based on the voters and give people a chance to bow out or sign up. I'd start sometime tomorrow.

I'm in whenever it starts.
