By titling this thread "MM17 Voting Thread," you are showing favoritism.

I approve.

What's the rule on voting for your own pitch? Yes? No?

I need to take some time off, but I went ahead and voted for Thing II because I will find the time to play it if it ever wins. Otherwise, I'll chill in the lounge this time around.

I can play Org 2 with weird hours, so it gets my vote.

Plus this way I can spend all my money on a gun and kill dtsund.

Brickroad
12-20-2011, 10:05 PM
I voted for airships and ponies.

Sorry WormRider, but the last Persona game melted my head, and it's hard to play Mafia without a head.

And just so as we're clear, we don't want to start nothin' until January, yes?

Sorry WormRider, but the last Persona game melted my head, and it's hard to play Mafia without a head.


The last game was based on the original Shin Megami Tensei games, whereas this game is based on Persona 4, which are not at all related other than sharing the name and list of Personas.

Plus, I made all the rules non-secret just for you!

I'm one of those people who vote on everything though, so I can't speak a lot here.

EDIT: except for ponies. Sorry poetfox, I know it's just the flavor but I find My Little Ponies repulsive. Probably has something to do with my dormmates spending too much time watching it.

elementalpenguin
12-22-2011, 12:03 AM
I voted for My Little Mafia not because of the flavor, but because its setup seems balanced and fun.

I vote for the organization II a second time.

Does that count? It should count.

Brickroad
12-22-2011, 11:08 AM
Wait! I think I have the solution!

Greetings, everypony. We trust this missive finds you well.

We would first like to extend our gratitude for your many years of friendship. You have proven time and again to possess exactly the kind of honesty, loyalty, kindness and infectious laughter we demand of all our very bestest friends.

Hmm, maybe not.

breakman
12-22-2011, 11:11 AM
Well...is there anybody who voted for either of those games, but doesn't intend to play (or run) it?

BlueZoidberg

I will break the tie! Now Blue Zoidberg is the popular one!

Who is this "Merus" who's voting for stuff?

Umby
12-22-2011, 12:32 PM
Hm, now it's between the lesser of two evils. Organization II, a crazy item-based not really mafia game, or a good looking mafia game based upon Ponies. Considering I already voted, and Ponies is one of my votes, I cannot break the tie. Somebody has to!

poetfox
12-22-2011, 12:44 PM
Goodness, the suspense... I clearly picked a bad time to get pointlessly invested in the outcome this poll. What should we do if it ends tied? Fistfight? Endless bickering? Cheeseburger-eating contest?

Destil
12-22-2011, 12:49 PM
Fight to the death, naturally.

Is there an end date on this poll, Sol? Doesn't look like there is...

Umby

"This poll will close on 12-23-2011 at 02:53 PM"

McClain

They cancel each other out and we play Thing II.

Merus is playing?

*giddily claps*

Finally, we'll get to see some intelligence in these games.

THING II PLEASE

PLEASE?

dwolfe
12-22-2011, 01:33 PM
Wait...I meant to vote for poetfox's mafia as well...I guess I missed a checkbox. So I officially cast a vote poetfox, and toss my name in to play.

dtsund
12-22-2011, 01:40 PM
THING II PLEASE

PLEASE?

You won't catch me voting for a game in which so many people have their win condition change so drastically! It's one thing when one person might get converted, another entirely when half the town can be expected to. Brickroad's cheeseburgering was practically built in to the rules.

I'd probably still play, though.

Nodal
12-22-2011, 01:46 PM

I swear to god if people don't play the games they voted for I will raise such a fuss.

We clearly have to play both games at the same time.

But, wait...

Karzac
12-22-2011, 04:37 PM
I'm gone for the first week of January, so there's a chance I might not be able to play. I voted for Organization II and Thing II, if that makes any difference.

WormRider
12-23-2011, 08:57 AM
Personally I would prefer The Organization II to run now and wouldn't mind at all if My Little Mafia become the next game since I'll have January almost free but get increasingly busy after that. That's already reflected in my votes though.

Solitayre
12-23-2011, 12:39 PM
If we consider dwolfe's unofficial vote for Ponymafia, it appears My Little Mafia is the winner.

The floor is yours, poet.

Dizzy

What tie? dwolfe intended to vote for Ponymafia, and I believe we should respect that intent.

Dizzy
12-23-2011, 12:50 PM
Is something wrong with the poll then? Why is there still a tie?

Brickroad

He actually voted for Pat Buchanan.

Dizzy
12-23-2011, 01:11 PM
Can I officially rescind my vote for My Little Mafia then?

EDIT:

I change my mind.

I officially keep my vote for My Little Mafia.

dwolfe
12-23-2011, 02:10 PM
I actually thought My Little Pony said "Ron Paul" and couldn't bring myself to check that checkbox ;)

Mogri
12-23-2011, 02:30 PM
I'd play Ron Paul Mafia.

You are the Federal Reserve. You are part of Big Government. Each night, you may change interest rates, causing the economy to crash and burn.

You win when Big Government matches or exceeds the Citizens.

I'd play that so hard.

poetfox
12-23-2011, 05:34 PM
So are we calling this official? Everyone accept these results?

I hope?

Let's see, I had a .gif I had saved for this situation just in case it happened... ah, here it is.
http://i.imgur.com/80eF9.gif

Anyway, we aren't starting this thing until the new year, because, you know, we should be sane about it. Once I get my work schedule for the first week of January, so I know I'll be there the first night of the game in case something weird happens, I'll pick a start date. Sound good?

Let's see what fabulous players we have this go round so far... based on who voted, and breakman's statement that he'd play but wasn't going to vote for mine, we have a player list that currently looks like... this.

According to my MATHS I need about 4 more players to really keep things even, if you all are up for it. Otherwise I might need to do some fiddling.

Meh. If you can't get 4 more players, I guess I'll play, since I probably won't play M18. But I'll pretend that I'm Megaman. I hope you don't take that as disrespect for the flavor, even though that's exactly what it is.
