If we don't have enough players to run main games, we're thinking of putting main games on hold and only running unregulated minigames until we can get activity up. Please feel free to comment with your thoughts.

Hello, I'm back from a really long break. I don't really fit into any of the categories because I haven't followed the forum at all since I left, but I am interested in playing a game so long as it is relatively relaxed. So I guess I'll be going with option # 2 with a dash of #4 please.

I think a mini-game is probably better for me because I am looking for something more casual. It's been so long since I've played that I would prefer to try to ease back into the game. Time constraints and potential stress makes it difficult for me to guarantee that I will sign up for a game even if one does seem to be within the parameters I'm looking for.

I guess I haven't really made up my mind on whether to come back to the game or not yet. One option I've considered is trying my hand at just hosting games for a while. That might help me get back in the frame of mind for mafia and it would give me an opportunity to work on my creative writing.

Ive actually thought abotu hosting mini games too but wtf is balance and how do I achieve it lmao also would have to make it time out ok with my time zone

I took a hiatus earlier because of work but now that Ive seen I can do both I plan on being around? And joining every game possible. I might slow down soon though because Im about to have a lot going on. (family visiting for 2 wks, than Im going on vacation for 30 days then Im moving so I might be stretched thin soon)

+1

But yeah. I've been doing all the games I can, lately. Found I missed it after the long period of quiet.

@Aeiou+Tiki: You could always cohost, or ask one player to sit out but review your setup.

Also, hi, cthulumints!

I would be happy to co-host a game with anyone.

But also minigames are how you learn to balance. Run a game, if maf just dominates, then make maf weaker in your next game, and vice versa. No one's gonna get upset if your minigame isn't perfectly polished, that's what minigames are for.

There's also this guide that we wrote for this forum a while back that has some tips for hosting.

I have an idea for a mini-game, Kiyoko. Remember that idea I mention when planning a totally normal vanilla game?

You're welcome to host minigames whenever if you want to run one. Or ping me if you'd like a cohost

I missed signups for round 23 entirely for a few reasons; mostly it's just difficult for me to remember to check the forum when I'm not currently in a game. I completely forgot for a while while the game was running, too, having no reason to check the forum because the game was already in progress and I wasn't in it. PMs hit my email inbox, though, and 9 times out of 10 I won't miss them, so I appreciate hosts sending out PMs before games! If I don't miss them, I'll sign up for just about anything.

I also have a couple of game ideas I could throw together if we're having a hard time finding people to host games. One I'm ideally saving for round 25 (five times five, heeheehee) and the other would probably work better as a minigame; if main games do go on hiatus for a while I'll run that one.

Well, I'm feeling better now. I'll see if I can't find time to work on some old ideas. What I'd mostly want a co-host for would just be rollover, since I tend to work late, and while it wouldn't be a problem for people on the west coast, for everyone else, it'd be late if I did the rollovers.

Hmm I wonder if there is a good way to not mass email but just let people know a game is going on. I have a hard time checking the thread if Im not actively playing either. Like maybe a discord or skype group or something like that?

I personally just send a mass mail and ping everyone I have on skype. I've thought of a chatroom-like thing for it, too, though. It's not a bad idea! But not sure how feasible.
