THE AGE OF SPIES

NB: the below flavour is just there because I love the sound of my own voice!
This is a standalone & easy-to-learn game, and there are no requirements to play. :]
If you are confused please scroll down to "So what is Spyfall?"


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Citizens of the Mish Mash, I have a question to ask you this evening.

What is this crazy world coming to?


Last week, a crypt was vandalised by an alleged KGB agent. An agency which disbanded 27 years ago.

And then this week!

Two CIA defectors are arrested in a bank.
A bank robber is appointed as a senior security officer.
On the other side of town, a seemingly harmless office building is bombed.
A corporate party resulted in 120 businesspeople inexplicably losing their memories.
Baroness Elizabeth Judith Pennywhistle III has been institutionalised for insisting a block of solid gold helped her save the world.

What madness could possibly be next?!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


So what is Spyfall?Adapted for MafiaScum by & stolen from Beefster

Spoiler: THE BASICS
Spyfall is a social hidden-role game. One player is secretly the spy, with all the other players having a location and a role that is relevant to the location. Players take turns asking questions to each other, trying to figure out who the spy is without revealing the location. Meanwhile, the spy is trying to figure out the location without seeming like they do not know where they are.

Spoiler: GAMEPLAY
At all times, it will be some player's turn to ask a question to another player. You should address the player with an @player and bold the question with it. When you respond to a question, you should quote the question and then answer it after the quote. After the question has been answered, it is your turn to ask a question. You may address a question to anyone other than the player who addressed you.

At any time, players can cast votes using [ vote ] tags, indicating that they think the voted player is the spy. If at any point 6/8 players have voted a player, the game ends. If the player chosen by the vote is the spy, then the town wins. Otherwise, the spy wins.

At any time, the spy can declare that they are the spy and has one guess at the location. If they are correct (reasonably speaking), then the spy wins. Otherwise the town wins.

If any moderator deadline is set and then reached, and neither of these conditions has been met, the spy has one shot to guess the location. If they guess correctly, the spy wins. Otherwise the town wins. The spy will have 24 hours to make their guess.

Unlike the face-to-face version, you will be able to talk freely about your suspicions, HOWEVER, you may not ask questions freely. Be cautious with this as it may reveal the location or your identity as the spy.

Please, no encrypted text. If you take longer than 24 hours to respond to a question addressed to you, you will be prodded.

Spoiler: SAMPLE PLAY
Suppose it is Alice's turn to ask a question and the location is the zoo.

Alice wrote:@Bob: How do you deal with all the loud noises?

Bob wrote:
Alice wrote:@Bob: How do you deal with all the loud noises?

I usually just tune them out or go somewhere else.

@Carol: How much do you get paid for working here?

Dave wrote:I think Bob is the spy
VOTE: Bob

Suppose Carol is one of the animals

I don't really work. I sit around all day by myself.

@Dave: What is your favorite food?

Typically a game will go longer than this, but hopefully that gives you an idea of how this should work.

Obviously I prefer to play but if this becomes an ongoing thing I can be one of the mods to give everyone a chance to play.
