Board is current to post #

I stole these rules from strangercoug!!

RULES
  1. The game will be played to the rules listed here. If you need a detective sheet, you may get it from this source. (I recommend printing one off even if you are in the replacement queue so catchup is faster.) The rest of these rules are additions and clarifications by me only.
  2. When you are PM'd your cards, confirm receipt by PM'ing me back in the order in which you want me to give priority in the event you have multiple cards that could disprove a suggestion. (This order may be changed at any time; just PM me with the new order.) If you PM cards yourself, you must wait for the players between you and the suggesting player (if any) to pass and I must also receive the PM.
  3. When rolling, tell me the exact path you wish to take.
  4. Suggestions and accusations must be in bold to count. If you are not ready to make an accusation after your suggestion, bold the words End turn to officially allow the next player to roll. If your move does not take you where you can make a suggestion, your turn automatically ends thereafter by default.
  5. It's blurry in the source photo, but for players unfamiliar with the board, one secret passage connects the conservatory with the lounge and the other connects the kitchen with the study.

Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

Excited! Haha.

Time to do up my google sheet to write the clues. Anybody got an existing on that they can spare?

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

To speed up the game, would it make more sense to make the revealing of card automatic?(This may be suboptimal strategy for the player revealing if he has 2 cards(Not very often) but will speed up the game alot)

E.g.
If Person A guess Scarlet,Revolver,Kitchen and Person B and Scarlet and Revolver, The mod will randomly choose between Scarlet and Revolver to reveal.
(the mod will pm the person revealing and the person who is being shown the card what card is revealed?)

What do you guys think about this?

I think we should have a default card reveal order that is to be used unless we pm the mod something different.

This sounds good!

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

Also, do we wanna make it a best practice to do conditional end turn?

So something like,

end turn if someone shows me a card may be very useful in the first 2 round to speed up the game play (We can make our turn in one post and the next post would be the other person)

I would prefer not to have a default card revealed. Also is there a rule preventing us from revealing the same card to someone a second time if we have the option of revealing a new card? (ie do we always have to reveal a new card if possible)

yeah !!!
i like this idea

In post 10, enomis wrote:The mod will randomly choose


too much intervention if i rand it post-setup imo
there's a distinct strategy in card reveals


In post 11, NoPowerOverMe wrote:I think we should have a default card reveal order that is to be used unless we pm the mod something different.


but i'm a big fan of this
when i do pm's in like 1-2 hrs time i'll send them to you in the order i rand the setup. if you want to change your reveal preference order at any time, pm me and i'll update it with immediate effect.

big big big fan
as long as conditionals are explicit and public (e.g. "i end my turn if someone shows me any card.", not e.g. "i end my turn if i gain new information") i'm vry happy to act on them.

there's no rule against that at all, i think it's kinda optimal tbqh





tryna spin best of both worlds. how about everyone's reveal order is pre-set (e.g. if you rand ballroom kitchen library i will set 1. ballroom; 2. kitchen; 3. library from the start) but you can have me update it at any time

so we have the strat of automated reveals in order, and also the potential for them to be updated

if this suits everyone, just one question re. resolution. want me to go strictly off timestamps or allow for customisation before resolving suggestions?

in this case for example if we had
12.00: player one makes a suggestion
12:01: player two asks me to update their order
12:05: i log in and see both requests

which would people want me to action first? instinct tells me that it would be better to do player two's order update first to allow more leet strats

I agree with allowing the update to go through, since it would be similar to someone deciding which card to show in the real game which does occur after the suggestion.

My concern with the auto-reveal order is that my order is likely to be different depending whose turn it is? and so i’d be pming you after almost every person’s turn to update my order for that specific person on the off chance that the suggestion comes to me to reveal a card. isn’t it easier to just have me select which card i want to be revealed?

basically my thoughts are the same as NPOM's; it works out well for very active players but i think having x-month long games with manual selection is probably more damaging to the gamestate than slight loss of optimisation

that's v personal/subjective tho so idk

starting hands are out!

please confirm your hand, and let me know if you have a preferred order other than what i have given you.

if i don't hear back, your cards will be revealed from the top down as appropriate. :)

I think you can send your auto-reveal preference based on players?

So 5 auto reveal preference on each player.

and as of this post, we officially begin!!

to take your turn, please:
  • roll 1d6
  • state exactly which tiles you'd like to take (e.g. roll 4 => south east north west; roll 3 => 3 tiles east; etc.)
  • confirm if you are entering a room/using a shortcut
  • confirm if you are making a suggestion
  • state whether you are happy to end your turn, or conditionally end your turn

if you are not entering a room or making a suggestion, the next person may take their turn (order proceeds down the player list).




miss scarlet, would you please do the honours? :)
