Looking for a Large Social Game to play? Want to see what games are entering signups soon? Ready to run your own game? This thread will tell you everything you need to know.



How to add a game to the Queue

This thread is for games that are currently ready to be run. If your game is seeking co-mods or you just want to see interest in a theme, please use the Upcoming Game Ideas thread.

First off, please make sure you meet the requirements to moderate a Large Social Game:

  • All games must have two people on the moderation team. It is up to you how the division of duties will be handled. If you've had previous moderation problems, you may be required to bring on a third co-mod. Even if not required, the LSG listmods highly recommend you bring on a third co-mod. It's not required, but it is best practice.
  • If anybody on the moderation team has never moderated a game before, then it's up to the listmod in charge if they want to require a third mod.
  • All moderators must have at least completed one game onsite or been a member of MafiaScum for at least 3 months.
  • Unlike the Mafia queues, off-site games MAY be counted towards moderating experience at the discretion of the Large Social Game moderators.

When your game has reached the first milestone, it can enter the queue and have a listmod assigned. Various milestones have been set to manage game progress.

  • MILESTONE 1: Your game has a logo, forums are created, and a basic game outline has been created. The outline doesn't have to include challenges, but will need to include number of players and initial twist ideas. At the point where you're ready with this, you submit your game to the queue, and a listmod is assigned to your game. Your game is added to the "current/upcoming games" list in the queue thread.
  • MILESTONE 2: Forum skinning/graphic templates are completed, challenge ideas have been filled in, and twists have been finalized. The listmod in charge will give a time frame of when your game will run and announce a game classification:
    Spoiler:
    Complex or Bastard Game: 17+ points
    Advanced Game: 11-16 points
    Standard Game: 6-11 points
    Vanilla Game: 0-5

    4 points each
    Idols & Items: Idols and unique items/powers are heavily prevalent in the game and exceed previous qualifiers.
    Communication Methods: The way communication occurs significantly changes the foundation of how the game will be played.
    Swaps & Game Shakeups: The game is in a fairly constant state of flux, or there are extreme methods of game shakeups.
    Eliminations: Multiple elimination rounds will be common, and/or players will be expected to be voted out in non-traditional methods.
    Mechanics & Twists (count double): The game will feature multiple unique/themed mechanics that are mostly or entirely secretive and players should expect to be surprised by design.

    2 points each
    Idols & Items: Idols could be re-hidden, or there could be more than one idol per tribe / Items & powers in this game are fairly standard.
    Communication Methods: PM communication exists, but there are incidents of cross-tribal communication, or unusual communication methods/restrictions.
    Swaps & Game Shakeups: Tribe swaps occur frequently, or there are non-traditional game shakeups.
    Eliminations: Players should expect that there will be occurrences of multiple eliminations in a round, or players being voted out in a non-traditional methods.
    Mechanics & Twists (count double): Mechanics/twists in this game should be expected, but they will be partially explained ahead of time to allow players to play around them.

    1 point each
    Idols & Items: One idol per tribe, maximum, with no re-hiding of idols. / One or two items exist
    Communication Methods: Communication is mostly limited to PMs, and is strictly on tribal lines (not including potential challenge smack talk).
    Swaps & Game Shakeups: Tribe swaps occur with more frequency, but there are no more than 2 swaps {16-20 players} or 3 swaps {20+ player}.
    Eliminations: There's a potential for more than one player to be eliminated per round, based on who is voted out.
    Mechanics & Twists (count double): Mechanics/twists only include twists/mechanics from the TV show, and/or any new mechanics/twists are fully explained ahead of time.

    0 points each
    Idols & Items: There are little-to-no hidden items or idols in this game, with no re-hiding of idols. / No items are present.
    Communication Methods: Communication in this game is strictly limited to PMs.
    Swaps & Game Shakeups: There is only one (or none) tribe swap in the game.
    Eliminations: Players will be eliminated once per round, based only on who is voted out.
    Mechanics & Twists: Nothing in this game would be surprising to see on the first few seasons of Survivor (TV).
  • MILESTONE 3: The game is fully completed: challenge writeups are done, intitial posts/permissions have been setup on the forums, and the game is ready to start. At this point, your game is ready to fire in the queue and casting may begin when it fires.
The purpose of a review is to have an objective person make sure there are no glaring flaws with your design. You are not required to change your set-up if a reviewer makes suggestions, but it is highly recommended that you take their guidance under advisement; a lot of times a fresh set of eyes will notice unbalanced mechanics or challenges that will fail to run smoothly that you and your co-moderators may have missed.

Finally, please post answers to the following questions:

  • Game name -
  • Moderators -
  • Number of players -
  • Link to your game's logo -
  • Game outline and major twists have been established -
  • Listmod in charge (to be filled in by LSG listmods) -
Spoiler: Blank question list
Code: Select all
[b]Game name -[/b]
[b]Moderators -[/b]
[b]Number of players - [/b]
[b]Link to your game's logo - [/b]
[b]Game outline and major twists have been established - [/b]



Once you have answered these questions, congratulations! Your game will assigned a listmod and its status reviewed, then it will be added to the queue!



When will my game be ran?

Right now we are currently trying to stagger the starts of the games, depending on interest from players and how many games are currently in the Queue. The general rule is that a new game will go into signups when the most recent game to have already started has eliminated 50% of the starting players. However, if there is a shortage of games ready to run, we may stop staggering.

A game's position in the Queue is based entirely on when it reaches Milestone 2 and what the listmod in charge determines to be the appropriate time frame.

Does this game feature unusual mechanics that players should be aware of prior to signing up? - PMs have been removed from this game and instead will feature small groups during each phase (more than just task day); there are no PMs in this game; PMs have been disabled and this is heavily featured in the rules post and application; Medevac's stamina and camp day returns; 12 hr deadlines for some phases.
Challenge posts are completed - 90% complete, but then again - challenge posts for this game are pretty much all the same.
Challenges have been tested/reviewed and are playable - Playable yes. All featuring stamina system.
All reward items have been reviewed and approved? - Still in review with our reviewer.

We are ready to run immediately.
Sup, later.

This is a queue like the Large Theme Queue is a queue -- that is, when a game is open for signups, it'll be posted in its own signup thread.
Also, these games are anonymous, so you sign up through an anonymous form!
