since i've become hopelessly addicted to mafia, and can only involve myself in so many games at once before they all melt together in my head, i was thinking about the possibilities of another logic+strategy+human nature sort of game to play here or the brunchma forums.

i was thinking something along the lines of stock trading or monopoly, but can't think of ways to make it work. help?

Diplomacy? It's played on the GL.

Yes, on the GL there's a visitor submitted games forum. There are a lot of games to do there.

Diplomacy was actually tried once on Brunchma and promptly fell apart for lack of players (though this may have been before vergeot's time), and I don't know how well it would fit here. Vergeot, you may want to have a look at VG; just think of it as BCS with a more cerebral slant and different people. :)

One could run a Monopoly game, but it'd last verrrry long!

And about that lack of players for Dip, there won't be any lack. Although i'm experiencing lack of interest in one Romanian game i just started some other place...

If you really want to play diplomacy online, you go to www.diplom.org
It is the self pro-claimed official online Diplomacy site, but it has good reason to. Almost all the games are run by electronic judges, supervised by a moderator, so that games run very smoothly and quickly. When people dropout, they are promptly replaced (within a week). "Dedication points" keep people who drop out from playing again. Again, if you want to play online Diplomacy, play on diplom.
