As you all know, games take a long time to review. So I have inned to mod my first game but I have an idea for a large theme that I would like reviewed by the time I am able to in it for signups. So I am looking for reviewers for a cool large theme with some interesting mechanics. I am trying something that I think could be a lot of fun. PM me if interested. [pls]

I'm looking for at least two reviewers for a Mini Theme with flavor based on Pokémon Sapphire. All roles are normal and the game uses standard mechanics so this should be a pretty straightforward review. Please shoot me a PM if you'd be interested in helping out!

No longer needed. Thank you to Alisae and callforjudgement!

Looking for someone to review/back-up a mini theme:

In post 3941, Socrates wrote:/in to mod

Game Name: A Village in the Woods

Flavor/Mechanics: This will be a complex, flavor intensive game where not everything is as it seems. Players signing up should be beware that there may be mechanics at play that they may not be made aware of and they may not have a clear idea of every aspect of their role.

Your Experience: Open 242
Current Modding Commitments: None
Reviewed By: Looking into
Back-Up or Co-Mod: Looking into
Number of Players: 13
Hydrae: No more than 2

Restrictions: Due to the complexity of the game, I am requiring at least 2 completed games.

Is it possible your game has any of the following bastard roles or mechanics? cults, mid-game alignment changes, moderator lies that cannot be reasonably anticipated (for example, Godfather, Tailor, Miller, Ninja, and mechanics like that are generally fine. Telling someone they are a reflexive doctor when they're actually a PGO is not), secret win conditions, un-divulged non-randomness in player role/alignment generation, direct moderator influence during the game

Expect ambiguity, but no direct lies. I reserve the right to refuse to answer any question, though you are certainly welcome to ask.


If you would like to back-up/co-mod, don't worry about writing flavor and such. I'll be handling all of that, and will have the vast majority of it written out beforehand. Help with votecounts wouldn't be scoffed at, though. >.>

I decided to dust off and finalize a setup idea I've had for a while, Roles That Don't Work Mafia, which I'm planning to run as a Micro. As the name suggests, the game is full of roles which, for whatever reason, don't function correctly or are otherwise broken (in the sense of not working). It's a Closed Theme, so needs to be reviewed in private.

I'm now at the stage where I could use a reviewer (ideally one familiar with smaller games) to check that the setup makes sense. (I'll also be looking for a backup moderator, but this doesn't necessarily have to be the same person as the reviewer.)

When you /in to mod in the Normal queue, you'll be assigned a review team who can help you with the setup. As such, there's rarely a need to have the setup reviewed separately first.

(A good guideline for a 10:3, though, is to pit 4-5 mid-strength Town power roles against a vanilla or near-vanilla scumteam.)

I am looking for a reviewer for a Rocky Horror Picture Show large theme cult (don't run yet!) game.

it will have some unique mechanics and almost no flavor

It's important to know that I mostly hate cult games (unfair, frustrating, painful, etc.) but this game should be something that is not hatable for those that generally hate cult games - it's very different and balanced. If you are going to review it I want you to have no real interest in Rocky Horror Picture Show more than anything, because if you like Rocky Horror, you should be signing up for the game even though it's cult!

game-specific rules and mechanics:

CULT - Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult movie and this will be a cult game based on that movie. It shouldn't be any other way!

public cult mechanics:

  • There two cults / 2 cult leaders. Once recruited into a cult, players' alignments can not change again.
  • All players except the cult leaders start as part of a neutral survivor faction.
  • Not all roles are cult-recruitable. Most players will not know if their role is cult-recruitable unless recruited.
  • Players will use their vote to choose who to make immune to recruiting. This can be done x# times in the game, a maximum of once per play/pause cycle - (instead of lynching - there is no lynching) !

DAYLESS - it is always Night over at the Frankenstein Place. The game thread is always open.

PLAY / PAUSE - the game cycles between these two states

  • PLAY: players may submit actions and vote
  • PAUSE: players may not submit actions or vote - once pause initiates actions are resolved in the order they were submitted during the PLAY state
balance among all things

Would like a reviewer with good knowledge of general setup balance for a themed micro based on Splatoon. The game has no experimental elements.

EDIT: taken care of!

So...I'm back at it again. Designing a mini theme for my next game. It will be short and sweet with a crazy mechanic. It will be a big laugh. Sign up to review to be let in on the secret.

Hi, I have a mini theme setup that I designed mostly on a whim and I want to /in to mod while the queue is short but I'd like to have at least one person to look at it before I do that.

It's not very complicated or anything, and I don't need a super thorough review, just a quick look and possibly some minor changes should be great.

Since it's proving difficult to get a review for a Large Theme, I've got a modified Mini Theme I'd like to get looked at. (The request for the Large is still out there though.)
