Hello all!

I'm intending to create a new format up game. This may already already be done, if so awesome...

There will be 2 types, which I want to develop, I will be the "Game Master" or whatever in each one, and each game will be practise.

It will not be about winning what-so-ever, and hence practise.

Ok, so what the hell is it?

Type a) There will be say... 6 players. Each player will be PMed information on who their ally is, it's not public so they can try and use that to their advantage, it might be say, a secret 2v2v2. This may or may not work, so if it needs spice I will be adding in additional rules, such as... Secret targets (you must kill these 2 players to win) and/or secret protectors (you must not let these 2 players die) or a mix, or whatever...

Type b) Special rules and win conditions. If you've ever played Mafia, then it's this. If you haven't, then basically imagine 6 players all with secret agendas and win conditions. Both of these types will have overlap and will need development but have potentially limitless possibilities.

Note: This is NOT about strategy, tactics, or actually how good you are at playing Warlight. It's 100% about talking to opponents, working out what their motives are, who you can trust, who is going to back-stab you, etc... The only way I can think to describe it is like a "Pure Diplomacy"

What I need:

A life.

Players who are willing to help test out these games and who are actually interested in playing them :)

I'm going to probably talk to some of the RP clans, as it ties in with that sort of thing, but I think it would also be a laugh for many players, hence making it public too :)

These games won't have PEs, if anyone breaks any rules I give out then the game will be void. The player will be removed from the system and a new game will start. Simple and easy. As I said, these games are not about winning. Well, they sort of are, but in a different way to normal. The focus should be on the discussions than the troops :)

I'm interested, so long as it's not too much of a time commitment. (No more than a move a day, let's say.)

(I have a tentative plan for a Mafia game of Warlight myself, but I haven't ironed out the kinks just yet...)

I'm interested :)

Actually I don't think I have the time...you note its time consuming...so I would be a bad tester for this. Talk to me during spring break.

Good luck though. Keep everyone posted on how its going!!

I will keep people posted! :)

Thanks for the sign ups, there's enough here to start something, I will start things super simple to begin with and I can always add complexity, there will be a lot of talking (pretty much a "talking" match, in fact!)

Poir, I would be interested to know more about that, maybe we can combine our ideas? I think Warlight would be a great format to build Mafia games on :)

I'm interested. I don't think type A in the form you describe has been done before. Invite me to any games you make.

Ok, I'm setting up the first two matches, each with 6 players, when I get 6 more I will set up another, and keep going, hopefully improving the template and mixing around players as it develops :)

Please bear with me if I mess something up!

How you want to PM the players in 2on2on2 which secret alliances they have? You must also join to the game and take some places on the map. And you really want create games just for others all the time? Furthermore the aim to protect a player which is not allied with you could be a big problem, because he could attack you or what do you want to do for him, if you are far away from him. And to have the aim to eleminate a player ends like in a normal FFA, just less interessting, because you would randombly win if someone is beaten on the map and you needed him to be beaten, in a normal ffa you would fight someone, and after beating him, the cards get new shuffeled, because you dont know where is your next opponent you meet and how strong he will be, what makes ffa games interessting.

I more like the idea to have a rule in ffa games, which forces an alliance by beaten an opponent. The beatened player in this alliance just only would try to help you to win, at the end of the game, as soon as all opponents are beaten, this/these player(s) must surrender. If a player get 2 times beaten he must surrender.

Im argue against it.

As more specific you make a condition to win as more you ignore them and just try to win by fighting, it will never work like you think. And how do you think you can make 7 categories. Eleminate a Player, take specific Territorys, a other Player must survive, take a number of Territorys.

Some players are into that sort of thing, you don't have to join games you don't like, but equally, you should leave others to play games they enjoy.

tbh I think it will get better as more varied goals are added (for example, take X bonus and hold it for 5 turns or something like that), and it might be better with more players. Eventually, these games should have 3,5, or 7 categories of goal, and players are randomly assigned a goal from each category. Then, players wouldn't ever lack a chance to win, and guessing which goals people had would be more interesting. I could say to someone, "I need to invade you and take this bonus and hold it for 5 turns, then you can have it back. Meanwhile, can I help you with any of your goals?" The other player would have to make an interesting decision then: Am I really just taking that bonus, or am I trying to kill him. If I just need the bonus, he can gain a lot by letting me take it. However, if I need to kill him, taking that bonus would be a pretty good start.

Was there actually a risk variant about missions? There are too many variants... I can't be bothered to know them all.

Yeah, I've never played Warlight before, all those 255 were lotteries that I lost.
