The game is cancelled. I received no communication from the wolves overnight, and not enough people voted during the day for me to really warrant taking any other measures like replacing the wolves.

Money entered into the prize pot shall be returned shortly.

I have not received PMs from the wolve(s). The game will have to be cancelled if you don't vote soon.

No, non voters will not be killed overnight, but they will start to suffer a series of highly unfortunate accidents after several days quiet. I will also accept requests from non players to replace absent players.

It is now dusk, no voting while I count the votes.

The crowd argues back and forth, many remaining quiet - no doubt still shocked by what happened to Satoshi - Eventually they turn against Quantumplation. They descend upon him, shouting about government agencies and corrupt fiat currencies, and lock him in the hotel safe with no food or water, but plenty of the traditional money he murdered for. Satisfied that justice has been served, they drift back to their rooms

It is now night, wolve(s) and special(s) please send your votes.

The day will end in approximately four hours

I hope Quantumplation is the wolf or somebody will die tonight.

Hiding?  I'm right here, how is that hiding.  You seem pretty eager to blame someone else...

Exactly. As we lose players I'll start making days shorter.

I guess this "day" will end tomorrow evening, and will be the longest day of them all.

I was hoping that all the playerswould call in on day one to confirm that they know the game ahs started :/

Yeah, I don't mean to rush. First day should probably be the longest so we can see if we have everyone.

is ABSTAIN an option?

You can vote for No kill, however, this is usually a bad idea since if there enough votes for no kill then no one will die (which just donates the wolves a free night of killing)

Quantumplation is just trying to get the suspicion off his back. He must be the wolf.

One could say the same for you, Kiba. You must be guilty.

Me?!  Kiba was the first on scene.... Who's to say he didn't kill him, and shout for us to belay suspicion of himself?

Could be, he doesn't seem to care much for the sun.

Sign ups are now closed, I shall be sending roles via PM shortly and then the game will begin.

The sun rose above the horizon, silhouetting the city skyline and waking Kiba from his sleep. He squinted at the light, and stumbled across the room for a drink of water before heading out of his room to see if breakfast was available yet. As he walked down the corridoor he saw the door to Satoshis' rooom was slightly ajar, he knocked and poked his head around the door. Kibas shouts of horror soon summoned the rest of the group. They were the only people in the hotel tonight, it must have been one of them who was a government agent who had murdered Satoshi to stop the release of Bitcoin, a mob formed in the corridoor of the hotel, regarding one another suspiciously...

It is now DAY, start voting.

I'm in. Also, I'm thinking Google Wave would be such an awesome way to play this (let's consider it for next round), with inline private messaging between individuals or groups of individuals, and all.

So basically a variant of Mafia? Count me in!

I believe it's otherwise known as Mafia, every forum I've seen it played it's been called "the wolf game" though.

Is anyone interested in staking some coins to become eligable for the prize fund?

There has been some discussion about building a game which uses bitcoins as an in game currency. The current directions the designs are taking is a version of the good old forum game "The wolf game". I thought it would be fun to play some game, so here goes:

This is the wolf game!
The year is 2024. A group of bitcoin users has gathered together to celebrate, tonight Satoshi releases Bitcoin 10.4 which will be adopted as the official currency of 3 countries. A huge party is had, everyone has fun. However, government agents have infiltrated the celebrations and will stop at nothing, during the night Satoshi is murdered! A mob gathers in the hotel foyer, regarding one another suspiciously...

The aim of the game is simple
Some players are "wolves", every night they send votes to the GM (me) on who they want to murder this night (only humans can be murdered). Wolves all know who each other are.
During the day the mob discusses who the murderer(s) is(are), the wolves pretend to be innocent humans and try to accuse other innocents - at the end of the day the vote is tallied up and the someone is lynched.
If you are a wolf, you must try and steer the daytime voting to get innocent humans killed.
If you are a human, you must try and deduce who is a wolf (bear in mind, people killed during the night must be human - that's the only solid information you have)

Special Roles
There are 4 special roles:
The Medic can autopsy a body that has been lynched and find out if they were human or wolf.
The Guardian Angel can guard one player every night, if the wolves try and murder that person they will fail. The angel may guard themselves.
The Seer will be told the identity of one wolf at the start of the game.
The Moderator is a well respected member of the forums and thus his votes can count double on one single day of his choice.

Special roles are revealed privately to players, the GM will never confirm any player as a special role publicly.

Gameplay
The game starts during the day, players can post and vote on who to kill, votes should be in BOLD AND GREEN, if you changed your mind and make another vote, then please go back and remove the first vote (make it normal text and I'll ignore it). Obviously voting will go back and forth, I will post warnings when the day is ending. One game day will be a couple of real days to allow everyone in different time zones to post.
The game then swaps over to the night, wolves and specials should send their actions to the GM (me) by PM, at the end of the night (when I've received votes off everyone, or when I don't have the patience to wait any long) the day will start with a big post by me explaining the events of the night.

Other rules
1. Private messaging is allowed between living players
2. Private messaging from dead people is NOT allowed, please report it to me and ignore that PM.
3. Dead people should make only one post after they die, and it should not reveal *anything* relevant to the game, it is merely for role-playing an impressive death
4. No posts should be made by anyone during the night. Anyone breaking this rule risks getting struck by lightening when out on the hotel roof having a sneaky cigarette Wink
5. In the event of a tie during the wolf voting then I will choose a random one to kill
6. In the event of a tie during the human voting then NO ONE is killed during that day
7. Any player inactive for too long will be replaced or killed
8. Sharing PMs from the GM is strictly NOT ALLOWED. If someone sneds you a copy of any GM message, then please tell me - they will be punished but you might get a reward Wink
9. Any rules may change slightly as the game progresses (special powers especially may be modified to be slightly more or less powerful) - you won't be punished for rules that didn't exist when you broke them.

We are playing for a 13.5 Btc prize fund
