Game Master’s Notes
You no longer have to place a vote with your first comment. While votes are always encouraged for Town players as it is the main opportunity to eliminate threats, it is now up to you if/when you decide to vote.
Remember, eliminated players may now return as replacements within the game if they choose to sit out of the Spectator chat. During previous games, if someone wanted to withdraw from the game or was disqualified I would have to do my best to hunt down a replacement (which unfortunately didn’t work out as often as I’d like). Thanks to the feedback on our survey though, eliminated players now have the option to join the Spectator chat OR be added to a waitlist to re-enter the game if a substitute is needed.
In other words, you can still vote off a player you’re afraid is going to be disqualified if you think that’s the best option for your team BUT don’t worry if you choose to leave them in the game. It is very unlikely you’ll lose two players in one Day. If a disqualification or withdrawal occurs, a player from the waitlist will step back in to fill the spot.
If you want regular updates about what’s going on in the game, be sure to follow us on Twitter. As you can see, it doesn’t take much for the game to take a couple of unexpected turns throughout the Day (especially during those last 24 hours before deadline). If you’re only checking the post randomly, it can be quite overwhelming. (Of course, even I didn’t have enough time to warn players of the vote chanegs at the end of Day One!) If you do not want to be tagged in these updates, please let me know.
Lastly, if you’re confused about time zones, use this link to convert the deadline in my time zone to yours! (I know, I know, time zones are a pain.)
It is now Day Two.
You have until Saturday 8pm GMT to discuss suspicions and cast your votes. Once the deadline has been reached, the person with the most votes will be eliminated.
