Interview with a Player: Siran

Interview with a Player is a feature in which a participant from The Bookish Games answers questions relating to their experience. These posts help players get to know each other during the downtime between games. If you’re interested in being featured in a future post, you can find the interview questions here.

Today’s interviewee is Siran (@ToukhanianSiran), a new player who helped us out greatly during the ADSOM edition by stepping in after Siena withdrew from the game. (Thank you Siran!)

Playing The Bookish Games for the first time can be quite an overwhelming experience, but even more so when stepping into a game that has already begun with a character that has been thrust into the spotlight. Siran had all eyes on her when she joined the game at the start of Day Two, and while some players may have been put off by all the attention, Siran actually seemed to enjoy it making such comments as:

“I like when people talk about me.”

and teasing a role reveal. While this unfortunately led to some Town players consistently voting her instead of looking for other targets, it wasn’t enough to stop their team from winning – and the spectators definitely enjoyed watching the game unfold with her unique style of play.

Now that Siran knows more about how the game works, I’m curious as to what she will do in future games, if she deicded to join us again. Will there still be self-imposed rules like the one she had this game where she didn’t want to vote unless she met the comment minimum? Will she be more cautious if she doesn’t have a role that doesn’t promise some sort of immunity? Only time will tell.

No matter what happens next, we appreciate Siran and her willingness to jump into this crazy game of ours during our time of need. Thanks Siran!

One thought on “Interview with a Player: Siran”

  1. Great Game Siran! It’s tough stepping into a game like this, especially after it’s already started and the person you’re replacing escaped a lynching! You had a lot of attention on you, and as a Spectator I enjoyed watching everyone trying to puzzle out whether you were Town or not. 🙂

    Vote PARMESAN killed me…
