Divergent Edition: Day Seven

BookishGames_Divergent2

Welcome to the Bookish Games, a variation of the game Mafia (aka Werewolf) that was previously hosted at A Bookish Heart and is now hosted at Oh, the Books! For each game, a popular YA book is chosen to be the theme and players are assigned different character roles and powers. Their end goal is to ensure that their team is the last one standing, even if they don’t know who their other teammates are!

If you are not signed up in the game, please refrain from commenting on these posts (otherwise they will be deleted). Instead, you can contact me on Twitter to gain access to a page where you can discuss the game with other players once they are eliminated.

THE PLAYERS

Divergent-Day-Seven

Divergent-Day-Seven-Legend

Eliminated:

  • [DAY] Holly @ A Day Dreamer’s Thoughts as Shauna, Team Dauntless, Townie (no special powers)
  • [NIGHT] Jenn as Tris, Team Dauntless, Divergent*, Jack-of-all-Trades (able to use the cop skill, doc skill, vigilante skill, or role block skill once during game)

*Note: I just noticed the key is sort of confusing. Divergent is not a separate faction, but a secret power belonging to certain member(s) of existing factions. It’s so secret, that the player(s) who have this power do not even know what it does. Which of course means I’m not going to tell you. 😉

GAME MASTER’S NOTES

Well, I don’t quite know what to say. It seems nothing I’ve said so far has helped, and now with the loss of Tris I’m starting to lose hope for Team Dauntless. Sad times.

But hey, nothing is set in stone yet! There are still nine players left in this game – anything can happen. It’s time for Team Dauntless to pull together and make a comeback… or else accept defeat.

Good luck, and may the best faction win.

It is now Day Seven. Everyone has until Wednesday 1pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated.

THE PLAYERS

Divergent-Day-Six
Divergent-Day-Five-Legend

Eliminated:

  • [DAY] Izzi as Marlene, Team Dauntless, Townie (no special powers)
  • [NIGHT] NO NIGHT ELIMINATION

Warnings/Disqualifications/Other:

  • [COMA] Holly @ A Day Dreamer’s Thoughts has requested a coma.

GAME MASTER’S NOTES

See what happens when you don’t take my advice? Last week I wrote this whole thing about being fearless and voting early… and what happened? Only SIX people – HALF of the players – voted at all during Day Five. And of course another Team Dauntless member was eliminated.

You may be at a loss, but think of how helpful that last Day was. Did you really learn anything new? Did the multiple comments saying “I don’t know who to vote for, maybe I’ll be back later” really help? Maybe they did, maybe they didn’t. Either way, things aren’t looking good.

There are TWO players in a coma this week due to exams. They do not have to meet the comment requirement for the week. You can still vote for them if you would like though.

That’s it! Good luck and have fun. Hopefully this Day is a little more fruitful than the last…

It is now Day Six. Everyone has until Wednesday 1pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated.

THE PLAYERS

Divergent-Day-Five
Divergent-Day-Five-Legend

Eliminated:

  • [DAY] Laura from Laura Plus Books as Max, Team Dauntless, Neighbor (able to communicate with other Neighbors in private page)
  • [NIGHT] Miranda from Tempest Books as Molly, Team Dauntless, Deputy (able to investigate one person each Night to determine alliance if something happens to the Cop)

GAME MASTER’S NOTES

Looks like Team Dauntless has sort of been struggling. It looked good after Day/Night One when an Erudite was found dead, but no progress has been made since. Has Dauntless given up? I hope not! Be fearless. Vote early and vote often. It’s your only chance to eliminate the evil forces within the game, and if you truly are Dauntless then you won’t let your fears for voting wrong hold you back. 😉

Good luck!

It is now Day Five. Everyone has until Wednesday 1pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated.

Warnings/Disqualifications/Other:

  • [WITHDREW] Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews has requested to withdraw from the game due to her limited availability.
  • [REPLACEMENT] Sana @ Artsy Musings of a Bibliophile has taken over for Charlotte.
  • [COMA] Amy @ Amy Bookworm is in a coma until further notice due to her limited availability.

GAME MASTER’S NOTES

Can I just say, wow! That was by far the craziest final hour in the Bookish Games yet. When I left there were approximately 150 comments on the post, and by the time I came back there were over 200. I guess I really can’t leave you guys alone for too long. (I just hope you guys have a greater appreciation for the work that goes into this game, including those silly Voting Updates. Thanks to Miranda and Nadia for trying to keep those going.)

Please make sure you took the time to look at the notes above. Charlotte has requested to be replaced due to being tied up with school work; she has been replaced by Sana. Amy is starting off Day Four in a coma as she is unsure if she’ll be able to comment at all this week. If she awakes from her coma before the day is over (notifies me that she is available to comment twice this week) then I will notify you in advance.

I’m really curious to see how this Day goes, after the explosion at the end of Day Three. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact me. Otherwise, have fun and good luck! 🙂

It is now Day Four. Everyone has until Wednesday 1pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated.

GAME MASTER’S NOTES

Hm… interesting results from Night Two. No eliminations. I wonder what that means? (Muhahaha…) But hey, better to lose no one than someone on your team, right?

You guys know what to do: voice your suspicions and vote! Good luck, and may the best team win.
