Harry Potter Edition: Day Nine

Welcome to the Bookish Games, a variation of the game Mafia (aka Werewolf) that is hosted here at A Bookish Heart quarterly. 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!

Eliminated Players

From Day / Night Eight
(Full list of eliminated players can be found here)

  • [DAY] Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews as Iblis, 1x Strongman (given one unstoppable game to use in the game for team’s Night kill), Team Dementors
  • [NIGHT] Miranda @ Tempest Books as Lee Jordan, Townie (no special powers), Team Dumbledore’s Army

Game Master’s Notes

On one hand, Team Dumbledore’s Army seems to be on a roll with the amount of evils that have been eliminated in the last few days. On the other hand, the amount of reveals yesterday only seemed to add to the confusion and it’s hard saying where they will go next. With only eight players left, this game is definitely getting closer to its end. Will Team Dumbledore’s Army hold onto their position or will an evil force work its way through to victory?

It is now Day Nine

Everyone has until Wednesday 4pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated.

  • [NIGHT] Laura @ Music Plus Books as George Weasley, Paranoid Cop (all investigative results at Night show “Not Team DA”), Team Dumbledore’s Army

Game Master’s Notes

Congrats Team Dumbledore’s Army! You did what I thought would be impossible and actually voted a bad team player off. Can you do it again? And how many more times do you need to do it until it’s over? So many questions, and only one sneaky person who knows the answers….

Eliminated Players

From Day / Night Six
(Full list of eliminated players can be found here)

  • [DAY] No eliminations. Holly @ A Day Dreamers Thoughts had majority votes and was revealed as Harry Potter, Unlynchable (cannot be voted off during the Day), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT] Nara @ Looking for the Panacea as Zacharias Smith, Vengeful (if voted off during the Day, whoever she last voted for is eliminated with her), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT]  Lauren @ The Prince of Ink as Lucius Malfoy, Goon (no special powers), Team Death Eaters

Game Master’s Notes

I must say, I am starting to think it’s anyone’s game. Not necessarily because of Team Dumbledore’s work (I mean c’mon, Harry Potter was almost eliminated…), but because the evil forces are starting to realize that the only way they can win is by eliminating each other.

With only 12 out of our original 32 players left, we’re starting to get in the home stretch. These next few days will really help determine who saves or destroys Hogwarts!

Eliminated Players

From Day / Night Five
(Full list of eliminated players can be found here)

  • [DAY] Leanne @ Literary Excursion as Whomping Willow, Serial Killer (able to kill one person each Night), Investigative-Immune (if investigated, results show innocent Townie), 2x Bulletproof (cannot be killed the first two times she is targeted at Night), Unaligned
  • [NIGHT] Kelley @ Another Novel Read as Bellatrix Lestrange, Goon (powerless baddie), Team Death Eaters
  • [NIGHT]  Nikki @ The Paper Sea as Vitsuga, Role Cop (able to investigate one person each Night to determine role), Team Dementors

Game Master’s Notes

Wow! I guess all you have to do is admit you’re losing a little bit of hope and things suddenly do a 360. Not only did one of the evil forces get eliminated (a serial killer), but two others were revealed through the deaths at Night (Team Death Eaters and Team Dementors). Could this mean that Team Dumbledore’s Army could really win after all? I’m not completely convinced.

It’s a little disturbing that Leanne was taken out with only four votes. I mean, if she would have jumped in during that last hour and changed her vote to Holly there would have been another tie and she could have avoided elimination. So even though Team DA has gotten lucky these past twenty-four hours, they still have a lot of work to do…

Eliminated Players

From Day / Night Four
(Full list of eliminated players can be found here)

  • [DAY] Daphne @ Winged Reviews as Katie Bell, Townie (no special powers), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT] Rita @ Weaving Pages as Ron Weasley, Mason (able to talk to other Mason in private room anytime), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT]  Mel @ The Daily Prophecy as Luna Lovegood, Doctor (able to protect one person each Night), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT] Jenn @ A Glo-Worm Reads as Dennis Creevey, Role Cop (able to investigate one person each Night to determine if special ability exists), Team Dumbledore’s Army
  • [NIGHT]  Orli @ Blame my Bookshelf as Dean Thomas, Townie (no special powers), Team Dumbledore’s Army

Game Master’s Notes

At this point, I have little to no hope for Team Dumbledore’s Army. It would be nice if the remaining players somehow managed to pull together, but wow! Fifteen eliminations have occurred and every single one of them has been from the good guy team. What is going on?! Surely we have to be getting somewhat close to having an evil player eliminated?!

Of course, I have to admit that the evil forces in the game have been playing this masterfully. This game is much more complicated than the last, and the good guys aren’t getting any extra help (because really, in v. The Hunger Games, the serial killer I had truly did help the good guys when the game). But it’s not over! With so many kills happening in one Night, it does seem that there has to be at least two evil forces in the game, whether serial killer + evil team, evil team + evil team, or some other random combination. (With my evil brain, you can never know for sure!) Surely these evil teams will have to target each other eventually?
