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.
- [DAY] Lillian as Sybil Mira, Team Luna, Roleblocker
- [NIGHT] Maraia as Human, Team Earth, Townie
GAME MASTER’S NOTES
Oh my gosh, a baddy actually got eliminated! Good job Townies! I was starting to doubt if you would be able to pull yourselves together long enough to get one right. 😉
You have plenty to work with going into Day Four now. Using Lillian’s comments, references to Lillian other players have made, and the voting updates, you should be able to form some thoughts on how certain players may be aligned. There’s no guarantee that looking at all that will lead you on the right path to eliminating another Mafia member, but it puts you in a much better place than if another Townie were eliminated.
Of course, you did lose another Townie as a result of Night Three. Though Maraia did not have any special powers, she was quite active and analytical this go around, so maybe looking back at her comments may help you as well.
And for the Mafia member(s) still alive in the game, hang in there. It may be discouraging losing a teammate this early, but the game isn’t over until I say so. I have confidence you can still cause a great amount of chaos in this game. Good luck. (Not that I’m rooting for the bad guys or anything like that. I would never. I just thought since I give the Townies a pep talk every week, the Mafia deserves a pep talk this week as well.)
Have fun everyone!
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.
