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] Kaniesha @ Deux Lectrices as Human, Team Ravka, Townie (no special powers)
- [NIGHT] Maraia @ maraiazoo as Heartrender, Team Ravka, 1x Vigilante (can kill one person during one Night in the game)
- [COMA] Alexa has requested a coma for Day Four as she will be out of the country. There is a tiny chance she may be able to get online at some point if there’s decent internet connection, but players should assume she will be absent for the duration of this Game. She can still be voted out.
GAME MASTER’S NOTES
I want to commend everyone on their great work overall during Day Three of the Bookish Games. Every single person met the comment minimum and voted during Day Three, which always makes Asti a happy person. Though the discussion ultimately did not lead to the successful elimination of a Mafia member, it helped keep the game moving and should have provided plenty of food for thought going into Day Four.
WE DO HAVE AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THOSE WITH NIGHT ACTIONS! Our blog will be transferring servers next week and will be unavailable for forty-eight hours starting Wednesday night. While the blog may still be live, we have been encouraged to not post any new content (including comments) as things may get lost in the process. As a result, we have had to make different accommodations for those who operate at Night. Please make sure to check your emails if you have a Night Power or the ability to communicate at Night for the new arrangements during Night Four. If for some reason you haven’t received an email, please make sure to contact me.
For those who only operate during the Day, this should not affect you. I do want to share the same warning as I did during Day Three though: As our blog is currently struggling with some server issues (hence the transfer), it is encouraged that you type your comments into a different area before submitting them on the blog – type them in an email, in a Word document, or other alternative. We are not expecting there to be any commenting troubles, but it’s better to have a copy of your thought-out comment saved incase something does happen rather than dealing with the frustration of losing it all and having to type it again!
Thanks again for everyone’s participation (and understanding) 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.
