The Big Picture
The unthinkable has happened once again: the moderators have given the power of character creation to the players. Each player is participating as a book character of their choice along with whatever role they think best suits the character. And if you thought the moderators were crazy with what they come up for each edition of the Games, just wait until you see what the players brought to the table.
Who can you trust when anything is possible? That’s a good question and one, sadly, we don’t have an answer to. Good luck players. You will all need it before the end.

- Day One – A random button’s appearance added a little excitement to the Day, but for the most part players were just… stuck. Finding little to work with some players used a spinning wheel to place their vote and while it seemed like Anna would be the first to be eliminated, a last-minute claiming of her innocence by Beth helped swing votes to Nicole. And, unfortunately for the Town, Nicole was revealed as their bodyguard. Whoops.
- Day/Night One (Masons)
- Night One (Mafia)
- Day Two – After a slow start, votes mainly piled in on Maria, Anna, and Amber. While it looked one of the latter two were likely to be voted out at deadline, a handful of players decided to force a tie at the last minute stating they thought both were likely Town. No elimination occurred.
- Day/Night Two (Masons)
- Night Two (Mafia)
- Day Three – Going into Day Three, Town learned of their first Night casualty (RIP Anne) and the deaths didn’t stop there. Between our first ever mid-Day death (Kritika), an unexplained EOD death (Greg), and the Day’s lynching (Amber), three additional Town players were eliminated during Day Three. Ouch. (Votes were mainly split between Amber and Anna for this Day, a repeat of the previous Day.)
- Day/Night Three (Masons)
- Night Three (Mafia)
- Day Four – Day Four started with a reveal: Shannon claimed to be a Medium and have information from the dead that Megan was not Town-aligned. Some players were critical of this reveal and chose to vote Maria instead, but Shannon managed to scrap enough votes to ensure Megan’s elimination. (Though unfortunately for Maria, surviving the vote didn’t mean she survived the Day.)
- Day/Night Four (Masons)
- Night Four (Mafia)
- Day Five – Day Five started with an unexpected death: Beth was eliminated and revealed as a Town Mason and Cop Enabler. With only four players left alive, players struggled to gain the majority needed to secure an elimination. The Dat ended with a tie between Kerrie and Anne with both receiving two votes each.
- Night Five (Mafia)
- Day Six – Another Day, another early unexpected death: Kerrie was eliminated and revealed as our second Marcella from Team Marcella! With only three players left alive, this vote was the most important yet. Fortunately for Team Town, Anna and Shannon teamed to together to vote out Harker and while on its own wasn’t enough to ensure Harker’s elimination, removing their 1x Deathproof ability was just what they needed to ensure the Town’s win.
