Game Master’s Notes
Well, this has been quite an unusual start to the Games. There have been no deaths!
I can assure you that will eventually change. Eliminations definitely are possible. They haven’t been removed for this edition of the Game. They just haven’t happened… yet. Maybe you’ll be the not-so-lucky first?
Also, did you notice the replacements? We have three lovely players joining us as replacements for individuals who have decided they could no longer participate in the Games. The replacements have been given the same roles and information as their previous counterparts, but obviously having missed the first Day they may need some time to catch up. (This is especially the case for Siran, who I am sure will be under the spotlight after the results of Siena’s Day One vote.)
You can still vote for them to be eliminated and ask questions in hopes they might know the answer, but just try to be understanding that they’re stepping in with a disadvantage from not being here Day One.
Apart from that, I do want to remind players that this game is all about having FUN while going CRAZY. Players are going to wrongly accuse each other of things and bump heads at times – that’s totally understandable. Just please do your best to be respectful and patient.
(Remember: Not everyone is on your team and some players out there have the goal of purposefully twisting the words of the innocent. It’s what makes this game equally parts frustrating and fun.)
Also, please do not respond to the Bookish Games tweets while alive in the game. This is just a general rule that was initiated in previous editions to ensure gameplay does not carry over to social media and everyone has equal access to see what is being said.
That being said, you can always DM a moderator (Asti, Inge or Crini) or The Bookish Games twitter account to discuss the games. Whether it’s a reactionary GIF or you just need someone to sit there and go “uh huh” while you sort through your thoughts, we are always here to talk! (And unlike private convos with anyone else, talking to us won’t be breaking the rules. We’re good at remaining neutral.)
Okay, I think that’s everything. I’m exhausted at the Day hasn’t even yet begun. Let’s do this!
It is now Day Two.
You have until Sunday 9pm BST to discuss suspicions and cast your votes. Once the deadline has been reached, the person with the most votes will be eliminated.
