    Basically this is a forum game that will stretch out over a number of days. It is a game of survival, teamwork and backstabbing.

    Teams

    The Politicans - Around 1/4 of people playing.
    The Citizens - Around 3/4 of people playing.

    Rules

    Day - During the Day, the Citizens deliberate over which suspected Politican they wish to nominate for execution. The Citizens want to execute a Politican but all players are allowed to vote so its the Politicans job to try and trick the Citizens in to voting to execute one of their own.
    Each Citizen and Politican can vote, can only vote once and cannot vote for themselves. Citizens and Politicans vote for someones execution by saying their name in BB Code. For example "Mr Dangermouse" if you want me to die.

    Night - At Night the Politicans decide which of the Citizens they want to murder and that Citizen is killed that very same night. Politicans will do this by PMing eachother and then PMing me once they have decided. The said Citizens death will be revealed the next Day.

    Note:
    Politicans know who is on their team but Citizens do not.
    All deliberating amongst Citizens MUST take place in the properly assigned thread.

    Different Roles of the Citizens

    Doctor - The Doctor can choose to save one person, per Night, from death. They will do this by PMing me that persons Username during the Night, so that person becomes immune to dying for that one Night. They can not save themselves. He must keep his identity secret.

    Detective - The detective PM's me a random number every night from 1-5, if he guesses the correct(pre selected) number I will reveal to him the identity of 1 randomly selected citizen. He must keep his identity secret.

    How To Win - 2 possible outcomes

    If All of the Politicans have been eliminated. The Citizens win.
    If the number of Politicans and Citizens becomes equal. The Politicans win.

    I have no idea what any of that means but I'll give it a bash since I'm home-bound these days anyway. (As a citizen, I'm not an MP this term.)

    I used to ace these in real life, but here… the absence of behavioural clues makes it a game of chance, does it not?

    Just to confirm, are we playing it so that every Night EVERYONE has to PM you? That is, Citizens have to PM saying "Checking in" or some such? Otherwise you have the old time stamp problem?

    Not really, it is more cat and mouse, with the doctor and the detective controlling the fate of the game(They should really be the main targets of the politicians)

    You can check the timestamp for when people are online, so if all the Citizens make an agreement not to log on for one day, either the Politicians reveal themselves or you end up in perpetual forfeit.

    But the citizens don't know the teams, the citizens aren't able to differentiate between citizen roles or politician roles, only the politicians are aware of who is on their side.
