View Full Version : Cry Wolf!!!!

Okay.

This is how the game works.

The shepherd (me) will randomly choose one player to be The Wolf and secretly inform this player (via PM) that they are the Wolf.

The rest of you will be The Sheep.

The goal of the sheep is to correctly identify and vote out the Wolf.

The goal of the Wolf is to remain undetected and deflect suspicion away from themself, causing the sheep to be voted out (see below.)

The game will proceed as follows:

1. In each round, a player will accuse another player of being The Wolf.

2. The accused will have an opportunity to convince the rest of the players that s/he is not the Wolf, and that the accuser is in fact the Wolf

3. The players will choose to vote out either the accuser or the accused.
* Any player may abstain from voting in any given round.
* Votes will be tallied 24 hours after the accused posts their defense.
* Other players are allowed to comment on the thread during the accusation / defense / voting process.

4. I will reveal whether the player voted out is The Wolf or a sheep.
* If the Wolf is voted out, his/her opponent wins, and the game ends.
* If a sheep is voted out, they must leave the game, and another round starts.

If The Wolf makes it to the final two, all the previously voted out players will return to vote in a final attempt to identify the Wolf. Based on the vote, either the Wolf or the sole remaining sheep wins.


Although impossible to enforce, it is expected that players do not communicate with each other about this game except on this thread.

If you wish to play, please post on this thread before 11 PM EST on Friday July 26, at which time the game will start. :)


Remember: This Game is all about DECEPTION.

Can i be the wolf

Abi
07-25-13, 11:42 PM
Lol.

The identity of the Wolf is secret.

Only I (and a non-player auditor) will know who the Wolf is.

The Wolf has been chosen, and informed.

Peripatetic is acting as a non-playing auditor.

So.. let round 1 begin.

Do we have an Accuser? :)

Do we get any clues? What has the wolf done to be accused of?

What happens if we accuse the wrong person?

I don't know how to play this game .... aaaarrrrrrgggggggrowl !

:yes:

And ... I hereby accuse Ms. Mango of being a WOLF in disguise.
And, uh, doing WOLFY type stuff. Okay, lady, defend yourself.

Abi
07-26-13, 07:56 PM
Do we get any clues? What has the wolf done to be accused of?

The Wolf hasn't done anything. S/he is just THE WOLF

What happens if we accuse the wrong person?

The other players will decide whether to vote out the ACCUSER or the ACCUSED.

So, if you accuse the wrong person, you COULD be voted out, or you could stay, if the members vote out the person you accuse (even though they are not the Wolf, they get ejected)

The flipside is, even if you accuse the RIGHT person, if they convince the voters that they are not the Wolf, you get ejected, and their identity as the Wolf remains secret.

Abi
07-26-13, 07:59 PM
Okay.

Ms. Mango, you have been accused by Lunacie.

You have 24 hours to defend yourself. {Tho please try to do so quicker}

Other players may comment.

Lunacie may NOT withdraw her accusation.

Ms. Mango

I don't know how to play this game .... aaaarrrrrrgggggggrowl !

Hmmm....I think I'm the one who smells a rat, er wolf.

Don't know how to play the game? I think you're the wolf. You didn't waste anytime casting doubt in my direction, probably in an effort to throw suspicion off yourself!

Nope, not me!

Abi
07-26-13, 08:41 PM
Okay, players may now vote.

Do you think Ms. Mango is the Wolf?

Do you think Lunacie is the Wolf?

Do you wish to abstain? Say so if you do.

Lunacie, Mango, and othersr may continue to post opinions / defence during voting.

Voting closes when one person has a clear majority of votes against them, or 24 hours after the time of Mango's post #25 above.

Try to vote as soon as you can tho :)

That's not wolf smell, it's burned pizza. Oops. :doh: I know you can tell the
difference between wolf and burned pizza smells. You're trying to look all
innocent and na´ve, but it won't work. Clearly you're the wolf.

You're supposed to vote for either MS MANGO, or LUNACIE.

Voting for someone means you think they are the WOLF and want to vote them OUT OF THE GAME.

As stated, you are allowed to abstain.

OK Abi :o am I allowed to unabstain and vote for one of them or is it too late :doh:

Abi
07-27-13, 09:08 AM
You ARE allowed to "unabstain:, and vote.

BTW, this applies to all abstainers. However, those who have voted may not change or withdraw their vote.

Here's a photo of me ...
Now does this look like a wolf in sheep's clothing to you?
Or does it look like Ms. Mango is pulling the wool over your eyes?

I'm going to vote for Ms Mango simply because I don't think anyone else has voted for her apart from Lunacie (just to make it fairer) don't like it when things are unfair :(

Abi
07-27-13, 06:53 PM
One hour and 45 minutes left for those who have not voted to do so.

Presently we have:

2 votes against Ms. Mango;
3 votes against Lunacie;
2 absentions;
4 who have not yet voted.

"Abstainers" may still change their minds and vote.
Those who have voted may NOT change their vote.

Lunacie
07-27-13, 07:12 PM
Oh noes It looks like one of the sheep is going to get sheared!

Round 1 is over.

Ms. Mango, your teammates have chosen to vote you out as The Wolf.

You have been ejected from the game.

I will now reveal whether or not Ms. Mango was, in fact, the Wolf....

amberwillow
07-27-13, 08:43 PM

*holds my breath*

Abi
07-27-13, 08:43 PM
In a very unlikely turn of events...

You guys voted out The Wolf in just one round.

Ms. Mango WAS the Wolf.

Lunacie, for correctly identifying the Wolf, *AND* conving your fellow players to vote them out, you win the game :yes: :yes: :yes:

Abi

Since this game was really short, I'm going to start another one soon, with a new Wolf.

I'm assuming everyone who played this game wants to play again. If ynot, let me know soon.

TinaTheAwesome will also be joining us for Cry Wolf 2.

I will not be admitting any more players for Cry Wolf 2. You may let me know if you wish to play Cry Wolf 3 by PM, and I'll secure your spot.

Dayum, I'm good !!!

Actually, I was feeling bad about calling wolf on Ms. Mango, she totally had me convinced that she was just another sheep. Good job, Ms. Mango but ...

BuhBye Wolfie!


And yes, I wanna play again!
