I am starting a game with some friends, can you play with less than 7 people? If so, is anything different compared to a full game? Thanks :-)

the weak, or for people on sites where it's either easy or quick to get people to commit to things for real =)

No one needs to know anything until the game starts anyways, but if a more senior member of the community can let me know why the game thread and role PMs are sent out before actual game start, I'd be much obliged. For this time, they'll go out together and at the start.

I hate my phone sometimes.
@Valis, am I meant to ignore the 18-paragraph description of the various powers, sub-powers, and immunities that my role has? I quite liked the addition of the "fire tail roundhouse to throat" mechanism, even if I think it makes my "nuclear winter bunker" defense more obvious after the big reveal. Are you going to just send me that PM a second time, or does this mean my role might change? Also, I've never played mafia before, is any of this supposed to be secret?

The GM runs the day-to-day operations of a sports team. If they do it poorly they will get lynched

Át the end of the day, you kill the guy the most other players voted for. Your goal is for people not to hate you at the end of the game. A lot of GMs do this by doing regular votecounts and flavor posts.

Pacific Northwest FTF
I've only ever played FTF with people who don't really care about the game and want to be done after a year, and I always feel a twinge of jealousy when I sew those people having fun playing in real life on that crappy coast across the country. This is just a post to see who might be interested in getting something set up on this side of the country. I'm in the Seattle area.

Conundrum
So the people who make the schedules at my school are kinda dumb. I signed up for both AP Micro/Macroeconomics and AP European History. Only one class of each is being offered. And they happen to be the same hour. So I need to drop one and pick up some other course. I really don't know, so what (preferably AP) course would you suggest for me to take instead of AP Micro/Macroeconomics (because there's no chance I'll drop Euro)?

Without mentioning names or game ID's, can I please clarify something.

Making cheating accusations via in-game global press is not allowed, right? The correct procedure being to email the mods who will investigate?

Getting Germany every single game
Hi everybody, I'd like to ask if anyone has experience with an account getting a certain country every single game. One of my friends who I've played in several games against has drawn Germany out of the pot every single time. We're onto the fifth time out of 5 games he's gotten Germany.

I'd put it up to chance but we've reached 5 sigma and are on our way to 6. Thoughts?
