    Funnily enough, I tend to enjoy more micro and mini games than anything with more than 12 players. I usually get overwhelmed early game when there is more than 12 players posting rapidly and then I easily end up in the constant catch-up mode (and lurking) and then just losing all my motivation.

    I prefer more complex (though not necessary high-power) games. For example, some of the set-ups I have fond memories are games like Bravely Default, Battle of the Amyrlin Seat & Vagrant Story.

    Not to toot my own horn here, but I'd snap join one of my own games without question.


    You should join one of the BurTogs games, since they are designed by your very own protégés!

    Anyways, huge thanks to everyone playing in this game! Also, huge thanks for Proph and Axelrod for reviewing this game.
    While I thought this game was somewhat town-sided, I was positively surprised that mafia pulled off this win! Huge props to vezok for carrying her team over the finish line! I was also experimenting with deadlines this game (too), with determining that day should last 24h/living person. While that initially seemed to work quite fine, it caused this game to have 3 day D5, but at that point it didn't want to tamper with it anymore, so I decided to just roll with it and see if my players ask for an extension. Other than that, I felt that this game had a good pace, thread never died yet no one of the days (minus maybe D5) felt overly rushed.

    Still, I really appreciate all feedback from everyone involved with this game. What did you think about deadlines? Flavour/Vote Counts? What was your favourite song? Anything else?

    And to Cantrip: I really hate "follow/protect the cop" situations, so I very rarely put doctor and cop in a same game Wink

    Game Over - Europe will crumble

    You soon realise why the guards were running: Iceland was on stage. You hadn't paid any attention on the stage as you were supposed to be the one performing after them, but now that you look at the stage, you can see that things are amiss. Suddenly an ear-piercing scream fills the air and you can see that everyone's favourite Norwegian violinist is chained inside one of Icelands cages.

    Killjoy has been lynched! They were:

    Welcome to the game! Your role is the following:

    Alignment: Town
    Role: Vanilla
    Song: Fairytale
    Performed by: Alexander Rybak
    Country: Norway

    "I'm in love with a fairytale
    Even though it hurts
    Cause I don't care if
    I lose my mind
    I'm already cursed"


    They say that you should bring a violin with you if you want to win Eurovision Song Contest. The reason for this is you. You showed the Europe what can one man with boyish charms do when given a violin and a catchy song. And since winning the whole competition back in 2009 wasn't enough, you also secured the point record back then, that will be cemented forever as the highest record with the old scoring system.

    But that wasn't the end of the story, since you've participated in Eurovision for the second time (not to mention the cameos you've made) in 2018. While you didn't that time, you still made it all the way to finals and most importantly, had lots of fun and saw that the audience enjoyed! That was plenty enough for you!

    Now, you are faced with other kind of dilemma, since apparently some of you are trying to ruin this competition for the personal enjoyment. You don't want that, but sadly your violin skills aren't very useful in this situation. You can just try your best and hope that you will catch the perpetrators...

    You have no abilities.

    You win when all the hostile performances have been dropped out of the competition!

    The guards and the Austrian lady with a beard run towards the stage and try to stop the Icelandic group, but no avail. As soon as their enter the stage, the back-up dancers grab them and soon the audience joins in and help the group to stuff guards and the lone lady into another cage, next to Alexander Rybak. You just stand still and watching all of this happen in front of your eyes, still unable to believe that any of this is real.

    Alignment: Town
    Role: 1-shot Loud Bulletproof
    Song: Rise Like A Phoenix
    Performed by: Conchita Wurst
    Country: Austria

    "Rise like a phoenix
    Out of the ashes seeking rather than vengeance
    Retribution, you were warned"


    They say that in Eurovision, only the imagination is limit on what you can see on the stage. And for that reason (and maybe because of that reason), you decided to make your big debut on Eurovision.

    With your chic style, classic power ballad and beard like no other, you captured the attention of whole Europe with a song that could've easily been the opening song for James Bond movie. And once you won the 2014 contest by a landslide, no one was laughing at you anymore.

    Now, it's time for you to spread the message of love and forgiveness and hopefully resolve this conflict peacefully, without needing to result to physical or mental violence. That would the best for certain.

    Just in case that things won't go as peacefully as you'd wish them to go, you know that you have a trick up in your sleeve. Just like your song, you and your message can't be silenced so easily. They can try to tarnish your reputation, belittle your achievements or even physically assault you, but that won't keep you down. When the situation is the direst, you know you shall rise up again to the glory and lead everyone to a peaceful resolution of this whole mess you are in.

    Revive (1-shot, passive): The first time you would be killed during the night, you will immediately revive in such a flashy manner everyone notices it.

    You win when all the hostile performances have been dropped out of the competition!

    Then, the whole group and audience turns their attention towards you. You are the last person remaining here that hasn't been either thrown out, stuffed in a cage or joined the Icelandic group and his fans. Every one is looking at you and you ponder your options for a moment.

    Country: Iceland

    "Hate will prevail
    Love will die
    Hate will prevail
    Happiness comes to an end"


    "Iceland makes so nice and calm music every year"

    You have grown tired of hearing that and grown even more tired of your bad track record. Despite being part of this show since 1986, you are yet to win a single time. This time, you decided to give zero damns and sent Hatari to tell the rest of the Europe how you actually feel about this freak show. "Europe will crumble" you sing and keep wishing that for it to happen in real life too.

    To your surprise, this worked and you managed to place in top 10. You are still uncertain how you did this, but you are not letting it bother you. Don't fix it if it works. If your luck doesn't change, you can make it through this competition as well and let the Europe have a taste of your wrath and contempt.

    Anti-Capitalist BDSM Act: Target a player at night, to restraining them for the night. All their abilities will fail, but they will also be protected from all killing actions against them.

    You win when you have taken the control over this show!

    "HATRIÐ MUN SIGRA" you shout and grab the red point next to you and paint your face with it. If you can't defeat someone, better join them, you remember being told. And with a group that can make the whole audience join them, you most certainly can't be on the losing side now...

    Eurovision Mafia has ended in Mafia Win! Thank you for everyone participating in this game!

    Day 5 - No Love

    With the Switzerland's representative taken away by the guards, you started pondering what exactly makes someone "European" and "non-European". Your train of thought takes you to all kinds of places, until you come to a realization that despite this being a song contest between European countries with dozens and dozens of different official languages, English is still the most represented language with almost all participants singing at least partially in English.

    Even thinking about people participating this time, English is still quite strong here, despite this time there being much more non-English songs than previously. Remembering that there was still that Portuguese guy who didn't sing in English at all, you decide to head to their place to ask them a few questions and their thoughts about that, only to find out that their room is locked and there's black-and-yellow tape on that door.

    It looks like that the perpetrators have gotten yet another one of you.

    Vaimes has been found dead! They were:

    Alignment: Town
    Role: Vanilla
    Song: Amar pelos dois
    Performed by: Salvador Sobral
    Country: Portugal

    "If your heart doesn't want to give in,
    If it doesn't want to feel passion, if it doesn't want to suffer,
    Without having to plan what awaits us afterwards,
    My heart can love for us both"


    Sometimes you don't need flashy performance, cool choreography or a huge group of back-up dancers. Sometimes all it takes is a charismatic artist and a song that will touch people's hearts. Despite not even being sing in English, your song managed to sneak its way to people's hearts all over the Europe and for that reason, you are the current holder of point record in Eurovision.

    Even the story behind this song is moving. Your sister wrote this song, but after some thinking, she came to realisation that it doesn't fit her at all, and gave it to you, since it was more up in your alley. And as the results show, she was right.

    Now, you just need to use your charisma to lead your fellow performers and identify the hostile ones among your group and ask security to kindly take them out of the back exit, so the rest of you can have a pleasant, friendly competition.

    You have no abilities.

    You win when all the hostile performances have been dropped out of the competition!

    After seeing the scene and realising that there really isn't anyone left except you and the last few other people, you realise that this is it now. The next few moments are going to decide your whole life. You know you need to give it everything you got!

    It's now Day 6. With 3 alive, it’s 2 to lynch. Deadline is on November 7th.

    Night 4 - Left without her

    After a moment, you realise what was wrong with the next performer! She wasn't even an European, but a Canadian!

    "Let go of me, I'm representing Switzerland" she shouted to guards, but those words had no effect of the guards.

    Apparently someone had ratted her out to the organisers and let them know that despite everything, she was Canadian and therefore had no reason to be here, representing an European country in this competition.

    You just watched by, as they dragged the Canadian diva off somewhere else as she screamed and kicked while trying to resist the guards...

    Role: Vanilla
    Song: Ne partez pas sans moi
    Performed by: Céline Dion
    Country: Switzerland

    "Let me live
    The most beautiful adventure
    The most beautiful journey"


    It's year 1988 in Dublin. Speculation about this years winner just keep heating up, since several big names are appearing on the stage this year. Lara Fabian from Luxenburg, Tommy Kärberg from Sweden are just few example. Still, one of the names from the list stands out the most: Scott Fitzgerald from United Kingdom! Despite being everyone's front runner for the winner, that pesky Switzerland has managed to acquire points almost as much as UK! The situation reached the climax, as only one jury was yet to give out points and UK had managed to keep the first place with only 5 point lead from Switzerland. And then this happened:

    "Switzerland - 6 points. Netherlands - 7 points. Germany - 8 points. Norway - 10 points. And finally... France!"

    Somehow, out of nowhere, this unknown artist (called Céline Dion) representing Switzerland managed to snatch the gold metal from hands of UK. And that was just the beginning. This was just a start of a career, that would continue for several decades, leading to rise of one of the best selling female artists in a world!

    Now, it's time for you to show others how you still haven't lost your edge, despite all these years! Those horrible performances attempting to ruin this show will pay!

    You have no abilities.

    You win when all the hostile performances have been dropped out of the competition!

    Now, with just the few of you remaining, the situation was nearing its finale. You know all of this will end soon, one way or another...

    Day 4 - Forgetting the Past

    Soon after you had removed Dracula from the premises, an elderly lady started complaining about how she's no longer feeling her legs and started shaking uncontrollably. You helped her sit down, gave her something non-alcoholic to drink, but her condition didn't seem to improve at all despite your efforts. After thinking about it for a moment, you let the guards know who called the paramedic team and carried the old lady away.

    You heard the guards muttering something about the lady "being too old to be able handle all this stress and drama in the backstage" before the beeping of your social media feed interrupted you.

    Look at all these youngsters and their attempts at winning the Eurovision. You've been at this business even before the others were even born! Back in your day, you'd have to rely purely on your skills and song and nothing else. No dancing, no pyrotechnics, nothing. And as 1956 proved, you know how to sing.

    Now, as the first and original winner of Eurovision, you have decided to share your wisdom and experience with those youngsters, in hopes that one day they will be able to stand by you as an equal. And while you are at it, get rid of those horrendous performances attempting to ruin this show. Back in your day, they wouldn't have been let inside the building, not to mention participating in the competition. Oh, how times have changed.

    Still, with grace and elegance, it should a piece of cake for you. Quickly get rid of that horrible cacophony of sounds, and they your lovely voice once again can charm the people all over the world!

    You have no abilities.

    You win when all the hostile performances have been dropped out of the competition!

    With yet another participant gone, the backstage is starting to feel empty. Luckily, you know it won't take long until all of this is over.
