1) Participate In Other Games Before Making your Own
— There is no substitute for experience, and seeing a few of our veterans’ games can give you inspiration for your new games. Also, even though it isn’t really absolutely required, it seems to help if you are at least semi-known around the Forum, since people will see your quality work as a player.
2) Use Proper Grammar
— This is even more important for making a forum game, although it isn’t an absolute requirement outside of an RP. Especially when you make a title and description for your game, though, many people won’t really want to read an opening post etc. if you don’t capitalize or use periods when needed. However, it just matters that your posts be mostly legible; you don’t need to capitalize every I or place every comma.
3) Get a Good Idea of the Game
— This is very important for long-term games. A poorly made game will bomb early on. So please, before you click “Post Topic”, look over your game, and think “Would other people be able to play and enjoy this game?” if not, then take a little while to correct some wrinkles in your game.
1) Play the Game!
— As someone who’s been here since Forum Games were merely a part of OT, I can say with confidence that this is by far the most annoying issue. Many people sign-up for a game, and then never play. While in games such as RPs, this may not be as
much of an issue, it can ruin some Mafias. So if you’re going to sign-up, make sure you can play!
2) Use Proper Grammar
— While this isn’t required
, it’s definitely an important courtesy. I’m not saying to make sure every post is perfect – far from that – but make the posts legible. If your post has to be read more than once because it cannot be understood, there’s a problem. So please, at least take the time to be legible.
3) Follow the Game Rules
– While this mostly applies to RPs, some other games have rules specific for the game. Follow them, or risk being kicked from the game by the OP.
4) Don’t Post to Increase Post Count
– This also applies to mostly RPs. If it’s a serious RP, chances are a one-to-two sentence post ain’t gonna cut it. If the OP took the time to think up the game and was kind enough to put it up here for you to experience, return the favor. Take the time to make a decent post with some detail. Once again, a courtesy.

What is FGF?
stands for Forum Game forums. Forum Games Forums is one of the newer forums and was once part of the Off-Topic Forums. It has since become it’s own unit and developed it’s own community. It’s now been over a year since they separated from Off-Topic, and FGF
What are Forum Games?
Forum games are text-based games you play over the forums. While pictures and graphics can be involved, it’s fundamentally based off posts made by users.
What are the different types of Forum Games?
Summary that might not be very up-to-date
Continuous: In a continuous game, the game will most likely never end (unless ended by the owner). They can vary from a multitude of things such as King of the Hill or Picture Wars.
Competition: In a competitive game, there are either teams or everyone stands for themselves. You compete to have the highest score either by playing games or answering trivia.
Role-Playing (RP): In a RP game, you act as a character in the game and follow the storyline provided by the owner.
Useful link 1
Useful link 2
Mafia: In a mafia game, there are two teams. The first group is usually the “mafia”, while the other group is often called the “townspeople.” The Mafia is usually smaller and knows who everyone is. The townspeople don’t know who anyone is, and must kill who they think is in the mafia is by night.
Werewolf: “Werewolf” forum games are a variant of Mafia games. Instead of their being a team of mafia, there is one werewolf. Like in other mafia games, the “townspeople” try to figure out who the werewolf is, while the werewolf kills off townspeople one by one.
Vote: In a voting game, the storyline progresses as you vote for what the main character/characters should do next. Also known as a CYOA (Choose Your Own Adventure, generally option based) or CYOP (Choose Your Own Path, generally keyword/action based).
Miscellaneous: In a miscellaneous game, the game is either unclassified by me yet, or has no certain agenda that matches with the above game types.
What does ____ mean?
God Mod: To control another person’s roleplaying in an Internet forum or chat room. To abuse “God-mode” cheats.
Role: A role is a character you play in a game, typically a Role Playing game or (more commonly) a Mafia game. In a mafia game, roles are generally PM’d to the players.
Sign-Ups: Forum Games that are open to be joined will have the (Sign-Ups) label and will be designated with a (!) in the Directory (if signups are open) or (x) (f signups are closed).
Replacements: If someone is inactive, the owner of the game may call for a replacement player.
Reserve: If a user signs up for a game, but all the slots are full, they will hold a reserve spot, which means if a user becomes inactive, the reserve player will then take their place.
Game Related: If a thread title has “Game Related” in it, it means the thread is not a forum game, but it has to do something with forum games.
Town: The large side that does not know each other in a Mafia game.
Host: The person who runs the game.
Day: The phase in a Mafia in which people vote, and occasionally, perform actions.
Night: The phase in a Mafia in which people (usually) use actions.
Lynch: Elimination of players via gaining the most votes during the day.
Majority lynch: The elimination mechanic where the day ends when the majority of the remaining players vote (for the same person).
FoS: ‘Finger of Suspicion’. Used to indicate that you find someone suspicious but are not going to vote them, for whatever reason (often because you are voting for someone even more suspicious).
HoS: ‘Hand of Suspicion’. Means you’re saying ’He’s either the bad guy, or I am!’
NK: ‘Nightkill’. The elimination of a player via an ability during the Night phase, or the actual ability itself that performs the aforementioned effect.
DK: ‘Daykill’. The elimination of a player via an ability during the Day phase, or the actual ability itself that performs the aforementioned effect.
RNG: ‘Random Number Generator’, or ‘Random Number God’. In a Mafia-specific context, it means to randomly pick someone to vote.
Protect: Protecting someone from a Lynch/Night Kill. (Depends on the role, if there is one.)
Reveal: Revealing someones role to yourself or the team. (Depends on the role, if there is one.)
Scum: Mafia-sided player.
VI: ‘Village Idiot’. A Town-sided player that acts in a manner that hurts their team.
SI: ‘Scum Idiot’. A Mafia-sided player that acts in a manner that hurts their team.
Bandwagon: A large amount of votes on someone because someone else voted them, for whatever reasons or lack thereof.
Hammer: A very quick bandwagon, usually orchestrated by the Mafia. Also, in a mafia where majority lynch (see above) is used, the final casted vote before majority is reached.
For a more comprehensive list of mafia abbreviations, visit this link.
Qualifier: A game that is played to see who gets into the competition. Most commonly at the beginning.
Screenshot: A screenshot of the game, with the green plug visible and the high-scores tab open.
DQ’d: Disqualified. Different games may use different words to signify disqualification.
Redemption/Requalification round: A round in which eliminated players get the chance to join the competition again. A competition may or may not have such a round.

Winners of a game that did not win the proper way (such as the game maker choosing them to be the winners of a game that died because they were the most active) will not have their win included in this list. However, this rule may have exceptions, though those exceptions will be rare.

Tutorial for updating the games list:
<a href="[Game URL]">Game Name</a> By <a href="User Profile">Username</a> <b>(...Open, Closed, Classic...)</b><br />
This is what each entry should look like.
Try to place the highest rated games at top, then open games, and then arrange everything else by when it was created.
I skimmed through the thread since I’ve been gone, and I noticed a large amount of flaming, arguing, and general misuse of the thread. That apparently eventually culminated in the eventual closure of this thread for a period of time. Since we seem to be lacking in general procedure towards handling these kinds of issues, I have provided one. Edit freely.
1) Firmly Communicate to the Users – Misuse of MFGFT is disallowed. Privately encourage uninvolved users to ignore.
2) Flag Inappropriate Posts – Attempt to end the conversation before it goes too far.
3) Directly Communicate with Forum Moderators – Attempt to achieve punishments for responsible users, while leaving the thread intact and unlocked. Clearly state the differences between the rule-abiding editors and the rule-breaking users.
4) Feel like a sexy.
I don’t know if these kinds of issues are recurring, since I haven’t been here for a while, but this general procedure should prevent the thread from being locked. Disputes between users should not interfere with us.
MFGFT editors, here are some useful tools to make your life easier:
Cookie Swap: Helps to switch between your user account and the FG account easily.
Lue script By Vara: Helps to easily see which games have not been registered by the MFGFT yet (requires Greasemonkey; for chome users, it may or may not work with TamperMonkey.)

FogFun, Marh, WiiPlayer113 become Editors – TheAznSensation
Please feel free to edit what needs to be edited, what you can contribute, and update the directory as often as possible. Please include the most recent update time in the first post. When updating the directory, only add games that have reached two pages and always link to the sign-ups unless they are locked. Once a game is closed, remove it from the directory. If a game is inactive for five days without explanation, feel free to remove it. By TheAznSensation
As of 12/11/10, every time you have a large update add a check mark to your name.
Note that editors are listed here in the order of receiving editorship, and not in descending order of authority/sexiness/other generic yardstick.
Game Ideas and Upcoming Games
Plague Mafia: One random person dies every day, everything else goes on as normal.
Possession: A ghost has possessed a player, but will move to a random player after three days. In that three days, the possessed player is temporarily a werewolf. The aim is to lynch a currently possessed player. The trick is to gather enough evidence to lynch a single person before their three days are up and you have to restart the collection of evidence.

Council is open to any and all FGFers. Feel free to post matters that you think need discussing.
Topic: Should the first posts of the Master FGF thread be improved? Should some of the more trivial content be condensed down and more important areas (e.g game making, dealing with trolls, helpful information) have their own posts and sections?
Topic Status: Discussion started. Solution and outcome pending.
Topic Queue: This is for listing any topics that have not been resolved yet, or have decisions pending.
Previous Topics: This lists all previously discussed topics in the Council. Whether the topic was Resolved or Scrapped is mentioned, along with subsequent results.
1) Discuss Rule #7. Should Rule #7 be changed to allow more games to be run by a single user? Should we pass this decision on to a Forum Moderator and have it be law? : Resolved. The Revised Rule #7, located in Refined guidelines – by aC, is the result.
2) Define ‘Classic’. Should the stat of ‘Classic’ for a game be changed to include/exclude game genres? Should we change the current definition or remove the stat altogether? : Resolved. The stat has been kept for historical significance only.
3) Discuss Tagging Procedures. Should Tag Procedures 3 and 4 be included or excluded in future taggings? Should there be any changes in their workings? : Resolved. Tagging Procedure 3 has been excluded. Tagging Procedure 4 has been instated.
4) Discuss win procedure. Who should be able to award wins in games? What criteria should there be to meet a win? : Resolved(?). Guidelines for awarding wins in the works.
5) Discuss Continuous Games and Revised Rule #7. Should Continuous games, particularly those which are not GM dependent, count towards the limit of games that a person may host? Should someone running a continuous game be allowed to host another game without seeking approval per Revised Rule #7? : Resolved. Continuous games do count. Approvals are needed as per Revised Rule #7.
6) Propose change to Tagging Procedure 4. Should character limit be increased from 70? What should be the new character limit of Tagging Procedure 4? : Resolved. Tagging Procedure 4 has been made liberal. “A couple of sentences” is the new limit for the description, and the acceptable length is up to editor discretion.
Here are the requirements:
- HTML Capability, if you don’t know how to, go here;
- FGF Regular;
- approved by current editors;
- must have good grammar;
- must have our personal trust;
- willing to volunteer to contribute to updating/editing/fixing constantly.
- Must be sexy, like us. ;)
On-leave editors (inactive for 3+ months) are marked with an (x).
Blocked from making games until:
I approve SFX as a FGF regular. I would like to put forth my name into consideration at this time for the same title, Forum Game Forums Regular.

Symbiotically, I believe that SilentSam is definitely a regular here. :)

You’re an editor. You’ll receive the password to this account once I’m done making the layout.
I agree that SilentSam is a regular. I’ve know him for a loooooong time.
He gets my second vote.
Also, congratz on taking the initiative Azn!
EDIT: Also, as for the council thing… So, is that going to include council members too? Because the way OT does it, there’s a list of the members, and then they discuss things throughout the rest.
