ah ok so can we request how the cards will look or will you take care of that?

The image on the cards will be either:
1) As the description of the character states in any sign up sheet or host description.
2) Where no description is available, the player and host connected to the card will have input into the card.

Each card has it’s own unique stats like with the FGF Top Trumps:

Not sure what you mean by power level but some cards are more powerful than others.

Seems like a cool idea.

Glad to see interest in the idea. To go more in depth about what I already have planned and what I think would help make a game such as this.


So far I am working on the first game in FGFTTA (Forum Games Forum Top Trump Adventure). It is the “The Realm of the Dead” series. As my first FG and one of the first, I have chosen characters and creatures from them to make the 1st area.

The sort of cards I want in each area (FG) are:
Main Story Arc cards (Cards of Player Characters and Main Storyline Characters/Main Important roles)
Lore cards (Cards derived from the lore of the FGs)

Although this seems limited to RPs, it is not. All that is required is for everything to be put in an RP context. For example:

Competitions can receive cards as the main contenders for the competition win could have a card based off their competition appearance. Several Lore cards can be received from the games played in competitions.

CYOPs can receive cards easily as the protagonist and major encounters of the CYOP make the main cards and several lore cards can be constructed.

Mafias can receive cards based of the players in the roles. For example there could be a card like “Mayo RT” if I ever played a mayor role and made significant impact for town. Lore cards could be playerless or discarded roles or players who made less of an impact to the game.

Puzzle games can receive cards mostly based of lore, cards coming from the concept of the game more than anything.

RPs, cards can be made easily as Lore and Story Arcs are directly viewable.

Strategy games can receive cards the same way as puzzle games.


Here are examples of what I said above:

Genre: Competition
Game: Bluji’s Christmas Calendar
Main Cards: Christmas Bluji, Undead Santa, (Others)
Lore Cards: (Others)

So this game may not be the best example as I didn’t play it and don’t know what sort of challenges or Lore based cards I could create of the challenges.

Genre: CYOP
Game: The Lighthouse
Main Cards: The Lighthouse Keeper,
Lore Cards: (Others)

I would be able to make more examples but the game is still new. But as you imagine there would be tons of things in CYOPs that you can make cards of.

Genre: Mafia
Game: Acid City Trouble
Main Cards: Warden Kadleon, Eagle-eye back, Informer graveyard (Or more creative titles), DJ Wizard
Lore Cards: Gravedigger Spike, Eviscerator Spike, “Mayo” Turtle, RandomAngel

This was a very recent game I played, and cards can be based on fabricated claims in mafias just to spice up the set a bit.

Genre: Puzzle
Game: Rat Maze
Main Cards: Yellow Rat Lebossle, Red Rat Back
Lore Cards: Blue Rat Graveyard, Skull Trap

I have never played rat maze but these are the sorts of things that jump out at me.

Genre: Strategy
Game: Nations of the world 3
Main Cards: Prime Minister BC, President Ajx
Lore Cards: UN officials

These sorts of things.

Genre: RP
Game: The Fading Horizon
Main Cards: Jonathan Invicthan Targaryen, Ethyri Stark, Ellis Anderson
Lore Cards: KARMELASH


Nothing in the examples above are cards at this point in time but do give insight to what the idea is.
Moreover to get this idea on the go I would need help. As I can’t dig through FGF to find all the top tier games and then read all the content of those games and condense it down to cards I think best portray it. Ideally I would want help in a form such as;

“I have found this game, was really fun when I played it, I loved this game and would like to see it in FGFTTA, here are a list of potential cards for this game”

As by doing this the work I then have to do is balancing the card stats. It may seem lazy, but in all honestly reading 100s of pages of stuff you have no special interest in, you are bound to misinterpret, misunderstand or straight up miss a bunch of things and those inaccuracies will live on in the card set forever. Whereas if someone who had a big interest in the stuff would be able to more readily recall correct information and give the potential cards that make the most amount of sense and that other players familiar with the games will like.

Any feedback, hit me up.

Quite a while ago I had an idea involving the FGF Top Trumps. What about an FG where you go around to many previous FGs battle the natives (In FG Top Trumps style) and recruit the various Top Trumps to make an interesting and diverse team that will travel FG.

Thoughts?

Also 50% votes means you can roleclaim doesn’t work because >50% is hammer, so unless we have an even number of players in that round we cannot roleclaim.

In which case mafia can deliberately kill (or not kill) to put us in the position where days have odd numbers of players and can put us at a point where we can lynch but not roleclaim or wait but not lynch.

I posted that N4 asher visited gravey. That is why I said why didn’t he save andy and nice to see him saving gravey.

Ah, I must have missed that part or forgotten about it.

Unfortunately for town my protective role isn’t quick, it takes time to set up. The role details are unclear if I can set a heal and activate it on the same night (I doubt it) so it takes a minimum of 2 nights to protect 1 person. The only reason I activated the heals was because I thought today was the last day before game end so may as well. Luckily it did have direct results (Probably because others felt that this was also the last chance to make drastic night actions).

his entire defense has been an attempt at trying to subtly change the lynch target

Subtly enough for me to not notice. Thank you for the reminder.

Also coming to think of it the demon thing, what about Back900?

He is confirmed town right because he died, role revealed, revived so he must be town? Wrong. What if back900 was the optimal conversion because his old role still appears in the OP constantly concreting the idea in. However when you look at it back’s role is to watch people every night to see visitors. But I don’t think I’ve heard him use any powers of the sort. Seems strange. Not saying back is but it is possible.

Let’s see how are you being scummy:

A confirmed townie was strategizing and you had a pivotal role in his strategy. Instead of discussing with them you deliberately went against the plan. If you had of said before the night “I’m not going to invest this guy because I feel this other guy is more scummy” that would have been fine. But the fact is you only did so afterwards.

Moreover the chances of demons are incredibly unlikely at this stage yet you keep trying to convince us that DJrockstar is a demon and trying to get attention off lynching mafia and towards lynching confirmed town (Very low chance at third party).

Whereas Ganthro is giving a thought out defense and hasn’t tried changing lynch target and has even agreed to cooperate and use his invest powers on anyone of our choosing if we let him live for tonight.

Well after looking back on it he quit day 3 and the role states you have to wait after successful conversion. So in the two days he could activate his ability, let’s say he got a conversion. The next player then chooses the convert target so that means by now there would be 2 or more demons (Likely) but this appears to not be the case.

Also to be honest the only reason I am voting Ganthro is because Kad promises to jail graveyard or he would have my vote. Because Graveyard seems way more scummy at the moment in my opinion.

and then there’s ganthro and graveyard who are both claiming detective but there are only 2 citizen investigator

Well there are 2 citizen un-killing roles which means that both of them could be detectives. However they still could be an Informer.

I trust Ganthro’s claims.

I’m citizen investigator. I’m not sure if anyone got it, but this was a hint about who I investigated last night:
RandomTurtle, you’re not from here, are you?
Pair that with the abilities he claimed to have, and I probably know his role. I won’t say more in case he doesn’t want to be revealed, but you get the point. This is the value of an investigative that actually investigates. Let me stay around for one night longer and I can prove it by investigating anyone of your choosing.

If I could roleclaim it would make it so much easier but since I can’t feel free to share what role you think I am Ganthro, your most likely going to be right. If you are I will confirm it.

Time to update this:

Citizen Investigator – Eagle-eye (back900) and Forensic (10crystalmask01)
Citizen Protect – ??
Citizen Support – Wizard (djrockstar?) and Gravedigger (spikeabc)
Citizen Unkilling – Detective (graveyard890) and Timelord (Gonkeymonkey)
Citizen Killing – Warden (kadleon?)

Citizen Investigator – Eagle-eye (back900) and Forensic (10crystalmask01)
Citizen Protect – Asher11111 (Guard) and ?
Citizen Support – Wizard (djrockstar) and Andyb112 (Mayo)
Citizen Unkilling – Detective (graveyard890) and Timelord (Gonkeymonkey)
Citizen Killing – Warden (?
)

Remaining player pool:
RandomTurtle
Kadleon
Ganthro

There are a few scenarios that could play out here. Let’s assume I am a citizen protective role as some evidence may suggest.

In this case Kadleon’s quote implies he is not the warden. This leaves Ganthro to be the Warden. So that means Kadleon must be scum?
Not quite as any non-killing town role can counterclaim graveyard as shown above.

If Kadleon is scum then the original mafia would have been: Kadleon, Spike and Bluji, sounds like a powerful mafia team.
However Kadleon shows pro-town behaviour (Although even scum would want to show pro-town behaviour).
Graveyard doesn’t quite show as much pro-town behaviour. Claiming to have investigated asher11111 despite being told otherwise by town and coincidently asher11111 is the dead target so graveyard could be lying.

In short I believe that Ganthro is the Warden, Kadleon could be scum but it’s also could be graveyard.

Ganthro has a valid point.

I am not.

Wait, Asher died and Kadleon was attacked.
So if demons have night kill powers that would add up.

Right. There is 6 of us left.

Graveyard890
Kadleon
back900
Ganthro
DJrockstar
RandomTurtle

Grave, Back and DJ have claimed town roles.
I know I have a town role.
I also know I protected either Kadleon or Back last night.

Kadleon and Ganthro both seem to be pro-town.
I’m unsure of who to vote as of right now.

Are dead townies still awarded wins?
Like I know most Kong mafias work like that but Danisy seems to be running things by an adapted version of Bluji’s ruleset so it may be different.

I am going to throw this out there and suggest that spikeabc, Ganthro and FelineForumer are the mafia.

That sounds about right to me.
