Pulsaris has made it pretty clear that this is a new take on an existing forum game idea. For that reason, I don’t think blatant assumptions should be made or draw strict parallels to previous games. It really boils down to this: Did Pulsaris specifically pick the two moles or were they RNG’d? I think we should try to figure that out on it’s own merits, using this thread – not past experience.

Normally as your host I shouldn’t say this, but now I feel I need to, in order to lead the game to the right direction.

This game is heavily based on The Mole, hosted by faceran, and The Mole 2, hosted by Bluji. Notice that I myself joined neither of the games, and that means I will be as newbie as you are. Hence, I need those two games as reference when I make my own.

If you don’t understand how the game works, go look at the two games. (The links can be found at OP.) This is what I do. Whining “I have never played this” or “I don’t know how this game works” is plainly fruitless and stupid.

When I say it is a new take, I mean the following: there are two moles; two people may win instead of one; tasks are toned down because people are now more stupid than in 2012; and etc.


By the way, a certain person asked me to announce this:

We are The Moles, we will intentionally mess up every round, so if you don’t you lose ;)

Fuckup Tally: 1

A PM has sent to RIM for this issue.

Also, from now on, you are not allowed to edit or delete things you have already written. However, you are allowed to attach an addendum to your submitted post. In a nutshell, you cannot alter things you have submitted, but you can add on with in a separate paragraph. This rule aims to reduce the clutter caused by EBWOPs.

Host Message on the Commencement of the Game


So, this is the first TV-competition type game I host in FGF. Props to myself.

The moles and the intruder have received their PMs. If you do not receive any PM from me, that means you are a normal contestant.

Feel free to PM me for questions.

Round 1, Task 1: ELIMINATE THE INCOMPETENT!!!

As you have just heard, there is an intruder among you, and your task is to find the intruder and eliminate him. Once you think you have discovered who the intruder is, you must post “[player] is the intruder” in bold for your submission to be considered official. Remember you cannot change your submission. If you are correct, 150 mFW will be placed into the pot. If you’re wrong, well, let’s just say that the mole is off to a great start. Either way (whether you’re right or wrong), the intruder will be identified and removed from the game.

This is NOT an individual task. Before you submit your answer, make sure it reflects the opinion of the majority.

Deadline: 27 February 1800 UTC+8

I’ll only roll out the game details after the 14th sign, although some may have already guessed it.

It’s only a mafia-like game, not mafia.

Rules

1. This game highly depends on the honesty and honor of the players. You have a chance to break the rules at any point — hopefully you don’t.
2. Communication between players is not allowed during execution quizzes, nor at any other time where I specify that communication is not allowed.
3. Once an execution quiz has been posted, that round is over, and you may not look back at any posts made during that round. At any point.
4. You may take notes during the game (and I recommend it), but the notes must be hand-written or manually typed; you may not copypaste, nor taking screenshots.
5. Notes can be used to study for the execution quizzes and the final quiz, and unlike other The Mole games, you may look at your notes while answering the quiz!
6. If you have proof that another player is breaking the rules in any way, PM me. You will remain anonymous for the other players.
7. Private messaging other players is allowed, unless expressly forbidden in a task. However, you must not quote any PM verbatim or present screenshot of it.
8. Changing your submission is forever PROHIBITED unless otherwise stated.
9. All official submissions excluding any private submissions are to be posted in bold.
10. You may not edit nor delete things you have posted or PM’d. However, you can add on posts that you have posts, to reduce clutter caused by the EBWOP method.
11. You may not use alts. I thought this was common sense.

Pulsaris Production Presents…

The Moles!


Welcome to The Moles, a spinoff of the TV series The Mole, and the forum games The Mole and The Mole 2. In this game, 14 people of you will be competing for a maximum pot of 4000 mFW, earned through completing sets of tasks. However, as you may have noticed the game is called The Moles with a plural, there are two moles among your ranks, in order to sabotage your efforts to earn mFWs while staying low profile.

This game is different from its predecessors in FGF, as this game directly hands out mFWs (short for milli-FGF-Wins) instead of imaginary money. The amount of mFWs you earn will directly affect how many people can win. For each 1000 mFW, one person can win, up to a theoretical maximum of 4000 mFW, or four people winning. This game will also be more casual, to accommodate the more casual nature of the majority of our contestants.

As a tip, the main point of the game is to find out who the moles are, and to distract other people from doing so.


How to Play

In this game, there will be a number of tasks (I estimate 30) for you to do, where you can earn mFWs. Every set of three tasks will end in an execution quiz, where contestants are tested about their knowledge of the mole in the three tasks before. The worst performer (for ties, the person who submitted their response the last) will be eliminated. The game ends when the number of contestants, not counting moles, exceeds the number of wins available. The endgame quiz will be extra hard, encompassing the whole game, and after completing that, the remaining contestants will win, unless the moles do.

For the moles to win, they must not attract too much suspicion. Besides, they must stop the contestants from getting mFWs into the pot. As a rule of thumb, the moles will win if the earned pot is below 1000 mFW, and the moles will lose if the earned pot is above 2000 mFW.

15 pages of discussion cannot be considered “inactive” in FGF standards. Bluji nailed it; it was walfordking who blew my game up.

Seriously, though, I suddenly feel the urge to restart the game.
