I love these games but we'll burn out if we have too many.
Agreed. I wasn't sure enough time had passed since MMAYAV (August) to be running this. I reckon an AYAW type game is probably right every 8-10 months with a couple of other unrelated games in between.
I personally think there's room for any amount of games if people want to play them. I think in terms of a huge game it's better to have them infrequently, but frequent smaller Mafia games have their place since there's always people willing to play things. Especially when you have people complaining that there's never anything to do on the forum.
I'd argue it's beneficial to have more forum games if the interest is there. The only person who it really effects timewise overall is the organiser, but if you have frequent games hosted by different people you remove that problem. It also depends on how the game is run too. If every game had the same rules then I'd say it wouldn't make sense to keep doing them, but with differing rules it's cool to keep playing since every game should be different and play out differently depending on what roles there are and who gets them.
