This is probably the oddest AY? game I've played. Couldn't really get into it but in hindsight was still a great game with interesting mechanics that all worked well. The whole alphabet list put me off it quite a bit - interest I never fully regained - but as it didn't have a massive positive or negative impact on either side (overall), wasn't actually as game-breaking as I initially believed.
Congrats to BID0 too on effectively winning the Humans the game, excellent stuff. Can't really take any credit myself, seeing as my biggest contribution was killing our best chance of swinging the game in our favour. Really not sure why Errkal completely outed himself yesterday, and even more confused with the fellow Infected for failing to save him. Bizarre.
Also a massive thanks for Moggy for running it. As I've mentioned, the whole list thing was unfortunate but didn't actually ruin the game which was good. I'll apologise again for initially moaning too. I think I was expecting a AYA? game in which it stuck to the basic structure and we figured out people's roles based on good detective work rather than a tiny slip-up from the GM, hence my gripe with people getting excited over potentially winning after noticing a mistake in the initial set-up. As it turned out the game was played in a different way, but it didn't necessarily make the game itself any 'worse' - just different.
I liked how different it was and how it evolved as each day passed. It certainly made being a regular human more interesting. The format would work really well with an even bigger group of people and allowing infected to infect other people (maybe only let a regular infected infect one time). Maybe for the forums 10th anniversary? The AYAModerator game was huge, would be cool to see that player count based off this rule set.
And is that HSH quote real? possibly the funniest thing I've ever read, which is ironic.
