    Game Review Request Thread

    Request Thread

    This thread is for requesting game/setup reviews only.

    Please do not post in this thread for any other reason.

    To request a review for your game setup simply post in this thread.

    Please post the name of your game, player count, and what type of game it is (see below), and when it starts.

    Name:
    Player Count:
    Game Type:
    Start Date:


    What Games Need Review?

    Any game with a hidden role set (i.e. a "Closed" setup) needs to be reviewed by a member of the Setup Review team.
    "Bastard" games need to be reviewed also, but you we will only be categorizing the severity of mod misinformation.

    Game Hosts Responsibility
    It is the game host's responsibility to request a review of their setup a couple of weeks before their game's start date. Games cannot run until they are approved, so please make sure to leave enough time!

    Review Team Responsibilities:
    It is the responsibility of the Setup Review team to answer requests and approve, tweak, or reject a setup before the game starts (provided sufficient review time was provided).

    A list of the current Setup Reviewers is available in the "Current Staff" thread.

    Feel free to ping listed setup reviewers in this thread, though most of us will have "Subscribed" to this thread anyway (maybe...).



    Game Types

    Please provide a rough guess as to what type of game you are running when you request a review.

    Mish Mash: A very large game. Lots of PRs. ITAs/Events. High amounts of death, game usually ends within a week.
    Role Madness: A non-mash game which features a large number of power roles and very few vanillas.
    Non-Standard: A Standard game but with some twists or some relatively complex/custom roles or mechanics.
    Standard/Vanilla+: A game with only a few power roles and all roles are supported by modbot.



    Post-Review Tags

    The following tags may be applied to games after they have been reviewed. These are used to ensure player expectations are set accordingly.

    Bastard: A game where the host intentionally lies to the players (in PMs, Role Reveals, etc.) for their own amusement or the amusement of spectators.
    Multiball: A game with multiple non-town teams with mutually-exclusive win conditions. Solo third party roles such as Serial Killer do not count as Multiball.
    Experimental: A game with one or more unique/complex mechanics players may not be used to. It may be difficult to review how a new mechanic will affect balance before it has been seen in action. Players should adjust their pre-game expectations accordingly.

    I'll help w/ this. Is there a review topic (didn't look like there was one yet but might have missed it)? Do you want to chat on discord? I'm pretty flexible on details so lmk.

    Hi Leetic, if you go to the Game Review section you can create a new thread and post your setup in there.

    Only you and reviewers will be able to see it

    Hey @silmarils,

    Did anyone ever look at this for you?

  40. ISO #40
    Name: 'Introducing: The Inkster' Mafia
    Player Count: 13
    Game Type: Open
    Start Date: May-ish


    Want to develop a new open setup around a mafia role i am calling the "inkster" [for now]. it's a cop-based setup. i have used the 'inkster' before but want to develop it as a concept into something other hosts would use too. Would appreciate another opinion on this setup before running it, just to make sure i'm not losing it.

    if it's open just make a thread in Mafia Lounge and let the world at large give thoughts/concerns/comments

    Plenty of other setup discussion in there too

    Requesting review regarding balancing of twist mechanics and to make the game actually playable
    Hey @silmarils,

    Did anyone ever look at this for you?
    No but I’ve basically canned it since there are too many gamebreaking elements, might revisit it when I have more hosting experience under my belt

    Hi. I did not realize I was supposed to post here to let you know about the thread I created. My mistake. Logic said there was technical difficulties with the thread. Logic will hopefully share the new link with you after taking a look at the revamped roleset.

    Hi Wu,

    can you make a thread in the Game Review subforum with the setup in there?

    Thanks
