Welcome to the Bookish Games, a variation of the game Mafia (aka Werewolf) that was previously hosted at A Bookish Heart and is now hosted at Oh, the Books! For each game, a popular YA book is chosen to be the theme and players are assigned different character roles and powers. Their end goal is to ensure that their team is the last one standing, even if they don’t know who their other teammates are!
If you are not signed up in the game, please refrain from commenting on these posts (otherwise they will be deleted). Instead, you can contact me via the Oh the Books! contact form or Twitter to gain access to a page where you can discuss the game with other players once they are eliminated.
Oooh, like the graphic? You can thank Kelley for that beauty! Each week when a player is eliminated their identity will be revealed in the graphic above showing their alliance, identity, and role.
Voting Updates will still occur in the comment section below, but as an added Kelley bonus this chart will also be updated to give you a quick look at who has votes at any given time.
Game Master’s Notes
Final tips and reminders before we start:
- Because it is Day One, you really have nothing to base your votes or suspicions off of yet. Have fun and vote however you want. You will still learn valuable things by observing who defends who and how people respond to votes.
- Remember when casting your vote to bold and capitalize it so I can easily keep track. (For example: VOTE: ASTI.) You can do this by putting < b > tags < / b > around your vote (just remove the spaces). Also, it would be smart to double check my vote tallies when they pop up to ensure I spotted your vote as mistakes do happen.
- You can also choose not to vote. Votes can be cancelled by commenting CANCEL VOTE. But, as a warning to those on the side of the good guys, Day votes are your own real chance of eliminating any evil forces in the game. Do you really want to let your own chance at eliminating the baddies just disappear?
- Please do not click the “Reply” button next to someone’s comment if you want to respond to what they’ve said. Instead, just start a new comment at the bottom and state within your comment who you are replying to (players usually do this by saying @Name: Blah blah blah). With so many players, it’s easiest if comments appear in chronological order.
- Lastly, please make sure you are familiar with the Bookish Games rules. It is assumed by now that you have read and agreed to the rules. Please follow them so we can have a good game!
It is now Day One! Everyone has until Wednesday 1pm EDT to discuss suspicions and cast their votes. Once the deadline has been reached, whoever has the most votes will be eliminated!
