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.

GAME MASTER’S NOTES
Well, that didn’t quite go to plan, did it? Everyone seemed to be quite confused by vvb and her gameplay, and yet she was just another innocent Gunter. And then the Night comes and goes, only for us to find that another Gunter, Anne, has been eliminated from the game. Two days down, Four good guys gone. What to do next?
There is no longer any excuse to say “I don’t know who to vote for”. You can look at comments (or lack thereof) and votes (or lack thereof) from the past two days to build your ideas of who is on which team. Have any players said anything that make you think they know more than they should? Does any of the deaths give you hints at who might possibly be behind these deaths? Has there been any strong influencers who are leading everyone astray? On, on the other end, is there someone who seems to be purposely hiding under the radar? There are SO many possibilities. All you need to do is open your eyes.
And let me take this time to remind those Team Gunters who are still alive, voting is your only chance to eliminate a Mafia member. If you do not talk about your suspicions and get the votes going, then get ready to dig your grave. It’s hard to share suspicions and get yourself in the spotlight, I know, but it’s now or never. You never know when you might be next.
One last thing before this Day begins, regarding the scoreboard. The points are not there to influence the game in any way. There is a method as to how they are rewarded, as I’m sure you can easily find out, but they’re more or less there just because we thought it was a shame to not do something with the points! You can use it if it helps you in any way, but generally speaking, it wasn’t designed as some kind of hint or clue in the game.
Now, enough talking on my end. Good luck players! Let’s home Day Three brings you better luck.
It is now Day Three! 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!
