    From this point on I'm enacting Zone 1 USMB rules in the games I host.

    Your voice counts. Please discuss if you wish.

    Has it really gotten that bad in game 2? I am a day behind but it seems to me that people are being overly sensitive for absolutely no reason and that zone 1 rules is a WAAAAAY overkill in this scenario. Poking is almost required from the way I read the game – it’s part of the mental side of the strategy. Take that away and you end up with very little to work with.

    Sometimes a well-placed fuck you might be in order :D


    Your game though and we will, of course, play to the rules that you set.

    Provocation and antagonism are excellent tools in Mafia, and can be used with Zone 1 rules.

    It becomes a problem when it becomes personal. However, you can attack a player's arguments and cases as viciously and violently as you want. Attack, provoke, and antagonize players BY refuting their posts, dumping suspicion on them, applying pressure, etc. Attack positions and posts, not players. I can dunk someone into a pressure cooker without flinging one insult.

    If you call a player a "faggot," or whatever while playing the game, that's crap. But if you find a half-dozen or more loose threads sticking out in a player's posts, and you grasp and slowly start to unravel them, that REALLY gets a response, and can make the player nervous. My skin can be incredibly think, so I shrug it off (I toilet hostile clients for a living, et al). Start taking my posts and game-related intentions though... and I'll be forced to play the game by refuting, accusing, and reading. :D

    Can we call them faggots if they are the town arsonist?

    Wake, really. No one thinks they crossed a line. You need to be a firm host or forget it. Make rules, stick with them

    -I liked mani's suggestion about days being Mon to Thurs. Friday starts night and Monday day again.

    -Another rule I like many boards use are posting expectations. For example everyone most post at least every 36 to 72 hours.

    -Another is only players are able to participate. Period.

    -one you seem to be pushing, and I agree with, strictly stay within the game when posting. No BS about the other forums, members or politics. Plus RL is not a weapon to be used.

    Just my two cents :)

    I see no reason why we can't kindly kill one another. We are playing a game.

    I think zone 1 is fine because it will stop the BS that hurt this game. JMO

    We can still go after each other with game related tactics in zone 1.

    And without the other crap, it'll be a lot more fun for everyone.

    I know it will be for me.
