shraeye, or someone else too  busy to play, would you be interested in modding the next Less Pressure so I can play? Basically just need to be there to answer questions.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

Hi all!

The main site (www.lynchpool.com) is up and open for anyone.

Thanks so much for everyone who has helped out so far. I'm keen to get some activity going and I'd really appreciate anyone who can join in.

For anyone who wants to help, here is a list of ways to do so, in approximate order of priority:

1. Play. This is by far the highest priority. The goal would be to always have a game going (so new players can check it out before joining in), and to always have a beginner-friendly game not too far from starting (so new players don't have long to wait before starting their first game).

2. Invite people. Everyone's welcome, and the more players we can get, the more games will happen

3. Use the forum. Feedback is always appreciated, and it'd be great to have some friendly discussion outside of games.

4. Create flavour. I'm not sure how much flavourless games appeal to new players, so it'd be great if we could get some entertaining flavour written for our rated setups. Created flavour hasn't received much testing yet, and the info page on it probably needs a lot of work, so if this interests you, check it out and let me know when you get stuck.

5. Create and run setups. Play around with the options that already exist, and let me know when you want to do something you can't yet do. There's a wide world of Mafia setups out there, and having some demand for particular roles etc would help give me direction on what to implement. I think the ability to run test games with dummy players makes this a great way to try out your ideas before testing them on real players.

6. Beta test. I plan to deactivate most accounts on the Beta site, and to use it to test newly implemented interfaces, mechanics etc. Games that take place there will have short deadlines and probably some dummy players to fill them up. It'd be great to have a few people to check things out before they become available on the main site. Let me know if you're interested in being one of those people.

7. Be an admin. I already have 3 volunteers for this (shraeye, faust and Eddie), which is certainly more than enough for the time being. Admin responsibilities will be things like answering questions, approving flavour, promoting high-quality custom games (so they show up at the top of the list), and whatever else we come up with. As I said, 3 is plenty, but if you're super keen I'm not against having more.

8. Contribute financially. If you feel like the site is worth it and/or you'd like to support it in this way, every dollar is hugely appreciated, and it'd be great one day to be able to cover the costs of keeping it running. You can either upgrade your account or donate directly to the connected Paypal account.


Again, thanks so much to everyone who has or will join in in any way. Again, the main thing at the moment is to get some games happening so that new players have something to do.

As always, let me know if you have any questions, suggestions etc.

Hi Jim-

The plate worked great last night. I think the hybrid version we played with video chat and lynch pool to run the game was especially good because it didn’t need a moderator and I could play.

One super minor thing...I started the party, posted the link, went and did some stuff, and then it ended the party. Perhaps I was idle for too long?

Great! :)

Are there any changes you would suggest for this kind of game? As in, when you create a Party, you specify that it's for a video chat or IRL game and it works differently somehow?

The timer for ending the Party is 12 hours. If it was less than this, I'm guessing it's not being set properly when a Party is created.

One change (and I never know what is actually possible) that would be awesome for the hybrid game is if I could pin the group video link somewhere where it would be easy to see if folks who come looking.

For example, have the link under "WCD's Party" at the top of the screen?

Exactly! That would be especially helpful for platforms like Zoom where we’d need to post the link and the password.

Great idea, and not difficult at all. Do you want the password at the top of screen as well?

I think so...if someone manages yo make it that far into the game, we probably know them :)

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

Jim has gone legit and released the full site https://www.lynchpool.com
It will make you create a new user ID, and confirm your email before you can join a game.

I've made some improvements for the next Party:
  • Implemented the Star-Crossed setup. I'll add it to the Party setups before it starts.
  • The moderator of a Party can add a "Video Chat Link" and "Video Chat Password". These will appear at the top of each in-game page. These can be changed via "Settings" from the game's Home page.
  • PPE warnings in Parties should now only appear when voting, and only for other votes (or Day ends etc). Let me know if you'd rather have none at all, or also have warnings about votes when you're posting. If there's enough variety of preference maybe I'll add a per-user option.
  • Modkills are working as far as I can tell. Something weird happened last time with the votes. I'm not sure exactly what caused it, but a modkill now resets all votes (to avoid L-1 issues), so hopefully that covers whatever happened. Modlynches are now available, and can be used by the mod to enforce deadlines instead of random lynches if they want.

I also can't find the flavor area you were talking about, nor the option to create a game directly from the Games page, nor a list of possible setups, etc.

Maybe I'm on the wrong page?

Ah. As a free member you can't create setups (or do any of those other things), so you shouldn't be given the option to. I've upgraded you so now you should be able to do all of those things.
