I think it's kinda weak that they can fail to subsume so easily.  50%?  Seems low.

That's only Discordians. Discordians get a 50% chance of converting, until they form a cabal. I think it's balanced.

Really it's the hint about who might have done it that screwed us.  Maybe of they got two fake names and one real one.

Perhaps. We will just have to wait and see what happens next time.  :lulz:

Feel free.  It's a fun game, but I won't have the time for a few weeks. Midterms.

Fred: no.  I'm mostly just interested in game design at this point.  The revenge will have to come later.

Much later.

You know Sig, TGG wouldn't have voted for you if I hadn't told her before I was killed off that you were the spider. :lulz: So we got lucky there, too.
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

I hereby release the concept and game mechanics for Spiders into the wild.

I no longer have time to moderate further games, so if anyone wants to take it, make adjustments, and try their hand, go for it.

I will say that it's a really good creative writing project, to be forced to write several hundred words a day, much of which is based on last-minute decisions made during play.



SPIDERS IS NOW PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Alright, I would like to try my hand at running a game of Spiders, if people would be interested in doing a third round. But I don't think i'll have time until December-ish to actually write like that everyday.
