 Posted: Tue Sep 24, 2002 7:50 pm    Post subject: 1 Here is the basic idea, You are townspeople in a fairly small town which has a serial killer running wild, all you have to do is figure out who it is. Here are the rules. Players will play in a town with 20 different locations and the following connections: code:1 - 2 | | 3 - 4 - 5 | | | \ 6 - 7 - 8 9 | | \ | /| A B - C -D | / | \ | \| E F - G H \ | | \| I - J -K I hope that's clear, I'll work on a better map soon, anyway here is the key to the map: code:Symbol Location Resident 1.) Harbor Boat master 2.) Gas Station Attendant 3.) Radio Station DJ 4.) Restaurant Owner 5.) Library Librarian 6.) Police Station Police Chief 7.) Fire Station Fire Marshall 8.) School Principal 9.) Town Hall Mayor A.) Local News Paper Reporter B.) Pharmacy Pharmacist C.) Park Homeless Man D.) Courthouse Judge E.) Local Firm Accountant F.) Photo Booth Photo Developer G.) Grocery Store Grocer H.) Records Building File Clerk I.) Rest Home Senior Citizen J.) Theater Movie Projectionist K.) Manor Bill Gates OK, now that that is taken care of I can get on with the rules. This game will be everyone against one killer, the object is to figure out which player is the killer. I will select a player at random at the beginning of the game. That person kills two town residents the first night. Then each day the killer moves one space along the board and can choose to kill the resident there. The killer does not have to kill everyday, but must kill at least once every three days. The object of the killer is to kill 10 town residents or eliminate all of the players. The players can start the game on any space they choose. I will then e-mail you to tell you if the resident there is alive or dead. You can do whatever you would like with this information. Once everyone has received their info they can then move along a path to a new location and find out if that resident is alive or dead. And so on. Once you have made a move you can not move again until everyone else has already moved. Every two days there will be a killing spree in the town. All the players will submit to me who they beleive to be the killer. If you are correct you will be safe that night. All those who are incorrect however will be on a list sent to the killer, who then gets to eliminate two of you from the game. If all of the people in the town correctly identify the killer then the game ends. I hope all that is clear.I'll answer any questions if you have any, I think this game would be great if we can get about 20 people in here. It should be a lot of fun. Players ralphmerridew - Photo Booth jadesmar - School Werebear - Police Station crackerjack - Radio Station Leonidas - Pharmacy Corsato - Library Termital - Grocery Store Lucresia - Restaurant Wordcross - Library The Accountant - Fire Station OK, I have made a few changes to the rules, like the goal for the killer is now to kill 10 town residents instead of 12, and must kill once every three days, not every other day. Other than that no changes. I have listed beside your names where you currently reside. Any other information is up to you to declare. I will post important information as it becomes...well....important, anyway, good luck to all. [This message has been edited by Cyberdork (edited 11-24-2002 04:51 AM).]

 Posted: Tue Sep 24, 2002 10:47 pm    Post subject: 8 There was an MSW board game, and the rules were pretty similar to the rules to this. At the beginning, the roles were randomly distributed, with one person getting "killer" and everyone else getting "Jessica". The killer's goal was to kill a certain number of witnesses then escape. Each Jessica's goal was to accuse the killer, but a false accusation would knock that player out of the game for good.

 Posted: Wed Sep 25, 2002 2:38 am    Post subject: 10 Ralph is exactly right, and that is why I had kept murder she wrote as the title. I have that board game and that's where I got the idea from, I just didn't think anyone had ever heard of it. I changed some of the rules around a little bit but the basic idea is the same. Anyway, I"ll change the title to serial killer.
