LXXVII Spawn III: Game Over (See Post 4507)
 
With the draft winding down I thought I'd try and catch some people before the 4th of July weekend. I am running the next game.

A while back I asked people to help me decide the theme for my next game and two winners came out, with many people requesting Spawn 3. So we're going to see if we have enough players for Spawn.

Spawn is a constantly evolving game, with conditions changing through-out the day, and is thus more time intensive than many games we run here. Everyone has two roles, a public role and a private role, and there can be actions associated with both. The villagers are faced with the task of not only staying alive, but also completing an assortment of tasks, such as repairing their ship and going on away missions, all while fending off the impending menace of the Spawn. This is chock full of stuff, whether it is death, conversions, or just staying alive. To see what I'm talking about you might want to take a look at the first two games:
Spawn I
Spawn II

Spawn, because of its commitment, isn't for everyone. And to run it right I feel we need at least 18 players. So I'm gaging interest to see if we can get 18 players. If we can't we'll do Cathedral 2 instead. If we go with Cathedral it would run with long days and short night actions with approximate deadlines of 9 PM and 11 PM Eastern. So while signing-up please say whether:
You'll play no matter what the game is
You'll play Spawn only
You'll play Cathedral only

Either Game
1. Hoops
2. Clap
3. mccollins
4. Marc Vaughn
5. KWhit
6. path
7. Pass
8. Danny
9. jeheinz
10. Tyrith
11. Chubby
12. bulletsponge
13. Schmidty*
14. saldana
15. The Jackal
16. Render
17. Telle
18. Alan T
19. Mrs. Schmdity
20. LoneStarGirl
21. PurdueBrad
22. oliegirl
23. PackerFanatic


Rules
Start of Game

hoopsguy 07-03-2008 12:15 PM

In, will play whatever but considering Spawn (I) is my favorite villager game ever I'm probably partial to that one.

claphamsa 07-03-2008 12:26 PM

il play! as long as i dont have a mental breakdown from this draft game :)

st.cronin 07-03-2008 12:27 PM

I will only play Cathedral.

Mrs. Schmidty 07-03-2008 12:27 PM

Because of the time commitment for Spawn, I'll play Cath.

oliegirl 07-03-2008 12:42 PM

I'm in for Cathedral, Spawn just looks too involved to try to keep up with while I'm working :(

jeheinz72 07-03-2008 12:42 PM

I'm in for Cathedral for sure. Spawn might be tougher on my given my schedule (really only on from 9 AM - 6 PM EST)

mccollins 07-03-2008 12:58 PM

I'm in for whatever

hoopsguy 07-03-2008 01:01 PM

Just a word to those who are saying "whatever", Spawn is a lot of fun. It takes a day or two to figure out how everything fits together, but it is a very cool ruleset.

I didn't play in the 1st Cathedral game, so I'm probably not qualified to offer a comparison of the two games.

Marc Vaughan 07-03-2008 01:05 PM

I'm in - got lynched fairly quickly last time .. currently painting targets onto shirts for this time around ;)

KWhit 07-03-2008 01:11 PM

I'm in but would much prefer Spawn.

Heh, can only go up from what happened last time around :) Welcome back.

That schedule works well with Spawn actually, and could just submit early night actions, if needed.

path12 07-03-2008 02:01 PM

In for either or both.

st.cronin 07-03-2008 02:03 PM

I actually can probably do Spawn, too, if you come up short on players.

oliegirl 07-03-2008 02:05 PM

If you end up being short one player, I'll try Spawn, but it does intimidate me...

KWhit 07-03-2008 02:08 PM

Spawn is fun. You guys should give it a try.

Passacaglia 07-03-2008 02:13 PM

Spawn I was my first WW game ever, but I missed Spawn II. On the other hand, Cathedral I was probably the first game featuring vocal Pass. I'd play either.

st.cronin 07-03-2008 02:16 PM

I didn't play either of the first two Spawns. Cathedral I is on my short list of most enjoyable games, though.

PackerFanatic 07-03-2008 02:31 PM

I don't think I have tried any of them - and although Spawn sounds a little intense, it could be fun. Sign me up.

I'm not trying to pressure people into playing Spawn. Frankly the game is complicated and intense. The first two games both saw good commitment the whole way through and considering the time some people invest (including me) I'd rather just not run the game then run it with some people who are going to have trouble. If we end up running Spawn cause we get to 18, I will gladly include you, and others who want to be included, but the choice is a real one.

hoopsguy 07-03-2008 02:43 PM

I'm trying to pressure people into playing Spawn because ... well, basically because I'm selfish and want to play a sequel to a really fun game.

Oh it will? Ok great then, put me down for either.

Tyrith 07-03-2008 03:39 PM

I'll take either -- Spawn pref.

Danny 07-03-2008 03:43 PM

I'm not sure what to make of Spawn. You guys say it's fun though, so I'll sign up for either. My vacation is over next week, but its the summer so I only work 8-1 and I want to get in as many WW games in before August as I'll have to retire from the game for a while then.

PackerFanatic 07-03-2008 03:44 PM

I actually better step out for this one. I will follow the game and maybe get in for the next one, but I need to sharpen up my skills a little before jumping into something this complex.

Cathedral is a more traditional game. Should I put you down for that?

Yeah, why don't you do that.

If you guys DO end up playing Spawn, I will try and follow closely. I really enjoy reading the nontrad games, as those seem more fun.

Chubby 07-03-2008 05:45 PM

sure what the hey. I haven't played in a while, I'm down for either.

Poli 07-03-2008 06:45 PM

Sign me up for a possible Cathy.

bulletsponge 07-03-2008 07:00 PM

Hmmm ill sign up. im not working and im bored. i played one of the spawn games and enjoyed it ( i probed chubby :) )

hoopsguy 07-03-2008 07:25 PM

Welcome back, Chubby!

Schmidty 07-03-2008 07:29 PM

I'll play Spawn again, depending on whether we have to play on the weekend or not.

If we don't have any deadlines on the weekends again, I'm in.

Also, make me a Spawn again. I can't imagine being anything else. :D

saldana 07-03-2008 07:31 PM

in for either...spawn 1 was one of my favorite games ever!

The Jackal 07-03-2008 07:37 PM

Ohh yes I'm in, I've been hearing all about Spawn and I'm psyched

The Jackal 07-03-2008 07:37 PM

sorry didnt read the whole signup - id play either

RendeR 07-03-2008 08:05 PM

I'll join either one.

Telle 07-03-2008 09:26 PM

I'll play anything.

bulletsponge 07-03-2008 09:38 PM

EagleFan 07-03-2008 10:54 PM

I'll try but for cathedral only. Won't have the time to dedicate for the other.

me too

Chief Rum 07-04-2008 05:50 AM

I don't like to miss one of your games, BK, but I am unfortunately going to have to sit this one out. I have heard great things about the Spawn games. I died too soon in the first Cathedral game, but it looked like fun, too.

But between this and the Historical Draft, I got really tossed trying to keep up with things (along with fatefully bad timing on work needing me to work mucho OT). So I am pretty fatigued at the moment. Plus, I am running the next game, and I still have some things to nail down for it.

Otherwise, though, I would definitely play. I will be following along, whichever game it is.

I'm surprised your schedule allowed you the time to post this, and in less than a day, no less! :D

Spawn was great fun - although I don't recommend playing from England otherwise you have a tendancy to wake up in the morning somewhat lynched ....

(abeit I was guilty as heck ... but I looked innocent, honest ;) )

Mrs. Schmidty 07-05-2008 11:22 PM

If it's not too late, I'd like in if it's Spawn - either one really. I would like to play a more complex game and I'll do my best to work around my schedule.

Not too late at all. Rules and such should go up tomorrow with the plan for a Night 0 Monday Night with 1 decision to be made by the Captain, and then a Tuesday Day 1. So sign-ups will close Monday night. If you were another player who indicated that you wanted to play Cathedral only but have changed your mind please let me know and we'd be glad to have you.

path12 07-06-2008 02:23 AM

Spawn! Woo!

claphamsa 07-06-2008 10:23 AM
