Hi everyone-

If you are new to SDN, new to the pre-vet forum, or even been here awhile and never participated, it is your chance (again) to participate in the our fun WW (short for werewolf) games. These are basically a play on the werewolf party game or the Mafia on-line games. They have a long (storied) history in SDN starting in the lounge (also called the Wolf's Den) and migrating to the pre-vet forum where I introduced them in 2012.

This will be the second time we run a 'noob' game, the idea being that a bunch of people who know nothing about these games are given a shot to learn together, and hopefully one day join the rest of us in WW-ing.

Take my advice: WW is an absolutely wonderful way to distract yourself from pre-vet applications, or college exams, and beyond. We have players who are pre-vet, in vet school, licensed veterinarians, pre-med, in medical school, and human doctors, and even some people who have nothing to do with the medical profession (anymore). There is no better way to procrastinate from filling out that application or studying for an exam, or to while away the hours while waiting for someone to send in your LOR, or to hear back if you got an interview.

Here is a link to some of the WW games we have run in the first 2 years. More recent ones not included:
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/celebrating-two-years-of-ww-games-in-pre-vet.983713/

You can also search on-line to learn more about WW and Mafia games.

For now, you don't need to know anything, all you have to do is sign up. Once we get 20-40 players we will close this sign up and start the game soon thereafter. Just quote this message (or actually the most recent one that someone has signed up on) and add your name to the list.
@Lupin21 and @StartingoverVet (aka SOV) will be your moderators.

Feel free to ask any questions.

If you sign up you must be willing to participate or this doesn't work. Welcome aboard... and have fun.

That game is a large part of the reason I'm still on SDN. That first game felt so intense lol.

WW is a great way to distract yourself and make new friends on the forums, or to just have some fun.

I've always wanted to play but have absolutely no idea how...and it seems like we have to be pretty diligent about checking the thread. Would I screw up the game if I didn't check it daily, or only checked it every night? I'm trying to stop hiding under the covers of SDN and start studying more...

I volunteer as mentor as well, if being mentor just means answering questions about how the game works. I offer nothing in terms of actual skills :p

You want to check in at least once every lynch (day) cycle. But the cycles can end pretty late so checking in at night may be ok if it's before lynch closes.

Yeah, these days I don't have the free time to close early, so it will be late closes.

Well, that's if I make it through lectures tomorrow. They decided to triple a class and I may have threatened to stab my eyes. We'll see.

I thought that wasn't your game plan anymore since that would make the micro practicals extraordinarily difficult :p.

And the better question is, do you know where I will be living by the time I get you killed? :p
