    It's funny, I didn't think about it until after the Dark Circus game, but I had grandmanatees there too! Deva, Aloha, and Sandy were manators in that game, and were my manatees in the Child's Play game :lovey: The dubz family continues to grow!

    I found the original manatee list with @WildZoo and @Mad Jack

    Not many have continued playing, it looks like. Only @JaynaAli continued with a couple others.

    Most of them aren't even around anymore at all! I had good manators to get started. That game was fun, even though I was the first wolf to die.

    I didn't participate in the day, but had I, I would have shared STL's frustration.

    At its heart, WW is partly a communication game. Anything that discourages communication diminishes gameplay, imo. I know when I have limitations like that, I just sigh and decide "Ok, not gonna play today." Or, at a minimum, it severely limits my playing.

    That's why silencing sucks (though some limited amount can be pretty strategic). It's why French day, or whatever language it was, truly sucked. Things like that seem great ahead of time, but they end up not being so amazing.

    Just my opinion. Obviously, some people love them because of the humor value.

    Drinky drunk!!!!!


    Hey now, I was incredibly lenient. I only did the post restriction to make up for canceling night. This post would've even counted for the posting restriction. It was insanely lenient.

    My thing was, we didn't force people to only communicate drunkenly. So, was up to the players how much they wanted to do it and how much they wanted to make it easier to communicate, we left it pretty open. If you had been around that day you could have decided to just throw a hiccup at the end of your posts and that would have been enough.

    And village got a wolf that day anyway, so all in all, the communication issue didn't seem to be a problem when it counted.

    Silencing does suck though ;)

    It's your game, you do what you want. If you find it funny ... that's cool.

    I just personally think it lessens the game rather than improves it. But obviously you think it improves it. That's fine.

    C'mon. "Hey, it worked once" is a really bad argument for just about anything. Never use exceptions to try and dismiss a reasonable generalization.

    Yeah, I just don't participate on those days. Plus already difficult to keep up when you work long days with normal posts, add in abnormal ones and you've lost me. But to each their own.

    With over half the day left?
    I mean I get it. That's why it was clarified. A couple people were already posting with one drunken line and the rest normal by the time I clarified as well.
    That was a little tongue in cheek haha It just still tickles me that STL was griping about it but it worked out in his favor at the end of the day.

    I do think it worked better with Haxx's post restrictions in the SND Redux Redux game though, where from the outset it was stated as a reference to the post restriction, but interfered with communication less (I think we even had a drunken day there? Can't remember). That's what I was going for with the clarification as well.

    I read french day and that was ridiculous. I liked drunk day, although I think it might've been useful to have the amount of drunk needed per post set out initially so people would know they could *hic* and move on if they weren't into it. They'd still have to read drunk, but... it can be fun and it can be used in strategic ways which I like. Though I don't think that benefits village.

    from FL and was hoping to be a wolf his 1st time. You sure have an awesome grand-manatee! :love:

    We might just have to have a game based on the Dubz family sometime. Especially as it keeps growing

    And wolfing together would be awesome! Love how you collect those that love wolfing :D

    if you include step-manators and wolf pups you've got a number of roles available. Throw in baby mods and you've got plenty :D

    You've got plenty of games in the works but want to collaborate on this?

    I did the same. Way to busy to read through that nonsense. I checked the lynch vote, saw we weren't likely to be lynched and went along my way ignoring all of that nonsense.

    IMO one person with a posting restriction is fun, everyone is too much.
    But then again, I hate books written in "dialect" as well. That is painful and boring for me.
