Question

Since so many people signed up and aren't playing... do you guys want to restart with just the active people?

Werewolf games are good down to 9 people. Below that it gets silly. Just has to be an odd number of people...

Why does it have to be an odd number?

Because if it's an even number, the game could eventually result in 2 players remaining, wolf and villager, which doesn't work.

For the record, I think felix is correct, although, I think his reasoning is wrong.

In an even forum game, where 1 player will be daylight lynched every day no matter what, if there's say 4 wolfs and 12 villagers the wolfs have too strong an advantage based on the lack of the one extra villager vote (random vote). Similarly 3 wolfs vs 13 villagers is too unbalanced.

That was the sense I got from the games I played anyways.

Maybe you can go with the higher wolf count but have an angel?

ya, there's other ways of balancing it. I mean, ultimately it won't end the world if we just try crap out.

I vote restart. Also make anonymous accounts for all players, only you would know who is who.

This game is over soon anyway, so yeah go ahead. I'm also for kicking anyone who is inactive in the first day/night cycle, I don't want any lurking wolves.
