What is the time commitment?
The length of the game depends on the game, number of players playing, and other factors. Players should expect to check in on the game once or twice every day for a couple of minutes, games can run from about a week long to a couple of weeks. Players that really get into the game may wish to spend more time on the game per day.
What are the rules for Social Deduction Games?
1. All content discussion of an ongoing game belongs in the thread (eg. no chats about who is what role). No private communications are allowed other than with the Host. The only exception to this rule is with explicit permission from the Host.
2. No posting screenshots of messages from the Host. You may say that the Host told you that you were a specific role, you may not post a picture of the Host sending you a message saying that.
3. You should vote every game phase. If you miss two votes you risk being Host-killed.
4. Votes must be done in the format below to be explicitly clear, bolding is necessary:
5. You must play the game to win.Example::Vote: Praetor
6. What the Host says goes.
7. Breaking any of the rules may result in removal from the game and inability to participate in subsequent games.
8. If you have died, you are still unable to discuss the game outside of the thread or privately with other people who are still alive. You may not discuss the game further in the thread as this may make people bias.
