    Welcome to It's An Owners Market Sign Ups!

    I've attached the rule list, ability pool and sample PM's below which are all relevant if this remains a 13 player game, I do have the ability to tweak a few things to fit a 17 player game if necessary though and will post the amended rule list inside the game thread if that occurs.

    Day phases will be 4/1 up until D5 where it'll change to 2/1. Majority votes will not cause a lynch, deadlines will be fixed and the player with the most votes when deadline reaches will be lynched. There will a 24 hour pregame period that ideally I would like to start Thurs/Fri.

    I've not yet decided what time to have EOD at and given the importance of deadline in this game I'd like it if people could please state their preferred time when signing up. I will try and cater for the majority as I do have a co-mod for this game so can cover most hours of the day.

    If you've got any questions feel free to fire away as this is a completely open setup.

    Clarification, x2 just means you get two shots as opposed to x1 you only get one shot, or is it just that there's two of those items in the auction possible.

    ---------- Post automerged at 09:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:30 PM ----------

    Also, can mafia members share money to outbid town?

    ---------- Post automerged at 09:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:31 PM ----------

    Wait ignore that last question.

    Disappointed in both Eido and Vaimes.

    Newcomb - Looking to start in ~4 days and there's a 24 hour pregame period so I'm counting your in.

    Rubicon - Yeah, the original one I read was Maguas Marketplace Mafia; I've attempted to simplify it and turn it into an open.

    Miner - x2 is indeed two shots of the ability.

    That's fine, but if the game starts before 5 PM PST next Monday I'll be 100% ignoring it until then.

    No, he just needs to invert his impulses.

    If he wants to vote you, you're probably town.

    If he wants to town read you, you're probably scum.

    I see no way this could ever backfire.

    For the record, I also cast my vote for the preferred time of Newcomb/Waco (10EST/7PST).

    ---------- Post automerged at 09:31 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:12 AM ----------

    Clarifying questions:
    -Can a bid be retracted?
    -To be clear, prior to D5 whoever has the most lynch votes at EOD (irrespective of the number) gets lynched, correct? I can't imagine why it would come up that early, but is a no lynch even allowed?
    -Can you clarify "increase the odds by 400%" wrt to the marketplace owner? What exactly is the system for determining what is offered?

    The dailymafia forumgame is starting on monday (1 week from now).

    It is a fast game .. most likely 12/12 phases (talking hours, not days).
    Will most likely post less for a few days starting monday, but I should be able to juggle between those two games.

    Good timing otherwise, since I am still busy until friday.
