Deception: Murder on Quarter to Three Forum Game


#22

Codenames works really well by forum, though it can be a rather more precise game than face-to-face. I’ve played quite a few games on a different site.


#23

Well, it takes away Codemaster metagaming.


#24

Oh, great, right when I go out of town, I get murdered. My timing sucks.

#25

Yeah, not that I don’t trust @Jorn_Weines, but I think I’ll have to do a second investigation into the murder victim.


#26

You’ve had a good run Tom.


#27

If there’s still room, I’d like to test out my detective/body hiding skills.


#28

I can confirm that Tom is doing quite well for a corpse.


#29

Game hasn’t even started and @CraigM is clearly the Accomplice.

Hello investigators!

Some of you will receive a PM from me with your role and your special information. We are playing with the Witness and the Accomplice. We are not using any events. If you do not receive a PM you are a normal investigator.

Once the Murderer has indicated what the key evidence is, I will decide the cause of death and location of the crime and start indicating clues.

Player order, clues and means:


#34

Completely packed day. The people who have roles have gotten their information. I don’t have time to post the first clue bullets until later, but here is the cards for cause of death, location and the initial four scene cards:


#35

Sorry I missed out on this. Hopefully I get to join the next one.


#36

Did I miss your signup? Terribly sorry!


#37

No, you didn’t miss anything. I just didn’t see the thread until this morning.

Y’all have fun. I’ll be following along.


#38

Hey, are sign-ups over? :)


#39

Huh, interesting. Build and relationship may be somewhat less useful in a group such as ours.

Relationship: everyone is a friend. Well poop.


#40

I thought those were all meant to be a clue for the vital information anyway, not a clue to the player.


#41

That’s a fair point!

I’m not sure how you could infer a weapon or clue from the various options there.

Though perhaps some would. Love letter definitely cues off one. And a few items may have a correlation to weight. Spoiled food? Certainly. Powder? Well nose candy certainly has some effects on weight.

Ok, I retract my previous assessment! I was definitely thinking in terms of ‘catch the person’ as the ultimate goal. Not nessecarailly ‘find the weapon’.
