This game is pretty awesome, and I'm excited to try it here. Thanks to MSD for helping set up the forums for this - it's different than your standard mafia game, but the rules are just as simple.

Big picture:
The game has three to five rounds. This'll change depending how many signups we have.
There are two teams: red team and blue team
There is a green room and an orange room.
You will be assigned both a team and a room at the start of the game. Teams will be split evenly between the rooms (i.e. half of each team will be in separate rooms).

(Logistics: we're setting up private subforums/subgroups so that people can't see what's going on in the other room.)

Among the people on the blue team, there will be a president.
Among the people on the red team, there will be a bomber.

At the end of each round, some people will be selected to change rooms.*

The people on the blue team will win if the president is not in the same room as the bomber when the last round ends.
The people on the red team will win if the president is in the same room as the bomber when the last round ends.

This is not necessarily a game of deception. I like to think of it as a team-building exercise - you're trying to get enough support to send the bomber to the other room. Screenshots are allowed in PMs (maybe in forums - haven't decided which ruleset to use yet) - if you have trouble taking screenshots, just let me know and I'll verify identities.

The most important rule: You may not talk about the game with anyone currently in the other room (via PM, this thread, or otherwise).

Each room will choose a leader. The leader will be the person with a majority (five) votes at any given time. At the end of every round, the leader will choose people to switch rooms. The first round, the leader will choose three people. The second and third rounds, the leader will choose two people. During the fourth round, the leader will select one person to switch rooms.

This thread is to be used for general commentary and announcements, not for the actual playing of the game. Once the game's over, I'll move the threads back here so everyone can read what went on.

*A basic explanation which I'll synthesize here once signups are over:
