Well, haven't checked my e-mail yet so I'll have to see what that message is.
As for how the prizes will work, I didn't want to say too much about them at first so as not to have that influence the game. But unlike other games, I didn't want to make a convulted points system either. So, the method I came up with is a random draw. Therefore, anybody can win, even somebody voted out on day 1. Winning the game will increase your chances but it's not a guarantee.
Plus, by keeping it on the downlow, I was hoping it would be a special bonus to reward people who signed just for the fact that they still like playing mafia. So, how will the draw work?
Simple. First, everyone who signed up gets their name on a slip of paper and it is put in a bucket. From there, every player who was alive at the start of day 2 gets another entry. Every player alive at the start of day 3 gets another entry and everyone alive at the start of day 4 gets another entry. The winners then get 2 extra slips thrown in for their benefit. So, like I say, everyone has a chance and the better you did, the better odds you have but it is not a slam dunk like in the past. I think it might be a better to handle prizes and I'd like to hear your thoughts on it.
The only negative I see is the argument that non-participating people have better odds because the mafia will keep them around. But I'm not going to worry about that this time around.
Now if I name is chosen from the bucket and I reach in again and choose that same name, does that mean that person wins two prizes? No. The first time that name is selected is the order people will get to choose in. Once a name is chosen, any entries of their name still in the bucket are void for inclusion on the prize list.
Everything clear so far?
