Tip for getting players: Add some mystery to the game, like and unexplained role or mechanic, or if the game is story based try to put some mysterious person/object.

Btw see what I found, sick amounts of work were put into this


I'll add the tips. Also that is pretty much an entire Forum Game. If you don't want to host it, I'll make a forum game idea section and will put it there.

No I just wanted to put this in a place where people who browse this forum regulary will see it. There is no such thing as a game ideas thread or a megahub anymore and I did not post it there while this things still existed. Btw here is an interesting fact about this game: the original reward for the winners was 5€.

As of today, we, Ibney000, InsaneSmile, and JammySplodge, have formed the Council of Consultancy. A group of members who will help to review your games and will manage the Guide to Hosting thread.

As of now, we are a small group, however, in the future, we plan to accept new members into the group based on their past experience in game hosting. All you have to do is apply to our head consultant, InsaneSmiles, and supply a list of your past game hosting experience, and we will review your application. To be accepted, 2/3rds of the consultants have to accept your application. If accepted, you will be invited to a discord chat where we will hold our meetings.

There are Guidelines for joining, however only the first is set in stone:
  1. Must be a trusted user
  2. Should have 4 games under their belt
  3. Should have good standing on the forums

You will be expected to follow guidelines set out below. If you do not follow these guidelines, the rest of the council will have a majority vote (1/2 of the council must agree to one side) on whether you will be kicked or not.

  1. No fights. Discussion is welcome, but arguments and fights should be avoided
  2. Do not harass anyone
More will be added as needed.



If you have any questions we will do our best to respond.

And just so the purpose of this group is clear, its job is to assist forumers in their game. This does not mean the consultant are necessarily willing to co-host, be sure to check the Finding a Co-Host section instead. It also doesn't make these people "mods" of this thread either.

Whether you like it or not, the forum games are a legitimate part of this forum. They're hundreds of them that many people enjoy. The only real reason I use the forums is because of it, and I have a feeling I'm not alone in thinking that. If you don't like them at is entirely you opinion, but I see no problem with trying to help out those who want it.

I am aware.
Case you didnt know/remember, I was in charge of the first masterthread and pushed for it to be a subforum in the first place.
I just think the whole making councils of evil thing is dumb and meaningless.

I did know you did that in the past but your current feelings seem to differ.
Sarah Thorpe wrote:Forum games was a mistake.

The name of the countries was simply a joke and with a name like "Council of Consultancy" we don't take ourselves to seriously. The purpose is to help those who want it. If you don't want help, that's fine, but I'm sure a newer user wouldn't mind a little. But I really don't see the crime in just trying to help.
