Ok Ok Ok before all this gets out of hand.. No Rabbit playing a LOONEY game as a LOONEY Rep is allowed to play any AYAW? game of more than 15 people in a village.
I think this was specifically for the tourney games. No tournament game was allowed to be more than 15 people per village. The National AYAW tournament was run at Origins, and followed all the rules (including the 15 rule) because it was the Nationals. Or World Championships. Or something. :) As for others being allowed to play differently, I don't think it's the intent of Looney Labs to say "you're not allowed to play like X, Y or Z" - that's not the cool hippie sort of way of doing things and everyone has house rules. They've said that 15 people is how they intended play to be (it's in the printed rules) and if you sit and have a discussion about AYAW theory and strategy, it's interesting to see how games of 7 or 9 people happen. You have to be SO on TOP of your game, as either WW or Villager to survive - fewer people = fewer nights to find the werewolf = fewer other people to be mauled or lynched before they get to you. I'd never thought of the game in those terms before and it made me think a lot harder about the game - and made me think that I might like to play it with the cool people having the discussion, because AYAW is really not my favorite game. Moral of the story for me? I won't play in a game of 30, but I won't worry about whether or not they happen, I probably won't play in a game of 15, I may play in a game of 7 or 9. It sounds like a lot more fun. ymmv. peas out Carol
