How does one handle these kinds of massive games? Do
you moderate them all simultaneously, or does each circle have their own
I would be more than willing to try and pull together a huge game,
but the problem is that we only have about 4500 undergrads at our school. 200
would be a sizable portion of our student body, but I'm sure with my
connections across campus that I could get a good crowd. I don't have any
copies of the game, though, so I'll need to pick some up before then. It'll be
a good time, and really good practice on moderating this

Shane - this is
awesome! Let's play AYAW? on Halloween!
We just signed
off on the proofs, and it goes on press on Tuesday, so
we will have a new
edition of AYAW? shipping in late September - lots
of werewolves in
plenty of time for Halloween...
I think the 116 players that Billy
counted at 2 A.M. on Sunday night
at Dragon*Con is the largest collection
of simultaneous villages I've
heard of. What about adding to
your challenge, the challenge to
break the 200 player mark on number of
I'd be happy to send 14 free demo copies of the game to any
who wants to try to break the 200 player mark - and has the
scheduled with their university to have a room available that
14 circles of 15 chairs - that's 210
chairs! Yikes, maybe that's
just crazy talk. How would you go
about getting 200+ students to
gather in a room at the student union to
try to break this record?
Or is that bigger than what you were
thinking to try to run? :)
I'd say go for 100 players -
but that has now already been done!
Obviously a much smaller event
would also be wonderful...
Please continue to report on your progress
with your college
activities folks, let us know what you need from us to
whatever you end up deciding to organize!
The timing on
this is just about perfect, with two months to plan,
and a specific
target date to hold the event on, and a theme that
fits, and a game
that's great with a crowd. What better than
Werewolf on Halloween!
P.S. Has anyone ever measured how much square
footage a circle
of 15 chairs takes
