It's usually best when you have each circle with its own narrator.  I
find that in gigantic groups, you can get a game going as early as
possible so as many people learn it as they can, then you take
moderators from the first group to branch out with new games.  Just
make sure you bring enough copies :D

How does one handle these kinds of massive games?  Do you moderate them all
simultaneously, or does each circle have their own narrator?

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 game.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste
