So, I had an idea about a game that can be played in the Liar Game. I'll disclose the rules first.
The game is called the "Knockoff Campain"
-This game is designed for 16 players
-Each player invests 100M : 1600M are up for grabs.
-The setting is a Bid Poker-like room, with a central screen, tablets, and multiple rooms to hide and discuss.
-No stealing tablets. The LGT has already done the finger registration on the tablets.
The point of the game is to elect a "President" via the majority rule. Once a "President" is elected, the game is over. How do we elect a "President"? The game is set up of multiple rounds :
Round 2 and subsequent rounds
Each round will see the number of Candidates diminish, until there is two Candidates (then, it's a tie or the end) or until a round sees a Candidate with more than 50% of the votes (early election)
This means the game can last only 1 round, or as long as 45 rounds (including ties)
Once a "President" is elected...
What does it mean?
It means that if a player is elected unanimously, he ends up with 400M, and everyone ends with (1200/15)M= 80M. The more votes the President has, the more players win money, the smaller the shares.
The President always wins more money.
As the game progresses, Citizens's power rises. If you have a solid group like Akiyama, making everyone of your group except one person a Citizen might be an option....but then the only Candidate of the group has to vote for an opponent.
Making a 2-man alliance only makes you last the first few rounds because
So in the end it's a battle of groups
It might or might be tempting to drop out of the game in the beginning to try to have an early election of the President, for a good share of the 1200M.
Voting equally for everyone is not a good option.
I think this game has a good depth...I'll try this with some IRL friends when I have the chance, but it's hard to do online (because online you can easily have private conversations, and you can lie way too easily...)
