Tips for hosting your round Empty Tips for hosting your round

As we now have a number of people signing up for rounds, I've decided to post some simple tips that will help your round be as fun and balanced as possible. I'll try to make things simple and concise, but you can always check the wiki for better tips. So without further ado, here's some basic things that you probably already know, but bear repeating. Check the spoiler tag for the list.

Spoiler:

I may add more later if I need to, but that's all for now. Hope this helped.

EDIT: Here's a small list of things you should NEVER do while hosting. While there are many discouraged things that fall under the category of "bastard mod" games, these are things that you shouldn't do even then.

Well since my game is a bastard mod game, this will come in quite handy.

Read again. This stuff is generally considered inexcusable, even for bastard mod games.

I think we should bring back the limitations of our earlier games (well, Stalin already did it) like making the doctor unable to protect the same person twice in a row (using the Jailkeeper instead like the guide says might work even better depending of the game balance), and expand that limitations to any combination that can be game breaking, like bulletproof and hider.

Although they have no means to investigate, if the players communicate and decide to trust each other, it's just like the hider was converted to another bulletproof. We had this combination in one game, and with few voters left we survived until the end.

In all fairness, it was the first time a tie between townies and mafiosos happened in our games.

Here's a tip for round hosting!
Don't force the amount of players based on the roles.
It might deter the experience + would force the admin to do oddball stuff when the requirements are not met.
