I think of a secret word. This word is given to some players, but other players have to guess this secret word. Each player is given one of the following roles:
-Ghost: tries to guess the secret word. Knows who the other ghosts are.
-Villager: knows the secret word and tries to prevent the ghosts from guessing the secret word.
-Fool: thinks he's a villager, but receives a different word. If the ghosts guess the fool's word, the ghosts do not win. If there is more than 1 fool, they all receive the same fool's word. Sided with the villagers.
The secret word can be essentially anything, like water, earth, scared, tiger, Italy, kebab, you name it. The ghosts only receive the number of letters in the secret word.
Once players have received their role (in spoiler ed text), they have to give a short description of the secret word. Ghosts have to make something up. Ghosts can try to wait and read the other descriptions first before they think of a description of their own, or they can try to take a risk and give some general description right away, or they can try to pretend they are a fool. Villagers can try to give a very vague description, but not too vague since other villagers might think they are a ghost.
After each player has given a description of the secret word, players will discuss with each other who they think is a ghost. Like in mafia, players need to vote other players and can get one player lynched. A majority of votes will get someone lynched. If a villager or fool is lynched, a new round of discussion and voting starts immediately. Fools appear as villagers upon death. If a ghost is lynched, that player gets 24 hours to guess the secret word (they get only 1 guess). If the guess is correct, the ghosts win. Else, a new round of discussion and voting starts immediately. If all ghosts are lynched and they have not guessed the secret words, the villagers (and fools) win. If there is an equal number of villagers/fools and ghosts left, the ghosts win.
-The hint phase starts when it is announced in the thread, and ends 6 days after. During the first 3 days, players will receive their role pm. As soon as you have received your role pm, you may give a hint about the secret word, but no later than 6 days after the start of the hint phase. If you have not given a hint by that time, you are out of the game.
-Only one post per player is allowed, and no other content than the hint about the secret word is allowed.
-Your hint may not contain more than 100 words, and preferably should contain only one or a few words.
-No cryptography is allowed in your hint. If you are unsure if your hint violates this rule, send me a message before you post your hint.
-Only the concept of the secret word may be described, not the way it is written. Saying the word is a noun/verb or saying it is an emotion/country/animal is fine, saying the third letter is a 'b' is not fine. If you are unsure if your hint violates this rule, send me a message.
-The secret word itself is not allowed in the description, unless you don't know the secret word (as a ghost or a fool).
-Once you have posted your hint, you may not change it in any way.
-The discussion phase starts when all players have given a description of their word.
-During the discussion phase, players will discuss who they think is a ghost and will vote for other players (Example: Vote: Lawrencelot). Once a player has received a majority of votes, they will be lynched. If discussion takes too long (more than half a week), I will impose a deadline. At deadline, the player with the most votes is lynched. In case of a tie, the player who had the most votes before the tie is lynched.
-No communication about this game is allowed outside this thread. You may use the Gojoe's thread to comment on the game, in spoilers, but it's against the rules to read spoilers pertaining this game on that thread.
-No direct quotes from the mod are allowed.
-Rules for the hint phase still apply here, except that there is no word or post limit, and you may mention the secret word in casual conversation.
-When a villager or fool is lynched, they are out of the game and may not post in this thread until the game is finished. Their role will be revealed, but the fool will appear as a villager.
-When a ghost is lynched, that player has 24 hours to post their guess of the secret word. Only 1 guess is allowed. If they guess the secret word correctly, all ghosts win. If not, the ghost dies and may not post in this thread until the game is finished. The ghost's role will be revealed on death.
-The discussion phase does not end until either side has won the game (ghosts guess the secret word, at least half of the players are ghosts, or all ghosts are dead).

Note: fool's word is of the same length as the secret word. Fool appears as villager on death.

Your partners are Player B and Player C, but you are not allowed to communicate with them privately. You win when you or one of your partners guesses the secret word after a lynch, or when at least half of all players are ghosts.
