Among Us

Post by Gergall »

I don't know if this is the best forum to talk about this but somebody finally went and made a Werewolf game that's an actual game and not just played in a forum. Wait, let me rephrase that - it came out 2 years ago but it has suddenly just been "discovered" how much fun this type of game is, and so Among Us has just now become very popular 2 years after release.

Among Us is themed around astronauts on a spaceship, with most being real "crewmates" and some being murderous alien "imposters". Players can vote to eject a suspected imposter into space. Max game size is 10 players which could be anywhere from a 9-1 split to a 7-3 split.

This game diverges from Werewolf in that the game has locations. Crewmates have objectives they need to complete by going to certain places ("wiring fix needed in Navigation room"). Some jobs would put a player at lesser or greater risk of being killed by an imposter between meetings. It could make sense to request an untrusted player to do a dangerous job, for example. Sending 2 or more players to do a job together could keep them safe at the expense of getting less work done.

I haven't played it but I have checked it out a bit. I am wondering if anyone has given it a try. I think I saw that it can also be played on phone.

we've been talking about this in slack the last week or so.


I got it a few days ago. A little fun but I imagine the fun would be multiplied by alot if it was played via discord or zoom w a bunch of fellow nerds.

i've been watching it on twitch a good amount, a lot of hearthstone streamers are playing intermittently with each other

agreed it looks the most fun when you're all on discard voice chat at the same time

free to download on phone, but the controls are a little slower than if you had it on computer i'm sure

I suggested we try this during the worlds event. Depending on the schedule for games, we may have some downtime where we could play this or other games on tabletop simulator during the weekend.

Did you happen to see a little event called TMW?

If it's done, it'll have to be on a different weekend, the world's weekend will be nonstop swccg.

But I'd be down for playing/streaming some time Image

Not true depending on which schedule we do.

Bastian's proposal was 4 games on Sat and 4 on Sunday for everyone. So we're talking like 4-7 hours. We'd definitely have time in this scenario.

I don't think we are going to do what we did for TMW either. I think it will end up being something different and some people may have time to do this kind of stuff as well as play swccg.

That sounds like it makes sense Keith. I don't know much about discord aside from the holotheater episode I did.

Or if you do it’s because of Batlogic that you’re the actual imposter and you knew that I would know

Can it have observers, or only players?
