    He’s made the list and now he’s checking it twice.

    It was just over a month before Christmas and old Saint Nick was double checking his list and he couldn’t help but notice one village where the number of naughty children was rising daily. Something or someone was influencing the children to be naughty. Santa decided to visit this village to see what is happening and to see if he can sniff out and stomp out the naughty influencers.

    Team Good

    1.      Santa Claus – Santa is equipped with his magical list so he gets to pick one villager once a night to see if they are naughty or nice.

    2.      Mrs Claus – Concerned with Santa’s trip, Mrs Claus demanded she comes with her husband to protect someone in the village each night. Mrs Claus has been separated from Santa since arriving in the village, can she find her way back to Santa before it’s too late?

    3.      Kevin McCallister – One of the kids in the village is none other than Kevin McCallister who is once again Home Alone but this time in a snowy village, While Kevin is very much a loner and a Vigilante will he get the time he needs to assemble his weapons before the wolves attack?

    Team Bad

    1.      The Grinch – The Alpha of the pack, the grinch is so desperate to ruin Christmas for the village he wants all the Children to be on the Naughty list. The Grinch has been granted 3 powers by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present & Future. One for each night… if he survives that long.

    2.      Marv – Wolf, Marv wants one thing and that’s to get revenge on Kevin McCallister.

    3.      Harry – Wolf, Harry is happy to be here. 

    Almost all other villagers are NRV.

Always remember the mods may have secrets. 

    3) Please all try to reasonably contribute to the game thread and always remember to get a vote in (where it is possible for you to do so) as a minimum. There is a 5 post per day minimum limit. 2 missed votes will result in a substitution where possible or a modkill. Substitutions will be announced on thread by the game mods.

    4) No posting of any PM's from the game mod or referring or alluding to the content of them or any backroom you may or may not have, without prior permission. Note that there are new players playing, they may have been provided with backrooms to ask questions of the game mods irrespective of game role.

    It was Day 0 in the village and not a villager was stirring not even a wolf.

    Quickly all will change when the village begin to realise the game is afoot.

    Welcome to WW: Naughty or Nice Christmas Forum edition.

    Just a friendly reminder only living players are allowed to post in this thread.

    Morning everyone. Isn't this exciting!

    Conscious we have a few new players playing so we might need to explain some terminology along the way

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,997 ✭✭✭✭Leg End Reject

    That's very nice Lorcan, almost like a wolf overdoing it to appear like a villager.

    Haha this has been a long time in the making, hasn't it leggy? You feeling naughty or nice today?

    Anything interesting jump out at you in the OP? Don't worry I'm not trying to trick you, just want to get some opinions

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,997 ✭✭✭✭Leg End Reject

    The Grinch has been granted 3 powers by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present & Future. One for each night… if he survives that long.

    This did, I can't figure out if The Grinch has 3 powers in total, or a choice of 3 they can use every night of the game. The latter seems too powerful for the number of players.

  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭lorcand1990

    If I had to guess I'd say a specific power each night for 3 nights,.. as in they are told what power they get night 1, 2 ,3.. only 3 wolves too which I think is low so they get some extra powers to balance?

    On thread tasks jumped out to me and also that marv wants to get revenge on Kevin, could be something in play there?

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,997 ✭✭✭✭Leg End Reject

    On thread tasks usually have helpful prizes, so a villager might be immune to the munch or a wolf will peek good.

    Maybe Marv gets something similar if he kills Kevin? The third wolf is described as just happy to be there. It could all also just be flavour in the OP based on the movie.

  • Registered Users Posts: 642 ✭✭✭Sixtoes

    Morning all. So it looks like we’ve only 3 bad guys out of 17 players.

    Here's another strange line from the OP:

    Almost all other villagers are NRV.

    Surely everyone apart from the RVs and wolves are NRV? Is LoughC playing mind games with us?

  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭lorcand1990

    Hey there sixtoes. Yeah thats it alright, odds seem decent but usually there's a few twists along the way!

    Have you played before?

  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭lorcand1990

    Good spot, yeah that is phrased very specifically. A little too specifically is you ask me

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,997 ✭✭✭✭Leg End Reject

    And you know me, I'm not one to overthink these things. 🤣

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,365 ✭✭✭StrawbsM


    I have missed this!!!!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,644 ✭✭✭nothing

    Morning village! How's everyone doing?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,365 ✭✭✭StrawbsM

    I’m excited, nothing! Been a while since I’ve played a game of WW 😊

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,644 ✭✭✭nothing

  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭lorcand1990

    In homage to the game I'm actually heading to the local Christmas Market today!

    Only nice people are allowed in 😉

    Ah it's good to be back! First WW since forever

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭Ectoplasm

    And we're back. Well a few of us. Have barely been near Boards since the great migration but was having a yen for a game of WW when someone kindly pointed me in the direction of the Christmas forum. Woohoo!

  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭ Cup

    Hello villageroos.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,070 ✭✭✭✭y0ssar1an22

    sup folks

  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭ Cup

    I’ve played WW before, but not much, so I don’t know all the roles. Does anybody know what it means about Mrs. Clause having to find Santa before it’s too late? Im assuming she can still protect without finding him.

    And for Kevin, what’s the story with him having to assemble his weapons, does anybody know?

    I think that was a good spot by Leg End Reject about the “almost all”, and I reckon the Grinch has three nights of powers.

    Actually, I also don’t get if something special will happen if Marv munches Kevin specifically. #IDont’tUnderatandAllTheseRoles!! #Kevin!! 🫣

  • Registered Users Posts: 642 ✭✭✭Sixtoes

    Haven’t played in a few years and I wasn’t great then. Trying to remember all the lingo!

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,041 ✭✭✭kitten_k

    Afternoon all, great to be back playing! Also great to see some old names back too. Here’s to a great game!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭lorcand1990

    I reckon if Mrs clause can find santa they may be able to communicate in some way. Probably best not to speculate on it too much and leave it to them to figure out as otherwise we might be helping wolves identify power roles? That's just my take on it though

    I do think if Marv finds or kills Kevin something bad will happen based on the OP, although the word revenge might hint that if Kevin shoots Marv, marv gets revenge!? Aahhh so Kenny permutations
