The Casual Playthrough Voting Thread

This thread is where we vote for the next Community Playthrough.
To keep it from growing unnecessarily long (and ultimately irrelevant for the CPT’s at hand), only the voting rounds for the previous and the current Community Playthrough can be found here.

The voting rounds for earlier CPT’s can be found in the Archived thread.

Well, it’s November in Chicago, and the weather forecast is for temperatures to hit the low 70s. I know this can’t last! Time to start the new Casual Community Playthrough thread.


We will continue the standard process. Nominations and voting will last 15 days and will close on either November 20 or if we go three straight days with no new posts. If there is a tie, everyone, including those who didn’t vote, is eligible to cast one vote for one of the tied games. Tie-break voting will last five days. If there is still a tie, the person running the voting process, (me in this case,) will break the tie. This differs slightly from the AGCPT process in that there are no carry-over votes. Voting to break the tie starts from scratch.

Games receiving votes during the last session are:

Royal Trouble
Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death
Azada in Libro
Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen
Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe’s Metzengerstein

All the above games had leaders, but you will need to volunteer again. Of the above games, only Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen requires the CE version to properly finish the game.

Several other games were recently discussed as possible playthrough candidates in the Casual Games thread. Please make sure they get nominated.

     

For whom the games toll,
they toll for thee.

All the above games had leaders, but you will need to volunteer again. Of the above games, only Final Cut: Death on the Silver Screen requires the CE version to properly finish the game. Also, Cluelass thinks Nevertales and Sable Maze should be played as a pair, similar to the way we played the first two Enigmatis games. So, if you vote for one, you probably need to vote for the other. If those two end in a first-place tie, we will play them both.

I would still be happy to lead Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death.

Also, for the sake of choice, I would like to propose Nevertales: Hidden Doorway + Sable Maze: Sinister Knowledge as a double header. Both are multi-genre and book-related, and the comparison would make for lots of fun. I would be willing to lead either or both. (BTW—there is always a sale on a holiday weekend so Thanksgiving should be a good time to buy a twofer.)

I usually vote for every game. (Except I don’t vote a game in the tie-breaking round for the reason I have stated in the past. I.e, If I were to vote in the tie breaking round and there was still a tie, and I have the vote to break the tie, that would mean I got two votes while everyone else only got one.)

Here I am in a conundrum. I played Nevertales: Smoke and Mirrors and really didn’t like it. It wasn’t a bad game, but the overall style didn’t appeal to me at all. So, while I almost certainly play it if it wins, I just can’t vote for it. And, since the request has been made to pair the new Nevertales game with the Sable Maze game, there lies my problem. As I suggested, if you vote for one you might as well vote for them both. Well, the opposite is also true. If you won’t vote for one, then you probably shouldn’t vote for the other.

Real life has become crazy enough that I won’t be able to lead Royal Trouble until after Christmas, unfortunately. Perhaps someone else would want to lead if it wins?

I won’t post until tomorrow, but I will lead Royal Trouble in your stead. Hope you will be able to play, even if you can’t lead.

Here I am in a conundrum. I played Nevertales: Smoke and Mirrors and really didn’t like it.

Tim, the nominated game is Nevertales: Hidden Doorway, not Smoke and Mirrors. Which one did you play? Anyway, don’t vote for something you disliked. I suggest we put down the double play as a separate nomination. Then people can vote for either one separately, and/or the pair if that is what they prefer.

I’m aware of that. I was using my having played Smoke and Mirrors as the reason I wouldn’t be voting for for Hidden Doorway.

Current vote as of November 8. Final update. Twelve days to go.

Well, it’s still November in Chicago. The weather forecast for the next seven days is for temperatures in the low-to-mid 50s. Quite a drop for last week, but still about 6 degrees above normal. This REALLY REALLY can’t last much longer!

We will continue the standard process. Nominations and voting will last 15 days and will close on either November 20 or if we go three straight days with no new posts. If there is a tie, everyone, including those who didn’t vote, is eligible to cast one vote for one of the tied games. Tie-break voting will last five days. If there is still a tie, the person running the voting process, (me in this case,) will break the tie. This differs slightly from the AGCPT process in that there are no carry-over votes. Voting to break the tie starts from scratch.

You can vote for either game individually, or vote for the pair by giving each game a vote.
