A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

revised Is there a competitive version of werewolf/mafia?
Typo: willing>winning (I think it was a typo, anyway). Also added paragraph breaks where linebreaks apeared in the Markdown source. A couple of minor grammatical tweaks.

comment Can I use my Tafl game to play Thud?
As I by the way, @Pureferret, I bought myself a Thud set at the Irish Discworld Convention a couple of weeks ago, so it looks like it's back on the market.

comment Interesting boardgames to play with children.
@Lohoris. There are definitely different playing styles in Uno. The nasty cards have little impact at the beginning of the game, so some people prefer to hoard them till the end, when they can use them to better effect. This is risky, though, as another player may go out, leaving you with a bunch of high-point cards. On the other hand, having no nasty cards means you can't protect yourself when someone plays one on you. It's a question of balance, and different players have different strategies.

comment What is the best tournament format for Cripple Mr Onion?
Actually, the edit didn't change the question. That is what I was originally asking. I just phrased it very poorly. All praise to Pat for interpreting me.

I've added a comment on the number of players. And a link to the rules, which doesn't work, for some reason, so here it is again: filedump.ýes.info/Cripple%20Mr%20Onion.pdf.

I don't know who gave you the downvote. You probably don't deserve it. You didn't answer my question, but my question was so badly phrased before Pat's rewrite that this is hardly your fault.

comment Games that play well with a wide range of different numbers of players
As I said, it depends on what you're looking for. I like the phrase "auto-plays", though.

I know the rules: as I said, I've played it a few times. It's running a tournament I know nothing about.

That's it. I didn't have enough rep to create a new tag. It's a real game, and I've played it a few times (with the Fat Pack, an eight-suit card deck). But I've never played the gambling variant, and I've never played with all the modifiers, and I've never run a tournament of any kind.
