Default What was the best EC game of all time?

Can add a poll later. I'm partial to a couple of them that I ran. A Tale of Two Exam Committees, where there were two exam committees and Candidate List Lost, where the player list was unknown.

Funny thing, though. I just searched for the threads and couldn't find the Two EC game. When I finally find a link to the thread, in this thread: http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...ight=tale+exam, the link doesn't work, says I don't have access. Is it in a subforum that I need to put a password in for, or did it get removed?

I couldn't get the link to work either.

I also found a different link, but I couldn't get into that one either. Not sure why it would be locked. Maybe ask Tom?\

I really liked this one, too. It was utter chaos pretty much the entire game and the paranoia seemed particularly strong, but I did enjoy it.

I'm rather partial to this one, but not because I was EC. There have been others where I was EC that I didn't enjoy so much. But this one was a lot of fun.

Why do I feel so worried about it being noticed that I edited my post above?

Wasn't the Tale of Two Exam Committees the one where we played as alts? I really liked that. Plus, it was how CindyLou came to be my main ID.

Some other that stick out:

My very first game, where I happen to be Exam Committee and was the last one standing (though we lost). I thought I had a pretty good death scene, too.

There was another where I had a power role, and bread crumbed it, and then was forced to reveal it. Thought it might be the Doctor Who game, but couldn't find it in that thread.

Another was the Exam Committee alternative game where we all had "disguises" and had to figure out who each other was. That was a great game, that I was all set up to win until someone went out of town and didn't get my PMs for what needed to be done. Something like that.

Ah yes, the beach party. That was also my first game and I had zero idea what I was doing.
