Ok I'm going to pop in and actually say something contributional. After my first mafia game, which was Awesomeness Mafia, a standard game. When I heard about the signips for Back to the Basics, I was pretty reluctant to join at first. However, I thought a bit for a second. I'm pretty sure that I have a long way to go before I can actually play with some of the more expert players (my thoughts became a reality when Accent almost moles the fuck out of me in Fuck the Mafia), so I guess I'll join this beginner's game to learn a thing or two, as well as get out of everyone's hair. :P
My point is that if I can make an unselfish gesture, I see no reason why everyone else can't play a beginner's game or two before officially moving up to standard. This could be entirely reliant on the players personality and selfishness, and I understand that there are no beginner games out right now, but when signups for a beginner's game do sprout up I expect some of you newer players to sign up, even if you've already played in a standard game.
A little more into the history of Spiffy, I played the game, became village leader, and completely swept the mafia (what wolf?). That is when I realized that moving up to standard was probably a good idea at that point. This brings me to the next part of my "plan" if you want to kill it that. I think that you should only move up to Standard if you did something significant in the game that helped your faction immensley. Now significant is in the eyes of beholder. Maybe in the postgame the host can mention players who did well in the game and say if they are ready to move up to Standard.
Comments are welcome for this plan thing. :)
