The Lost Case of Sherlock Holmes was a game designed and hosted by Akriti based on the literary works on Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

It began on October 1, 2011 and ended in a Goodie and Other Faction win in D3 ('October 9th, 2011).

Game Mechanics Edit

It was a standard mafia game with 7 goodies out of which Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson had a chance to gain BTSC; 3 Baddies, and 2 Scowers who had to gain BTSC in order to achieve their Wincon.


  • Moriarty can't die at night until Confederate is alive. He can be lynched, though.
  • Messaging - Only Holmes can start the messaging, once in the whole game. He send a message to a person (the message is sent to me with the name to whom he wants to send it). If that person is Jones then the message will reach Jones and Jones will reply to it, without knowing who sent it (he will post the reply to me)
  • OOA - RID kill > block > save > kill > spy
  • One won't get the spy results if the person targeted for the spy dies that night.
  • The kills are not blocking.
  • On any day, tie means both the players will flip coins for their life. (thanx to MO :) )
  • What will night/day post show/not show ?

RID kill - only successful is shown, Save - only successful is shown, Spy - never shown, Block - who was blocked by whom (role), NK - success/fail - not the carrier, Vote manip - never, Messages sent by Holmes or Jones - no, People finding each other and gaining BTSC - never, Simple kill - only successful, Action of bodyguard - never.

  • Baddies have to give name of player for NK to be carried.
  • Baddies can carry the NK themselves.
  • If anyone of the "other faction" dies, even before them gaining BTSC, the other person will be notified only that his partner is dead, and now he has the kill.

Host's Summary Edit

Game Idea and Expectations

The best part in this game was the shifting win possiblity from one faction to other. With the actions of N1, I was thinking that without Mo's leadership, baddies will be scattered. But, mo was able to survive D1. Congrats to him for his grear defences. Had he survived D2 as well, the MVP would have had been undoubtedly his.

When Mo was lynched, the game was highly in the favour of goodies, coz mo's leadership was very valuable for the baddies.

Nevertheless, in the whole game, Scowers were the luckiest from Day 1, when sherlock holmes was lynched, i.e., half of their wincon was fulfilled. And on N2, they gained their BTSC. Though, Benjer was very loud, but he didn't out himself the way that I would say was against the rules.After Night 3, one member of all factions was killed.

And to be frank, the most depressing part, was there wasn't any discussion, neither in the BTSC nor in the game thread.

The most funniest part, you guys lynched Sherlock Holmes Day 1! ! ! ! I was going Lmao for the remaining whole day. Seriously, the game was called SHM, and SH lynched D1. lmao

And my words for the inactives. I may sound harsh, but please, I hate inactives. If you know you won't be able to play, then don't sign up, and if this happens unannounced, plz, let the host know, so that you can be replaced. Don't play the way, you are online for one day, then inactive for the day, i.e., randomly being active.
