The game is back!

Read on for info and updates...

The wait is over, guys! The game is online again! You may not believe it, we're skeptical too honestly, but Fleox and his sidekick have managed to get everything back on track. Remember Fleox? FML remembers. (He's still here so why shouldn't we?) Anyway, we'd like to take this opportunity to....

 

- thank you for your patience

- provide details about the rules of the game

- answer some questions about the game

 

We'll start with the most important, of course: Thank you so much for being patient with us! We're running a large website with a small team and we really appreciate you guys sticking around despite the bugs and issues.

 

Now for the rules: Only humans can be bitten! To be bitten again, you must use a magic potion on yourself. You can also use a potion on another user (to turn them human as well).

 

Each player can get up to three magic potions for the duration of the game. The first is obtained with 10 bites, the second with 20 bites, and finally, the third with 30 bites. After 30 bites and your third potion, you won't get any more.

 

We can already hear you moaning, and rightly so. This concept was not explained in previous articles. To make up for this, we're giving back three magic potions to any players who had already made more than 30 bites by 11am Wednesday.

 

Regarding the end of the game and the winners, we're keeping the 6 winners distributed among the three families. Here's a recap:

 

The top three members of the top family will win:

-10 kg of candy for number 1

-5 kg of candy for numbers 2 and 3

 

For the family in second place:

-5kg of candy for numbers 1 and 2

 

For the family in third place:

-3kg of candy for number 1

 

...and we're adding three more winners! Plot twist! It will be the top three players in the overall ranking (all families combined) who are not already winners in the family ranking above. These three players will win 3 kg of candy each.

 

Back to lamer stuff for a moment: The game will not be accessible on the app, but it is available on the mobile version of the site. We love all our app users, but if you want to play the biting game, you'll have to visit us from a browser. Sorry about that!

 

We've also fixed some other random bugs and added what the user will transform into on the countdown timer on profiles.

I would like to play as werewolf or zombie instead of vampire, as there are already way too much vampires anyway. Unfortunately I have no potions left. So if anyone wants an active player in family werewolf or zombie, feel free to turn me ;-)

Also, I am wondering about the game countdown timer: I guess it means to say end of game in so many days, hours, minutes. How is the "j" connected to days? I'm not a native english speaker, could somebody enlighten me, please?

"J" comes from French "jour" and means day.

I started as a zombie but suddenly someone used a potion on me, I became human again and got bitten by a vampire. I already had 342 bites made as a zombie but they seem to be gone.

Are there any time limits how long you can use the potions? Maybe potions should stop working 24 hours before the end of the game. Otherwise a user would only require an additional account and could kick out some other players while keeping himself in the game. This additional account would have to bite not more than 30 users to get 3 potions.
He/she would use one potion on himself/herself and get bitten by the additional account some 16 minutes before the end, so the transformation would end a minute or less before the end of the game which would be too late for most users to react. Less than 15 minutes before the end the additional account(s) could use their potions to eliminate other players. Even if these other players get bitten again, it would be too late to fully transform again and they would be out of the game no matter how many points they had so far.
