Anything from the rules make you think that or just basically an educated/experience guess?

Baseless assumption tbh

Lol fair. Just wanted to be clear.

Is there any reason we'd expect tracking to work here? If the mafia can just lie, making a plan doesn't really help anyone, right?


This was pretty much my thinking before the game started.

Got to ask people more familiar with Condude if this seems normal town Condude. I ask specifically because from the very little I've seen of him (and I really count last game for less because I was scum there so didn't really have to solve him), he strikes me as someone who is more likely than someone like me to be bold and somewhat controversial or something to open things up. If that makes any sense. Like the way he went after Don for just seeming to be too wishy washy or fluffy to start that last game. Maybe he does that because in his mind it's more townie and he's more likely as town to really go out on a limb. And the way he was very argumentative about some mechanics stuff in that game.

But anyway, his thoughts here were pretty much the way I was thinking of approaching the challenges in general. Like even down to asking if anyone else had any problems with it that he hadn't considered before. If I'd made it to thread before Condude I'd have said the same thing more or less.

Were you assuming that some kind of tracking thing would work? How did you think that might be a thing here? There wasn't really anything that made me think that in the rules. But I know you tend to see things mechanically in ways I usually don't immediately.


Alright, so, me. I play to my victory condition and to have fun. What I don't do is do things just because it's assumed that it's "good for the town". If I have a plan I sincerely think is good for the town and I have a way of forcing it through, I'll do it. See my stance on vigs (fire away, fire away), or shooting a non-Nanook target last game. I think I'm at least half decent on mechanics, and love coming up with creative solutions with the information I have. I also thrive in chaotic situations and do worse in orderly games. I often take a TON of pressure in the early game, which either results in me getting no votes later or getting lynched D1, depending on how well I weather the storm. This occurs as either alignment.

Currently, my reads in the early game suck big time. I'm focusing on being more open (I get tunneled easily, always have) and reading people without one scum flipped. Generally after one flip I'm not bad at all at finding associations.

I went into this game assuming that votes would be public knowledge and that the town would set up a tracking scheme. I wasn't sure whether I'd support, oppose, or unilaterally veto the proposal. It would have depended on what that proposal was. I just notice that this line of thinking was irrelevant, considering that we can't set up a scheme of any sort.

Lol oh yea.

UFO because we promised this to each other.

Thanks for the reply Condude. I'll take this stuff into consideration on reading you. And if anyone has any different opinions on what you've said, well then that's interesting too. Appreciate the response on how you see yourself.

I recruited one of my sisters for unethical science experiments involving modeling the Marshmallow Carrying Capacity of a Mouth. The compensation was a large number of marshmallows.

It's all for science, so all is forgiven. Thank you for your noble work, good sir.

I expect a Nature paper out of this and to be in the acknowledgments.
