The requirement to have $7, $12 etc. in hand to get free buys is nontrivial, it's definitely not the same thing as T1 Champion for Buys.

Indeed the event was intended to give you free money eventually; otherwise I don't think there would be an incentive to build up enough to buy it more than a couple of times. It's a fair point that a base cost of $2 maybe reduces how interesting the decisions are. I'll change it so that the base is $3 instead, that way you're breaking even if you buy it thrice (but can be doing better if you have other sources of +buy).

I wanted to try making an Event with variable cost.



Original version had a base cost of $2

I bought the deluxe version, so I have played with Artifacts; it's good! I like it a lot more than Cities, which adds too many easy special achievements for my taste. Artifacts has some of the most crazy Innovation cards yet, and the way to get them (melding an older Age over a newer one) requires an interesting tradeoff.

The deluxe version also has nerfed some of the base cards like Industrialization and Calendar, which is nice.

I didn't see any changes to Calendar specifically.

Sorry, I confused it with Fermenting.

I just hope Donald X. resists the temptation to do a special kind of "super trash"/"banish" etc.

Jomini means “potions” by “pot”, in case anyone else was wondering.

Jomini thinks people reading this board will assume that "debt or pots" clearly refers to brownies because that, and only that, could possibly make any contextual sense with the rest of the sentence.

Capital + Wine Merchant

You can use the $2 you save to discard your WMs to pay off debt from Capital, essentially making WM a straight +$4 when you draw it with a Capital.

Awa moving to WCD then disappearing is pretty anti town.

It’s also feasible that one of the Europeans checks in before bed.

I'm here. I still like the fang wagon more than the chairs wagon but I'm more ambivalent about it after chairs trying to convince us that Eddie saying "kills" was a scumslip.

Oh, and somewhere Cube mentioned me posting less after he called me out, but it was the weekend, I had other reasons to not post as much.

That's fair.

I am concerned with this shakeup right before death day. A lot of people seem to be switching their vote while implying that changing it will be improbable.

Feels like the vote is being held hostage.

I similarly am not a fan of the Thief kill at this moment. I would actually prefer the chairs kill. Because almost nothing has been said regarding Thief we can’t pull as much information if he flips town, either. At least that’s my understanding.

It seems the that most of us will be around to move our votes before deadline, so it's not bad that we've got some activity today after a slow weekend.

Regarding Thief, the good thing is that he's been posting and interacting a lot, so I don't think we have to worry that his would be a low-information lynch.

- If town decides to go along with the fake claim for the time being, then not only are they treating the fake doctor as a kind of IC (I mean, the fake doctor can never be proved wrong by events, am I right?), but each town doctor then has to believe they are the only unclaimed doctor and kind of has to protect the fake doctor, thus totally wasting all town PR roles.

A fake doctor would be outed if both real doctors died. Also I don't see a particular reason why anyone "has to" believe anything. You've been trying to direct people a lot this game, actually.

Doctors can not protect each other.

One doctor can protect another, the protection only breaks if they both protect each other.

Are you suggesting that scum!chairs puts someone at L-1 at the start of day 1, and then his scum partner comes along and hammers? scum!chairs would be livid, surely. I don't think even a newbie scum player would hammer in that situation.
I mean, what would scum!chairs have to say at the start of day 2? "No, I don't think that hammer was suspicious. And no you shouldn't suspect the L-1 guy either."

PPE: 2

I think scum hammering in that situation would be pretty stupid, but town hammering there would be possibly even worse, so I don't think you can discount either situation.

Ultimately I think your reasoning boils down to "Awaclus did something scummy and chairs voted for him, so let's lynch chairs." If someone is going to get lynched based on Awaclus' play I would rather it be Awaclus.

will you vote chairs to avoid a no lynch?

I would.

My method of winning is to be average at the game. I usually end up being viewed as town so I don't get lynched. And I'm not the strongest players so scum usually don't night kill me. Which ends up in from my perspective being in a decent amount of 1v1s to win or lose the game.

This seems to have been written from scum!Hydrad's perspective, (i.e., that the goal of the game is to survive to the end). I'm curious about the opinion of the other vets: is the above an accurate statement or is Hydrad being self-deprecating?

I'll reread Hydrad in a bit since I realized that I haven't really scrutinized him much.

Hyper, can you spin out the why on Ava, Eddie, Chairs a bit more?

OK, my scumread on Eddie is mostly based on him playing in an anxious manner; he's been very concerned with self-preservation even at points where he didn't have many votes on him. Since I pointed this out, he hasn't been posting as much, which could be that he doesn't think he's able to replicate his town tone and is hoping to fly under the radar, or that he's resigned to his lynch.

I think LL's explanation of Eddie's claim of not-Doctor as being newb scum eager to claim VT is plausible. It's also slightly interesting that he claimed to not be a doctor instead of claiming to be a VT -- those aren't exactly the same thing.

Regarding Awaclus, I think the doctoring plan was bad because there's no need to restrict the doctors' choices when the odds of them colliding is so low. I gave some scumpoints to Hydrad, Awa, and LL for vocally supporting it. LL's subsequent responses seemed towny to me, but I didn't like Awaclus', especially this:

There are more people pushing this idea than there are scum, therefore pushing the idea is not suspicious.

which I still think is fallacious. He later explained that he was supporting the plan in hopes that the doctors wouldn't follow it but scum would think that they were, which was a plausible enough explanation that I dialed back my read on him from "very scummy" to "somewhat scummy".

Regarding chairs I don't think he's done anything particularly scummy. I think that putting Awaclus at L-1 was fine since we can trust town to not hammer before Awa responds. I don't really buy infang's theory that Awaclus is such a strong player relative to the other vets that chairs has been seeking to get him out of the game since his first post. Overall I would say that chairs has been playing fairly boldly, which I'm willing to treat as a town indicator for today.

so you're voting for Uncleeurope then

Certainly I would vote for Awaclus before chairs. Right now I think Uncleeurope is more likely to be scum than either.

Scum hammering in that situation would be pretty stupid, but town hammering there would be great (for scum!chairs). Remember, we are considering scum!chairs perspective here.

Right, I'm just saying that since it's obviously bad for town to hammer there it's unlikely for that to happen.
