For me, it's just been a matter of time for a while. That said, if/when faust drops the signup for BSG 3 I'm definitely jumping back in!

There's also the chance that there's less interest for some in having to learn a new platform after QT went down.

Oh, and an upvote is the little arrow pointing up at the top right of each comment/post. If you like the comment, it was the correct answer, was particularly helpful, funny, or whatever reason you come up with, you can click that arrow, and the "Respect" counter on the person's profile will increment. It's basically just a superficial indicator of how active or helpful a person is on a particular forum.

Rules Questions / Re: Throne Room played multiple times
« on: February 24, 2022, 06:25:45 pm »
I'm really new to this forum, what is an upvote? Also, I showed your message to my grandson (a 13-year-old "genius") and he refused to accept it, just kept trying to argue his point. Guess my house rules will say no one can have more than 2 Throne Rooms.

Sorry, I was replying directly to Awaclus, not to your post. But to your followup, perhaps if your grandson won't accept one online stranger's opinion, perhaps showing him the official wiki might help.

http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Throne_Room

In particular the lines, "If you Throne Room a Throne Room, you may play an Action card twice, then may play another Action card twice; you do not play one Action card four times." as well as, "Throne Room plays a card twice; it does not double the effects of a card. It is possible that the card played by Throne Room does different things each time it's played."

Rules Questions / Re: Throne Room played multiple times
« on: February 24, 2022, 06:03:39 pm »
It isn't. Playing a card twice doesn't mean "play a card once, multiplying all the numbers in it by two"; it means "play a card, following its instructions from top to bottom exactly as they are written on the card, and then do this a second time". Therefore, if you Throne Room a Throne Room, you can play a card from your hand twice, then you can play another card from your hand twice. If one of those cards is yet another Throne Room, that one also plays two more cards from your hand twice, and so on.

So in this example, your grandson would draw a total of 8 cards, get a total of +2 buys, you would draw a total of 2 cards, and he would then get to play up to three more Actions from his hand twice.

Had to upvote this for two reasons. 1) It is correct. 2) Your respect is now an awesome palindrome.

Of the current wagons, I've got a pretty strong preference to exile e, (swowl would be here if there was a wagon), Didds next, and then MiX rather than mathdude, but MiX is null and I'm leaning slightly townie on mathdude, so I'd rather not exile either of them today.

Also @Dylan, e has posted a bunch more since #91, when you voted him. What have you thought of those posts?

Not as scummy as the early posts, but not so towny that it moves the needle back to null.

I would be willing to vote for Swowl. Just ISO'd, and 15 posts are either entirely or mainly questions compared to only 9 posts that are purely observations, votes, or answers without an associated question, and a third of those were like "+1 good catch," "vote: somebody," and "disregard. obv it is." Could be wrong, but my memory of swowl is that there's more direct engagement and discussion than interrogation in their playstyle, so this feels scummy for them.

tl;dr - Yes, I am scum too often and you probably default to reading me as scum, because most people are town somewhat close to a ratio that you would expect, so their default meta is their town game and differences from that are scummy. For the last two years, what you've seen as my default is pretty much my scum meta.

Actually, I hadn't put the last two games in my signature yet, which was a town loss and a scum win. Updated now. M136 = town loss and RMM60 = scum win.

I'm still voting e for the same reasons I was before. I haven't seen anyone that has risen to the same level of scummy to me than him.

Not useful case for why I'm town:
A) I play better as scum, and I clearly haven't posted enough to be considered to have played well this game. Check win-loss record in signature for evidence of this difference.
2) I generally try to make stronger cases more aggressively as scum than I do as town, because I feel more confident pushing lies or false narratives as scum than pushing cases or narratives that I'm more likely statistically to be wrong about than right about.
D) Pretty sure faust reads me wrong when I'm town way more than he reads me correctly, going way back. Never made a big deal about it, but I literally don't remember him ever really pushing me for an extended period of time when I've been scum, but it happens pretty much every game I'm town in.
42) I'm the easy path of least resistance exile that will give town the least information if you flip me today. This doesn't really speak to being town, but I can confidently say I've never intentionally lurked to avoid giving information as scum and I don't plan on it. (Let the WIFOM abound now that I've said it)

Weird post. If I'm to believe your self-meta, then you cannot post this as scum. I'm kinda believing right now, but it seems so non-Dylan that I can't help but want to kill you for it. Are you just scum way too often, such that my default of you is scum!Dylan?

Also, cool enumeration system.

In reverse chronological order (most recent to oldest), I was: 3rd party, scum, town, scum, town. That last game thread was posted in November of 2020, so I think that's far enough back to encompass anything that would be considered "recent."

Dylan has posted but refused to answer this question:

I think faust is town. I have a very specific reason for thinking it that is a sort of tell that I have been slowly becoming more convinced about over time (that probably wouldn't be extremely persuasive to anybody else until I go back and get the receipts), but I don't want to give it away just for a D1 early read.
At which point would you be willing to give it away?
Is it an important question?
I wouldn't ask it if I didn't think it important.

It's less I refused to answer, and more that I just missed the fact you asked after I had told Didds I wasn't going to elaborate. As to when, I would prefer not to give it away until such time as I catch scum!you with it or I need to explain it to prevent misexiling town!you. You are not currently under any sort of pressure or risk of being exiled, and I do not think you are scum, so I don't feel any need to give more detail on it.

Also, I have now skim-read some of your town games (Conference Call, Memento, Wizard of Oz, Groundhog Day) and it is interesting... but I won't share yet what I think on that.
You were scum in Among Us and Dwarfs, and you were also in Battlestar Galactica I and II. Anything I've missed, or any of those I should particularly read do you think?

PPE 1

That sounds like a fairly comprehensive list. I don't track what I've all been in, what roles I had, or my win rate. But that list looks good.

The more recent games would be more relevant. Earlier games I was trying to learn f.ds meta and for in. More recently, I'm realizing "what's the point... play the game the way I feel comfortable"

I don't have a problem with the format of your reads list, or you saying that you think MiX and e are not both scum. That is all fine in my view (though you need to be prepared for people to ask "why" you think that).

When I said "I disagree with pretty much everything", those were things that were not included! It was everything else!

Okay, then it would probably be helpful for you to explain exactly what you disagree with.

Definitely this. I thought that was the main concern from people. But if there's other things you want addressed, either bring them up specifically, or expect your "I disagree with everything else" to get ignored.

Yeah, being the D1 exile in your first several games probably helped form the "What's the point?" attitude lol. Sorry again.

Mathdude is town :p

More people should be voting for Dylan by the way. Don't worry, I was assured that doing that takes very little effort.

I agree. Its not like hes around to question it.

Vote: Dylan

I would be really offended by this if I had had time to post more than the two times I have over the last few days. Unfortunately, I haven't, even though I have been mostly keeping up.

Ah, PPEd myself capping on Dylan. But still, I think we need more.

Dylan, can you elaborate about faust. Or anything else you see going on?

If faust wants to insist that he's right about e's wagon being stale, his vote on me was only 14 posts after the last vote for e, so his opinion is pretty stale too and he might as well move on. What's that faust, it's a good fresh read you say? Ok, then I still like the e wagon too. Outside of that, no I won't elaborate on faust, and scum points for prying when I specifically said I wouldn't right now.

Outside of that, I haven't had a lot that stuck out as alignment indicative. There's been a lot of meta argument about posting reads (why do we have some version of this convo every game? This is like the worst part of our meta here) and a lot of "What do you think about *x person here*?" before anybody really did much of anything. I went through yesterday and tried ISOing like 7 people, and I got a bunch of nothingburger. Posts for the sake of posting rather than anything of substance. I don't like creating filler posts, so I haven't said much, even though I am keeping up.

e, what do you think about the wagon on you?

faust, what do you think about the wagon on e?

Dylan, what do you think about faust?

Didds, what do you think about MiX's case on you?

How is everyone enjoying being an egg? Do you find it constricting, or freeing?

I think faust is town.

What do people think of Didds this game?

Not quite clever or funny, but a good egg!

Fact-checkers found this post to be mostly false, as it is both clever and mildly funny, thus rendering the statement incorrect.

Blah blah first post - a long time since last game - missed y'all - etc.

Galzria is town.
I never get the purpose of these posts. Except to boast about how you were right later, I suppose.

It's an incredibly short readslist that has my most confident reads in it. I don't see the problem.

I have to admit, I chuckled at that. Despite the humor, I actually am actually leaning scum on MiX, but that's not my strongest read.

All these MiX votes. Did he do something recently that I should know about?

Or just MiX being MiX

Of the " 'RVS' pile on MiX " crew I find gkrieg the most scummy. Or is that just leftover bias from a long forgotten game?

Vote: gkrieg

These both after only 2 votes on MiX from faust and gkrieg. It seems more like seeing a wagon starting to build on a partner and trying to move momentum early enough to stop it rather than a townie reaction to a couple RVS votes.

Vote: e

Haven't reach the whole thing yet, bit if you give the mod role permission to see something, everyone who has modded a game will be able to see it. You want to create private channels and add yourself and the desired people manually, not by roles.

Yeah, I covered this. You don't seem to be able to add members while creating the channel; you have to create it first and then add the members and remove the roles.

That's what I get for trying to read at work lol

I feel like it has been so long for a lot of the currently sitting games that they should be considered out of the queue until the mods post here and say they are reopen. There are a lot of games posted that the mods aren't ready to run/aren't planning on running anymore while there are several people that have said they are willing to run one right now that isn't in the queue and are just waiting for movement on those other games, myself included. Just my two cents.

For whoever is next, if you want to try modding using discord, I can give you the mod role where you can set up your channels on the server I set up. If I need to play I will look into handing off ownership to JReggie if he's still up for doing that for us, otherwise I have another friend who's experienced with admin-ing discords, and I'd trust him to just sit and own it and manage roles according to whatever we need.
