ADK-I don't really understand why everybody is saying he's scum. Is there something I missed? So far, I've got a townie read.

Why do you think ADK is town?

Here's a short summary of why ADK is scummy:

1. Process of elimination - I know that myself and IG are town. I am very confident Nik and WW are town. That leaves me with faust, shraeye, and ADK. They all have a 67% chance of being scum in my eyes by default.
2. The way he attacks other players (pointed out by DD, who died)*
3. ADK looks very scummy when you consider how shraeye, another scummy player, has interacted with or commented about him. See my post about shraeye shrugging off my suggestion of lynching ADK instead of mcmc.

*here's the post

What I think is more surprising is that ADK, throughout this entire game, keeps only attacking people while defending people. This seems like a good ploy for scum too. He is able to defend a player, say "no they're not being scummy!" While flipping it around and attacking the person who is was attacking first. It allows hi to seem good to the town, while not being too aggressive, and he still gets to create confusion and mislynch.

I brought up his meta history. He shows another game he has played and said he's now just paranoid, but I don't think that really follows. If he was really paranoid of early mislynch es, he wouldn't be making these obviously faulty cases against people (like accusing Ichimaru gin of being too generic when he attacked me, accusing me of making a conspiracy (and them realizing he didn't read carefully enough and attacking Ichimaru gin), and now he's protecting MCMC and switching his vote to a very unstable case against Voltaire.)

I think he's very scummy, maybe even more than MCMC.

vote: ADK

It is entirely possible that faust/shraeye could be the scum team, which is why I want to hear more from ADK.
Alright, I'm going to Unvote. I'm still not sure about you, Volitare, but for now, you're less scummy.
Now, it's really between Faust, ADK, and Shraeye.
I'm also not really sure about you three. Faust is lurking, ADK, after reading the quote you see up there, seems scummy, and Shraeye is null. Could at least one of you post? (Yes, I know Shraeye just posted, all he said was that he won't be able to post.)

Nik, I really need you to re-read, because I think you're town.

If you're talking about me re-voting for you:
I think it is a bit scummy to be happy about a VT death. I might change my mind if you defended yourself, but so far, you haven't.
Also, I have re-read.

Here are my opinions on people so far:
Nik-Town, obviously
WW-Town
Ichi-Since no one has counter claimed, Town.
ADK-I don't really understand why everybody is saying he's scum. Is there something I missed? So far, I've got a townie read.
Shraeye-Null
Faust-Null
Volitare-Personally, I still find him scum.
So actaully, I'm going back to my original vote. Vote:Volitare.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Donald announces new expansion!
« on: April 03, 2014, 07:49:46 am »
Wait wait wait, let me check if I got it right the first time: you are working on an expansion of a game that you aren't close to publishing yet, and you've already decided that the name of the expansion would be Dominion, and you tell this here the other way around? In what universe is that not cruel? THE FEELS!  :'(

The name of the expansion is not "Dominion". At least not based on what he said here. I'm not sure where the confusion lies. He's simply working on an expansion for a game; nothing that has anything to do with Dominion in name or in game.

How do you explain the "Oh Dominion" in "I have actually been working on a new expansion. Oh Dominion. No, not a Dominion expansion."?

Short for, "Oh, you wanted a Dominion expansion, not just any old expansion. No, I am not working on a Dominion expansion."
BUT WHY NOT??

Sweet, VT death. Off to re-read now that we have another flip. Cool cool cool cool cool. I actually feel good about this.
That's not scummy?

I'd like to hear you explain why it is.
He feels good about a VT dying.

Nik is 100% obviously town. We are absolutely not lynching him.

This is a bad/incorrect/wrong line of reasoning, but it is one that only town thinks (especially new town).
If this is really an incorrect line of reasoning, then I'll just Unvote for now.

But don't you know whether or not it's an incorrect line of reasoning?  And you vote Voltaire, then Voltaire tells you that your reasoning is wrong, so you automatically unvote? 

I'd like to hear some more explanation.
Um...I didn't want people to think I was scum, but now I realize that was a big mistake.
I'm still going to keep my Unvote, since Volitare is looking less scummy.

Non-Mafia Game Threads / Re: The Resistance

There's currently a Resistance game plugging along slowly but surely. It'd probably be best if you don't start this until that's finished.
Oh, sorry. I'll wait then. You can still /in if you want.
Oops, you were going to post the rules... you can delete my posts if you want so you can take the second post.
No, it's fine.

Non-Mafia Game Threads / The Resistance
« on: April 02, 2014, 07:54:21 am »
(Shamelessly taken from BGG):

The Empire must fall. Our mission must succeed. By destroying their key bases, we will shatter Imperial strength and liberate our people. Yet spies have infiltrated our ranks, ready for sabotage. We must unmask them. In five nights we reshape destiny or die trying. We are the Resistance!

The Resistance is a party game of social deduction. It is designed for five to ten players, lasts about 30 minutes, and has no player elimination. The Resistance is inspired by Mafia/Werewolf, yet it is unique in its core mechanics, which increase the resources for informed decisions, intensify player interaction, and eliminate player elimination.

Players are either Resistance Operatives or Imperial Spies. For three to five rounds, they must depend on each other to carry out missions against the Empire. At the same time, they must try to deduce the other players’ identities and gain their trust. Each round begins with discussion. When ready, the Leader entrusts sets of Plans to a certain number of players (possibly including himself/herself). Everyone votes on whether or not to approve the assignment. Once an assignment passes, the chosen players secretly decide to Support or Sabotage the mission. Based on the results, the mission succeeds (Resistance win) or fails (Empire win). When a team wins three missions, they have won the game.

Playing:
1. Jimmmm
2. Tables
3. Luser
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
(I would like at least 7 people playing.)
Look to the next thread for the rules:

You really think he's saying that he's scum and he's happy there was a mislynch?
Well, he said he 'feels good about it.'

Voltaire is still my strongest suspect here. This all definitely warrants a reread, but I don't like the way he only started pushing hard on the mc wagon after there were several people voting on it.

Nik's out the gate vote for shraeye seems a little suspect as well, but that might just be a newbie mistake. He was also the lurkiest newbie on day on so maybe there's something there.

I'm inclined to believe shraeye is town, I'm much more suspicious of people who jumped on the wagon after it got going (Voltaire's the big one, possibly also faust and nik)

PPE: 2

Sorry, I thought that since Shraeye was arguing with Mcmcsalot, he was scum; but now I'm unsure.
But Volitare's behavior is a bit scummy. So for now, I'll Unvote. Vote:Volitare.

Rules Questions / About Bridge/Princess/Highway/Quarry...
« on: March 31, 2014, 08:12:52 am »
I don't understand why these 4 similar cards cost $4 or more, when they are just silver or less. Aren't Bridge and Princess Woodcutters? Isn't Highway '+1 card +1 action +1'? And isn't Quarry Gold-for-Actions? Sure, they might give a little boost with Swindler and Workshop, but otherwise I find them weak at their prices. Am I wrong?

Funny. I was going to make a similar remark about you.

Well anyway, sorry for not being too active over the weekend. Note also that I'm in a different timezone than most players here, which makes participating harder. As to my posts having little content, can you give an example?
Looking back through the thread, you're right, I still think you're lurking; but your posts do have content, though they are short.
But I've un voted anyway...

In that case I will unvote

The way Ichi goes back and forth with putting mcmc at L-1 is most interesting.

Umm...I'm sorry, what does L-1 mean? Also, what does Ichi have to do with me unvoting?
Ahh, sorry! I thought you wre talking about my unvoting (I'd said the same thing)

I have tons of questions:
How do you come up with cards? You have said that you always think fan cards are unbalanced or boring, but have you seen any that are good? How has the Dominion community (not DominionStrategy in particular) contributed to Dominion? How do you come up with card names. And finally, what was with that blue dog comment? It sure didn't make any sense to me...
