I don't disagree on that. It certainly helps make the game a candidate for "game of the year".

ash, I know you're already putting a lot of work into this, but it would be cool for this if we could easily access the historical data for recent games... it's only updated to M57 or something.

If you need any support, just tell me. I'd be gald to help.

Well since there isn't a category for best fake claim category anymore I think I will just go ahead and say that if there were I would nominate ash/gkrieg for claiming masons. it might not have fooled the speccy, but it fooled the players in the thread and that is what counted in the end.

Definitely disagree. The whole thing was not thought through and was extremely high risk. It was sheer luck that it didn't backfire. Not an example I would show people and say "This is how you fakeclaim."

Well I wouldn't say sheer luck. It was crazy, and extremely high risk, and there were some elements that weren't greatly done. But there was some element of strategy to it. Keeping Awaclus from being lynched despite my persistent desire to do so had a lot to do with ash and gkrieg distracting me from that lynch. So I guess the claim might not have been great, but the way that they dealt with it afterwards was pretty awesome.

And in the end it worked. So... for me, that fits the bill of "best" more so than any other metric. A perfect fake claim that still isn't believed does nothing for the team trying to win the game.

I updated the new Mafia Records thread (now sticky'ed) through M70, but only in the games records section.  I also didn't check or fix anything, so the formatting isn't perfect.  Thanks to everyone who did the hard work for me.

To pull out individual stats is a much more labor intensive process for me.  I'll try to do that Wednesday.

I do need M71's game record done.

I think best fakeclaim would be to Faust and Liopoil for Dominion: Adventures Mafia.

This is my problem. If someone could tell me which games I wasn't in are worth reading that'd be nice. I've read a good deal of Fanfiction and that was interesting,but otherwise know nothing of the games I wasn't involved in.

I'm actually really glad to finally know the source of your sig.

Ash, btw, there are a couple of nominations in Lost, by SwitchedFromStarcraft.
I dont know whether they'll count, and I don't feel qualified to make them myself, but just so you know.

Well, all RMM except Lost, but I'm less interested in RMM than in normal games. For those :
M71 : Harry Potter Mafia
M70 : Switch Mafia 2
M68 : Fanfiction mafia (read the first two days and the very end)
M67 : Shakespeare Mafia 2
M63 : Dwarf Fortress Mafia
M61 : It's a Beautiful World Mafia
M60 : Kirby and the Amazing Mafia
M59 : Blink Mafia
M56 : Futuramafia! (I have a vague recollection of following that one, but very vague)

silverspawn was Mafia in that last one.

I'd like to nominate Yoshi's Island for Mafia setup of the Year. It probably won't win, but I thought it was really cool.

Just went through the thread and +1'ed all of ash's posts. He gets far too little credit for all the board moderating work because +1s are not allowed in other areas of the forum games.

EDIT: Edits are allowed too! I feel so powerful.

If memory serves me right, Futuramafia, Fanfiction, Switch and maybe Blink are probably the most interesting games out of those. I wasn't in Dwarf Fortress though and I didn't follow it either.

I think Buffy/Angel was also particularly interesting, not sure if it's interesting enough if you're not interested in RMM.

Thanks, will read those (well, I think I've got the interesting part of Fanfiction down so not that one), maybe Buffy/Angel though I'm a little wary of spoilers... I had started a marathon, stopped somewhere in season 4 of Buffy/season 1 of Angel, will take it back up at some point.

oh, you're right of course.

so, yeah ,that's a scenario where claiming benefits scum. But obviously it's marginal. I still think we should claim every day.

But we can discuss that tomorrow. Let's start scumhunting for now. vote: Awaclus

I haven't been scummy this game. Unlike a certain someone who was scum in Futuramafia.

maybe not, but you're annoying.

and how have I been scummy this game?

Like I said, because of Futuramafia.  :P

In all seriousness though, I think you're suspiciously active and overly towny compared to how you have been in previous games. It's not a strong scum tell, but it's something.

Blink mafia. Awaclus explaining a vote. Don't know his alignment yet, assume he was scum and hadn't yet... "perfected" his meta.

Back to RVS.

My vote is serious.

interesting. Just because of futurama?

Originally it was a joke vote, but like I explained here,

In all seriousness though, I think you're suspiciously active and overly towny compared to how you have been in previous games. It's not a strong scum tell, but it's something.

which is why it is now a serious vote, i.e. if we had to lynch someone right now, I would have a slight preference towards silverspawn over other people.

Twice !

Aaaand he was town ! And was NKed, ie a pretty good performance. See Awaclus, I've just liberated you from your curse !

ahha time to create like 50 alt accounts and get greatest player in the world!

also I'm excited for the stats to be updated. One thing I found out is I have a pretty decent winrate somehow even though I don't feel like I affect the games at all. guess I'm just lucky!

anyways good luck to everyone!

For anyone else, such a statement would be a scum tell.  For Hydrad, it's simply a tell that you're reading something from Hydrad.
