I would love Camel Up for my flavor. Or maybe Coup.

I love Camel Up!

MiX, I see you stealing our great games ideas...

Camel up is amazing, we played it first back when we were super sleep deprived (and at a German immersion camp).  The context hightened the experience, but it still held up 6 months later when we were on a kiddless vacation

I want to add another game! Clash of steel! In the card game Clash of Steel, the 2 players are knights trying to kill each other. They bring various weapons that are good at certain ranges and counter each other (I.E. Axe is really good at Step range but loses to sword). The players also bid stamina, trying to barely outbid the foe to win whilst not wasting valuable energy. It's very fun and one of the finest chess variants/fighting games i've ever played.

We kind of already discussed the last couple questions over Skype and Uncleeurope just doesn't remember I think.

No lynch is reached when half the players vote No Lynch, which you can do. Ties in the OP as you noticed.

Jester does win if lynched by plurality, that was actually part of the reason we wanted plurality in the first place. Supersaint hits the last player actually on the wagon when the lynch happens (deadline if no one has a majority, or the player that hammers, that pushes it over into being a majority lynch.)

I don't think we ever actually talked about no one voting for a whole day, but I'd say that's a No Lynch, but it's actually kind of hilarious to use the current Rules as Written with the last player to have won a board game, so lets do that. (It's pretty much theorycrafting anyway, if it were for some reason important scum could always just vote and unvote and break the tie.)

Well, those rules do give town the ability to get rid of the Jester without triggering the supersaint ability: everyone agrees not to vote for the day, Jester plays a game of Dominion online against the bot an hour before deadline, Jester get lynched and wins with no death. It's arguable whether that plan is pro-town but I'd lean toward saying that it is in at least some situations (it's certain there's a Jester and it's not Lylo).

Also does the Jester's inability to self-hammer also apply if they have the last vote on themselves in a plurality lynch? The wording seems to suggest that's the case but I wanted to make sure.

Sorry if this is a lot of nitpicky questions, I just want to make sure there isn't a way to game the Jester situation before the game starts, not after.

It's a very risky plan for town, since scum can just vote for whoever they want a few seconds before deadline and get a free mislynch in. Though they might give themselves away if they do.

I mean, if that plan is in effect and someone intentionally screws it up, they're pretty much obvscum.

I am, like, 99% sure we are going to call 0 votes a no lynch.

Camel Up, Bottoms Up.  I'm in.

But not into this mafia game yet...it's like all setup.  As somebody who barely tracks votecount that will not work out well for me.

I've got a new edition of acquire, which has much better stocks/money, but a much sadder board
