Mafia Game Threads / Re: M31: Modern Community (Day 1!)

Thanks mail-mi, I was worried no one would pay attention to me this game, seeing as I'm new. Let me return the favor:


I'll also just throw out that I will abstain from lynching anyone who will "vote:wedge salad". Much obliged.

<meta>Also, since I have zero familiarity with Modern Family and Community, and only a brief description of my character, with that description, I'll be basing any flavor put into my character on Sheldon's mother from Big Bang Theory, with just a little more stress</meta>
Just so you know, you should bold your vote, else it is likely to not be counted.

Woah, that's just what I needed after this "flawless" loss in my first game. My faith in me being able to play Mafia is restored  :D

Cuttlebone - scum read, most likely partner: Box/Jdaki
*sigh* Look there! Look there!

Box, your quickhammer killed us :( Well, and maybe me voting for you D3, but... with this quickhammer, I couldn't think of anyone else to lynch.

Woah, that went fast. Box, if you're town, sorry, but you didn't leave me a choice.

I just want to state that I'm fine with ash's protection plan.

Part of me also wants to lynch mcmc right away, but having longer days is usually good for town, right? Also, in case mcmc isn't scum, he should at least have time to post his reads here, as they will be helpful tomorrow.

Vote: BoxOfDOG

Man, we should have lynched you a long time ago.

What I meant to say in the first line of course is we can't afford to vig D3.

So, now the real discussion with the doctors happens, should we vig tonight or not?  I think it's a good idea, but certainly think about the flip in who we should vig.
Thinking about this - if we vig tonight, there will be 5 of us left tomorrow. So we can't afford to lynch D3, because that could lead to a 1-1 situation.
If we don't vig, most likely there will be 6 left tomorrow, so we can safely vig D3 (worst case leads to 2-1).

So the takeaway is: we'll only be able to vig once. We should save it for when we have the most information. So I say, we vig the night before we enter MyLo, and not earlier.

Here are some thoughts on everyone. With the new information, my read list goes like this:

mcmc: super scummy for reasons already explained.

Robz: much lurking, no vote. The no vote is actually the bigger problem here. We needed to get almost all town votes in to lynch scum, so him not voting really hurt us. Scum read.

chairs: somewhat scummy for his latest lurking and being the only one on the mcmc wagon not to switch his vote to mail-mi.

ashersky: pretty null, when he hammered mail-mi it was already quite clear that we wouldn't gt a different lynch, so no town points for that.

Voltaire: somewhat townie because he put mail-i at L-1, when ashersky's hammer was to be expected. Also has been really active.

theorel: appeared townie D1, and started the mail-mi wagon.

sudgy: his vote change was where the mcmc wagon died and mail-mi was doomed. Lots of town points for that.

In fact, Vote: mcmcsalot.

What I found particularly interesting last day was that even though mail-mi and mcmc were the only wagons, they never voted for each other. Instead, both tried to build new cases. mcmc is still highly suspicious to me.

Also, we should probably talk about our doctor plans again. With our scum lynch D1, it's close to impossible for the mafia to control both doctors. I think we don't have to use the doctors as vig tonight and could instead do the clockwise-protection thing again. Extending the game should be more important now, as our chances to hit scum are pretty low.

Also sudgy, whom did you protect tonight, and why?

Would any of those not voting for jon be willing to hammer? If this is the case, please say so, but do not yet vote. jon should probably claim in this case if he is a PR.

I had some reservations about being in three mafia games at a time, but I don't want to miss this. So /in.

I don't know the shows.

This is L-1, so no more votes for jon!

I am not yet sure who to vote for.
Boxofdog does seam like a town, so i am probaby not vote for him.
Man, you just need to give us more than that. You're not helping at all.

Vote: jon. Still not my top scum read, but maybe he now has some incentive to be more active. Plus, the deadline's approaching, so I'll support this wagon.

What are we going to do if undecided by tomorrow?
Are we saying we should force a lynch by the deadline or simply everyone should have cast a vote by then?
I'd say we should look to put someone at L-1 until then, but not hammer. That way, there's time for a claim.

Gveoniz, jon, you need to vote for someone pretty soon, our soft deadline is only one day away...

Oh, and I might not be around until the soft deadline, because that would be 2 am in my time zone, and I like to sleep.

Okay, so I re-read what little there is to re-read from mail-mi. Pretty much the last thing he did was picking up something I said to build a case against Voltaire. That in itself seems rather scummy - buddying with me while at the same time pushing a case without having to make up reasons for it yourself. So this and the heavy lurking puts him above mcmc in my scum list. Also mcmc has now been reasonably active and I can see our disagreement being just that.

Vote: mail-mi. I still don't feel too good about mcmc, so I might put my vote there again if needed.

I disagree that "most plans play into the hands of Mafia."  That's hogwash.
What I wanted to say was that there hardly ever is any plan that brings the likelihood of lynching scum above 50%. I can see how that was unclear, though.

cuttlebone: perhaps defensive in his response to faust, but then it is valid to try to point out inaccuracies in others reasoning. I think it was perhaps a strange focus from faust on supposed lack of activity at certain times, when the inactivity seemed relatively random. Interesting point on his belief that Box's consistency was townie, whilst faust feels Box's change up is townie.

Just to make this clear, part of why I think Box's change is townie is because it came after Cuttlebone mentioning consistency.

Both your plan and your second plan of lets lynch "one of two people I choose at random" are terrible and beneficial for scum. You did not make a case on any of the people you suggest lynching, you also say that chairs and voltaire are not dangerous because they won't be doctors soon. You give two people who could very well be scum a pass because they won't be doctors soon??? You understand how incredibly ridiculous that seems.

Also the second example you gave does not garner you towncred with voltaire or theorel, infact if they are town they are less likely to support you(bad thing for scum to do) where as your original plan singled out for protection people which makes them likely to support you.

My second "plan" is just an example of how one usually plays mafia. theorel and Voltaire are just placeholders there (no offense), you may put your top two scum reads in for that. The whole point was showing that your analysis of whether a plan is good or not doesn't work. If that didn't come through, I'm sorry. I was in a rush when I posted. In fact, most plans, if they aren't really breaking strategy, play in the hands of Mafia the majority of the time - question is, how big is that majority? Remember playing Mafia without any sort of plan (i.e. just lynching a random player each day) is good for scum 80% of the time. Every plan resulting in a lower percentage is at least better than nothing.

I also have a feel that Box's latest post is rather townie. I mean, I could see it as scum trying out a new tone, but that would come really late now, after it has been stated several times that his consistence makes him somewhat less scummy, so why would scum do that now?

If I move Box donw on my scum list, Cuttlebone gets my next favorite lynch. His reaction to me calling him scummy was rather defensive, even though nobody even voted for him yet. Has a scum feel for me.

So Vote: Cuttlebone. I could also support a Jdaki lynch, and will change my vote before our soft deadline if it helps.
