Not a lot of chatter today. I think everyone has checked in except Morgrim. Sooo, what's new? Oh, and for the record, Robz is much to crafty. Don't listen to anything he says. He's the spy.

I feel like I've posted more than my fair share so far.  ;)  Is it quiet because of the long weekend?  I'm Canadian so I got my long weekend last week.

Mostly I'm just waiting for clarification from Tables right now.

Same. I think I've got enough of an understanding about what I'm supposed to do... Once I'm 100% clear on how to do it. :)

And the long weekend might be the culprit. Not too sure really.

So, uh, TINAS is the mafia! (Oops, wrong game.) TINAS is a spy! There we go.

A real Spy would never say this, so I think you're clear.

Unless that's what you want me to think.  :o



Although waiting on Tables' clarification, maybe we can proceed on the assumption that, for the purpose of simultaneous reveal, we should PM him our votes on the team proposal.  I'll go do that now.

5. Please bold and double hashtag ## all requests to the Mod so that they don’t get missed. This includes all final actions (giving out plot cards, proposing a team, public vote if you have Opinion Maker).

Re-read a bit more carefully and noticed this line.  Since it specifically mentions "public vote if you have Opinion Maker", the implication is that regular votes are private.  :)

from experience*

(## Are we allowed to edit posts in this game?)

Apologies for the delay. Board Games weekend at Uni and other things mean not online much. Please do not edit posts in this game. If you must, make a correction post to clarify what you mean. If you let something slip or word something in a bad way and post, tough.

An important rule that I don't think was mentioned above: if team proposal fails FIVE times in a row, the spies automatically win.  This makes cards like No Confidence extremely powerful, so be careful with the power you now wield, Galzria.

This rule is correct. The resistance MUST choose a team by the 5th proposal each round, or the resistance fails from the lack of leadership

Also didn't quote the question, but Yes, PM votes to me.

As there were outstanding questions regarding voting, voting will close 48 hours from the above post, that is, 0:31 GMT on 29th May (Monday night/Tuesday morning).

For the record, everyone here is more likely to be a spy than me. Unless they're not. Then TINAS is. Except for when it's Robz. Although it might be Morgrim. But only if eHalcyon is his partner. And once you understand that, you'll know WoG can't be trusted.

I'm ready to vote.

## Tables, can you also clarify this?

I was also wondering how free we are to discuss what we intend to vote.  I'm still quite new to the game and Opinion Maker doesn't seem to be particularly significant to me because we can also discuss anyways, can't we?  Granted, our pre-vote talk isn't binding, but it would be rather damning if someone said one thing and then voted the other way.

For clarity, my question is:

## Can we make public what we intend to vote, even when we don't have Opinion Maker?

Tables, is there some way you would like us to note this? For instance, maybe this convention would help:

Vote 1.1 -- Robz88: Against

If I understand correctly the votes for/against approving the team will be publicly revealed by you?

Your discussion about votes is pretty free, yes. Obviously you can claim to vote one way in the thread, and vote another in private, just as you could sit at the table with a no card ready and claim you want the mission to go ahead.

As long as your vote in the PM is clear, I don't really care about the format. I'm transferring it to a spreadsheet which just has yes/no's anyway. It WOULD be helpful if you said the mission number, as then I don't need to double check the thread to make sure it wasn't a vote from the previous mission or something else silly (if missions get proposed very quickly one after the other this could happen, otherwise it shouldn't matter), but it's not a rule. The format for votes when I post them should be very transparent.

-Sigh-. If I defend myself I will become a suspect. If I do not, I become a suspect. Personally, I think WoG is a spy.

I would suggest specifying in the PM the specific team members that are being proposed, since there can be multiple proposals for a given round.  Unless we have a format for mission number, like (round).(proposal) as proposed by Robz888?

Hey guys if you just say I'm a spy I will take all of the flack and then somehow get away with it anyway and then turn out to be the best damn guy ever and win it for everyone (apart from the baddies). So yeah, do that.

My choices here were pretty much chosen randomly, as the first leader I have absolutely no information to go on (except I chose myself because I know that I'm resistance). However the first mission is pretty safe if the leader chooses himself. We have the following possibilities
Spy,Spy= Probable fail in the mission but probable win in the game
Spy,Resistance (leader Spy)= The spy pretty much has to pass the mission or else he'll spend the rest of the game unmasked
Spy,Resistance (leader Resistance)=Highest probability of failure but the spy can cast suspicion on the leader
Resistance,Resistance=Pass
So the first mission should usually succeed regardless of who chooses it. Even if we are forced into accepting a spy's proposal on vote 4.
