Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Day 1)

Gods, I hate D1.

Uhhhh. shall I hammer? I have nothing against a jimbob lynch, his content has been pretty townie-feeling.

For the firs time in a while, I don't have to worry about night actions or night chat! (I'm not mafia for once, and my only "power" is miller).

Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Day 1)

Well, with the goal change of wanting your own team dead, I'm pretty sure most "standard" power roles will be pretty counter productive. I really don't see much downside in claiming my role. I'm a miller, and will appear as mafia if investigated by a cop (if we have one). Although my prese...

Correct about me on weekends. It's monday now though, so here I am!

I'm still not sure how power roles effect the lynch order, seems lynching members of your own team is most important, beginning with the most vanilla.
