Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Chaos

Spoiler:
I kind of suspected that the throwaway line in my PM that my catchphrase is "I'll be back" was referring to a possible resurrection power. On D3, I will be a double-voter.

Now this spoiler is probably making people paranoid. Oh well.

Re: Wams chaos game day 1

Vicarin is extremely active. I think the huge argument over gambits is more likely from a town on town place. Why? You think it is reasonable that Vic concluded that I am scum based on my gambit? I am at the very bottom of his scum list (and I'm sure he'd vote for me if he thought he could get supp...

Re multiple scum teams: the townie win condition makes this pretty likely, but there is still the possibility for one large team, as town would still be the only faction left.

Re: Wams chaos game day 1

My logic here is that town CANNOT win with a jester alive as I read the rules. Therefore the jester is an alternate faction as far as this game is concerned. It wouldn't surprise me if a jester winning ended the game with this setup. That fact may make it unfair for there to be a jester at all, so m...

Since he is threatening to out the mafia, the mafia has no reason to keep him alive. Therefore, Sabrar i...

Definitely a separate faction, whose exact nature was unclear. At that point I was pretty worried about cult, but other possibilities had not been ruled out.

My biggest win was after being recruited by the seat eaters in Harry Potter, but I do agree with your general sentiment. I'm getting down to very few possible targets for my action tonight as well.

I still think the flavor implies a third faction. If a Mafia member isn't a true traitor, then who is?
