Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Unlikely Superheroes: Hi Gojoe! Sorry for not posting earlier. I'm The Decider, town. I make decisions, which translates into a one shot prevent anybody voting for a player (not me) for a Day, and force votes to only be on two players (my choice, not me) for a Day. My plan is pro...

Re: Unlikely Superheroes (Day 1)

Vote Vicarin

Won't oppose a BoomFrog or SJ lunch, as I think both have issues, but I probably won't actively support either.

Re: Unlikely Superheroes (Day 1)

So apparently I misremembered when the deadline is, and I'm unlikely to have time to do any more reads before it (I thought we had another day still). Without looking at anything in detail, I have gut town reads on moody, and Sabrar, and gut scum read on BoomFrog, though I fully acknowledge that tha...

4-1 sounds too scum-favoured, because it only requires one correct lynch for town to lose. 3-1-1 is possible I guess. At the same time, town only needs to reveal the one mafia to win, since I'm guessing the mafia can't self-target with a kill. What would a doctor gain by using their ability? Well, ...

You could have everybody submit 3 rules suggestions and select one random one from each player to form the base list to draw from too. That way a player is unable to guarantee how things will work immediately and so on.
