Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Newbie New Year: I'll be very happy if my D1 reads were accurate on 2 out of 3, at least. Certainly, everything is pointing in that direction from what I've read recently. I completely accept that I look bad because of the way I interacted with PW throughout D1, unfortunately, so wouldn'...

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - D2

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - D2

Concerning my top 3 scum list, and what I meant by lynching any of them now, that wasn't intended to mean, let's vote and hammer them quickly, but rather, without looking further at D1 content, this is where my focus will be. Also, I figured if I could get my pool small enough, I could make a case f...

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - D2

Here's where my thoughts are a bit more: 1) I don't think scum are likely to be playing a long-term gambit of last-minute lynching one of their own instead of a townie in return for super town cred. Therefore, there was scum on PW's wagon iff flicky is scum (potentially just flicky). 2) scum!LaserGu...

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - D2

Completely agree that if flicky is town, then everybody else on PW's wagon is almost certainly town too, so that's BoomFrog, Sabrar, Hari, and somitomi (who as pointed out is confirmed town at this point). The case is much less clear cut if flicky is scum, but I do believe him to be town, as stated ...

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - D1

I don't want to lynch anybody who hasn't claimed. I don't have a scum read on PW, and so I fear lynching a PR. I'd actually prefer lynching someone who might be vanilla, or scum, although I don't think flicky is scum either.

flicky is a mislynch. There is a very simple idea behind this and it surprises me that the more experienced players don't see it.

I believe flicky's claim, tentatively. The way it was expressed shows that he was aware enough to claim PR, had he wanted to, although I still feel he needs to pick up content. I see no reason to disbelieve somitomi's claim either, given the lack of counter-analysis. I won't oppose a Madge lynch, si...
