Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Reversi: Yeah, small games don't work as well as somewhat larger games. I think the concept though is not a bad one, and would have worked well with more players. I realised quickly that I was probably the biggest threat to town's victory, and needed to get myself killed. With two forced doc...

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

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.
