Re: Best Idea Mafia - Day 1 - Straitjacket Love

I no longer believe this discussion is useful to the game but it's interesting I agree. Look at it this way: if a player discards one of their two roles at random, then the chance they discarded any given card is exactly the same as if they discarded whichever card they were dealt first. So let's a...

Re: Best Idea Mafia - Day 1 - Straitjacket Love

This time, I had a role whose utility I understood and would be able to use, and a role that I judged to be pretty close to useless — to get any information at all, the Coroner has to guess who is going to be killed that night. Which means I might have received one or two results at all over the co...

Re: Best Idea Mafia - Day 1 - Straitjacket Love

A little analysis on the roles: There was only one card each for Area 51 Detective, One-Shot Town Day Vigilante, Area 51 Immunologist, and Mason Reflexive Doctor. These have been discarded and so are definitely not in the game. There are several roles which have very limited powers: Vanilla Townie, ...

Not a lot of time here: In the first deal, I received two scum roles (a chameleon goo and a mafia traitor cop).

He either got two scum and discarded one or got town and mafia and discarded mafia, 8 out of 9 times the latter happened, this doesn't need Bayesian analysis, and that's flawed.

the former has basically 89% chance of being town, which is quite high. Not even close. If we knew nothing about what he was dealt, then it would be 11% chance he was dealt two scum. Now that we know he discarded Mafia Goon, we have to update the probabilities. Figuring out the actual probability w...

Scum cop = scum goon because they already know everyone's alignment. Not entirely true. A scum cop could use their cop power in an attempt to confuse trackers/watchers.
