Calling Cards: Day 4

Postby bluebambue » Fri Oct 04, 2013 3:44 pm UTC

Image
You are Victorian Lady who is trying to climb the social ladder. In order to do so, you want to collect as many calling cards from the other ladies as possible. Each Lady has the following people she cares about:
-One true friend (this is a symmetrical relationship)
-One friend who is trying to back-stab them
-One nemesis who they hate (but their nemesis think they're friends)
The ladies do not know which of their friends is true and which is the backstabber.

There are 4 days (rounds). On the first two days you must visit (give your card to) exactly 2 other ladies. On the last two days you must visit exactly 4 others.

You may talk at any time and as much as you want by going
@Lady's Name
Spoiler:
Are you my true friend?
Spoilers may not be addressed to more than one lady. You may not read any spoiler not addressed to you.

Submit your moves by going
@bluebambue
Spoiler:
Visit: Emma and Bessie

Visits are made public at the end of each day.

Points at the end are as follows:
How many cards you have * 1
How many cards your true friend has * 0.5
How many cards your nemesis has * -0.5

Players
1. Adam H
2. dudiobugtron
3. Vytron
4. Tormod
5. Snark
6. (orangedragonfire)

I'm quite happy to be the person dropped out if sign-ups ends with an odd number of people.

Just to quickly check - do we get points for collecting cards from other ladies, or giving our cards to other ladies?

I can join if you need another person to make the total number of players even. (which I think you needed for this game?)

Okay, that's enough people.

I'm going to leave signups open until Monday morning is case there's anyone who would be really excited about playing and just hasn't checked the forums over the weekend.

I have sent out PMs with your people of interest. Let me know if you didn't receive one.
Day 1 has started.
Deadline in about a week or when everyone has submitted and locked their visits.

Emma: Isn't it a lovely day out?
Nellie: It certainly is. I fear that our day may be filled with listening to nasty gossip.
Emma: Oh dear. Whyever so?
Nellie: I hear the Duchess of Pinishire is throwing a ball next month and she only ever invites one or two of the small town ladies.

We can't give both cards to one person in one day, right?

My first two cards will go to random people. My cards on other days will be given to people who give cards to me.

@Spectators:
Spoiler:
Logic time!

In Day 4, your best move is to give a card to everyone but your nemesis. This is strictly better than any other choice. No one can hold this against you later in the game because Day 4 is the last day.
Therefore in Day 3, the Day 4 moves are already determined, so the best thing to do is again, give a card to everyone but your nemesis.
Day 3 and Day 4 moves are completely determined for everyone who knows logic.
Therefore in Day 2 you can do whatever you want without fear of retribution, so you definitely won't send a card to your nemesis. Your options are Friend/Friend, Friend/Non-friend, or Non-friend, Non-friend. The option that's best for you, in terms of probability, is to maximize the likelihood of giving a card to your true friend. So give both cards to your two friends.
In Day 1, you're faced with the same choice as in Day 2, so give cards to both your friends.

Hello ladies!

Whoever calls on me today, I promise that I will return the favor tomorrow (may God make me pay for it on days 3 and 4 if I lie). If I get more than 2 cards today, I'll prioritize sending my cards to those who are not my friends/nemesis (to encourage non-friends to give me their calling cards). And if I can't repay everyone tomorrow, I'll get it done on Day 3.

Dudie: Oh I do so hope the Duchess of Pinshire invites me. That would be ever so smashing.

@bluebambue:
Spoiler:
Give my cards Tormod and orangedragonfire.
That way I get at least 0.5 points out of it, and hope that my true friend doesn't suspect I am their nemesis.

Oh dear, I have reason to suspect that one of my dear friends is just pretending to be my friend and wishes me humiliation instead. This is unacceptable. I must devise a plan to expose her.

FYI, I'm using "lock" in the sense that you can still un-lock at any point until all players are locked.

Your turn to give information. =D

... or should we just skip the back and forth and reveal everything we know?
