Current standings:

Adam H: 4+3+3=10
Vytron: 1+3+5=9
Tormod: 2+1+5=8
Orangedragonfire: 2+2+4=8
Snark: 3+1+3=7
Dudiobugtron: 0+2+4=6


Dudie: Oh, there's not long now until the ball, and I'm sure I won't be chosen! *wrings handkerchief*.
And some ladies can be quite vindictive; I just know they'll visit the more popular ladies just to avoid seeing someone they hate. *wretched sigh*
But we all know who's going to the ball now, don't we? Not poor old Dudie, that's who!
*faints*.

It's not about being the top lady, it's about maximizing your popularity. Everyone should be trying to get as many points as they can without caring about who "wins" or "loses".

My thoughts on this game:

It was too easy to optimize if you thought about it too much and there was not enough incentive for discussion.

A setup that might work better: you don't know who your nemesis is and visits aren't public. You do, however, know how many points you have at the end of each day. This means that you try to talk to people to suss out who was visited how many times to narrow down who your nemesis is. In this setup, I don't think a true friend would be needed.

Also, what is the scoring??? I thought it was your own plus 1/2 your true friend's minus 1/2 your nemesis, so even if the visits were accurate, I'd have 14+6-5.5=14.5 and Tormod would have 12+7-5=14.

Hmm, let me double check.

Not being a perfectionist makes me make a lot of mistakes in things like this.

And you are quite correct. You are the winner. I was accidentally multiplying the true friend score by 1.5 instead of 0.5 and counting how many times you visited other people instead of the other way around.

Sorry for the mixup and general bad modding as the days ticked by.

Good job Adam. My strategy did quite poorly.

Congrats Adam! I guess a mistake I did was visiting Tormod, but by not doing so it'd have been obvious he was my nemesis, third place wasn't that bad!
