Re: The Mafia with the Golden Gun (Day 005)

Ok, so based on that, it means that at the time of placement/checking, there were 4 others besides me at besse's safe house on that night.

Myself, wam, who were the 3 others?

How does the motion sensor counting mechanic work, does it count the person who placed it?

It was not explained fully to me, but the mechanics are: I place it, and it displays a number of people visited. I'm not sure if this includes me or not.

N2: Followed Besse, saw her on the street near King Mongkut's University of Technology, lost her in a crowded bus terminal
Went to my own safehouse to see if someone would visit. Nobody did.

This is true, and a tradeoff you have to manage.

I don't really think there are "team kills" as much as there are certain people with kill abilities (in the form of guns, etc.), who happen to be on team. I'm not even sure there's a traditional night chat, judging by how unorthodox we've seen this game progress so far.

And the problems he cites for the emergency are completely made up, like the drug argument; evidence is crystal clear that the vast majority of drugs come over at ports of entry, not where he's requesting walls be built.
