Re: The Mafia with the Golden Gun (Day 003)

I know I have an ability that, were I to be arrested, I would be back out the next day. It's odd that you are aware of it while Wam claims he wasn't and Mark seemed to imply the same. I also have this mechanic. Although I will say that it is not as cut and dry as "arrest immune" (granted ...

Re: The Mafia with the Golden Gun (Day 003)

Well, I for one don't like this, as we basically NL'd two days in a row, and have no extra information (that people are willing to divulge). My actions failed last night (well, the ones that weren't defensive actions, which I didn't get any feedback on). I tried to follow someone, and lost them in a...

I guess I'm really not understanding this game, as it appears again that we have all the players in the game still.

Why are you not voting for Mark? Because I haven't decided how far into this "arrest all the people!" strategy I'm gong to follow though with. There's been a bit more activity from mark than D1, so I'm not sure how I feel about him now, and piling on votes into a strategy I'm not 100% on ...

I don't know if the typical wisdom about balancing numbers can be applied to this setup, which appears to be not only power-heavy, but also with varying forms of non-traditional mechanisms, which could easily throw our concepts of "balance" for a loop.

They haven't been trying ever since they begun backing Trump, as the daily hypocrisy was just far too obvious and glaring to defend. So they stopped trying to explain or defend it, descending into Orwellian double-speak seamlessly.
