Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

WoT3 For the record, I was actually planning on giving the whatsit to Liri, but then Madge subbed in and I didn't bother changing it. I had no intention of bringing it up, never mentioned my secondary win, unless I was reading whoever had it as scummy. Which would have been the case if she had g...

Better to sacrifice a knight than have your queen taken. I also agree BoomFrog's secondary win needs too many shenanigans.

So, BoomFrog looks like he's saying even if Vicarin is indie, he'll be anti-scum indie.

Pretty sure at this point about LG and huery; don't know at this point is Sabrar is the third or just being misled.

WoT3 So, wild guess right now is Sabrar-LG-h_a scum team with Madge (and maybe Vicarin) as independent, leading to 7-3-1 or 6-3-1-1. Is the latter even possible and balanced? Next step is who do I want to track. I also know about Madge's offer of a "present" since she'd be ...

Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D1)

Boring setup spec would be a coin flip between 8-3 and 7-3-1, but with the assurance of power roles a-go-go I think some of the more exotic suggestions by Sabrar are more likely (except the 7-1-1-1, that just sounds whack).
