Re: Refrigerator Mafia - D1 - The Purge Begins

Yeah, but seriously, in the one nightless game I played (Dark Tower), scum completely outplayed town so I guess I'm looking for strategy tips? I think the significance of chat (day, night, scum, mason, etc) tends to be underrated. If a mafia team has day chat, I would consider it a major, not an in...

Re: Refrigerator Mafia - D1 - The Purge Begins

Summary of my specific issues with that line: 1. when I’m talking about rule #2 I’m talking about rule #2 compared to other possible tie breaking rules. So when I read “rule #2 implies 7-2” I interpret this as “more so than other tie breaking rules, rule #2 implies 7-2” ... So you’re saying you thi...

Re: Refrigerator Mafia - D1 - The Purge Begins

Sabrar misinterprets bessie’s thought process and assumes bessie’s post presents a linear thought progression: A leads to B leads to C, and if C therefore the result is D. He also selectively quoted C and D to illustrate this. This - as has been clarified already - is not true. My assumption was th...

Per rule #2, tying the votes won’t stop the lynch. So I’m going to say 7-2, or 6-2-1 where independent is not anti-town. Why does one follow from the other? Good question. plytho, instead of just active lurking by reposting a question from the post immediately preceding yours without adding your ow...
