Re: Texas Hold'em Mafia (Day 1)

I haven't read the latest yet, but I should be around in an hour or so. @bessie if you haven't claimed, you should do so. I don’t believe in townies claiming to avoid the lynch. I also don’t believe in votes made purely for self preservation. If a townie is scummy enough that the only way they can ...
