Re: Crossover Mafia | Game!

Sabrar probably gets the MVP for scum there. At the end, EGW was starting to realize that Sabrar was fishy, but no idea if he would have convinced us in the end.

Re: Crossover Mafia | D5 | 10/26

LaserGuy earlier analyzed who used what power on what night. This makes an EGW-plytho team at least plausible (with plytho having carried out the kill rather than actually inviting bessie to chat). This is assuming that scum can't use their main power while carrying out the kill, which is also only ...

Re: Crossover Mafia | D4 | 10/16

With BoomFrog, I tend to read him as scummy no matter what. And I am reading him as scummy. However, he has made some good points in recent memory and is my main supporter, so I am tending to think I have read him wrong. But that means that I have no idea where scum is hiding, and that is scary to me.
