Re: MetaMafia PYP - Day 4: Poor Sungura

Note that cjdrum is about to be modkilled which throws a spanner into the works. I don't think we can win if he's town, so we may as well work on the assumption that he's scum of some sort, probably mafia. Why would people think I'm scum? My lie detect on KrO2 has turned out to be true. The only way...

Re: MetaMafia PYP - Day 4: Poor Sungura

Ok, I'm going to have another go at it in the hope I can explain this better. Possibilties - all numbers are town-scum-cult: 1) 3-2-1 a) We lynch the cult. We lose. b) We lynch scum. It's 3-1-1. c) We no lynch. It's 3-2-1. I think it's pretty clear that in that case, lynching scum is the best thing ...

Re: MetaMafia PYP - Day 4: Poor Sungura

My result from last night has been rendered useless and I'm not going to claim what I do have because I don't want scum to know. The existence of a cult changes the KrO2/Diemo thing - it is possible that KrO2 actually did get an anti-town result on Diemo because Diemo was cult. It is further possibl...
