My last chance to post before deadline, probably. I don't want the day to end on No Lynch - I'd rather be the one to go since at least my flip would be more information on the pile.

I might be getting totally played here but I would like to refer to Solomon the wise for advice and reaffirm my vote on jimbob.

I must admit, if this is a reference, it's gone over my head.

Assuming nothing else changes between now and then, I will be moving my vote to flicky on my way home, likely about 17.30 UTC. As I said earlier, I don't think he's scum, but he's got a higher chance FMPOV than of me being it. Unless people would prefer me to leave it until later to avoid L-1 with an hour and a half to go?

flicky, in case you see this, why would your lynch "add more information to the pile" than mine?

It’s 7:30 am PST (so, for bessie, LaserGuy, BoomFrog, MasterOfAll). We shall see who shows up.

Bessie put your vote down if you want. I'll be on to prevent ties. I'm not working today.

Nah, I was hoping MasterOfAll would check in and vote. I unvoted because if MoA did show up and voted for flicky, jimbob could hammer.

We shall see. If LaserGuy was serious about moving to jimbob the least he could have done is to unvote first. That has no risk.

Suicidal, but it would save you from the lynch, and free you from fear of being watched.

So I’m suspicious of this statement. And yes, I don’t like that Madge is pulling the “self preservation” vote gambit too. And no, I don’t think it’s right to attack flicky over this and let Madge get away with it because it is totally within her meta. So I’m suspicious of both of you for it.

Posting to show that I don't intend to self-hammer.

I disagree with suspicions on self-preservation votes in general, but it's not worth debating at this stage.

Who are the next two lynches you would choose based on current information? We're not going to have more info tomorrow then you do right now.

I think bessie and Hari are likely the scum team, for reasons noted earlier in my reads list. I know this disagrees with practically everybody else, but I still stand by it. I'm pretty confident that flicky's slips are genuine, less so with cemper's though, but his play seems to be pretty townie overall.

I think scum is either flicky/jimbob or bessie/MoA at this point. If it's the former, it doesn't matter much which one we lynch. If it's the latter, I'm resigned to the fact that we've already lost.

JimBob-Flicky team doesn't really make sense. We should probably be lynching LaserGuy first since he's most likely mates with either of them. Oh well, too late now. Being confirmed town has made me lazy...

"Good morning Randalsburg. This is radio WXKCD and here is the News. Our top story this morning: Late yesterday, jimbobmacdoodle was arrested by Randalsburg Sheriffs on suspicion of being a member of a criminal gang. It appears that jimbobmacdoodle was aware of his impending arrest, and attempted to escape in a kayak. Sherrif wam, speaking to reporters after the arrest, said, 'We're not sure how jimbobmacdoodle became aware that we planned to arrest him, but we're certainly glad that he didn't choose a more sensible escape method.' It is not certain at this time whether bail will be granted.
"Sadly, we must now report on the death of another fine upstanding citizen of Randalsburg. The famed neurosurgeon BoomFrog was found dead at his home early this morning. Although there were no signs of a struggle, the Sheriff's Department is treating his death as suspicious, and Deputy Sheriff Suzaku, who spoke to us on condition of anonymity, indicated that they believed that the Mafia was involved.
"On a lighter note, now, the latest craze among the cool kids of Randalsburg; chocolate malted milk."


Jimbobmacdoodle was lynched. He was vanilla town.

Boomfrog was night killed. He was the doctor, a member of town.

Start of Day 5, 6 alive it takes 4 votes to lynch.

This leaves 10 possible pairs which should be manageable to review. Furthermore I think it's fair to discard cemper/MOA+flicky and Hari+LaserGuy based on D1 (though I will take a second look). That leaves 8 pairs.
Also, even though it's MYLO there's technically no advantage in NL, except to gain more time (and allow Hari to catch up). So it might be wise to do it regardless. Either way I'll finally be able to read all those spoilers a week from now. :D

Note (mostly for flicky's benefit) that in MYLO any townie with two votes can be quicklynched by scum and end the game. Best to be a bit cautious with voting until later in the day.

For reference, the ten pairs are:
Spoiler:
LaserGuy/bessie
LaserGuy/Hari
LaserGuy/flicky
LaserGuy/MoA
flicky/Hari
flicky/MoA
flicky/bessie
bessie/Hari
bessie/MoA

For most part of the game flicky and Hari avoid each other like wildfire, not even committing to reads. From that pov that is certainly a possible pair.

Yeah, sorry about that. I was curious if playing mafia here would once again be enjoyable for me (I played in bunches of games back in 2009 and 2010). I'm not sure why, but I have not had the motivation to get immersed in this game. So, I will endeavor to be more active in this game, but realistically I am likely not going to be composing super long and detailed posts.

Regarding Hari's vacation, do we know when to expect him back? If he said, then I am somehow missing it.

Regarding No-Lynch, I don't see any benefit from it in this scenario where we have a confirmed townie. On the other hand, NL should be a no-brainer tomorrow (if we get there).

As for getting to D6, I'm a bit discouraged at the moment. I was looking forward to jimbobmacdoodle being revealed as scum and then having 2 shots at finding his buddy.

I've already spent more time at work on this post than I should have, so that's all for now. I should have some time this evening to consider the possible scum teams.
