Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

Just re-reading the mafia scum link: In practice, the Jester almost always wins, which is an obvious balance concern. 12-players is probably not a favourable number to house three Mafia and a Jester for town. Is it worth a GM call to determine the message non-PRs that get roleblocked get? Would the...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

I don’t think mafia would roleblock their kill target normally on night 1.They’re looking to maximize disruption of PRs, so I’m tempted to believe Snowy. They might RB their NK target if they want to claim the RB themselves. People always bring up this point but no one ever actually does it, becaus...

Agree. Snowy is my strongest townread after Vecna.

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

What do you think of rdr or JBH? @Chaqa, funny you should take my agreeance with you as a negative. Maybe if I called you all kinds of names you might feel more comfortable. I thought you made a good point. If that makes me the enemy of the town, damn, I think I am better off keeping my yap shut. I...

-- snipped -- Bob Ghug Rivera --------------- Johnny Food I believe there is a very high likelihood of finding scum in that group. *Rivera was part of the maxim as well, though I left him out before because he hadn't posted as much yet and I was waiting to see what he would do.

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

The worst thing for town would be to get into a situation where we have a clear scan claimant and we don't know if they're town or Jester on a day when it really would matter. And yeah, I'm not surprised you feel this way. You tend to look at these things as pretty black and white. Not killing the ...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

You're ignoring that the first scenario gives town two chances to kill scum before getting to day 3, whereas the second scenario only gives one, so they amount to roughly the same thing. Except the first scenario allows Jester to fuck things up for town later on, which you should be aware of. +10 s...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

Friends, I will not lie, I have no idea about this game. I would like to defend myself by saying I have been literally working 90 hours this past week and am running on about 3 hours of sleep for the past 48 hours, and am still working now. My helpful comment of the day thus is to remind everyone t...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

I agree we should not worry about the jester. Although, it would be better for town if the mafia wasted a NK on him. Mechanical analysis king Bozo would recognize there's no world where jester gets night-killed. The only way Jester loses is by being night killed, basically, and any competent Jester...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

I still think the best thing for today would be for the Jester to claim and let us flip them, so that they get an immediate win and the mafia loses a potential partner. This way we don't lose a town on Day 1. While still limiting the field of cop scans and doc saves. While also guaranteeing us one e...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

Sorry, I ran through the math on my own and didn't explain it in the thread, but I'll go back over it now. Game starts at 8-3-1 spread on day 1. Mafia has no incentive to nightkill the jester. We have two lines: 1. Leave the jester alive 2. Kill the jester today If we follow Line 1, assuming miskil...

Re: Mini-Mafia Game - Interesting Facts Edition GAME THREAD [Hidden]

I think the math checks out that killing the Jester day 1 is good. We ideally want to hit mafia, but the Jester makes endgame math and motivations fuzzy. ##Vote ghug for now on the basis he is the Jester I mean I am the jester but that's why you shouldn't kill me . Hoping the jester dies is fine. N...

I believe there to be at least 2 scum in the group:

Johnny
Hamilton
Vecna
Dargo

I will explain why later in the day phase.
Is it later yet?
Indeed it is. Working my way there.

I agree we should not worry about the jester. Although, it would be better for town if the mafia wasted a NK on him. They’re more likely to hit one of us though, right? I think I’d like going into N1 as 8-3 as opposed to 7-3-1? Yes, but the mafia could hit the jester, and we do not know who the jes...
