    lol ... he's just trying to keep you from being bored :)
  1.  
    Speaking of the avatar, Bugs unleashed it on the final day of Game 6 when the prospects for the innocents (who had gotten off to a terrific start) looked quite bleak. He was a self protecting Doc amongst 3 innocents and the 2 mafia had to choose one of the 3 innos to hit. Get the right one and the game's in the bag. They had a 66% chance of winning. Bugs protected the still-suspect Irish ,which turned out to be the target of the mob and everyone made it into the next day and Bugs now knew irish was clean and exactly who his enemies were. There was ecstacy in the Town and in the deadthread and right at that moment Bugs unveiled the huge War Bunny pic which has been condensed to fit into his avatar window.

    If he is clean this game, I hope he can pull out a last minute save just like Game 6 !

    I had to laugh while doing the last vote count. Wes voted for San 3 consecutive times before switching to Bugs, and San has voted for Fojar at least 4 times :)

    Bah, I thought it was a reference to the holy hand grenade....hard to make out exactly what's in that picture.

    San at 6:34p "Yeah KT - I just don't remember reading an [avatar] explanation by Pizza."

    He was a hero in that endgame - it was one of his most glorious moments in ITH Mafia history. We've never seen the pic since. If he then selects it for this game as a mobster, he commits sacrilege not only towards us but also to himself.

    One reason that has occurred to me as to why he may have selected it is that he might have been wanting to send a subtle "I'm actually Spartacus [holy vig] and you should hit me tonight" message to the mob (if anyone in the Den would have remembered). I'll have to ask him about it after the game.

    You know, as a wolf, it would be interesting to try to recruit someone you thought might be mafia... I mean, if you were unlikely to be NKd or lynched it would be pretty safe.

    If KT is a wolf, she could have unsuccessfully tried to recruit Pizza or Jane (ie mafia action won out over wolf action). Or might have tried to recruit a mafia.

    the wolf attacked Nut the first night; he could either kill or convert, not both so the only chance he could have to convert KT would be before he got hit on Night 2. And if he did manage that, then KT and probably Pack are wolves and inno's lose but I am very skeptical about there actually being any wolves in the game.

    If there are wolves in our midst, almost guarantee the wolves are San/Bugs. Look at my posts about the interaction and the voting pattern between the two.


    If you were MX, would you have tried to convert San or Bugs? What's the odds they make it through to the end game? And the wolf can't convert when they are down to 5. So if you converted San, would he convert Bugs? or vice versa?

    That's a good point. The lead vs silver bullet also served as a test along the same lines. NJ attempted to fire the lead bullet...if his target would have survived it effectively buys a werewolf investigation.

    A couple of thoughts on game setup for prosperity... First, I think sending a PM to all participants asking for confirmation before the game starts is a good idea. If no response is received within a day then either subs can be recruited or the setup modified before the game kicks off. Case in point is IBD, who still hasn't read his role PM.

    If I had to do this setup over I think I'd announce the number of players alive on each team at the start of each day...not knowing the wolf status might be a little too FUD. I also think it would be cool to post the total vote count for the NK victim...that might give some interesting food for thought to both the mafia and the town.

    Agree with both cyb and wade here.

    I thought about even discussing wade's point pregame but then it might be more valuable to watch who might address it in the gamethread and why.

    I didn't check extensively but made a few checks to see who was browsing to get the results. Saw San and packone and an apparition that looked like janeg's ghost but no Bugs or KT. The last mobster would have known that fojar was innocent and wouldn't have the same curiosity about the results.

    It might be Wes (KT will go nuts if it's him and we lose this game) by my money is still on San with maybe a 20% chance it's Pack. Wonder if anyone will push for a lynch? If Wes is dirty, can't see him sitting quiet for a no lynch day.

    janeg: "KT will go nuts if it's him [wes] and we lose this game"

    Yeah...it comes to who would induce the least tilt.

    I'd rather lose by tipping the cap to mobbed-up San for a job well done (though I'd hate giving him the satisfaction of a victory) than by flipping the bird to a mobbed-up wes for goofing off and getting the win, which would mean I'd have to lynch wes and hope for the best (barring a strong read).

    Lest wes take umbrage at that remark I wouldn't characterize his triumphant solo performances in Games 17 or 21 as goofing off - he was a lot more applied to the gamethread then.

    MXRider:Hey all, just saw this was opened. Damn you mafia! I was quite surprised by that hit as I appeared to be a very good lynching candidate for the next day and everyone was saying I was off and could easily have been the other mafia.


    Hi Mx ... I think the hit surprised everyone, and it was one of the main reasons I suspected (suspect) San. Who else would read you that well? 'course, it could have just been a misplay by the mob and they got lucky. Did you hit Nut because you thought he'd sniffed you out?


    Nut was a 2 fold hit. He seemed very on target this game early on and he also seeemed to be acting oddly to me. HIs quick late appearance was kind of off for him. I was worried about San catching on to me but thought that Nut was on the right path as well.

    Hi all, I think you're all off base. Question for you - when would KT not go to check a specific reference that was handed to her as an innocent? She responded that I gave a pointer to the avatar scenario but she hever bothered to check it out. Does that sound like KT to anyone?

    I think KT is the remaining mafia. I came to this conclusion just after the vote closed yesterday. Even sent a PM to Wade. I would have definitely had a few questions for her.

    Just what makes KT innocent in this game?

    She was after me like shit on a stick and then all of a sudden stopped. Why?
    She never responded to the patsy post (Jane did). Why not?

    I think San may prevail on the no-lynch today. It'll be interesting to see if she leaves San or Wes alive. (I'm sure she's setting up Pack as the patsy in this one).

    If so Pack should go back and read what I said about the end game. He should also read what I said about San more carefully. I said if we're both around today I'd be all over him, but that overall I'm reading him as inno. That still stands.

    No real surprise about MX getting hit. As I kept saying in the game thread, with only 2 people making lists it's just about impossible to get your partner NK'd. He always contributes zero points to his own name. At worst (and it would be a fluke if it happened) he's be in a rng situation. So with 2 person lists you can always pit people you really want dead near the top of your list. Use a throwaway name that you don't think your partner will select near the top as #1 if you really want to be sure. Then it becomes impossible to hit your partner (unless the throwaway name happens to actually be your partner and even then, as I said, it's just about impossible).

    Both Wes and San are beginning to see the light - but I don't think it will matter. I think Pack is going to have blinders on. Wes appears to have learned that lesson.
