    I don't know if we can recover from this. In fact, I now put our odds at winning at 1% or less. We will not give up though.

    BGK... go ahead and post your list as soon as possible. Don't change it much, if at all. Maybe consider switching bar and torch around.

    1) sami--COT but really inside plant
    2) bar--never around
    3) torch--no vote and a very short explanation
    4) ben--not sure i believe his explanation for san
    5) fanā??too wacky to be mob, but maybe
    6) nutjob least suspicious

    Random thoughts:

    I feel it is only a matter of time now. Pilchard has played brilliantly. BGK or myself are very likely to be lynched today. I'm guessing BGK.

    Why did Pilchard lie to the town about protecting himself? Wouldn't it be best for the town to know another innocent? Is it just trying to get one of the Mafia to accidently reveal something? I can't imagine that he wouldn't protect himself tonight, especially if he decides not to tell the truth about Nutjob being innocent. He's been one or two steps ahead of us this whole game.

    I think we will take another shot at Nutjob tonight, but maybe that is exactly what Pilchard wants us to do. I still can't believe he didn't protect himself. Is it possible that he felt he needed to take that huge risk in order to win the game? Did he think that the innocents were going to lose if he didn't take the chance? Or, did he simply know that we'd be killing Nutjob and he thought the risk of us hitting him were extremely small?

    More thoughts:

    This game has changed dramatically from when it started. Pilchard is now running the show. He seems to have put the fear of Pilchard into everyone. Everyone, including me, is wondering what Pilchard is thinking and who will be the next to be lynched. Noone feels safe. Right now, the innocents fear Pilchard more than the Mafia. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but it sure seems that way given how quiet it is in ITHica.

    I still don't understand why Pilchard lied about who he protected. If he were going to protect anyone other than himself tonight, I'd think that he would make it known that Nutjob is an innocent just in case he were killed by the Mafia. Wouldn't he want to reveal that information if he was putting himself at risk of being killed? For now, I think we'll stick with killing Nutjob tonight. If Pilchard comes out and lets everyone know that he actually protected Nutjob last night, then maybe we should take a shot at killing Pilchard. We'll have to see if/what he posts between now and nightfall.

    Rest In Peace Mafia brothers! I fear I will be joining you soon. Pilchard is simply too good.

    I decided to take a long shot and try to kill Pilchard tonight. I believe that is our only hope. I'm hoping beyond hope that because he revealed Nutjob as an innocent, he will think that we will kill Nutjob and try to protect Nutjob instead of himself. Pilchard has been one or two steps ahead of us all game, so I'm sure he's ahead of us now. He will protect himself and another night will come and go with no innocent killed. We will see what happens when day breaks.

    I will not give up. I will claim to be innocent until death. They will never force me to admit to being Mafia.

    Someone start diggin' the hole for me. I'm about to be six feet under. LOL Sorry guys! I really thought the only hope was to take one last shot at Pilchard. I figured that was the only way to win once BGK got knocked out. If he would not have mentioned about Nutjob being innocent, Nutjob would be dead.

    Very well played game Pilchard!!

    ITHica is silent as the gallows is being set up for me today. Maybe they are all in hiding content that they are not the one being lynched today. Maybe they all think I am the last Mafia and want to see me dead. Maybe they no longer care and have decided to let Pilchard finish the game however he wants. Whatever the reason is, I'm simply left all alone waiting for my pending death.

    Nside,

    Please don't let nightfall come early today. I'd like to have up to the last minute for people to change their mind. The cutoff is at 2pm ET no matter what is posted after that time, correct?

    Ben

    I won't end the day early no matter what. If I need the time, I could end it late, but not early.

    Too bad Sami had to show up. I had a brilliant plan going. I wonder if anyone else noticed that only Pilchard and myself had actually voted for someone before Sami showed up? I was hoping that everyone else would just figure Pilchard would be sending me to the grave and would forget to give him their vote. I was then planning to change my vote to Pilchard at the last minute and go for the 50/50 shot of taking him out instead of me. That would have been hilarious! I would have had a 50% chance of being able to kill 2 more innocents before they got me. Oh well. At least Sami is pushing to keep me alive.

    Well... my final words in ITHica may have been spoken. Will they be enough to gather pity from the townspeople and have them change their vote? I am not hopeful. Pilchard will see right through it. He has been correct almost every step of the way and this will be no different. The clock continues to tick... tick... tick...

    the mistake was the day before. you and bgk were not around to think about nutjobs parting post and maybe see that pilchard might move to nutjob and you could take out pilchard.

    i was on and felt something was funny...couldn't put it into words.

    but you guys had already voted to lynch nutjob and were gone

    moral: always take four hours to think about the kill....and think about the final posts before nightfall

    but don't worrry about that ben and bgk....you guys have lives outside of here too

    YOU PLAYED FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! really

    I think Nutjob was the right hit two nights ago. I'm still amazed that Pilchard protected Nutjob instead of himself. Pilchard just made a great move. I can't wait to hear why he decided for that. Was it because he was certain we'd go for Nutjob or did he think he needed to take a risky chance in order to win the game?

    He was just sure you wouldn't go for him. Then it was just a matter of picking your most likely target.
