1. ## Forgotten District II Mafia

And NP doesn't show blocks. OK
2. ## Forgotten District II Mafia

@flamebirde Still learning... Trying to deduce how someone knows who Indy is. What indication do we have that there was a block? Or do we just assume? But still ... ?
3. ## Forgotten District II Mafia

I'm assuming Hirk is a Goodie, and I've got Flame and Molly as two others. Suspect MiKi and maurice in some order as Baddie/Indie. No idea about Panther, except by elimination. Since MiKi was nice enough to start my lynch, I'll return the honor. I'd like to hear what she has to say. Roster: 1. maurice - voting for Bonanova 2. Flamebirde - voting for Bonanova 3. Molly Mae - voting for Flamebirde 4. Panther - voting for Bonanova 5. MiKi - voting for Bonanova 7. bonanova - voting for MiKi 6. Hirkala - Killed N1 by the Baddies
4. ## Forgotten District II Mafia

We don't know who's who yet, but can we analyze roles? I can think of two questions: 1. Which of the Goodies is most valuable? 2. Between Clark and Mick, who is more dangerous?
5. ## Forgotten District II Mafia

Confirming. What, there's entertainment?

7. ## Signups for Forgotten District II Mafia

Roster: 1. maurice 2. Flamebirde 3. Molly Mae 4. 5. 6. 7. bonanova 8. 9. 10. Roster: 1. maurice 2. Flamebirde 3. Molly Mae 4. 5. 6. 7. bonanova 8. 9. 10. BTW I left this post doubled, rather then editing it, so Site Admin could look at it.
8. ## Bisecting a triangle

Nice stab! I made a picture of it.
9. ## Bisecting a triangle

A triangle has sides of length {1, 1, sqrt(2)}. What is the length of the shortest cut that divides the triangle into two pieces that have equal areas?
10. ## UN Mafia III

Yes. I said "for reasons given earlier" or something like that cuz someone mentioned Aus's powers might be good for endgame. Nice catch. PGP means (I think) Pretty Good Privacy, an encryption scheme, from back in the early '90s.
11. ## UN Mafia III

I'll send a note to Site Admin about the double posts. Does it seem to you that whole site is verrrrryyyy slllooooowwwww as well?
12. ## Who served first?

Araver beat plasmid in a set of tennis, winning six games to plasmid's three. There were five service breaks (games in which the serving player lost.) Who served the first game?
13. ## UN Mafia III

That was my huge screw-up (last I had looked, the vote was a tie which I took to be safe, then I forgot I had a work-out session at the gym - with a PT or I would have skipped it - that kept me from checking back before the 4pm EST deadline.) Damage control, I had to consider how much info to disclose to explain it, without it sounding like fake news / alternative facts. Decided to wait for conclusions and talk them down, quietly, instead, which seemed to work.Anyway, I let the goodie team down, especially MikeD, and I apologize for that. @Thalia, when you turned from chatty to serious you confirmed your identity. Too late, as it turned out. Hoist on my own petard. Thanks to Araver for a fine game. I am totally up (down?) for another game.
14. ## UN Mafia III

So are we all cool with the voting as it stands?
15. ## UN Mafia III

(1) Burying the lead is a mistake of amateur journalists. Instead of stating the main idea up front. (Like implying you're not Sweden.) (2) Exactly right, and the odds unfortunately seem to be in your favor.
16. ## UN Mafia III

Agree. Our job today is to best-guess the secret countries, and keep them safe. Since only Thalia know who they are, we should comb thru her posts. Try to see when she targeted specific country(ies) without an (otherwise) apparent reason. That said, does lynching China today make sense? Thalia's point (2) above advocates lynching China, so we know that would benefit her. Unfortunately, I acted last night so I can't un-quarantine Thalia today - she can't be lynched. After more thought ... this post just reiterates FB and MM. We may be screwed.
17. ## 1000 people in a circle

Great puzzle from the past, resurrected by TinkuVNCK. Because the OP seems to have left the forum, I'm marking mghoffman78 as first solver upvoting plasmid for heroic calculation of the answer upvoting guru_bhai for an "elegant proof" upvoting TinkuVNCK for a cute, quick-and-dirty algorithm upvoting fritzb for a nice closed form solution Good work all.
18. ## UN Mafia III

(1) Not likely ... Deception Rule #1: Bury the lead when you're lying; don't lead with it. (2) You agree killing China before Sweden is best. Plus, it lets you breathe a little longer. (3) It exposed the rest of us, but why wouldn't you want to know? Oh, you're one of us. I get it. (4) It seems that's all you've got left to try.
19. ## UN Mafia III

Sounds good. Host: araver 1. Thalia - quarantined by Sweden 2. bonanova - voting for Maurice 3. Molly Mae - voting for Maurice 4. Flamebirde - voting for Maurice 5. maurice - voting for Flamebirde 6. MikeD - Lynched D1 as United Kingdom 7. plasmid - Invaded N1 by China
20. ## UN Mafia III

Because plas is US? Did you claim?
21. ## UN Mafia III

Suppose China and Sweden are outed. Do the goodies ensure a win, and, who is targeted first?
22. ## UN Mafia III

If if matters, I'm throwing another shrimp on the BBQ. I'm also the reason, through a fantastic guess, that you're alive (yer welcome, mate.) I'm not following all the what-if's here, but if the claim is true that the goodies win if we all claim, then I'm happy to use the occasion to publicly opine that DJT is an SOB for the way he treated my PM. EDit: btw, after D1 does everyone voted for get lynched?
23. ## UN Mafia III

Good outcome indeed. High cunning and great fortune at their best. So maurice's identity is known? Have to think about that. Edit: moreover, one thinks he's clear, another wants to target him. I have an uneasy feeling about China ...
24. ## UN Mafia III

I played in two games, a year or two ago, which were organized in hopes of re-convening the forums. Rookie sent out invites to past players. I think I even won in one game as the baddie. Here, (1) I'm puzzled by maurice's silence, unless he signed up and forgot, (2) I voted MikeD to get him to talk, then thought he would stay in a tie vote and not be lynched (and was preoccupied by another matter and missed checking in in time to remove my vote,) (3) have no clue as to who China is unless it's you, but only because China would be wise I think to actively deflect suspicion, more that any other player, and you have posted as much as anyone. But that's flimsy evidence. I hope I survive the night if only to learn an identity or two. But I wouldn't mind dying if learning my identity would help the goodies win. btw this could be slippery garbage even if I hadn't played before ... I have it in me....
25. ## UN Mafia III

@Thalia, good points. I've played only a few Mafia games. I wish I had accepted Unreality's invite to play, back in the day, and learned it better. Coupled with a hope for a few more games to follow this one. My comfort zone is math and logic, where all the needed info is provided, just needing insight and clear thought. This is more fun, actually, and with experience I might get better. Or, I'm a very slippery guy and everything I just said is garbage. . When does the night end?
