  1. Well, is anyone willing to counter Mo's claim of being blocked? Because I sure wasn't. Edit: doubled.
  2. Well currently I'm reading Mo as Indy, so...
  3. Hirk had to have been a goodie: baddie wouldn't target himself for a kill, and Indy can't be killed N1.
  4. That's a pretty bold play, then.
  5. @Molly Mae did you perhaps drop a subtle hint in an earlier post? @bonanova What makes you think Molly and I are cleared? Roster: 1. maurice - voting for Bonanova 2. Flamebirde - voting for MiKi 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 For the moment, Bonanova's at least said something fairly constructive. I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt today and place pressure on someone else who hasn't said much at all.
  6. Yeah, I guess so. I just saw trap>block in the OP so I assumed a bit. In terms of clearing a goodie, though, I'm not sure about that one. Blocking the spy is the worst case scenario. Blocking the vanilla does nothing, even after he gets his kill. Blocking the vote manip could potentially lose the game. And blocking the save is... almost always bad. Bottom line, I'm not sure that the shopkeeper should ever act. The chances are that it would hinder the goodies more than it would help, especially not after last night, where I assume the block already knows who the Indy is. I suppose those two possibilities still apply, but I'm thinking inactivity is unlikely, given that everyone's commented (except Hirk, but he got offed N1, so...). Purposeful misdirection? A possibility. If the block knows for a fact who the Indy is, it would be in our favor for the shopkeeper to out now.
  7. Ah, or maybe I'm not. Five minutes of thinking helps a lot. Incidentally, what's the point of the block if it can only block goodie actions?
  8. Good for you, I'm completely lost in this nonsense. I've got a guess as to where this leads, but really I'm just praying now. For now, I'll follow the bandwagon on Bonanova. 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 6.

  9. Here we are now, entertain us! By the way, are all saves shown or only successful ones? @araver

    Haha, nevermind. I asked a word that had already been asked. oops.
  11. I think it's fair to say that the Coup of Rhotus is effectively dead for now; we're having enough trouble getting signups for a ten player game as is. Maybe once we build the player base a bit we can try to revive it, but for now I think it's rather unlikely. On the other hand, Forgotten Districts is in signups, and that's relatively close to getting off the ground!
  12. Roster: 1. maurice 2. Flamebirde 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. We'll see if we can get enough players.

    Wouldn't have worked. As per the rules, Sweden can't get killed N1. Ack, stop making me feel bad... And I wouldn't have had a good response... Why would you have lynched me instead? Personally, I still would have gone for it; you weren't going to live past D2 at that point, so might as well take someone out with you. I guess in the end this whole "remove vote" thing didn't matter at all, but for the amount of time I agonized over it, I wish it had.

    Well played, Thalia. I guess outing everything wasn't such a great idea. Well, you live and learn. Good job all! Wait, did my bluff actually work? Did Maurice remove a vote? Like, it actually has no bearing on the outcome of the game, but I still want to know.

    I've been wondering about the apples too, actually.

    If I did the math right, we've got a 36% chance of winning this one. There's a 60% chance that the US wasn't one of the targets (4/5*3/4=3/5) and a 60% chance that UK wasn't one, and for us to win both must not be a target. .6*.6 gives us .36... Well, not much we can do about it now. At least I've got my vote for today, so the lynch is guaranteed, even with the ODTG vote manip. Silver linings.

    The worst part is that there's a chance we just hand Thalia the win by lynching China today: if at least one of the two dead people were one of her wincons, (that is either UK or US), and we lynch China, then she could easily RID kill the last target. Unfortunately, I'm not sure we have another option. It's a gamble, but...

    Thalia, the jig is up. You aren't claiming because there's no roles left to claim. @maurice_2.0 answered that question in my post above; it got merged in.

    Well, I've got to sleep now. I'll try to check in the morning, but I might not be able to- I've got commitments up until at least one tomorrow afternoon (I live on the West Coast), so I can't answer any questions. Good night, and good luck.

    Well, Mo must be China, and Thalia must be Sweden. That is to say- You and Molly are more or less clear in my book, and probably in yours too, so it comes down to a three versus 1 vote best case scenario. We outvote and kill China, then tonight I save no one, ensuring the next day we have at least a two versus 1 vote (if someone gets RID killed). On the other hand, if the scenario is 2v1v1 with Molly as China and me as Sweden (as I think it's quite clear Maurice and I aren't on the same team), then if you both vote for one and China and Sweden vote together, then the game is incredibly, incredibly iffy- after your potential extra vote is factored and China's ODTG action is too, AND If Sweden RID kills a goodie, this means that it'll be 1v1v1, where the goodies lose this lynch, and Thalia (in this scenario, she would have to be Germany, since MUrice would be US, Plas would be Russia, and the other two roles are covered between Bonanova being Australia and Mike being the U.K.) would save herself. then, China would to kill Sweden (since obviously Thalia would be protected), and Sweden can't trap the night after RID killing, so it would be Thalia versus China in the final lynch, with a coin flip for a tie and a China win. Not a good scenario. but I know, since I am Germany, we can and should win this game. Are we told the player's role if that person is RID killed? Can Australia use their vote powers today? Who, then, is Germany? It's not you, it can't be Bonanova, and it couldn't be me in this scenario. It would have to be either Thalia or Molly, and if Molly was Germany, there would be no reason to lie nor to take a huge leap claiming Russia and supporting Bon. Therefore, if I am Sweden, Thalia must be Germany.

    What does POE mean? And to refute your point- if Molly lied, then Molly is either Sweden or China, Plas was Russia, you are the US, and Bonanova is Australia. I guess it comes down to this- I can't be China. Therefore, if I'm not a goodie, I must be Sweden, and therefore Molly must be China, and I trapped Thalia, who then must be Germany. But since we all seem to agree that Thalia must be bad, this can't be the case. Therefore, I can't be Sweden.
