Strictly because we haven't heard anything yet. Not sure what can be discerned otherwise.

RVS or not, it WOULD probably be a prick move to vote out the newbie who JUST got replaced in.

We're on day two, why so worried?

I assume 'nya' was a place save for a vote count

I would agree with this if we were say several days or a dozen pages in but Tis but the second page :o

Are you against pressure in general? or just pressure to Sir Rhett? :nerd:

I’m fine with the pressure. There’s not much information to go around as is. So how does this work? Am I pushed to the edge and given my last will and testament? Haha

The short piling on answers don’t seem to add much other than pressure, but maybe that’s the point?

Town has the most solemn of duties: Vote out every Mafia. So I live by that old adage, ABC "Always Be Closing" on them scum. Let's get that wagon on the SE scum rolling...

A truly blatant confession indeed :wink:

Normally I'd be all in on a self-started bandwagoning, buuuuuut, fellow newb comraderie and all, and besides, pretty sure if we vote out the Semi-Experienced we'll get at least one scum. Like 90% sure. Okay, 80%.

Not sure on the "last will" or "last meals", but at 3 out of 5 you're mos def in hammer territory.

Lucky for you I have diamond hands on Bella.

Basically how it's going to work this early in the game. We'll start pressuring people to get info about how different people react.

Roles are completely random, including for SEs. When I used that in my spartan random-vote I was completely joking. The odds of any one SE being scum are the same as for every other player. Assuming from a town perspective that means at this stage there's about a 3 in 8 chance of hitting one scum that way (I think its a little better than that but I'm not doing that math in my head while I drive).

Especially in newbie games, focus on solving instead of outguessing the setup. It's an open setup, so use any information you might have about your role and the setup to try and understand how other people are acting.

I know, but 3/8 is better odds than 1/8... ;)

Exactly! So you agree it's completely town to eliminate the SEs as fast as possible! Glad to see you're on our side, now just join the Bellatrain and we can fit you for the elimination tomorrow (if the scum don't eliminate you overnight).

It's an open setup...

Technically (which is the best type of correct) it's "semi-open"... and I argue that at this point it's 'semi-closed', so many possibilities that only 5 people are informed of (and 2 of them slightly more informed on). After we get at least one Role flip I'll accept it's semi-open as at that point we're all (sort of) equally informed.

... use any information you might have about your role and the setup to try and understand how other people are acting.

Yes, well, us Vanilla Townies are Sergeant Schultz at this point...
I know nothing!

Sending a prod in advance to Mr. Turtle since I'll be asleep when he's due for a prod in a few hours. If he posts before then it will not count as an official prod.

I didn't like the way CCGeek voted and never came back. I wanted to put the spotlight back on them. I don't really see much of a reason to join the leading wagons yet, we still have so much time.

I'll go ahead and VOTE: UNVOTE for now, but my leading suspicions would go to CCGeek and Bellaphant currently. CCGeek for the reasoning presented by Mr. Turtle. Bellaphant just seems overly eager to hop on wagons and put pressure onto Turtle for not doing the same? But there is still a lot of time, and I don't have enough reasoning as of yet to put a vote on either of them.

Am kind of agreeing with Rhett on Bellaphant. CCGeek still hasn't shown up so that's whatever, but directing people towards wagons just feels very "hmm" in general. 'Overly eager' is a good descriptor.

I'm trying to move the game out of RVs, it's ever so slow. Let's try something else: do people have much experience with mafia or other similar games? What got you into it?
