In post 73, Jingle wrote:Your numbers have to be off (paragon win increasing would by definition decrease scum win %). I'll look at it in a little bit to see where.

The paragon increase only comes from the case where scum have lost anyway (and town have won anyway). So it doesn't decrease the scum win chance.

?

They have twice as many chances to win when town has been lynched (2/6 compared to 1/6) which means scum has 4/6 instead of 5/6 chances to win in that case.

When scum is lynched they have 1/4 + 1/3 (which is ~58%).

Add in the weights (.4 for a scum lynch and .6 for a town lynch) and you get .4 v .4 v.43 Where the overlap of 23% is a joint town/Paragon win.

My suggestion was to give the Paragons two chances only if scum was lynched D1.

alright i've loaded out the OP with a table of setups we're considering.
if anyone has any others just sing out and i'm happy to throw them in; if for example people are around and there's a particularly clueless mod (=> me) i guess having them somewhere increases the chances they'll be run. :lol:



obv. i've left out the usual suspects a la vengeful lovers mafia etc. but they'll no doubt get a fair thrashing

Here's a setup I made up a while ago that we could try (obviously, I'll be running it concurrently in the micro queue). I can make a discussion thread for it if people want.

I suggest that we use this thread during the marathon to announce games, similarly to the upcoming game announcements thread.

I'll probably run BoP Mafia tomorrow afternoon if anyone is interested.

i sent a courtesy pm to the people who /in'd just in case people like get email alerts/haven't been around the forum and stuff :)

yeah if people are planning to run opens and want some numbers, maybe advertising em in here as the great and wise jingle suggested is a good option. i've got some other folks who expressed interest in discord pings so i'll try and keep them adequately poked about what's going on.

So I kinda forgot the game was happening, but I've played this setup a couple times in sitechat before, (and modded them, too) and usually it doesn't matter who gets lynched first, just because if you get town, you get a confirmed townie, and most of the time by the first couple minutes based on who's working with who and so on and so forth. I saw the votecount and it looked like it was him or you. I knew if I voted you I'd either get scum and p much win, or I'd get town and you'd shoot him (killing scum). That's how it goes pretty much every time. So I flipped a coin that would only land heads up.

I get this setup mixed up a lot, though, with SS3 (and also every time I skim this I think townies are perma one-shot lynchproof) which is why I posted like I did at beginning of day 2. I know you know I'm town, cuz if you didn't think I was, you'd have shot me yesterday. Let's lynch RC and win this thing for the homies?

Rogue Agent Mafia was just run as a 'surprise open' with a town win.
(ignore the radiantcowbells memes & double-win jokes; it was run entirely as described)

Also a couple of ideas that are less effort than this game but still theme games. But I really shouldn't host any of them until I finish my dissertation.



Any guesses on the number of beans in the vegan bean chilli?



JJ wants to run this. Volunteer and pick a time, peeps!
