2. i like the people at dominion forum but part of the fun of mafia is making character judgments about people you don't know
3. thus far, i have been mafia twice and town once. at this point, i was happy to get town just because of that, but i also like town more because knowing everything is boring
4. i like target-investigative roles, the example here being tracker

UNVOTE: gigabyteTroubador, VOTE: ThinkBig


Granted, considering your point on the newbie claiming the PR they might have gotten, he could be Tracker if he decided to soft the role in that way :P

:dead: lmfao :dead:

advice for the future it's not a good idea to point out softs

also i have my 5 townreads, game over gg mafia

@Gayreen, especially because I think he's town, can you explain what you meant by your reasoning?

yeah that's not really suspicious here in most contexts

we have like 2 weeks to go at this and people have work and school and lives in general so usually just checking in and making a few posts is typical

i don't feel his engagement in the game is bad either, like an example of where that would be suspicious is if there were more things to talk about, like dueling wagons or something

Is it a bad idea to say who your townreads are, or are you guys just opting to not say them

so i'm townreading someone you're not

GAYreen's engagement with me felt super genuine and i think as scum he would know not to point out the tracker soft and wait to tell his partner about that because he'd be thinking about nightkills instead of lynches. felt more like town derp

You're really obvtown here. The "this game is going to be hard" comment just pinged me as super chicken little town which is classic town!Creature especially

Rask I'm vibing with really hard here and just feel spiritually connected to him here. their game here so far is probably within their scum range but it feels way more town than not so. dunno how else to word it

i liked matt's vote and his first few posts, felt like he had an idea of how to start scumhunting and his questions were pretty legit for a newbie

schadd's voting the closest thing i have to a scumread and did it on his own volition. plus his reasoning for the vote is decent enough for the point of the gamestate we're in. good tone too

not in any order but that's where i'm at

this post should answer that question :dead:

honestly it's a subjective thing

like i'd make the argument in most games that it's bad to do early in a newbie because the newbies who haven't posted yet will know how to adapt to the players in the game to be townread

but with a slow gamestate like this talking about anything is the only way we can really move forward

GAYreen (and any of the newer players here), have you read any games on here? It might be a good idea to see what's considered scummy/townie (if you don't already have a sense) or just get an idea of how a game usually goes.

Newbies are typically really slow like this but there are a few good ones out there too.

obv was not trying to softclaim tracker, nor softclaim not tracker, etc. that said, i also got the rolefishing impression

4. What is your favorite/least favorite role?

5. if you had to sum up your role in this game in one (1) fleetwood mac song, what would it be?

i've been reading the thread. i don't really trust my townreads, esp. d1 (my first and only town game was a flawless scum victory) so i don't have anything really interesting to say. rn i think creature is town, GBT is kinda town

not taking the vote off of TB for now

Do you recommend any games in particular? I've read a little bit of day 1/day 2 from a game, but games are so long that it's hard to really read through a full game.

:dead: :dead: (type in dead between colons to be just like me :dead: )

you can get a good deal of posts if you view one person's ISO but yeah it's not the same.

i can kind of sympathize with not trusting townreads after a hard scum loss (read newbie 1718 :dead: ) but honestly losses like that are the best teacher like that. What do you make of Rask btw? They're my most gutty/weird read so maybe some thoughts both ways could help develop that

also that's a boards of canada avatar right

Off the top of my head, I thought Newbie 1741 was a good game (relatively active town, quirky characters, good thought processes from both sides). It's good enough I wouldn't want to spoil the ending tbh

1746 is my only scumgame so if you want to see that in action that's there. it's more of a "what-not-to-do" sort of read though, town fucked it up pretty badly there because they took too long to do anything useful D1 and rushed D2. looking town there wasn't hard for me to do at all and I didn't even have to bus my partner who asked to be bussed in our pt :dead:

1759's my most recent town game that's finished but it's kind of a shit read

1735 was kind of crazy but not really a newbie game, lots of replacements early on and older players took most of those slots. still an interesting game

I'm still looking through games btw, 1729 is also a pretty decent read so far (i'm only on like page 3 though and i barely remember reading it in real time)

Wtf is this seriously though

How do you have expectations of me without having played with me? You sure you aren't scum with someone who played with me before or something?

This is actually annoying because it's the latest in trends I've gotten, I seem to get paranoia from people who haven't even ever played with me which is like the most random thing ever. People I played with it at least makes SOME sense but what or just how is this. How does it even happen? Is there something in my style that puts people on edge or something? People at some just randomly assumed I was a scumgod and every game since I've dealt with that and the weirdest thing is it doesn't even have a logical basis.
Even just last game aside from scumcloud it was townhoopla for literally no reason and blackvoid, at least creature there had SOME justification given he's actually played with me but really.
