Oh no!! That's.. my second newbie game! *hides*

That game is actually where Pine taught me not to tunnel. Very quality lesson that I suggest everyone heed.

Third ever mad game, first on this site :D


You vote chronicle for bandwagoning.
Loopdan switches to the same vote and he doesn't get a mention.

Fair enough. It was a mistake, I didn't see it. I don't think I would be that obvious to reveal a potential scum buddy, but you don't know me so believe what you want

What do you think about Loopdan?

First post was legit, kinda confused why he changed his vote in his next post.


So you overlooked him by mistake.
His vote change is confusing to you.
His vote on stealthynoodle by your reasoning deserves him being voted.

Help me vote him then.
You can ask him questions to try and get unconfused.

Everyone tunnels. Even experienced players, sometimes especially us. Many of the older players around here have sufficient history with one another that we're bringing old grudges, friendships, wishful thinking, perceptions of meta, and larger psychological chess matches into new games. In some ways, the peril of tunneling* is even greater for older players, because we can be set in our ways. The true lesson there was how to recognize when you are tunneling, especially when your tunnel is being taken advantage of by scum, and how to pull yourself out of a spiral.

*"Tunneling" is a shorthand reference to the notion of gettting "tunnel vision," where you can only see your target. Frequently, when a player becomes absolutely sure of a read, they drill down and focus on it to the exclusion of all else, missing vital clues in the periphery. This is closely linked with the phenomenon of confirmation bias (confbias), another psychological hazard, where you are so sure of something that you subconsciously interpret any new evidence as supporting your present position, regardless of objective fact. Tunneling can lead to confbias, and confbias can lead one to tunnel.

Red sauce is simmering. I take store-bought jars of sauce and add ingredients to them until the flavor is entirely changed. This time, I added sauteed onion, garlic, thyme, hand-crushed rosemary, oregano, and Parmesan cheese to it, among other things I'm likely forgetting. I don't have an open bottle of red wine (I'm a riesling fellow) so I'm giving that a pass tonight.

Hello! Nice to meet you all. So we're stuck here then.

First game and I'm already overwhelmed. I do get that this strategy puts town in a better spot, but I agree with Nancy that it seems like a rather bad way to start out a game for newbies, and not much fun at all. I'm sure there will be plenty of time to read about this strategy inbetween later games. On second hand TesXX and Loopdan both seem eager to steer the victory towards town, while Nancy doesn't seem to support this agenda. For now I'll claim not BP and
VOTE: nancy.

Feels a bit bad, as you're the first person I've agreed with in here.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure scum are trying to ramp up the nancy bandwagon for a quick kill so they can sit back and go "oopsie!"

Getting a vibe that at least one scum is on nancy right now, maybe both.

Well. I wouldn't go so far as to say that. I mean hell, I suggested it and I'm not sold on it being absolutely the right thing to do. Refusing to participate in a widely-accepted pro-Town practice is only scummy if it is widely accepted; this is not.

Well about 80% of TesXX' posts till now relate to the BP-claiming-strat and it's usefulness for town.

As for Loopdan

In post 11, Loopdan wrote:Everyone needs to make their BP or notBP claims immediately. Do this in your first post. Do not stall. Do not claim or hint at any other roles you may have and don't hint that you do not have a power role.


Seems pretty eager to me.

In post 82, Srceenplay wrote:Why vote Nancy if you feel bad about it?


She still wants to boycott a town-winning strategy. Even though I agree with her that the strat is more frightening than helpful in a newbie-game, I'd still say there's a higher probability she's scum.

Yes. Have you been reading my posts? What do you think about my refusal? Does it mean that I'm scum? You should probably go ahead and lynch me, if so.

I don't think the strat is frightening in the least. I think it's not a good way to introduce newbies to mafia.

Why did you claim even though you agreed with me, and why did you vote me? You're at L-2, btw.

I have nothing to hide; my vote is solely based on supposed probability. If some other good theories come around, I'll surely listen.

What are your reasons for defending her on the other hand? Joking around with friends is something anyone could do; scum or not.

We're clearly out of RVS but I don't feel comfortable putting Noodle at L-1 at this stage in the game so I'm going to vote for the inactive slot.

VOTE: bjc

bjc, please do things okay?

pedit supposed probability?

@nancy I agree that this strat is not the best way to introduce newbies to the game, but I'm not the IC (and neither are you). Your wincon should take precedence over your desire to teach newbs. I get opposing the BP claim strat if the claims hadn't started yet, but with 6/9 already claiming it only helps scum to have incomplete claims.

Also, this would not detract from RVS if you would have followed instructions and claimed in your first post.

@srceen-- you too

I refuse to vote anywhere else but non-claimers until this is resolved.

Oh and I simply explain my reasons for my vote, because you ask me too. I'd say calling it a gross exaggeration, is an exaggeration in itself. Shame on you.
