Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Things getting harder for the Mafia as the numbers get smaller is definitely a factor I've been thinking about. Going full random, mafia only breaks even on a 6-1 game, which is why the extra powers are needed. And investigators are an obvious issue. The hard part is finding a non-doctor role for t...

Re: Wams belated simple game - Day 3

If scum witholds, then mpolo just keeps getting more chances to block the NK. Assuming a strong block of 2 town, scum has to make a move and kill at least one of them before getting to 3 people. If scum kills, but not on mpolo, then I don't know what the hell they're doing. Each night that happens, ...

Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

@SJ: So, the main issue is have with that solution would be the 2 town 1 mafia situation in a close game. Normal mafia has this be a 33% win for town if people vote randomly, so they're encouraged to take into account everything that's happened. For reverse, town wins 66% without doing anything, and...

Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

If there is a general refusal to vote, then anyone can defect at the end of the day and vote themselves off. They'll be eliminated, and can't be punished for it afterwards. In case of a tie, the lynch can go to the person who first reached that vote total. I thought self-votes weren't going to be a...

Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

So what exactly are the lynch mechanics going to be? What happens if there's a tie in the votes? How does NL not get allowed in such a situation? If everyone just refuses to vote the entire day and twiddles their thumbs instead, what happens?

I also think it should be Misere mafia, but oh well :P.

Also, roles were randomly distributed as always, so you don't get something in particular for being a newbie. I got to be a naive cop in my first game here, and then got NKed N1 :D (though I had played other kinds of mafia on other sites, I hadn't mentioned it before the game started I believe).
