I must go for now. Boom, I will pick up my posting if it will help you read me. I do think it is important to be read correctly as much as it is to read correctly.

Also, I agree that it is looking less likely that Jim and Laser are both Scum.

Re: Newbie New Year Mafia - N2

I must say that pre flip partner reads have been really prevalent this game (most notably by Cemper and Bessie). While I think that it is important to look for potential partner connections, I think it is a mistake to base your readings so strongly on them without an actual flip.
