So if we vote, we risk lynching a townie (obviously) and if we don't vote we risk unknown sanctions from our moderator? would that be the certain death of a random townie?!?!

When I first read the rules, I thought it was 4 mafia and 4 police, but we don't know that, right?

celia, last time we had 5 mafia and two police; with so many players I'd expect more.

Actually, the more I think about it the more I am tempted to not vote just to see what jeniwren has up her sleeve. [Evil] Of course, as one of the agitators, that makes me a likely target of whatever she comes up with . . . [Angst]

I vote to vote because of the fun factor and the punishment factor and the playing in to the Mafia factor.

Um, y'know, I've rethought this. And yeah, the whole let's-vote-cuz-it's-more-fun thing -- I see your point.

Actually the more I think about it it would be interesting to see what jenniwren comes up with. Is it possible a "natural disaster" could take out Mafia as well?

How about the Godfather? Some one the police can not find out about? The Godfather, for the most part, can only be found by random killing of people.

It is just something you don't want to do in the first few rounds.

I am suggesting that the thing that Jeni can do is to put in the Godfather.

IIRC, the Godfather can never be found out by the police. So eventually the townies have to start making guesses.

All I am saying to the townies is do not vote to lynch anyone first or second round. It only helps the mafia.

Now if Jeni says that we have to vote, then I will do so, but one of the options was to abastain, and I am just asking for everyone to abstain.

What if everyone abstains but one person.
Does someone still get lynched?

Yes but then we assume that person is Mafia and lynch 'em next time around. So it could very well be that the Mafia is manipulating us to not vote or we're living in a dictatorship.

Yes

If one person votes then who ever that person voted for gets lynched. It would also make the person who voted suspect as the mafia.

If all the townies agree not to lynch, then the mafia can not gang up on one person and get that townie lynched. While the other townies spread their vote around, the mafia can concentrate their vote and make sure that one of them do not get lynched by accident. Any townie they get to vote with them just helps hide their complicity.

The townies limit the mafia by making them do all the work in the back ground.

But if they continue to vote in such a way then we can determine who is Mafia.

Round one, no townie is supposed to vote. If you vote then you are suspect as mafia. If some one votes then they are either mafia or stupid, and I don't want any stupid townies. Either way, if some one votes then they get lynched the next turn.

Remember, when we vote to lynch there is a very good chance that most of the mafia will vote for the same person, to make sure that someone who is not mafia gets lynched. They will try and get other townies to agree with them to cover their tracks.

Well I would hope that all the other townies would see your evil ways and string you up the next round.

Or, of course, I could vote for you, leaving a draw and either we both die or neither of us.

But since you voted first, you are obviously the evil mafia. [Evil]

But I didn't vote for you. Besides if I did it would be symbolic because you are immune.

nfl,

I understand. You are saying what if you vote for me the first round to lynch, but becuase I am immune I can not be killed?

I just reread what jeni posted and I can not get lynched the first turn. I did not realize that. I just thought that I could not get killed by the mafia first turn. It really does not matter. I wonder how jeni would write that up? [Smile]

Or we could all split our vote between Ralphie and me.

Okay guys, enough of this no voting thing. Can't you see how utterly ridiculous it all is?. It's not supposed to be that easy for the townies to win, otherwise the game wouldn't be fun at all.

That's part of the whole strategy of the game: guessing who to vote for, knowing who to trust when they accuse someone, and guessing when the mafia is trying to manipulate the townies. If someone doesn't get lynched everyday, not only will the game be less fun, but it will go on forever! So suck it up and vote. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a mafia, and maybe you'll help the mafia out by killing a townie or a policeman. That's just part of the game.

I don't want to hear anymore of this "no voting" strategy! [Grumble]

In the words of a famous character we all know, this will only work once. Then they will change the rules.

I still think that if Jeni puts in the Godfather, that that will even it out.

Well, I'm going to miss most of them 'cause I'm busy then.

Is it 8 30 hatrack time, or what? I live in Indiana, and I have no idea whether we're currently on central or eastern time.

In the past town meetings have been strictly optional. Only people who can make it come. If you don't have AIM or can't make it at that time, but you want to have a town meeting, you can always schedule one in a different place at a different time.

::back to normal::

Or it could have just been a simple mistake.
