Yeah, vigilance is always a great trait in Mafia. Have fun, and don't take anything personally in this game when things heat up. Always remember, it's just a fun(sadistic?) game :)

What about Splinter, batsnacks? It feels like you overlooked him in your discussion of town or mafia.

That's just puntastic! I'll have to remember that one! But seriously recapping is Just one more option to do on Day 1.

Jokes, recaps and a mad dash at the end to lynch someone. That's a GAFia day 1.

I prefer the puns and jokes though. Keeps us fresh and rolling.

For some reason I read batsnacks's reveal in the opening post as batsnacks being the fake death that gets a town role PM posted. I was confused when batsnacks started actually posting.

Also IIRC "beloved" is a prefix that sometimes means town gets two lynches the day after the beloved person is killed. Or if the beloved person is scum, scum gets two NKs the next night. There's also a variant where if the "beloved" person dies, there is no scum NK that night.

Or it could just be a take on "Innocent", where the person's alignment is revealed at the beginning. Or a combination.

game is early, but I have to be up in a few hours for work. I'll be on tomorrow if work is slow, but it will be on mobile.

my only question would be what type of discussion do we have to do? I feel like I'm so out of the loop.

We try to discuss who is acting like they're trying to evade suspicion, or who are missing in action, or who are trying to set up others. On Day 1, basically it's a hit or miss since everyone doesn't have a clue how to proceed and we almost always lynch a townie.

Now the townie is lynched, night comes. Someone will most probably die. Now the next day phase, we try to see if there are connections to why someone was chosen to be killed, who that person spoke to, who they voted for, their reads, etc, etc.

Reads are your list of people who you think are either scum, town, or neutral. These are valuable, and if you withhold these, you'll probably be eyed by a lot of people by doing so. Asking for and giving reads is a valuable townie tool as scum find these hard to give out naturally.

There are a lot more things that could happen like certain powers manifesting, but I think that covers the basics for now.

tl;dr we try to discuss who's acting suspicious, throw out accusations, and find sense in the voting and the dead

typically this is actually not quite right. a beloved person would be town aligned, having them die (sometimes by any means, sometimes only by lynch) means that the next day phase is skipped. So its a negative utility role.

Also, personally I'm worried about batsnacks posts being overly centralizing during the day one cluster fuck. yes he's town, but if you are town that doesn't mean his opinions and reads should carry any more weight than your own. so let's not just sheep, yes?

also, cabot is being quiet.... which is a scum tell for him? no wait, thats my scum tell....I think scum cabot is more manipulative. so he's probably town. or drunk. or drunk town.

If he's spouting things that are factually incorrect or seemingly wrong, I say we should be worried if people are listening to him just because he's a confirmed townie.

From my experience in pizza mafia, this isn't too much of a concern. It can be slightly frustrating dealing with a confirmed townie who acts in a way you don't understand, but it doesn't derail the game. On the contrary, because batsnacks is confirmed town, we won't be derailed by people trying to lynch him for his strange behavior.

I don't see any negative consequences for having a confirmed townie, no matter how they act.

For new players, this bit is important to remember. Just because someone's town doesn't mean they're not completely wrong.

Although the one time I was an Innocent Child was also the only game I've played where my reads weren't total garbage
