So this is going to sound hella , largely because it is hella , but hear me out: what you just saw there was a hard play for victory by the Cool Kids' Table. I wasn't ever in any danger.

Winvirus et al figured I might be desperate enough to save my own skin to basically hand them the game, thus the "give us your list or die" offer. Winvirus would have switched his vote to himself... And then the rest of the conspiracy would have switched their vote to Somberbrero. Whether MMM is an active participant or just a pawn, here, I don't know.

This gets them both Somberbrero's word and my word. Ideally, they wanted my list as well, which would have hard-screwed a couple of you. Instead, they'll just have to settle for their five-man alliance wiping out the rest of us one day at a time while they sit on either merk's or PoP's word.

Well played, gentlemen. My hat is off to you.

So, for those of you who are sitting with the Cool Kids' Table at this point, I'd just like to mention that in all likelihood they were using winvirus' word to get you to give them yours, and that is no longer useful. So, if you can't get merk or PoP's word through any other means (and it's unlikely you can), you're going to have to get them through voting them off.

I'm just saying, I am open to offers. And if you were wondering, yes, this is a desperation ploy.

I have given winvirus' word to zero people. I also think this Cool Kid's Table thing you're advancing is disingenuous at this point. You thought I was somehow linked to Byers and I happily voted him off. I sent a total of 2-3 private messages to PoP.

The only person I've spoken with a lot is winvirus. I've also had some light conversations with Rarity, Strong Mouse, and one PM from Hal.

I'm not really allied with anyone.

I'll be voting Thanos tomorrow. Connecting him is a waste since we'll get his word anyway. Connect with me for real negotiations.

I have lied zero times this game. Thanos has lied... a lot... it appears.

Right, you're not allied with anyone, and neither is winvirus, or PoP, or Strongmouse.

You just have an understanding; completely different. An understanding that means you know your vote for me means I'm going down. But totally not an alliance; totally.

I still have a word or two to trade that aren't mine; to the non-merk members of the game: even if you're confident I'm going to die, there's still a good chance I can make it worth your while. And since I'm going down, I've got nothing to lose. Merk hasn't even told anyone his word yet. He's sitting pretty, and has virtually no incentive to give anyone anything.

Because that's when the day deadlines are...? Then the night deadline will be tomorrow.

And apparently this is going to be a "wait until the deadline to vote" game regardless of my best efforts.
