Tonight? As in after the dunk today? Entirely depends on who todayís dunk is.

As things stand right now if you told me I could eliminate one player right now? I donít like or trust Sal chiming in to answer questions he wasnít asked. So probably Sal.

and this is because voting for more than 3 different people would be literally the least helpful thing late-game. and i cant double-vote on anyone. MAYBE my update would be that, but its not worth hunting a specific country who may very well be town. but if russia happens to die, i'll claim what the upgrade was.

2 penny bottle imp posted:

Lol so you've already claimed your ability + your target. Real nice. You sure youre not scum?

I feel like claiming anything about your desired target or who you are does nothing but help scum narrow down their night kill choices. While it'd be nice to have free upgrades i honestly would rather not know which player my target is because it might confuse me when i'm looking for actual baddies.

Utterances and choices about other players (or avoiding mentioning other players) creates a web of connections and evidence and behavior on the record by which alignment can be discerned. Content creates the basis for seiriousvotes and this kills the jokephase.

I am a fan of this, the jokephase part of games is always awful for me. More please

Thatís my read on it at this juncture, yes.

Given the willingness to demonstrate, my read is that thereís less scum motivation to divulge that info D1 than there is town motivation to. Iím having trouble seeing where giving up that info that readily as scum helps his wincon- but I guess weíll see how it develops.

Do you feel differently?

Could be trying to reduce the chance of a roleblock or track though by proving they don't have a night ability, so they can do the NK. Scum could be in all kinds of odd positions here with a role madness random setup - could be tricky passing up an action to get a NK in. Not convinced though.

Yeah, as steak said though we now know his upgrade target

this is interesting too because let's say russia gets executed - steak's going to either be a big NK target or we're going to be looking at him real suspiciously when he lives the night. So I kind of agree that revealing the target looks towny

probably hambeet or steak at the moment because they'd talk a whole bunch about their target, so you gain two sets of info.

I gotta pad my post count.

I'm a big fan of the Content Game. It's been great for my notes. Definitely something I'm going to apply moving forward as I haven't played many games and am very bad at this.

I'm leaning scum on RF and Sal. Lots of jokes and dodging the sacred Content Game.

Charms could even be scum. He's playing how I played the first time I was scum. It would also explain why Sal answered for him.

I think Steak and Lumpen are town and the Townie Slapfight comment was perfect. I am curious to know how Lumpen plays as scum. Does he still try to push for Content Games?

IllegallySober reads town right now too.

I'm not really sure about everyone else.

Well, it's a hypothetical and I don't want to vig anyone but Sal is the most suspicious to me behind RF. Obvious choices there, especially if you read my long post. I'd pass it to Lumpen or IllegallySober based on the fact that theyre the only ones who really read town and know how to play the game, unlike the poster above me. Which again would be obvious if you read my long post.

What is your answer and do you have any reads?

All youve said about Sal is that he made jokes and passed on the content game (which I think is a silly concept btw).

RF dodged the content game and Sal answered for him with a joke. He also answered for Charms, which to me could be evidence that he's helping his scumbuddy. Same thing for RF.

Why do you think the content game is silly? It seems like a great way to generate discussion that could be used to find scum.
