Okay check my logic on this, even if we think someone is the jester, it's better to kill them D1 so there's less chance he'll hit the king, right?

What I was breadcrumbing is that discussing voting strategy, that is ways to fake out the assassin by voting/not voting for certain people, is probably not a good idea. If you've got some clever plan keep it to yourself. The reasoning is that there's only one assassin, and he/she will have to think up every single plan in order to spot all of them, and there's a decent probability that one mind working on its own won't be able to come up with all possible permutations of strategy that five minds do.

So if anyone were to call for 'let's talk about strategy' I would take that as a strong scumtell. Obviously saying that out loud would invalidate the whole strategy somewhat.

Anyway... I still think Bowmore is jester, and I don't have any other reads I'm confident enough in to give right now, so... if you're still going to hammer me, then :salute: go town, and good luck

This is right. This is a weird game in that I think any extended strategy discussion probably advantages jester+assassin more than anyone else. I guess we all have to primarily go off gut feeling.

LET ME HAVE THIS ONE OKAY

I'm new and I treasure every correct read because I've got so few of them

Anyway. Down to five... I'd really like to pick out the assassin now before it gets down to the last four or three and the odds go up of them simply being able to win by guessing. I have a gut feeling that I can figure this out with a bit of time and thought.

Oh! Okay then!

Opopanax takes a daring shot at MiltonSlavemasta. He was a Guard.

Opopanax was executed for murder and attempted regicide. The King, CapitalistPig, and the rest of the Guards have won the game.

Thanks for playing guys!

Had this in the general thread.

Met posted:

It was a small game and I think only one person was really lacking in posts compared to everyone else.

Its a rough variant to get going because the optimal strategy for the King and Guards seems to be shutup and random lynch so they don't give the Assassin any information which isn't conducive to an exciting game. The Jester was meant to remedy that a bit by creating a punishment for unwise lynching.

Still though, 7 might have been a bit low. I'm sure there's a sweet spot. Probably 10-12 players. Maybe I'll try it again in half a year or so.

Might want to reply to it in there if you have anything to say. They're having some weird cartoon sex discussion that needs to be swept away.

It wasn't necessary to shoot before your death though, Opop! Maybe you wouldn't have gotten a better read if you waited until after your death.
