I've been enjoying following ongoing Mafia games lately, and I keep seeing references to certain old games that were ridiculous. What are some good/iconic old games to read over?

I love this game and this community but I also hate it and it so much.

What's a way to say "if you hire me you will make a good choice" without sounding dumb? Working on a cover letter for a really great job.

"I believe my skills and experience make me an excellent fit for the position" is generally a good way to go.

"I hope to hear from back from you soon because this opportunity is really exciting for me and I believe I can make a difference to your company"

preface: i work in corporate so this is colored by that bias

But this is a little more informal than I would prefer in a cover letter. Remove the "this opportunity... me and" phrase and it's a good way to go as well, but you had better be drat sure you've outlined HOW you can make that theoretical difference.

I asked for a specific role from LM and he didn't give it to me and instead conscripted me night 1 and I requested a replacement and he said "nay."

For all the complaining you do about the death of SA mafia, even as a relative newcomer to the community your conduct in LM's game was pretty awful, and this is coming from someone who replaced out of it. You came in, made one post to take another player out of the game without making any apparent effort to actually take the game itself into account, and then did nothing else till you were modkilled. How is this conducive to anything constructive?

Also while I have Mostly Quit Drinking this is a good tip for y'all:

If you're at an open bar and you want to get good stuff, one your first visit to the bar tip the bartender a 10 or 20. You'll get nice pours all night and, if you're lucky, some good stock at the end of the evening.

This is a pro tip that I received from my now-father-in-law and have used to great effect at multiple weddings.

I did that at an open bar at one point, and then went back to the same venue months later. The bartender recognized me and immediately poured me another of the same beer I had been drinking the first time.

I mean, I could have been laughably and memorably drunk the first time, but it's still pretty telling.
