max should stick to organizing legions and leave mafia to the experts!!

yeah it SHOULD have been deciding between hats and leatherman (which would have been a very interesting endgame since hats wasn't around as much but leatherman was around and looking Smart Townie after recommending a no-hang). but alas.

I was going to do this but Hats had like, zero content and with Quandary being so adamant about not going with BK yesterday, I was super certain he was scum.

Hats was gone and I had a hell of a time deciding between him and FL. After what looked like a meltdown from you I thought I had you cornered.

Because he 100% knew that SSV was scum without a doubt, how was that not obvious?

I mean, I knew that was the narrative. But I thought the plan to see about nailing the other scum first was a good idea and we all agreed on BK anyway.

I really tried to look Smart Townie with all those numbers and if I hadnt screwed up all the math it would have looked a lot better :\

You played a really good game and I think I got too paranoid for my own good this game. I may have not been so swayed towards Quandary if he hadn't completely flipped out at the BK lunch but what are you gonna do. It's my fault in the end.

I had just seen Quandary's plea to me and FL, and had started my reread :(

But yeah, I'm not free of blame, I was way too disengaged this game. I need to limit myself to one game at once.

FYI and for the future (because please don't retire again!), but this is not something any scum does when their buddy gets investigated. one of the hard things playing scum is scum *know* when their buddy has been successfully discovered (or conversely *know* when their buddy is discovered improperly [e.g. that a town is mistaken]). and since that's what they know, they never seriously doubt those results.

going hard against SSV in lieu of BK does not make sense from a casual scum perspective, but makes perfect sense from a (somewhat myopic) town perspective. it should have suggested Quandary was the one telling the truth.

it's also why I figured Jose was town. he wouldn't have focused so hard on imgay and draw a lot of attention and ire from people if he had been scum.

anyway gg scum, glad I made you think I was a cop, pig run more of these mafia is fun.

I fully agree :eng99: I requested a replacement, unfortunately it's going to be like a week before I'm going to have any reliable ability to contribute to the game. Sorry about that, all.

I had a scum read on Hats until this explanation but this changed my mind because it sounds like something town-me would say.

My two biggest reads right now based on general feel are BK and SSV.

Hahaha ahhh man apparently I'm better at picking scum when I'm half-engaged than I am when I try.

I like it because it lets me focus more on casing and argument. That said, role heavy games are fun too, just in a different way.
