MOCK DRAFT

Mock Draft Contest to make it simpler (second number is tiebreaker).

A: 1,1
B: 1,4
C: 1,1
D: 3,7
E: 5,9
F: 5,2
G: 7,1
H: 2,4
I: 2,7
J: 9,8
K: 6,9
L: 6,7
M: 5,6

Final Draft Order:

1. D (3,7) (one person picked the number)
2. G (7,1)
3. J (9,8)
4. H (2,4) (two people picked the number)
5. I (2,7)
6. L (6,7)
7. K (6,9)
8. B (1,4) (three people pick the number)
9. C (1,1 wins dice roll)
10. A (1,1 loses dice roll)
11. F (5,2)
12. M (5,6)
13. E (5,9)

Simple, right?

Ok Iím still not convinced but Iím assuming that I would say ďunconfirmed masonĒ as a role and there are 5 available, not that I need to say ďI want to be unconfirmed mason C; unconfirmed mason D and E are available but someone already took C so my role is taken :(,Ē right?

Does this question make sense? Letters?

I'll be co-mod 6 if it means I can just setup the spectator stuff instead of continuously poking you to do it. Easier than trying to write a goonproof guide and I will be wanting to spectate again.

No, you need to pick "Grandi-SiV Memorial Mason A" or "Grandi-SiV Memorial Mason C". If someone else picks that role, you don't get it. You only get to talk if someone else also gets one of the other roles. If three people pick "Grandi-SiV Memorial Mason A" then there will be one mason who is only talking to the co-mods.

ilmucche posted:

Correct. Usually you only get to pick one role, the secondary draft is something special for this game (and maybe should become a permanent fixture in these games).

If you want a role, you gotta stake your claim loudly. Say you are taking mason D or whatever and hope that is enough to push people off of it.
That's what SiV and I did last game, even though I was last in the draft order, I got the mason because SiV and I called it.
With 5 masons it should be easier to do.

It might be harder to push someone off of a vig than a mason, but its always worth a try.

Declaring you are taking 1,1 is another good gambit. If people believe you, they are less likely to take 1,1 because it is less valuable the more people who have it, but it's still 1,1 and if someone else doesn't go for it then you are first pick. A fun game of chicken.

Just to hammer this home. Here is a link to Voodoofly's last role draft. As you can see, I chose 1,1. I am going to do it again.

You may also choose 1,1 if you would like a higher chance of being Vanilla because we both fall down the role draft. It does not bother me either way.

I fully expect you to go 1,1. I am aware that it is unlikely a bluff. I have never gone 1,1, but now I want to see 1,1 critical mass. The whole game picking 1,1 would make me so very happy.
I am picking 1,1. If this makes us low in the draft order, then so be it.
Let the social experiment begin.

Only read this bit if you are merk
If you swerve off and don't pick 1,1 I will be very disappointed in you.
