I find it interesting that you believe there is an optimal play in a situation where there's no play. Do you read my non-mafia-related posts as well and look at their timestamps, thinking "IcyTea31 had enough time that he could have posted in Mafia. Why didn't he? Clearly, because he is scum who doesn't want to engage with my masterfully crafted argument!"?

If your answer is yes, I'm flattered about the attention, but I think you're either lying or a psychopath with a lack of the theory of mind, and an inability to see subtext in writing.

If your answer is no, why aren't you playing what you consider optimal town game, dolores?

I would recommend swimming in seawater rather than wine. There's a feeling of life to it and it sticks to you much less afterwards, being much less sugary and easier to wash off, and will even help with any past stains left by wine.

If the game was active? Yeah.
If you were scum though, I'd generally prefer you didn't engage with my arguments if they are well crafted. Shining a light on someone and then letting it fill up with votes is easier.

Right now, the level of your activity in this thread is itself part of what I am investigating. After all, there's no real commitment or reason to post here right now. So if you do post now, anymore that you post when the game is active could be considered to be additional effort you've put into the game itself, which can then be considered within the context.

Oh, there certainly is a reason to post here right now. I'm surprised you've missed it.

It's fun?
I dunno. You'll have to enlighten me.

I won't have to. It should catch up to you in about 3 hours by itself.

Jesus Christ, just start the game. !in, my cards are Mystical Elf, Harpy Girl and... I don't know... Petit Dragon. I will not send a PM because I'm lazy, my choices don't matter, I'm on a phone, I don't care, and this has been in sign-ups for-fucking-ever. Take it or leave it.

Once I've got everything done, yeah. Saturday-Sunday-Monday. 1 of those, within the week.

Assuming everyone is here in a week when we start-
How many new players do we have?
Should I prepare some IC style boilerplate for D1?

I recognize more than half of the people here, so I'm assuming it's not going to be too bad in terms of out and out not understanding what makes for productive activity

Well, I'm not entirely new to the concept, but most of my knowledge comes from Town of Salem, which IIRC isn't precisely accurate.

I've had more experience playing mafia IRL, on Town of Salem, and on EpicMafia. I'm familiar with the concepts of how to play in forum mafia, though.
