Hmm. Interesting. I have to say, WhiteFang had me duped, but I suspected the rest of the scummies. Especially Big Cam. He was obvious. You will learn, young one.
I somehow had a gut feeling Shadows was once again Scum, but I kept telling myself "He's a kid, he can't be scum." but once again I survived up until the day before the conclusion.

A subtle hint that was missed on Day Five was with the tree, when I said burning it down was intentionally done.

Most of the time, gasoline is used when burning something down, pointing to either Gas Station Attendant. Of course, this was also missed over.

Sandy, I hope you won't get too personal with me the next time. My forehead don't spelt scum on it.  :grin:

Actually, I figured you were scum just based on the fact that in all the games I've played with you, you've always been a townie. When was the last time you were a bad guy in these games, anyway?

But worry not, I've learned to get past my prejudices. Except with Shadows. He's always a sly bastard no matter what side he plays. :tongue:

Don't use probability to determine my alignment. It's not very healthy.  :classic:

Actually, I believe among the 9 games that I have played so far, this is my very first scum role ever in the mafia games played so far. It has really broaden my horizon and widen my perspective.

It was vaguely plausable reason,but none of you called me out on it. :P

The moment I saw that, I knew you were scum. There was no point me calling you out on it, since my goal for the day was getting Big Cam out. But really, the scum were so obvious towards the end. I still can't believe you voted out Quarryman for the booze, but I think that was a really fatal mistake on the hosts' part.

You are a simple mail man in Stapleton. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow shall stop you from doing your job. Enthusiastic, you occasionally chat with people; they feel they can trust you, because even though you have the power to look through their mail, you don’t.

You have no night actions, and are just a simple townie.

I didn't lie about metagaming, or I'm missing your point. I still think it's one of the worst mistakes a player can make, it's too easy to trick someone by acting differently, or worse yet, you metagame out a player who ends up being on your side and lose for it. It's a dangerous tactic in almost any situation and one I hate more than any other in the game.
Sorry, I meant about what you said in Noir, about hating being scum, and being so confused in this game. Those were the key words that you said that made me believe you.

And yeah, metagaming sucks. Even when you're not metagaming.

I knew you might catch on to me, but I would have just had you killed that night if I thought you were on to me. I didn't think you were, so you lived until the end. I always figured you'd be good for the Quarry vote, and you were. :grin:
Yeah, I really screwed up on that part. I should've stopped when you said "I'll vote for Quarry, but not Draggy".

5 scum out of 21 players. Many games start with 6. We were only able to use one conversion and that didn't take place until night 4. Daddylonglegs wasn't scum, he was neutral, but willing to work with us. :grin:
Ah, I didn't realize that DLL was converted neutral.

View PostInconspicuous, on Jan 9 2010, 01:56 AM, said:

The one thing that confuses me is that, isn't the serial killer technically guaranteed to win?  :wacko:
No, I actually think it's very hard to play as a neutral character (though I never have). You are completely alone, so if you begin to be voted off, you're pretty much screwed. You are as clueless as the townies in terms of who's on what side, so you have very little idea who to kill at night. You need to get rid of all of the scum or all of the townies, so it would be hard if you were killing some on each side by accident.

As I was reading this for the first time, I was thinking I was going to end up as the usurper of Boss Shadows. That would've made for a nice role reversal - the "meat-shielded becomes the meat-shielder", or something like that. :wacko:
If that was the case, I would be laughing at both of you. Remember where you put me in Noir?  :wink:

I must admit the last day, where Bob practically placed all of the scums down there, is indeed very dangerous for us scums, and somehow that clue wasn't pick up and I don't understand why everyone went after Quarryman so badly. Guess it was the "Prohibition" thingy caught him earlier with regards to the booze.
I just didn't think Bob and DL would be that obvious.  :wacko:

I was pretty sad, because you guys lost your investigator the first night.  :laugh:

Here's my bio...

You help your husband run the Stapleton Diner, a small little hangout of all the people of Stapleton. Recently, you’ve noticed an increase in Mob Activity. You took it upon yourself to inform the BOI about all the scum you find. You are the town’s investigator.

You also had a daughter with your husband and you named her Mary, She is 13 years old.
You are a townie.


Ricey, you made quite a mistake.  :wink:

I'm kind of glad it finished this early, I'm going on a camp tomorrow for a week, And would've wanted to see the results. :tongue:

First off I'd like to thank bob for co-hosting and saving my megablocks by taking over the taking of pics. :thumbup:

And thanks to everyone who signed up. :classic:

I'd also like to say that most of the mistakes were bobbo. just sayin' :laugh: , Although I had afew there too :tongue: , After all it was out first time to host and the first game that's been co-hosted.

Also from the begining we thought the scum might have the advantage. (After all, Who would suspect a 13 Year old mob boss, A female dancer who could block(Was a reference to my character in Noir :wink: ), A Cinema worker & a cop.). :tongue:


Anyway thanks again for everyone who participated, And I for one think we got some good new mafia players out of this. :classic:

I may have a longer post once i get back from camp, If anyone still gives a crap.

Ah yes, that was a good one. To be honest, I just like playing, but I do think that most of the time it's easier to be scum. You might lose, but you never feel as out of control as when you're loyal.

One of the secrets to playing good scum is to think loyal. How would I feel right now if I was loyal? What kinds of things would I be trying to use as evidence, excluding anything that might actually be helpful? What are the townies thinking and how can I support their incorrect beliefs? It makes the game a lot more fun once you get that down. :wink:

Of course, the other option is to fly low and avoid notice. I never get to do that, even when I try, so if you ever see me doing that, don't think anything of it, I just need a break. Or maybe I'm lying again. You'll have to wait and see, huh? :devil:

Oh and for the record...

This is your character:
Susan Webb (Townie)

You are a dancer, Every Friday night, you and Sarah Wolf go down to the Stapleton Diner, and sing and dance for the townsfolk. It’s the only thing that can lighten their moods in this time of despair. You have no night actions, and you are a simple townie.

You win when all the scum are dead or captured.

(If you have any questions please PM me and/or Bob)


So I made everybody happy on friday nights with sarah. Sarah I will get vengenance for betraying the name of dancer. I'd watch your back in future games...

As an outsider it's pretty informative to read this 'after-party' thread, especially with everyone's roles being posted and the experienced players' feedback on the game. I find it hard to follow a game by just reading the 'day'-threads. I guess it's more learning-by-doing and not so much by merely observing. Maybe I'll give it a go with ImperialScout's upcoming mafia-game.

Rick, it's much better for you to experience it yourself, in your role, so you are able to interact with one another and at the same time, trying to find out whom we really are. Glad you have been following up this game, and yes, it can be hard to follow, but once you have seen the ending/conclusion, it all make sense. Looking forward to your participation in the upcoming mafia game, and hope you will get selected.  :classic:
