    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    Went to the Lego store today with the intention of buying just the boat... left with the boat and the diner.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    Definitely want to "normalize" that boat to go with the Ideas Fishing Store.
  3. I'll choose to take that as a compliment.
  4. Well. Bennett Bulldog here. I read through the deadboard, and… oh. First of all, a huge thanks to Hinckley for hosting. Pictures were great, story was engaging, and threads were always up in a timely manner. I really enjoyed myself for the first five days, and was playing what I think has been one of my best games, second only to the Convention. I was particularly happy with Day 5, turning around a 4-1 lynch to nab a Monster, and that definitely vindicated my theories going into the last day. The way Brewer and Haydn were interacting seemed incredibly scummy, especially how they seemed to come out of the gate after me together and all that voting/unvoting at the end of the day. That being said, I never considered that the scum teams might be uneven. I also didn’t consider that Brewer could have executed two actions simultaneously – after the backlash from Pirates I really didn’t think that mechanic would appear again so soon. Not lynching the last day seemed to be the only course of action since I was absolutely convinced Haydn and Brewer were on the same team and Whitby was definitely Hellion, which would have made scum killing each other in the night the only way for town to win. Only having one kill the night before wasn;t a big deal to me – it seemed perfectly reasonable that both killers could have gone after the same person, with so few people remaining. I’d also like to apologize to whoever played Haydn. By the end I was getting really irritated with you. I don’t entirely know why, but I had been suspicious of you all game and Brewer’s flip seemed to me to confirm my theory was correct. I couldn’t understand your behavior on the last day, and I really thought you must be so irritated with me as well that you would hand Whitby the win just so I couldn’t have it. You can read the day thread and the anti-Hellion writeboard, but my attitude and some of my comments directed at Haydn were definitely out of line. That brings me to proxy voting. Proxy voting makes sense in early game, maybe, when as Hinckley said people might be restricted from voting due to time zones, schedules and such, but when its down to three and it seemed to me Haydn was proxying for the sole purpose of making sure I didn’t win it really ticked me off, and I don’t think that should have been allowed. I also have a confession to make. I’m a high school senior, and I won’t turn 18 until next week, yet I’ve been active on Eurobricks for years. I’ve even hosted two mafia games. I haven’t been as active over the last year, I skipped out on Kintober’s game, and I haven’t MOC’d anything in a long time. Between my part-time job, school, sports, applying to colleges, and the general stress that comes with all the loose ends that have to tied up to finish up high school my time has been extremely limited. Yet I’ve been championing anonymous games to revive mafia for a long time, and I couldn’t not sign up for back-to-back anonymous games by Bob and Hinckley. That’s legendary. I got accepted to dual study bioengineering and pre-medicine at a school in Texas, and I will be moving there next year, but there’s a lot of stress and cost that is associated with that transition, and these last few weeks have been particularly frustrating in that arena. Add in finals and missing an entire week of class to take AP tests, and you have a recipe for disaster. I fear I may have misdirected some of that pent-up frustration into this game, especially at Haydn’s perceived obstinance, and for that I am very sorry. Hinckley can feel free to post the PM I sent him after I was lynched, and his very kind response, if he wishes, but I think I will be taking a nice long break from Mafia. I wish you all the best.
  5. Deeply saddened to hear the news. While I signed up too late and was a reserve, following Ragnorak 3 was what got me into mafia. TPRU was truly a titan of the EB community, and his presence will be missed.

    Pirates Mafia - Conclusion

    Why didn’t Chapman die when he investigated Henry?

    Pirates Mafia - Conclusion

    The anonymity was great, thanks for hosting Bob! I thought Malcolm and I’s Mason claim was fairly airtight, so I see now why Patrick stopped talking to me. But on that note... to put it bluntly I think it’s kind of stupid to lose because the “block leader” got recruited, as is the ability to execute two actions in one night. There’s a certain expectation that people and actions are 1:1 and when that changes trying to puzzle out night actions is just a mess. I kept playing over and over the alibi’s for the last six of us, and everyone had a perfectly reasonable case for being town. I just regret getting tunnel vision on Jack, sorry Kristel! I was completely convinced he had to be the Godfather and after that flip I pretty went “alright I officially guess I have no idea how to play mafia anymore” (though it has been a while!) I thought Thomas was Khscarymovie, Patrick was mostlytechnic, and my buddy Malcolm was jluck (all wrong!) but beyond that I didn’t really bother to guess anyone. Defeats the point of anonymity!

    24 Mafia - Conclusion: 7pm to 8pm

    Thanks for hosting. Too bad I died before I had a chance to do anything! This is the second time I’ve had a big town PR and died immediately...
  12. For what’s its worth you were awesome in Trial by Jury and I’ll be sad to see you go @Kwatchi I do agree this community in particular has a bit of a metagaming problem and I think a truly anonymous game (Harriet Slutter rerun?) would be fantastic for energizing both old and new players, and lynches truly would have a better chance to go down based on what’s said rather than who’s saying it.

    24: Mafia - Hour 1: 9am to 10am

    I don't like the Senator. Something about those politicians rubs me the wrong way, reading too much into bandwagons and stuff Day 1. I also don't like lynching Day 1, but the rules so we have to vote. Vote: Senator Greene (Khscarymovie4)

    24: Mafia - Hour 1: 9am to 10am

    Ridiculous! Only a mole would lie like that! Wait a second... Either way I don’t really like lynching Day 1. I haven’t in my previous lives and I don’t see any reason this life should be different. Prefer to let people who are into that sort of thing have at least one night of sneaking around and see what they stumble across first.
