    Main Street Mafia 2 - Conclusion

    I used the one-shot Night One, as I said to Bob when selecting Zeph, it's going to be no use if I'm dead later on. I was surprised to have been the first to be killed.

    Thanks for hosting Bob, well done to the Scum team. I tried to use my one-shot investigation on night one, but was killed.

    Main Street Mafia 2 - Day One

    It all seems pretty cordial so far, everyone seems to be on the same page like beavers building a dam. I will vote: Joyce (jimmynick) as we want to spread the vote out, but also because they haven't said a lot since this ordeal started and we need everyone to contribute.

    I am also happy for a no lynch this first day. We shouldn't run like a bull in a china shop.

    Main Street Mafia 2 - Day One

    I would agree that 2 Mafiosi hiding in our midst is likely, given that there are 8 of us in the Main Street Commerce Guild. They are like sabre-toothed blennies blending into our school of normal fish, just waiting to pounce. Therefore the chance of us not getting the vote right is 75%. If we vote off a loyal Commerce Guild member and then the Mafiosi take one of us out in the night, we will have had a really bad start to this ordeal. It is definitely a conundrum. However, our votes are important and we shouldn't forget that they can also provide us with some illumination in days to come, both in terms of alignment and also how people react to them.

    Main Street Mafia 2 - Day One

    A mandatory vote with very little to go on, we will be like deep sea fish in the depths. Voting may be mandatory but we don't necessarily have to get the 5 votes needed for a lynch. With only 8 of us, do we err on the side of caution like the mighty elephant? It may be difficult to reach a consensus today anyway, with nothing to go on.

    Those Mafiosi are worse than animals! And if you would like a pet in these trying times, come on over to the pet shop!

    Main Street Mafia 2 - Sign Ups!

    Be good to play with Hinckley again, he passed me in his Fabuland Housewives Mafia School, which according to the Mafia games index was May 2011. Also great to see Zeph who I played a lot with in the original Heroica game.

    I would love to play another Bob game. I hope there is the interest in it, this forum section seems to be quiet these days.

    Nice one Bob, it has been very quiet here recently. I always enjoy your games.
  11. I think having the Dark Side Cave scene with Luke versus Vader in the Yoda's Training set would be superb, it's a key scene in Empire and one that we haven't had before, to my knowledge.

    Pirates Mafia IV - Conclusion

    That was my first Mafia game since The Pearl, which was also run by Bob, probably about 9 years ago Was lovely to see some old faces still, and the new guys played well. All in all, a nice few weeks, thanks everyone.

    Pirates Mafia IV - Conclusion

    Yes to be fair it wasn't until right near the end that we really twigged who the Scum were. Tariq and Duvors did a great job blending in and watching us lynch Townie after Townie! Even with 4 of us left and proof that Duvors must be the last one, it was only that method of elimination and not really anything specific. I couldn't find a smoking gun in the vote analysis!

    Pirates Mafia IV - Conclusion

    It was the cumulative effect of the protection that was throwing us all off I think. Great job to JintaiZ, it really blunted the Scum. But it relies on both the doc and the killer targeting the same person, in a small game like this, that was more likely to happen? But as I said to Jack and JintaiZ in PM, if we had lynched a Townie day one, the Vig killed a Townie and the Scum killed one, we could have lost almost half the players in one go and it would have been easy for the Scum to get parity maybe even the next day with a poor lynch.

    Oh wow, thank you JintaiZ! We had dismissed that as being unlikely. Bob, are you going to show roles/night actions? I'm guessing there wasn't actually a blocker? It was driving us crazy.

    Yes! Great win guys! Will have more to say later, but thank you for the game Bob.

    Pirates Mafia IV - Day Five

    Mr Blake with his own hammer vote! Not somethin ye see every day! Still, out of all the remainin crew, ye are the one I trust least, so I will make it a clean sweep and maybe we can sail on to calmer waters. Vote: Murphy Blake (Duvors)

    Pirates Mafia IV - Day Five

    Wow I think we have broken Mr Blake. I'm sure there still be rum in the stores, as long as Miss Pierce never drank it all, that is. The woman had a terrible thirst for it. Go help yourself to some, I will maintain the sails.

    Pirates Mafia IV - Day Five

    Time for more vote analysis, with 2 more confirmed crew, especially useful now we have a Scum in there: Day One (No Lynch): Vote Count with votes/unvotes in the timeline Harper Lawson (Rumble Strike) - 0 (JintaiZ) Murphy Blake (Duvors) - 1 (JintaiZ, Kaanere, Duvors) Noah Nelson (JintaiZ) - 4 (Duvors, Rumble Strike, Jack Sassy, Darkdragon, Tariq j) Spencer Milford (KotZ)- 0 (JintaiZ) Douglas Wembley (Darkdragon) - 3 (KotZ, JintaiZ, Duvors) Day Two: Vote Count with votes/unvotes in the timeline Douglas Wembley (Darkdragon) - 5 (Rumble Strike, JintaiZ, JintaiZ, Tariq j, Kaanere, KotZ) Noah Nelson (JintaiZ) - 1 (Darkdragon) Kieran Newport (Tariq j) - 1 (Duvors) Vivian Pierce (Kaanere) - 0 (JintaiZ) Murphy Blake (Duvors) - 1 (Jack Sassy) Day Three: Vote Count with votes/unvotes in the timelineSpencer Milford (KotZ) - 4 (Duvors, JintaiZ, Jack Sassy, Rumble Strike, JintaiZ)Noah Nelson (JintaiZ) - 1 (KotZ)Vivian Pierce (Kaanere) - 1 (Tariq j, JintaiZ) Day Four: Vote Count with votes/unvotes in the timeline Vivian Pierce (Kaanere) - 5 (penalty, penalty, JintaiZ, Duvors, Jack Sassy, Tariq j)Kieran Newport (Tariq j) - 1 (Rumble Strike)Murphy Blake (Duvors) - 1 (Jack Sassy) Noah Nelson (JintaiZ) - 1 (Kaanere)  What can we glean from this? Mr Newport would have been the hammer on Mr Nelson on Day One, but Mr Blake took off his vote, removing the majority. I can't see a Scum hammerin another Scum Day One, especially when there are only 2 of them. With Mr Nelson's erratic behaviour, is Mr Blake's unvote a Scum ploy to keep in play a Townie who is confusin the rest of the ship? Is this why Mr Newport was surprised when I said I had reached an accord with him the next day? Was the potential discord worth more than getting rid of a Townie with such a small crew? Day Two,Mr Newport is squarely in the middle of the Wembley votin, whilst Mr Blake votes for Mr Newport, keepin off the Wembley bandwagon, citin some of my reasonin that he seemed a bit too 'middle of the road'. That vote manages two things - keeps off a Town bandwagon and enables him to point and say 'I voted for Scum, if I was Scum why would I do that?'. Admittedly, you can throw this argument at meself on Day Four as well. Interesting that on Day Three, the last four surviving crew are all there, on a Town lynch. 3 are Town, 1 Scum. Mr Newport votes somewhere else, Scum spreadin their votes around. Day Four, easy to get a Townie with penalty votes lynched, Mr Blake is the hammer with Mr Newport following afterwards, maybe feelin he has to do this as he voted for her Day Three. More Scum on the Pierce bandwagon? They separated out Days Two and Three. Mr Nelson is a stone cold Townie lyncher, he's got three Town in a row.

    Yarr, that be great work by the Vig, finally a Scum is caught and sent to Davy Jones locker! I have to say I am not surprised Miss Pierce was Town, I did have my doubts about it and voted for Mr Newport, not to toot me own horn there. Now there can only be 1 traitor left, or we'd be at parity. I know where my vote is goin.

    Pirates Mafia IV - Day Four

    It be a bit late to try and change the crews minds on this, and it's not like Miss Pierce has come out swingin with any kind of defense or ideas as to who else we should lynch, but I had this thought earlier. Do ye all not think that if Miss Pierce were Scum and part of a team, that she'd not get herself into a position where she has penalty votes which makes it easier for her to be voted off? I said before that I found it unlikely a Scum team would sit back and let her talk so infrequently the rest of us end up findin her suspicious. I find it just as unlikely that they would just watch her not talk or vote for a whole Day. If you're Scum, you do try to keep under the radar but not to that extent because it is puttin yourself in jeopardy. I dunno, maybe I am overthinkin this, I am just not that confident now that we are on the right track.
