Welcome to the REAL Mini VI spectator thread. Accept no substitutes or fakes that you may have seen in the past.

Be a good person and remember that players still have feelings too.

I usually lean town on Fanto quite early but this time I'm second guessing myself.
Maybe it's just me being paranoid, but he seems a bit more cautious in his reads than in other games.

Kinda forgot this had started!

Didn't read the whole thread, but my skim sick ™ reads for now is that Fantomas and Chuggs are scummy. I can see the Verelios wagon being pure as well as Vere's push for turmoil at the end didn't really seem sincere. Zipped and Maol look fine, though Vere and Maol could be partners.

Looking forward for D2 now haha.

Nice, now I might stand a chance of finishing Luigi's Mansion before Pokémon comes out - thank you, mystery assassin! I was expecting to be in for a rough ride today, as the moment Exodus flipped town I could see how suspect my vote looked. I was suspicious of Mao voting for Exodus at the same time as me, but couldn't say as such because... well, y'know. So going in, Fanto and Mao had gone down in my estimations, and I still don't feel good about Turmoil voting for over half of the players in one day.

My plan for today was to offer up my vig shot in N2 - if a consensus could be reached about thunderdoming two players, I'd propose that if the one voted out flipped town, I'd shoot the other. If they flipped scum, I'd stay my hand and accept getting flipped to prove I wasn't a bus driver if necessary. (If they flipped SK... I'd have probably shot anyway.)

On that note, given that I know I didn't shoot anyone last night, that suggests that - unless there's another vig - someone may well have rolled SK this time. Will be interesting to see what explanation for the second kill takes off.

I'm sad you died now :(

Ah well, better to be shot than voted out, I think. Actually, this is first time getting NK'd - it's a bit of a relief, compared to having to talk myself out my vote!

I feel like we often yell at the lone wolf who votes offwagon and I really can't think of a single occasion when it was a town vote at EoD and someone scum was offwagon (unless they were purposely trying to get town cred by saying the top wagon was town). I'm sure it's happened. But Vere there looks townie to me. And I feel like that attack is a common misstep.

This one may stick out to me particularly because it's how I died in my first game, but.
 
Oh, didn't think of checking here before asking at Era.

Did you kill me Alexem? Yet to read this thread but I thought we had a nice exchange or two. Edit; Oh, so it wasn't you? Nice to know you aren't evil.

Fanto, Vere and Brian feel suspicious. Fanto especially, after what he tried to pull yesterday and his Ketkat comment starting this phase. A bit wary of turmoil too.

Chuggs reads towny, Ketkat too. Mao and Soneji are in a weird null zone.

Anyways, that was fun! And I chuckled at the flip flavor, even though I've never read/watched SAO. Thank you, Stu and Donna.

I think this was our first game together Reki - sorry it was only for a phase. I was never counting on taking a shot on N1 - too many townies in play and not enough information to make a good decision on. My original plan was to see if I could stick it out to N3, but things changed before then. And then I got shot.

I am town Roleblocker, and I chose to block Alexem last night. I based it on the weak defense for the potential vote flip at the end of day. I'll be completely honest, I didn't even entertain blocking anyone else at the time.
If it's true, then Zipped's missed the meta about me being an overly cautious git. Which I am. Of course, there's the small matter that if he blocked me and I really did try to shoot someone, I'd have learned about a blocker when my shot got refunded... but now I'm just going into WIFOM territory, so I'll leave them to figure it out.
 
And that's why last minute 'go wild' trains never work. (I'm not biased because I was on the receiving end of one in Sneakers Mafia. Nope. Not at all.)

Lol, I just hope town calms down and thinks things through. Today was really just pushing a slow ball through to the goal and didn't have much activity.

Town’s gonna town after all.

It was a weekend phase, but it was still a very “defaulted” lynch. Let’s see if town picks up next phase.

If things had worked out differently, Turmoil was my front-runner for my shot in the first half of D1. I had no intention of shooting on N1, even before the flip, but his keenness to get a train going put me on edge. Also: town-aligned SK's got to be up there with town hooker as a claim.

(Turmoil, this had better not have been about me suspecting you before DCPat in Brexit 2. Cause, like, soz and all if it was.)
 
Since Soneji claimed Vanilla, Zipped is confirmed town. I don't understand why scum wouldn't block or kill him though?

The conspiracy in me says that Fanto is actually scum and there is only a two person scum team. However right now Mao and especially Brian look most suspicious for their push on a Turmoil lunch.

SK is kingmaker should town actually rally and keep the votes all on one scum player.

I roleblocked turmoil7 last night, bad call? Maybe, but it’s the only one that also accounted for the off chance that Fantomas is the only remaining scum and it was a two member scum team

stu, what did you roll for this game? Can you send spoilers?
 
Oh, that was quick. I'd had voted turmoil just so he couldn't win though.

Edit: If he is nice and they magically pull this off though...

Brian was so obviously scum, if they hadn't voted him I would have been so mad.

I guess Mao is the last scum. There is no way town!Mao would lunch Turmoil if that is the guaranteed victory for Scum.
 
Looks like Town gets to be Kingmaker.

Both Scum and SK can only win if the other faction survives the night and Town decides to help them.

Well, didn't think they'd get away with it - good shot! Also - Brian, that was a good run for your first game of forum mafia. Even after playing IRL mafia before, I can't imagine rolling scum in your first game in a new format can be easy, so well done for making it to D4.

1SK, 1 Scum, 3 Town currently.

Scum is Soneji, Turm is SK.

Currently, Fanto is checking Maol, Turm is killing Fanto and I'm waiting on Soneji to post in scum chat

And that's why you've got to watch the quiet ones. Nice to know that one of my two votes was on scum, even if it was a prod!

They already nailed it, but I wonder if the phase taking this long to start could be used as an - unfair - indicator that it's Soneji, the only one remaining that wasn't there at day's end today. Of course it all depends on who he targets, and he'll probably want to think this one through.

Also turmoil you meanie, for a second I thought you'd actually help town.

Oh I definitely had fun, I just feel like I played really bad all game. Definitely one of my worst Town performances, if not the worst, as evidenced by the multiple people in here and in the game thread who were Scum reading me. Wasn't sure of any of my reads except my absolutely terrible read on Vere, which I realized was wrong by EoD but literally didn't have any other reads to go for, everything else I said was just bullshit and me trying to cover up for the fact that my read list was just Scum: Vere, Town: Everyone Else. The only reason I was able to get the correct list of Scum put together yesterday was because everyone else had died, the claims added up, and there were only so many players left for Scum to be a part of. My reads coming into yesterday were just "I don't know, Stan seems scummy, everyone else seems Townie, so fuck me I'm bad at this game."

Not a bad thing, when cop, you want to make sure you're scummy enough to not be NK'd but not so scummy that you become a major lunch contender lol.

I'm tired so about to go to bed. I'm sure they will turbo it while we're asleep so we'll take care of the game stuff tomorrow when we wake up.

Im a tad bummed by that, it felt like we were doing realky good (as a team i mean, my goose was pretty cooked) only for the whole team to be semi exposed just from the game state.
Well i finally got to play scum in a way that was impeded in some way so that was fun.

What?!?

scum tried to kill Turmoil7?

i think this makes it possible for a town win. Seriously what the hell?!?

All scum had to do was NOT block turmoil and kill Fantomas.
