Have I mentioned I will be joining the next round too?

EEEEDIT: By the way, TRS, if you're wishing to play this game as a player yourself too, you could gladly pass on the host role to somebody for a round or two.

With such a high player count, I'm thinking of reinstating the second Thug, as the Mafia's role tends to get more difficult as the number of players go up. However, I'm not sure if the player count is high enough as of yet.

Any thoughts?

I'm in favor.

I also wonder. Will we keep that investigating for the mafia? As we know, I was the thug last round, and they found me after the second investigation.

Not that it mattered all too much, since Sukasa was blatantly mafia.

If you add the second thug, that makes it a 6:10 ratio of mafia/thugs to bystanders, right? Seems fair. The other way to try and balance it is to alert the mafia to who the thug is. Doesn't change the player ratios, but adds a little more balance.

I'd go with the second option honestly.

While it doesn't change the ratios, it DOES give the mafia a bit more of an advantage.

Letting the Mafia know who the Thug is gives it a fairly major advantage, IMO... (and decreases the reason to use the "checking" ability rather substantially) I think a second Thug would be more fair.

Not really, checking does way more than tell you the thug. In fact, finding the thug is usually the least of your worries when checking, at least when I've been mafia.

I'll argue with you on this.

When I was the thug, I found a majority of what I was doing was just waiting for the mafia to find me.

Once they found me, not too much really changed, I basically just knew who to protect now.

Generally, you have an idea who mafia is anyway, so it works out.

I would think the mafia would want to find the sheriff, trapper, and other special bystanders first to get rid of them.

I'd much rather have two thugs instead of the thug knowing the mafia at once.

Having the thug know who the mafia would make him too much like an ordinary mafia member, the thing that makes him so interesting how he HAS to find out who the mafia is.

I'd also like it if the two thugs didn't know each other identities either.



But that's just my take on it.

Proposal to change the investigating rule for mafia.

When the mafia investigates, it will turn up THUG or NOT THUG, much like how the sheriff can only see MAFIA or NOT MAFIA.

As it stands, it gives the mafia a much bigger advantage only having to sit back and investigate every special player in the game.

Eventually they'll kill somebody, It's not like we need the game to move fast.

I support this. It's less "speeding up the game" and more "getting the Mafia to do something other than investigate for the first 5-12 rounds". Besides, it wouldn't go into affect until next round, so the Mafia can just keep investigating every round for now, I guess

Next round, in which every investigation turns up "Not Thug", leaving only one person not investigated

And they could still investigate even then, to waste the Trapper's traps (and maybe Doctor's chance to save someone as well).

It would be a kick to see a round won with no night kills eh

Or we could place a limit on how many times the mafia can investigate in a row.

How about just making it so that they have a set amount of investigations they can use every round?

This would probably move the no-kill nights towards the end of the game if I'm thinking correctly.



And no-kill nights during the end would be far more interesting, fun and suspenseful than in the start.

Seems more fair than Thug/not-thug. After all, If I were part of the real Mafia, I'd want an investagator who could actually figure out the occupation of the guy I'm tracking.

After nearly four years of hosting this game, I believe that I am ready for retirement.

Once Round 8 ends, Mafia veteran Sukasa will succeed me as the game's host. His knowledge of and experience with the game is extensive, so I am confident that he will do an excellent job.

I've had a blast, but it's time for me to move on.
