Smelly is so fluffy he’s gonna die - 17 February 2012 11:49 AM

I’m not sure if people are burning out, or just getting busy.  But the game can’t advance without a majority, so lets try to get some chatter going, and commit to killing people.

I don’t think people are burning out—I think the village is paralyzed with doubt. People are afraid of the pile-on label. I think the wolves are getting spooked also—at first they were comfortable in their silence, but it is probably wearing on them.

One thing we’ve learned from previous games is that while wolves can drive a pileon, they can also sit back and let one happen, sowing dissent and confusion in the process.

I think Flounder’s reasoning for jumping on HCO is very weak. Whether that’s an attempt to deflect attention from his wolfy partner, or just day one work remains to be seen.

I cop to it being a fairly weak reason (even weaker after bads clarified where hco may have been coming from), but it was the wolfiest sounding thing anyone had done to that point.

He retracted his vote on HCO after some discussion. Are you saying he was a wolf hunting HCO, but hen he pulled back because he felt he overstepped? Or was the pulling back a deflection from HCO—a fenit. conterfeint manuever? HCO has been a first day target in past games, usally not lasting deep into the game, so perhaps Flounder the Wolf thought he had an easy kill, then realized otherwise.

My initial suspicions were bads and JGLB. Flounder jumping on someone else seemed to me weak, as well as possibly deflecting attention away from JGLB and bads, which makes sense if one of them (and Flounder) is a wolf. If he’d targeted the one of those two who isn’t a wolf, he risks drawing attention to his partner.

My intitial suspicion was JGLB. It was based on much, but the ball needed to start rolling. I retracted the vote, but I am still suspicious of him.

OK, the wolves appear to have retreated to the shadows as well as some villagers paraylzed with fear.

We need to pick someone to die. Hopefully, that person is a wolf.

OK, that’s good reasoning but Flounder would look suspicious from that jumping point no matter what he did.

Oh…9 man werewolf is better than 7 man werewolf. Stakes are too high on Day One with only 7 players so everything slows down…

Very true—- sacrificial lambs are a unaffordable luxury. Also, when one or two people have real life intervene, that slows it down much more also.

I think you are overstating the dynamic yestreday.  Neither bads or jglb was in danger of being lynched.

Do you think bourbon was wolfy for starting the voting on me?  If not, how is what he did different?

Is self-defense a good strategy? I am not saying it is a wolf strategy, but going after an accuser seems to defeat the purpose of the village working together to find the werewolves. That certainly would play into the wolves’ favor.

I think its natural for a villager to suspect anyone who suspects him.  On the flip side, it makes for an easy excuse for a wolf.  Ideally, if you want to get others to vote for your attacker, you will have to provide other reasons that people will buy.  Because they have no reason to know that you are a villager.

Bourbon and JGLB have been MIA for some time. Perhaps they can break the deadlock.

Yeah. So someone is a werewolf and someone has to die, preferrably they’re the same person.
