This game ended up way more complex than I intended originally. I wish I could've given it the proper time. I'm very sorry everyone for all the delays and the huge pause at the end of the game. Life handed me some hard crap and then I got really busy irl. I hope you all still had fun. Thank you for bearing with me and being active. I want to finish all the story when I get the chance. I just couldn't go any longer without putting up the results for you. I've felt so horrible about it. Thank you so much for playing!

Rip, I was so close to winning. :P

@BrightnessRadiant Thank you so much for running this game! I completely understand how busy you got and how that impacted your ability to be able to run this game. Don’t let it eat you up too much or anything.

@Kynedath I wasn’t lying when I said I was trying to play the game with lying as little as possible. Obviously though, I had to make a couple lies here and there. :P

Great game, everyone! @Kidpen, thanks for finally forcing us to lynch Striker.

Elims, you did a great job! I for sure thought we were going to lose. @StrikerEZ, the biggest reason I struggled to lynch you is that I was never attacked with the binoculars. I thought for certain you'd attempt that, as you were the only one I'd told about them until I announced it in the thread. @Elkanah, you did a great job appearing village. I think the only reason I continued to pursue your lynch was the attempt to steal from CadCom.

@_Stick_, thank you for trusting me enough to send those binoculars back to me. I promptly put them in the strong box we talked about, so I wouldn't lose them again, barring death. Even if I wasn't able to scan the actual killer (I was knifed the turn I did try), it's what led me to suspect Elkanah again.

Thank you, BR for the game! As I said before, it's perfectly fine if you had to take some time. Life happens, we understand. :) Taking care of yourself is way more important than minding an online game. :P This was a fun game! I love the mechanics of it. Thanks!

@Elandera If I remember correctly, part of the reason why I didn’t want to kill you was because I thought it’d be better to keep you around to help get lynches on other players going. Alas, it was not meant to be. :P

@BrightnessRadiant Are you gonna post the links to the spec/dead and elim docs?

Thank you everyone for such a great game!! I really loved the stealing! I didn't have much time for RP so didn't really use the shop. I envisioned the items moving around as if it were a Whack-a-mole game. I was conscious about what time I would send in the steal order to maximise my chances of getting something. Did anyone else have this strategy?

I love the Whack-a-mole idea! Though, since this was Reckoners, we could probably come up with a Reckoners version. Like Whack-a-Meg(an) or Whack-a-Epic.

I realized that was a good strategy to have, but didn’t really use it since I was never quite sure what action I wanted to take until near the end of the cycle.

Oh gosh, that was incredibly close.

Thanks BR for the game! We all totally understand that you got busy, it's perfectly understandable. 

That was a hard game. I was not at all confident in the Striker lynch, and honestly that could've gone completely wrong. 

Plus one to wanting to see the spec and elim docs at your earliest convenience, @BrightnessRadiant! No rush though!

Awesome game @BrightnessRadiant! I loved it!

Great job village! I was on the edge of my seat the whole game! An extra shout out to @DeTess @Twibanu and @Elandera I was terrified playing against all three of you and I think if we'd left any two of you alive longer together it wouldn't have been as close of a game!

I logged in and saw Elandera had mentioned me in a comment and was struck with horror until I remembered the game was already over! XD

I had such a great time playing this game! It was super fun and well done organizing and GMing it @BrightnessRadiant!

@StrikerEZ That's the best way to lie though! The lie is even more believable when it's hidden in truth. I knew you were an elim! I didn't want to be right, you were so nice! 

I also second the question of if we will get to see the spec doc, dead doc, elim doc, and master spreadsheet.

As Kynedath said, that's the best way to run. It becomes even better if you can make the lies things village!you would actually believe.

Thanks! I was going to say that I didn't really do much of note this game, but I had apparently been pushing for the lynch of 2/3 of the elims while I was alive, so that wasn't all that bad XD 

Anyway, I'd also like to thank BR for running the game, and apologize for my own role in making this game more complicated than initially envisioned.

edit: oh, and if an elim could link the doc, I'd love to have a look at it!

Yeah, that’s generally what I try to do when I play as an elim. It’s really hard to do that when you have to take actions that really don’t make sense from a villager standpoint though. :P

@Elkanah already did it! But I’d just like to say that I definitely rambled a lot in that doc. :P

Anyway, thanks Elkanah and @Sart for being awesome elim teammates! We were so close to winning, but it’s fine that we lost. This game was really really fun to play.

On that subject, if a dead person could link that doc, I would like to see that as well!

So, I just got done reading the dead doc, and I like how much people were talking about me in there. :P

I really do think I played a pretty good elim in this game. Though I am curious what @Twibanu meant when you said that I was almost distancing too much? Also, what do you mean I work well in a team with almost anyone?

I feel really bad that I died from the inactivity filter. I thought I had a couple more hours in the cycle, but alas. Anyway, props to my teammates for making the game last as long as it did.

Hey, @BrightnessRadiant!

Thanks for a great game! I had a lot of fun. :D Thanks to the remainder of the village for rooting out the Elims. Plus props to the Eliminators for keeping me clueless and on my toes!

And...I don’t know if there was a dead doc because I never received one. Nevermind, just me.

It’s not a big deal. Life happens sometimes. I would’ve reminded you earlier in the cycle if I’d even remembered that the inactivity filter was a thing. :P

Yeah going off our PM convo and general gut read, I figured it would be safest to just send em back to you. :D I would’ve been REALLY surprised if an elim had started off with supposedly the only pair of binoculars! :0 

And good game, elims! I feel kinda stupid for defending Sart so vehemently D1 xD I still think that vote looks very village...

Hey everyone, I know I'm late.... Sorry... As anyone who has talked to me about my personal life knows (or who has read my profile's status updates), I'm basically too busy to physically exist... so... Yeah fun times.

The village won? Awesome! Wait... was I village or elim this game...
Oh... This game. Cool. I'm remembering parts of this... I really thought the elims were going to win when I left.

I didn't see a link to the dead doc. My bad if one was already posted:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gjfXpidsIvNSWo9WSTlxMGTC3cVT2tBLoeRw5KtcJz0/edit?usp=sharing
(Also, I apparently changed the doc to share only? I didn't know I could do that as I don't own the doc? Lol)

This was a great game and lots of fun. Life is life, and is always more important than games. I hope your doing better, and best wishes headed your way. If I can help with anything let me know.

I don't know. I would have pushed hard to kill Striker, but I was fairly neutral on you IIRC. You could definitely have convinced me to target someone else...
Once Sart died, most of the suspicion on you was shown to be purely coincidental so... I hate it when that happens as an elim.

It sucks, but it did throw a huge wrench in the game. xD Was definitely funny from my perspective. Still, life happens.

Honestly it's been too long for me to remember exactly.  I think I was saying that your distancing was too "good" rather than too much? From my perspective in the dead doc, it looked like you were inadvertently setting Elkanah up to die. I don't remember if this was before the cycle he was outed or not though. Might have been just a faulty perspective thing. I don't have the time to dig through and analyse.

About the team thing, there are many ways to analyse a game of mafia. One, and I think the most common way, is to look at individual people and analyse if their motivations seem good or not. This is useful in the early-mid game when there isn't a ton of info.
Another way to analyse is to look at people's interactions, and determine if they could be on compatible teams. For instance, if I defend Devotary from a lynch, you could say we are compatible teammates. If I create and drive a push to get Devotary lynched, we are (for the purpose of this exercise) incompatible teammates. This style is IMO most useful mid game and very late game when you have a lot of info, and need to start organizing it.

Basically, for this game, I assumed a team of 3, one of which was Sart. So we can rule out people incompatible with Sart. Next we look for pairings of people compatible with each other, while still both being compatible with Sart. The only people You weren't compatible with were CadCom and myself, where most other people were compatible with only 1-3 other people.

Hopefully that makes sense?
