I can't talk about it here because it might (god forbid) influence an opinion.  I can't post in the active thread.  May I discuss it in Riffchat, or are the baliffs patrolling there too?

Dude, it's been a rule of the game since we very first started playing it.  Don't start getting on my case just because I enforce said rules.  Cool it.

EDIT:  You may want to read the very first post of this thread.  It goes over what the purpose of this thread is:

http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,4963.0.html

Nah.  I don't care.  It's a stupid rule.  I'm not seeing any reason to care or comply.

Excellent.  If you don't abide by the rules you can consider yourself booted from future games.  I'm certain that the future game hosts (TeamRAD, Johnny Unusual, Yoohoo, etc) wouldn't mind barring a rule breaker from the games they're going to host.

Yeah, that'll put me in line.  I already abided by the "don't post in our precious thread if you're out of the game" rule and tried to post in this one, before you people started shitting all over me in here too.  If it's an all or nothing scenario you want to set up, so be it.

Basically, the rules are in place to make everybody forms their own opinions.  If you thought you had a reason to believe someone is mafia while you were still alive, it's up to you to decide whether or not you think it's important enough to say out loud and risk getting yourself killed.  Not everyone looks at the game and sees the same thing.  The mafia families basically have three reasons to kill a person:  1. that person is on to them, 2. bumping someone off to set somebody else up, or 3. they either believe you're playing a role that could hurt them in some way or they simply have no ideas and it's there turn to make a hit.   It's not really fair to the people still playing to keep talking after they've already seen fit to get rid of you.

Try to treat this game like a movie with a twist ending that nobody has seen before.   Wait til it's done and then tell everybody when and why you figured out the ending.  If you're a person that talks during the movie and find people that don't mind you whispering in their ear, then communicate with a whisper (perhaps via PM) but don't shout theories for the whole theater to hear. 

Okay.  That makes sense.  Steve-O and I did kill you late last game to shut you up after all.

I'm a reasonable guy and will listen if someone can take the time to explain instead of adopting a "because I said so" attitude.

I wasn't keen on respecting those rules because this is the Internet, and the accepted response to any objection is to make fun of the objector.

Hee, that was the furthest I've ever got in a game.

Pretty fun all round, aside from Thrifty obviously ;)

Now where are thosae brews and sandwiches?

In the fridge, pardner.

I really thought you were going to make it all the way.

Well I was initially tempted to say 35 (I was pretty sure it'd come down to me vs. Steve since we had the same number of tie-breaker votes) but then I went high instead.

The key thing for me is ensuring the other two members get to the end and hopefully they'll do that. :)

That's the way I play too.  Sure, it's nice to win, but making certain my team (be they Mafia or citizens) wins is always my goal.

It's actually more fun strategy wise.

This is a game where all the pawns ultimately can be king depending on the way the thing plays out. :)

That too, and no doubt that'll be my fate next game. Everyone always fights the last Mafia game at the beginning :D

He's banned from my game for this post:

So, these six remain

4. LBeria - Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy
7. Pak-Man - Mr. Mxyzptlk
12. Steve-O - Cherry Hostess Fruit Pie
20. TripeHoundRedux - Plastic Man
21. Compound - Matter Eater Lad
24. mrbasehart - Ambush Bug

And we know these were Mafia

9. SaucyRossy - Black Adam Killed by a Vigilante Round 3 Injustice League
13. Bairman - The Joker - Killed by citizens Round 1: Darkseid's Elite
22. Therul - Batman - Killed by Darkseid Round 3: Injustice League

Leaving a 50/50 spread since there are two of Darkseid's Elite and one member of The Injustice League still around.

However if the mafia revealed themselves now they'd know not to vote for one another, and without that us three remaining citizens would essentially be siting ducks.

Let's hope they don't do that eh?  :speechless:

Most of the piss poor attitude that denizens of the Internet display is uncalled for.  I just figured that, in a world where complaints are answered with mockery and derision, manners are obsolete and only bring you down.

Before you do something rash, I should warn you that basehart had his dick in me earlier.

Thank you, sir! :)

It is sadly impossible for a pie to bow, but if I could, I would take one.
