I guess that is all folks are going to say about it.

So....if I'm about to be lynched and I'm an Evil do I claim the role that is going to bring the highest reward or buy me the most time? Claiming Anderson Cooper buys more time than claiming Jill Stein. Claiming Jill brings the potential of a greater reward. If I'm Conway I claim Jill - low value risk for high return. If I'm Trump I claim Jill - if I feel Putin is still around to replace me. If I'm Putin I certainly claim Anderson since claiming Jill is asking to be attacked or outed due to counterclaim.

Not about to be lynched claiming Cooper is silly - even had he not already been claimed. Claiming Stein has the potential for reward if not countered.

Coming forward when I did was mostly because I hadn't been following the game much and just knew we were close to the end not that we were on the edge. I kept hoping to have something to offer that was solid - a Trump/Conway target to lynch. Instead all I have is a bunch of "well, these guys aren't 2/3 of team bad guy but don't stop looking at them". Which is next to useless.

I'm tired of this game's pace and waiting for those under scrutiny to do more so I'm going to try and find time to reread then place my vote.

Of course, if he's Trump and Putin lives, we very likely lose.

If it matters, I'm a nobody.

So, if Grund and Chaosraven are the (non-Russian) wolves, Grund should be along shortly to finish me off. If not, then Chaosraven is merely mistaken. But then we're still screwed, I think, unless Putin is dead, since even if PLW and Remus are both wolves there's another one still out there.

We'll see!

That should be Lassr and Remus. Looked too quickly at Moliere's vote summary - PLW is voting for the next guy down on the list (Grund).

This is making me think that Remus is a wolf, and Chaosraven and Lassr are innocent. Once Chaosraven put his vote on me, Remus rushes to put his vote on and hopes that his teammate (which could be almost anyone else, given that his scans would be a lie) gets back in time to finish me off.

I'm not a wolf. I simply have no idea which one of the people I haven't scanned to vote for. Given the two scans I do have split their votes I went with the one I think would tell me the most. Would it make you happier if I vote Grundbegriff?

I'm not going to. Mostly because you just suggested a single "teammate" other than me is out there. Which implies you removed yourself from the equation before beginning. Which would mean you are one of the three or else I'd have two other team mates in your eyes.

I may be wrong but that's the closest thing to a blink one of the unscanned has done.

I'm thinking of Trump and Conway as a team, and Putin as an associate. My guess is that, if you are a wolf, you're one of Trump or Conway. You can't count on Putin joining your dogpile, because you can't communicate and he doesn't know if you or me are wolves. If he joins your vote, he risks the possibility that you are good and I am evil (though I suppose he would at least gain credibility from his vote in that case).

Hence, you couldn't vote planning on Putin joining your vote, but you could vote based on your direct teammate joining your vote.

It is interesting, though, that you're claiming to vote based on "who would tell you more", when we're probably on our last miss. Unless Putin is dead, which is possible but improbable.

Considering how much Trump loves Hispanics it was not surprising that the village would go after El Guapo, ignoring his prophetic words "I'm a nobody" and voted for him anyway. Well, he was a nobody. When asked for a quote about the village's actions Kellyanne Conway could only look puzzled and say "Who's El Guapo? More importantly, Tucker, who are the Democrats to block President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court? Donald Trump won the largest landslide victory in the history of U.S. elections. First they try and stop his highly qualified, and really the greatest Cabinet in the history of all Cabinets, from being confirmed. Now they try and impede the will of the American people and making America Great Again."

Specials, send in your orders. It is now Night 4.

If Trump is lynched and Putin is alive I would announce that Trump has been replaced. If Trump is lynched and Putin is not alive then the game is over.
If Kellyanne is lynched I would announce that Trump no longer has his special Councilor or whatever the fuck her title is.

By a narrow margin Scoop20906 is confirmed into Donald Trump's Cabinet. During his swearing in ceremony he is caught holding his fingers up behind Steve Bannon's head like bunny ears and afterwards is never heard from again.

Votes received

(0) Lassr:
(0) PLW:
