Hooray!

It's funny, I know I played in this game, but I really barely remember it at this point.

Thanks for running this Lassr!

To think I only killed Remus because he's been silent all game because of work (though he may have looked guilty if he had posted more since, well, he's Remus.

It was an odd game overall but I like the "who would have BB picked?" mind game that was added to the mix.

As the seer, I had scanned Remus but suspected bb and Grund. With Remus willing to kill bb, I was certainly surprised to find bb was the berserker and killed me!

Each time I put that 'aside' it was hard to do. It honestly just felt like I had come to the conclusion to early and I owed it to myself to re-read.... But I will be damned if each time I didn't keep thinking it was Grund and Remus.


and NO ONE laughed at my "Annie" with "Remus" picture. damn. it was spot on, too!.

Heh. We thought you had scanned bb so we were throwing him to you. We had scanned you and knew you were a special so we figured you were probably the Seer.

Sorry to everyone for my lack of time to give to this game. Life and family just keeps me from giving more than 5 minutes here and there and keeps me scattered enough that I need more than that just to figure where the game stands each visit. When I have had time for OO I have been in R&P depressing myself by reading about what the orange a-hole has been up to.

Oh be quiet. I suggested Scoop was scanned. I suggested someone was scanned. I suggested a person playing the game, was a good target for the Seer.

That's all I really ever did.... and yet you sat there and just let all the other peoples play go totally ignored.... But - OMG - Unagi suggested a person was scanned by the Seer.


But you were super busy. All is forgiven.

Good game villagers. I think the parasites in this game were a little lack luster, but that takes nothing away from the villagers grinding out a win.

Not sure if Lassr has given out the link to the spoiler forum, but the reasons I picked RW and Grund were thus:

RW - I was hoping people would say that I wouldn't pick him because of our constant back and forth in these games. Also he has a knack (when he is not overwhelmingly busy) to get out of being lynched. It is uncanny. That is also why I picked him for the seer.

Grund - Haven't played with Grund on a bad guy team in a while (it did not end well for us that time either) and thought it would be fun. Besides, when looking at the play list I didn't want to leave Grund as a player. He is almost as dangerous as Unagi when left unchecked/alive. The thought of having both of them out there hunting made me shudder. I should have chose the extra vote power, but thought if we could block a scan that would be huge. That power has derailed games before.

After last game I was sure I was going to be lynched. No matter if I was good or evil, I just had a feeling it was coming. That is why I chose beserker. Fortunately RW was able to scan Zara so I could take him to the afterlife with me before he could spill his guts.

I went back and forth on choosing several other people who do better at flying under the radar than these two, but leaving RW and Grund on team villager to hunt bad guys didn't seem like a good idea either. It was quite the dilemma. I almost wish I could do it again and pick differently to see what would happen.

Also, thank you Lassr. Although the play ground to a halt at times due to players IRL issues, the overall premise and the game itself was very fun. I think you are probably the best gamemaster on OO. Your games are always well balanced and very entertaining.

Yeah the game cam down to a crawl a few times here and there, I've also been crazy busy at work (and also a week off of work where I forgot I was playing for some odd reason) but when it picked up at random points it got really interesting so maybe just some off luck.

As always, thanks Lassr for hosting !

If folks want I can probably run a game. Scanning through for vote counts and such doesn't take nearly the time that playing requires.

The "choose your own team" was really interesting. Definitely the strongest part of the game, even with a great theme.
