Even number of players, no parity change at Night (barring a bastard mod), so again optimal play is NL at D1. However, since people weren't really happy with doing it last game, I won't be pushing for this, but neither will I be unhappy if NL happens naturally, so as long as we have an even number of players I won't be following my usual "better-lynch-anyone-than-NL" policy.
Incidentally, optimal play for IC is not to reveal self till last Day. Though of course, I don't won't to tell him/her how to play. Let him play the way he'll enjoy it best. Just one thing: there is literally zero reason to claim on a day we're going for NL, if we go that way. Also note, that with no other PRs, there is no reason for Mafia not to NK an outed IC (pre post EDIT: maybe I should say no mathematical reason. If the IC is an utter moron and is helping Mafia with his votes, they might decide to NK an experienced player instead).
Town EV = 53.33%
With all that in mind, the only thing I'd ask Town is not to put anyone at L-1 before giving them the chance to claim, to prevent accidental or "accidental" lynches. If you want to put someone at L-1, say so without doing it. Let them claim. Especially with an even number of players where NL is much better than Unclaimed Lynch.
well, I saw one obvious reason to not necessarily NL the IC other than what you said. Can you?
Are you proposing that the IC stay hidden on his lunch tray/wagon/at L1? :O
Also, UL is the electronics regulators/approvers over here (Underwriters Laboratories), and what do they have to do with the game? :D
Regarding EV--is a lower or higher number better?
Er, I see you answered my one question anyway. Bah. I don't feel like retyping this.
I'druther do scum hunting D1 than NL, but w/e floats people's boats, I guess. Does it matter (I think you answered this previously, but I'm lay-zee) if we L D1 and NL D2? or NL is only ever done if we have even numbers of players?
Has anyone heard from Joe in a while? I hope he is ok & just busy.

Quick, check if anyone else here has a bird or mouse themed nickname....we must warn them of the possible danger! o.0 ;)
I'm a fish. And you deliberately left me out? O.O Are youze scum?
Enough is enough. That right there: Mafia wielding the ultimate weapon of destruction - Math. I should know. I dared touch a simple enough looking calculation thingy once and I got mislynched for it.
I love this comment. I feel the same way about any of the higher maths.
I imagine that Day chat could be very useful.
We have GymHenson serving waffles.
Something feels off there. Unvote Catte Vote GymHenson
What? Where are the waffles? Send them this way! I'll check them all for freshness and doneness!!!
Also, good to see you in a game again!
GymHenson: @Flocke(Post 19):
I have played quite a bit, but am still(due to various factors) a perpetual greenhorn. When I had day chat in prior games, long ago, it didn't help me much. But yeah, it's likely a big help to those who know how to use it right.....which, given the current player group, the scum team likely can.
I'm not sure how to take this? Are you saying that it is useful because you are not scum?
Random.org rolled an 8 out of a range of 1-10, so... vote blotunga @mod
Where is the controls for this engine? Where was part 1? This seems suspicious--someone stole the first half of our story and every part of the starship except the engine!!!!
