In a parallel universe, the first few days could have gone like this, giving the humans a much better shot. A lot of those steps don't really advance anything, they just pass time. While they're spending these lynches on making sure "the confirmed" don't die, other humans are being picked...

Re: Card Stock - Dead Chat

The delay on lynch information hurts the humans, but also the occasional death avoidance hurts the humans.

No lynch votes yet! Crazy. I'll go first. Best clue available is that the first wolf got to pick his buddy. So with that, it's a simple matter of matching wits with a Sicilian when detention is on the line!

Re: Draw & Discard - Day 3

FCM, quick -- what are the odds that if Aldax randomly selects two people that aren't Aldax or rekard, that both are wolves?

There are 9 players without those two (and dead RaveBomb), so 9 choose 2 is 36 pairs... 1 in 36 chance of accidentally picking both wolves? Is that how it works?

This, along with the alpha princess rekard is an interesting combination- since we can be pretty sure rekard is still human (and 100% sure if we detain rekard a second time), that means at endgame, we have potentially 2 unmaulable humans (the one in and detention and the one entering that day).

Honestly, these detention power things should simply be day powers, and then you're fine. Like for instance the Princess's power of controlling the vote.

The fact that several of them return the player to the village is an entirely separate issue with separate balance challenges.

Re: Draw & Discard - Day 2

He was human, then the one wolf picked a wolf partner in the night phase. I don't think the wolf could reasonably pick rekard before his role was shown to be a thing that would survive detention. I'm assuming he is still human.

That's a reasonably good outcome for the first lynch.

Any role can end up being a wolf. If you're relying on that to get them lynched, they might as well be an alpha who gets a free maul every time they're voted up.

Re: TWG CX: Love Letter (signup)

The Countess is remarkably hard to kill. Especially since roles like Guard can only target unrevealed roles.

Also, is your Priest meant to investigate roles? It says factions, but then it seems unnecessary limited to unrevealed roles.
