Re: The Dead Thread

It wasn't a matter of clearing meta4, necessarily - I just needed to specifically call out my intent to shoot *someone*, and convince people that I was going to pull the trigger. If that person was a wolf, then game over. If that person was human, then they needed to shoot the other player in order ...

Re: Last Gun Standing

Bah - I got close, but something off in the subfora; everyone has access to human and dead thread, but not wolf (and then I removed my GM permissions to verify, so I can't correct that).

Re: Day X: The Day Spheno Forgot

Started Pandemic Legacy yesterday, and time disappeared under mysterious circumstances. I'll give it some time for the west coast to wake up, but if you're not a wolf, the best way to prove it is to take the shot. Otherwise, I'm shooting you, FCM.

Re: Day X: The Day Spheno Forgot

rekard already outlined very good reasons why Meta4 wouldn't be a wolf. Since I know I'm human, that means I shoot FCM, Meta4 shoots me, and Meta4 is last man standing for a human win. I'll most likely take the shot tomorrow ~early afternoon, though, to see what everyone else has to say - Meta4's sh...
