It's okay, I wasn't telling you to vote for it.

This is correct. You guys do not know what will happen, but you do have the option to vote no lynch if you want.

I'm going to pick Purdue out of a hat. I'd rather not vote off someone who hasn't been able to play yet. In addition, he's at least someone involved in the two villager showdown.

I didn't see eaglefan's vote when I did that. Oh well, that makes it three way all the quicker.

I'm kind of stuck on the ntndeacon issue. I'm all for getting rid of quiet players, if only for a long-term deterrent. However, it's an easy vote for wolves to hide behind, or argue against. I'm thinking something more random is more likely to rile the Needies up.

I'm with you on this. I don't like the idea of just voting for the guy that you don't like the play style of.. that discourages people from playing at all. So I'm going to vote for the person that last voted for ntndeacon, especially since he already has one vote on him.

VOTE ABE

I don't get it. Either voting for No Lynch is an option or it isn't. If we're allowed to vote for No Lynch, there should be no lynch. It's fine if voting No Lynch causes "something to happen" but if it's a viable vote, it should mean no one is lynched, otherwise it's not a "No Lynch" vote, it's a "make something random happen" vote.

Day 1 is always such a crapshoot as it is - everyone just looking way too into what everyone else is saying. I will stick with ntn for now and see what shakes out.

There is no randomness. Since there is some confusion I will reveal that the only way that a no lynch vote would win is if everyone voted that way. If there is someone with votes on them, then the no lynch votes are wasted, even if they are the majority. I'll update the rules with this option.

VOTE ABE

I'd like to clarify that I *do* believe in voting against play style, if the style is hurtful for the villagers, as I think a quiet player is.

My issue is I think that kind of vote is too easy, on day one, for the wolves to take advantage of. So, I'm going to shy away from it for now.

It's day one in a game where we are in a mental ward. Just having fun with the theme. The number one rule of these games is to have fun (or it should be) and that's what I'm trying to do.

If that looks bad, so be it.



The way I see it day one logic goes like this:

Make a vote on someone with no votes - you are a wolf trying to hide your vote
Make a second or third vote on someone - you are a wolf trying to put a villager in the lead
Keep your vote on one person - you are a wolf hopeing to not be noticed
Move your vote around - you are a wolf trying to create confusion
Try to create a tie - you are a wolf trying to create confusion
Cast a deciding vote - you are a wolf lynching a villager
Cast a self defense vote - you are a wolf using self defense as an excuse
Don't move your vote into the middle of a tight race - you are a wolf trying to hide your vote
Move you vote into the middle of a tight race - you are a wolf trying to save a wolf
Don't vote - you are a wolf afraid of revealing yourself with your vote
Vote first - You are a wolf trying to get in early
Vote last - you are a wolf waiting to see what villager to lynch
Vote in the middle of the daye - you are a wolf trying to hide
Have a normal day one vote - you are a wolf using an excuse
Use some random theory to vote - you are a wolf using an excuse
Leave no comment with your vote - you are a wolf trying to hit and run
Leave a comment with your vote - you are a wolf using an excuse
Post a lot - you are a wolf
Post very little - you are wolf going UTR


I think that about covers most of the main day one voting theories.

I have a pet theory that when the vote counts were tied between EF and ntndeacon at 4-4, that there was one wolf, and just one wolf, in each grouping. This is based on the assumption that both EF and ntn are villagers (likely, based straight on numbers) and standard wolf logic (bury your vote, bury it early enough to not be a late deciding vote, do not vote together with another wolf).

By that standard, one of each of the following four would be a wolf:

EagleFan -- 4 hoopsguy (328) PurdueBrad (343) Lathum (396) dubb93 (416)

ntndeacon -- 4 Passacaglia (370) PackerFanatic (374) Barkeep49 (420) Abe Sargent (425)

Completely an unfounded pet theory on which no votes should be based, but I will be interested in the long run if I am right. If I am, there is one wolf in each group and the rest are villagers (although any of the "villagers" could be the Sympathizer).

The interesting thing about day 1 votes are that you have one of three scenarios:

1) Villager vs Villager (most common)
2) Villager vs Wolf (happens sometimes, not necessarily uncommon, but not regular)
3) Wolf vs Wolf (happens rarely but has occured before).

The issue is that you don't learn which the case is until day 3,4 or 5 usually. In the case of #3, it can actually throw people for a loop when the first one is figured out to be a wolf as it then leaves the other one off the hook for a while (even though I am sure that is not an optimal wolf play to gain trust on day 1).

With case #1, you end up having one of them voted out, and all of the questions rise regarding the other candidate, and often times the next day is led to a witch hunt regarding that person, or sometimes people decide to go a different direction in which the day 1 vote ends up being utterly meaningless for a while.

What I find more interesting is what happens to lead people to the matchup situation on day 1. When you have 9 different people with votes, the chances are much greater that there has to be at least a wolf included in there somewhere. It is in the wolf's interest to try to shape the conversation to a run off between two non-wolves.. Who are the ones instrumental in that conversation? I am guessing that once upon a time that is what led to the thinking "The second vote must be a wolf" as at some point it might have likely been the case often.

Over time the wolves here have become more crafty then that and instead of placing the second vote on someone, they try to manipulate the vote via discussion instead. So that part of the day has passed already and I guess it is interesting to go back and see who might have been a part of that.

Plus with all of the ntn momentum, now that he is here in this thread, do those voters move to Martin, or do they go elsewhere? That is the problem with voting for someone who hasn't shown up after only 2-3 hours of some people's work day (considering many people like myself did not see the game start until this morning).

Just random thoughts (or maybe not so random)

I think when voting for a quiet person,the votes stay on until they've scared the player into contributing. That's a net positive.

I agree that villager/villager is most common, but I think it's strange that that's well noted, but when someone tries to fight against that by switching around, they're called out as suspicious.

Well I had already stated my thoughts on why I didn't want to vote for ntndeacon. And just like you, I thought perhaps it would be best to start a third candidate. I just didn't see you and EagleFan put votes on PurdueBrad before I voted.

Right now I'm just waiting to see how things move forward choosing one of the likely candidates.

Villager/Villager is most common due to percentages involved. I would guess switching is suspicious would be what reason do you have to switch? As a good person on day 1, you most often know very little about the majority of others, so what in your mind would weigh more about one player than the other. So you switch from one villager/villager matchup to another? Why is that one any better than the first? It does make it look like you are trying to save someone even if in your mind you have some other reason for it.

As for all of the random switching throughout the day.. I actually have no idea what that means.. I think too many people didn't get their medication this morning

I'll run some math on the first part of Chief's pet theory: "Two people at random are likely to be villager/villager"

In a vacuum, if you assume 4 wolves + 1 sympathizer, then there are 16 "good" and 5 "bad" votes at this point.

16/21 * 15/20 = 240/420 = 57.1%
OK, this part does hold up although it is not much of a margin. If there are 6 "bad" votes then it doesn't hold up (exactly 50%).

The initial thing that tweaked me on this was the idea that we had to be villager/villager. I understand that the wolves like to shape the conversation, which shifts the probability from where it would be in a vacuum. But the wolf assignments are random. There isn't much they can do about "quiet player backlash" if NTN is a wolf, just to give one example. I've been a wolf a number of times on Day 1 where I've been stuck in cross-fires with another wolf and had to work like hell in mid/late day to generate movement away from me and my partners.

Also, the communication patterns of the wolves may make it difficult for them to shake out the votes just so (1 for each of two leaders) this early in the day.

I agree with Lathum that it is somewhat convenient to come up with a Day 1 theory that puts himself in the clear, clears two more players (the guys with votes) and creates discussion around 8 people.

If it in fact turns out that Chief was right then at the end of the game I will tip my cap to him (assuming he is not a wolf with inside info) but this feels a little too neat to me.

Well I threw out my standard vote for Saldana early in the day(last night), and then as I normally do as the day goes on I move away from Saldana and onto someone I suspect for one reason or the other. It doesn't make Sal any more or less likely to be a wolf just as it doesn't do that for EF either, I just didn't like the way EF's vote was moving around like candy from PB to Hoops to PB to Lathum. Alot of vets in there that a wolf would be all too happy to eliminate.

Dola,

good = villager
bad = wolves

Which would actually invert it, in terms of the quality of the vote, from a villager perspective. But upon a re-read I thought this was a little confusing.

Bottom line = villager/villager is not as likely as people seem to assume, from a math standpoint.

STill, I think if we get a 3-way or 4-way vote, we get a better idea as there's a good chance there's a wolf in that mix. It may be only 57%, but 57% chance of the wolves being able to stay out of the vote is a bad thing.

How does CR's theory even put himself in the clear, anyway? He theorizes one wolf in one group of four, another group in another group of 4, and two more left out there? So we've got wolves in all the groups he's made.

Right now I'm just waiting to see how things move forward choosing one of the likely candidates.

I think Autumn was talking about the fact that you voted Abe, rather than the fact that you voted for a third person.

so what you're saying hoops is that we should lynch chief rum to find out about the other two who were on the block?

or is that your way of working like hell because you're a wolf and so are one/both of them so we should lynch YOU?

So you switch from one villager/villager matchup to another? Why is that one any better than the first? It does make it look like you are trying to save someone even if in your mind you have some other reason for it.

As for all of the random switching throughout the day.. I actually have no idea what that means.. I think too many people didn't get their medication this morning

I guess I would think the developing vote count gives you reason to switch. On Day 1, we don't have anything to go on, so every little bit of information changes what you know drastically. This is different from Day 2, when you have a completed vote count, results, and a night-kill.

Yes, thank you. A vote on Abe out of all these suspicious characters at this moment seems a poor choice at best.

Ah, well in that case I already stated why I voted for Abe. He was the last one to add a vote to ntndeacon, and he already had a vote so I wasn't spreading out the field further.

I'll most likely be moving my vote at some point since we have three people with three+ votes and there doesn't appear to be any movement on Abe. Problem is it's Day 1 and there's not much reason to vote for one of those three over the other two. I don't like the idea of voting for ntndeacon for reasons previously stated. I think EagleFan was just playing around and don't see his vote hopping as suspect. And I think PurdueBrad just got an unfortunate run on him without much real reason.

You do recall that you actually stated that you picked PurdueBrad's name "out of a hat". I at least had some plausible reason for picking who I did for a third candidate.

Well, I think your reason wasn't much more than picking out of a hat, frankly, though yes you did offer a rationale. My worry is that there may be a deeper reason for you targeting Abe, not that you didn't give a reason at all. Clearly no one except the wolves have a real reason at this point.
