Why are we such opposites?  :D

So, what do you think ShyGuy selected as the bomb word this round? We're safe now. We can speculate without fear. It's the other players still to select that will have to deal with any paranoia our conversation may have. :evil;

I meant it's the last one I used in real life, earlier today.

Yikes! How many streaming services do you subscribe to?

it is safe to ... keep Khushrenada on a couch trip.

Once again I guess I'll go with the last one I used, even if I'm probably canceling it soon, in Peacock.

That's not the last one you used. You used Hulu last time but that's gone from the choices now and Paramount + is the only other one you used before that. What kind of game are you playing here?  :o

Also, congrats to whoever selected April as the month the Switch would surpass the 3DS. I selected May. While the week it happened was from April 25 - May 1 and just barely includes May, I'm going to chalk it up to April as the winner since it likely surpassed the 3DS total sometime during that week before the last day of May 1.

Sadly, when I first put up the poll, I had tried to guess what the figures might be per week and thought May would be the best spot as I was banking on it happening the first or second week of May. A few days later, I noticed I had April selected as my choice. I was confused how I did that so I took advantage of my poll powers to quickly correct my choice to May. If only I'd left things alone and been optimistic of the Switch getting there by the end of April!  :'(

Of course, we didn't know about Switch Sports being announced and coming out near the end of April at the time the poll was created. If I had then I'd have been more confident in choosing that month. I think my guess of May would have worked had that game not been released.

Forget Switch Sports, this is the real story here!

XBS - 6,225
PS5 - 2,693

What a drop in numbers:

PS5 last week - 24,889
PS5 this week - 2,693

Considering some of those titles at the bottom sell like 1,000 and some copies to just make it into the top 30, maybe an XBox will make it onto the Top 30 now. It's certainly sold enough systems to do so.  ;)

I guess we'll be seeing a whole lot of games getting cancelled for PS5 development as the public shows they do not want the system. :smug:

Dang! Things have gotten intense all of sudden. This is kind of the halfway / midpoint round.

Well, let's see. ShyGuy has selected the bomb word this round. What might he have done? He's selected YouTube both times he had to choose a safe word. Would he now make his safe choice a deadly choice....?

Meanwhile, I've ended up selecting Peacock twice. Would he select that in the hopes I'd select it again and thus eliminate another player?

When I did a random number generated selection, it came up with Paramount+ but Insanolord chose that before so it just feels tainted. Normally I'd avoid anything he's doing but (and I can't believe I'm saying this) the dude just won a game after finishing second the previous game so maybe I should be thinking like Insanolord. I mean, somehow the Oilers are winning in the NHL playoffs so nothing's really making sense these days.

What to do, what to do.....

Amazon Prime Video it is. If I've outwitted myself into a bomb word then this game is clearly broken because Insanolord is succeeding at it and somehow I'm not!

Since Peacock is owned by NBC Universal, we can watch all those great Minion movies when we visit Khush! Let's just hope he doesn't change his mind on what movie we are watching  >:( because that would not be safe for anyone.

Sorry. I was looking for some kind of I don't know gif to spice up the post and one of the top results was that Michael Scott one so it seemed like destiny was telling me to go with Peacock again. I did it for the memes!!

Also, don't worry about watching movies at my place. I'll just re-enact them all out for you. Movies as live theater is so much better!

We all know Khushrenada's love of watching movies so we have to know, what streaming service has your favorite movies Khush?

Oh no! Is this the part where I have to admit that I don't subscribe to any streaming services...? I have no idea which might have my favorite movies. Just do what true movie lovers do and subscribe to TCM on cable and go to the movie theaters to see what's current.  ;)

So, on that note, Twitch clearly has all the movies I want to see....

EDIT: Actually, let's change that to Peacock. I can do that, right? No result has been posted yet....

That is right Khushrenada!
Jumping into an already oversaturated market in 2020 might have seemed risky, but with Comcast backing Peacock it is a safe service to subscribe to.

Well, the random number generator came up with 9 so I'll play the odds that it is safe. Surely Order.RSS wouldn't hate the offerings of the Peacock and The Office reruns....

..isn't that right, Bungle4?

Actually, maybe it isn't all that dire. I did finish the last case in the Great Ace Attorney Part 1 before starting Kirby this month. So, that's like I completed 1 game since it was originally sold as a stand alone game on the 3DS in Japan. I think I was still playing a bit of Jeopardy on Switch at the start of the month as well. I was hoping to crack the $500,000 mark but the random nature of the Daily Doubles keeps holding me back. Best I was able to get to was $477,000 and some change in a game. Just seemed like I was seeing so many repeating categories that I stopped playing because it had gotten so long and boring. I suppose I could consider it beat but I wish I knew if I'd actually seen all the question in the game or not.

Block chain? More like the Bankruptcy chain, m i rite?! :smug:

Yep. Complete failure on my end as well. April saw a collapse of my gaming time. After posting in this thread about the 11 hors spent on Kirby and the Forgotten World, I did not pick it up again until April 30th in which I was able to advance to the point of unlocking the final world but that's as far as I was able to get with it in April.

Sadly, this also resulted in my completing missing out on the Kirby Forgotten World theme in Tetris 99. I saw the announcement and wanted to get the theme since it was Kirby but it wasn't until Wednesday after that weekend it was available that I turned on my Switch for the first time in over a week and it suddenly hit me that I had forgotten about that and missed it. That was the low point for the month.

I also did not once get back to Fire Emblem Birthright. I did still do my daily Badge Arcade check-in. Instead, I started playing a bit of Picross e8 near the end of the month and just solving a few puzzles here and there but nowhere close with a hope of finishing that in time for the month.

And that's my 0 in 4 for the month. Seemed like a simple enough task but I need to do something about my time management I suppose. Oh well. There's still time for redemption when Backlaugust  rolls around.

I just read the fine print and I better sign up now!

Alternatively, and hear me out, a game called Mario Kart with no Mario or karts.

Kirby Air Ride 2 but it's called Mario Kart Racing.

Jumpman from the original Donkey Kong arcade game.

(Listen! All I'm saying is that I think a game called Mario Kart should really have a lot of Mario's in it, right? It's the bloody name of the game!)

Thread locked and tallying votes....

Vote tally

The Perm and TopHatAnt123 voted Mop it up
Khushrenada and Mop it up voted for Nickmitch
Order.RSS voted for TopHatAnt123

So we have a two way tie between   Mop it up and Nickmitch.

Here is how things can work.

One of the players voting for a player can either unvote their vote to cause the other player in the tie to be voted out.    Order.RSS can change their vote fromTopHatAnt to one of the players in a tie. 
Another option is that someone who hasn't voted can vote for either Nickmitch or Mop it up to make one of those players have 3 votes and thus breaking the tie.

If none of those happen within the 30 minute tie break period then I will randomly kill someone alive.

Geez Louise, BeautifulShy! You're tallying the vote an hour before the day ends, 17 minutes before the day ends but it takes 30 minutes to retally it again? What's that all about?  ;D ;)

I've been told an interesting second opinion. What if Alexia got lucky and recruited the detective at the start of the game? That could now have led to today's situation with the Encryptor providing false information. (And let me say, with all that Khush talk at the start of the message, it really does seem to be dripping with incorrect ideas.) It could also be that the Encryptor was recruited and is now giving false information. As such, I think there needs to be a second message explaining somethings from the encryptor for Day 3 on this matter. It's possible the detective found the encryptor and has found a mafia member but why not state the mafia member's role that was supposedly discovered?

As such, I will instead throw my vote in a different direction: Vote Nickmitch

Yes player agency is important because otherwise it would just be a waiting game till most folks are on the Ashford Mafia. 

Oh, I'm willing to wait!  ;D  8)

Also want to point out an important tenet to Mafia games in general.  Play to your role that you received.  I remember one game, Power Rangers Mafia, where I started as a normal townie and then Rita made me a monster so I would be on the Mafia's side but I was still playing as I was a townie and folks got really upset at me after the game.  I want folks to not deal with that type of situation.

Not to rehash old games but I'd say there is a difference in hedging your bets to keep options open in case you end up getting a switcheroo this game vs still playing for the other side after a switcheroo has happened. At that point, you are locked into a faction. Right now, there's the possibility of a faction swap for a lot of players so its something I think should be considered when deciding what the priority target and voting strategy may be.

Encryptor message

Oh this is interesting.  There is a message from the encryptor.  Not sure what it means but it is interesting nonetheless.

"Don't listen to Khush!!! Khusheses is always nasty filthy liars and mafia!! You NEVER TRUST HIM! Don't be fooled by his lies. True townie will vote for Mop it up. Confirmed to be Mafias!"
This sounds like gollum. Is there an RE character that talks like this?

Sounds like nickmitch to me based on how he's been so eager to target me in the pm game!  >:( I'm just getting attacked from all sides this game!  :'( I've done nothing to you all but host multiple games for you to enjoy!!  ;)

Welp, I hate to do it since I'd prefer to see what wily schemes she may get up to but if she's confirmed Mafia then I guess I'll do my part and un-Vote Mop it up. Maybe then the Encrypter will see that I'm also a true townie and not be so mean!  :(

I think I disagree with that argument Khush.

Yeah, I'd disagree with it also since BeautifulShy has interjected with how she won't let it play out that way with everyone eventually just getting neighborized into one big winning family.

Order.RSS has pointed out the better odds that actually come from not voting. Compared to yesterday's result, it does seem like the smarter play is to shoot for a total random elimination but I get why players are more likely to object to doing that and putting themselves at risk for something that could still not benefit them. Plus, it does kind of go against the spirit of the game. What's the point of the game if we just wait around to see how random eliminations play out and settle who wins and loses? There's no player agency so that's kind of silly too.

Illumination movies are **** no matter how long they're delayed, but they make tons of money off gigantic ad campaigns so everyone gives them a pass.

How dare you! Just for that, Illumination is going to make you watch this movie over and over until you admit they make the best animated films in the business! Looks like someone's going to have a long 2023.

As for me, I think I'll play it smart and just give them a pass.  8)

If folks want to go down the no vote route and there is no votes and no votes past the tie breaking period I will randomly kill someone so everyone isn't entirely safe but perhaps you want to chance not being selected to die via randomizer.

Just something to note.

Booo!! There's nothing in the rules about my plan.

Typically for my games I have a voting requirement but because of a certain role people can vote as much or as little as you like. It is up to the players to call out this sort of behavior and do something about it.

We're just choosing to vote as little as we like.  ;D

If no one votes in an election then nothing happens. There is no winner and there is no loser. If no votes in the day then same thing. Nothing should happen. There is no winner or losers. There's nothing.

I think I'm just going to chalk this game up as a win for me because I figured out how to break the game and win it. 8)  ;)

Thinking about today, no votes might be best.

Consider: Ashford or whatever had the opportunity to neighborize right when the game began or just before it. Let's assume that was successful.

If so, that would mean there are 2 players on the Ashford side and 3 players on the Wesker side. 5 villains. There are currently 11 players left. That means almost half the players right now are Mafia. With how yesterday played out, it's more likely that another townie gets killed today instead of a Mafia player despite it being an almost 50/50 shot of correctly voting for a guilty party if you are a townie like me.

Moreover, considering what happened last time when a member of the opposing Mafia was neighborized leading to the traitor helping tear down that original Mafia they belonged to, it is better for a townie to wait and see if that happens here. By not voting another townie out by accident then you increase your odds of winning in two ways. One is that you help keep the townie faction larger by not eliminating members of it by mistake which may prove advantageous if the Mafias do target each other and decimate their own numbers in a Mafia war. Two, you may be neighborized instead which would also likely give you a better chance of victory as the Ashford Mafia can increase its number to the point of hypothetically neighborizing everyone in the game, thus making everyone a winner on the Ashford side.

With this in mind, I find the motivation to vote out others just isn't there for me. Better to make it harder for the Wesker Mafia by forcing them to expose themselves by trying to get other players voted out in an attempt to whittle down the numbers and thus get targeted. It will also leave them with a lot of hit choices to protect Ashford increasing the chances one of them gets converted and exposes the other members. A lot of players in the game also means it would take a much longer time for them to win which will further hurt their chances of victory as it gives someone like the investigator more time to get through players identities.
