One thing I liked about this game was that there was no sure thing, even though we had a sheriff... because of Elusive Lucy, you couldn't count on any of the investigations being accurate. We all had to just go based on our gut instincts, and kind of just take a leap of faith that what we were thinking was true.
I was in contact with vudu and UB mostly, trusting that they were townies, and that made it tense but exciting. I didn't know for sure either way, and I kept doubting that I was right, one day thinking UB had to be mafia, the next, vudu had to be mafia... It was really pretty fun, and vindicating to know that in the end, my hunches were right (well, those two).
Also, to those of you saying it isn't fun or interesting when you're just a townie... I had a ton of fun.
