Rules and gameplay elaborated in the support thread - make of the most of this folks. Because of the 2 powerful roles in this you all need to be a lot more upfront and also to use your power effectively, even if it means revealing yourself because that means your enemy may expose themselves even if they can hide under the shield of death...

Still not sure, but WTF! I VOTE FOR DOTSIE!

That'll teach you to call me a fibber, you...you....fibber you! :twisted:

In the first game I played in I was a killer, & I didn't get voted out.

In the second game I played in, everyone remembered I was the killer first time, & voted me out straight away. I was one of the good guys.

In the third game I played in I was a killer, & I didn't get voted out.

In the fourth game I played in (ie this one), everyone remembered I was a killer last time, and ......

Can anyone else see the pattern emerging here, or is it just me? :P

Mix it up people! Pooh has never been voted off, despite being a gobby so-and-so every game, and he was killer last time, so..

I VOTE FOR POOH :twisted:

...plus Dotsie is using failed logic here.

If you toss a coin and it comes up heads ten times, the odds of it coming up heads next time ARE NOT 100% as Dotsie seems to think. The odds are 50%! :lol:

Coin tossing is always 50% - unless you're using a dodgy coin. Coin tossing is not relevant as I used a hat and names on folded-up paper not a coin as the randomiser... :roll:

I think I'm more confused after Jan's explanations - I thought it seemed quite straightforward before :o

I don't have a clue actually who the killers might be so I'm sticking with Crys (sorry Crys :wink: )
my last vote is for Crys

A reminder that there are a little less than 24 hours in which to cast a vote left to everyone.

I think everyone's been in the thread at least once so I won't be granting a very long extension if you haven't voted at least once - you have been warned...! :twisted:

Sorry if the gameplay is causing concern this time - it will start to simplify once we get the night phase over with. If only because at least 1 person will have been eliminated... :P

Well that does depend on how much you're trying to shake things up of course pooh, but at least you might get one person genuinely eliminated from the equation :wink:

I never use failed logic. I was simply pointing out that everybody else does. I'm a target because I've been the killer before.

And because I'm female. Out of four games, the first person to be voted off has been female each time, except for pooh's revenge lynching of Sjoerd. If in doubt, get rid of a woman - just like they do in Big Brother. :roll:

So I'll say it again, I VOTE FOR POOH

Failed logic again. :roll:

If there were an equal numbers of males and females, then your comment about females being voted off first might hold some water.

There are 6 females and two males playing this game. Statistically, the chances of a female being voted off are 75% (3:4), whereas for males it's 25% (1:4). Let's see....we've had 4 games and once a male was voted off first. I make that a 1:4 probability - Oh it's exactly what it should be. :lol:

I think Dotsie is clutching at straws (again!) because she is Black Aliss! :twisted:

So we've always had 6 females and 2 males playing, have we? Once again, your grasp of stats is letting you down pooh :roll:
