    I'm so glad this game is finally over.

    Thank you fulcrum, dkings, Rhand for being great teammates.

    Everyone in the town was also excellent to play with. Believe me, I wanted to replace into a town slot.

    I'll write more about this game later, but I have a bunch of HW due because I wasted a lot of time today writing up those cases Slant

    Because Bur asked me to add something to the Mini queue:

    Game Name: Modern Mafia
    Size: 12 players
    Complexity: Medium

    The Modern format is fast, brutal, and unforgiving to mistakes. Will the good, fun decks of the Modern format prevail, or will the format degenerate into un-interactive combos and non-games of Magic?

    Coming soon to a Mini queue near you.

    as much as was thinking of pressuring lurkers etc i was thinking about sort of giving a day 1 pass for any new MALers (Gwendolly/DisplayName/yurkin) given that they are new to the site and lynching them day 1 would leave a bad taste in my mouth, since they're still getting used to the site/meta + being lynched in your first game in a new site sucks, personally speaking

    for anyone not in the know: Shinichi/Lastwhisper/dawningbluesky/Gwendolly/DisplayName/yurkin come from MyAnimeList, the land of WEEBS, where the games are much shorter and less analytical than MTGS. i kind of started playing on the site two years ago because i wanted to play on a site without meta + playing on new sites is fun for me. and i inadvertently invited some cross culture pollination here. just to give people a heads up as to why there are a lot of newer players in this game

    Still, I think this is a reasonable discussion that we, as a community, should talk about.

    Why have there been so many mafia wins this year? How can we balance it out next year so that the ratio remains more 50/50?

    There have been only two non-micro town wins this year, and that was Revolution Mafia and Disinheritance. That is frankly pretty surprising to me.

    posted a message on Mistborn Mafia - Signups!
    Mistborn Mafia

    Sometimes, I worry that I’m not the hero everyone thinks I am.

    The philosophers assure me that this is the time, that the signs have been met. But I still wonder if they have the wrong man. So many people depend on me. They say I will hold the future of the entire world on my arms.

    What would they think if they knew that their champion--the Hero of Ages, their savior--doubted himself? Perhaps they wouldn't be shocked at all. In a way, this is what worries me most. Maybe, in their hearts, they wonder--just as I do.

    When they see me, do they see a liar?

    Welcome to Mistborn Mafia, a Normal game for 16 players!

    This game is based on the popular Mistborn fantasy novel series by Brandon Sanderson. You may recall Twinborn Mafia, which was hosted by Gentleman Johnny around a year ago. Both of our games rely on the same source material, but this game mainly focuses on the first three books (the original trilogy) rather than the Wax and Wayne series. This game will contain spoilers for the first book and minor spoilers for the books thereafter. Knowledge of the source material is unlikely to provide an edge, but it will make you enjoy this game a whole lot more.

    This game contains no neutrals, and there are confirmed to be twelve town and four mafia.

    Mistborn Mafia was reviewed by Ecophagy. For the game's complexity, I would expect some slightly unconventional roles, but nothing that would be too unusual in a Normal.

    Before signing up, it's important to note that mafia games require an extended time commitment. Please only sign-up if you foresee yourself being able to participate for the next several months, and being able to post during that period, on average, at least once every 72 hours, without many absences of four or more days. Due to the way the game works, I will be very aggressive on deadlines, so keep this in mind.

    To join, type /in
    To replace, type /replace
    To spectate, type /spectate

    I recognize that we might not have the playerbase to sustain a bunch of games going on at once, so if this doesn't garner interest in a reasonable amount of time (say, 1-2 weeks), I will bow out until a large game ends and we can run another Mini or something.

    This game features:
    - Aggressive deadlines.
    - A no-nonsense, Normal game. If you don't like the mountains of neutrals that have won games in the past year then this game is for you.
    - A fairly flavorful game. I will try my best to write flavor for this game,
    - Very responsive mod times. I will provide vote counts every day and respond to things quickly, or at least that's the hope. The trains will run on time.
