    Anyways, the last few games i have played the mafia were quite happy to let two village wagons race each other, which is why i looked towards one off votes.

    It would make a lot of sense for the premium kill to be the village vig. Killing the second place wagon so they don't become a distraction is a great day 1 vig move. It helps us move past the "he survived a day 1 wagon, he must be mafia!" hysteria that gets us a lot on day 2. Plus, it's not like the vig is going to have a whole lot of better leads.

    If the dice roll is that he chose all villagers (not impossible or even completely unlikely), .

    Very unlikely actually .8 ^ 9 = 13%

    We should assume at least one mafia is a shard

    actually, if the acquaintance has to have only shard people alive at the end of the game, and the demon king osa cannot be killed until all the demons are dead, it doesn't matter if there are shard holders in the mafia. The acquaintance needs the king dead, mechanically, and the only way to do that is to kill all of the mafia.

    I mean, there could be loads of stuff that he can do/knows that invalidates that, but currently I can't see how the mafia could ever work with him, since his win con ultimately demands their removal.

    Unless OSA gets revealed and it turns out that he got sharded. In which case, whooooooooo

    The MrT wagon doesn't seem to initially have been a wagon, but I somewhat agree with getting rid of someone with the smallest hint of suspicion. Lord knows I've set my sights on one person then wouldn't let go until days later when they turned out green...

    Oliver didn't care for the council. They were corrupt. Well, more corrupt than he was, but he was honest about who he was and that made all the difference in the world. Burter wouldn't lift a finder to help him out if the tables were turned. If they thought he was worth getting rid of, Oliver couldn't even fathom coming up with reasons to save his skin.

    Because his wincon is to have the ONLY people alive at the end of the game be sharded.

    People are assuming the Mafia Boss isn't sharded.

    if the demon king does not have a shard, then he does not fall under the acquaintance's win condition (all players alive must have shards).

    you can't kill the demon king until all demons are dead

    so if the demon king, specifically, does not have a shard, then the acquaintance must see them killed.

    Poor assumption. If any of the mafia are sharded, then he has to be one of them. Otherwise the A's wincon is impossible.

    Based on this reasoning and Phyphor's count, which put Megafrost ahead by 4 votes, I agree that Premium was likely the victim of a vig; 4 votes seems like a lot of ground for a manipulation to cover (disclaimer: this is only my second Main, so maybe those abilities are more common/powerful than I'm used to).

    what, why?

    it would be the same goal as any serial killer. Whittle down both sides until you can reasonably kill enough to be the last person standing (+ your shards)

    Demonking: No Shard, invincible until all minions are dead
    Demon minion: sharded

    now, draw me up a scenario where the A wins by having only sharded people alive. you have to be able to move shards for that.

    well the mafia is listed as having shard removal powers (unless that just means killing, which, I guess it could)
    Shards are removed upon death and by village or mafia special powers.

    the "and" here makes me assume that it is something other than straight killing someone, since that's the same thing as death.

    So if that's the case, and they have to have a shard, it seems like it wouldn't last long?

    Its not so much that A's wincon would be impossible. Its that it would be too heavily village aligned. It would be barely neutral at that point.

    If I was the Demon King and I knew that keeping the shard in me was the only reason that A wasn't working exclusively against me, I would most definitely never remove it.

    This is, again, assuming that people who are sharded even know they are sharded.

    Easily done. "Aqualung needs only shard-people standing" is not remotely the same as "Aqualung needs all of his shard-people to be the only ones standing."

    The only reason the bolded is true is because we don't know our wincon

    If we knew our wincon, we could ascertain if the acquaintance is contrary to it or not

    Only one faction can win the game, Acquaintance, village, or demon.

    OK

    So as long as there is one person alive who is not sharded when we remove the demons, Aqualung loses.

    So he's basically a SK but with a little less restrictive wincon

    Demon wincon - Kill all the village (edit: and remove all shards?)
    Village wincon - Kill all the demons (edit: AND REMOVE ALL SHARDS)

    So this game will probably not end when the demons outnumber the village, as far as I can tell, in order to give the acquaintance the chance to win

    It'd be better to say The Game will not end when the demons outnumber the rest of us IF there are still shard-people around. If all the shards are removed and the demons outnumber us, we're going to get eaten just as sure as the summer is hot. Then our only consolation is the agavemancer won't be around to gloat at our corpses.

    THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

    Sharded people do not win with the Acquaintance. Your best bet is to get those shards out of you ASAP.

    Because only one faction can win. The Acquaintance can only be defeated if only non-shard people remain. So we'd have to get rid of the shards in order to defeat the Acquaintance. The demons would have to do the same.

    That is what I understood too when it was mentioned only one side could win.

    Do we think the sharded are aware of this? My thoughts lean to no but I have no way of knowing for sure.
    Edit - by aware of this I mean that they are sharded.

    I like saying sharded.

    If our wincon was to kill the demons, then it wouldn't matter if any shards were around and we could have just won.

    Wincons don't have to be mutually exclusive (I think thats the right use of that phrase)
