We can probably lynch both tonight. Do we still think it's optimal to lynch both if possible?
Telling each person to vote with 50% chance doesn't work, because mafia will swing it in their favor.
Instead, take everyone who voted yesterday. Split that group in half, and tell each half to vote for one of them.

Problems:
* it's late in the day, people might not get the info in time (though we could PM/text etc if we're being hype)
* It's easy to claim you didn't know what to do
* Someone needs to organize this, and kinda quick, if we agree it's a good idea.

Credit for the idea goes to miles
send thoughts plz

This is a really terrible idea. It makes it easy for mafia to swing the vote to the innocent person or mostly-inactive players to fuck it up. We should settle on one person to lynch, and I stand by my statement that it should be Jakob, unless a vigilante is available to test one of them.

We could agree that no townsperson should deviate from their assigned vote. That makes it super sketchy to swing the vote, and beneficial for town because we know who did it, what with votes being public.

As for inactives, that's why we'd only involve people who voted yesterday, b/c they're hopefully active enough to be reached before day end.

Also it could be safe to try it and agree in advance that if we can't get a confirmation from everyone who voted yesterday in the last half hour then bail towards jakob.

Here's the proposed vote assignments.
Italics are people who expressed preferences already.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

Post here and edit the sheet when you confirm your vote.

If anyone has not confirmed by 10:30pm then just vote for jakob.

If this goes through, and anyone votes against what they confirmed they would do then they're real sketchy.
Remember that mixed in with people who really think this is a bad idea will be mafia trying to break it.

I confirm, I'm voting for jakob.

People should confirm here too, so trolling the spreadsheet is infeasable.

If you know someone who has not confirmed their vote, please find them and ping them and get them to know what's going on.

If you are not on this list, please DO NOT VOTE today or you will mess it up

Daniel Grazian wants you to know he agrees that this is a stupid idea.

I'm not sure I would have called it a stupid idea, but it would take a lot of (difficult) coordination, and even if it worked it would not be my preference.

That's who I was going to vote for anyway. I didn't think it was a bad idea. I thought it was unlikely to work but I don't really care since the other one will be lynched tomorrow anyway

Voting for jakob because Lily has lied to me enough times in various mafia games that I know she's a good liar. So I just assume anything slightly sketchy is her lying again.
