People should check out the discussion for the previous two games: viewtopic.php?f=387&t=6204 and viewtopic.php?f=420&t=6424

Some stuff has changed since then (e.g. the IAP game had desperadoes, role investigators, and the silence mechanic), but a lot of stuff is the same. The IAP discussion talks more about role strategy, especially given that the spring game didn't have new players.

Main takeaway: Remember to use your powers! In particular, remember to use pre-day powers on today, day 0, before midnight tonight. Otherwise they'll go to waste for the day!

Is it worth checking if people still have their starting items? (I.e. for the purpose of checking that mafia haven't been selling their items for spirit searches to mess up spirit search results). It doesn't *fully* check this, given that mafia can transfer items at instant speed from a distance, but if we never do this, spirit searches results are barely useful at all, instead of what they are (minor updates in the direction of the stated result, even if we believe the result-giver.)

Gurev and I did this with one another (I did this to gurev shortly after posting, FWIW, which isn't much).

Another piece of advice:

If you ever see something suspicious, post about it! Such things might include:

1. Seeing somebody in a location where you didn't expect them to be.
2. You have any reason to doubt someone's alibi.
3. They seem to be doing a lot of typing that looks consistent with talking with mafia buddies (especially if they're not doing much in the Town Square.)
4. They seem to be significantly more or significantly less involved in the game than you would expect.
5. An interaction with them seems suspicious or just a bit off.
