The Resistance: Avalon - 2019 Match 2 Game Thread


#193

Well, while we wait for the results, I’d like to draw attention to this:

If this is true, why didn’t rho give me NC instead of giving me NC-lite?


#194

Did @rho21 have an NC to give?


#195

I gave Chicago Proxy to soon and In the Spotlight to scott.


#196

Ha, sorry, I remembered incorrectly, I blame Monday!


#197

That was speculation based on common assumptions. That was what should be true if Mission 2 is clean and exactly one of Kane and Casey are Evil. But no one knows for sure until the end. I posted the lists because I can’t keep things in my head easily and wanted to organize my thoughts.

Also: if you are a Loyal Servant, don’t despair. The order/usual assumptions hurt Evil more than Good. If you have a game where all mission picks are clean, Evil is screwed (obviously), but if a mission fails, the neglected knight will have a chance for redemption.

Basically, if you’re really Good, we’ll figure it out.

Card Update:

@soondifferent Chicago Proxy

@CaseyRobinson
@Dave_Perkins
@Snebmi
@rowe33

@rowe33 please distribute:

Take Responsibility: You must take a Plot card from another player / One-time use – The player to whom the Leader passes this card must take one Plot card from any other player.

No Confidence: You may null an approved Vote and force leadership change / One time use – The player to whom the Leader passes this card may use this card to reject an approved Mission team (successful Vote). Using this card counts as a failed Vote

Then select 5 players for team 4. Team 4 requires two failure votes to fail.


#199

Well damn. And now we need more information cards and haven’t drawn them.


#200

That makes ZERO sense, unless we have two evils on the team. I don’t see why a single evil on mission 2 would ever vote success to tie it up.


#201

I’m shocked! Shocked! Well, not that shocked.


#202

Best guess, Rho, Scott and Casey are the evils.

Rho gives Scott the in the spotlight knowing he won’t highlight a evil, and Casey gives Scott the NC so he had give Kane the OC. Scott signaled to Casey that he wasn’t going to vote fail on the first team.


#203

Heh. If @rowe33 is evil, then good is probably beaten.


#204

Not sure that makes much sense. (I mean, I know it’s wrong because I’m good, but even so).

Seems more likely to me that there was only one evil on the first team but two on the second/third. It goes a little way towards explaining how the second was allowed to pass.


#205

You’ve got that backwards. @CaseyRobinson first gave OC to Kane, then Kane accused him, then he gave the NC to me, presumably because he assumed I was loyal if Kane was evil.

If Casey was evil, why would he expose himself to a loyal player? He could literally have picked anyone else.

So if Casey is loyal, then the baddies are @Dave_Perkins, @Snebmi, and @CF_Kane. That pretty much fits the facts, except it still leaves open why @Dave_Perkins didn’t fail mission 2. Anyone have a better explanation?


#206

I’m not convinced that’s true: we’d talked a fair bit about it in here, so a lot of choices would have looked suspicious to the point of a soft reveal.

Not that I have a better explanation right now. I’ll have a think about it.


#207

Is this the signal for someone else to fail?

Sure. I’m not certain, just seems the most likely scenario. I used the spotlight on @Snebmi on mission 2 because I was suspicious. Then after the mission @Snebmi selected @Dave_Perkins to vet him, which made me think it was unlikely they are both evil.


#208

Luckily for 5 of us, this is not the case! Though at a loss on how to untangle this mess until I lay out the ‘if X is evil, then Y is evil, etc’. I was hoping we were all set but of course that is almost never the case when I get that feeling.


#209

This is a very strange statement when you’ve just been confirmed as good by someone else.


#210

Or is this @Snebmi signaling that he will fail the mission?


#211

Hah, good crosspost!


#212

@rowe33, if you trust me, that TR has to come to me, or someone will use it to take my NC.
