Good game, guys!
Ouch, three Mafia, I was sure the whole time there would only be two. And one of the non-Mafia was a survivor, so the number of Mafia matches the number of townies this early. I didn't see that coming.
I was suspicious of Hippo though, just thought he sounded scummy throughout. Nice to see I was right. But I thought I wouldn't get people to follow me in a lynch, Hippo would have fought it loudly and asked for proof, which I didn't have. Never good when one of those who post the most is Mafia, they are tough to get rid of. So many players are quiet and don't want to get into a fight, so they shy away from following a vote on an active player, afraid he will target them for a debate.
I really thought it would be a good idea to bandwagon on jonty. If he lied about his role, a Mafia would be gone. If he was telling the truth, he could place votes on someone else, and we would have a chance to get a Mafia that way. (I didn't think Little Witt would be Mafia, he didn't sound like it, so while I said jonty could target the inactive Witt, I really hoped he would pick someone else.) But - he didn't use the ability. And now here we are.
Also too bad that I as Watcher was killed the first night. Or so I thought. But we seemed to have had quite a few power roles. (While my second power role was completely passive; Gambler with 50 percent chance of escaping a night kill. I missed my Watcher role, with that I could have helped out.)
