Wow, just wow! What an end. I hope that everyone enjoyed the game as much as I did.
Of the 3 games I have played, I have now been on the winning team just once, with my single team win being the game where I was slaughtered by the town on day one.
You've got quite a fun and different playstyle to a lot of players on GRcade so was interesting trying to figure you out this game haha
Hope you continue to sign up to them in future
Thanks, I shall do! I do find it fascinating to see different people's tactics. I'm not going to outplay the most experienced players, but having been on the Conformists the first time I played AYA did help to give me some insight on their likely approach. Thankfully, having raised those suspicions early on and getting a little lucky that they were correct was probably what saved me from initially being the only lynch candidate on day 2 and instead surviving to day 6.
I've long had a passion for data which gives me something to get my head in to and bring something to the game, though it takes a few days for the game to develop before it can be applied effectively and of course, the bad guys will be avoiding voting in a pack in order not to leave any trail. I really enjoyed trying to understand the mechanics of the etang, though I imagine there was a mix of people, some thinking my slight obsession was helpful and others a pointless distraction! Keeping my identity secret in future games will be difficult once I start spaffing spreadsheets everywhere.
These games are very interesting as you sit with multiple threats, aiming to avoid both the risk from the town and the bad guys. The right combination of probability, perception, risk and luck is all at play and any one of those can catch you out. As a whole, the forum is strong on perception, which is probably why the town outperformed on their kill ratio. It should be expected that the town will collectively pick up on flags and that's why it's more than a game of chance and why odds should probably be weighted slightly against them by design.
I've noticed that some experienced players just ignore challenges against them. I called out one move as potential alpha and it was just ignored. Better to let allegations be forgotten than spend pages defending something which otherwise would be forgotten, regardless of what side you are on!
