Re: Reversi Mini: Losing is Winning (Day 2)

The Town wins under those conditions. But since this is Reversi, the town players would lose if the Town faction wins.

Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Reversi Well, the cop power would have been far more interesting in a larger game. There's no chance to even consider sanities with just one use. Peaceful Whale: You'll have to get used to stopping by here on a regular basis, and try again later. Maybe set yourself an alarm to check in before be...

After a day of hard work, scavenging the houses for good cloth and the basements for alcohol to fuel it, a makeshift hot air balloon rose over the town of Meaford. By consensus, Jimbob was chosen to board the craft, and he slowly rose off into the sky on an easterly wind. With any luck, he'd drift ...

There are no spoiler-reading powers, night chat, or other effects beyond the thread in this game.
