Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Yes to all.

Giving away your true target is just asking to get blocked, but at least one mafia will be vulnerable each night unless they want to gamble and leave the lynchpin vulnerable.

Scumhunting (and later, townhunting) would be critical to not keep silent on however.
