Thank you for hosting, Ara!
really wish i could but i think Champs Finale starts around then or soon after
I’d like something like this.
Whether it’s a single tag like “@All” or “@Everyone” a la Discord, or an auto-tagged one-click insert player list. It’d be super useful.
Excited for the opportunity.
Thanks, all, for the support.

But they’re all pretty phenomenal.
Mudkip/Marshtomp run the first four gyms, they’re untouchable.
Alpha Sapphire is one of the best games in the series. You'll enjoy it!
Thank you @SmartBomb for hosting and for the phenomenal flavour.
Thank you to @Spiny Creature and @Keldeo for welcoming me into the wolf pack and playing together as a team.
And well played by the village across the board - you made this difficult and stressful and challenging and fun. All ways that I most enjoy playing werewolf. I’m so impressed by, and so happy to have been a part of, a group of players that were all in all kind and well-intentioned. We were able to debate and disagree but it never turned into name-calling or screaming matches.
After giving it some time to let it sink in, this has been one of my most, if not the most, rewarding games I’ve ever played. A lot of players dislike playing as a wolf, but I find so much joy in playing the “bad guy,” creating an increasingly difficult puzzle for so many talented players to attempt to solve. Being able to trick friends along the way, and the fact that I fooled many more in Spec Chat was a total bonus. Games of this quality and competition come around only every so often, so I will cherish this experience.
Regardless of who advances this game in particular means a lot and I am grateful I was able to share it with many old friends and several new ones. Hopefully we can all play together again soon. Thank you!
Next I want silver. Then shawnad. Keldeo, roro, SC.
I’m willing to vote before SC if everyone wants.
@roro__b I just read through your interaction analysis and have one word: WTF
I think Keldeo said it, but to probably already be in an I’m Schlage position if a wolf, you just stretched the field so far. The wolves in this position without a doubt are strapped for mental fortitude and the ability to continue solving, and that’s what you did, across several hours and thousands of posts. Beyond that, what I find most telling is your entire progression.
I feared when you were working on your wallpost that you were going to construct a narrative around the three of us being a wolf. That everything you “found” made us look bad. But that wasn’t the case at all.
Like I’ve been telling you, I’ve pushed and pressured everyone. I’ve take time to meticulously engage everyone. I am now a wolf, period - but beyond that, there is nobody I could possibly be partnered with. I feel like I am clear here. I think the wolves may even be acknowledging this. I’m a pain in the ass to push when I’m a villager, especially at this point in the game.
Thoughts regarding the content itself... I kind of forgot about how strongly I felt about silver earlier. shawnad I’ve always been skeptical and fearful of, but never certain. I looked (and felt) certain about silver a few days ago but did some rereading and retooling and world building and wound up with Squigs. Which, albeit, I still feel could be a wolf, but silver is in my eyesight here again. I find your silver/shawnad w/w theory extremely compelling and actually pretty likely, it started off for questionable reasoning and has never changed or exactly revisited between the two of them. Just idle “if you’re a wolf, wow!” commentary.
I don’t know why they’re unwilling to look at one another again today, like despite my inquiries. It’s F7. None of my reads felt good enough this morning not to reconsider.
Thank you for those posts. I want silver and Squigs to vote one another so we can confirm one is a wolf, then we’ve got to get further on the same page: bottom line, I am willing to vote silver if we can talk about it some more.
I know purity through posts and her opening this morning was that of a villager.
She never “fakes” this if it implicates one of her teammates. There’s no need to draw that much attention to two of the three wolves alive. It is a game-throwing play.
I will not be convinced otherwise.
Either way, she isn't convincing SC she's lying, roro obviously not. Not you. Not me. It's probably easier to bring forth the Thunderdome in that scenario than convincing everyone else SC faked all of this.
Wolves got caught with their pants down. Sucks to suck.
I’m arguing that bussing him yesterday would be dumb as $#@!, but if they did, you never could’ve seen him target RE. So you wouldn’t be the most likely NK.
You’re arguing “Why not bus Squigs today?” and I don’t have an answer to that beyond “Why not try to win today?” Nobody seems to have a $#@!ing clue what’s going on or who thinks what and I hate this whole thing, but that’s my best guess.
Still, this is all moot.
I think a wolf exists between the two. You obviously do.
We need to work together.
Like, they lead the wagon on him, after he barely posts... He lies down and just dies, then they’re BOTH alive in F5?
That’s wicked suspect. So my point stands, that’s a dumb reason.
I don’t know if this is even a point I feel like arguing with you over, though, so I’m moving on.
Do not world build based on words said today. We have literally 4 full days of information at our fingertips. Build from there.
Because if they bus the guy outright, you CANNOT explain away why they’re both still alive the next day.
The wolves went for the win today and got $#@!ed by NAs and are backpeddling.
Also I don’t buy into the “bus Squigs, go deeper” line of thought.
If they’re wolves they’re literally one wrong vote away from winning the entire $#@!ing game. Squigs (with all due respect) has put in minimal effort and has had ridiculously questionable reads, given his explanations.
And yet we’re having a drawn out debate over who it is.
I just feel like it’s Squigs here and we’re all about to throw this away.
SC what do I have to do to convince you I’m a villager here?
My biggest fear right now is not voting Squigs and voting incorrectly in the process and losing to that slot.
I’ve screwed up a lot in this game but I feel confident about my read there. yog did. Apoc did, too. Players I trust.
That’s where my heart is at the moment.
New theory: What if it’s shawnad/silver/Squigs? And shawnad is trying to find an option or reason to pit one of them against someone outside of the circle?
That ruins my earlier theory that silver/Squigs aren’t w/w, but maybe I was just wrong.
This feels possible?
Wait, shawnad, if you believe both silver and SC are villagers, that makes Squigs a lock wolf, no?
Why’re you being so ticky-tacky about who he votes? Why aren’t you beating the “silver is a villager!” drum harder?
dobby my biggest frustration with your play today has been you picking and choosing which dead villager reads you want to apply where.
I don’t trust shawnad either, but c’mon, work with me here.
I’ve been reassessing both all day and I’m closer to the middle than I’ve probably been across the last two days. As it stands I like your treatment of shawnad today more than I like her’s of you. I get the impression she’s keeping you at arm’s length.
My biggest concern about you in this vein is your ability to “find villagers” and still vote them. Distorted probably fits this bill best. I feel like it’s easier as a wolf to find villagers and be “correct,” to avoid getting caught up in lies and being held accountable for being wrong on a push you made. That being said, if this game is any indication, I don’t peg you as a scared player and through osmosis, a scared wolf.
So I have mixed emotions about you. My biggest fear is certainly all the dead players that wolf read you. There’s quite a few, this has been covered.
Would you say it’s worthwhile looking into the reads of dead villagers? I think so.
What makes this all suck so hard is that if I had to pick my most likely wolves after Squigs, independent of one another, it’s probably you and dobby at this moment. But you and dobby don’t make sense as a team at all.
I’ve failed to mention it earlier, but silver’s immediate villa read of me the moment I called him a villa, makes me paranoid.
He doesn’t exactly bother with me much UNTIL THEN. So I’d like to think I’m correct and we found one another, and admittedly it all feels good, but how is he so certain so quickly.
I want to know more about what you liked about me yesterday @silver.
But FMPOV you have to understand that skeeves me out a little bit, because I think if silver is a wolf you’re almost always his partner. The way you’ve both shielded one another it seems, and the fact that you’re both good players, I feel like I’m looking at a facade that makes less sense the longer re-evaluation doesn’t take place. I’m trying to get everyone on the record here because I intend to vote correctly today, and keep playing tomorrow. Having that information fresh only helps.
When you do it I’m less concerned about.
