Game Master’s Notes
Well, that was an unusual Day. Not only did the player with the most votes not get eliminated (again) but someone with no votes was revealed. Huh.
Now, I get it, it is super easy to speculate as to why things have happened the way they have. There are so many ways this game could go when thinking about the events of ADSOM that it’s impossible to stop your mind from trying to figure out all the possibilities. But I’m going to try and warn you against spending too much energy on this because in the grand scheme of things, your goal is to eliminate anyone who is a threat to your team. The more time you energy you waste on trying to figure out the set-up, the less energy you’re using towards figuring out who to eliminate. (I think Day Three is actually a good example of this. How much analysis was done on set-up possibilities vs figuring out who to vote? Did anyone even really try to use the information provided by the Cultafia reveal to make arguments?)
In other news, I am moving this weekend! Dave and I have finally found a flat and will be in the process of moving everything over and buying all the necessities. Unfortunately, with a new place comes the need to wait for the internet man to come over and set everything up and that won’t be happening right away. As a result, my availability to check in to the Games and social media will be quite limited between November 2nd – 7th. I will do my best to check in on my phone when I can, but during this time I’d say if you have any serious questions or concerns to reach out to Inge or Crini instead.
It is now Day Four.
You have until Sunday 9pm GMT to discuss suspicions and cast your votes. Once the deadline has been reached, the person with the most votes will be eliminated.
