Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Not much to worry about until final results are in anyhow. Though I’m glad xorx is updating this. It’s much appreciated and adds some excitement tracking the leaderboard.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

The top 14 players will make the finals. I'll be doing game scoring out of 420 rather than 35, as it's divisible by every draw size, but yes: 420 for a solo 420/n for an n-way draw There's a detailed description of how ties will be broken in the opening post of this thread. Just an FYI xorxes, it s...

Re: Financial Advice and Suggestions

Regarding Roth IRA or Traditional IRA: For the most part it’s just a matter of whether you think your tax bracket will be higher now or when you take the money out in retirement. But obviously we don’t know what taxes will look like in the future so it’s a bit of a guessing game. In my opinion, it’s...

Re: Trade War _good_

Your absecence made you rusty ND. It’s ok, you’ll get back into form soon.

Free trade is very much a modern conservative pillar - what it used to be hundreds of years ago is pretty irrelevant. To me, this pretty much undermines any good the tax cuts will do (if this keeps escalating)

That’s the spirit! Teach the leftist cultists how dumb they are by pointing to a leftist tariff stance Trump is taking. That will show them!

I don’t really understand the appeal of watches. Watch lovers - why do you love watches? What am I missing?

Re: Convince me to take up smoking

When we do retirement analyses at work for clients, we tell them that to reach their retirement goal without running out of money they either have to save more money each month or take up smoking.

Re: Mafia tutorial / newbie game?

Never played. Would like to give it a try. Please add me. Also can the Dr save himself? It depends on the specific game setup - they all vary slightly, but the GM outlines the setup beforehand. Typically (on webdip at least) the Doctor can save himself, but cannot save the same person (including hi...

Re: Mafia tutorial / newbie game?

I'll ask Pouncy. She'll probably play.

Also, with only 9 players, a game would only last like a maximum of 10 days, so we have a decent amount of time before the 4th.

This is a tips sheet I sent out to new players for the last game. While some of the information is specific to that game, all mafia games have the same sort of structure.

Re: Hydra Mafia

Sure Jamie, I'm down for you to round out the team. Its a bit silly because at least a few people will die without being able to actually ever play, but because your team has its own chat, you can still be involved. Worst case scenario you don't like it - but because its really only a 9 "player" gam...

Re: MAFIA XXXVI: ODDJOB'S REVENGE

First off, congrats to the scumteam - I thought you all played very well. There was no weak play from any of you, and without the cop scans this would have been tremendously one-sided. Second, I want to thank brainbomb for filling in for me at the two deadlines where it was difficult for me - much a...
