Looking back on Day 4, it looks like Teddy really changed his vote but JFG was too quick for him. I had much faith in Teddy but...

That was the plan. I was going to try and unvote before he got his post in, which would expose him, but unfortunately he was a few seconds faster than me. It was incredibly risky and I probably shouldn't have tried it, but it almost worked. :-[

That's kind of a cheap way to play if that's what you were trying to do. I doubt it would work very often as well.

You were trying to get him to vote so that when he pushed submit your unvote would be there before his and you would use his vote as evidence that he was mafia? Is that how it was supposed to work?

Not sure if that is cheating or just part of the game (J should clear that up). If it was part of the game looks like you peaked out from behind cover to see if you could spot the shooter and got hit between the eyes. That sucks.

:-b How is that cheating? What rule would it break? Oh, none. And jfg, what did you think I was doing last night when I unvoted if you only realized it now?

If it was part of the game looks like you peaked out from behind cover to see if you could spot the shooter and got hit between the eyes.

I'd say a better comparison is I threw a grenade in the room I was in and didn't get out quick enough.

That does seem a little cheap but I doubt it ever gets tried again and if it does I doubt it ever works....It doesn't matter to me if someone wants to take such a large risk like that....its your life your playing with!! :-)

It is a solid move IMO something that I would do even though it is cheap. Exploiting the rules of the game is part of the fun. Very clever except it didn't work!! :-D

It's not so cheap now that I think about it, because it would never work... I would be informed that a new reply had been posted before it submitted.
