    You lucky bastard, I had a plan to do that but the only time I've ever gotten to be a veteran I got killed on the first night without going on alert! : (

    Yeah winning as the Godfather has a sort of extra flair to the win.

    Best of all is starting as Mafioso, betraying your Godfather for credibility with the townsfolk, becoming the Godfather, and then winning

    I've only played 3~4 times and yet to have experience a game where it wasn't just random bursts of consciousness. Usually it's just "HE WHO SMELT IT DEALT IT" or "SUSPICIOUS" each 'day'. I did manage to execute the miafaso and lynch the godfather in sequence as the Jailor so that was great (I previously jailed the executioner/jester and used her as bait).

    Spending far too much time on this. Currently giving Varth's strategy a go as a pathetic idiot called Twiffle the Meek.

    I've been Serial Killer for only 3 times now and I've played for 4 days straight. Had a really good run as SK just now and in the end I stood alone against Mafia. They were probably the best Mafia group I've encountered so far.

    I find that when that happens it is usually because the mafia, serial killer, jester, and executioner have worked to make it happen; chaos always favors the underdog, so they are the ones who really want unwarranted accusations flying everywhere. Once you point that out, the crowds tends to settle down and listen to your reasoned arguments.

    Except for when they don't. : P But you will always lose games sometimes no matter what your strategy is.

    In my experience, when you are the SK you want to kill most of the mafia before endgame. In endgame they will consider you a greater threat than the townsfolk, and they are also better-equipped to catch you than the townsfolk.

    EDIT I FINALLY GOT TO BE A VETERAN AGAIN, AND I TRIED MY PLAN, AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY

    It wasn't exactly like Will's plan though. Instead of drawing attention with crazy finger pointing I simply claimed to be a jailer. "awesome, finally i get to be a jailer, been lookin forward to this"

    When townies rebuked me for announcing my role so early, I said "oh whoops lol, sorry, i am new"

    That night, SK and Mafioso both attacked me and were shot dead. The next day I revealed my ruse to the townies and took richly-deserved credit for the veteran kills, to much congratulation.

    Over the next two days I dared the Godfather to come after me, calling him a coward each time he didn't show up. Finally I said "damn now I'm out of alerts! DOC, PROTECT ME"

    Godfather attacked me that night.

    I wasn't out of alerts, I had been bluffing the previous two nights. (Unfortunately the doctor also visited me that night. ACCEPTABLE LOSS)

    Framer was promoted to Mafioso and I woulda killed him too but the real jailer beat me to the punch. : ( Can't kill everybody, I guess. Unless you are the SK.

    The Serial Killer can't kill the Executioner and the God Father, I believe.

    Also, a tip for future SK victims, try not to attract unwanted attention when chatting, those who use cap locks or talk a lot tend to die sooner than the townies who remain quiet.

    Nah I believe him; by his own admission he's only played 3~4 games. I am pretty sure I had all wins too at that point.

    Was able to give the Veteran bait strategy a go twice today. These were the results:

    Game 1:

    Pretended to be a new player and asked what the Escort did. Got chewed out for revealing my role and went on alert that night. Both the SK and the Mafioso came after me, both killed along with a Lookout (oh well). SK had begun a kill list in his will so town knew exactly what I was.

    Spent the next few days calling out other players who were obviously lying (townies are really hard to convince sometimes to lynch people). In the end I got taken out by the Jester who had been framed two nights in a row by the Framer, but was a fun opener.

    Town won as the Jailor executed the Godfather the same night and the town lynched the framer the next day.


    Game 2:

    Similar start out, pretended to screw up a whisper to a player I knew from a previous game telling him I was a Jailor. Got laughed at and went on alert. Took out the Mafioso and the real Jailor (who I assume was quietly calling bullshit). Town wasn't too happy with the result, so didn't own up to it.

    After several rounds of nothing I admitted I was the Vet to help with a lynching that didn't pass despite the Sheriff revealing himself to instigate it. Pulled the I'm out of alerts line, but told the Doctor to protect the Sheriff as I was a useless character without them and he was more important. Went on alert and ending up killing the Godfather in addition to the Doctor (who didn't listen), the Sheriff (for some reason) and a Lookout. The town was not happy with me at all.

    The SK never took the bait and killed me the next night when I wasn't on alert.

    The bait strategy does work, but I've always wound up with a decent amount of collateral. I guess some of it depends on if the Townies can figure out what you're trying to pull off.

    I tried out the Vetbait strategy and it worked out pretty well for me. I did kill like three townies in one night, in addition to a Mafioso, but in the end I won as literally the last man standing.

    So I was in the middle of a Mexican standoff between the SK and the GF, the thing is nobody knew who was who, so I convinced the GF not to hang me because otherwise the SK would instantly win.
    That night, the SK attempted to kill me and miserably failed because I still had two alerts as a veteran.

    The following round was awkward, there were two of us (GF and I) and we couldn't lynch each other, so I assumed the GF would kill me and used the last alert I had, but I wasn't attacked. As a result, I died in the next round, but it was a fair fight IMO.

    Wouldn't the GF auto win in that case, or were there more townies?

    Those are the only two times I've ever been Vet. Finally got to play as a Spy, which either is actually a sucky role or I just wasn't very good at it, as the only value I figured you could do is record who was framed.

    Had a really awesome game just before as Doctor. We literally were a shit town group with six good townies gone in the first 2-3 rounds. I was able to to figure out some of the roles with who was consistent/changing and made an alliance with the Executioner and Jester to root out the mafia, for which I also created a private alliance with the SK. In the end we were able to make a comeback and betrayed the SK before taking out the last mafioso (after wasting the mafioso's time by making him attack the SK).

    I thought the same, but nothing happened after the SK was killed (I suggested we were in limbo) and it was pretty awkward, so the second night after the SK's death the GF assassinated me.

    I really enjoyed being a Mayor and roleplaying as Walter White.

    When I'm not copying someone's else name (instead of using "l" I use capital "i" and viceversa), I go by Patrick Star.
