    tbh I'd think in a fairly random bloodbath of unstructured votes our chances of winning aren't half bad at all, so it's not a bad thing
    So we're just going with the flow, are we? Pretty interested to find out how this day ends, really.

    I was originally dreaming up how this strategy will work but now it's obviously not going to work given how many shots are being fired already

    Votes from guards are all COMPLETELY random, and they will vote the King, often at random. However, if a vote will result in the King being lynched, then the vote is not done and the guard "Reshuffles" his vote. A vote against the king by any guard will not result in any 'suspicion' unless such vote endagers the king of being lynched.

    I'm confused. Is the guard allowed to reshuffle their vote?

    Tbh... I really think from now on that we should have one person lead a vote. With random votes, it's giving the assassin clues as to who is not the King, although we could be tricking him by having a few people put votes on the King :PP

    Uh, no. What I meant is
    Let's say
    A (King) has 2 votes
    B (???) has 3 votes
    C (???) has 2 votes

    Suppose Guard X still has not voted. He assigns every player a number except himself, so A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 and so on and gets a random number generator out. The Random number generator reads 1! The Guard does not want to vote for the king however, as this will endanger the king, so without posting anything, he gets the random number generator again and plugs in some numbers; and this time it reads 3, so he votes for C instead.

    Oh right, so the last guard doesn't tell anyone that he used the random generator twice?

    Also: Please only lynch one person at a time guys; I just found out that they get lynched simultaneously which is rather inefficient; since if one of the people lynched is the assassin he will have less targets to pick from and therefore has a bigger chance of getting it right

    MathQ123 currently has 4 votes on her!

    If she gets 6 votes, she will automatically get lynched regardless of following votes (as there will not be enough votes on one person to be able to counter the vote)
