I wasn't around for by the numbers, so uh
i'll just say i'm cool with it
Also, question for everyone: how would a Mafia game where all votes are sent in PM, and the totals are posted in topic sound?
It'd be interesting, but I feel like it'd remove a lot of the strategy from voting. The mafia would have a huge advantage in that they could simply bandwagon one guy without anyone ever being able to see it, and no one would be able to call people out on voting.
Best left for a side game, not a main game?
Of course, there would be some roles that COULD see what someone voted, or a mechanic where a Villager can choose one person to see who they voted for each night.
But still best left for a side game probably.
