Hm. Scrog's last post in the BMOTM thread suggests that he's going to be on vacation and not online until Sunday.
I would text his telephone, but his number is lost to today's factory reset. I had his number somehow from before Bonnaroo, and I searched my Facebook & Inforoo inboxes, but I can't for the life of me seem to find it. If he's unreachable here until Sunday, that's the only way I can get a hold of him.
36 hours from the start of this runoff would be in the wee hours of Saturday morning. I can't apply that rule in the event of his absence before this runoff times out - not until after the weekend.
Adding to the confusion will be the fact that Monday is the 4th of July, a holiday - and presumably another day in which I cannot close voting.
I hate to say it, but I think my hands are tied as for as Scrog's deciding vote being up in the air. At least until Tuesday.
Ten of you have voted. I presume one player takes our final weekday from us, and the holiday definitely shortens our next week to four days. As Referee, I reserve the right to close the vote during this weekend due to its unusual extended circumstances.
36 hours = around 3am Saturday = weekend = can't close voting without Scrog's vote
I didn't write this particular rule, but I have to enforce it. I wrote an amendment precisely because I thought the rule needed some refinement - it probably still does, a subject we can discuss postgame.
What it comes down to now, though, is I can't take any action to close this particular vote until either (the presumably unreachable) Scrog votes in 2-3 days or Tuesday. I'm already exercising discretion for the sake of expediency by declaring I'll close voting on the weekend. I don't think there's anything else I can do about it.
The question is why do you think he's mafia. The only explanation you've given is that he was quiet but just present enough to make you suspicious. But in the same statement, you admitted that's how he's been the last few games. In my experience, that's how he always is in Mafia. So, it's not a terribly convincing argument. Other than that, it seems like you've been somewhat adamant but vague.
Long story short, EAP died doing laps in the pool.
(A player suggested Kevin Smith film-themed death scenes, which I hadn't thought of going into this... but those are far more plentiful for the males than the females. Links or suggestions would be appreciated.)
Night One has ended; Day Two has begun.
