But I was trying to coax SS into telling who he would investigate if president and use it to try to get him some L credit and to steer him towards one of us.

My investigation would have been AS if people weren't against it. I would have proclaimed him as L either way. If he was F, I have more information and throw people off. If he is L, I now have an L who is doubting soy, and therefore doubting the claim that I am F.

GG F's.

Way too little too late, but I should have been more forceful in arguing against SS in a government. I'm not sure what the math is exactly, but I can't see how electing a chancellor who was in a contested investigation makes sense for the Liberals - especially in a Hitler wins situation.

It was mentioned early on, but dismissed (probably by the other F's mostly, but I don't recall and don't really want to hunt it down) - but it seems to be L-friendly to remove both parties to a contested investigation from the pool. You know that you aren't removing 2 Ls, you might be removing 2 Fs (probably not, but maybe), and removing one of each improves the ratio of Ls to Fs. If there were special L powers then maybe, but without those it seems like a no brainer.

Yeah I agree. With SS, I ended up voting Ja just because I still thought YT was liberal and if SS was Hitler, they'd win no matter what with all the F votes coming in. Too bad he was Hitler, was 3rd on my list of candidates behind DW and PQ.

Notes for future Fs: If you happen to go first and are dealt FFF, it's probably best to investigate an L and be honest about the investigation. I think the L credit on you would benefit you more than the F suspicion you would cast on an L.

I hope it was enjoyable by all.

As for the Presidential Peek power . . . I see that as being paired with an investigation for the first two F policies passed, but the second will be whatever the first did not choose.

A similar pairing for the assassination; but I'm still thinking through how this might need to be adjusted for a smaller number of players.

Another thought about the Peek is that rather than seeing the next three cards, knowing what the F/L distribution of the remaining cards.
