My husband (who also posts on here) did a quick google search and quickly found that this is real, but we still couldn't figure why you didn't just post about it. Now I know why.

I think other message boards are a lot less relaxed than we are. I wouldn't call this an advertisement in the strictest sense of the word, but I see what you're saying. Feel free to "advertise" with us.

As for playing, I'm not a particularly good player. I hone in on the wrong person to disastrous results and totally get caught up in the "wine in front of me". I do play because I can't help myself, but much prefer to host.
Of course, it's always good to be good at the game, but mostly this Championship is about having fun, creating bonds between communities and giving the players and the communities cheering them on a good experience. Your community ultimately decides who they want to send and why, but there is certainly no rule that is has to be "the best player".

A very good question

No, no, no. Your response should have been:

vote: Doctor Who to which he would call you out with OMGUS (oh my god you suck) and then suspect you for voting for him just because he voted for you. Then the WIFOM is fully in play. Hilarity ensues.

that's a good emoji

I'm going on vacation next week, so won't be able to check in here. If you guys happen to decide on a representative for the Mafia Championship in that time, they can reach me on Mafia Universe or Discord (Thingyman#6075). I'll then make sure they get the information they need to get prepared

What's truly shocking to me is that you're the 6,075th "Thingyman" on Discord.

Indeed, we are a whole legion of Thingymen, it's quite amazing

Anyways! Hi again, guys, here for my regular pop-in

There's about a week left until the deadline. I'm still holding out hope that just one person in your community would be up for this challenge. That there's someone willing to volunteer themselves as tribute
