This was a weird one for flavor because typically these games are either flavor that a lot of playing know well or things that can easily be looked up briefly. In this case it was a flavor that about four of us knew really really well (Me, Backslash, Deamon and Laurels) and has a huge back log of 9 seasons and 111 characters (I think not counting judges, frequent guests like Lucian Piane, Candis Cane and Jeff the Absolut vodka rep) that it would be super hard for the rest of everyone to suss things out.

It's nice symmetry for me though because my first mafia ever was something I'd never even heard of (Touhou) and this as probably my last is something I know backwards and forwards.

Good game, all.

Well, nothing ventured nothing gained.

VOTE: Dmboogie

I believe the Alyssa/Coco claims. If they were BOTH mafia that would be a big mafia plus a jester. Also the roles are perfectly suited. I don't know that Alyssa and Coco would be on the same side of anything.

That leaves Boogie and Random. I think Backslash and I are on the same page about the role.

If we lynch boogie and he's mafia = end of game
If we lynch Boogie and he's town= we get another night, one of us will die and we lose a vanilla

If we lynch Random and they're mafia= end of game
If we lynch Random and they're town (and the role I think they are) = we get two nights in a row, two of us die

So, if we're going with a calculated risk it would be Boogie.

I'd bet we do have a protection role and whoever it is lied about their role so as not to be a target. I have a hunch one or two townies isn't being totally honest for the good of town. But that's neither here not there and doesn't matter much.

I have to agree with Zarina (as I have been pretty much all game >____>). Lore's flavor claim is more suspect than Boogie's. I can buy Courtney as a vanilla townie due to her character being kind of not overly nice, but not overly mean.

Something that strikes me as odd though is that if there's Courtney, Adore, Bianca, Ben De La and Trinity this game is very heavy on girls from season 6. I mean, I know it's the most popular season, but it seems over-represented.

Like I said, Courtney as a vanilla townie makes more sense than Raja and a sole survivor. Raja was a fashion girl known for her gorgeous makeup and clothes as well as her clique "The Heathers" which she formed with Carmen, Manilla Luzon and Delta Work. They teamed up together on everything and when she and Manilla got to the end (Manilla was runner-up) Raja and her were still good friends and very happy for one another. "The Heathers" even recorded a horrible version of Lady Marmalade together after the show ended.


So what do? Lore's claim makes less sense, but I'm afraid of splitting the vote so late. How much time do we have?


RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
Well, I guess per Boogie's own admission that's he's vanilla we don't risk that much by lynching him

Based on these claims alone, I'm most iffy about boogie and lore. Raja as an independent survivor wouldn't be my first guess for her role, and boogie is hard to get a read on. I'd like to get some expansion on boogie's claim.

I'm inclined to believe Randomness, since I can easily think of an appropriate role for Ben that would fit with what Randomness has claimed.
Total agreement. Raja is especially odd as a lone survivor considering her tight friend-group now that I think about it. She wouldn't be someone to switch allegiances quickly. It could be a convenient safe claim.


Courtney....I don't know. We weren't given a role to go with it. I dont think of her as a go-to villain and according to everyone Joslyn is not in this game, but I guess it wouldn't be a total shock if she was mafia.

I have a pretty good idea of Random's role.


RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
Bik has an extremely small pool of claims to choose from due to his posting restriction.

RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
You're right. I fucked it up.

FIXED

Flare - Detox (confirmed)
Bikriki ?
Ruggahissy - Adore (Libra, party, ect.)
Primrosette - Sharon
dmboogie - Courtney
Charlotte - Raja (winner)
Randomness - Ben
Slam - Kim Chi (innocent)
Frogue - Alyssa (rival)
Backslash - Coco (rival)

So yeah, I guess it would just be Bik. All these people can't be town though.

Also there should be two kills night one. One missing kill was mafia shooting Deamon the first time. There should have been a second unless the vig also tried to shoot Deamon. We've had two every night since.

RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
So according to everyone so far

Flare - Detox (confirmed)
Bikriki ?
Ruggahissy - Adore (Libra, party, ect.)
Primrosette - Courtney
dmboogie - ?
Charlotte - Raja (winner)
Randomness - ?
Slam - Kim Chi (innocent)
Frogue - Alyssa (rival)
Backslash - Coco (rival)

That only leaves two blanks. I don't know that both those unknowns would be mafia. I don't know if we would have that many. Also we're not accounting for a vig we know exists and (probably) a protective role that due to night one's lack of kills. I don't know that adds all the way up.

Ben for sure is in this game (She's Ricky's favorite queen ever) and is for sure town. Random is clean.

RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
I don't really see how the claim puts a target on you. I mean, it puts less of a target on you, if anything. If your claim is true that means you win with whoever is left. Therefore, mafia would have no reason to kill you. They'll take aim at someone who would actually prevent them from winning

What confuses me about Lore's claim of Raja is that her flavor does nothing to remind me of Raja at all. Unless she was just speaking in Portuguese and with a weird accent just for shits and giggles.
I just assumed that was Lore doing it for no reason since it seemed like the rant was in Portuguese just to have it slip by because it was full of like "WHY ARE YOU TREATING ME LIKE THIS?" Lore has also been posting in colors. I agree that neither strongly points toward Raja, so suspicion on that claim is pretty valid.

@Lore: I can see you claiming to be Raga here.
A quick correction in case someone googles her claim of "Raga" and nothing comes up: she's claiming Raja Gemini.

Can't confirm that Frogue is town, but I'm Coco. Same win condition, no extra abilities. It's also stated that if we're both eliminated in the same phase (ie one nightkill and one shot by vig or something), we both win.
I had you pegged as Coco B) .

I noticed your constant use of Coco. So it was either that or you just really liked Coco.

I have a weird concept of what and what does not constitute NSFW, so that didn't occur to me >_>. I'll edit the post to hide it behind a spoiler, but won't edit anything else.

Courtney said that to Joslyn Fox.

*Not a lesbian. Though the ones from the show that put my *Not a lesbian to the test hardest are Carmen Carerra and Adore Delano

Basically exactly what Boogie said. In fact we've already had a sort of not as well-known/inconsequential character pop up: Mimi Imfurst as the hated. Detox, the other mason, is remembered but not one of the top 3 most memorable of her season.

I actually would have guessed that Kim would have been a power role, but it looks like she's just innocent child.

I would have no solid read for Courtney Act. She wasn't too malicious, but she was a contestant on Australian Idol and got a lot of fame from there prior to the show. When she came on the show there was another queen who was a big fan of hers and she kind of looked down on that person and called her the "low-rent version of me."

Following that she didn't do anything too mean though and she's remembered fondly by the fandom and continues to work with a lot of the queens from the show. She wasn't super nice, but there were far worse people, one in particular in her season alone. I would say she's got about a 60% chance of being town, maybe 30% chance of being a third party and 10% chance of being mafia. She's also super hot

Things from the last day that make me uneasy about Frogue:

RC’s Comment when Frogue laid out his case for Boogie instead of RC

“^ this is how scum hunting works, guys.

No "oh my god you slipped" “


Frogue (after RC’s suspicious behavior the question is asked if anyone believes RC is town. Forgue is the only one who responds yes) : “Yes, I believe RC could well be town”


“Why do you think that RC is town, Frogue?
I don't see much merit to the case for him being scum, is mostly why. Is he a townread? I don't know if I'd go that far, but I find Boogie a lot scummier. None of his play to me seems inconsistent with townplay, and his reaction to Rorick's role reveal seemed like a very natural town reaction. “

After Zarina and I both point out that RC’s flavor does not match his claim and his claim does not check out

“@RC, without quoting from your role PM, is there a rationale for your person having the role that she does?”

RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia Game Thread
Also I made a list a little while ago of people to lynch on sight because I was afraid I'd be killed that night and wanted to leave behind some flavor knowledge. I don't know that any scum would truthfully claim as them.

@Rugga, re: everyone claiming, does character prominence equate to role importance?
It very well could for Zarina and I (or others depending on how much they look up).

If someone says some queen from season 2 that was eliminated second, they're unlikely to have a powerful role. If they say a beloved fan favorite who won Miss Congeniality, it's more likely they have a power role.
