How to teach a brother to play social deduction games?


#21

By playing IRL mafia, like the party game

or Vanilla ToS is admittedly a good place to start, it’s where I started and where I continued from


#22

…Oh

Erm, doii to me then.


#23

I never played IRL mafia but once or twice I think a long time ago? I have a faint memory of it


#24

Also tbh getting Scum in my first game actually turned out to be really helpful cause it gave me a safer medium to learn what to do and what not to do

(Maybe it was because I was paired up with FK and Solic, but still.)


#25

I-I was paired with FK and Marg on my first game…


#26

And how did that go


#27

I slanked to death sorry father I have sinned


#28

YOU DID NOT SLANK, YOU SLANKED! BIG DIFFERENCE!


#29

Alice: I don’t think Blue could fake a greencheck as first time scum
Me: heh heh heh…


#30

Yes I wanted a reason to use this Image


#31

Tho yeah

TOS is the starting point to getting gud


#32

I mean to be fair, it wasn’t fake. The person I checked was town. :wink:


#33

what if

We complied a list of scum tells for people to use in TOL so they get good.

Like you know what some people say when they are evil like

“KING EVIL” or something

I bet it would increase winrates


#34

@Planterror have him join an FM game

But have it be a Newbie FM game on the ToS forums

Pretty good resource for players looking to learn imo


#35

Like

If we actually make a great guide for people to use


#36

my first game i randed vt and did nothing
my second game i randed neighbour/occupier and did nothing
my third game I randed occupier and did nothing

and now, on my 30th game, i now rand wolf and get lynched Day 2 because of some stupid mistake
look how far i’ve come


#37

You remember “never trust a D1 Alch claim”?

Well, substitute Alch for Merc. I was in a game of ToL recently that had 4 Merc claims: One Sorc, one MM, one Sellsword, and one actual Merc, who ended up not winning.


#38

I mean

At least now you do stuff


#39

I remember being court wizard three times in a row


#40

Just roll Non-Killing Neutral in first game. At least it may prevent from getting mislynched. :wink:
