That last panel is meme-face gold.

Aww, and no reveal on who Pinkie is until next time? Dang that's good cliffhanging if you don't read the night phases. Nicely timed.

(sure, she says who she is earlier, but this is Pinkie. How reliable is she? Could she be some other role tricking everyone?)

Well, one thing's certain.... She's not Mafia pretending to be cop, AmIRight.

Okay, those of you that thought Pinks was the last mafia trying to fool everyone, raise your hands.
The Froggy Ninja 10th Jun 2017, 8:17 AM edit delete reply
Well it's not like it'll be hard to deduce who the mafia is. We have confirmation on two people being clear so they've got like a fifty percent chance of getting the mafia even if they just went randomly. Anyway it's kinda weird that the nurse didn't protect pinkie. She would definitely have figured out who the mafia is last night phase.
Draxynnic 10th Jun 2017, 8:20 AM edit delete reply
One of the other variant rules in this game was that the Nurse can't protect the same person in two consecutive nights. (This was mentioned in the night phase comments, and I think it's something I can say here without it being a spoiler.)
Platonix 10th Jun 2017, 11:47 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, but do we have any confirmation that they're actually using that rule in this particular session? It's called a variant for a reason, and I'm pretty sure the comments are the only place it's been mentioned.
CocoaNut 10th Jun 2017, 6:45 PM edit delete reply
That's literally the entire point. The person doing this story came into the comments to explain it.

The person who mentioned is DragonTrainer, the author of this intermission arc.

So, yeah, it's confirmed. :)

Not gonna lie, I think I died laughing at Pinkie's expression in the last panel XD

Equestrian Mafia has the strangest hits.
HopeFox 11th Jun 2017, 1:28 AM edit delete reply
I know, right? That one was just brutal and bizarre even beyond the level of the other ones.
Guest 10th Jun 2017, 3:54 PM edit delete reply
So, it's currently Dr. Whooves, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy. According to Pinkie last round, Dr. Whooves is clear. Assuming Pinkie is the Cop, then we have one Civilian, one Mafia, and the Nurse left.
Robin Bobcat 10th Jun 2017, 9:09 PM edit delete reply
Which basically means that Dash and Flutters have to each convince the Doctor to trust them.

Now, ideally the person can just say "Hey, you're the Y, and I'm the X, which I would only know for certain if I wasn't Mafia."... but if the Mafia has been paying attention and knows who's the Nurse and who's the Civilian, that could go bad.

The problem with having a character with "Doctor" as part of his name is whenever people refer to him just by that title I think of the Nurse role in the game.
Rai-bolt 11th Jun 2017, 11:34 AM edit delete reply
Ok, gonna come out and say this. I always found games like Mafia and Werewolf stupid and cruel, and I'm just waiting for something actually interesting to come back on to the feed.

It's just my opinion though, not a fact. I've never been a fan of those random party games, preferring board games and card games like Magic Cards and Star Realms when with others at parties, cause ones like Mafia are all about screwing over others psychologically (Read mental bullying)... They aren't friendly at all.
T 11th Jun 2017, 2:01 PM edit delete reply
Mafia is a game of bluff. Like Poker.
Redwings1340 11th Jun 2017, 2:44 PM edit delete reply
I agree with you in general, but it's a matter of opinion. Some games are better for some people, some are better for others. There's no real right or wrong here, as long as it's fun it is good.

But yeah, I really enjoy a good deckbuilding game like star realms, dominion, or aeons end, and am also generally more of a can of strategy games than psychology party games.

Fan* grr autocorrect
Malroth 12th Jun 2017, 2:26 PM edit delete reply
We usually play dominion but we play mafia/the resistance when the wives want to play because they like social games more than stratagey.
Nixitur 11th Jun 2017, 10:35 PM edit delete reply
So... did Shining Armor just reveal he's Mafia? How else would he know that Pinkie should wait this time?
Darkgloomie 11th Jun 2017, 11:37 PM edit delete reply
Shining Armor was exiled something like two/three rounds ago? Before Rarity.

So yeah he's confirmed Mafia, and has nothing to lose from stopping Pinkie from blurtinf out stuff she shouldn't
HopeFox 12th Jun 2017, 12:27 AM edit delete reply
Strictly speaking, Shining Armor shouldn't be saying anything now that he's been exiled, but a small breach in protocol is forgivable when Pinkie was about to commit a huge one.
Nixitur 13th Jun 2017, 12:29 AM edit delete reply
Oh yeah, completely forgot that, he's been dead forever.
