- 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 7 Townies.
- 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Cop, 6 Townies.
- 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Doctor, 6 Townies.
mith originally called it C9+2 w/a Slice of Pie (in reference to Pie E7), but Mr. Flay labeled it F11, based on the hexadecimal expansion of C9, representing the four possibilities of power role distribution.
