Polygamist is an Open setup which is mainly characterized by a group of four lovers, who happen to be scum. The original idea was created by Adel.

Setup

Mechanics

  • Day Start
  • Nightless
  • Every group gets only-pregame discussion, nobody gets daytalk or night-talk.

Standard Role PMs

Polygamist

You are a member of the mafia, and a lover with XXX, YYY, and ZZZ. If one of you is lynched, all of you will die. The four of you may talk prior to the beginning of Day 1.

You win if two townspeople are lynched before any of you are

Lovers

You are a member of the town, and a lover with XXX, whom you also know to be a member of the town. If (s)he dies, you will as well. The two of you may talk prior to the beginning of Day 1.

You win if a mafia member is lynched

Notes

  • The Goon Lovers are all lovers together, so if any one dies they all die.
  • The Townie lovers are tied together in pairs. Each pair dies together.

At the end of Open 88 it was proposed that this setup inherently favors Town. By randomly lynching, the Town has a 60% chance of winning (as it is exactly equivalent to 2:4 Lovers Nightless). However, truly random lynches will not occur in practice because scum cannot and will not lynch themselves; further, it was noted that scum voting each other up to L-1 would make them consistently look great under vote analysis. It was also discussed that massclaim should occur either early Day 2 or very late Day 1 to keep scum Lover claims as implausible as possible. See also White Flag Gambit.

A smaller version of this setup with an theoretical 50% win rate per faction is True Love.
