Halo’s incredible knack for uncovering the good guy roles and forcing them to reveal. To be fair, his anti-finder power has not been evident in the later games.
When Ben participates in a game, it has a 75% chance of self imploding before the end is reached. Perhaps it's his icy cold touch that spooks us so.
When a person claims to have a role, then another comes out and claims the same role, calling the first a liar. Fun times.
A variant of the game where there are no FM. There has been one evil mod game played here (modded by Goatlord and Kastor) and the biggest victims were JaimeLannister and Gertrude (who no longer harbor any ill feelings, promise )
When a counter-claim is made against a finder, one of them is a false finder. We like to vote out the true finder and follow the false finder. It's just what we do.
The first finder to come out is ALWAYS the true finder. True, we usually vote them out right away, but it's a fact all the same. (see 'Halotower' for the one exception)
This one is tricky. It usually is shorthand for the mafia. The original game chose to name the mafia as Faceless Men (FM) in the Westeros setting and it has stuck, no matter if the current killers are alchemists, red priests, Brothers, or Targ supporters. It also refers to Faceless Man, the player. You have to watch for it in context to be certain of the meaning, for instance, ‘Well, it’s just FM – he always looks guilty.’ That refers to the player.
An emotional feeling as to someone’s guilt or innocence made famous by Gertrude in which she almost single handedly lost the game for the good guys. The game was refered to in some circles as ‘Gertrude’s Gut’
Halo Bender claimed to be a finder when he was, in fact, a roleless innocent. This move threw the whole game into a tailspin and chaos ruled the day (see also: pulling a Halo)
Another name for Faceless Man (the player) When FM was calling himself Not A Faceless Man, he usually ended up being a FM.
I thought she needed special mention as the player who has never missed a game. The most loyal of mafia players.
a preferred tactic of the FM to lie low and be agreeable in the hope that people forget about them. Red Sun made this move famous.
Whiskeyjack’s plan of voting off a person a day, innocent or not, to narrow down the pool of suspects, and perhaps nail a FM or two along the way. There’s lots of numbers and probabilities built in, but I won’t bore you with that here.
Whiskeyjack’s modified plan to have the finder claimant’s reveal their partners, and then we kill them all. Hmm, it seemed to make sense at the time.
Pulling a Halo:
Making a seemingly random, chaotic move to get the game moving. Some people say it with love, while others curse and pull their hair out at the thought of it.
