    LLF -> LF (-> F) => point against us ; we know either pres or chance (or both) is a nazi

    I think you can with a good probability assume it's not both - remember that the three cards are not in the open, so Nazis claiming anything that's not FFF is pretty much tactical suicide.

    @Maciejasjmj - Ah, you're right.

    So assuming I got it right this time, to summarize (assuming liberal pres):
    LLF -> LF (-> L) => point for us ; pres and chance considerably more trustworthy
    LLF -> LF (-> F) => point against us ; we know either pres or chance (or both) is a nazi ; prez gains an invetigation which adds to the "constraint problem".
    LLF -> LL => point for us ; almost no information

    Hmm.. I definitely see the wisdom of going LLF->LF early in the game when 0-1 fascist articles are enacted.

    Ah, yeah. But if the liberal policy lands on the table, then you don't need to dig for it in the discard pile anymore.

    Yes, because it counts as a point for us, whereas putting a fascist policy on the table counts as a point for fascism - I really don't see the advantage in discarding certain types of cards - the only advantages are information and the actual type of policy being enacted.

    The fascists are all supposed to know who Hitler is, I don't know what you're talking about.

    Ah right, got confused and thought it's the other way around. So no interest in playing LF at all.

    @djls45 said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    Drawing LLF always means a discarded liberal policy.

    But it can also mean two if @Yamikuronue is scum. So it's a trade-off - sacrifice a winning hand to potentially lose two liberal policies to the discard pile, or take an easy way out and give up on the intel?

    @djls45 said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    With only 6 liberal policies in the deck and 5 slots to win, we'll likely have to have at least one reshuffle to get enough, which would require passing a few fascist policies.

    Mind that we need to keep a buffer for the inevitable FFF hands. And, of course, electing a crooked president or chancellor with a FFL.

    You seem to assume that "you = everyone" again.

    Obviously. I AM THE PEOPLE!

    @CreatedToDislikeThis said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    If an LF turns into an F, we know either the pres or the chance (I'm not going to type chancellor every time) is lying and is thus a fascist but we don't know which. We will then either choose to trust one of them (either correctly or incorrectly) or ignore them both as potential nazis.

    Still a good trade even if you ignore us both - you know exactly one of us is a Nazi, so you enter the next election cycle with a 5-3 advantage as opposed to 6-4. That gives you a better edge.

    @CreatedToDislikeThis said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    The pres can even say "I played LL" and if the chance confirms, then we know we can (most likely) trust the pres and have gained no information on the chance. That's an absolutely advantageous exchange.

    Not sure. In LLF with a Nazi president and a liberal chancellor, the president has no interest in playing LF other than banking on the chance that the chancellor is Hitler. They're better off playing LL - the fascist policy won't be passed anyway since the chancellor will discard it, and admitting to passing LF tells the liberals the chancellor is a liberal.

    @CreatedToDislikeThis said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    From my understanding of the rules, none of the 3 cards return to play - 2 are discarded and 1 goes to the policy board thingie.

    Ah, yeah. But if the liberal policy lands on the table, then you don't need to dig for it in the discard pile anymore.

    @Maciejasjmj said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    Anyway, it requires some math-running - I feel like passing LF whenever possible would be advantageous - either we get a liberal policy passed, or we out one Nazi (which does also improve our chances, since it lowers the odds of us picking scum for the next election) and have a shot at investigating another.

    You seem to assume that "you = everyone" again. If an LF turns into an F, we know either the pres or the chance (I'm not going to type chancellor every time) is lying and is thus a fascist but we don't know which. We will then either choose to trust one of them (either correctly or incorrectly) or ignore them both as potential nazis.
    Now, this is still a pretty good trade-off (as long as we don't choose to trust the fascist, anyway), but I'm not sure how that compares to just playing an LL and being that much closer to a victory.
    The pres can even say "I played LL" and if the chance confirms, then we know we can (most likely) trust the pres and have gained no information on the chance. That's an absolutely advantageous exchange.

    @Maciejasjmj said in Secret Kung Führer - Game Thread:

    On the other, doing that with LLF means we're discarding a liberal policy, and it leaves this much less (OOC: or rather, MUCH FEWER! ) of them in the deck until it gets shuffled.

    A challenge on the level as something as confounding and mysterious as fractions.

    These were students in the nursing program.

    Who didn't understand why they'd need to know fractions, even when presented with the scenario "the doctor says the dosage is 20mg but there are only 40mg pills available, do the Maths on this."

    Oh, near the end of the course they're going to be putting reactions in the number line.
    Yes, she's doing a medical-related program. Coincidence?

    But it's fine, she's been working in the finance sector for a while. This class at least should be a breeze.
