    So there's a potential 80% × 77% × 75% chance (roughly 46%) that even two liberals would pass a fascist policy and no chance that a fascist chancellor can't pass a fascist policy.

    Seems about right given that we're one liberal policy away from winning.

    I don't know about the mathematical probabilities, but where is everyone?

    Careful, that kind of talk will get you sent to the east front.

    In English it's ‘Eastern Front’. Is there a possibility that my scan result was wrong?

    So you feel very strongly about grammar, eh? Like some sort of grammar authoritarian? The noose tightens.

    ANYWAY

    The nefarious President Yako is faced with a dilemma: resign himself to defeat and simply pass on two liberal policies, or chuck one and pass a fascist policy with them in the hopes that Chancellor Omega will have a change of heart.

    Yeah no.

    She passes the sixth liberal policy, thereby earning a
    Liberal Victory

    The fascists were Takhisis (no surprise there), Yakostovian, and KaiserElectric. Reus was Hitler, and presumably will be promptly deported to Austria to toil in the schnitzel mines for all eternity.

    Yes, Omega, this means you were absolutely wrong about lulz.

    I have a confession to make to all of you. I'm no liberal.

    I AM A PROUD MEMBER OF THE KOMMUNITSISCHE PARTEI DEUTSCHLANDS



    TIME TO AVENGE ROSA AND LIEBKNECHT. TIME TO MAKE EUROPE RED AGAIN.

    ....

    if only there was any actual mechanics for that though :(

    ---

    Funposting aside, that was a pretty.... interesting round of Secret Hitler. I'll give fascists credit where its due, I didn't suspect any of the people who ended up being fascist, except for ironically enough Mr. Hitler himself (And I guess lec too when he voted no on turn one, but I figured that could have been explained by silliket not knowing what was going on). On the other hand, I also felt that was less because of masterful deciet, and just more because imo, I don't know if the fascists knew what the hell they were doing. It was pretty easy for the communists liberals to run the show and direct meta play and get the five liberal policies passed to win the game.

    It was a fun game, really enjoyed my time in this. Good job again Tak and Yako for completely flying under my radar. :)

    For saving Deustchland, I believe I should be the female leader added to Germany for Civ 6

    So, my early grammar posts started as my enthusiasm for sharing what I had been relearning in German, but as it went on, I realized I was being a bit of a Grammar Nazi, so I let off a little.

    In choosing my Chancellor, I had the choice of Omega, an obvious liberal to all players, or a previously untested KaiserElectric. I made a judgement call that selecting Kaiser would be met by a resounding Nein and/or out us both as fascists. I was also assuming that I would not get both* of the remaining liberal cards, and would be able to pass along two fascist policies to Omega, which would have either secured my status as a visible fascist (likely) or drawn Omega into doubt (unlikely) and possibly given the fascists a chance to elect Reus (very unlikely.)

    *assuming that the deck composition was somewhat close to the numbers provided.

    I had fun, and I'm glad at least the most obvious liberal never suspected me.

    woo..

    2/3 of my fascist suspects were correct.

    I was such an obvious liberal.

    I don't recall you listing me or Kaiser Electric as fascists, so who were your suspects? Tak, Reus, and who?
    Honestly, I thought you might have been a fascist if not for PIS.
