So, I think my biggest problem when it comes to this game is that most times I have no idea what I should do to generate content. What are some traditional strategies people use when they're unsure of where or how to proceed? I know some people will use votes just to get information out of people, but I honestly don't really know who I should pressure at this point...or if I should be pressuring anyone at all.
Day 1 is the hardest day to come up with anything for, but if you don't know who to target you should still vote since it helps the town if everyone has a vote record. When we look back at the votes in later days we'll see from the votes that the Mafia will tend to shy away from voting for other Mafia, or if they do, they usually try and escape their commitment when it comes to a close vote.
So a game where everyone votes is a more pro-town game, and also just a more interesting game for everyone to play.
