    It probably wouldn't work for long, since people would figure out what's happening pretty soon after a couple chairs get sold off.

    Pretty inconsequential detail overall but it would've been interesting to see someone try it.

    Huge flaws in a game are not inconsequential details.

    Didn't really affect my enjoyment of the game, would've been an interesting route to go but these things happen.

    Different set of priorities I suppose.

    The issue is what difference would it make if they figure out what is going on. Gaya would be following people on the clock which puts the actual players in a position where they can't get to their chairs. Perhaps the most likely scenario is that people would have lost the game without being ever able to get to their chairs.

    I don't think it'd work out quite like that, as long as people remember where their chairs are the Gaya can't really do much to stop them from going and sitting in them once the round ends; anti-violence rule would prevent that. It'd probably have the most impact early in the round, with the Gaya trying to tail people vs everyone else trying to throw them off.

    As for why they never tried... One other thing to consider is that a lot of the Gaya were being manipulated by one group or another from pretty early on, under the promise that it would work out for them eventually. None of them have been shown to be particularly proactive thinkers either so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch that they thought they could just coast by while someone else did all the serious work.

    All they had to do was follow them to the chair then steal it once the round is over and the active player returns to vote.

    Basically, Kaitani did a shitty job writing them. Also, you are talking about players that are possibly hundreds of millions of yen in debt sitting around for almost 2 days with nothing to do and none of them think to steal chairs because they are lazy and have someone else to do the thinking for them. Sounds reasonable.

    Fair point, that would complicate things. What it would probably come down to is one of the players sacrificing their vote to watch their chairs or if any teams have extras available, using them instead.

    Wouldn't be impossible if they thought they could get the same thing for less effort, by following someone who knows how to play better than they do. It's pretty consistent with how most of the extras have been shown to act in general.

    Basically, all these extras are part of the setting or props rather than actual characters and that is just bad writing.

    Re: Ponder in the Liar Game Lobby

    That sounds very similar to what I thought they were doing. It is good, however, to have at least something resembling official word on it so we don't have to worry that every 1 week break will turn into another massive hiatus. And if the frequent weeks off help the quality of the chapters/story, that is just another plus.

    Re: Ponder in the Liar Game Lobby

    Yes, I knew someone here predicted that, I posted in the thread.^^ Well, I agree this is wayyyy better than uncertainty, meaning a longer hiatus and no official word.looking forward to what Kaitani has planned with this, and for how long will he keep it up. I just hope he is doing this as not to take a hiatus after this arc for the next round.
