Inactive swerve

Apr 1, 2014 by Kilgo
Fitting for this to happen on April Fools' Day, but in playing Fasting today I managed to make a mid-game move into an alliance of three (after flipping from my original group, which my gut told me I couldn't trust -- rightfully so, as it turned out) and then pare it down to just us and the inactives, and this was in a game with more actives than most in which I've played. We eliminate the remaining actives, but then one of our three went inactive so we voted him out.

It got to the final 5 and, what do you know, one of the inactives came back. He had POV so he made it to final 4, then the final POV went to the other inactive. No problem, right? Unfortunately at that moment my partner went to get some tea (!) and the vote split 2/1/1 with my partner and I paired against one another. Even though he had two votes and I had one, the recently returned inactive didn't vote and the CPU gave me the heave-ho.

I had started working on writing tributes at that point since there was no logical reason to expect that insane turn of events, so I suppose that's a lesson learned that you're never in the Final 3 until the game says so. Ugh.
