Mafia

Post by *Manimal » Sun Feb 17, 2008 2:54 am

Introduction: (taken from Wikipedia because Im too lazy)


Mafia (also known as Werewolf) is a party game modeling a battle between an informed minority and an uninformed majority. During a basic game, players are secretly given roles: either "mafia", who know each other; or "innocents", who know only the number of mafia amongst them. During the night phase of the game, the Mafia choose an innocent to kill. During the day phase, all players debate the identities of the Mafia and vote to kill someone whom the majority suspect. Players are eliminated until only innocents or mafia remain; the surviving side wins.



PUB EDITION: (not from Wikipedia) :P

Roles:
Roles are assigned through PM, in a confident and verifiable manner. The roles are either:

Mafia - will be told who other mafia(s) is(are) -coincide through PM on a single person to attempt to kill during each nighttime phase of the game(Will PM me person to kill). Aim to kill innocents during nighttime phase or vote off innocents during Daytime phase.

Innocent - Aim to vote off Mafia members during the daytime phase of the game.

Doctor - Aim to vote off Mafia members during the daytime phase of the game. Has the ability to save one person from being killed each night (Will PM me person to save).

Sheriff - Aim to vote off Mafia members during the daytime phase of the game. Has the ability to investigate one person during each nighttime phase of the game, and will recieve a response from me saying the person is either a mafia member, or not a mafia member(Will PM me person and recieve PM response from me).



Daytime phase:
The Narrator tells everyone to wake up and announces the Mafia's victim. Usually this involves the Narrator telling a story about the murder scene that the remaining players wake up to, and/or a story of how the victim was killed. For example, "The police chief said, 'Bob was shot seven times, stabbed three times, and drowned in the river. This is the worst case of suicide I've ever seen.'" This player is "dead" and may no longer participate in the game in any way.

The Narrator will reveal the identity of dead players.

During the daytime phase, the players deliberate over which suspected Mafia member they wish to nominate for execution. THIS WILL BE DONE ON THE FORUM THREAD. The Innocents want to execute a Mafia member but all players are allowed to vote. Generally, The Narrator will administer the election, the nominee may be given a chance to defend themselves and a majority is required for the execution to be carried out, although voting variants abound. If a majority vote is not reached after a day or so, a vote will be taken in which the person with the most votes, majority or not, is killed. The same rules apply to players who are executed as to players killed by the Mafia. Each player must vote, can only vote once and cannot vote for themselves.


Win condition:
The game ends either when the last Mafia member is killed (Innocent victory) or the Mafia members equal or outnumber the Innocents during the day (Mafia victory). The innocents have no way of voting off mafia members at this point, but the mafia can still kill each night.




SIGN UP TO PLAY MAFIA BY POSTING IF YOU'RE IN ON THIS THREAD-game will start as soon as 7 people sign up, and people can sign up while games are being played, as games do not last that long. Daily participation is needed for the game, so don't sign up if you won't be able to.

Thanks, I had thought this was once played at some point in time, however I couldn't find it on the basic "search" through the forums.

First game of Mafia is off: there are two Mafia members teamed up against a doctor, a sheriff, and 3 innocents.

Anything goes to defend yourself and not die during the daytime phase-announcing your role, lying about your role, etc, so don't believe what everyone says, because the mafia could be lying to you! :P

Well I think it's pretty obvious that the 2 mafia guys are Preach and Drift, given the way Preach runs his church and all...

I say we lynch Preach and see if Drifter cringes in fear!!!

I think I'm gonna side with the Semi-holies here: I'm pretty sure Preacherma'am wouldn't hurt a fly (c'mon, he plays unranked games!! He's got no guts!!). And I just can't vote against Drift.

On the other hand, MWHM was REAL quick with that accusation...

You have to be quick when your town is being overthrown by these thugs!!! It's just not safe to walk my pet rock down the street anymore.

I think the real question is who are you trying to protect? Hmm?

I know the feeling. Every time I take my fish out to play, they just throw a fit, then flop around throwing a tantrum like a 5 year old not getting his way.

As evident from the link above - I tried to get this going before and got lukewarm response. I'm in though as a player or a game moderator.

Hey Mani - How about splitting this into 2 threads - one for rules and one for play...


And since we have more people, do want to restart this first round?


And maybe some concrete times for voting - you don't vote within 48 hours for example, you don't get a vote that round...


AND - tell me to shaddup anytime now...



:D

Yeah.. I didn't expect such a quick participation after seeing the "lukewarm" responses to the other ones. Since the mafia still hadn't responded anyway, I'm just gunna restart the game with more people:[/i]

You goons got 24 hours from when roles are sent out to respond in with your nighttime phase parts (if you have one), and another 24 hours from when I post what happened overnight to post your vote on who to kill for the daytime phase.

Hopefully that will keep things moving daily...

ALSO: I am making one person "Godfather". This person is simply the Mafia member that will be responsible for PMing me who the Mafia would like to kill overnight. If you cannot get a collaborative effort from the other Mafia, then the godfather picks.

So I assume that the roles have now been shuffled, and we restart ignoring MWHM's previous comments? Because I stand by the statement that Preacherma'am couldn't hurt a fly...
