    CF Mafia Game & Signup Thread

    With the slllooooowww summer days here, I have an idea that we could have some fun with. I've played it on a poker forum before and its quite fun and very addictive. It's called mafia (also called Werewolf). If you are interested in playing, please post and I will add you to the roster. We will start when we get 15-20 players. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. The game will take place in the Gaming forum but to get the signup rolling, this will reside in OT for now.

    Here are the rules:
    The game is called "Mafia" and the set-up is like this. We need a bunch of players (I think it plays best around 15-20 or so, but it can work with numbers as low as 9 or 10). I will assign roles randomly to those who sign-up from the following categories:

    Mafia: These are the "villain" characters and they play against the rest of the group. Their goal is to eliminate all the other players in the game.

    Innocents: These are the other side of the game. Their goal is to identify and eliminate the mafia characters.
    Detective: A special class of innocent, these players can investigate other characters and determine if they are mafia or innocent.
    Doctor: A special class of innocent, these players can protect any one character from being killed in a turn.

    Assuming we get 16 or so interested participants, the breakdown would be something like 4 mafia, 1 detective, 1 doctor, 10 innocents.

    Play proceeds as follows:

    Each participant gets their role assigned via PM. Mafia players are advised who the other mafioso are. Mafia players are permitted to interact with each other via PM, innocents may only interact in public on the posted thread. Mafia players will, of course, also post on the public thread as well.

    There is a Day/Night phase of the game. During the "night" phase of the game, the mafia will send me PMs indicating which inoocent they intend to kill during that round of play. The detective sends me a PM indicating who they intend to investigate and the doctor sends me a PM indicating who they intend to protect that night. The doctor may protect themselves. The mafia's victim will be selected by majority vote. If they are dumb enough not to have a majority in their PMs, then no innocents will be killed on that turn. If they select someone who was protected by the doctor, then the person will not die. Otherwise, the person they finger will show up dead the next "morning." I will send a return PM to the detective indicating if their investigation revealed the subject to be mafia, doctor or innocent.

    Once I post the results of the PMs, the "day" phase of the game begins. During the day phase, the players who are still alive discuss who they think might be a mafioso and vote for someone to kill. The mafioso are posing as innocents during the day and they also vote with the innocents. A plurality of innocents is required to reach a decision. If there are 15 innocents alive, then 8 people must vote for the same person in order to "lynch" them. When the person is lynched, I will reveal if they were innocent or mafia and we will begin the cycle again at the top. To cast an official vote please use the following format: I vote to eliminate (player). Please use bold.

    There are a number of strategy elements, but it is usually more fun if I let the players work that out on their own.

    In slower moving forums, the "day" phase is usually indicated at a specific time each day. In faster moving ones, it ends when a plurality is reached. We'll see how it goes, but we'll probably target one round per day.

    Let's see. Once a player is "dead", he can no longer post anything of substance to the thread. He can post a "How could you have done this to me?" type thread, but he absolutely can not share who he suspects the mafia were or what he knows if he was the detective.

    The game ends when the innocents have lynched all the mafia players or the mafia have killed enough innocents that the innocents can no longer muster enough votes to lynch any mafia players.

    If you think you are interested in playing, post here to indicate that you want to play. You should be willing to commit to being able to read the game thread and post at least once per day, so that the game moves forward at some pace.

    Re: CF Mafia Game & Signup Thread

    I've played this as a card game, but not sure if I'll have time to do it.

    I'll sit out this one and see how much time it appears to take, and perhaps join in on a 2nd game later in the summer.

    I think I understand it, but we'll see as it goes.

    Is there going to be a closed off section like Travian for this?
