Re: Mafiaballs [Newbie]: Chapter XXXIII: Revenge of the Skro

Also, I apologise for this game lurking so much - I think we were unlucky in that half the players decided to not really take much part in the game. <nyssa> I hope that you will stick around and try another game, they are usually much faster, interesting and fun than this one.
