MINI: Newbie Mafia

Postby Pepsiblue » Tue Nov 25, 2008 8:21 am UTC

The idea behind this game is to get more new players that read this forum but don't get in very many games to have a place to play.

Rules of the game are simple and I'll let the Vox quote explain the basics:

vox wrote:Hello everyone!
Mafia, also known as Werewolf (to infidels, we shall not speak of them), is a game originating in real life, but adapted for a forum setting. Basically, you have a small village of innocent people, but hidden among them is a group of nasty mafiosos, whose sole goal is to have at least 50% of the population belong to their organization so that they can control the lynch-votes. Since they cannot recruit people, the only way to achieve this is bloody murder, but not more than one per night. The rest of the town uses their deductive abilities, along with some special roles, to find these infiltrators and lynch them.

Lynch Voting:
xkcd Village is a lawless place, and the only form of justice is the old-fashioned lynch mob. Every "day" (this will be explained shortly), the town chooses a member to hang with a simple majority vote. For the more peaceful towns , "no lynch" is also a valid vote. After the mob has strung up the citizen, his house will be investigated overnight (it would seem reasonable to do that before the hanging, no?) and it will be announced if the town hanged a member of the mafia or an innocent townie. There are no "takebacks", once a majority vote has been reached, even for one minute, the "day" is over and the night begins.

You must bold your vote and place it on a separate line for it to my fault if I miss it and therefore do not count it in the official tally.
Example: I think Vox Imperatoris is dirty mafia scum because he said he was the cop, then later said he was the doctor. NB: That would be really stupid, don't do something like that.

Vote: Vox Imperatoris

I changed my mind now, it's definitely RandomGuy.

Unvote: Vox Imperatoris
Vote: RandomGuy


The possible set ups for this game, from which I will choose randomly:
1. Mafia, Mafia, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie, Jester
2. Mafia, Mafia, Cop, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie
3. Mafia, Mafia, Doctor, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie
4. Mafia, Mafia, Doctor, Cop, Townie, Townie, Townie, Townie

Refer to Gojoe's newbie mafia guide for an explanation of roles: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=29022

You can only sign up for this game if you are in three games tops, I will only allow two IC (Those that are very experienced) players to sign up for this.

Days will last 72 hours maximum (I might extend the deadline by 72 hours if the debate is heated), nights will last 72 hours maximum, I will broadcast the end of nights via PM.

I can not sign up, but I want to say that this is a GREAT idea for new people looking for a way in.

Good luck everyone!

Do I sign up here or in the queue thread?

Actually I'm not sure whether or not I should sign up - on average how long does a game usually take to play out? how much commitment per day is required?

All you need to do is say you want to join here, in this thread. Just have to read the thread, and make a few posts a day. The last mini game last 2 days.

Done. For question about length and commitment, I expect at least one post at minimum every 3 days as that's when days will (likely) be ending. I have never run a mafia game so I don't really know what to expect in order of length here :D

Also, for future reference sign-ups should be stated as:

1. Ashbash
2. Jebobek
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

Copy the list, take the next # and put your name on it, then post (typically).

The three game limit is three games at the same time, not three games ever.

If too few newbies join, I could be one of the IC players. I don't want to keep any new players out of a spot, though, so put them in my place if it fills up.

I wouldn't go so far as to say turkey sucks, but chicken's better, let's just admit it now. Or maybe it's just easier to cook without drying it the hell out?

Ha! :D I wouldn't blame yourself. I suspect it's a curse. My father's name is one more commonly used for girls (which makes it easy to spot telemarketers); my mother pronounces her name with two syllables when it usually has three; and to this day I have relatives who are vague on how to spell "Meredith". (Which I tend to pronounce with two syllables. I don't know why.) So I don't know if I could've chosen an easily intelligible username if I tried.

I stumbled on this name while looking for variations on "Mere", so just use that if you like. I'm happy answering to any variation on my name (just ask the relatives who keep accidentally calling me Mallory). :D

You can't have fish and chips with salad!

So, what's the deal with day 1 voting? Never been a fan of the random vote, personally, but we don't have much information. Anyone got some sweet tactics? Roleclaiming ain't much fun either. Flip I hate day 1.

Not to mention roleclaiming would be totally useless in this game right now. I illustrate:

"Hey, what's your role?"

Vanilla townies: "Town"
Mafia: "Town" (prob. vanilla: claiming cop/doc could be of benefit, but it's a risk)
Hypothetical Cop: "Town" (only 50/50 chance there's a doc too; wouldn't want to risk getting killed night 1)
Hypothetical Doc: "Town" (Has no defense against nightkills whatsoever)
Hypothetical Jester: "Uh... town" (tempted to claim mafia, but knows that would out them pretty conclusively)

So, no point in trying that yet. Unless you want to just for the hell of it. It is day 1, after all, and day one seriously sucks. -_-

And Gojoe? That's one of the brilliant things about the past tense: you can use it to talk about things that already happened, even if it was the day BEFORE yesterday. ZOMG! :D Ain't language cool? :mrgreen: I also hope you all had a nice Fourth of July, whether or not it was a national holiday in the nation in which you reside!

Anyway, I second the request for sweet tactics...

Hmm, I'd have to go with peas rather than salad. Who here eats chips with tartare sauce once they've finished the fish?

The first day is indeed the hardest one, we just have to wait until someone is willing to make a fool of themselves to spark discussion.
