Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.

Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.

I'm hoping Toy Soldiers counts as a game for this category.

If so, I'd like to nominate maurice for setting up fake communication channels between Boquise and sparrowhawk. I have just read through the game and it's probably the best play I've seen in any game ever. It's certainly the funniest, and great that it actually worked.

For anyone who hasn't read the game (see here), on Phase 2, maurice sent a message to SH saying he was Boq and providing an encryption key. He also sent the same message to Boq with the same key. I theorise that Boq and SH used the compromised key to communicate.

Reluctantly second.


A good programmer is someone who always looks both ways before crossing a one-way street.

Two novels can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other involves orcs.

Ninjaed by SH.
Thirding in that case. It is classical man-in-the-middle that I never saw pulled out in a Mafia game. Indeed Boq and SH did use that key to communicate. Moreover, maurice provided in that communication false intel that pit Boq and SH against each other by faking something Boq claimed about his targets (if I recall correctly). That particular move (false intel + eavesdropping) practically destroyed any chance to get a counter alliance forming early on and provided a very nice smoke screen for the actual alliance (nana, aura, maurice). Oh wait, I should also be reluctantly thirding seeing as we lost because of that.

He has already been nominated here, but I would like to nominate maurice for his play in Overwatch Mafia. He decided to go rogue as a town vig in that game, killing 2 mafia members in 3 shots while staying completely under the radar, which had devastating effect on me as the last mafia survivor, completely disrupting my plans and making me concede.

Seconding that nomination.
Though he wasn't rogue, he had instinct and he got some info from a goodie spy. That last part seems it was under the baddies' radar even after the game ended http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tongue.gif

Actually, after reading Insaner's nominaron, I was reminded of araver's more in that same game, that he just referenced.

He told me he didn't approve, making it clear to me who he was and allowing me to hide under his ID a bit. It also gave us the ability to build a circle of trust.

There was a discussion about it and it came down to "play" sounding like a one-time tactical action where "move" gave the impression of long-term strategic decision.

Basically.
