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.

About Me: My mafia statistics do not take into account that I often play as a backup for inactive players who through neglect have sub-optimally used that role. This means that when I pick up a role it is already more likely to lose.

Manfred's Apprentice

My Content

QUOTE (Phaze @ Jan 30 2013, 08:39 AM)
After being awoken (rather rudely according to his account*) the livid wizard paced past a familiar well where an earlier altercation took place. Sleeping against the well was a familiar figure Manfred was sure he has previously turned into a frog.  As it was his first foray into the business of lampooning the tardy Manfred was certain that history was repeating itself. Kicking the inert figure awake Manfred inquired "Déjà vu?".  Prince Marth swallowed hard remembering the last time he bailed on "The Customer is always Wrong" Mafia and GM had to take over from him. "Please, don’t turn CROAK! CROAK!" exclaimed PM as smoke came from the well and engulfed the both.  After spluttering and cursing the clearing smoke, Manfred addressed the Frog Prince. "It's going to be harder to get a dame to kiss you this time, with that wart on your snout" he falsely claimed**.  Manfred then wandered off muttering "Déjà vu" and complaining under his breath about his lot in life.

* NOTE: I desperately need to buy some more coffee for Manfred before the withdrawal symptoms become permanent.
** I am not sure if it is because there is no wart on his snout or if Manfred thinks that girls prefer warty nosed frogs, either way he seems partial to the odd mistruth.

Auras plugged in http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tinfoil.gif and we have finally setup all the "ECT machine" to be triggered remotely.

Simply add a post to this forum to zap Aura whenever she relapses

Now that the championship preliminary game has ended this can be given a good discussion without influencing an ongoing game. There are a number of tools on Mafia Universe that we may be able to implement here. I have a a very brief discussion with Thingyman about getting the code. It appears even if they would be willing to share it would do no good as this site runs differently. That however does not mean that we cannot develop some of our own tools to help improve game-play and hosting however.

Some of the tools they have on Mafia Universe
* Automated host to count votes, print off a list of votes, to print out outcomes at the end of the day night and to freeze/unfreeze the thread
* The ability to display a list of who voted when and what order during the day
* the ability to use a dropdown box to vote.
* the ability to see conversations for a selected people (usually just a single person) in isolation.

Due to differences in game play between sites duplicating these tools (in their entirety) will not help. An example of this is that we normally start on a night phase and allow discussion at night so there is no need to freeze the thread. Also our voting format tends to be different , days tend to be shorter and requirement to be active not so strictly formalized (i.e we don't send out warnings if there has been less than 10 posts in a day phase)

That said I would like to open a discussion about what tools would be best for us. Consider what issues you have as a host, what would tools could help you be better at recording you suspicions or scum-hunting http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/inspect.gif .

To themselves the Idolized Goodie would appear to be goodie and will win with the goodies at the end of the game if all mafia and themselves have been eliminated from the game.

They however count in the baddies win-con and if they are the sole survivor at the end of the game the mafia wins.

Thus the win-con for the baddies is for them (including the Idolized Goodie) to have majority

The win-con for the goodies is to eliminate all mafia and the object of their affection

Up to you if
* Mafia is aware of who the Idolized Goodie is.
* Spy results show Idolized Goodie as being in the baddies faction, or specifically mention that they are an "Idolised Goodie"

This role would be useful in games that need more weight on the baddies side for balancing but you don't want to over-weigh it by adding another baddie.

This is an idea which you may wish to use to prevent a complete whitewash depending on who dies or gets lynched N1/D1. It may also bring more strategy to a game as it may be worth sacrificing a player for the greater good of your faction.

By having an action assigned to a role upon lynched (or alternatively being killed at night) the following are possible:

If a major mafia role is lynched it could be possible then to have an upon death action of revealing to the mafia the roles that have already been killed. This would then provide the remaining mafiosos with enough cover to keep the game challenging.

It can improve roles that are perceived to have little value such as "booster", "rid spy", "potentially insane faction spy", "protects village sided killer whist alive" or even "vanilla villager". One way of doing this would be if they player yells out the name for a specific role or someone working for an opposing faction upon death or can write a note to a given role upon death (as a role could already be dead, it could get interesting).

Hopefully this topic will inspire you to create novel roles that are interesting to play, it may be worth using this concept sparingly however unless you are very good at balancing.
