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.

To kick off our re-established Non-Mafia Games Forum, and as a prelude to my upcoming game of Cornerstones II, I'm running a game of HiveMind. This was first invented by Unreality and run on Mafiosphere and BrainDen.


HiveMind - No lynches, no night actions, no day/night posts, just strategy and subterfuge along with free BTSC for all.

Step 1: Sign-up in this thread. Then, without waiting for sign-ups to fill, PM me with your choice of Team A or B. DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH ANYONE ABOUT THE GAME OR YOUR CHOICE AT THIS STAGE.

Step 2: After we have enough sign-ups (this can be any number, even an odd one, really), I will deem the game to start. An announcement will be posted in this thread and the Board News, notifying everyone of this.
The aim of the game is to PM the host with a complete list of who is on Team A and who is on Team B.

Step 3: You may post in the thread and freely PM any players, cc'ing all PMs to me. The idea is to figure out who is lying and who is being straightforward, possibly picking up hints and using strategy to work out IDs.

Step 4: When you think you have an idea of who is who, you can PM me your guess. I will post your guess in the thread with the result of Correct or Incorrect. If it is correct, your team wins! If the guess is wrong, you will die! and be removed from the game, and your team affiliation will be revealed!
An incorrect result will not specify which IDs were wrong. (That would make it extremely easy, with two factions!)

Step 5: The game continues until someone correctly guesses all team affiliations OR only members of one team are left alive!

Any questions?

N.B - This game does not require back-ups as it should take no more than 2-3 days to play.

What happens if, say, everyone chooses Team A? Will you even it out? Or will everyone be on Team A?

So it's just guessing, and people die when they guess wrong? Sounds interesting. I'm game.

Wouldn't that be more fun to realize that everybody is on the same team, though, and that everybody's guessing wrong (and dying) because they're trying to include at least one of the other team on their list when there are none?

Of course, it all depends on what the players choose.

Interesting.
And perhaps, http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/offtopic.gif maybe we should considering giving Non-Maf Games its own forum rather than being a subforum of General Discussion.

I think it was at one point before we started the third queue, but for one thing there haven't been enough non-mafia games to justify its own forum at this point. Or were those lost on IPB? http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/unsure.gif


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.

It was here. But, like you said, there was a flurry of non-maf games at the beginning and then it just kinda tapered off...

1. This is where GM told me the Non-mafia games forum should go. Our old Category changed into Third Games Forum.
2. Everyone can choose the same team if they want. It makes no difference as you won't know for sure who everyone is as there's a ban on pre-arranging team choices.
3. There may (probably will) be uneven teams. That's perfectly fine and it won't be evened out.
4. Some of you on the sign up list need to PM me Team A or B.
5. We probably have enough people but let's see if anyone else signs up. We'll start within 2-3 days.
6. Let's say: rep points are 2 for the guy who submits the correct list and 1 for all on his team. This is just for this iteration of the game. Points may be scrapped or changed in future games of this or other types.

As an optional rule, when someone submits a list, what if we're told how many are correct?

@benjer - I get your point and usually that would be a good compromise re info release, but the game goes quick enough as it is. Anyhow, once there are less people left, that would narrow it down too far. Even if I only gave that result for the first guess, it would narrow down future results way too much.

This is going by past games I've seen so maybe having more players changes that dynamic but I'd rather err on the side of caution. If needed, we can add that rule next time.
