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 know it's not going to pass but TBH I like giving players more options for what to do, as long as there are countermeasures (like in this case clobbering anyone who goes and posts messages you can't read).

araver Does that only apply to blatantly encrypted messages so it's still fine to do stuff like send instructions for smiley codes or first letters of each sentence codes or instructions to convert a short string you want to send to a decimal number and find a way to nonchalantly post smth like "You'd better cooperate with this plan I'm proposing or you get 4381907568033206189376524800748930562470018935026408495106987204416053207890184506235

Can anyone tell me what is this whole encryption thing?


I have a bad feeling that whenever a lesbian looks at me, they think that's why I am not a heterosexual.

There exists in the mechanics of this game a way to send other players limited private messages. In previous games, players have used this opportunity to send a cipher system and key so that further communication in the main thread can occur. It occurs publicly, but the messages are encrypted so nobody else knows what is being said.

It has some pros and cons both in-game and out-of-game. In game pros are that the players can continue communication. The con is that other players can see them communicating, even if they don't know what they're saying.

Out-of-game cons is that it gets really difficult to "translate" these messages back to normal text for folks who might want to read the game thread sometime after the game is concluded.

The out-of-game con is the reason I voted against encryption. I like the concept of encryption in a game, as a general rule.

Sorry for the delay. Extra shifts / death march.

Blatant. As defined by host. Ask beforehand if not sure. But the list contains any protocol of communication (with or without external sites/tools) that appears as random or obfuscated text to other players. If you manage to avoid being detected by other players, gg and and have fun.

Also, host does not and cannot censor couriers. Courier actions can be done by PM directly to player couriered, while CCing the host (I know it is hard on mobile but not impossible http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tongue.gif). One ping forward, one reply back.

But host does reserve the right to modkill if rules are severely broken after game begins http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tongue.gif the place to discuss rules is beforehand (or ghost thread).

... I saw my earlier selves as different people, acquaintances I had outgrown. I wondered how I could ever have been some of them.
... *shrug* Good-bye and hello, as always.

Thank you Yuli for that explanation. It fits perfectly.

Re out-of-game, there have been translations post-game (for Amber I I think) even though they require a lot of post-work.

I guess...you could compare Bob's awards page to Barc's Wiki page Awards section as verification.

Or we could just pretend Barc never existed. But then I'd ask you who we're pretending didn't exist, because I already forgot.

onetruth: It is Monday. Welcome to the roster.
