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.

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead

A light to burn all the empires
So bright, the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

This is mainly just a test of something I am working on but also I think with araver winning one I think I now have the most nominations without a Brando.

I've added the nominations on wiki on player pages, but didn't do any list.

Since 2017 Brandos will be coming up, and last time when we called for noms i wuz all wth at the "most enthusiastic", "most active", and "best post" categories, what do peeps think about Brando categories?

Do we need "Best goodie play", "best baddie play", "best indy play"? (Specific plays in specific games)
"Most aggressive player", "The 1st annual Insaner award for most unpredictable player whether goodie or baddie"?
"Best use of WIFOM"?
Other stuff? Any categories need to be mothballed?

I want best post to become best postER. It is hard to find/remember good posts and iirc the last two years it has only had 1 or 2 noms. Best poster would make it easier to nom people.
And with best poster one can nom someone they think post the most amusing stuff, the most well-written posts, sharp stuff, etc. etc.

I am not really sure what "Most enthusiastic" is supposed to be lol

Regarding new categories, like those you have suggested, I think that could be nice. Best goodie play, best baddie play, best indy play, perhaps also best [for non-standard mafia games such as Toy Soldiers] play.
Best use of WIFOM feels too small tho, idk. Wouldn't that be a part of the best plays? Also, would these three new best play awards replace the Best Play Brando?


Most aggressive player, yeash that can be fun.
However, I dunno if we can warrant many Brandos when our player base is tiny. Maybe if we don't find any nom the Brando could be N/A?



Perhaps Best Newbie can be complimented with "Best entrance game" or something?

I'm open to this. Nana7 Nana7_Admin what do you think? We should decide this...well we should have done this a couple weeks ago http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/blush.gif

I'm definitely good to have Best Post to become Best Poster.

Most Enthusiastic is supposed to be for promoting the site and into Mafia. The award could be combined with Most Active in a way if we want

As far as Best Plays go, it might be hard to get enough to cover three different awards. We struggle to get enough nominations for that as it is.

We can confirm this hopefully soon.

Good points. I didn't really understand that that's what most active is talking about, but makes sense when I hear it. Maybe I should say in brader terms, I was thinking more along the lines of having people think back over the year and be like "oh yeah, that time when Framm trolled everyone in Mafia Noir, that was just classic." with various forms of classicity and less along the lines of a hall of fame for players over the year. Except best new player which ofc should stay. Hall of fame is a different topic for a different time tho.

TBH there haven't been many comments, so I'm interpreting that as meaning it's pretty good as it is RN.

I had planned on opening Brandos for noms on the 1st. I think most Active is for being active here in playing, hosting, and sb, and will keep that as is. Best traditional and non-traditional might need to be rolled back into one award. The last year has not been busy enough I think to expand awards out.

Best Poster is worth considering. Though that is pretty close to Best Player, and Best Post is about just one post. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/hmm.gif
