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.

Psychic Mafia

BTSC and group NK. Wincon: Majority.
1. Telekinetic: Says “Player A will try to act on player B. If so, redirect them to player C.”
2. Brainwasher: Says “Player D will try to use ability E. If so, make them use ability F.” Must be an ability in this game design. Cannot act on a baddie.

Baddies are told if they successfully alter their target's action, and are informed at the end of the day phase.
Baddie actions fail if their target does not attempt to act that night or the following day.
If the Brainwasher targets the Shrink and the Shrink acts during the day, the day's vote manip will fail and the Shrink will use the assigned action on his vote manip target on the following night.

Wincon: Eliminate baddies.
1. Empath: Follow spy. Sees baddies acting on their targets even if their prediction is incorrect. Gets screwy results if redirected by the Telekinetic.
2. Faith healer: Save, may act on self.
3. Hypnotist: Block. Neither the hypnotist nor the target are informed if the block is successful.
4. Exorcist: Kill and role spy, both on the same target. Spy only works if target is killed.
5. Shrink: Vote multiplier x0. Can be stopped by a block or baddie mind control on the preceding night.
6. Medium: Is assigned the role of one of the other five goodies so two of that role are in play, and is not told they are the Medium.


NP shows kills and successful saves
Lynch shows faction only
OOP: Block > baddie actions, kills are not blocking
Tie lynch rules: No one dies

Psycat: plasmid

Psychos
1. aura
pi/2. Nana
3. Marquessa
4. Phaze
6. Insaner
7. dee
8. Boquise
9. maurice

All roles are out!
BTSC is set up!
I still haven't come up with a plot. But I googled famous psychics and Linda and Terry Jamison are apparently famous psychic twins so they'll probably be the baddies.
N1 ends in just under 24 hours if people get actions in. If not I'll delay another 24 but will spam for backups.

What happens if action E IS action F, or we (as in we goodies) choose action F to start off with?

I propose we all use action F just to headf*** the baddies.

http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/hm.gif *inspects OP* Hmmm, maybe we should all use it on player C. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/yes.gif

Also there's a nice potential for another 4 way roleclaim with the same players. Let's make it happen for old time's sake!

If the Brainwasher says “Player D will try to use ability E. If so, make them use ability E.” then this game will have successfully turned at least one player's brain into a scrambled egg.

I'm assuming action F is the one that Must Be In This Game. So if the baddie is Thinking what I'm Thinking, we could define Action E as something benign like, say, vanilla*. Then I choose Action E and he swaps it to action F (defined as "the role the [uh...] [my role] chooses" which makes it Action E. I know what you're thinking: Isn't Action E the role that my role chooses, not action F? Yes. That actually makes E=F=E, so no contradiction.

*(Obviously I personally won't be the one to add the loophole to the vanilla cos that would be an abuse of the mechanics. But I trust plasmod to be fair and transparent.)

A counter to the ABC rule is: Act on a player that isn't in this game.
Counter-intuitive, I know. But lend me your ear.

Some may think that if 1+1= a window, then a successful "If A acts on B pls act on C" cannot be foiled by manipulating the C factor.

What you fail to realise is that a fake player B is tantamount to the number 0. Zero multiplied by any integer remains zero. So I can be all "I will act on DR Saab in the library with a candlestick" and they (baddies) can be all "if player A for aura acts on player B aka Saab, then make her act on player C that is dee" but cos 0(saab non roster member) * 1(rostermember dee) = 0... That means C is for Saab.

Now, I am aware that if they choose C = Jay, then it is 0*0=0 so 50/50 chance between Saab and Jay, but at least poor D would be safe. (not a hint)

If role E, which is actually F, is a role that changes mathematical operations, and they swap multiply to divide, it'll hand the game to the baddies, so keep that in mind.

It's really quite logical... in a certain sense. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/dontcare.gif

This is psychic mafia and I am the harbinger of doom which to whom nobody pays any heed.

Why are you intentionally trying to be a distracting confusion by presenting the mechanics of this game as insanely as possible?

I am not even certain that using actions we do not have is physically possible

Aww man crazy theories have already started http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/lmao.gif


I'm an educated man, I read various remarkable books, but I cannot understand the direction I myself want to go, whether to live or to shoot myself, as it were. So, in case, I always carry a revolver about with me. - Epikhodov

And perhaps we are funny. But you must never imagine, that just because something is funny, Monsieur le Marquis, it is not dangerous. - Mr. Croup

I have always felt that violence was the last refuge of the incompetent, and empty threats the last sanctuary of the terminally inept. - Monsieur le Marquis

There is nothing so dangerous for anyone who has something to hide as conversation!... A human being cannot resist the opportunity to reveal himself and express his personality which conversation gives him. Every time he will give himself away. - Agathe Christie
