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.

QUOTE (maurice @ Dec 26 2016, 09:55 PM)

Each move can be selected during each night phase a set amount of times {x}, depending on number of wrestlers still in play {n} [ x = Roundup(n/4,0)]. If more people choose a move than there are available, nobody gets to use that move.  For example, on N1 there are 12 players.  Each action can be chosen 3 times.  If 4 or more people choose the same action, it will go unused.  If on N2 there are 10 players, each action can be chosen 3 times still (10/4 = 2.5 which rounds up to 3).

Framing this as a question as I think I already know the answer but you can confirm or change your mind

Will it be made known that nobody got to use that move? If so when and how?


If there are any question about mechanics you do not understand please ask as Maurice have been (and still are) hammering this out for a while there may be one or two things that we have overlooked simply because it has already been taken into account.

It's almost impossible to give meaningful feedback without knowing what the wincons are, and secret abilities don't help pre-game evaluation either. If wincons were something like "there are three different groups of four wrestlers, and your wincon is to be the last standing out of your group" then that would be one thing; if it's "block wrestler A, vote manip wrestler B, and successfully pin save wrestler C" then it's quite another.

Do players leave the game and/or get informed if they achieve their wincon?

No BTSCs or nothin' like that (at least not publicly known)?

Vote manip changes the target's entire borda vote to whatever borda you want?

Secret abilities, in a game that Phaze has anything to do with?

Secrets may burn this game completely or make it awesome.

I want in.

Real badasses eat chocolate chip cookies, Imma gonna get that tattooed across my back in Old English font.


... A red bird of my desire came and sat upon my shoulder, and I wrote a note and tied it to its leg and sent it off into the west. It said, "I'll be back," and it was signed by me.
... 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.

Exactly

Edit - honestly, I've sat on this since September, mostly out of the nervousness that comes with that statement.

But it's time

The whole reason I am involved is to bring a little credence to the game being balanced when the players don't hold all the cards. If I was not involved it would be a case of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9qTsDg-RPo

Edit: If you want a second opinion GM is available

I don't think anyone wants a third opinion after you two http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tongue.gif

I think this is plas' standard disclaimer as he is very serious of his mod duties http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/modhello.gif

OTOH I am not a mod hence I feel like experimentation is best served ... hot. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/fight.gif
(Honestly, I thought this sentence was going in a different direction but that's all I could come up with.)

Other clarification questions that come to mind:
What shows in the NP if there's a loop of blocks? (For that matter, what shows in the NP period?)
RIDs are blockable? Saveable?
Getting three simultaneous pin attempts from different players in one night = out, or need three separate nights?

What shows in the NP if there's a loop of blocks? (For that matter, what shows in the NP period?)whichever blocks go through.  I'll spend some time considering  A ° B ° C ° A (° = block) blocks and "kills"  mainly... Maybe 1 or 2 secret abilities 
RIDs are blockable? Saveable? not blockable.  Saveable though   
Getting three simultaneous pin attempts from different players in one night = out, or need three separate nights?I debated this one.  The OP implies only one... I may go in the middle and say at most 2 will count.


if there are any deviations from these answers based on ability I will make it known in the role pm

Or even loop o' 2 with A blocks B while B blocks A TBH.

People get privately PMed if they get pin attempts on them or nah?

Actually maybe I shouldn't ask that here. I should just play and at the beginning of D1 post "Which of you scoundrels went and pin attempted me N1? http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/glare.gif" to make people think they get informed, whether or not they really do. If people don't really get informed, then everyone will be all smug and overconfident thinking that they didn't get pin attempted until they get told "Sry, u ded from 3 successful pin attempts" and they're all http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/huh.gif
