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'll nominate Elemental Chaos Revisited. The basic setup is traditional, but I think the movement, boosts and passive indy are probably weird enough to shift it to the non-traditional category. If people feel it is traditional, I'll nominate it over there.

I think it had the potential for some very interesting play and counterplay that maybe was underutilized in the actual game. It was a redo of Sinistral's original, but I still think it was a good game on its own merits.


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.

Gonna go ahead and nominate a little gem that was probably overlooked (pun intended): yuiop's Overwatch Mafia. 8 vs 2 vs 2 with two opposite "baddie" factions and a lot of redirects to screw up with the goodies mounting any kind of public synergy. Not to mention a ton of character quotes from the video game that both helped and screwed up. All in all, I liked how it felt playing it and I'm using my nom to honor that.

P.S. I am actually waiting for someone to nominate WWF so I can second it. While the design was screwing with my mind and it took me a while to shake the feeling, it deserves the votes in this category.



... 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.

I'll second Overwatch.

I was close to finishing The Wire 2 with 2 baddie factions but this game made me rethink everything.

Also I like the subtle communication araver and I had.

Hmm, I still can't use my seconding here http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/sigh.gif Common people: WWF Battle Royale Mafia, ToySoldiers 3 (Battle of Cedarglen Park), even KaTSWiLM 3 scroll-based approach may fall in this category.

Just realized Elemental Chaos hadn't been seconded yet while I was putting the list of noms together. I'll second it, the mechanics with roster position switching and having actions directed to roster spots made it much more chaotic than usual at first but made for strategic opportunities once things started to be figured out.

Also noting that there's been an unusual dearth of non-goodie/baddie games in 2017. I was going to try to make the next Dungeons & Mafia be goodie/baddie, but now I think I'll stick with a multi-faction system.

I nominate KaTSWiLM 3 partly for enabling me to interrogate people, but mostly for the game design. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/yes.gif
