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 was thinking of a way to combine OOA and OOP to make roles more flexible/interesting. I was thinking that the night would have multiple time periods (at least 2) so when a player submitted an action, they would also indicate which time period they wanted to act. Actions within a time period would follow OOP, but the time periods would follow OOA.

Why would anyone want to act later? Well, I was thinking that in this scenario, players' actions could be altered depending on which phase they chose to act. Take a game with 2 phases, early (E) and late (L), maybe you could create roles like these:

Spy: Follow (E), Role (L)
Block: Block (E), Block + Trap (L)
Save: Save (E), Save + Lynch Save (L)
Kill: Kill (E), Kill + Faction Spy (L)

Of course, actions don't have to be similar for a player between phases, but the general idea would be that later actions are more powerful or enhanced.

Totally insane idea, or worth considering? http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/unsure.gif

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.

Totally worth trying.

I'm always into giving players more control over the outcome than luck.

The world is my oyster. It gave me diarrhetic shellfish poisoning.

Totally insane worth considering. It feels like a mini-turn-based game already http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/smile.gif

... 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.
