    • The Mafia Game

      Hello folks!

      The time has come for our board to have its own version of "The Mafia Game". If you are a RPG lover, a professional spammer or just willing to socialize, join us on this thrilling adventure. 8o Just reply below with your board nickname and your daily availability time frames. :D

      What is "The Mafia Game"?

      "The Mafia Game" is basically a rpg about a poor, miserable town affected by evil: a ruthless criminal organisation whose only purpose is that of killing every last good citizen around. To face the threat, the townies need to stick together and move smartly to identify the criminals and execute them.

      Do I need any previous knowledge to play the game?

      No. You're only asked a small amount of time a day to play and make the game flow.

      How does the game evolve?

      There are two ever-repeating turns: night and day.
      Night: the mafia members try to kill one innocent person and hinder the investigation; the townies play their special roles (more information will follow), trying to protect themselves or indentify the enemies.
      Day: when a new day dawns, all of the townies gather in the main square and hold a public meeting about the past events. When the discussion ends, one or more suspects are put on trial and their fellow citizens are asked to express their final judgement. Suspects who are found guilty are executed.

      How do I actually play this game?

      "The Mafia Game" is a role-playing game, which means partecipants are supposed to play their characters through narrative. You are not required any specific writing skills and allowed to write either in 1st or 3rd person. A good way of playing the game is that of imagining yourself in the specific time and place.

      When does the game end?

      There are usually two ending scenarios:

      1. The townies identify and kill all the mafia members;
      2. The alive mafia members are equal to the townies and there's no town killing role left.
      3. (The Serial Killer has eliminated everyone else - this role only appears if there's a succifient number of players)
      How much does each turn last?

      The night turn usually ends when everyone has played their role. The day turn usually lasts for a fixed amount of hours depending on the players' availability.

      Who guides the game?

      The moderator will tell you what to do and when to do it. For such reason, you are not required to have any knowledge about the game. You will guided throughout the match.

      What are the game communicative channels?

      Any content connected with the game must be posted in the specific section and thread. During the night, users will play their roles through private conversations which will always be mediated by the moderator.


      As any other game, "The Mafia Game" has its own set of rules which will be published once and for all as soon as I know how many of you are really interested in playing.
      Such rules are in addition to our board rules, which always apply.

      The only purpose of this game, as well as of any other game, is that of having fun and socialise. Although discussions may heat up, please do not take it personal and stay civil.


      As said before, more information will follow once I know how many people would really take part if we started a game.

      Cheers :thumbsup:

    • This forum's had the mafia game before. If you do a search of the Social Corner archives you should be able to find some old game threads and people to contact. I'd also recommend making a post on .us's mafia section to let people from there know.

      I will be interested if you get people as I'll have some time over the winter break.


      I don't play any servers anymore, I'm just here for the spam and

      I didn't know about previous versions - thanks for letting me know :)
      Also, I can't really contact the old players, so I hope they'll join the game by themselves if they're still interested.

      I appreciate your interest and I have written you down on the players list, which means we are now.. 2! I really hope someone will join or we'll just have to let the project go :P
