What is Mafia? And how do you play it?
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:
Nerd 1: "Why can't you trust atoms?"
Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

Yeah....ignroe bhu's links. This is the simplest explanation that the site has been able to put together on what the game is.

If you need more information, feel free to talk to bsh1. He usually runs the beginner's serieses of games, and would be more than willing and capable of helping you.

I read the link and it sounds like a really cool game. I have a few questions.
1. Are there any major changes since three years ago or other important information?
2. Can you withhold from voting? Does everyone have to vote?
3. How long does a Night/Day phase last?
4. How long does a complete game last in an approximate range?
5. How does the mafia communicate? Do they have their own private thread or just through PM?
6. Can a group win as well as a third party?
7. Can the mason play conservative and not recruit anyone?

Thanks I would appreciate it.

1. Are there any major changes since three years ago or other important information?

To the structure of the game? No. To how people play the game? Sure but that's not really what's discussed.

2. Can you withhold from voting? Does everyone have to vote?

Sure you can not vote. There's no reason you have to place your vote. I'd argue that you should but technically you don't have to.
3. How long does a Night/Day phase last?

Depends on the moderator and how quickly people send in their night actions but anywhere from 12 hours to 3 days.
4. How long does a complete game last in an approximate range?

This REALLY depends on the size of the game and how quickly the different day and night phases go. The average is roughly a week or two.
5. How does the mafia communicate? Do they have their own private thread or just through PM?

They have a private PM where they can discuss things with the other mafia members.
6. Can a group win as well as a third party?

Depends on the mod but yes.
7. Can the mason play conservative and not recruit anyone?

I mean....sure but that would be really bad utilization of their role.

Thanks I would appreciate it.
