Hello new members of this site.

So you've probably noticed "mafia" being thrown around the site but don't understand any of it and have avoided playing games for fear of looking stupid and losing.

Here's a basic explanation.

Mafia is a forum game.

It is started by a moderator, or a user who decides to start a game.

The moderator then conducts "signups" where people put there name onto a list. Then once all people have signed up, the moderator randomly assigns 1/3 (roughly) of the players onto the mafia team, and then the other 2/3 are signed onto the townie team. None of the teams are announced but are done individually through Private Messages or PMs.

There are two phases in mafia: The day phase and the night phase.

The townies do not know what team any other player is on. However the mafia know who is on their team and can communicate with them in one group private message set up by the moderator. The mafia can communicate in this PM throughout the entire game. Usually the mafia get to "kill" a player during the "night phase"

Basically the mafia decide as a whole who they want to remove from the game. Once they decide the "night phase" is over and the day phase begins. During the night phase no one may post in the forum.

During the day phase everyone can post in the forum. All players decide to "lynch" or kill one play during the day phase. This decided democratically via votes.

A majority of votes are needed to lynch a player. Once the player has been lynched he is removed from the game and the night phase begins.

Whoever survives at the end is the winner.

Some quick things to know:

1. The night phase is not done actually at "night" in real life. It just is a name for a part of the game where the mafia decide on who to remove from the game.

2. The day phase is not necessarily done during the "day" in real life. It is just a name for a part of he game where the mafia decide on who to remove from the game.

3. The mafia are unknown to the townies

4. Other townies are unknown to the townies.

5. The mafia know who the mafia are.

6. The mafia via process of eliminationo know who the townes are.

7. When the mafia decide to remove someone during the night phase it is known as a "night kill"

8. When all the players decide during the day phase to vote someone out of the game it is known as a "lynch"

9. Games last as long or as quickly as it takes for players to make decisions on their votes.

10. Votes can be changed until a majority is met.

11. Sometimes other powers are thrown in to mix things up however this is generally the theme.

I will be conduction an amateur mafia game in which only new players can play in. I will explain every part of the game. Essentially this is a training for new members who wish to try out mafia.

This is for any beginner who has not graduated in the previous set of beginner games. And 1 or 2 players who graduated but who only played 2 games last time.

kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

VOTE TO LYNCH SNIPE!!!

Yeah, I read a lot of the debates done here and some of the forums too. Now that it looks like I might start actively participating on the site I should work on some debating.

That's 1 vote out of the 0 required. That's a lynch.

You actually recruit? Guess I was non-recruit who started playing. By the way, if you need extra players for games 2 or 3, I'll be quite happy to play. Still, let the new players have their turn first.
