Hello new members, and welcome to DDO. 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 silly and losing, but joining in these beginner games will prepare you to compete against the regulars. The following will give you a basic look at how mafia is played.

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 player during the day phase. This is decided democratically via votes. Mafia members are included in the day phase votes. Their job is to blend in and fool the townies into thinking that they are townies, as well. Don't trust anyone, until you can be sure they aren't mafia.

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 the game where the entire group decides 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 elimination, know who the townies 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.

We will be conducting a series of three beginner games, with each game becoming a little more difficult, and adding a new element of the game. The first game will be very basic, just to introduce you to the game. The moderator will explain every part of the game, and you will have a private message set up with the mod, so that you can ask all the questions you want, in private. Once you get into the regular games, the mod may, or may not, be able to answer your question, so the three training games is the time to ask. The only stupid questions are the ones that you don't ask. Essentially this is training for new members who wish to try out mafia.

If you'd like to give it a shot, just reply to this post and add your username beside a number. Games will begin when we have enough players signed up. Good luck and have fun!!

Are you running this all as a 20 person game? I don't know how well that would go with no roles, but if you are, then we'll see shortly.

I doubt there will 20 players but I'd like to get as many new players as possible. We prolly won't be starting for a little while.

Don't do it JM! This game is too addicting. I had some stuff I was supposed to do today, but instead I wasted it defending myself from Lickdafoot and Medic's onslaught. You will lose previous hours playing this game.

If this game is going to distract me & prevent me from going to my piano lessons twice a week, then yay! ^_^

It wasn't a waste, apparently you've saved yourself, until next round at least. :)

Looks like we have enough new players to go ahead and run a group but we'll take more if we can get them. We'll probably get started on Thursday.

There is a PM for announcements and a private PM between you and Medic, where you learn what your role is and can give Medic your night actions between each day phase.

I have no choice, man. If people accuse me I have to defend myself, regardless of the post count.

Wait, how do you know we're townies?

Looks like you've been busted :)
