Just an ordinary game. But I'm confused when I get to the sign-up threads. What are these bizarre 'themes' supposed to mean and what do they have to do with Mafia?

Technically, there are no "ordinary" games outside the beginner games.

The themes are just ways of making the games more interesting. Rather than just having a role and affiliation, you also have a character based off of the theme. Most of the time, the character-role-affiliation combination makes sense.

Sometimes there are additional mechanics in accordance with the theme.
