I'm going to host a very relaxed, very casual beginner mafia game if there are any new or very inexperienced players out there.

If there is enough interest I'll get the thing started up.

I would like to hit about 15 people, if that's even close to reasonable we'll go with all new people, if not, maybe I'll sub in a couple of experienced players and partner them up with new guys.

I am not at all concerned with the outcome of the game. I'll try to keep it reasonably balanced but more than anything I want this to be an easy trial run so new people can get a feel for the game.

I will post a list at the beginning of the game that gives a General Outline of what roles are in the game.

For example:
Godfather
Mafia
Mafia
Mayor
Town Random
Town Power
Town Investigative
Doctor
Citizen
Citizen
Town Killing
Survivor
Neutral Random
Jester
Random

This isn't the list i'm using but I'll have something like that that will at least give the players a place to start.

For now, let's see if we have enough interest to fill 15 Slots. Experienced players are welcome to help (constructively) but I would like to keep the sign-ups to largely inexperienced players or anyone that feels like the don't understand the game.

May Drafterman have mercy on your soul.
Rules of Mafia

1. Mestari is never third party.
2. If Mestari claims an intricate and page long TP role, he's telling the truth.
3. Mestari always jointly wins with the town.
3b. If he doesn't he's mafia.
3c. If he was mafia you wouldn't suspect him in the first place.
4. If you lynch Mestari you will lose because he will be the third party Doctor or some other townie power role.
5. DP1 lynches are good.
6. The answer is always no.

thanks brother. I'll deal with him, I'd love for him to help:)

I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder here but i've had one or two pals asking about this and I had a guy come into one of Drafter's games and ask how mafia is played. I pm'd him a ton of info and told him to read every bit of it . He read it in like an hour and basically said he'd go find somewhere else to play it.

I don't think this site needs to lose any more traffic. I suggested a Beginner game in the mod list thread and TUF seconded. I'll keep it light.

EVERYONE that wants to sign up for this game MUST read this:

http://www.debate.org...

Also: Glance over some other games and look up ALL of the terms or abbreviations you don't know.

DP
NP
WIFOM
SK
VIG
Maf
Town
Claim
Counter Claim
Role Claim
character Claim
FOS
Scum

There are a ton more. Here is a list but it's not really a great one, it has a lot of extras and things here on DDO may not be the same.

A fine idea. Considering the mod list for beginner games is empty, I don't see why you can't run a game. The usual procedure is to write your name on the modlist and put numbers next to the games like beginner's 13 etc. Drafterman takes care of the beginner's game so I suggest PMing him just to make sure you don't step on any toes. But if he is cool, no reason not to start.

Also, in the previous beginner's series of games, they were carefully moderated to see that only certain elements of the game are introduced to the new players at a time. Again, working it out with drafterman should solve the problem.

I'll get with him tomorrow, he's modding the game most of us are playing in right now so shouldn't be hard to get a response from him. :)

I fully intend to read the other DDO beginner games and yes i'm going to take it one step at a time. Honestly though this stuff isn't that hard. I'm always surprised if people don't pick it up quickly :)

Heard on that. I'll take more Boodamice any day, makes it much easier for me to sit on the edge of the game and push a button when my reads match yours :)

Just keep in mind that my analysis looks legitimate as town and scum ;)

Never trust anyone: rule #1

But honestly, a big stuffed moose? Gotta love and trust that. So its rather conflicting ;)

My button doesn't discriminate. It doesn't matter if you're scum or not. I make my own reads every game I just don't post them all. I would if Nobody else was doing it but I much prefer to sit on the outside and give the thumbs up when you hit a point I was going to make or agree with.
