Mafia University
Want to know what this strange, oddly compelling game mafia is? Know what mafia is but wish to bone up on your skills? Mafia University is the place for you!

You will be put through a boot-camp of four mafia games. Each game is designed to teach you the basics of mafia in a progressive fashion, leading up to the themed games that predominate DDO Mafia. The curriculum is as follows:

Round 1: Introduction to Mafia and Mafia Basics
Round 2: Role Madness!
Round 3: Flavors, Misinformation, and Information Denial
Round 4: Third-parties and Themed Games

The games are designed for maximum exposure, not balance. The idea is to have new players deal with all of the different circumstances that may commonly run up against in normal mafia games.

The sign-up sheet below is for all four games. That way, each person gets the full effect of the beginners' course and also helps keeps things moving.

Note: Some members have expressed concern that 4 consecutive games is a bit much. Either too long to hold people's attention or too overwhelming or too much of a commitment for new players. Unfortunately, I can't see how I can distill the game down anymore, so instead I have reduced the game size. Quicker games to keep people interested.

New Players:
1. [Reserved for Maikuru]
2. [Reserved for ChubbyFatz]
3.
4.

The Ringer (experienced player):
5.

Replacements (open to all players, preference given to noobs):
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Mafia Advisor: (Optional; Participates in mafia PM to give advice, has no special knowledge of the game)

What constitutes a "New" player versus an "Experienced" player? My personal, arbitrary, discretion. My primary goal is to get a game up and running, otherwise no one benefits. However, slots will be given to newer/lesser experienced/lesser ability players as a matter of preference. If you are not such a player (or I don't believe you are such a player), then feel free to sign up, but also be prepared to have your slot taken away and given to someone who will benefit from it more. Other than that, the game is open to all.

Advice: If you are not already my friend, when signing up, add me as a friend. This will make things go faster.

The "New Players" refers to people who want to learn the game right?

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

2 Day Phases.

But, I'm thinking of adding TSH and trekie to make it 7. 5 players is a bit constricting, mod-wise.

I think ideally you'd want 8-9 players so that you can have 2 players on mafia and afford the town some mislynches. It's important to learn about associative tells as well, I think that's what's really missing at the moment.
