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 three 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, Mafia Basics and Role Madness!
Round 2: Flavors, Misinformation, Information Denial, and Third Parties
Round 3: Themed Game

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 three games. That way, each person gets the full effect of the beginners' course and also helps keeps things moving.

New Players:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Ringers (experienced players):
7.
8.

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

Town Advisor: (Optional; May comment in Day Phase thread to give advice; has no special knowledge of the game)
1.

Mafia Advisor: (Optional; Participates in mafia PM to give advice; has no special knowledge of the game)
1.

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 above is stolen straight from Drafterman and I will be plagiarizing most of his speeches, as they are good.
The only thing I will add is that this "boot camp" will last about 3 weeks or so. Please be active and only sign up if you can make the commitment.
My work here is, finally, done.

I'd like to think that after 5 proper games I don't fit into the 'beginner' category any more. But if I do, I'll happily take the slot.

We'll give it a few days, and I'll throw you in if need be (I don't want this to drag on too long).
I am looking for beginners who don't really know how the game is played, and ringers how could work on their game. You don't really fit either, but I know you'll be active and a good player to teach, so...
