FORWARD

Again, this series will be experimental in that it will have 4 games instead of three. It will have the usual three, plus this game. Nymph/FT suggested this idea, and I am using this series as a trial run. Please read all directions carefully.

INTRODUCTION TO MAFIA

Mafia is a game of strategy and behavioral analysis that pits an uninformed majority (The Town) against an informed minority (The Mafia). All members of the Mafia know who they are and - by process of elimination - know who the members of the Town are. The mafia have their own shared PM where they can coordinate and discuss strategies. No member of the Town is given information about any other player; they must figure that out through the course of the game.

The game is divided into Day Phases (DP) and Night Phases (NP). Each DP will be conducted in a public thread created by me (such as this one).

I will start each DP with a summary of actions performed the previous NP, a list of living and dead players, and other rules and notes. The DP is used by all players for open deliberation and is the only normal mechanism by which members of the Town can communicate with each other. It is the primary vehicle by which the members of the Town can eliminate their opposition: The Mafia. However, the Mafia are covertly part of this deliberation. It is the mafia"s objective during DP proceedings to avoid being detected by the Town and, hopefully, to encourage the town to lynch a Townperson instead of a Mafioso. A "lynch" eliminates a player from the game. To lynch a player, an ongoing vote is tallied--if, at any point, a majority of players vote to lynch someone, that person is lynched and the DP ends.

During the DP, each player may cast a vote to lynch another player. The format is VTL Player Name. Unbolded votes do not count. To remove your vote from a player, simply Unvote. Alternatively, you may vote that no player be lynched that day with a vote to no-lynch, or VTNL. Again, if a majority of the living players vote to have another player lynched, or vote that no one should be lynched, the DP will end with the death of that player (if applicable) and the NP will begin.

The NP is where players can utilize the abilities of any role they have been given. These will be detailed in PMs I create for each player. In addition, the members of the Mafia can elect to kill another player during the Night in addition to their normal role use. The NP ends when all players have submitted their actions or time has elapsed.

The object of the game for each faction (Town, Mafia) is to eliminate the other faction. As a short-cut, when the Mafia make up 50% or more of the living players, the game will end automatically, since they will be able to control the vote during the DP and can no longer be eliminated (under most circumstances). However, there is no such short-cut for the Town, and they must eliminate each member of the Mafia.

This link is also a great resource: http://www.debate.org... I also extend my thank to Khaos_Mage and Drafterman for their work developing and establishing this series. I hope you enjoy the game and the series!

GAME ONE

In this Game, however, there will only be two roles: Vanilla and Goon. Neither of these roles have any power. Mafia still can select on person to kill each night, but they will have no special powers. This game is designed to teach you the basic and fundamental mechanics of mafia.

You will have to rely on your ability to read other players and cooperate with your teammates to succeed in this game. Good luck!

False. You did receive a role before the DP was posted. I just confirmed.

Everyone, this shows that timing is key. Timing can make or break a game.

Lol! No roles? How does that teach us how to play mafia if we have nothing to claim?
To all the people fighting a hard battle out there - life's giving you a pretty hard beating. There's no sugarcoating that, but there's no shadow that's free of light. When life sneers at you and asks, "Ready to go again?" - Raise your hand. Reach out to victory. Don't give in.

Nice sig and there's no reason as if she does post I probably won't be on to unvote because I'm going to be off to bed here pretty soon.
