Game Theory Mafia

Overview


This is a custom themed game, with a major special mechanic, no intentionally game-breaking procedures, and some custom made roles.

This game follows the Bullish Standard Modding Practices. No cults, no hidden flavors, no bastard modding, etc. If you don't have a win con, that means you're town. Mafia knows town PM structure. There may be obscure/hand-crafted roles. Theme: Game Theory. More info: http://www.debate.org...

Game

Game Theory is an interdisciplinary academic field of study. Specifically, it studies strategic decision making, with more complex cases involving more than one rational influence on payoffs. Terms to know about game theoretical decision making include: player, decision, information, payoffs, perfect rationality, and superrationality.

Wikipedia on Game Theory: http://en.wikipedia.org...
Games of Game Theory: http://en.wikipedia.org...
The classic game, Prisoner's dilemma: http://en.wikipedia.org...

Mafia is usually described as a game of the uninformed majority versus the informed minority. The theme of this mafia game will also involve the DIVIDED majority versus the UNITED minority. As such, each member of the town has 2 possible conditions on which to win: eliminate the mafia, OR, surviving until the mafia makes up half of the living.

In addition to the main game, mini decision-games will be presented each phase cycle. These games will mainly revolve around the choice of cooperation or self-preservation by the town, with cooperation yielding rewards for the entire town, and self-interest yielding rewards for the individual and be potentially devastating to everyone else. Example scenario:

Each town member must make a decision. He may choose to use his role, or forfeit his action. If the majority of town members DO NOT use their actions, then all town who do use their action will be BP for that NP. If, however, a majority of town DOES use their action, then those who did not use their roles will be vanillarized.

This scenario is obviously not sound for balance reasons. But it is reflective of the types of games that will be given. All scenarios are prewritten except for theme flavoring. That is, the events of the game have no effect on what the games are. The default position if no response is given is "negative". Discussion may or may not be allowed. The mafia may or may not be involved in certain games.

There is no third party.

Sample PM:

[Title] Game Theory Mafia - player [it literally says "player," not the player's name]

[Username] - Welcome, player. Each night, you will be able to make decisions that impact yourself and the game.

- You are the innocent child; on DP3, you will be mod-confirmed as innocent.

You win with the town; OR, you win if you are still alive when the mafia makes up half of the living players.

[Role description may be absent if it is common, such as cop.]

========

Looking for 13~17 players. Having 13+ players is absolutely necessary for the game to maintain balance. The game will start if it reaches 17 players within one week; if, at one week, 13 or more players sign up, the game will also start; if at any time 13 players are reached within one week after the first week, the game will start. If 13 players are not reached after two weeks, then the game is cancelled and I will put myself on the "on hold" list.

You didn't seem to have been active in the past few mafia games you signed up for. In fact I think you opted to replace out of some of them? Do you think you'll be able to commit to this game?

You can use data from this game whether you sign up or not. I am usually very detailed in the endgame. Please cite me as Bullish.

I opted out of Bsh's game because I was active, and still am, in Zaradi's game. I feel as though this game will probably start either when Zaradi's game ends, or is at a point where it doesn't need my undivided attention.

This will likely start once the "in game" part of zaradi's game is complete. In the mean time more people are welcomed to sign up.

You are aware there are still two games going on, right?

Not this DP of zaradi's game, the entire "in game" part. After that I expect the "in reality part to finish swiftly. Then there will only be bsh1's game.

Ah, I see.
Also, just to make sure you saw, I switched to my old account, so include that underscore.
