Well, not that there's too much mafia but more the fact that there isn't enough of other things. I want to get some non-mafia games here, otherwise why not just rename the games forum as the mafia forum? Here's some ideas, all of which I would be willing to moderate if there is a sufficient amount of interest.

Poker!

Everyone is given a set number of 'tokens' at the beginning. The dealer/mod does not get to play and gives hole cards to the players secretly via PM and reveals face-up cards publicly in a thread. Players take turns checking/calling/folding/raising etc. One at a time. Mod will keep track of whose turn it is, how many tokens are in the pot, how many each player has... pretty much everything.

The Resistance

Very similar game to mafia, this game is an uninformed majority vs informed minority type of game. The majority are 'rebels' while the minority are 'spies'. Players vote on who to send on missions. If a spy is in the mission group they can choose to sabatoge it or let it be sucessful. If a certain number of sucessful missions take place the rebels win, while a sufficent number of sabatoged missions result in a spy win. One of the big differences between this and mafia is that players are never killed. Minor changes from the popular version would need to be made to play the game in a forum setting. More info here:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org...(game)

Any Game Theory Game

I've tried to generate intrest in specific game theory games in the past, to little avail. I think that in a setting like DDO a well planned game theory game could have potential for generating some interesting plays and styles.

Good Suggestions From Audience

Pretty self-explanitory I should think. Any ideas on games we can play besides mafia?
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

In a capitalist system, the demands spur the creation of supply. You're going to have to be an entrepreneur and market the games you want to sell to us yourself. You can't just expect everything to always be run by the DDOeli~

The entire point of poker is that you're looking at the faces of others though, so I don't think I'd enjoy a game which removes that component sorry.

Interesting. I'd be up for playing Resistance and maybe poker although the latter I am not the best at.

If I get several people interested in any particular game I'll start a thread on that game looking for players.

Vaarka swung his sword at the mod. However, since I am now incorporeal, he ends up accidentally striking the entire American landmass (It's a REALLY bastard sword), destroying both continents. Spiders are now at 50% of capacity.

With three people expressing intrest in The Resistance, I am going to be looking into starting up a sign-up thread. Tell your friends everyone.

There can be, if there are enough people that want it.

Here's to hoping I can avoid ruining it overly much with the slight changes I am planning for the forum version ;)
