Yes, it's awesome! I've played and hosted several games on various forums. I would be totally up for trying it out here if anyone else wanted to.

Online it takes about 10-14 days. Every day villagers decide who to kill and every second day mafia decides who to murder. The game continues until:

- there is the same number of mafiozi and innocent villagers.
- all mafia members are killed.

Its a great game. Every member of the game is obliged to make at least one post before every killing. You have to post stuff like who you will vote for, what do you think about this or that villager etc. It gets intense as the game progresses. :wink:

@thephfactor

Thats great news! Im having problems finding an english version of the rules for internet forums. And it would take me a while to translate it from polish. So maybe you could post the rules for online game here?

I haven't played it but doing a quick search I found these rules. Apparently it was a card game.

Newbie Guide: [source]

In its simplest form, Mafia consists of two sides: the Mafia, and the Town. The Mafia's goal is to kill the innocents, while the Town's goal is to kill the Mafia.

At the beginning of the game, the Moderator will secretly send everyone their role. The Mafia will know each other, while (in the basic game) everyone else will only know their own role.

The game has two phases, the first of which is Day. During Day, the Town must choose someone to Lynch; they are trying to eliminate the Mafia, but the Mafia can lead them astray by casting suspicion elsewhere. Generally, players will vote for someone they think is Mafia (the Mafia will vote so that they seem to be doing this as well, and might even vote for each other to confuse the Town); when a player gets a majority of the votes, they are lynched. Their role is revealed by the Moderator, and it becomes Night.

During the Night, the thread is locked and no one can talk publicly. The Mafia, however, can speak to each other privately to plot strategy and decide who to murder before the next Day begins. In this way, they can silence members of the Town who are threats to them. At the end of the Night, the murder is carried out and another Day begins. In effect, the Town gets to kill someone, and then the Mafia gets to kill someone.

The game alternates between Day and Night until either the Mafia are eliminated, or the Mafia have killed everyone else (or nothing can prevent the same).

To see this another way, you may find this Flash introduction to Mafia by mikeburnfire helpful.

An interesting game, count me in too. :D

We just need the rules in english for internet forums. There are some modifications to the gameplay. I'll try to find the rules.

Edit:

http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Newbie_Guide

The newbie guide runaway found is correct, those are the rules. Study up!

About the additional roles, we will play only with the Doctor and Cop.

Some people are just going to be the "town people" and depending on the number of players, few of the players will be mafia member. The trick is the mafia members act like they are "town people" and what town people have to do is get to know which one of them are from mafia.

So lets make a list of people who would like to play such game. I could be the Game Master in the first edition, I dont mind.

1. Borusse
2.

We need at least 12 people for the game to have sense.

Basics modifications are:

There will be no limits to posting, you can post in the thread always so there will no day phase and night phase.

General idea is that people discuss who are they going to vote for, what are their suspicions and so on. Then they take a vote who to "lynch". They send their vote to the Game Master.

Town people vote every day. And mafia decide privately amongst each other who to kill every second day. The game starts with a murder.

So every second day there will be a lynch and also a mafia murder!

And now other important stuff:
When mafia kills somebody, it won't be said whether the person they killed was innocent or guilty. When town people kill somebody, it will. Also, it will be made public who voted for who in the lynch. :wink:

Also, for game to make sense every participant is obliged to post at least one comment before every lynch!. The more the better. :wink:

Does anyone have questions regarding the gameplay? If rules are clear we can start making a list of people who want to participate. :wink: We need at least 12 people.
