By which I mean the Mafia party game, of course.   ;D  The Mafia Game (or its equally popular variant, Werewolves of Miller's Hollow) have long been a big part of the non-adult games here on Elliquiy, and they can be a great way to meet people.  I'm planning a round of the game just for the newer members of E, as a way to help you mingle and make friends.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Mafia was developed at Moscow State University in 1986, by a psychology student who wanted to study the effects of having an informed minority working against an uninformed majority.  In other words, the Mafia (or werewolves, or rebels trying to overthrow a king, etc.) know who their allies are, but they must work in secrecy, since they are greatly outnumbered by the innocents, who are unaware of who they can trust.  Each night, the Mafia choose one other player to eliminate from play; each day, everyone votes to "lynch" or otherwise remove someone from the game.  Special roles -- such as a guardian who can shield one player from the Mafia each night, or a seer who can spy out the roles of others -- shake up the game and keep everyone on their toes.  (You can look through the Vault or peek into Mafia Madness for examples of how the games work.)

Lies and deception are the order of the day, but remember, it's nothing personal.  :)  This is a light roleplaying game, and I'll be keeping the groups small (about 10 people) so rounds can move along fairly quickly.  Roles are assigned randomly, and themes will vary from game to game.  Plotting happens both in the public game thread and via private message, and it’s hard to be sure who to believe!  But the games are always entertaining, and never predictable.

To begin with, we'll use the ever-popular werewolf setting.  If you were approved within the last three months or so, and you fancy trying to stop the onslaught of the were-beasts (or maybe being one!), just post your interest here, or send me a private message.  The first game will start once I have 10-12 players, but if it’s popular enough, there will be more games later on if you miss this one.  :)

The game will begin once we have ten players, and we just need two more for that.  Don't miss out on the lycanthropy!

Oh my, do add me before someone else gets the last spot. Unless that's already happened. Well, whichever. I'm The Unholy Potato, and I'd be interested in playing Mafia/Werewolf/whatever.

Okay, I believe we now have enough to begin!  Though I will go up to twelve players if there's that much interest, so one or two more can still sneak in.  There's still a little prep work to do.  :)

Last chance!  The plotting and scheming will begin soon, but I can still take one or two more players if anyone else is interested.  :)

The bad news?  We've lost a few players.  But the good news is that we need new players!  If you missed out on the start before, I'll be rebooting the game soon, and now's your chance to join in.  Reply here or send me a PM if you're interested.  :)

Watari
Lucius Cornelius
Albedo
DTW
Lord Mayerling
The Unholy Potato

I have a few other possibles I'm waiting to hear from, but I have space for ten players at least.  As Imogen says, these games must be addictive, since all the same people keep coming back for more.   :D

There is still room!  If you know the Mafia party game at all, this is basically the same setup online.  There are examples in the Vault and Mafia Madness of how the games work online, and Wikipedia has a pretty good overview of it as well.

Basically, we'll have two or three werewolves (depending on how many players there are total) who are trying to eliminate the villagers; and the villagers will be trying to eliminate the wolves, with the help of the guardian who can protect one person a night, and the seer who can learn one person's role each night.  It's mainly a strategy sort of game, trying to work out who's who based on votes, with a little roleplaying thrown in for fun.  :)
