Ok, the forum race game is coming to an end tomorrow, i hope all the perticipants really enjoyed it as much as i did.
So now i feel like to introduce the mafia game because the rules are too many and the game is broad enough, so its better for you to start studying the rules now so that by the time we start you will all have a clue of what we are doing so i will copy and paste the rules in this thread today.
@flexible, please help me take this thread to the front page and invite every wapforumians to read, please sir @flexible.
First off, these rules are by no means exhaustive, the
moderator(s) (MrCally for this game) may feel the
need to add to them, clarify them or just downright
change them halfway through, if that happens, tough!
Each player has one of the roles listed in the post below this one.
The Moderator(s) will PM each player with details of
their role along with how to use their special abilities
they have any. Be aware, some of these roles are
more valuable than the others and would be prized scalps
for the mafia or the town.
The game is split into 2 types of phase, Night and
Day. There will be several days and nights making up
the game but they alternate. Each day or night phase will last 1 or 2 days but the Moderator(s) will specify
exactly how long each phase is when it starts and
they'll be amended to fit around the festivities of the
season. The title of this thread will be changed to
show which phase we are in and when it ends. The
Moderator(s) will also post in the thread whenever we
The game starts with a Day phase.
During the day, all players make posts in this thread,
discussing their ideas of who is or isn’t mafia, who
should be lynched and who should be protected or investigated etc.. Mafia will be trying to steer the
lynching towards a town member, protect their own
(usually) and generally disrupt the town’s plans
however they can (without making themselves
of course!). The townsfolk will be trying to work out who they can trust and who they can’t, as well as
identifying who has special abilities to be used or
Also during the day, EVERY PLAYER MUST vote for
someone to be lynched. Anyone who doesn’t vote
gets a warning, after two warnings you will be removed
from the game and either wiped out, or replaced by a
substitute (playing the same role).
At the specified end time of the day phase (give or
half an hour), the Moderator(s) will count up the votes and announce who, if anyone, has been lynched
(whoever has the most votes is lynched). The
Moderator(s) will also announce that person’s role.
If two people end up topping the vote with the same
number of votes then no lynch will occur.
The Night phase is for the mafia and those with special abilities and is generally slightly shorter (1-2
days) than the day phase because less people are
involved (but, again, will be extended to fit around the
holidays etc). During the night phase, the Mafioso
discuss privately (see communications section below)
to determine who they want to attack. Mafia can organise themselves however they wish but once
have decided who to kill then one of them must PM
moderator (on wapforum) with the user name.
Also during the night, any player with a special ability can choose to use it, or not. If they want to use it they
send a PM to the game moderator naming who they want
their ability to be used on. This PM can be sent on(wapforum), or by a clear statement on the mafia
forum (in a separate post).
At the end of the night phase, the Moderator(s) announce any deaths that may have occurred but the
Moderator(s) do not give any details of how special
abilities were, or were not, used. The next day phase
Because i will hear no end of posts regarding this, this is the standard order of actions i use for all games
Winning / Losing
The game is won, or lost, when one team is wiped out
or when it becomes impossible for one team to avoid
being wiped out.
Death does not mean you have lost, you are working
as a team and your death can be beneficial to your
team. You win, and lose, as a team. However, once you are dead you take no further part in the game.
cannot make any further posts and any information
you have is lost.
Forms of communication are limited. The role PM received MUST NOT be quoted anywhere,
or be tested/interrogated by questions etc.,
by a warning or even removal from the game.
Communication by PM is NOT allowed in any
circumstances, other than with the game Moderator(s). All other communication MUST be done by the
methods listed below:
The Main game thread is for communication during
day phase only and will be locked during the night
phase. All players can (and should) use this thread for discussing the game. No posts can be edited once
Votes for lynching should be made in this thread and
should take the form: Vote: *Insert Username*
(preferably in bold). You can change your vote, as
long as you do so before the end of the day phase, post a
new ‘vote’ and the previous one will be
Mafia private discussions will take place on an
forum which only they (and the Moderator) will have access to.
IF a Town network exists then players will be invited,
via a night action, to join it and details will then be
provided of the external discussion topic. No private
communication can be undertaken by the town
outside of this network.
Communications between players and the Moderator
(s) can use any of the above channels but night
actions (e.g. Mafia attacks and special ability usage)
MUST be sent to the Moderator(s) either on the Mafia
forum (clearly stated in a separate post), by PM on here.
READ CAREFULLY, IF POSSIBLE OVER AND OVER AGAIN...
