    Mafia Questions

    Hi there! I don't mean to be a noob but I have been trying to figure out what Mafia is? I have been reading through the sticky notes and can't seem to find out more information other than the actual rules/moderators of the game. Is Mafia a game outside of PerC? Is it like health insurance and there are enrollment periods? Can I play?

    Mafia is a game outside of the PerC. (Yes) There are several 200ish sites that have a forum or sub forum that is dedicated to playing some form of mafia or werewolf.

    Generally, there is a town team trying to eliminate the mafia members, and then there is also a mafia team that's trying to reach parity with the remaining alive townies in the game.

    The number of power roles in the game (if any) tend to fluctuate depending on the game's setup.

    Yes, you can play. When sign ups are posted again, you can sign up to play a game.

    Generally, playing in a game does require some time commitment so that you can read other people as well as making posts so that other people can attempt to read "your alignment" as well.

    Yeah, what Owner said. Typically games played on this forum have a 48 hour "day" period and a 24 hour "night".

    There's a handy video here that explains how the game runs.

    Welcome to the jungle @JennyJukes and Ashes.

    I think this thread might eventually have some help for you as well.

    Usually a good starting point is to just start with the fundamentals:

    Typical setup:

    Good guys are usually called Town.
    Bad Guys are usually called Mafia. (colloquially called scum).

    More town than mafia
    Town starts off not knowing who other town are and they don't know who mafia are either. Their goal is to kill all players who are not town.
    Mafia usually starts with knowing their team and have a QT where they meet up and discuss their actions and how to achieve their goals

    There are abilities called roles where certain players (not all) can do different things. For what Roles are, just glance through:
    https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php...oles_Main_Page

    There are certain town roles that only town can have, certain roles only scum can have and certain roles that both can have (but usually not in the same game). There are support and passive roles.

    Every game is unique. There are certain "standard" setups that are popular but since the players are always randomized no two games can every be alike - even if played by the same players lol.

    That's just the basics to get newbies started. Most of the learning happens in-game ... so this is more of an experience based game. The more you play, chances are the better you get (though some of us don't ever grow into good players).

    All games have graveyards, a qt set up where you talk about the game. If you dont feel comfortable playing, just ask sign up for the graveyard or ask the game host.

    This is largely irrelevant to actually playing a game, but it was created in the 1980's by a Russian guy named Dmitry Davidoff while working as a Psychology instructor. As the story goes, it was basically a psychology experiment on deception/lying.

    Thank you all for the information! This sounds like a blast and I added my name to the list of people that want to play in the next game. I had no idea this was such a large game and that so many sites actually did this so I am excited.

    Just remember - if anybody asks you what your alignment is, you HAVE to tell them the truth!
