Mystery Mafia: Holidays 2019

Recommended Posts

Mystery Mafia: Holidays 2019

 

Who's down for a quick round of mafia over the 2019 holidays? This game uses a mechanics twist I've had on the drawing board for quite some time. There will only be Town and Mafia, no other factions. There will be mostly standard or vanilla roles; you can expect to rely more heavily on posts and player behavior than action results.

So, what's this twist? What every player can know is that there is no scum doc at the beginning of D1. This is a game where mafia will start in a weaker state than town (at least on paper) but get stronger over time if they play their cards right. There are more details to what's going on, but those are either for the mafia team only or won't be revealed until game start. The idea behind this is to put pressure on town to be active while also limiting actions and emphasizing scum hunting through content.

Ideally, we'd get at least 10 players for this game, though I can rebalance for 8 players minimum. I will need to get the game started by 01/02, but starting before then would be ideal. All I'll need for a sign-up is a post in here and then a PM with your preferred email for doc invitations.

 

Player Signups (8):

  • OrangeP47
  • Jeod
  • Retaliation
  • Shade939
  • Killing_You
  • Mojoman
  • NodFan
  • ChopBam

Related, but I'm actually undefeated at Defcon.

It's been forever since I've played that, very fun game though.

But yeah I can play, assuming being a bit busy on the obvious days isn't a problem.

If we end up starting before New Year's Eve and you all want to take that day off from mafia I'd have no issues with that.

I don't know if I'll be able to play. D:

The game starts shortly before work starts again, and I'm having trouble finding enough time to do any non-work related things during the normal working week.

The game starts right before I leave for holiday, so I might not be around to actively participate. I will have to decline for now.

Mystery, eh?

I like mysteries. Put me in.

I'm guessing it's a murder mystery. Possibly a reenactment of And Then There Were None.

It's more my inability/laziness to think of a one word generic descriptor for a mafia game with a major, mystery mechanics twist.

I'm not a railroading GM this time :v

Is it that the GM's not out to get everyone this game? ;)

The greatest enemy of any faction in mafia is Town. Especially Town.

Sorry to hear, December can be a brutal month for that sort of thing.

We're getting pretty close to 01/02 and we're just below the minimum number of players. Anybody have anyone else they can contact/poke/invite?

Tentative start for the game is 01/02 at 6:00 PM EST. I've rebalanced the game for 8 players and will have no problems scaling it if more players join before game start.

I do have old emails from my past mafia game for some of you. If you haven't sent me your email and have updated your email since, please send me a PM by 4:00 PM EST tomorrow.
