Jeod Posted May 18, 2022 Report Share Posted May 18, 2022 Mafia Roulette What is it? A twist on classic mafia, Mafia Roulette uses a deck of cards composed of power roles, with the players as static roles to control them. There is still a typical day and night phase, however there is a smaller draw phase between them where the Host resolves new cards per player and shuffles the deck if needed. The cycle is Day>Night>Draw. The number of cards each player starts with depends on the number of players in the game. Instead of relying mostly on abilities to figure out who the mafia are, town players will also need to rely on player strategy—what actions a player takes and why. A town-aligned player may make more investigative plays, while as mafia-aligned player may focus more on destructive-style plays. Static Roles Each player is assigned a static role. These are usually vanilla roles with no static abilities, but a few static roles do have special abilities that the player keeps permanently. For example, a Traitor is a mafia-aligned static role that doesn’t have contact with their partners. A Card Cop can choose one player per night and view a random card in their hand. Roulette Deck The basic Mafia Roulette Deck consists of 52 cards—a standard game has 8 players who each begin with 5 cards, leaving 12 cards. Each time a player plays a card, it is discarded unless otherwise stated. When there are no cards remaining to draw, the discard pile is shuffled and becomes the draw pile. Host Rules The 52-card deck shall be pasted into a list randomizer (random.org), and cards dealt in ascending or descending order. The host shall track the randomized list as the “current shuffled deck”. When no cards are left for players to draw, the discard pile is shuffled—the host shall again use a list randomizer to shuffle and shall track the list as the new “current shuffled deck”. The host shall track player hands. When players use a card, the host shall track the intended target if any. The host shall choose whether to make card plays public knowledge, or hide that information and simply reveal the discard pile during each day phase. Game start is TBD pending 8 player minimum.
