RE: Mafia General Chat
if you want to waste the next 3 days of your life watching dota community figures playing mafia badly live on camera then thetown.gg is probably right for you

the stream is at twitch.tv/beyondthesummit

ppl making noob logic errors already... ?

i mean we all make noob logic errors some times. Then again i have never played rl mafia where some logic might be slightly different IE hearing people move in the night.

There's also the much more rushed nature of it and the increased tendency to try and read people based on things like tone of voice or "shifty eyes" or other tells of the like.

RE: Mafia General Chat
They are given 30 minutes per day phase which is actually super long for IRL mafia. The fact that people are all in a room together and can't walk away makes people think through things faster, too. Tone of voice and tone of writing are basically the same thing, too. Lurkers are more noticeable though

RE: Mafia General Chat
So in my quest I started long ago to get some people to hop over (didn't work) I did it the other way around and brought my setup, elsewhere. That being said I'm closing it here since it will never fill I've concluded.

And anyone still interested, you still get a priority join in! (We'll just be playing elsewhere)

RE: Mafia General Chat
Hello everybody!

I am running a game of "Secret Hitler" over on fantasystrike and need a replacement.

Secret Hitler is a new social deduction game by the same team who made Cards Against Humanity. It has more in common with Resistance than mafia. Main selling point in a forum context is that it has less time commitment than normal mafia. You can read more about it in the Sign-up thread, or see how the game is the current going in the Game thread.

Edit: I found somebody for the above position, if anybody wants to be an additional replacement that would be great.

If anyone is interested in some cross-community/joining in for some Mafia games/etc. you should definitely hit me up since we're looking for some people over at The Syndicate for some setups.

Also join insomniac Mafia so we can be doing something here. ONW is also fun as always

I'm surprised nobody has run a mafia theme mafia yet.

Once I have a bit more free time I might try running a small, very plain setup (think Princess mafia) because honestly the more games we have running the better. Do we think the numbers there were fine or should they be increased/decreased a bit?

RE: Mafia General Chat
I personally think three scum is kind of a "magic number" for strategy diversity (e.g. it makes bussing more a matter of degrees than a super-swingy thing that wins if it succeeds and loses if it fails), but that's just me.

Seconding that I think 3 scum minimum is best for small games, 2 scum also has the problem that a D1 scum-lynch turns the second into a serial killer.

RE: Mafia General Chat
I'm disappointed I don't have time to run or play mafia anymore. I wanted to do something with some more Fancy Writing since I wasn't wholly happy with how City Slickers was run, but trying to force it when I don't have time will only make matters worse.

(And, of course, small games aren't as conducive to storytelling so unless a surge of activity comes I'd probably host one elsewhere if I did, but that's all hypothetical.)

and now, hunger does what sorrow could never do

Ideally, 11 people with three scum sounds pretty good. If you can get that.
Really, three scum is great, but you have to have more than eight people for it. Two scum is fine though in my opinion.

Ooh, I'd sign up for Dersehunt 5. Was x1372 (did I get that right?) still involved in the revising, or was it a separate group?

As for cross-community, we might be able to track down some of the previous Dersehunt players and invite them specifically.

RE: Mafia General Chat
Hi guys

Your representative has been scheduled for the game below.

Game 2 - May 2 (36/12 phases, European deadlines)
CHDog (Irish Poker Boards)
Christian (Swedish Hattrick.org community)
Cormag (The Millennium Forums)
Dyslexicon (Personality Café)
Jan (Super Mafia All-Stars)
Jeremy Davis (Grand Prix Racing Online)
Joga bonito (Football Forums)
Klopp (PilkarskieForum)
LimitlessEdge (Comic Vine)
Mist (Lupus in Tabula Online)
NotACop (PokerNet)
phantomEclipse (Chocolate Pi)
Pikachamp (BisaBoard)
silver (Dominion Strategy)
wikey (Further Entertainment)
Yatta (Xtratime)
Yayap (SC2 Mafia)

The game is taking place on Mafia Universe. You can find the specific subforum dedicated to the championship here: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/foru...nship-2016

I want to talk about and spectate the game - what do I do?

If you wish to actively spectate and show support for your representative, then there are two ways of doing this.

1) There will be a private spectator thread on the site for each game that you may request access to. Simply register on the site and PM the user "Thingyman", and I will add you. Feel free to spectate games that your representative isn't in as well. These threads are published after the game completes.

2) We have a spectator chat on Skype, with currently more than 140 people in it. It's very active and fun, I highly suggest you join it if you have Skype. Just add me: thingyman. Please let me know which community you hail from when adding me.

None of these two chats/threads will be spoiled!

Finally, we kindly ask that you refrain from commenting too much on the games in public on this forum, as the other representatives will easily be able to find and read through this (as has happened in the past). I can't control what you do here, but out of respect for the integrity of this Championship, it's best if you don't discuss your reads on your representative or the other players or make comments that could potentially indicate your reads. I.e. even something like "oh man, our representative is totally being his usual self right now" is not good. Speaking very generally about what has happened so far in the game (so as to update your fellow community members) without commenting on it is fine though.

I hope this doesn't seem too strict to you guys, but the game can become very uncomfortable (and unfair) if there is discussion about it outside of the game thread. If you want to have your own private spectator chat, that is of course also totally fine and I even encourage it (I'd love to be added if you make one of these) :)

I wish your representative and your community all the best of luck for this season! :)
