    Default Real-Time Mafia

    "He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot, will be victorious." -- Sun Tzu


    (Image from Smogon.)

    Sometimes life is too busy for sustained mafia playing, and it's ever harder to find a "casual mafia game." Mafia games played out in real-time can solve both problems. In this thread I'd like to organize event times for and invite people to mafia games played over IM services (Skype, AIM, MSN, or whatever service you use to feel good about yourself.) Think of this thread as a club for scheduling more social games. (Approved by Mintaka and Paperhorse, in that order.)

    Anyone is welcome to propose a date or arbitrarily start a game.

    Since this is more informal you'll want access to The Skype TWR Chat to play. Their skype names for bugging them about it:

    Mintaka - minbmgf
    Paperhorse - lilypotter37
    Parma - parmalai
    Zenax - theamazingzenax

    My own Skype name is nick.murray57 if you want me.

    Per Mintaka's suggestion I've added some suggested role setups and some basic small-game vocabulary.

    Basic Vocabulary:



    If you're hosting you generally want your setup to be known to all players. Exceptions can be made for Insane Mafia (give every player a broken role).

    3-6 Players:



    7 Players:



    8 Players:



    9 Players:

    Can I point something out? In voice mafia things can get very hectic with everyone trying to talk at once. So I would just suggest doing a group chat thingy. totally not saying this as I don't have voice capabilities ATM

    In the past we've done more informal sessions. Players who can't speak can still listen in and type in the group. If things get too big we can break up into smaller groups.

    Also: Counting votes has been a concern in the past, since votes are placed contemporaneously in the main chat. The current solution is to have a separate chat meant exclusively for voting. Does anyone have any better ideas?

    The seperate chat for votes makes a lot of sense. It'd be too much work to scroll through the history of the chat log for the votes, and would take to long.

    I'm interested, as long as not having a mic isn't a problem.

    Since this is supposed to be ad hoc I hope it doesn't matter: I just learned that I can't be online at 2 PM EST on Saturday. It doesn't require me to set anything up so as long as someone dependable who can host is online at 2 PM everything's fine. I've heard from other people that Saturday would not be such a great time after all either. Is the current time fine, or would people rather that the date be moved to Sunday at roughly the same time? (If no one responds then I'll reschedule it.)
