I'll start on designing the game (with the help of whomever may or may not be interested) if enough people want in. (:
    I really don't think a 40 person mafia game is mafia.
    We have enough trouble getting enough sign-ups for 25~30 person games.

    And such big games can run the host ragged xD;

    I'd keep it fairly simple, and the game would be based on the films (so no need to worry about obscure references). (:

    I did notice that the games at ~20 players tend to take a while to pick up steam (in terms of sign-ups), so I didn't know if I was being overly ambitious. ^^ I could scale it down to perhaps 24 or 28, if that would be more viable?

    I think the hardest part will be designing the game (I wouldn't want the game to be improperly balanced). Updating it shouldn't be too bad... I hope. XD

    In my opinion 24 players is ideal if you want to host a big game; more than that you'll end up having loads of inactive players and no one to sub them for, without mentioning that it could take a while to actually get them all. That's why I stick to ~20 players when I host.

    Come to think of it, what's the biggest game that's ever been hosted on the forums?
    @Ryuutakeshi;'s Falconwing3 comes to mind because it was 30 people iirc.

    Pretty sure Falconwing 3 has been the biggest hosted ever since I started playing back in August. Not sure about earlier games.

    I would love a Star Wars mafia!! And I agree, I think 40 people would be a bit too large. 25 would be good though.

    The biggest game I've participated in was @PichuBoy;'s Sonic the Hedgehog mafia, and I think it was about 25 or so people. There ended up being a few inactives in that game that didn't get subbed, as I remember.

    The issue of not having anyone left over to sub in for inactive players actually hadn't even occurred to me. Damn, there went my plans for a battle on Hoth. XD

    So, it's looking like 24/25 might be the "sweet spot". I'll probably start on designing roles sometime tonight, since it's looking like the game would generate enough interest. ^^

    It can be lifesaving for a host to have a few subs, if you want your game to run smoothly. It's annoying when you give a powerful role to someone, only to see them not use it.

    Yeah, I could imagine that being an annoyance. I can only imagine an inactive Darth Vader. That would be bad for the balance of the Force.

    You've never seen any of the Star Wars movies?

    I'd recommend watching the original trilogy (Episodes IV, V and VI) before watching the "other" trilogy (Episodes I, II and III).

    Or actually, don't bother with The Phantom Menace.

    The Phantom Menace should be watched, if only for the lightsaber duel at the end. Epic music.

    And I'll watch the Sherlock Holmes movies eventually, along with the new BBC series.
