icon Mafia (signups) (+2)  
Ah yes, the classic game of Mafia. I didn't think it's ever been played on this forum before, but apparently it has. Some of you may know it from the Hamumu forums (where it's a tradition) or the Mafiascum forums (where it's the entire point of the site). For those who've never heard of it before, here's the rules:

A probably much better explanation can be found here, but come back for the details of this particular game: http://www.sitesled.com/members/mikeburnfire/mafiascum04.swf

1. There is a day and a night. During the day, everybody can post and you try to figure out who is the mafia and vote to lynch them. During the night, no posting is allowed in the thread, and you take actions.

2. A quarter of the population is Mafia. They know who each other are and are trying to kill the townies by fooling them and additionally killing one every night.

3. About an eighth of the population each are Cops and Doctors. Cops inspect one person every night and see if they're guilty. Doctors protect one person every night from Mafia attacks. If there are multiple cops or doctors, then they work the same way as the mafia, knowing who each other are and deciding as a group who to inspect or protect.

4. Night cannot last any longer than a week, or those who have not sent their actions forfeit them.

5. The game ends when all the mafia are dead or there are more mafia than townies (at which point the mafia control the vote and thus cannot lose).

6. To vote, state in your post Vote: Someone. The bold is necessary. To retract a vote, state Unvote. To change your vote to Someone Else, Unvote and Vote: Someone Else.

7. When everybody has voted or somebody has more than half of the votes, day immediately ends and the person with the most votes dies.

8. When somebody dies, the host announces their role.

9. This particular game has no theme and an open setup.

10. This thread is for signing up. I shall maintain a list in this post and after a week or when I have at least 8 players, whichever comes last, start the game in another thread.

The list:
Chaco
Monkey
Stigant
RoboBob3000
NiroZ
Zed-man
Lamkin
Dex Stewart
kie
The Stew Boy
Timo006
Someone Else
TripleM

Suffecient players, time expired, game start!

I have no interest in this game, but I wanted to say that once in a while a mafia thread pop up on the forum. For example the thread over here.

Mafia has been played here before, and in other threads besides the one Jacob pointed out.

I'll sign up; I have experience with this sort of thing and like the game :)

I'd like to play, if possible. But I don't like everyone voting for me, as shown in your example.

Woah, I missed it by 8 hours? Ah well, signups are closed. Please wait while I distribute roles. The game will start at Night 1 once I have done so, and I shall post the thread. Then everybody should PM me, regardless if they have any night actions or not, so that I know they got their role and are still present.
