All Vanilla Mafia

Postby Walker » Mon Aug 19, 2013 2:44 pm

There was some interest in IRC yesterday for playing an all-vanilla mafia. I don't mind running one, but I'd like to gauge interest before setting anything up.

Here's a general idea of what the rules/setup would be like:

1. It's an open setup, meaning that all roles in the game are known ahead of time. The only roles are Mafia and Vanilla townie. There are no power roles, abilities, or items.
2. I'm looking for about 8 or 9 people who would play actively, I'd like something a little bit smaller and faster.
3. Game starts during the day, roles are revealed upon death, mafia is able to speak only during the night in a separate topic and is able to select one person to be killed each night. Game ends when mafia has majority or all mafia or dead.
4. Day phase lasts 1 week or until a lynch majority has been reached. Night phase lasts 2 days or until mafia sends in their kill target.
5. No talking via PM. Maybe we could allow more talking in IRC, on the condition that anything relevant gets pasted into the thread. I'm open to it, if people would prefer that.

So yeah, it'd be a pretty simple setup. The main draw of a game like this is that the only information you have is how people are acting, voting, and who gets killed each night. So you really have to pay attention to behavior and can't rely on outside information for scum-hunting. If anyone is trying to learn how to be better at playing mafia, a game like this is probably the best lesson you can get. If this goes well, we can try another crazier setup, I know a few people have ideas kicking around.

Feel free to post in the thread if you're interested, if we have enough interested people then I'll put together something more formal and we can play.

Yes. Also, yes.

I would like to express some concern with night-only mafia speak though. I speak from experience, that is incredibly limiting, it was an absolute nightmare in CK's game. In practice that short amount of time is not enough to collaborate, especially when a lot of people come and make one post a day at most.

I agree with you that for big games with lots of confusing stuff going on, you need a day speak. But I don't see the real need in a vanilla game. The only thing maf has to collaborate on is their night kill target, which I think 2 days at night is plenty of time for considering that they don't have to look for power roles, etc. I think it'd be more fun to force them to play off of each other in the thread during the day, and don't see the real disadvantage of making them do so.

If we really want to do night speak, that's fine too of course. I'd probably just tweak the numbers slightly less in maf's favor.

So I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and say there isn't enough interest in this to be worth it. RIP AWBW mafia.
