Mafia Hosting 2.0

  • Due to the difficulty of updating the old thread for mafia hosting (we needed to contact a mod whenever we wanted to do so), I thought we needed a new one. Although there still isn't too much competition for hosting, it is more difficult to follow the threads in this forum's setup. This thread will allow us to keep track of currently running and past games as well as the list of future hosts.


    Please post here if you want to be added to the host queue, and follow this thread if you want to stay updated on the current mafia round.


    Past Rounds:
    TB's Nobody Expects the Mafia! [Round 1]
    MK's Self Defense Against Fruit [Round 2]


    Open Signups:
    Eric's hosting.


    Current Round:
    <None>


    Host Queue:
    <Empty>

    Looking at that account stats, either you don't know how to play, or you've decided to see how bad an account you can make..?

  • I can host another one - eventually. Classes started and so I have less forum time. Hoping someone can host one before then.

  • If someone will host! Lol.


    As I said, I'll host again -- just not this week. Need someone to step up to the plate.

  • I will host if someone can co-host with me. I get confused with all the balancing shit.

    "Fair" mafia number is 1 mafia out of 4 players rounded down.


    If it's 3/12, that's exactly 1/4 -- be careful giving mafia strong power roles (like janitor). Instead, give the town some good power roles. If it's 3/14, give the mafia a janitor. See how that flies?


    If you're going to do something bizarre, balancing is out the window anyway. No games with wolves are ever balanced, for example :p.


    "Is my game reasonable?" -> ask this question: "Will a worst-play situation for town in the first 3 KPs still allow town to survive to KP4?" If the answer is "yes, but they will pretty screwballed after that," then your game is probably reasonable. That's the check I always use, and my games are, I like to think, fairly well-balanced usually :p. (Wolves change this -- then you should assume a worst play reasonable scenario instead, because worst-possible would be that the wolf eats everything and the game ends for sure. You don't have to plan for that :p.)


    If you actually need a co-host (more guidance than the above), I can do that -- provided you do most of the work then just let me check it for balance. We're usually low on players, though, so dropping two for hosting might be lots!

  • Is this a game based on town of salem?
    If so I'd like to join.

    Sort of....it's the right idea, anyway :p.


    Unfortunately it looks like the community here for the game has gone away with the forum switcheroo. We can try to gauge interest for another game, but I suspect that there won't be enough people around to run a good round.

    Who would have guessed that shutting down the forums for a month and changing peoples' usernames might make people leave?

    Take yo' salt and bring it somewhere it might be useful MK. For example: the dinner table. (I have to get salt at the grocery store what is this?)


    If there's going to be interest in this again, maybe we should try running one. I'll have a little time around turkey day so I can start one around then...

    We ran the last two. Maybe Kerzi, she said she would host after me.

    You should ask her then -- I don't believe she's particularly happy with me at the moment!

  • Aight, update me privatelly if anything happens please.

  • Lol well I was considering starting a round but now you can't edit posts so I won't even be able to run a round at all due to inability to edit the OP after each KP XD.

  • I would be as well, if there was interest in starting a round of mafia. I doubt there will be, though :p
