Re: MAFIA 39 - GAME THREAD

If people are cool with it, I'm planning on running M40, aiming to get started after people are back from WDC (and presumably just after ND's cultafia game, depending on the timing of that). Brainbomb has agreed to co-gm, and there'll be a setup ("Pandora's Box") ready soon.

I have always understood them as an integral part of the game. Sometimes, indeed, they can be used tactically.
Since you have little/no control over others’ NMR—and thus they can’t be used tactically—can you explain how your own NMR is ever a good move tactically?

Re: Phase length applies even to obvious disbanding?

I'm sure this isn't the first time this has been asked. Is there a summary of previous responses from admins/developers on this (e.g., impossible to implement, or lower priority, etc)?

Foxy, why aren't you playing?
I'm out of the country from Sept 14-23, and even if I thought I'd have reliable connection, I'll be touristing through a few different Central European cities, so won't have the bandwidth to actually. :cry:

Re: MAFIA XXXIX - SIGN UPS

I'm sad to not be playing, but here are my thoughts anyway. The way M33 played out had little to do with mechanical or set up issues, and I'm not sure you can make judgements on the setup based on that game. I think Town's early lead was more about the Mafia team playing pretty scummily, and the scu...

I meant if you arent usually scum, meta can be a real dread.

I just try to talk alot and cause alot of confusion. I like town to lose focus and make rereading impossible
Yeah, but what's your scum strategy?

Re: Tiny Hunt I Game Thread

I'm going to be pretty much out of range of the internet for 10 days in the middle of September, so I am already sad that I can't play the next game. <Shakes fist at sky> But yeah, I'm aiming to GM a game when October gets here, so go for it Jamiet or Yavuz.

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

It's already in the rules, but there's enough of a discussion on it (with the new forum) and enough questions that it's probably worth making it clear that the debate is closed.

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

I am less worried about outright cheating when it comes to +1'ing. If two players are going to agree to actively cheat, it doesn't matter if they do it by +1'ing or by emailing or by meeting in a dark parking garage in trenchcoats. I am more worried about dead players trying to help their team by go...

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

+1s are still not secure even with timestamps as you could +1, leave it there for five minutes and remove it. This is a good point. wait, if this is the case i feel like +1 should be banned for example, mafia team can agree that, at 4:00 PM EST, I will +1 the person that I scanned if he is cop or s...

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

I think +1'ing needs to be a uniform community standard, because if some games allow it, then I suspect it will bleed over into all games regardless of what rules an individual GM decides to make. "Oh, I didn't know it was banned, we were allowed to +1 in the last two games"...

Re: MAFIA XXXVIII: INFINITY WAR

As for Chippe—and apologies if this isn't appropriate—but I think at least a one game ban, and if he wants to come back and be part of the mafia community here, perhaps his punishment should be that he doesn't get access to the god thread until the game is over for a period of however many games.

Re: MAFIA XXXVIII: INFINITY WAR

On my phone and haven’t caught up on the game, but I am opposed to restart (unless the game has been compromised, which I think it looks like it hasn’t based in GM actions). I think it sets a bad precedent for bailing on games when things get tough, and that will harm future games.

Re: MAFIA XXXVIII: INFINITY WAR

I did not actually take Brainbomb's suggestion to restart seriously. I took it as a joke, because he said "Scumteam vote below" with his signup list. So I assumed it was a cheap gag to get scum to put their name on a list. Also, unless the GMs determine that the game has been compromised in a way th...

I'd support restarting this game if I can also get a restart on all the Diplomacy tournaments I'm losing, too.
