EB Mafia

A separate thread for a separate game might not be a bad thing, though :)

I got an Office game for Christmas I want to play. It requires 5 players, so whenever me and my wife have a couple over there isn't enough to play. It's a similar idea to Mafia in that one group of employees is trying to figure out who is getting downsized and who is getting a promotion.

Could probably be played on a forum.

Sounds like the EB Zombie game from many years ago...

Yeah, I remember that game. It could be resurrected the next exam waiting cycle as another option if folks don't want Mafia!

Ha ha!  I was going to suggest if we had only 6 players, to just play an online version of Clue or something like that lol.

During a recession we play that in real life lol.

I remember Glengarry Glen Ross when Alec Baldwin walks in and tells his real estate agents he's tired of their slacking and to motivate them he's having a sales contest:

"1st place - A new car.  2nd place, a set of steak knives.  3rd place, YOU'RE FIRED!"

I'd be willing to play a round. Should be much easier finding 5 people.

There are townsfolk (townies), and Mafia members. Townsfolk are going to try to eliminate the Mafia with extreme prejudice before the Mafia eliminates them. The game ends when either all of the Mafia is eliminated (town wins), or there are fewer townsfolk than Mafia members (Mafia wins). The game ends when either all of the Mafia is eliminated (town wins), or there are fewer townsfolk than Mafia members (Mafia wins).

The Mafia members are going to privately tell me who they would like to eliminate during the night. I will reveal to everyone what happened the next morning. Night eliminated players will not have their role revealed.

In addition to regular townsfolk and members of the Mafia, there is a Doctor, a Vigilante, and a Cop. The Doctor can choose someone to “save” during the night; if they choose the same person the Mafia or Vigilante choose, then that player will escape being eliminated that night. The Vigilante is a Regular Townsfolk who can occasionally choose someone to eliminate during the night. The Cop can “investigate” players during the day. The Doctor, Vigilante, and Cop are on the same side as the town.

During the day, everybody (Townsfolk and Mafia) will publicly vote for a person to sacrifice; I will eliminate the person with the most votes at the end of the day and reveal what their role was.

The Mafia members know who each other are, but no one knows anyone else’s role except me. I have sent more specific instructions to the members of the Mafia, the Doctor, Vigilante, and the Cop. If you did not receive a PM from me, then you are a regular townsfolk.

You may use this thread to vote and post about the game. Anyone (playing or not playing, eliminated or not) can use this thread to speculate, discuss, accuse, or otherwise participate in the game; just please make sure to follow regular EB forum guidelines.

To vote on a person to eliminate, mention me ( @SaltySteve  ) in a post on this thread and tell me specifically that 1) you are voting and 2) the username of the person you are voting to eliminate. Please submit your votes by 9:00 pm Eastern Time each day; I will count votes after that time as being for the next day.

Your vote only counts if you are playing and not yet eliminated. If there is a tie for most votes, I will pick one of the voted users at random; or have a best 2/3 rock paper scissors match. If there are no votes, I will pick a person at random (i.e. role will not matter) to eliminate; suffice it to say it’s in both groups’ best interest to vote for at least one person.

The first vote will take place tonight on Tuesday (Feb 18).

For reference, the players in this round are:

Ok so no cop, no doctor and no vigilante.  Only Townies vs Mafia right?

@SaltySteve I would like to vote for one of the mafia members.

This is the kind of obvious question mafia would ask.
