Mafia LXXXVI: Sign-up Thread

Is there still demand for a Mafia game? Do the users who still check out this place once in awhile still feel like meeting up for another round? I guess we'll find out. Since I get the feeling that users may not check up on the forums as often as they once did (maybe once a week or so) I suppose it would be a good idea to let this sign-up thread run for a couple weeks meaning I'd likely launch the game for Sept. 27 although it could be sooner if it turns out this sign-up thread fills up quite quickly. So, let's test the water and see who would still be up for this. Sign up below in the thread if you are ready for any sort of Mafia action.

Perhaps the long break helped but I'm just getting really enthused on the prospect of actually hosting more more Mafia games. That said, it depends if we have enough people that miss playing it or want to play more of this game for awhile. Like if we can have a group of 16 - 20 players who are willing to play it regularly, I think I could pull off having a game every month for a year. Of course, if anyone else wanted to host a game during that time span then it would make it even easier for me to see us having a year of Mafia. When I say 16 - 20 players it allows for some players to take a break if they can't make a game because of life responsibilities and situations. But if a couple people sit out a game but a couple that sat out last game can make the next one then we can sort of ensure that we'd always have enough players to make a more lively game and knowing a certain minimum number will be available would also help make things easier when planning on what roles to have and how many.

Now I'm not expecting people signing up for this game need to feel they are being made to commit to playing a bunch more games in the future but I do wonder if there are players who feel they could so or would be able to make it for more games because they know what the schedule of them is in advance. Perhaps if you are a person who feels they'd be able to play in the majority of games then mention it in the Future Mafia Games thread and a list could be made there to see what a possible baseline would be for the expected minimum number of players in a game.

In. As for the mafia choices, some of them seem to depend on how many people sign up. But all three seem promising.

It suddenly occurs to me that if I do a Harvest Moon theme then I should have the game suddenly branch into two paths after a few days where one game is kind of subpar and the other game is better but now called Story of Seasons.

And then I’ll start a separate game that’s like yours but with a bunch of improvements called Stardew Valley.

Thanks, RAB! That means we've now hit the double digit sign-up mark.

Looks like we may be doing this Mafia thing again after all. But I'm still looking for at least 6 more players which means we are only 62.5% of the way there. I sort of mentioned on if we had a core group of 16 - 18 players then it would be easy to go ahead and do a bunch of games in a row. However, I should clarify that when I launched this thread, I had the number 16 in mind for the minimum amount of players to participate or I was going to call it off. I don't want to do a game with like 12 or 13. I know they've been done in the past but they've never seemed to turn out that great. There's something about the 16 mark. When a game hits at least that mark then the games seem to really take off. There's more action, more crazy momentum swings, more standout moments for players as new days seem to put new people in the spotlight. Anyways, I just sort of realized I should probably mention what my goal here is since we are now seeing the player list growing in size.

I feel I should join since I left everyone hanging with the game I was planning.

Just lots happened and I actually have a part time job now being a moderator on Silver Screen and Roll.  I am also on my online friends twitch channels not to mention me playing Switch games when I have the chance. I might be moving to a new place sometime this next year.

So tentatively in.  I will confirm more one way or another closer to the end of signups.

I said I'd like to launch the game on Sept. 27th if we had enough players but we currently do not. We are sitting at 12 and I want 4 more. I've been sending out some invites the past couple days but it could still be a bit of time before people check in on the forums and see them. So, I'll give this another week to see what develops but it may be that nothing does happen here.

I sent out invites to nickmitch, TheFleece, Luigi Dude, ThePerm, thatguy, Lucario, ejamer and RABicle. RAB and Luigi Dude did sign up. ThePerm may join. Lucario sent a message that he'd check it out but I've heard nothing since and that was a week ago. Just going by people who have played prior games or are still active and checking out these forums. I was debating if I should send something to ShyGuy but I always feel like he'd rather opt out and I'm pressuring him to play so he does out of civility. So, I've been hesitant to send an invite his way. I don't know. Anyone else I should be thinking of or that you'd want to send an invite to?

EDIT: Oh, GK! I was looking over the list of players from last game and I'm sending him an invite now. That'll be a pass from GK. Too bad. I thought he showed promise for being a good player for this game.

It is not. I'm giving this until Oct. 3 now before I call it. That will be over 3 weeks since I originally posted sign-ups. We either have 16 players then or the whole thing is called off. We are currently 3 players away from telethon player goal
