There are other mafia variants such as "two rooms and a boom" style (http://www.tuesdayknightgames.com/tworoomsandaboom/) where there is no elimination, and the goal for one team is to get their "bomber" in the same room as the "president" of the other team by the end of a certain day. At the end of the day each "room" votes for a negotiator who will pick to transfer a certain number of players from their room to the other room thus shifting the balance each day but also potentially moving the critical roles from or to their win conditions.

Then there are support roles to make the win conditions harder (team doctor must find out "president" before last day is over, team engineer must find out who the "bomber" is to make sure bomb is successful prior to end of last day), or third party roles with alternate wincons etc... 

Pro's: no elimination so people stay in the game.  Fixed length of game.
Con's: needs active players since if a person with an critical role doesn't show up then it's almost impossible (suppose a detective role could help mitigate this somewhat).  Some roles  can't be modified for forum use. host needs to control two rooms (threads) to prevent people from posting in the wrong one and hard to control PM's across rooms.

My general strategy with Roles in 77 is twofold.

A: To make more difficult roles (particularly the Bomber) more approachable to new players so that whoever gets those roles will actually go for the win instead of just sitting out or just settling for causing chaos.

B (this is the big one): I believe that giving each player some kind of ability or perk beyond just a single vote in a day thread will increase participation. Players will feel obligated to be more active than they might have been because each player can potentially greatly influence the direction of the game. After all, a townie who uses the double vote at the right time could potentially rob the mafia of what seemed to be a surefire victory.

I'm confused why pokepal148 thought he needed to come up with a Mafia game quickly. Originally, Stratos was down to host Mafia 76 but he swapped with Lucario and is supposed to be hosting Mafia 77. Did Stratos arrange another swap or did pokepal148 not check the hosting list in the OP?
Do you like The Legend of Zelda series?

Then come follow along and check out the action on NWR's Mafia Forum as we pay tribute to the series in our latest Mafia misadventure.

My main thing was to be timely with Neal stepping down and the big handover of power. That's what inspired the theme after all. Also I unfortunately did not check the hosting list because I am a chump proud American and if there's one thing us proud americans don't do is read.

Why don't we do this... See if Stratos can host number 77 and take it from there. If he can then Stratos can make a sign up thread and we can temporarily lock pokepals signup thread until Stratos game is over.

I'm fine with letting Pokepal go before me. This is the heaviest quarter of school for me so my time is (unsurprisingly) very limited. I'll have more wiggle room in April with a light final quarter, and be totally free mid-June when I graduate.
