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?

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.

OKAY!


I'm back in the game, done with school, and moving into a job with a semblance of normalcy at the end of the month.


I got a fun idea for a game theme too. I'll post a signup thread this weekend and shoot for starting the game first week of July unless there are any objections (maybe wait until after the 4th since that is a major holiday?).

Just a quick update. Planning my grad party and wrapping up my old role before transitioning to my new position in engineering is taking a lot more of me than I expected. Still shooting for July, but I'll wait a bit later. I'll get signups after my last day tomorrow (today). I'm taking Tuesday off before starting the new role Wednesday, so I expect to get something up in the next two days.

I'm sorry, I've been lazy since I cleared the school hurdle. No excuse, just living up my ability to be lazy. Also, I decided I did not like my theme and am reconsidering. I'll set a deadline of Sunday to post a new theme and signups.

Can never get enough of those unique experiences. Right now, no one is slotted to host any future games so things are wide open for anyone who wants to host whether it be Mafia 79 or something after it. Just choose a game and slot yourself in.

Khushrenada/ Linkle/ Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival I wanted to co-host a game with you for maybe game 80.  It is something that we talked a little bit about in one of the recent games near the end of the game.

Hahaha. Is that my name now? You can just stick with Khushrenada. I hear he's about to make a comeback to cash in on the nostalgia factor of all these NWR users who grew up with him as a face of the forums.

But, shoot. You're going to have to remind me about this co-hosting thing. I just remember being so focused to getting us to Mafia 75 and then possibly retire from hosting after that.

The only problem with having two hosts is that it means an even smaller pool of players.

Maybe we should have more games of Safe Words instead...

The only problem with having two hosts is that it means an even smaller pool of players.
There are certain tasks a second host can perform while actively playing the game like helping to write the story, locking the day thread at the appropriate time (although there is a bit of a trust thing with that one), running side stuff like my polls or that Bow-wow hunt thing (although if there is any sort of reward than the second host would have to remove themselves from any sort of eligibility for that reward.)
