Money Mafia: A game  Reply with quote  

Special thanks to Jennyshark from the GameFAQ forums! Okay, so here how it goes. I changed the game so it can have some financial storyline.

A group of civilians have saved up 1,000,000 after the past 2 years. They plan to use this money to start up a successful business.

But 7 days later, murders have reached the town. The loot of money was claimed robbed, and the business founder was murdered. Cops are still finding evidence. The suspects of murder are unknown.

Now, depending how many people will play, sign up here. 2 killers, will be called the Mafia, aka the Killers. No one can reveal their roles. There will be a cop and a doctor, who sides with the civilians. Civilians have no roles, they just guess who is the killer. The Mafia is a seperate team.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The Scenario:

Mafia is a game that pits the forces of light against the forces of darkness. The players in a game of Mafia are residents of a small Italian village. The village is being terrorized by the mafia. During the night, the mafia roam about the village, selecting a law-abiding civilian as their victim. During the day, the villagers gather together, seeking justice, and vote to convict one of their number of secretly being a member of the mafia.



The Number of Players:

12+ ideal, may accept 8-12 with slight modifications. No maximum number, although becomes unwieldy with 24+.



The Goal of the Game:

The goal is different depending on what sort of player you are. If you are a member of the mafia, your goal is to kill off all the civilians in the game. If you are a civilian, your goal is to kill off the mafia before they kill you off. If you are the doctor or cop, you are on the side of the civilians and share their goal.

The Play:

Each turn consists of two phases. The first phase is night, the second phase is day. The moderator shall announce when each phase is occurring.

Night:

The mafia shall pm the moderator and tell who they have chosen to kill.

The doctor shall pm the moderator and tell who they have chosen to protect

The cop shall pm the moderator and tell who they have chosen to investigate.

Day:

The moderator will tell who has been assasinated. The victim is then out of the game, unless protected by the doctor. If someone is killed, he may not speak at all for the duration of the game, or in any other way communicate with the living.

At this point, the remaining survivors may vote to convict someone of being mafia. The survivors may freely discuss the situation. The doctor, cop or members of the mafia may reveal themselves publicly if they feel that it is in their best interest to do so (which it mostly is not). Lying is permissible, and, for instance, a mafia member may claim to be a doctor or cop for the sake of having someone (non-mafia) convicted of being mafia.

The moderator, after allowing for a period of discussion shall ask for accusations. Any player may accuse any other player of being mafia. If an accusation is lodged, the accuser shall be allowed to explain the reason for his accusation. Then, the moderator shall ask for a second. If the motion is seconded, then the accused shall be allowed to state a defense. Other players may comment briefly on one side or the other. Then, the moderator shall take a vote. If a majority of the surviving members vote to convict, then the convicted player is out of the game-- they have been put to death and may no longer participate in the game. If there is no majority in favor of conviction, the accused is aquitted and may not be accused again in the same turn.

The day ends when:

(1) Someone has been convicted and killed, or
(2) The moderator determines that no more accusations are going to be (or can be) made.

In case noone is killed during the daytime. The moderator shall allow sufficient time for accusations to be made, but shall not allow the game to drag on unnecessarily.

At the end of the day, the moderator shall terminate discussion immediately. Then, night falls.

Winning:

The game shall be won by the mafia if there are no more civilians left, or if the number of civilians left is less than or equal to the number of mafia left, in which case the civilians will never be able to muster a majority to kill a member of the Mafia. The civilians win if all of the mafia are convicted and killed.

I've played this game, but in person and without doctors. It's a lot mroe fun. Plus, you don't need 8-12 people, I've found that it's best with around six.

Hmm... I'm not sure yet. BTW, how is this "Money Mafia?" (Or just because it's on Money Talk?)
