I had enough fun playing the current mafia, that I had all these ideas for a new Mafia game. I settled on an idea that is nearly identical to the current mafia rule set, with one exception. Instead of a "psychopath" role, it would be replaced with a "werewolf" role. The "werewolf" would work similarly to the psychopath except instead of killing his victims, he turns them into werewolves. The original werewolf is the only one that can turn others into werewolves. The other werewolves would function exactly as they had before, only now they would be on the werewolves team. To make it more tricky, none of the werewolves know who each other are, with the exception of the starting one, since he chooses his own victims. The werewolf side would win by turning everyone into werewolves.

The five themes listed in the poll above are all this version of Mafia. The only difference is the theme of the story and the name of the roles. Here is a brief synopsis of those themes:

Werewolves: Roles are identical except now there is a werewolf on the loose.

Vampires: Roles are identical except now there is a vampire on the loose.

Zombies: Roles are identical except now there is a zombie on the loose.


Forum Mafia: Roles are all changed to generic names for members on the forum (admin, moderator, etc.). There is also a "hacker" on the loose.

Robots!: Roles are all changed to robots. There is also a Rogue AI on the loose.

Again I want to stress that all these games are identical except for theme. They will all play out the same because all the roles are the same, just possibly different names.

Forum Mafia wins!

Please let me know which you would wish to play! Once we have one picked, it can be fleshed out. This game won't be played until sometime after LadyM's game ends.

Robots. Rogue homicidal AIs are big right now.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I think Forum Mafia would be cool if it had Flame Warriors or names of real Gamingstevians as roles.

Mafia is awesome.

That pretty much sums it up.

I like the Forum Mafia 'cause it makes it almost comically realistic-ish.

Flame Warriors yes.  GamingStevians no.
