Thanks to Fireblend for the banner, and Verelios for the title!

Hi hi, everyone, and welcome to our new Official Thread! This is our fourth season in here, and we're ready with more games of deception and murder for you!

If you were ever curious about the Mafia game and wanted to give it a shot, jump in! Our community is friendly and welcoming, and you'll surely make friends along the way, and we have help and support for new players interested in getting into mafia.



Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a famous social deduction game pitting two teams against each other: Town and Mafia. Mafia players know who everyone in their team is, while Town players only know their own alignment.

The game is divided in two phases: Day and Night. During the Day, all players discuss and decide on someone to voted out of the game. During the Night, the Mafia secretly chooses another person to be removed.

Town wins when all the Mafia players are gone, and Mafia wins when they match or outnumber the Town players.



Playing a game with us is very simple. When we are accepting signups for a game, all you have to do is fill out this form and post it as a reply to this thread. New players always get priority!

Pronoun:
Time zone:
Game:
If you wish, you can request a mentorship from one of our veteran players to guide you through your first game (more on that in the following posts).



Please use other players' indicated pronouns when provided. We want our community to be inclusive, and we take this seriously.

A Mafia game is a significant time commitment. Our games can take about a month to play, and you'll be expected to post and contribute to the ongoing discussion to help your team win.

Finally, don't forget to follow ResetEra's ToS and Member Etiquette. Though this is a game about lies and deception and things can get heated, this is just a game at the end of the day and we're all here to have fun.

But most importantly, welcome! Through various games, gambits, jokes, wins, losses, upsets, betrayals and triumphs we have formed a community of individuals who have become something like a family. We hope you will join us in our love of this game and give it a shot. You never know what might happen.

- The MafiEra Overseer Team (CaptainNuevo, Dr. Monkey, Fireblend, Pedro, Sawneeks, and Sophia)

Game: The Mansion
Gamerunner: Brazil
Players: 24
Complexity: Unusual
The ever-imposing Mansion sits atop the hills overlooking the city - and you're one of the select few to be invited into its halls to partake in the long-awaited gala. Wearing your custom-made mask and holding dearly to the unopened envelope you were told to carry with you at all times, you step off the car and through the silver gates...

(24 players, unusual setup but not bastard :P)

Game: Simon Says
Gamerunner: Pedro
Players: 14
Complexity: Unusual

It's the end of the month, you and your friends planned a small gathering one last time before the break is over. You all decide your friend's penthouse would be the best place to host the party, and that's where you are tonight.

After a few drinks, the party host speaks up:
"Hey, everyone, how about we play a small game? Like, Simon Says?"

"noooooo", says one of your friends.

"Party games are lame", says another.

"I don't want to, I'm shy", you, maybe.

Your friend continues:
"Come onn, it will be fun! Just imagine us following commands all tipsy like this. Here, I can put a twist on it: every person that loses a round dies!"

Everyone but the host, including you, nervously looks at each other.

"It was just a joke, y'all, nothing will happen in this game! Hey, you", the host points at you, "what do you say?"

You think Mafia would be a way better party game, but you don't have the energy to argue right now. "Sure, why not", you answer, and now you're playing a round of Simon Says.

List of Seasons 1 - 9 games

List of Season 10 games

List of Season 11 games

List of Season 12 games

Special thanks to all team members who helped during the previous season and our wonderful gamerunners for creating, and running, those games! Thank you:

Mafia Championships
Beginning in 2016 our community has been invited to the annual Mafia Championships hosted by Mafia Universe. Over 225 different forum mafia communities have participated in this event with hundreds of different players over the years. Representing us in these games are:
  • Sorian, who played in Season 3, Game 5; then the Final Game and got 4th place!
  • Ty4on and Natiko played in Season 4, Game 8!
  • Our latest champions: Dr. Monkey with CaptainNuevo as a back-up! Monkey has played in Season 5, Game 7, in Wildcard Game 2, and in the finals!
Mentorship program
For new and returning players who would like some assistance, we offer a mentorship program where a volunteer veteran player can assist you during a game. These mentors can not play the game for you or answer direct questions such as 'who should I vote for?' but can help with mafia terminology, general strategy, and other minor questions. You and your mentor will be given a private thread on Outer Mafia to talk with one another and we do not make these threads public after the game has ended unless requested. If you are interested in requesting a mentor, please contact your gamerunner.

For veteran players, if you would like to offer your assistance to the mentorship program please contact Sawneeks, or let us know in this thread. Do note, mentors are not allowed to play in the same game where they are mentoring a player.

That's a long time...

I do want a mentor. I should just contact @Brazil about it since he's the gamerunner right?
Yep, as long as you mention it in here they'll get a mentor for you. Also, as someone who had a mentor in my first game, good decision, I highly recommend asking for one because it really helped me out a lot in my first game.

Been a while guys! Been busy, but I think I can finally dedicate some time to a game. A smaller game like Simon Says would be perfect!

Well if the review thread is anything to go by, small games may become something more regular for people who can't dedicate time to the bigger games.

Fantomas, Mafia Player. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first Neutrally town scum. Fantomas will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."

one of our lovely OM folks can set you up. The mentor thread will be a thread between you and your mentor (privately of course) over on OM.

Thanks :)

i've been reading a bit on Mafia rules and roles and stuff. It's fairly complicated to have everything present in your head once you get past the basics.

Once you get used to it, you'll be fine. Any questions on terminology can also be asked of your mentor :)

Hope you enjoy the game and become a regular!
