Please be advised that there might be some initial weirdness with OM while I make some adjustments.

This is the dockmaster, may I have your attention please.
I have loaded you all into your individual boats. If you see anything unusual or out of the ordinary when you access Outer Mafia, please contact Grizz, CaptainNuevo, or myself IMMEDIATELY.

If you see a board that you should not have access to, DO NOT ENTER IT.

If you have any trouble with site access, please let me or CaptainNuevo know.

Thanks

Absolutely! We can put you on replacements or you can spectate this first game - we have a satellite site where we run spectator threads and keep resources, so you'll need to sign up there anyway. It's up to you. We're happy to have you either way. Welcome to the community!
I'm fine with being a replacement. Thank you so much for everything and I'll sign up right away.

Edit: In fact I just did and I just looked at the rules. Part of why I'm fine with being a replacement is that I'm in the middle of moving, but I'm pretty sure I should be able to still do the 10 posts during the day phase even with that going on.

Well, the promotion didn't work out, but I may have got myself a secondment, so I might not have to put up with the helldesk for much longer. Now that everyone's boarding, could I put in a spec request, please?

Your account is approved so you should have access to more parts of the site now.

The Mafia Universe Championships are underway. I am replacing Rover as our representative. The game starts on Monday 20th.

Details below.

Your representative has been slotted into this game below. So as you can see, their game starts Monday. I wish them the best of luck! :)

GAME 4 (MAY 20, 36/12, 5 PM EDT EOD))
Apoc (Mafia Universe)
Carotte (Gare aux Garous)
DefinitionOfAutism (GreyWolf Eclipse Lycans)
Dendrek (MMO Champion)
digitaldude (Manga Helpers)
Distorted (Skwirl Gaming)
Faddy (ResetEra)
Gravebound (Minr.org)
Juan_M6 (Spanish Hattrick.org non-HT)
mendel (Kongregate)
notquitethere (Bay 12 Games)
Okowoko (Świat Łukasza)
Phaze (MafiaManiac)
roro__b (Swedish Hattrick.org non-HT)
sKeith (Boards.ie)
sothys (PokerNet)
tartina (Lupus in Forum)

Do you wish to spectate and/or talk with players from other communities?

We have a big server on Discord (1,000+ members) for those that want to spectate and talk about these games. The representatives will be added to this channel too after they die. Or if you just want to chat with people from other communities, we have a general chat too that is unrelated to the Mafia Championship.

1) CLICK HERE TO JOIN: https://discord.gg/zdeEhcg

2) Upon joining the server, please inform us of who you are and which community you are from. We will then give you the necessary permissions to see the spectator channel. This is necessary to avoid the wrong people (the representatives and their backups) joining the channel.

You don't need to have Discord installed in order to join the channel, as there is a web version.

Do you want to have your own private community spectator chat?

This is definitely both allowed and encouraged. However, I ask that you please do everything possible to make this chat private and inaccessible to your representative, backup and your representative's opponents. It's important that your thoughts and comments don't influence the game. In other words, please don't post about the game in public threads -- this is very important.

Where do I get more info?

Refer to this thread: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/threads/21905-Season-6-General-Information

This thread will tell you all the details about this season. It also includes the list of participating communities and their representatives.

Good luck Faddy !

If people would like a spec thread to discuss the game let us know and we can make one and grant those that have requested access in.

I don't know a single website other than Era and MU, and why does a Poker website have mafia games?
Poker is a psychological game too so it makes a lot of sense. You have to treat different players differently and players often switch play style to mess with others like start of passive, then go for an aggressive bluff hoping people interpret you actually having good cards since you played so passively. Reading players is the most important in poker.

Yeah, what do poker players know about mind games, reading behavior, and bluffing, anyway?

I'm not saying it doesn't make sense, it's just so bizarre to me. Like if you asked me what websites you think host mafia games, Poker websites would be the last thing that comes to mind.

And overall, part of the appeal of Mafia is how universal it is an how easily it can be applied.

I guarantee you, Poker is not the weirdest forum to have been invited to MU. I suspect the organizers just google looking for Mafia threads on any forum they can find.

Funny story: They didn't actually find us at GAF. They found Outer Gafia/Mafia and I had to explain that we were actually the NeoGAF community.

Mafia Universe started on poker site 2+2. They hosted the first mafia world championships then realised the forum software wasn't good enough so they made a whole new site.

Did not know that, interesting.

At this point I'm assuming the Pornhub mafia community is also participating.

It’s almost strange how long it took GAF to evolve a Mafia group
.
I don't think there was ever a precurser to the current community on GAF. I guess the unreliability of Off Topic and site crashes that accompanied gaming news wasn't condusive to forum mafia. Imagine a game getting suspended while you wait for E3 to finish.

I don’t think site crashes have that big of an impact and while it’s long ago iirc it was really only E3.

Crab I think talking about being surprised there was no community in his first game.

We worried about it a few times, debated what to do if the site went down. I don't think it was ever a HUGE issue. We also opened Outer Gafia pretty early, (after S3, I think,) so we had ONUWs and Minis and stuff.

Honestly, I didn't know Forum Mafia was a thing before I saw Crab's thread on GAF. But since then, I've seen threads on a bunch of forums.

Maybe the news heavy content made the site more focused on moving forward while a lot of other forums have slower places where more casual discussions prop up and forum games. IIRC community sites weren’t a big thing early on.

Searched for Mafia communities on Pornhub, found a Russian video with Eng subs called "Playing Mafia game with horny college girls part 1", shit was intense, they played for 15 mins of strip mafia and then the sex started and ruined the video. Tried to find part 2 but can't find it anywhere.

Good luck Faddy. You're responsible for the good name and reputation of every single member on Era.

No pressure.

I'm not the only one trying to figure out the rules to "strip mafia," right?
