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.

What Is Mafia?
Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a famous social deduction game that puts 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. Cut into two ‘Phases’, Day and Night, the game entails Town trying to eliminate the Mafia via discussion and voting while the Mafia are trying to not get caught in order to match or outnumber the Town in order to win.

Interested in joining or learning more? Check out our MafiERA OT!

Fundamentals:
1. All site-wide rules apply here.
2. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not discuss this game outside of this thread.
3. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not directly quote or post screenshots of any PMs, posts, conversations, or any other type of document that was not made in this thread.
4. Players are allowed to lie, within reason, about any game-related material such as the content of a role PM.
5. Please respect all of your fellow players. We ask that you respect a player’s personal pronouns and be aware of accessibility when using non-default text formatting. Please do not refer to, or discuss, player activity outside of this thread, for the sake of the game’s integrity.
6. Mafia can be an intense and stressful game at times with situations becoming heated. Despite this, being overly hostile towards your fellow players is not allowed. If a player is caught name calling, using slurs, and/or other aggressive behaviors determined by the gamerunner they will be warned. If these behaviors continue despite the warning that player will be modkilled. No exceptions.

Activity:
7. Players are required to post a minimum of 10 posts per day phase. Failure to adhere to this will first result in a warning. On the second offense that player will be removed from the game.
8. If a player posts fewer than 5 posts in a day phase without alerting the gamerunner to their absence, they will be removed from the game without a warning.
9. If you are unable to continue playing for whatever reason, please contact your gamerunner.
10. If a replacement is added to the game, they may request the current/upcoming night phase to be extended up-to 48 hours to allow time to catch up.

Voting and Lynching:
11. In order to vote for another player to be lynched, you must present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: playername[ /HIGHLIGHT ]. Misspelt votes are only accepted within reason. Any other format will not be accepted.
12. To remove a vote from a player, you may simply vote for another player, or you may present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]UNVOTE[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
13. Players may vote for a “No Lynch” to end the day phase without a lynch. This is done by using the formatting above and typing: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: No Lynch[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
14. When a player has received a strict majority of available votes (>50%), the day phase ends with the lynch of that player. Once a day phase has ended any in-game discussion stops and votes cast after that will not be counted.

Death and the Spectator Thread:
15. Once you are dead, you may no longer discuss the game in any manner with any of the remaining players.
16. Once dead, players may have a choice between the spectator thread and the replacement list. PM your gamerunner for more information.

Other
17. Outside of explicit allowances the use of the highlight tag is strictly for gamerunners. Do not use it.
18. Do not edit your posts or hide content in the formatting. Repeat offenders will be removed from the game.
19. If a player is banned or they are replaced due to inactivity they will have the lowest possible priority when signing up for a spot in their next game.
20. Gamerunners reserve the right to add, remove, or modify existing any rules at any point, and enforcement may be applied retrospectively. However, all players will be informed of changes beforehand.

Simon is a role attributed to a player, that lasts for one Night and one Day, in that order. While being Simon, the player still retains whatever previous role they had.

During the Night, Simon needs to decide how it will influence the next Day.

The available commands are:
None left!

Unavailable commands:
1-shot, everyone becomes Doublevoters. Can't be used during mylo/lylo.​
1-shot, Simon allows for discussion, and only discussion, to happen during the following night on the game thread.​
1-shot, No Turbo during the Day, it will end only once time runs out.​
1-shot, Simon steals a player's voting right and becomes Doublevoter for that single Day. Can't be used during mylo/lylo.
1-shot, Thunderdome, only two chosen players can be voted for. Can't be used during mylo/lylo.
1-shot, everyone gets Roleblocked.​

Then, at the start of the Day, Simon also decides who will be the next Simon starting from the next Night.
A player that was already chosen to become it can't be it again, unless *every* living player has already been it.

If the player chosen is eliminated during the Day, a different player is randomly chosen to be Simon.

And so it was that the group decided to play Simon Says. While some like Verelios and TheChuggernaut insisted that playing a board game would be a better idea, others like Faddy were already practicing their reflex skills for the upcoming game.

But, obviously, before starting there was something that needed to be decided: who would play the role of Simon? Who would tell the room what to do?

Everybody started yelling “me!”, “me!”, “me!”, but that quickly lead to nowhere. They sat there a while longer until they reached an agreement.


---


ATTENTION, PLEASE:

On this Day, no player will be lynched. Instead, you will vote for who you think should be Simon. Simon is an additional role (meaning you will still retain your old role and alignment after becoming Simon) that will allow its player to change the flow of the game in the future.
Players who vote for themselves today will not have their votes counted. In case of a tie, the first player to achieve that number of votes will be chosen.

And, as a special occasion, Simon will be immune to kills on Night 1.

cabot has died!

Hello, and welcome to Simon Says!

You are a Hammerer: you can secretly place your vote on a player by sending me a PM with the command HAMMER: <Player Name>.
You can only use your power if such player needs only 1 more vote to reach majority and be lynched, and if you do not currently have a vote on them.
This means that by using your power, you will secure the lynch and end the current Day.
In order to protect your identity, your previous and public vote will still appear in the vote count, while your secret vote will appear as belonging to “The Hammerer”.

Your partners are [redacted]. As part of the Mafia, you have access to your factional kill which can be executed every Night by posting the command KILL: <Player Name> on your private thread.
You are aligned with Mafia and win when your faction controls the majority of votes at day start.

The game thread is here. The Mafia thread is here.
If you have any questions, please send a PM to Pedro.
Simon says: "After reading this message, please reply to it to confirm you received it".

Good luck!
The Day continues, carry on.

The discussion had barely started when cabot told the group he was starting to have a headache. The host politely showed him to their bedroom where they kept their medicine, carrying a glass of water.
A few minutes have passed and the host was back in the living room, by themselves. The group questioned if cabot was coming back, to which the host simply replied that he was going to stay on the bed there until he felt better. But not to worry, as they still had a game to play!


Luckily, by the time the host returned the group had already chosen who would start the first round of the game as Simon: Faddy. They were all excited to see what command he would come up with.

No one has been lynched! Instead, Faddy becomes Simon.

Everyone will learn more about Simon at the start of Day 2.

Night 1 begins now, and will end in:


Commands will be accepted until 2 hours before the start of the next Day phase.

After a few rounds of fun games, everyone hears a loud thud coming from the kitchen. They get up and run to see what happened, and find Vere on the floor, unconscious.

The group assumed he must have passed out after the long night, so they carry him to the bed next to cabot, who seems to still be sleeping.
They won’t admit it, but an awkward feeling starts growing in their heads. That’s when the host announces he’s gonna go out to the gas station to buy beer and smoke.



“But I’ll be back in 15 minutes, keep playing!”

Of course, since the host was the one who really wanted to play Simon Says, the group rests for a while and just starts talking until they return.

Hello, and welcome to Simon Says!

You are a 1-shot Governor: once during the game, you can stop a lynch from happening after a Day ends but before the player’s role is revealed by posting the command STOP IT! on the game thread; thus, the Day will end in a No Lynch.
You will have a strict 5-minute window to post the command every Day, be sure to not slip up and out yourself after that window is closed.
