Check here for a set of basic rules.

And here is a bunch of the roles.

One person is the host. The host chooses roles for the players. These roles are usually townies or mafia, and there are a few specialized roles on each side. There are day phases, where players talk and try to find out who is mafia, and one person is usually lynched. Then there are night phases, where players with important roles tell the host what they want to do, and the mafia kill a player. The town wins if they kill all the mafia, and the mafia win if there are as many mafia as townies. Those are the basic rules. Does that help?

That's the generic game of mafia. Perhaps sometime in the near future someone will try something different?

I was going to apply Mana in a mafia game, but I changed it out of the fact that I would have rather played Mafia in a haunted mansion!!!! And, the aspects of the original SHFBA didn't really work out.....

I will have something interesting for my next game. (And it won't be as confusing as #15.)

Lol, you can see it in the Mafia Sign-Up Thread, but I thought of that idea myself actually, and I thought, "THIS COULD BE THA BEST GAME EVAR!" until the horrible truth dawned on me...

Regen did it first.

He stole that idea from Time Travel Mafia on Wikipedia.

I have a good idea (I think), but I haven't played enough to host yet and I don't want my idea taken.

My mafia game will also be very, very different. But I might need a co-host to help when the time comes.

Wow, I sparked some good brain cells in people there! Now I've just gotta play 3, then I can go wild.

Also, Mr. O, nothing's happening in Mafia Game #15, so can you set a deadline or something to speed up the process, please? Thanks.

How do you play mafia? Well, using my patented 3 step system, you can be the best player ever!

Step 1: Admit that you are a mafia, even if you aren't.
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit!

Very funny, Regen.

Use of the Regeneratizer system can result in repeated lynching, agitiation, and a feeling of not winning. I am in no way affilated with Regeneratizer, so throw all of your complaints at him, not me.
