Since we're playing mafia-style go, does anyone want to play Werewolf(aka Mafia)?
I don't mind moderating again.

For those who don't know what Mafia is, check wikipedia:

I'm in. I've played once about 8 or 9 years ago, and enjoyed it thoroughly.

We need at least 5 players for a game, or 8 players for a more normal game. I'd prefer 8, since it's the first game on this forum.

Come on people, sign up!

It seems like this only works in person?! :o

Works in forums as well. Different type of game, but interesting too (there's even a forum dedicated to having games of this online). Are you in?

Two more for me to start a game!

Two more players? Please? I promise it'll be interesting!

Here's the setup I plan on using for a five player game:

Werewolf: Kills one person at night.
Possessed: Wins if the Werewolf wins, loses if the Werewolf loses. Appears innocent to the seer.
Villager: Normal.
Seer: Picks someone to see at night. Will find out if it's innocent or not
Hunter: A villager in all respects, except that if he and the Werewolf are the only two left, the village wins

Sure, I'll play.

But remember: If I get eaten, then you get thrown out of KGS. :twisted:

(Just kidding. You hope.)

Yay! (I hope. :P)

But we still need one more.

If I may, I would like to suggest a slightly different ruleset than Mafia Go 1.

Instead of splitting people into two teams that everyone knows about, it may be better to keep the original plot of an uninformed majority fighting against an informed minority. The mafia would play black, and the town would play white.

Every night, the mafia plays a move. Every day, the town votes: either a move is made, or someone is lynched. This way, the town has to be careful about who to lynch, because if they are wrong, they're one down on people and have missed a move. The goal of the mafia is to win the game or outnumber the town, while the town must win the game or eliminate the mafia.

In either case, I think it is best to round the number of players to the closest board size, and use that, rounding up when necessary. I suspect that if 20 people show up, half of them will die before white agrees on what move to play first (at which point black will have played eleven times, hehe).

That seems an interesting ruleset. :)

I now have time again to moderate a game of this or a variant. Who is interested?

Post subject:  Re: Werewolf

i would like to watch how is played on a forum,. There is a custom game inside the starcraft2 optionals games which is called mafia, i am not shure what variant is, but is really entertainment to be a role talking game.

You can always check MafiaScum: Completed Games; Games still running

Hopefully I'll be able to run a game here, if there's interest. :)

A variant is a similar game to Mafia/Werewolf, but with different rules, like what we did with Mafia Go #1

For those interested in Mafia/Werewolf, and/or how it is played on a forum, we're now trying to bring new players to the BoardGameGeek Werewolf Forum. To that end, we're starting a bunch of games for new players, in what was called The Fresh Meat Initiative.
Here's the post:

Welcome to the Fresh Meat Initiative

Simply put, we want you to play Werewolf with us. We're always looking for new players and thought it would be fun to take inspiration from the upcoming RPG Geek Play By Forum Initiative (which you should also sign up for!)

What is Werewolf? It's a game of social deduction, similar to The Resistance: Avalon, but with more special roles. The informed minority of players (the wolves) eat one player a night, and you have to kill (lynch) one player each day in an attempt to find them. You live in a democracy, so whoever has the most votes at a set time (dusk) will be killed. An hour later dawn breaks and you find who the wolves ate.

"Isn't most of the fun trying to see facial expressions of who's lying?" That's what I thought too. I love playing Werewolf and The Resistance in person, but I love it even more online. We have the advantage of The Cassandra Project ("Cassy"), which automatically tallies votes, gives you a chat room with the moderator, allows for many things that can't be done in face-to-face gaming and other fun stuff.

For more information, consult Snaak's excellent Guide to Playing Werewolf on BGG.

I'm in, where do I sign up? We're running six games, with dusk at various times throughout the day. You don't have to be around at dusk, but it really helps: that's when the game tends to get frantic (and awesome), so it's best if you can be around to respond to all the wackiness. Here are the games (all times CST/BGG, and titles just for flavor):

Full Moon Party (4 am) (moderator: jamgar)
The Lion, the Witch and the Werewolf (9 am) (moderator: Sigafoos)
Blood in the Village Square (12 pm) (moderators: BlackSheep/TheSparky)
Not Everyone's Special (3 pm) (moderators: Dake/Urza47)
Howl You Survive This? (6 pm) (moderators: clockworkd/Phelanpt)
Castle Werewolfenstein (10 pm) (moderator: Taquelli)

If there's a huge demand for a specific time slot we can add a second game. In order to sign up, you need an account with The Cassandra Project. Send a geekmail to jmilum (or linguistfromhell before Monday the 7th) for an account.

I want to play, but I'm not sure I'd fully understand what's going on. Not a problem! You can ask for a mentor: a more seasoned player will be given a private chat room with you, and knowing only your role they can offer advice as needed. We have a long list of mentors available, so don't be shy! Just send me a geekmail and I'll get you set up.

Come join us! :tmbup:

P.S.- If you'd rather ask me about it instead of going through the above links, go ahead! :)
