Thanks to @BigfootAUS for the awesome banner images! Welcome to the Mafia Master Document, your home for all information for playing mafia in the PokéBeach Forum Games forum. The contents of this thread includes: Information on hosting games, how to play, terminology, and an archive of all previous Mafia games hosted on PokéBeach. For any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact the Forum Games moderator, @Vom! Application Information If applications are open and you are interested in hosting a Mafia game, please PM your application to @Vom with the following information: Your prior Mafia experience, both here and elsewhere, both as a host and as a player Your general availability. Do you foresee any conflicts in the future that would prevent you from hosting? Allow approximately one month for a game of Mafia to finish. A draft of your thread, including the flavor of your game, a link to the Rules section of this thread (meaning your thread does not need to include the rules of how to play Mafia), and the maximum number of players your game can have (games should have around 12-16 players in them, but may have more or less if you feel the game calls for it). The co-host of your game (if you have one). First-time hosts are recommended to have a co-host, but it is not entirely necessary. You also must meet all of the following requirements to host a Mafia game on PokéBeach: You must have played in at least 2 Mafia games (or are playing in your second game currently) on PokéBeach prior to hosting a game. You cannot already have a game in the Mafia hosting queue or be hosting one already. If you have negative history on the forums, you may be required to complete the 2 game requirement again, or other requirements along with that, depending on the severity of your offense. (If you are not sure if you have more requirements to become a Mafia host, ask a Forum Games Moderator.) Your Mafia game's sign-up phase should begin no sooner than roughly halfway through the currently active Mafia game (when over half the players are dead). As an upcoming Mafia host, you should keep an eye on current Mafia games to spot when they reach that halfway point. If you're unsure when to start your game, feel free to contact a Forum Games staff member and we will let you know. Sign ups should not begin any later than 5 days after the previous game's endgame has been posted. There may be no more than 2 active Mafia games at any given time. Spots for hosting future games will generally open once the currently-active game finishes. This thread will be bumped when new spots are available.
