View Full Version : Micro Mafia Theme Ideas

03-12-2010, 18:29
Back in December, I was craving some real life mafia but did not have enough people for a good game. So, I went online and searched for a set-up for a 2 person mafia game. After adapting some ideas I found, I discovered that these micro games are incredibly fun! It also translates well to a 3 player game, which is what this version will be. Yep, 3 player mafia with potentially multiple day phases (no night phases, sadly) and plenty of deception! The game will start next week Wednesday and will last 2-4 days. A full description of the rules will be up by Sunday night CST.

I'm looking for 3 players who share a theme preference.

Possible theme ideas include...

-Classic Mafia
-Harry Potter
-Other Suggestions Welcome

Feel free to indicate multiple preferences or no preference at all.

How does a three player mafia game work? :inquisitive:

Even more pondering is how a 2-person mafia game works.

Wouldn't the townie automatically know who the mafioso is, and then the mafioso just kill him? That's like Rock Paper Scissors without Paper.

It works very well when playing face to face. The one thing that I forgot was that this style doesn't lend itself to themes and storytelling, which are probably the most important parts of online mafia. Sorry that this never got off the ground. I had a clever idea and forgot to think it through. If anyone is still curious about how to play it in real life, I can probably right up the rules sometime. Otherwise I think I will just let this one die.

Really, I don't see how 2 people can play mafia. It would be a tie for the lynch, and assuming you couldn't double lynch, it would be a flip of the coin. And if it was just a "draw" then the townie would die anyway.
