    EVERYONE GO JOIN THE NEXT GAME HOSTED BY @dudebo99

    FIND IT HERE!

    For people who seem to be under the impression I copied Town of Salem; please get your facts straight. Mafia has been around since the 1980's, and ToS is simply the latest iteration of this game. It was barely released one year ago.

    The first round of this was incredibly popular, so I might as well bring it back bigger and better than before.

    Hello all, and welcome back to the second Hypixel mafia! I know this is a really long post, but PLEASE READ/SKIM ALL OF IT. I will be enforcing every rule within here this time around, so it’s important that everyone knows what’s going on.

    What is mafia?

    To put very simply, Mafia is a game of lying, deception, subterfuge, and trickery. Every player will need to be ready to lie, extort other players, and do whatever is necessary (within the rules!) to stay alive and win the game.

    Mafia is a long-standing game that originated as a card party game. It quickly gained fame across forums, and the browser game Town of Salem is heavily based off of this game. I thought I'd bring this exciting game here to Hypixel.

    To elaborate, the game is divided into two teams: the town and mafia. Mafia know who each other are and can coordinate their actions privately. The goal of the mafia is to kill the town until they have the majority, while the Town needs to figure out who the Mafia is, and kill them.

    Townies on the other hand don't know anything other than their own role. To compensate, there are many more townies than mafia; usually the ratio is 1 mafia for every 3 townies. In other words, Mafia is a game of an informed minority against an uninformed majority. Can the mafia use its superior organization and knowledge to lead the town astray? Or can the town figure out the mafia and kill them before their numbers advantage runs out? That, my friends, is the question that will be answered over the course of this game.

    At the beginning of the game you will be PM’ed your role by me. This PM will have any specifics about your role, and it is here you may ask me any questions about your role. It’s important that you don’t share your role with everyone else though! The game is divided into two repeating phases: day and night. Day will last for approximately 72 hours and will revolve around deciding a lynch target by means of voting. Each player will discuss their suspicions, and try to decide who they can trust, during this day phase. Every player in the game gets one vote, and each player must argue and convince the other players to lynch their target. At the end of the day the person with the most votes is lynched; their alignment and role are revealed and they are removed from the game. The majority of the action in the game takes place during the day phase.

    Night is 48 hours long and is reserved for private actions. Any player in the game that has an ability (such as mafia kills, detective checks, medic protections, etc.) can use their power in this phase. Usually during the night everyone discusses the results of the lynch and makes plans for the next day. It serves as downtime from the emotionally charged days. After the night ends, a day post comes up with the results of who dies. After the day post, the discussion for lynch begins anew.

    Once there is a winner, everyone can talk freely about the game, and I will be handing out some virtual bragging-rights awards :3

    What are the rules?

    -All players remain respectful to each other. Mafia can get very heated at times, but it is important that players remember that this is a game. Any personal attacks of any kind will not be tolerated.

    -Players do not talk about Mafia outside of the Mafia thread. This means no PM’ing each other to make alliances or discuss the game. All posts about Mafia must remain within threads I state are to be used for the game. Players found to be secretly communicating will be immediately banned from the game.

    -If you won’t be able to post on a specific day or two, just let me know by sending me a PM. I can make special arrangements for you.

    -You may NOT quote or post pictures of PMs I send you. Doing this will result in a modkill.

    -You may NOT edit any of your posts, even if you make a big mistake. Period. If you have something else to say, put it in a separate post.

    -When voting to lynch a player, use the tag [VOTE] *Player Name* [/VOTE]. Any votes not in this format will not be counted. To unvote a player, use [VOTE] *Player Name* [/UNVOTE].

    -All forum rules apply here (duh).

    -If you ever have any questions, shoot me a PM. I’ll reply back to you as soon as I can (I do have school and extracurriculars, but expect a response within 12 hours).

    To try and prevent players from signing up and disappearing, I am requiring that any member who wishes to sign up has at least 50 posts on the forums. I think this is a relatively fair number, and prevents players from ditching the game and disappearing.

    Addressing a couple of concerns/problems from the first game:

    For those who don’t know, I’ve already hosted one game of mafia here on the forums. This game served more as a test run than anything; it was my first time hosting and many player’s first time playing, so there were definitely some issues that I hope will get paved out during this version. Below, I’ll go over each problem, and the changes I made to address said problem:

    This game isn’t like other forum games because players can’t join once the game started! How can you make mafia inclusive to everyone?

    Due to the nature of the game, I cannot bring on more actual players in the middle of game. It would cause way too many issues, and simply can’t be done. If you do not sign up during the sign-up period, you cannot be an actual player in the game. I know that this is different from many other games here on the forums, but the nature of Mafia makes it impossible to bring other people into the game without greatly unbalancing things. I really am sorry about this. However, you can become a reserve player (more on that below).

    I need to drop out in the middle of a game. Can I do this?

    First of all, let me say that I understand life happens. You may join the game, but something suddenly comes up and you can’t play anymore. I completely understand this, and urge you to always put real life before some forum game.
    However, if you know that you’ll be busy within the next three weeks and will be inactive, DO NOT SIGN UP. Modkilling players really does ruin the game, and I want to avoid that if at all possible.
    I would also recommend that new players who have never played mafia before read up on some other mafia games so you can determine if this is the game for you. Below, I have linked the first Hypixel mafia, as well as some other games.

    Hypixel Mafia:

    http://hypixel.net/threads/forum-game-hypixel-mafia-1-game-over-town-wins.277784/

    Other Mafia Games:

    http://zeldauniverse.net/forums/index.php/Thread/176709-Mafia-IX-Animal-Double-Crossing/

    http://www.sc2mafia.com/forum/showthread.php/27273-P-FM-4-Lovers!-(Town-Win)

    For returning players, be aware that this game will be much more in-depth and confusing than the first game, so it’s important you are able to follow what’s going on.

    Reserves: What are they?

    This game, I will be adding in a new reserve player feature. Reserves are people who want to play the game still, but miss the sign-up period. As a reserve, you will replace an inactive person. That way, I can avoid modkilling people, and we can get the maximum number of people playing.

    Activity: New Standards (IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ)

    I was actually quite happy with the level of activity most players put forth last game. Nearly everyone stayed active and followed the game, so I didn’t push any type of activity rule. This game, however, I will be setting some activity standards in place. Because this round is going to be significantly more advanced, and there will be much more to discuss, I will expect a minimum of 4 posts from every player during every day phase (though more posts is always good, and makes the game more exciting for everyone). This should only take about 20 minutes of your time every 3 days; not that hard.

    If you’ll be busy/ unable to post for whatever reason, let me know. If you don’t tell me, I’ll just assume that you’re inactive. If you go inactive without letting me know for 2 day cycles, you will be replaced/modkilled. That’s not good, so don’t be inactive!

    Tagging Everyone From Last Game/ People Who Showed Interest In Joining:

    @BaneOfShadows @Zerediah @pokeboy30 @Neil_PureShock @veko123 @King_Kramer @DragonKing87 @Elad :3 @Hexx_ @RainbowAndV @Cjl1agent @CyborPanda @SLIMEIFY @freeport_aidan @proxboxer @XCVigilance @Cynths @Pilzkopf777 @AceOfGrace @Kingtopia @dwlee99 @Natias180 @Maphia_Ace @bayleef0909 @spider7550

    *I hope that the tags work, but mass tags seem to act up sometimes. Hopefully everyone who wanted to know gets an alert. I'll try and send out a mass PM as well to anyone who was interested.

    Any Other Questions?

    Just let me know by sending me a PM or posting in this thread! Mafia is complicated, but is very fun and intense once it gets going.
