    Welcome, welcome all, to Video Game Mafia! This is the the twenty-seventh installment of the insanely popular forum game known as Hypixel Mafia. I’m your host, @Aidan1600904, and I've got an exciting game in store for you all!

    Before the game begins, however, I’ll need explain the rules and provide some information on how exactly mafia works. All players who want to participate should read through this thread in order to make sure that they have a firm understanding of the game. I understand that nobody wants to read through an entire essay, so I've tried to condense everything as much as possible.

    In its simplest form, Mafia consists of two sides: the minority (Mafia), and the majority (Town). The Mafia's goal is to kill the innocents, while the Town's goal is to kill the Mafia. At the beginning of the game, I will secretly send everyone their role. The Mafia will know each other, while the members of the Town will only know their own role.

    The game has two phases, the first of which is Day. During Day, the Town must choose someone to Lynch; they are trying to eliminate the Mafia, but the Mafia can lead them astray by casting suspicion elsewhere. Generally, players will vote for someone they think is Mafia (the Mafia will vote so that they seem to be doing this as well, and might even vote for each other to confuse the Town); when a player gets a majority of the votes, they are lynched. I reveal their role, and it becomes Night.

    During the Night, no one can talk in the thread. The Mafia, however, can speak to each other privately to plot strategy and decide who to murder before the next Day begins. In this way, they can silence members of the Town who are threats to them. At the end of the Night, the murder is carried out and another Day begins. In effect, the Town gets to kill someone, and then the Mafia gets to kill someone.

    The game alternates between Day and Night until either the Mafia are eliminated, or the Mafia have killed everyone else.

    To make sure that the game goes smoothly and everyone has fun, there are some rules I have put in place. It's important that everyone understands and reads through these, because they will be enforced. Breaking any of these rules will get you first a warning, then a negative in-game modifier, and then a modkill from the game. It's three strikes and you're out.

    -Be respectful to each other. Mafia can get heated at times, but keep personal insults and crude remarks out of the debates.

    -Don’t discuss the game outside of this thread or any associated PMs/Quicktopics. Similarly, secret codes created outside of the game aren't allowed either.

    -Don’t quote or screenshot any messages I send you in your PM. This will get you modkilled very quickly. In addition, do not ask other players to post their entire PMs or specific wordings from their PMs. This will also get you modkilled.

    -Don’t gamethrow. This includes killing someone not to help you win the game, but because you want to help a friend or have a personal grudge against a specific person. Just play to your win condition as best as possible.

    -Try your best not to go inactive, as it ruins the game. I understand that IRL stuff happens; just PM me or let me know in this thread if you'll be gone for a long period of time. This game does require reading, so do not sign up if you're not prepared to read quite a few pages on a daily basis. I've found that Mafia requires about 45 minutes of your time on a daily basis. Failure to post at all during a day cycle will give you first a warning, then a modkill or replacement.

    -Dead men tell no tales. If you want to discuss the game after you’ve died, I can send you a link to the dead thread.

    -No game-related posts during the night phase.

    -No editing or deleting posts.

    -If you’re using an alt, please send me message identifying your main account.

    -There are currently no rules for roleclaiming, but I will put them in place if a massclaims begins. Besides, I would highly recommend against roleclaiming prematurely.

    -All forum rules apply here.

    In general, just avoid abusing loopholes and you’ll be fine. Moderator discretion is advised.

    To signup, please post "/in" in the thread. When I see your post, I will add you to the player list and give your post a hype train, indicating that you are in the game.

    Alternatively, if you wish to sign up as a replacement, please type "/in replacement." Any players that wish to join after the player list has been filled up will be added to the replacement queue.

    Here are a few guides that can help out any new players (or returning players hoping to get better at the game). I'll update this section as I find more guides.
