FRC Mafia: June Gloom POPCORN Mafia

In Southern California, there is a weather phenomenon that happens around this time of year. The skies are cloudy all morning, maybe a little bit of the afternoon, and then the sun breaks out. Sounds about like how the CD Mafia community is on hearing that the next official game, M10[link] won’t be until August.

Well… Here’s the sun!

June Gloom Popcorn Mafia

is open for signups!

Signups will close no earlier than 2019-06-20T03:00:00Z, and will stay open after that as long as it takes to get a game (or several) together.

Rules

  1. Follow the Chief Delphi forum rules.
  2. Be respectful to the hosts and your fellow players.
  3. Don’t be inactive . If you do not post meaningfully in any given phase, you will be prodded. Receiving two prods or failing to respond to a prod within 12 hours will result in your removal from the game. This will be a special point of emphasis this game.
  4. Do not quote/screenshot private host messages. They’re private for a reason.
  5. Don’t throw the game. Always play with the intent of helping your faction win.
  6. No editing or deleting posts for any reason without express moderator permission.
  7. No posting after majority is reached or at night. I can’t lock the thread, so I’m relying on you all to just follow this rule and not post. Repeated or egregious failure to comply will result in your removal from the game.
  8. Do not discuss the game outside of the game. Anywhere. It’s not worth it.
  9. It’s a game - have fun!

Gameplay

  • This game is played without day and night cycles.
  • Before the game starts, the Mafia must elect one Town player to be the gun-bearer .
  • That player has 24 hours to shoot another player. Discussion will take place during this time.
  • If they do not shoot another player within these 24 hours the gun-bearer will die and the gun will go back to the Mafia. The Mafia will then be given 12 hours to choose a new gun-bearer . Discussion will still take place during this time.
  • The gun-bearer is always announced and confirmed as a member of the Town.
  • The Mafia wins when the number of living Mafia members equal or exceed the number of living townies.
  • The Town wins when all Mafia players are dead.
  • The Mafia will talk through a PM chain I create. They may talk at any time.

Eliminations

  • There is no voting in this game. The gun-bearer takes the place of an elimination.
  • The gun-bearer must shoot publicly in the game thread by saying /shoot [player] , bolded and on its own line. You should also ping me by typing @EricH in the same post.
  • If the gun-bearer hits a member of the Mafia, they keep the gun, a new 24-hour phase begins, and they may shoot again.
  • If the gun-bearer hits a member of the Town, the gun-bearer dies, a new 24-hour phase begins, and the targeted townie becomes the new gun-bearer .
  • If a player has been shot, stop posting until I can end that phase and start the next one.

Rolelist

The rolelist will be determined before the game starts. It may be re-sized depending on expressed interest. As such, joining here does not guarantee a spot in the game - you may be made a backup instead. Slots will be given on a first-come first-served basis.

F.A.Q.

  • What is Forum Mafia?
    In case you missed the link at the top, here is a short guide from Mafia Universe describing the basics of Forum Mafia. In short, it is a variation of the party game Mafia (also known as Werewolf) that has been adapted to be played on forums.
  • What does _______ mean?
    There is a great glossary of various Mafia terms that may be used on the Mafia Universe Wiki 2.
  • This is very different from the previous two games!
    Indeed! Popcorn Mafia is a fun and fast variant that will allow us to sneak a couple runs in before M10.
  • I’m still confused.
    Feel free to ask me any and all questions you may have!

I’m suddenly VERY glad that I decided to track everything tagged with “Mafia”…
Thanks @EricH!
Also, I’m gone the first week of July, so I may miss the end of the game… Chances are, I’ll be dead before then…

I was wondering at the speed of response there…

I have a tracker too but I’m not sure it’s currently operational.

You’re the Tracker? Again?

I’d like to play; when does it start?

What happened to falling anvils?

Anyways, this is normal popcorn Mafia right? No PR’s?

Maybe we need to put the link in a few other threads? Seems like we’re having trouble getting players

The target is next weekend if enough players are in. Can’t make this round? I’m looking at July for another run.

No PRs. I mean, other than modkill, but that’s a standard Mafia role. (Hmmm… Is @GoalkeeperBoss a PR?)

I can’t play this one because I have an internship that i am going to be at and my parents want me to be on the computer less over the summer

maybe the july one tho not sure

Work hard, learn a lot. Now I’m curious where you’re interning…

Since I won’t be playing, there won’t be any PR’s

A reminder that the earliest poll close is tomorrow evening. I’ll probably leave it up for another day or two after that, as 9 players is a little low for my liking, but if that’s what it is then that’s what it is.

You can run a 9p popcorn, or change the game to some other 9p setup
