[Game 1] FRC Mafia 4: Popcorn Mafia


  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.
  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 Do not quote/screenshot private host messages.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!


  • 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.


  • There is no voting in this game. The gun-bearer takes the place of a 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 `@orangeandblack5 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.

  • What is Forum Mafia?
    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 .
  • This is very different from the previous two games!
    Indeed! Popcorn Mafia is a fun and fast variant, and is one of my personal favorite FM games to play.
  • I’m still confused.
    Feel free to ask me any and all questions you may have!


The Mafia have been added to their chat. The game will begin when they have selected a gun-bearer.

You may talk in the meantime.


Quick, nobody give @GoalkeeperBoss the gun or the game will be over in an hour :joy:


I guess only mike wanted to confirm, whatever

@gellnick has a gun, phase 1 begins


Why hello there. @GoalkeeperBoss Are you Mafia?


Oh wait I’m Town? Come on. I was hoping for some interesting things in terms of being Mafia.

Hmmm. Who


If I was mafia I wouldn’t have given u the gun


Quick! Kill @gellnick, he’s obviously cheating! /s


I doubt that. Either way I’m thinking @EricKline or @Squirrel2412. Although @Ian4467 has a tendency to be Mafia


I’ve already gotten death threats from u, why would I hand u a gun?


Uhh… To make it look like you’re not the Mafia?


The @GoalkeeperBoss - @gellnick rivalry is reaching new heights…


You’re trying to pull a @Squirrel2412 aren’t you?


@quarky @LordPeaches @Ian4467 @Shelby_Lamp @EricH @Squirrel2412 nothing from y’all so far… :thinking:


Hi y’all, just woke up.

Much confusion plz explain my friend


Also, @EricKline isn’t playing this game.


Look at last game. You tried to pull a @Squirrel2412 with @Goalkeeperboss.


Ah, that’s what you mean. Otherwise known as the “hey here’s a Mafia now no murder me plz” strategy.

Also, @gellnick, why are you suspicious of me?


I’m thinking we have no solid proof on anyone yet, given that four people total have responded


In my defense (and that of the other ppl), it’s 8:29 pacific time rn, and the thread was posted at 5:04 our time.

But, yes, you are correct that we don’t have that much solid proof.
