The power of a green check by a cop is even bigger than having a couple non-cop JOATs, and the numbers need to really be skewed toward town to compensate for lack of any green check. It may be that the least anti-town / most pro-town experimental champs setup, which is this game, is still wolf-sided. Not to detract from the excellent play by the mafia thus far...

    Open Signups

    On the front page top half are open mafia signups titled "Open Signups."

    Although the focus of this site is Mafia, it promotes other games, as well. For example, Thingyman is starting an Olympics where some of these other games can be enjoyed on this site.

    I've sponsored some non-Mafia games before, and it was hard to get the visibility necessary to promote these games properly, because I was told only Mafia games are allowed on the "Open Signups" list.

    So I am proposing that the front half of the front page be reformatted to have two such sections, with the present open signups section being on top and re-labeled from "Open Signups" to "Open Mafia Signups." The second section would be right below it and labeled "Open Non-Mafia Signups." This second section would have the same format as what we have now, and it would be up to the host to include the name of the game in the first words of the description (SHEEP, Secret Hitler, etc.).

    This would allow folks to see at a glance just how much this site has to offer, and that it's not just about Mafia (though that will always remain the primary focus as it should be).

    The beauty of this setup is that just as a Cop is an exception to the rule of Town being an uninformed majority, giving each Goon only half the puzzle pieces is an exception to the rule of Mafia being an informed minority, which is more than made up for by having an otherwise town-crushing 9:4 ratio from the get-go. And when half the Mafia remain, they are united into a normal situation of full information.

    Also, everyone, please send me a message on Discord ONLY if your Discord handle is not immediately obvious. This is so I have an additional tool by which to reach you in the event that your substitution is imminent for under-participation.

    2x Mafia Goon

    town seems a bit underpowered maybe but we’ll see
    maybe add a goon, take out 2 vanilla townies and replace one of them with a cop or something like that?
    My default is that any setup with no cop is presumed wolf-sided unless the numbers are really out of whack, such is the case here. However, your proposed setup does not even include any kind of investigative or informative roles other than one that, when outed, doubles town carnage. So even though 82% of the players are Town in your setup, I don't see Town winning more than 1 in 3 of these games. Particularly since they have a double nightkill with the Poisoner.

    I'd keep the numbers as is, but tweak as follows:
    9x Vanilla Town
    2x Town Lover
    1x Town Healer (odd)
    1x Town Healer (even)
    1x Town Alignment Cop with n0 random town peek
    1x Mafia Poisoner
    2x Mafia Goon

    That would give Town a fighting chance, I think.

    Correction: each player stack is reset to 400 at the start of each hand so each game will go the distance and take the full amount of time actually. This is because the dynamics of a hand change depending on the stack to pot ratio. The net gain or loss from each hand would be tabulated as normal.

  24. Strategy Heads-Up SKILLED No Limit Poker Tournament Sign-Ups

    Heads-Up SKILLED No Limit Holdem Poker Tournament -- June 9, 16, and 23


    This is No-Limit Holdem with most of the luck removed from the equation, making the result almost exclusively based on skill.

    Four players compete in 3 games of 30 hands with blinds of 1/2. The players start every hand with 400 chips each.

    --Round 1 - Tue Jun 9 from 4pm ET to 5:30pm ET
    ----Game 1: Player 1A vs. Player 3B.
    ----Game 2: Player 2A vs. Player 4B.
    --Round 2 - Tue Jun 16 from 4pm ET to 5:30pm ET
    ----Game 3: Player 1A vs. Player 2B.
    ----Game 4: Player 4A vs. Player 3B.
    --Round 3 - Tue Jun 23 from 4pm ET to 5:30pm ET
    ----Game 5: Player 1A vs. Player 4B.
    ----Game 6: Player 3A vs. Player 2B.

    In each round, 30 decks of cards are randomized. The two "A" players are each dealt identical hole cards, and the two "B" players are also each dealt identical hole cards. Both games of each round have identical flops, turns, and rivers, if applicable. A game ends after 30 hands.

    The score of each player is determined as follows: First, the difference in chips between the "A" players is calculated after each hand. The sum of those 30 differences constitutes the score for each of the "A" players. One player will have a positive score, and the other will have a negative score. That process is identical for the "B" players. This entire process is repeated in rounds 2 and 3. The sum of those three sums is the final score. The player with the highest final score wins the tournament.

    The scoring is done this way because you should be judged not by the cards you get, but how much more effectively you made money with good hands than another player with those same good hands, and also by how much more effectively you saved money with bad hands than another player with those same bad hands.

    This is a labor-intensive process for the host, so at this time only 4 players will be accepted. Please know what your'e doing when it comes to heads-up no limit holdem before signing up.

    I will randomize all 90 decks in advance, having the first 9 cards of each deck ready at my fingers to copy and paste into the correct discord window.

    In each game, there is:
    --a private discord chat for the "A" players that is used strictly for me to inform them of their hole cards
    --a private discord chat for the "B" players that is used strictly for me to inform them of their hole cards
    --a private discord chat for games 1, 3, and 5 that is used for players to state their actions in turn and for community cards to be revealed as needed
    --a private discord chat for games 2, 4, and 6 that is used for players to state their actions in turn and for community cards to be revealed as needed

    When both pairs of players are done with hand 1, we go on to hand 2, and so on. I expect the process to take 90 minutes per round. Key hands will be posted via a link to an animated hand replayer.

    If this is popular, I'll run another one even bigger in the near future.

    I did 3 rands on random.org and here are the results:

    Town/Town = 5 pairs
    Town/Mafia = 2 pairs

    I guess the takeaway is that Town should really try to lynch any two players who are TR-ing each other a bit too much--the chances are excellent that you knock out half the Mafia in one lynch.

    You get to start AND finish day when most people are free (not at work/school/etc)
    Yeah but then you go from a situation at 9am ET where the vast majority of the players of MU are awake to a situation at 8pm ET (or even 7pm ET) where its the wee hours of the morning for a substantial chunk of folks.

    Plus, you don't need to be awake at SOD/EOD to do well in Mafia, anyway. Your vote is your vote. But if we accept the premise that it's better to be around at EOD than not to be around at EOD, 9am ET is the better option.

    Quote Originally Posted by SebastainMatthews (#27)
    Hi Zork, I am potentially interested in this game, but I have a few questions for you!

    1) I respectfully must inquire as to why the end of day phase is at 9:00 in the morning? I regret to inform you that this may result in some problematic activity issues near the end of the day phase. I know you are a host of immaculate standards, and therefore would certainly take the end of day time into consideration, and this has to just be an oversight, as the end of day times will be problematic for a large portion of your possible playerbase for this game to fill.
    I always run 36/12 so I'm experimenting with 48/24 to see how it helps with substantive posting, which I always appreciate seeing from the players in my games. Games on here and 2+2 and other sites usually start at 7, 8, or 9am ET, so a 48/24 schedule would necessarily mean that EOD falls at the same time. Folks should be awake for that across most of the globe. Americans who sleep in, especially West Coasters, probably not so much. Eastern Europeans have had to adopt to typical EODs for years, so it's OK by me to spread that unavoidable load around a bit.

    Thank you for thinking I have immaculate standards. I really do try, because I used to be a really crappy host. But I worked really hard to improve and keep everything together to give everyone a fun experience. I still fall on my face--the last game I ran was not enjoyed very much. It was my first bastard game, and I went overboard on the bastardity, if you will. So I'm definitely sticking to my wheelhouse going forward, which is open, creative rolesets that usually are PR-heavy but not always, as is the case with this game.

    Quote Originally Posted by SebastainMatthews (#27)
    2) I must admit to some mild apprehension about the aspect of this setup that means the wolves are unaware of each other. Mafia, at the core of the game we play so earnestly, is about the uninformed majority versus the informed minority. This highly original, but potentially problematic tweak to that formula, means that the setup is the uninformed versus the uninformed, and I fear that's going to result in the game not actually feeling like Mafia. I trust that a host with your sufficient creativity can find a way to work around this flaw, so that the game has more appeal, and possibly fills.

    3) The mild apprehension that crosses my brow in the previous question is multiplied elevenfold when my eyes happen upon the mechanics subsection. My fear is that the players that sign up for this game will not have the requisite open-mindedness required to fully comprehend the mechanics you have so elegantly crafted. There is also the concern that mafioso turning their gun upon each other may, in fact, lessen the enjoyment that players could have in a game, as your teammates are your friends, and the emotional toll could be truly devastating. I cannot in good conscience advocate the murder of your friends in the night, as that is diametrically opposed to the guiding principles of Mafia, which I fear in your haste to bring your creative vision to your eager player base, you have lost sight of slightly - that is, that mafia is a game between an uninformed, and informed faction.
    I kind of answered this for the most part in an earlier post in this thread. The gist of it is that each of the 4 goons knows half the team, and that the other half is divided between a goon who is known by someone you know and a goon who knows that you are a goon. So you can pick up tells of who the team is by paying attention to who is hard town reading you and who is your town-read town-reading. It's still a mostly informed minority, having to exercise under-used gray matter (apologies to Hercule Poirot) to get the total picture.

    Further reducing the risk of mafia-on-mafia violence is the fact that Goons are not eligible to be given any points by themselves and the one who knows they are a Goon. The Town do not have any such protection. And even if a Goon gets lynched, this risk is balanced by the structure being 9:4 instead of the far more standard 10:3. The incomplete information and risk of Mafia night-killing Mafia are balanced by this extremely substantial numbers variation from 10:3 to 9:4.

    Quote Originally Posted by SebastainMatthews (#27)

However, I fear that the asynchronous nature of forum mafia is inherently problematic in terms of dictating precisely when a player must participate. Players must have the ability to play on their own terms, as that is an unalienable tenant of freedom, which I must assume you are a proponent of, being a proud Australian such as myself. May I respectfully offer a compromise of raising the minimum requirements, instead, so that sufficient activity is still mustered, but it occurs in more organic fashion, increasing enjoyment of the players exponentially. May I recommend a nice, round number, that is larger than 18, but easier for the average player to recall off the top of their head?
    Well it would just be easier to get the 18 posts out of the way well before you are up against any kind of deadline, posting on your terms on a schedule convenient to you and your time zone. By "you" I mean any player. Freedom is important to me, too. I do not mean to insist that players must post in each of the four 12-hour sections of the 48-hour day. I simply indicate those as checkpoints by which the decision whether to sub a player out can be made objectively. I never did understand why players seem to hold other players accountable for "slanking" when really it's just that they're sleeping or at work. I guess some of it is just a convenient excuse for Mafia to latch onto as they push a mislynch, especially when trying to maj one who is AFK for NAI reasons.

    I appreciate your agreement with me. I don't mean to imply that those kinds of posts are unwelcome in my game. I've done all those things. Those posts are perfectly fine. The ONLY caveat is that they do not count to the magic number. Post substantively enough, and you can litter the thread with additional fluff to your heart's content as long as you don't go to an extreme that annoys everybody.

    Outstanding conversation-starter. I wonder who you are. Un-outed alts are discouraged but not prohibited.

    Mafia was a game I played on the computer, so when I saw the blinking cursor asking for what username to choose, I thought back to the very first game that grabbed my attention also as a thinking game on the computer, and that was in 1985 on my Commodore 64 -- Zork was born.

    I don't even really want to play Zork again. It was really hard for a 13 year old. I'm sure it influenced Myst judging by the similarities, though light-years advanced technologically.

    Mafia being just letters on a white screen but filled with such rich strategy and cunning really takes the Zork game to a whole other level, but the homage to Infocom remains.

    I know how to pronounce Brisbane correctly because I overheard an Aussie say that word as we were about to land in Sydney. This should count for something.

    No, no, it was Melbourne at Adelaide, and I didn't bother shouting at the referee because he couldn't hear me.

The power of a green check by a cop is even bigger than having a couple non-cop JOATs, and the numbers need to really be skewed toward town to compensate for lack of any green check. It may be that the least anti-town / most pro-town experimental champs setup, which is this game, is still wolf-sided. Not to detract from the excellent play by the mafia thus far...

    I live in Texas. The only other country I have visited is Australia. This was for 26 days in 1989. I was sick on my back in bed for a good 12 or so of those 26 days. I had a front row seat at the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra to hear Beethoven's 9th Symphony with some awesome singing by the way. I was 17 years old. I flew into Sydney directly from Los Angeles and got there 2 days later. Then I took Ansett airlines to Adelaide. While I was there the pilots went on strike (domestic only). So I took a bus from Adelaide to Sydney via Broken Hill. I got to see the Southern Cross on that bus ride. I never would have seen it but for the pilot's strike.

    I need to go back to Australia. I miss it.

    I flew an Australian flag next to the U.S. flag outside my house for my entire senior year of high school.

    This should count for something, like honorary ANZAC status or something. I know how to waltz Matilda. I've had literal shrimp on the barbie. I had kangaroo/beef casserole. Let me in this game dammit lol.

    P.S.: I love Lord of the Rings. I read the series 3 times. The motion pictures were filmed in New Zealand. Need I say more lol...

    I wouldn't say that about Apoc. He has tried just about everything already. It's OK to like what you like. These mechanics are just too far out for him, probably. It's OK.
