Here is one suggestion : Instead of letting the godfather/brains/whatever be undetectable(or becomes a townie) to the spy, then how about letting the Mayor's position itself make the person untectable to the Spy?

That way the spy would have to act quick to see the role of the person becoming a mayor and for all candidates could be a subject to the Spy's abilities?

The problem is that the detective is not allowed to act until the first night. I really don't think I would be comfortable with that change becuase the whole point of the detective checking up on the mayor is to assure the townies that it is safe to trust the mayor so they can begin to organize.

Me too.. it can be reverse-mafia, or zombie mafia, Alien invasion (where the aliens are pod-people… scary!)
Pod-people you say?

Actually that doesn't sound like a bad idea. You could start a game with 1 infected. Every night he'd infect 1 person who gains the power to infect others as well. They spread would be exponential since their numbers would swell at the rate of 1-2-4-8 etc. In order to counter it we'd need to figure out some sort of mechanism for the townies to use to fight them.

That seems like the coolest thing ever

So there is interest for the pod people idea? Sounds good then. In order to make the game balanced though, we need to figure out some sort of ability for the town to have to use against the pod people. This type of game would be considerably different to the standard mafia game.
Those were my two cents.

Well I was referring to the zombie idea, but maybe that's tied in to the pod people?

zombies, pod people. It's the same concept. Pod people make more sense though because if you seen movies with those types, you'd see that they're capable of pretending to act like normal.

I was thinking of one where there was zombies, werewolfs and vampires but I'm afraid it might be to complicated.

Three sides? Well… if you could find a good structure then it's ok to try out.

Hmm… What about some rock paper scissor effect. 3 sides. Side A can only kill members of side B. B can kill C. and C can kill A.

Each side will start of with even numbers and are at war with each other. The winner is the one that can outnumber the reaming other two sides or become the sole survivor. It sounds like that the best thing to for your side is to kill all the players that you can kill but if you do so, there'll be no one left to kill the team that can kill you. I don't know how it would play out otherwise but it's a clever idea, don't you think?

I'm considering two maybe three scenarios but can't think of names for the elected roles.

'there is no “overkill” there is only “open fire” and “time to reload” rule #37
the things on my box are a dead squirell, a medal and a paper bag hat.

Yessss, the aliens are the good guys.

Actually! I was thinking of including a new role in that game, kinda similar to PP's…Kinda.

Telepathic
This alien can read minds! Unfortunately, he has no control over whose mind he reads!
As soon as you are PQed your role, you will be told the name and role of another Alien. The Alien I PQ you will be informed his role was told to you, but not who the Telepathic is. The person you are told can only be an alien, never a dinosaur, so you can completely trust this person.

So it's like two people who can trust each other completely. :o

I would like ot see more theme based mafia games, maybe we could have themes that come directly after each other, like a “carribean cruise” and the next one would be more “Lost” themed or something like that ?

Oh come on, even though you're not playing, you can still voice your opinion~

And I like that idea Gullas…

…I'll just find an obscure way to tie in Hark's game to mine. :D_b

hmmm how about :

“so when Harkovast finally got better after that horrible flue he had, Crocty got bored, REALLY bored so he decided to participate in the ‘Townston Times’ summer holiday contest. The first price was a fully prepared, luxury decorated Cruise ship….”

?

Or.

A cruise was just what hark needed after his soul was stolen by the evil monkeys. The whole town knew that hark was a very volital individual before his soul got stolen, so, to protect the innocents from getting lynched in one of Hark's delusions, they all joined him on the crew under captain Crocty.

Pfffff, cruise ship themed.
I'm totally going for the alien and dinosaur theme!

So,
“After Hark woke up, he flew to an alien planet and died and then aliens and dinosaurs fought!”



>_>

Hm, the cruise idea is interesting, I'd have a totally hard time thinking roles for that. Or maybe I could do a less surreal thingy to tie it in with…=w= We shall see.

One of my idea's (possible psychos in a research facility type place) could tie into hark's game.

'there is no “overkill” there is only “open fire” and “time to reload” rule #37
the things on my box are a dead squirell, a medal and a paper bag hat.

>XO I was just about to post an idea of a team out searching for the cure for Hark's disease.

I'd keep the dinosaurs as the bad guys.

): Now I'm gonna have to rewrite it.

that sounds like a good idea (and in my scenario hark's madness would only be mentioned in passing “…according to doctor threepman patient 202 ‘harkovast’ has started to hallucinate about monkeys…” ) I have a few other possible scenarios. my only problem is thinking of the names of the elected roles.
