    Hello all.

    This is signups for the fifth game.

    [​IMG]

    For the newbies reading this thread, Mafia is relatively simple in theory. The dynamics of human behavior are what makes it so interesting.

    For our Veterans, I'm throwing you some curveballs in this one. Our game will be partly based on the classic Fire & Ice Open Setup. In this case, it'll be a Closed Setup, meaning no one will know which roles will be used in this game. Keeping with the essence of this game, if Fire Mafia and Ice Mafia attempt to kill the same person, their elementally-charged blasts will cancel one another out.

    Furthermore, each and every one of you will be armed with one "[​IMG]," which will give you mysterious and clever Day-abilities that can be used only once during the game. To use whenever you wish, simply post "Activate: Name of Power."

    Each Vote Count will be themed in Fire and Ice elements. Neighborhoods are possible. Also, Role PMs will get a different look.

    Absolutely everyone is welcome to join the party. If you'd like to play, please, by all means, sign up here! :D:smiliehug:

    It's definitely a game, and a very fun one at that. :D

    With Mafia, it's divided into teams. You've got the members of the Town, which are the uninformed majority, but they don't know who the Mafia are, or who the other Townies are either. The Mafia, on the other hand, are the informed minority. They know who's on their team, and they use their cleverness to manipulate the Town so they kill each other off.

    The Town wins if it finds and kills the Mafia. The Mafia wins if its numbers equal or surpass that of the Town's. :D

    It's an excellent, strategic mind-game.

    Fuller Brush Men vs. DMV Clerks vs. Facebook Engineers

    Would you like to join the party, House? I think you would like how stimulating the mental aspects of the game are. :D
