The Bus Driver is a [[manipulative]] role which essentially switches the places of its [[targets]]! Anyone targeting Player A will have their [[night action]] resolve on Player B, and vice-versa. If you really want to get into the heads of your players, definitely consider this role! This is usually, though not exclusively, found as a [[Town]] role on mafiascum.net. Beware, however, as many moderators consider this role to be a [[negative utility]].
+
The Cop is an [[investigative]] role which may select a player during the [[night|night phase]]. It will learn the [[alignment]] of its [[target]]. This iteration is considered [[normal game|normal]] on mafiascum.net. The cop is not infallible, however! Some roles like [[miller]] and [[godfather]] may lead to false results, and an [[ascetic]] modifier leaves the cop unable to get a result. There are also variations on the role, like "Insane" or "Paranoid", which may render the cops results unreliable by nature.

This is a [[semi-open]] [[Large open setup]] of unknown origins. It allows for 14 players and has players bid for their roles! That's right, you get your alignment first, and get to basically buy what role you desire! The catch? Well if someone beats you in the [[draft]] and you choose the same role they did, you become [[Vanilla]]. [[Townies]] and [[Mafia]] are vying for the same roles, so make sure to be first in the draft. In theory, this is a very straight forward setup. In practice, well why not run one and find out!

The largest wiki for the Game of Mafia on the web.
We have a total of 4,574 articles.

About Mafia...

MainPage-IntroductionPic.png
"In the peaceful Sicilian village of Salem, a dark presence is about to make itself known. For years, the family based crime organization known as the Mafia has been establishing itself in the foundation of the community. Until now, the naive citizens have been unaware of the evil among them. Tonight, however, the Mafia makes its move. Tonight, someone will die, and until the Mafia has eliminated all opposition, the innocent will continue to die. Unless, of course, the Mafia is destroyed first..."

The above is a typical opening for the game called Mafia (Also known as "Werewolves of Miller's Hollow" or "Town of Salem"). The game can be played by an indeterminate group of people, each playing the role of either a murdering Mafia member or an innocent townsperson, along with a game moderator. At the beginning of the game, Night falls, and the Mafia family members become aware of each other (by communication from the moderator). They then choose a victim, and the moderator announces the death scene. When Day breaks, the town must try to weed out the evil by eliminating someone they suspect to be mafia.

The game of Mafia (in Meat World) is usually run with playing cards representing the possible roles in the game. The moderator secretly distributes the cards to the players, then has everyone put their head down/close their eyes. During the Night, the moderator "wakes up" the mafia, and they silently choose a victim. During the Day, everyone discusses, argues, swears, and eventually votes for someone to eliminate. The cycle repeats until the endgame.

MafiaScum, however, is devoted to the online version of the game. The history of mafiascum.net can be traced back to a game moderated by mith in August 2000 on the Grey Labyrinth, a puzzle website. Due to the success and growth of the game on the GL, mith started mafiascum.net as a dedicated forum in March 2002. Online Mafia has the potential for more strategy and subtlety because it removes most of the possibility for cheating and provides players with a chance to form suspicion based on logic and voting patterns instead of facial expression. It also has the potential for just as many (if not more) laughs, because the players can act however they like, no matter how shy they might be in real life.

For more information on the game check out this article: Game of Mafia

Getting Started...

MafiaWiki Banner.jpg
To get yourself into a game the first thing you will have to do is go to our forum. You need to register an account with us in order to do almost anything, the link to register is in the top right corner of the index-page. Please be aware that to register an account you will need a valid e-mail address, as it is required to try and filter out a few of those darn Chinese bots.
All of our sign-up threads for games are found in the Queue subforum. To join a game, post something along the lines of "/in" in its signup thread. You will be assigned to a player list, and when the list is full, you will be instructed further on where to go and what to do. If you're new to the site, we don't recommend joining a lot of games at once in case you lose interest and flake out of all of them later on. If you decide that you want to abandon a sign-up list before you are assigned to a game, post "/out".
For more details and information please read this guide: Quick Guide to Mafiascum

Featured role...

T-watcher2.png
This month's featured role is the Cop!

The Cop is an investigative role which may select a player during the night phase. It will learn the alignment of its target. This iteration is considered normal on mafiascum.net. The cop is not infallible, however! Some roles like miller and godfather may lead to false results, and an ascetic modifier leaves the cop unable to get a result. There are also variations on the role, like "Insane" or "Paranoid", which may render the cops results unreliable by nature.

This is a classic role in Mafia games and thus, it is this month's feature!

Featured setup...

Strawberry Mafia.jpg
This month's featured setup is Strawberry Mafia!

This is an open mini setup made by Fiasco and mith. Strawberry Mafia is essentially Vanilla Mafia with a twist, they've added this month's Featured Role, the Cop! This sounds like it should give Town the upper hand, but in play tests the Mafia have reigned victorious more times than not.
