Setup Size:
  • Up to 34
Setup Type:

Rad Idea Mafia is a semi-open setup, based on the Idea Mafia series (in particular, Great Idea Mafia), which introduces a few new roles, and, like the other Idea Mafia games, is good for removing (at least partially) the random voting stages and adding WIFOM.

Each player is dealt 3 cards, and must choose one card to represent their alignment in the game, a second, different card to represent their role, and, if a valid setup is created between the game's players, the remaining card will be publicly discarded at the start of the game.

A valid setup is defined as having both a majority of players picking Town alignments and at least one player picking one of the factional scum alignments.


Note that cards 95 to 104 have an alignment of ??. Before the game, the moderator should randomly determine for each card whether it is Alien or Replicant. Alternatively, the mod can determine another method for picking those cards' alignment. In this case, the method used, and their results (if applicable), should be disclosed to the players.

Possibly Confusing Setup-Specific Things

  • Unless the game is specifically specified as Bastard, Innocent Child can only be selected as a Role of a Town-aligned card is selected as Alignemnt.
  • Any addition or removal of abilities or modifiers, and any vannillaization or treestumping takes place at the start of the next Day.
  • If there is only one Mason, that player is basically a named player.
  • One-Night roles activate only on the first night on which they would be applicable (e.g. One-Night Honest Werewolves would investigate as innocent to Seers on the first night on which they are Seen, and guilty to Seers on future nights).
  • The Alien faction gets only one factional kill, but also has a one-shot no-reveal bloodsuck.
  • The Replicant faction gets only one factional kill, but also has a one-shot Private Message activated daykill and rolesteal (this stolen role can be used only once).
  • The Innocent Child may PM the Mod or inform them in-thread at any time to have the Mod reveal their innocence. If informed during Pre-game, the Mod reveals that player's innocence on the start of Day 1.
  • The Governor may post target in thread during Day, before or after elimination, or PM mod a list of governor targets to take effect if an elimination occurs on them.
  • The Cult One-Shot Recruiter may not recruit a Mafia, Werewolf, Alien, or Replicant player. Any player, however, is affected by Goo.
  • In modless Face-to-Face games, the Alien/Replicator cards will be made public knowledge before the cards are dealt.
  • No Elimination is always a valid option, even if other roles (e.g. Gladiator) or modifiers change eliminations.
  • Blocked or otherwise unusable shots are refunded. X-shot Bulletproof players are not told when or if their shots are used.
  • Alignment changes are resolved before investigation results are processed, which are resolved before vanillaization/treestumping. For example, if A (a Bloodhound) investigates B (a Serial Killer), B is Psychiatristed by C (turning B into a Townie), and D Treestumps A (removing A's investigative abilities), B will first become a Town player, then A will learn that B is a Town player, then A will become a treestump, but will still get the result on B.


  • Roles can assigned to players via the List Randomizer, or via dice tags in Private Topics.
  • Balance is explicitly not guaranteed. Duh.

Setup Design

The Great Idea Mafia should have ample information about the origins of the first Idea Mafia setup. After modding a few Idea Mafia games, JerryArr decided to build his own deck. This 104-card deck may also be used with other Idea Mafia games.
