A major epoch of MafiaScum history. It happened around June 26th, 2003, and the forums remained down until about July 11th, 2003. Most everything from March 18th, 2003 on was lost, including Mini Games 29-43, as well as large portions of Mini Games 26-28. Some games running when The Crash occurred died, while others (London Mafia 1 and Intrigue Mafia in particular) were resurrected and played to completion. For many years, these pre-crash games were only accessible through a separate archive board, but were integrated into the main board in 2012 by Kison.
There had been two minor crashes previously; one lost one day's worth of data and the other lost a little more, but was early enough in the life of MafiaScum that very few posts/games were affected.
