Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.

Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.

What follows is a message from Thingyman...

Invitation to The Mafia Championship Season 3

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the year again http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/smile.gif

I am making this post with the hopes that your community would be interested in participating in Season 3 of the Mafia Championship. It will be bigger and more epic than ever before.

This year we’re expanding once again; 136 communities will be invited to participate, making this not only the biggest Mafia event ever, but also the largest cross-forum event in the history of the Internet. We’ve also moved the venue to Mafia Universe, a new site created with the purpose of enhancing the player experience, utilizing features such as fully automated games, automated/requestable vote counters, private threads, bookmarking functions, etc.

Are you interested?

As always, how you decide your representative is completely up to you. To guarantee your community a spot in Season 3 of the Mafia Championship, I will need to know of your community's interest within the next week (until April 4th). Following this, you will have an additional two weeks to decide your nominee (until April 18th). Additionally, it would be a very good idea to also name an alternate.

Remember that your representative needs to be prepared to deal with a lot of activity. Expect at least upwards of 500 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. The representative needs to not only be able to read all this, but should also at least be able to manage making 10+ posts per day phase.

Season 3 Specifics

• 136 different communities are invited to participate. If some decline the invitation, I may opt to allow larger communities an additional nominee.
• 8 Qualifying Games will be played with 17 players each.
• 2 players advance to the Finale Game from each game based on post-game votes.
• 1 Wildcard Game will be played (Wildcards are decided by a jury consisting of former finalists), determining the 17th and final spot in the Finale. Runner-ups in this game will be first in line to replace any finalists who may have to drop out.

Season 3 Timeline & Important Dates

The first Qualifying Game is set to start April 25th. Additional games will take place in the 1-3 months following. I will create a Doodle and find out the best times to start the various games so that preferably everyone gets to play during a time that suits them well.

In addition to this, it is also a priority to ensure as much as possible that all the players in any given game has no prior history of playing with each other to ensure a level playing field (but I cannot 100% guarantee that this won’t happen).

Season 3 Game Design & Setup

For each season, we’ve changed it up. This time, we’re doing something new again!

The setup is called Matrix12 and is inspired by mafiascum’s popular Matrix6 setup, if any of you are familiar with that. In short, the concept is that there are 12 different possible setups and the host randomizes which one is used. The players know what setups are available, but not which one will be used!

More on the setup here: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/thread...son-3-Format%29

Regarding lynch mechanics: There will be a deadline each day phase, and the person with the most votes at the end of the day is lynched, unless a majority has already been reached before then, in which case the day ends prematurely.

Days will last 36 hours and nights 12 hours, meaning 48 hours (2 days) per game day. With one exception: The weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) will be one game day (so day will be 60 hours and night 12 hours on weekends).

I could play if the overwhelming majority agreed with it. Otherwise, I already play in regular games on MU and I don't think I'm good enough to represent the site in the big leagues haha. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/blush.gif

My personal choices would be, based on skill and/or awesomeness:

plasmid
yuiop
Jay Gold
Dr.SaaB

Plas can break a game wide open through its mechanics via the optimal strategy, Saab is extremely good with the numbers and logic, yuiop is super-duper persuasive and, using Pacific Fim as an example, was extremely perceptive to things that I didn't even pick up on; Jay may not be the best player (http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/tongue.gif http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/popcorn.gif) but he loves playing and he makes whatever game he plays fun by his presence.

An honorary mention to Maurice as one of the best players MM has ever had, who I am not nominating officially since he just came back this last week after a four year absence and probably would be a bit rusty haha. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/lol.gif

Nana, can we have a shortlist of everybody who's already played and isn't eligible? I know you, FT, Vine, GM, and CK played, but I feel like I'm missing one or two players from Season 2 especially.
