Lets see if we have interest here.

The catch of this game is that I will freely advise people in a way that tries extremely hard not to give away answers. You can pm me at any time and ask what I think you should claim or what I think someones claim indicates and I will answer in a way that hopefully leads to you finding the answer yourself.

This should not be considered a super competitive game and is more for learning how to analyze situations better. It probably is not ideal for Han/Chris/Blade

If people are interested Ill run it. If not no big deal.

Probably want at least... 13 people or so.

isn't Sheep doing a game for newbies, too? Because this sounds like it's for the same audience, particularly someone like me (hence I would be interested).

This could either be really fun, go awfully, or both. I'll say a tentative no but if there's enough interest and you need a co-host for votals and all I'm up for that.

If you were to hold this game a month and a half from now I'd legit consider playing

But not now.

It'd basically be putting this game/idea completely out of the picture. Unless there's a viable idea for assistance in my game, but that'd probably involve having a vet for each player which I feel may be difficult to organise.

I'm basically planning a simple game designed to try and get newer players into Mafia, preferably with a bunch who've not played at all or much before. I'll be looking on CE for some who're completely new and there's a few signed up already. Not sure if I'd be able to work with a gimmick like this or it'd be the best way to introduce those completely unfamiliar with it.

I have run multiple successful two-players-per-slot games in the past, and making sure newbies are paired with vets is easy.

However, I don't really recommend it for what you have in mind. I have a hunch it would give the vets too much influence in the game itself unless there are rules in place to limit their in topic activity (which would force them into a backseat/helper role for the newbies, but is super awkward and not really worth imo)

Exactly, I'm worried about it just becoming something where the noobs just follow their vet and learn very little about the game in the process. I think it'd be best if it's just a normal game with more new players, as long as there's several vets playing as well.

See, I get the setup of the game and consider myself versed in the ABCs of Mafia but nothing more. I know the rules, what standard roles do, and... that's pretty much it. Being in the fray I simply chalk up to not having the EXP. That's only fixable by playing more and not doing braindead things like modkilling myself to prove to town that I'm legit. Still sorry about that >_>

So either way, I want to have a game where I can learn better. The only way to improve is to do.

Right. Just pointing out it's not impossible if you really want to.

Sheep, looks like a lot of people are out right now. Why dont you run your game first, see if you can get new people in, then after that we can try this as a follow up.

Chris, totally appreciate the help. You are welcome to do that when we run this at some point.

Sounds decent, actually. This could be a good followup. My game is below, for anyone with access to the Forum Mafia board. If you want to join and don't have it, I think you may be able to request access, or you could shoot Lolo/God a PM.

Honestly I don't think this will really work the way you want it to, unless the whole bit about encouraging people to learn how to analyze stuff is just a cover story and your true intention is just to fuck with people, in which case it will work just fine. If I were playing something like this, my thought process would be pretty much non-stop built on how I can try to meta your advice not just to me but also what I believe you're saying to other people. It pretty much just becomes a host meta marathon with a lot less emphasis on anything applicable to more conventional mafia, and I don't think b8 really needs further encouragement to go nuts meta'ing all kinds of random stuff - this community is already pretty fond of doing it!

Is this going to be the next mafia game or a side game?

Is GoT done or almost done? I can't check the topic because I'm avoiding all things GoT until the series is done being made.

We have like 400 posts left in this one, so this is now the social.

Also is anyone interested in a Halloween mafia? I have a flavour that I wanted to reboot that I have run every year for the 3 or 4 years. I know I am not next in line and I think my Illuminati mafia has been shelves for now.

Actually would anyone be interested in a community collaboration on it, so I could run it on a few different site? Maybe show some sites a really crazy gfaqs game lol.
