I would, but I suppose it's bad for to have me in a game like this.  After all, I read your PMs.

And you should be ashamed. 

Really.

Added spatakani. Hoping for a few more, but we can run a quick and simple game with 9. I'll give it until tomorrow afternoon (and a few more bumps)

Got the game set up, so I'll be able to send out the roles tomorrow. At that time I'll be creating a thread in the Forum Games section, which I'll link to from here.

About 6 more hours to sign up and I'll start this game.

I'm scared. I like being scared. I'm in.

Crap... I'm going to regret this.

No you won't.
It's quite fun.
I was scared to try it at first too.

Why did I get the mental image that SQ was talking to a virgin in prison on prom night in this post?

Started a thread in Forum Games, but it's locked:

http://skepchick.org/skepticsguide/index.php/topic,17856.0.html

Roles will go out in 3 or 4 hours. There is still time to sign up.

When the game starts it will be played entirely in that thread, and there should be no discussion of the game in this thread.

Please confirm that you received your roles by PMing me, and the game will start once I have received all confirmations.

NM - Thanks for organising this.

I've been hovering around the Mafia bit for a while, trying to work out what the hell is going on in there, so appreciate a beginners game to entice me in.

Where's Funda's Seal of Approval when I need it? So you get a Bravo instead.

Thanks Dave. Hope you enjoy.

Looks like no one else is joining us, so I'll be sending out roles now.

After I send out all the roles and get confirmations I'll unlock the other thread, and we'll begin day one.

Please keep all discussions about the game in the other thread.

Send me a PM confirmation once you've received your role. Ask any further questions you may have in a PM to me.

I'd like to give it a shot. I've never played one of these games before, though. I guess i'll have to read the rules, huh?

Oops, looks like you guys already started? Oh well.

Grasp the safety pin with the index or middle finger,
remove using a pulling and twisting motion,
throw.

Unfortunately you just missed the sign ups for this game, but if there is someone who drops out you can be the replacement.

I think I posted links to the rules in the first post of this thread.

Crap! Missed out and I made this suggestion in the Werewolf Mafia thread  too. :'(

I think we need to pimp the mafia games elsewhere in the forums.  We are getting no too many veterans. I want fresh blood.  MOWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Quote from Skulker
Speaking as a Mafia Virgin, jumping in with a bunch of experienced players is rather intimidating. Have you considered hosting a Mafia 101 game for beginners periodically with simple roles and without themes just to get more people involved? Then pimping the hell out of it

Damn! Sorry skulker. I knew someone had suggested it, but couldn't remember exactly who. If I had known it was you I would have PMed you specifically. Threads been on the forum for about 4 days now, though.  :(

I have created a new game with a theme and a bit of a twist.
I want this to be for the N00bs (and/or the ones playing in the n00b mafia now).
I made it fairly simple but also threw in a few small twists to keep it interesting and hopefully to expose them to some variations of the game.
As soon as your game is over NM, I will post for signups.

PS - I have never been a mafia mod before so this might be a valuable learning experience for all of us.

Excellent!

By the way, I absolutely don't mind you chiming in in the current game, and I actually appreciate it.
