For those of you who haven’t played Mafia yet, you’re in luck. It’s easy to learn and a lot of fun for people of all ages.
There are two teams, Mafia and Civilians. And there are two phases, day and night. The civilians win if they eliminate all the mafia players and the mafia win if they outnumber the civilian players.
First, choose someone to be the narrator. The narrator hands out the cards and may either randomly assign roles or may choose what role each player gets.
The narrator then tells everyone to go to sleep. All players lower their heads and close their eyes as to not see what happens next. TheMafia Online Game narrator then tells the mafia players to wake up. Those players that drew the mafia cards raise their heads quietly and see who else is on their team. The narrator then asks the mafia to point to the player they want to kill. The mafia quietly agree to and point to the player they wish to kill and after the narrator acknowledges their target, the narrator asks the mafia to go to sleep.
The narrator tells everyone to wake up. The narrator then tells the group, by name, the player that was killed by the mafia. The narrator is encouraged to be creative and make a compelling story line for the players to follow. The remaining players then have to debate who they think the mafia are. The mafia will act, bluff, lie, and pretend not to be the mafia as not to get caught. Everyone votes for one player to “lynch” or kick out of town. That player is eliminated and it’s up to the narrator if he/she wants to disclose that player’s role.
The night phase comes again and the mafia game keeps going until there are no mafia left or the mafia outnumber the civilians.
