General Mafia theory
here we discuss specifics about how to play certain roles, what aspects of the game are most important, how to play a certain phase of the game, or for general questions about whether something is antitown or not.
Mafia General terms and acronyms.
Wifom-Wine in Front of Me-best exemplified by this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzaL8wiSjnM it's a game of "I know you did this, but you know that I know so You did that, but I know that so the actual answer is this, which isn't right because you did blah blah blah etc"
Softclaiming Hinting at a role without outrighting stating it. EG" i can protect"-hints at doc/protective, but doesn't outright say it.
Breadcrumbing Leaving hints in a post that you are a certain role/character. EG-Don't. Or else they'll lynch him. Can't count on ryker to save you every time." The capital letters spell out DOC aka doctor.
Hammer-The final vote on a lynch. If it takes 5 to lynch, the fifth vote is referred to as hammer. aka "someone hammer him"
[Mostly]Common Roles

RE: General Mafia theory
it also helps you to avoid pressure as scum.
what should our initial topic be?
RVS?A certain Role? the use of meta in a game?

RE: General Mafia theory
as a goon? PLay as a townie. scumhunt, but make townies look like scum and get a mislynch. use your NK effective, don't take out power players who would have a doc protect on them but take out the small guys to help you wincon. thats the basics

RE: General Mafia theory
so I suppose it would be helpful for our ragtag group of mafia degenerates if I started by talking about setup balancing and different roles eh?

Jailer, depends on the  situation. I'd use it as  a protective mainly, but there are situations when you could use it as a roleblock. You're on your own as a VIG. shoot inactives or scummy people.

personally, it depends on the context. If they've got a good reason for doing it, then I can let it slide.

AHA! It's the game which actually promotes using WIFOM's! Brilliant.

Anyways, I have read/ heard about Mafia but never actually played it. This sounds really interesting. Looking forward to [if] we actually end up doing this in these forums Wink

I have. Couple threads set up for this and run it in chat every so often. Look for a marathon mafiathread in the roleplaying board.
