Re: Mafia 1 - The CROWN - POST GAME

Psychos and Mafia are not allies, so in theory they could have killed one another. It just so happened that the psychos were all killed in one go during the multi-lynch festival of 2020 before they accomplished anything. :D Yes, but statistically they're both more likely to kill townies, especially...

Re: Mafia 2 - This is SPARTA - Signup

The game ends when Traitors attain majority, or the town declares a night and no deaths occur . Should this say: no night kills were attempted ? If the linked rules by Davidoff are implemented directly, then having no deaths at night appears to be very likely, even on multiple nights. It's hard for...

Re: Mafia 1 - The CROWN - POST GAME

In the town's defense, I think our chances were very slim from the start. Even with the delayed/decelerated night kill rate of evil factions, a ratio of 12 evil out of 28 players (0.43) is extremely high. My understanding of game design is that evil/total ratio MUST be between 1/4 and 1/3. Here we w...
