How do I start a game?
To create a game, simply create a thread for it in this board. Players, if they think it will be fun, will begin signing up for it. The game does not need to be added to the Mafia Schedule, though it can be if you want.What do I do after that?
After that, you should wait until you have what you consider to be enough players. While players are signing up, you should be creating the roles. After all roles are created and you have enough players, you can post a message in your game thread or PM Smasher
to have your game added to the schedule (PMing is preferred as the messages are not always seen). Once it is added to the schedule it will appear as italicized and will slowly move up to the top.And when it reaches the top?
When your game reaches the top four spots of the schedule, it will be bolded. Once the game is bolded, that is a green light - allowing you to start the game. If your game does not start within a period of time from the bolding of it on the schedule, it will be put on hold indefinitely.How can I start a game that was put on hold?PM Smasher
with a request to start your game. After the next game finishes, your game should go after it.What are some suggested websites to help with hosting?
Most players use two websites:http://random.orghttp://quicktopic.com
Random.org allows for randomization, helping you decide which players get which roles.
Quicktopic.com allows you to create a quicktopic, which is a topic that can only be posted in by those with the link to the topic. It is used to facilitate discussion between mafia members, as well as other parties that discuss.
Both websites are free to use.Cancellation Policy
If a host is not ready to put their mafia on the schedule before four months after their last post in their mafia's lounge, then a they will receive a reminder. If the host does not confirm whether the mafia is cancelled or not after two weeks, then it will be considered cancelled and will be archived. After the thread is archived, the host may request to have it unlocked if they wish to host it again.Important!
Players do not like hosts who interfere too much with their games, and will not sign up for games they dislike. Host interference should be kept to a minimum in all cases. Additionally, activity is important for hosts. If games go too long without changing phases, they will be put on hold indefinitely.
