 Post subject: Basic Strategy
PostPosted: Sun Apr 08, 2012 11:49 pm 
Here is some basic advice:

1. Molly, lizrita and I have played this game multiple times before. Liz and Molly have both been mafia before, and Molly and I have both moderated the game. We (hopefully) have a reasonable idea of how to play. Gaurav and Raluca, especially at the beginning of the game you should follow our advice.

2. Conserve mafia abilities!!! These should be used strategically to maximum effect, and unless you have a REALLY good reason you should consult with your fellow mafia beforehand. We especially want to hold onto the Conscription ability.

3. We want to make kills most every day. This is good strategy anyway, even without the fail-to-kill penalties. We also want to avoid waiting until shortly before midnight to make the kills.

4. We want to avoid making kills within our own living groups or in locations where we are known to be.

5. We all need to have each other's phone numbers. Anytime you make a kill, the first thing you should do is text your fellow mafia with a code message ("Do you want to meet later today discuss the mafia game?") That way, everyone else will know not to kill that day. Also, we should communicate extensively via this den. Basically, we want to be as coordinated as possible.

6. We don't want to seem linked. Do not irrationally defend/support your fellow mafia.

7. Some players will be severe threats. They should be taken out. More on this later.

8. We will likely want one of us to act as a power role. We'll talk about that over the next couple days.

9. Please reply with questions, disagreements, and additional advice. This is going to be so much fun!

Something else, possibly more important than anything above:

Do not tell anybody that you are mafia, including non-players. The only exception to this will be when we hire a hitman. Actively play the role of an innocent around your friends.

And read the rules super-thoroughly.
