Social Thread

Mafia is a forum game of strategy, deduction, persuasion, clever traps, nerve and deception. Every game is unique and playing it with those who play diplomacy as well makes it all the more challenging and interesting. We have a unique mafia community on the site and we're always looking for fresh blood.

I'd be a European outlier too, but keeping more sociable hours than sjg.


Not to stereotype, but does that mean you like yourself the football? Because I pitched a football-themed game (and I mean soccer, not American football) and was planning to finish it up and run it if people were interested sometime this summer. #shamelessplug

I was actually thinking that if the soccer/football game goes well, I could try to adapt other sports as well. Racing would certainly allow for some uh, "mechanical" hijinks. :)

You and me both. You and me both.

My levels of nostalgia whenever I wheel out CM01/02 or FM05 are incredible.

Probably shouldn't admit it but have played every version since it started (CM '93?) and still have my saves from those days on 3.5" discs. I'm in the credits for the last few versions too ;)

Haha I haven't quite gotten that far yet. Plus I only started playing when I picked up a version of FM05 for like £1 one day. Been hooked ever since. Best bargain ever.

Someday we'll have to start a Co-op save so I can beat yo ass into the next millennium.

You would undoubtedly do that!

PSA: I'm currently sitting with a pot of English breakfast tea, a little bowl of sugar so I don't have to keep going to the kitchen when I top up, and a package of Digestive cookies. I don't think I've ever truly understood Sjg until this moment.

But started to feel somewhat glum,
Did leave for a time,
Now comes back to rhyme,
And also to kill her some scum.
