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.

Ok fair enough, to be honest I doubt things will be up and running before then anyway so you've got plenty of time to check your schedule and stuff.

And just found out you are actually Firestorm... who's a player who was a veteran when I started playing Mafia and who was MVP in Fable 2 waaayyyyy back in the day.

I remember Firestorm, I think we played a game or two together a few years ago. Welcome back! :D

In that case, someone needs to drop, quick! All pending games need to be exactly 2 players short of being able to start at all times, 'tis a custom :P

If anyone drops out right now, sjg will track you down, rip out your intestines and wear them as a hat.

Have a nice day everyone. ;)

Yeah man. I lost my password and had bought premium membership on this account back when I made it last year. My premium has lapsed at this point (again, me being a dummy, I got super busy like a week into it and had to drop off the site again), and I actually found my old password. I'm going to have to message the mods when I'm home and figure out if I should stick with this or go back to the old account. That, like, 2009 or something join date and the years and years of dumb posts by teenage me can't go to waste!

It's nice to see this place is still going after all these years. This was such a big deal for me back in high school, and I always regretted not being able to contribute more.

@shadowface: Oh yeah, I super vaguely remember you. Thanks for the warm welcome!

My name changed slightly so that's probably a confusing factor (I was shadowfriend1 then). I probably wasn't very noticeable though, I had no idea what I was doing for the first few years I played here :)

Oh yeah, shadowfriend rings a bell a bit more. I remembered shadowsomething at least. And yeah, I still have no idea what I'm doing when I play, so you've already surpassed me. :D

See I've found that pretending you know what you're doing and yelling loudly about double standards whenever anyone questions you is a very effective way to deal with that ;)

And yes, you can't let the many hours wasted playing Mafia disappear completely.

I doubt I have enough of them to make much of a hat.

Yeah, mine would probably be much more stylish as a bandolier/sash/multi-looped necklace.

Now comes back to rhyme,
And also to kill her some scum.
