I have not really thought over if there’s a breaking/degen strategy. This is an experiment that’s an extension of ranked.
2 Mafia Goons - NO PRIVATE COMS
6 Town Vanillas
How voting will work:
Game operates in 24 hour phases. For simplicity they’ll be from noon to noon EST.
At any point in each phase players may privately submit/update a post of the form (assuming 8 players alive):
Player 1: Mafia
Player 2: Town
Player 3: Town
Player 4: Mafia
Player 5: Town
Player 6: Mafia
Player 7: Town
Player 8: Mafia
After each cycle votes are compiled and are revealed to all, if one player has a majority of players calling them mafia they instantly die. If 2 phases pass with no majority, in the next phase all players who have the most votes die.
Traditional votes in topic are meaningless.
Beyond the classical win/loss town will be rated relative to teach other based on how they performed on the voting ballots. Identifying Mafia correctly gets you the most points, followed by identifying town correctly while identifying town incorrectly loses you more points than identifying mafia incorrectly. Exact values adjusted based on probabilities for a given day.
Mafia wins scorched earth.
Assuming mafia loses and this were rated mafia would lose less points the later they lose so try to play with that assumption.
