Alright guys, so here’s how this game works. You’re all mafia! And you get to select your roles.
Mafia Godfather - randomized (sorry, this guy doesn’t get to pick)
Loyalist - aligned with the godfather
Driver - aligned with the player on their right (there will be a selection order)
FBI agent - Wins if the godfather targets him
Thief - Wins if they successfully stole the most diamonds.
Street Urchin - wins if a thief wins
So, the gameplay… The godfather starts off with a box that contains roles and diamonds.
For balance reasons, roles will be added to the box at even player numbers (this prevents a loyal block from forming).
The god father starts by removing 0-5 diamonds from the box, so the godfather is the only player who knows how many diamonds start.
Then, in turn order, each player can take either a role or any amount of diamonds.
The first player may also choose to bury a role (this role will be removed from the game).
The last player may choose to take nothing and become a street urchin.
Once the godfather gets the box back, he examines the content and must now recover all of his missing diamonds.
If the godfather accuses incorrectly (hitting a loyalist or a driver), then the player who stole the most diamonds (and still has them) wins. If the godfather accuses the FBI or CIA agent, the agent immediately wins, everyone else loses. If the godfather accuses a thief or a street urchin, that player is eliminated from the game and the diamonds that player possesses are returned to the godfather.
The goal is for the godfather to lead the interrogation, but everyone is free to post at any time.
Quantity of each role will be announced once sign ups are completed
