Mafia: The Game [Dentro Il Cuore Oscuro]


Recommended Posts

Simply put, it's a game in which there are two main factions: the Town and the Mafia. The Town aims to win the game by eliminating all members of the Mafia. The Mafia aims to win the game by becoming the majority faction in the game (i.e having more members than the Town). Nobody aside from the members in the Mafia know who the mafioso are. Obviously, to counter this, there are many more townspeople in the game than there are mafioso.

Each round there is a lynching. All players vote on whom to remove from the game in hopes of hitting a member of the Mafia (if you're a townsperson. The Mafia would like to eliminate townspeople, of course, and will likely try to influence the vote in their favour). The Mafia also get one kill each round; they decide on who gets offed amongst themselves.

There are lots of special roles thrown into the game that add to the complexity of it. One example would be the Sheriff, who is sided with the town and has the ability to investigate players to see if they are aligned with the Mafia or not. Another would be the Vigilante, also a town-sided role. The Vigilante has the ability to kill one player each round.

That's the general idea of it, but the original post has a more in-depth explanation of the game. You'll learn best by playing-- after a game or two, it'll make a whole lot more sense.
