This is a Phalla
game, Penny Arcade Forum's version of the party game Mafia. If this is your first game, it will be informative to visit the linked topic for some background information. The game is inspired by the Archer
television show on FX. The show is filled with some explicit language and sexuality, and I intend to capitalize on this fact in humorous fashion.
Genre: Traditional (Village vs. Mafia). There will be no conversions, thralls, vlads, etc. in this game. See special rules, however.
Every day a player will vote for someone they think is a rival spy/terrorist/mafioso in bold red
Voting will close each day at 9PM EST (UTC -5)
; any actions before the hour (x:59) will count, any actions on the hour and later (x:00) will not.
Sex: Archer has a lot of references to sex. I'm incorporating that into a unique function of my game. Seering takes place as follows: two players agree to "have sex" with each other during the night. They then add the host to their PM thread where both
have explicitly written that they will spend the night with the other player. The next day both will receive PMs revealing information about the other player.
WARNING: Sexually explicit content will not be tolerated by this host. Please keep yourselves in check, folks. This is meant for humor, not titillation.
Money: Players will receive a salary each day in accordance with their job. This can be used to purchase special items posted at the start of each day and at 12PM EST (for those of you on the other side of the world). Items will be first-come, first-serve.
Sign up with the phrase "I !sign up
" or similar phrase in bold limegreen
or other bright, easily visible color to ensure that your intent to play is acknowledged. There is a maximum limit of 50 players for this game and a minimum of 30. Let's see how many of you want to play.
It is expected that players make at least two posts and a vote each day to be considered sufficiently active. A warning will be sent on the first day that this requirement is not met, and a replacement will be made on the second consecutive day of inactivity or third day overall. If there are no replacements available, then the player will be eliminated from the game.
Any questions about the general game rules may be made by highlighting the question in bold orange text
. Answers will be posted in the thread and collected in the below section. Player-specific inquiries that are not addressed in the general rules may be asked via PM to host daniant.
Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots and direct quotation. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game.
If any players create "proboards" for private communication or interesting conversations including more than two players, please send links for them to the host.
Example Village Role
Primary win condition: Destroy the mafia
is it possible to have an orgy?
You may only have sex with one person each night. Not that the orgy doesn't sound hilarious but...game mechanics.
Role-calls will not be allowed.
Order of Actions: Vote, items, guard, vig, sex
The vote does not trickle.
Just to be clear, we cannot announce to the world whom we've slept with? Can we reveal this information privately?
Yes and yes.
Items' function may not be revealed to the thread until they have been used.
Is it possible to pool our money? An "office pool" if you will?
No, tontines are illegal.
Can players sell their items, if they wish?
