The town of Phalla has been infested with members of the local mafia. They have been growing in power and leeching off the beautiful community for too long. The members of the town are fed up and decide to band together and get rid of them all. Only problem? They don't know who is mafia and who isn't. Its up to you to figure that out and ensure they don't take over.

Game Overview

Genre: Village v Mafia with a pretty vanilla roleset. Expect normal roles and a standard game. Read this thread for more information about how Phalla, Penny Arcade Forum's version of the party game Mafia, is played. If this is your first game, it will be informative to visit the linked topic for some background information.

Special Notes

This is not an Obi-phalla. I had an idea for a vanilla game and wanted to try it out.

Kill count might be high. It might also be low. Game length is gonna depend on players.

I am still ObiFett, though. There is a slight twist to this game. Nothing major, but something interesting nonetheless.


Due to pressure by the town, there will be regular votes to offer up members of your town for lynching. Vote for the player who you find most suspicious in bold red. You may retract a vote by posting "!retract vote for <player name>" or similar phrase in bold limegreen or change your vote by making another one in bold red. Do not, under any circumstance, edit a post that has a vote. If an edit is necessary, make a new post instead. The player who receives the most votes will be turned over to the mob and removed from the game. Should there be a tie in the vote, then all players involved in the tie will be eliminated, as well as the player that instigated the tie, whether that be due to a vote being placed or a vote being removed. If the vote winner is eliminated before the vote is resolved, there will be no "trickle down".

Voting will close each day at 10PM MST SHARP; any votes before the hour (x:59) will count, any votes on the hour and later (x:00) will not.


If you have orders, they need to be submitted before vote close.

Signing Up

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.

Signups will be open until we reach the maximum amount of players (25). I would love to be able to have more, but this is what I have it balanced for. If demand is high enough, I might be able to push it to 30, but no higher. The game will start as soon as we have enough players.


It is expected that players make at least two posts and make a vote.. 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 darkorange 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 the host.

Other Rules

Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots or direct quotation. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. You may not add new players to preexisting private conversations after the first message - start a new conversation instead. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game. Once you are eliminated, you may not make any more game conversation with players remaining in the game.

All proboards must be linked to the host and all conversations must have the host included.

Sample Villager PM
You are a Townsperson. The filthy mafia have made your town the home of their scum and villainy for too long. Its up to you and the rest of the town to use your numbers and finally be rid of them. The town has armed itself to the teeth and is ready to take out all the members of the mafia.
