I'm proud of you, Bender. Sure, you lost. You lost bad. But the important thing is I beat up someone who hurt my feelings in high school.



Australia Day. The public holiday everyone looks forward to all year. Sunshine. Barbeque’s crackling. A dip in the pool. Too many tinnies. Some backyard cricket. Fireworks in the evening.

Except not this year. Something un-Australian casts a shadow over the day. Can you figure it out and save this most iconic of holidays?

This is a game of mafia for 17 players. New players are especially welcome.

If there are too many sign-ups (ha ha) then players will be chosen in this order: Aussies -> Canadians -> Everyone else -> New Zealanders.

THE RULES:
DON’T LURK.
No editing your posts.
No talking OOT unless you are able to do so.
Don't post your role PM or any other communication from the mod.
Don't post after hammers or daykills.
Don't fake day actions.
Don’t do anything not in the spirit of the game.

Days will typically last 48-72 hours at the start, getting shorter towards the end of the game.
This game is majority lynch. If the town is unable to come to a conclusion, and deadline arrives, there will be NO LYNCH.

It's weird that there are different parts of Australia. Like you're different if you're from one part or another. Not foolin' me.

The main thing I want for anyone playing my game is to have fun. However, a significant proportion of the mafia community do not find playing games with you fun Harold, so I'm not accepting your signup.

P.sure that was a one-time thing a long time ago. How's a man to redeem himself if you don't give him a chance?

So I presume that the good guys in this game are tourists visiting your penal colony or something like that? Or maybe some helpful Kiwis? Also I'll play.

A backyard somewhere in Australia

You arrive at the barbeque. The sun is shining and you can feel the humidity building. The smell of lamb roasting on the barbie wafts over. Heading to the esky, you grab a tinnie and crack it open. After locating a stubbie holder, you head over to your mates, chilling by the pool. The Hottest 100 hasn’t started on the radio yet. Someone’s got it on an oldies station and Farnsie tunes are blasting into the still air. This is going to be one memorable Australia Day.

The party has started!
