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.

I would like to play.

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.

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!

With the sun shining and the crickets chirping, a game of backyard cricket was started. At first a friendly game, as beer consumption increased the play got more competitive. The crack of the ball on the bat was echoed seconds later by the crack of a skull being hit by the ball.

Somberbrero, Sonny Bill Williams, Kiwi-Aligned Goon was knocked out on Day 1.

The party takes a break. It is now Night 1. Please send through your actions. The game will reopen in 24 hours.

The day was getting warmer. Unfortunately, so was the beer. The party was out of ice. After some discussion it was decided that Opop would go down to the servo and get some more.

Opop, Ray Meagher, Aussie-aligned Vanilla town, went to get ice and never returned.

It is now Day 2.

The lamb on the barbie was perfectly cooked, the snags and onions were sizzling. Suddenly, as everyone started to eat there was the sound of cawing and the whoosh of birds diving. Tithin ran screaming from the party as the magpies swooped at him.

tithin Pavlova, Kiwi-Aligned Roleblocker has been swooped by magpies.

After a tasty lunch, everyone kicked back and relaxed with a few more cold ones. Except Rascyc, who decided to take a dip in the pool. But everyone knows you shouldn't go swimming on a full stomach.

Rascyc, Vegemite, Aussie-aligned Gaoler, went for a swim and never came back.

As the afternoon wore on beer and the climbing heat meant tempers were short. An altercation broke out and punches were thrown. One connected with busb, dropping him to the ground.

busb, The Wiggles, Aussie-aligned Cop, has been king hit.

The drinks and the heat were combining to cloud people's minds. Tearshed thought it would be a great idea to jump the fence into the vacant block behind. Unfortunately the long grass hid a deadly surprise. Tearshed turned and ran, his sudden movement angering the snake, which reared up and bit him.

tearshed, Cathy Freeman, Aussie-aligned Vanilla town, has been killed by a snake bite.

Afternoon was turning into evening and the party vibe was turning sour. The un-Australian feeling still lingered over the group. What should have been a celebration of all things Australian was marred by all the Kiwi's, masquerading as Aussies, at the party.

Suddenly Rarity sprang up. "Thut's it. I'm suck of ull you Aussies, with your jokes about fush and chups. Claiming successful New Zulander's as your own".

She grabbed a beer bottle and smashed it on the table. Brandishing the broken bottle at the party, she took a swing at bowmore, slicing him with its broken edges.

Quid, who was hiding behind bowmore, stuck his head out to see what was happening, just in time for Rarity to stab him with the bottle too.

bowmore, Cate Blanchett, Aussie-aligned Vanilla Town and Quidnose, Skippy, Aussie-aligned Hider have been killed.

DHD, James Packer, Aussie-aligned Vanilla Town has been endgamed.

Rarity, Russell Crowe, Kiwi-aligned Goon has won the game, along with her scum mates.

The party is over.
