Speaking of, I saw the other day Marvel had a game out that looks basically like Secret Hitler, but Secret Hydra. Anyone play this yet?

How do you guys play your rl Mafia games?

I usually make sure people are a bit drunk (but not too) throw in some sort of incentive towards winning / against losing.

Then we sit in a circle and I play theme songs for each role there is during nighttime so people know when to open their eyes / keep them closed. (Even if there isn’t a cop I’ll play a cop song. )

Music covers up any sort of movement and people can easily point towards who they want to save / kill / whatever.

Any more tips from the crowd?

One Night Ultimate Werewolf and its expansions basically do all this for you, including the nighttime announcements (there's a phone app) and pregame stuff.

Iíve always just had music on in the background, didnít go through the trouble of custom themes like you did but itís a good way to try to drown out any incidental moving. I also allow general chit chat during the night too, seems to have worked fine.

Biggest tip I can have is donít do flipless. Every time I play in person with a new group they want to do flipless for some reason and I have to save them from themselves.

But echoing everyone else, havenít played much just straight mafia irl in a while, itís mostly been Avalon and ONUW

Edit: one thing I want to try is not having traditional night with closed eyes and such and just having folks text in their orders. People are on their phone all the time anyway, think having a few minute break where people can go to the bathroom or whatever and itíd be easy to send a message in, but havenít gotten to try that yet

I've never player IRL but I thought that'd be how everyone would be doing it?

It made the most sense to me anyway, as opposed to trying to get a bunch of grown ups to sit around patiently with their eyes closed when there is alcohol involved.

Itíd be hella slower though. And honestly my friends arenít on the phone that much during parties and especially not during games.

So itíd immediately be obvious who was texting a lot (if scum had to coordinate and send orders to me)

There should be a jackbox esque mafia or avalon thing where your console and tv can do the mod duties and you handle votes and stuff by joining the room via website on your phones.

im pretty sure those one night games have some apps now

avalon doesn't really need one the mod stuff is so simple.
but i mean i think a game built around being used with an app could like actually do some neat stuff with unique mechanics and what not

I have been devising a game of Assassin that I'm looking forward to, but I'm concerned about having too much impact on other games. I'd want it to be an extremely slow burn?? Things for after Everdunes
