Because they are scum, either in game or in real life. In game, they want to fake disinterest. In real life, they join games not to play mafia but to get night actions and do whacky stuff.

In real life, I try to con the loudmouthed rear end in a top hat into being the Werewolf mod so I don't need to deal with their hubris.

I don't think I'd need a power in RL mafia. Then you can actually read people's tells and such. It's less of a crap shoot.

Disagree. In my experience, it's a few minutes of dilly-dallying, the moderator getting mad and threatening no-lynch, and then a sudden irrational turbo, usually against whoever tends to get turboed for no particularly good reason.

D1 at least. Then scum/wolves start smirking. You can also hear them shuffling to point at people if they're particularly bad at it.

If I ever mod RL games I make lots of noise during the night phase to prevent this.

It got bad enough that the usual mod had to be clear that any rustling or shifting or sounds over the night were legitimate scumtells/hints/points of discussion.

It's the same but different. It's a lot easier to hit with deductive reasoning, and as bad guy it's a lot easier to keep a straight face.

To that end, I highly recommend Secret Hitler. It's like Resistance, just a bit more fluid.

I actually prefer this anyway, since everyone gets to participate the whole way through.

Yeah the lack of player elimination makes the Resistance better for real life play. If the group is way too big, maybe go for 2 rooms and a boom. If the group is small, well play a proper boardgame.

Secret Hitler didn't seem to do much more of interest to me, when reading over it. It seems like one of those dull edge games. Yeah let's add Hitler. Whacky! It made me skeptical from the start so I may not have a unbiased opinion. Other dull edge games being CaH and Exploding kittens.

I've not played CaH nor Exploding Kittens, but what I like about Secret Hitler is that...Hitler is secret. Both factions are trying to suss out who it is, and I've seen fascists lose for pinging the incorrect Hitler at the end, even though Hitler has been on their side the whole time.

I also like that it has a couple of rounds of, here's a wrench into the game. With resistance it's just, town/good-guys can't afford to pass too many times. With Secret Hitler, a policy is necessarily passed each round, and on certain rounds Stuff Happens.

I can see why one might be skeptical at the concept, but I'd strongly encourage playing! Each game takes about a half-hour, and you could even do it with a standard deck of cards. I have about half the game from a picture of the round order on a whiteboard, but if you (this thread) want(s), I can ask my friend for how to organize and distribute the cards.

I played a new social game called SPYFALL with some friends recently, it's pretty neat. Everyone gets a card that has your location and your job on it, unless you're the spy in which case you get a card that just says SPY.

The spy is trying to figure out where they are.
Everyone else is trying to figure out who the SPY is.

You ask a direct question to someone and they answer, then THEY ask a direct question to someone and they answer. It goes around like this until you're accusing someone or the spy is announcing where they are or the time runs out in which case everyone gets to accuse and vote people.

Trick is to be vague enough that you can tell the person you're talking to actually knows where they are while not so obvious that the spy can figure out you're in a zoo or whatevs.

It was fun! Especially with wine!
