How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a
Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a
Forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence
Impoverished, in squalor
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar?




Welcome to Hamilton Mafia, a game for 13 players.

This is a mostly closed setup, but open flavour. A list of the historical figures in this game is below. However, roles and alignment have been randomly assigned. There is no guarantee that Burr or Maria Reynolds are scum or that Hamilton is town, so don't go making any flavour arguments for anything or I will laugh at you. Here is the list of characters (in order of appearance)

  • Aaron Burr
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • John Laurens
  • Marquis de Lafayette
  • Hercules Mulligan
  • Eliza Schuyler
  • Angelica Schuyler
  • King George III
  • George Washington
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • James Madison
  • Philip Hamilton
  • Maria Reynolds

In addition, historical figures that are played by the same actor will be in unconfirmed masonries with each other, even if they are scum together. There will be three unconfirmed masonries:

  • Daveed Diggs Masonry - Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson
  • Oak Masonry - Hercules Mulligan and James Madison
  • Anthony Ramos Masonry - John Laurens and Philip Hamilton

A note: this game is open to anyone who wants to play, but I highly, highly recommend that you do not play unless you know the musical. There will be day events that will give advantages based on knowing things about the musical. You will be at a pretty significant disadvantge if you do not know it, also I will like you a lot less.

Standard rules apply, I'll add these in later.

Even if this fills up today, I don't fly out until tomorrow, so probably won't start until Wednesday even though everything is written.

In the meantime we can all fangirl out about the musical and how much we all love Lin because he's amazing and I'm basically a stalker at this point.

I'll save you some time, the best songs are Aaron Burr's storyline through the following songs: Wait for it, Dear Theodosia, The Room Where it Happens, The Election of 1800, Your Obedient Servent and finally, The World Was Wide Enough.

Also, Burn is very good, and so is Satisfied.

E: I suppose Aaron Burr, Sir is actually essential to the Burr storyline but that's a bit of an exposition song

Also the only true way to listen to the cast recording is to listen to the entire thing in one go, while reading the lyrics along with it.

It's truly a story and individual songs will never do it justice.

I did not. Cool.

I'm glad Clipping exists so that I don't have to listen Death Grips.

Fun fact. I had been listening to Clipping for years before I heard Hamilton and it still took me like 6 months before I realized Daveed Diggs was in both.

Another note: The city I live in is also called Hamilton and I regularly have to explain to locals that the musical is not about us.

What do you think the worst Hamilton line is? I think it's definitely Aaron Burr saying "I'll keep all my plans close to my chest" basically just telling about his character after an entire act of showing it.

In addition to my love for Lin, I also love Daveed Diggs. I actually like the acapella versions of the clipping. songs though rather than the full versions, cause it has a lot of sorta unnatural noises that I'm sure works for them, but I find takes away from how good the lyrics are. I essentially just like to listen to Daveed rap really fast.

He's one away from an EGOT and he's writing the songs for the new Pixar movie that comes out in November, so really it's extremely possible he gets it this year.

Daveed Diggs is probably one of the most talented men I'm currently aware of. Lin as well, but I feel like people are already aware of that.

"You can keep seeing my whore wife if the price is right. If not I'm telling your wife."

It's super clunky.

Angelica in Satisfied. "I know she'll be happy as his bride, and I know he will never be satisfied."

Like god drat woman setting your sister up with a man who will never truly love her is pretty hosed.

Something about Lin tricks you brain into forgetting he is some sort of talented and charismatic superhuman so that he always just seems like a normal guy which makes his rise to fame really enjoyable, because its like "woo score 1 for the normies" except he is some sort of monster

Also "Now for a strong central democracy. If not then I'll be Socrates throwing verbal rocks at these mediocrities."

It's an interesting line, but it just never feels right to say. I can do all of Guns and Ships and the rant from We Know without a second thought, but I still struggle to get that right.

I think it's because he's just so enthusiastic about everything. He's enjoyment of life is contagious. Also he posts dumb memes on twitter every day. He's a regular guy who also happens to be a complete genius.

It's not the greatest song, but it's a whole lot of fun to sing. I put it in the same league as Farmer Refuted and We Know. Super necessary to the plot? Nah (We Know is, but could be put in somewhere else if need be). A whole lot of fun to sing once you know the words. Hells yeah.

Like objectively the best song is My Shot, but also I think it depends what kind of person you are whether My Shot or Wait For It resonates with you more. I like Wait For It as a song, but it doesn't really hit me like some other people.

The setup was made independently of the characters and then RNG'd. Unlike my last game I wanted to make sure the actual mafia game was balanced rather than trying to cater to flavour while sacrificing the actual game. This is a flavour heavy game, but it will still be a very typical mafia game outside of that. Even the day events, which have rewards, are balanced.
