Hello! This is a mafia game based on the 1982 film "The Thing" for 12 players.



This game will have a cultlike mechanic

It differs from normal mafia in a couple ways.

There will be a single creature at the start of the game, there will be a n0 which will happen before any roles are confirmed in which the creature chooses the first infected. Anyone who does not get a role pm is uninfected at the start of the game.

The infected will know who the other infected players are but will not have any out of thread communication.

The only way an infected can be found is by the daily vote, the vote is for who to blood test.

The infected/uninfected status of the vote will be displayed as the flip but that player will not be dead.

Each night the creatures will get to infect another uninfected player.



Each night a random UNINFECTED player will get a kill, the person will not be announced in thread.

This kill can be withheld or used.

Play will continue in this way until either the creatures have all been killed or until they have taken over the base (nothing can stop them from controlling the vote)

Game's over, and fuck you Jimson. It's not my fault that you guys couldn't get your shit together by deadline. No one gets access to docs because I don't fucking care anymore, I hope you all enjoyed ruining my game, and there won't be another.


Bowmore ran a THING mafia and I totally owned it as the THING, that was good times.

I trust you will live up to this legacy Cpig

I searched to see if anyone had done it before and I figured it had been long enough where it could be run again.

I too, hope that I can live up to it.

this isn't a signup, I'm just wondering if I'm being a total idiot and missing something blatantly obvious with how the game works.

game essentially starts with two things

each night the town gets a kill, but each night there's also a new thing

even if town shot perfectly every time how do you ever kill all the things

you have to either immediately kill creature day 1 or vig/lynch correctly in tandem multiple times [impossible for town to win[all cpig games lol]]

Huh. Uh, you're right. The version I played killed the Thing on a positive result and it didn't end the day. Day only ended when town was tested. No night kill.

I'll play, if the game begins after the 29th. I'm out of the country until then, so if it fills sooner I will need to sit out.

I'm very disappointed in both of you.

First of all, maybe bring this up to me in private or at least think that this has been thought of.

It was more directed at bif, I don't barge into your games and tell you your game is unwinnable without at least checking and seeing if that is really true.

that's kinda what I was trying to do though, I assumed there must be either something critical in the OP I had not read or grasped, despite looking it over three times thinking I was nuts, or something critical in the OP that was accidentally missing.

but uh, ok if I'm not actually missing something and everyone else is happy to play sit-around-and-wait-for-literally-inevitable-death mafia, don't let me stop ya or nothing

My only real point is maybe send me a pm instead of coming into the thread with it. You know, since you can't see the setup to confirm is your suspicions are correct or not. (Hint: You're wrong)

Ok that's that.

I'm going to get the player list in the op fixed and then start n0.

When d1 starts if you did not get a PM then you are vanilla town.

Closing thread until day 1.
