epicmafia.com is a site where u can play a game called mafia. it’s confusing when you first start playing it, once you catch on it’s really fun. this post is to help that first few games be not so confusing.
i will not be including roleplay stuff since i don’t rp.
in epicmafia, there’s a village and a mafia. the mafia typically kill a player each night, and the village have to figure out who the mafia is and vote to kill them. mafia win if they make up half of the players left alive. village win if all mafia die. some games have 3rd-party roles who are aligned with neither the village or the mafia and have their own win condition. a very basic setup looks like this:
this game has 3 villagers (also called blues or vanilla villagers), 2 vanilla mafia (meaning maf that have no extra abilities), a doc (village-sided role that can choose one person each night and save them), and a cop (village-sided role that can visit one person each night and find out if they are village, mafia, or 3rd party).
the number to the left of the icon shows how many of this role are in the game.
you can mouse over the icons to get a description of what the role does and what side it’s on. in the beginning when you don’t know what any roles do, mouse over each role in the setup so you know all the things that can happen during the game.
here’s the game i am playing right now at the same time as writing this post
