    Poker mafia is a mafia game with special mechanics.

    Game info

    • designed for 10-13 players. 10 players is optimal for balance reasons (a typical hold'em table has 10 players).
    • Does not require poker knowledge, although basic knowledge of poker hands helps. If you don't know poker hands I can tell you exactly what your role is at night.
    Special mechanics

    • no set roles: your role depends on your hand, which changes every night.
    • The role a player receives differs depending on whether the player is town or mafia. Town's role assignment list is public; mafia's role assignment list is only known to mafia.
    • cards are guaranteed to be randomly shuffled every phase.
    • players may take actions during the day to affect their poker odds against other players during the night.
    • no factional night kill for mafia: instead, night kills will be awarded based on a player's hand, meaning town can also receive kills.
    • Mafia's advantage revolves around abilities to 'cheat' at poker.
    • complete kill: mafia must eliminate all town to win.
    Theme

    All players are randomly assigned the name of a well-known professional poker player. This is for thematic flavoring only, meaning the name of the player is randomized and has no bearing on either faction or role. I do not mean to imply that any of the poker players named in the game are cheaters!

    Game rules

    • Normal rules apply, no screenshotting PMs, no outside comms, respect the spirit of the game, etc.
    • UNVOTEing is encouraged, not required
    • 72 hour DP, 24 hour NP
    • Majority lynch

    I love poker and am good at mafia but this website has a very cliquey group so I may be not allowed here, it's up to you.

    I have never gamethrown and when truly put under pressure reveal at least my character or part of my role. I believe rhat poker theory applies to mafia and that to let other blackmail you to reveal your entiee hand whike they revealed none of theirs is a foolish play, no matter how knuckleheaded the town is.


    If that's an issue, don't allow me in your game. This doesn't mean I never out day one when pressured, it means I want negotiation and reasoning if you're going to get it out of md.

    This is a very interesting mechanic. Could go terribly wrong but overall I definitely at least like the concept. /in

    The evaluation is flawed because your information comes from sources that either know too little about me, are biased against me or both at once.

    No, but your role can. If I read it right.

    I can't promise having the proper amount of time to play this, but put me down as a replacement in case anyone drops out.

    6 or 9 is the norm in hold'em with the alternative being headsup or 3-man tables.

    Where do you play that 10-man is the norm?

    'man' is not sexist in this situation, it is poker terminology for how many seats are available in the table and, for single-table sit-n-go, required for them to begin.

    By the way if Phil Hellmuth isn't godfather, you don't know your poker players.

    Phil Ivey could be either alignment but will be an extreme power role,

    Dan Negreanu will be a huge town PR.

    Won't spoil more, good luck who play.

    Okay, I will spoil one thing, Doyle Brunson will be the Sheriff.

    I am not doing forum mafia these days but the mechanics here will make for an interesting game. I will /in for this one.

    Is it possible for you yo give more details on the following before the game starts?:

    players may take actions during the day to affect their poker odds against other players during the night.

    I want to keep the discussion in the game thread, but a high level description: you can choose to fold, check, or bet like in a poker game, and each of these affect your chances of getting a role and your chance of winning the night kill.
