    Poker Mafia - DP1


    Game Mechanics


    • During the day, players will vote to lynch other players like in a normal mafia game.
    • The mafia does not have a factional kill. Instead a night kill is awarded based on who has the best hand. 
    At the beginning each dayphase, each player gets 2 HOLE CARDS (you get new cards every DP); and the FLOP will be shown (The flop is the first 3 COMMUNITY CARDS). Cards are based on a 54 card deck with 2 WILD JOKERS. Before the end of the dayphase, players may FOLD, CHECK/FOLD, or BET; these actions are done by PMing the mod your choice any time before the lynch goes through. 

    • Folding means you’re not playing your hand. Players who fold will not get a role for the night, and will not contend for the night kill. 
    • Betting means you’re playing the hand. Players who bet will be able to use their roles at night, and will contend for the night kill.
    • Check/fold means you may or may not play the hand. If everyone checks, then everyone plays the hand. If even 1 person bets, you automatically fold. 
    • Not submitting an action will behave as a check/fold. 
    At the end of every day phase, the 2 remaining community cards will be dealt in the DP. There will not be any duplicates of cards that are in play at any given time (unless someone cheats). 

    Each night, players who have bet may use their role; your role depends on the best 5-card hand you can make from the 7 cards (your 2 hole cards and the 5 community cards). Also, the player who has the best hand of all the players who bet receives a kill to be used that night. Using the night kill is mandatory; failure to use the night kill results in immediate modkill.

    All hole cards, actions, roles, and nightkill awards are private. That is, only the mod and the player knows what cards they got and what they did. You're allowed to discuss your cards and anything you did in the DP. But of course you may also lie.

    COMPLETE KILL is in effect, since town can also receive the night kill. Mafia must eliminate all town to win.


    Once again just so people are not confused: you have a character, but the character is unrelated to your affiliation and role. Your character is a well-known poker player, and I have included a short bio about them. All these players have won millions of dollars versus other very smart players in a game of skill. If you have some interest games of wit and skill, these are very interesting people.

    Town Roles

    High card - miller
    Pair - tracker
    Two pair - watcher
    Three of a kind - cop
    Straight - BP, effective this night only
    Flush - doc (no self-doc)
    Full house - popular next DP
    Four of a kind - double vote next DP
    Straight Flush - vig
    Five of a kind - declared innocent child

    Mafia roles are different and only known to the mafia.

    Rules

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

    With 10 players alive, it takes 6 votes to lynch.

    Characters are not linked to alignment or role, we are just playing the game characterless basically.

    Given the game setup, I think the best thing to do is to popcorn full claims immediately.

    Yall can discuss anything, as long as it's not c/p'ing PMs or PM structure analysis. Of course you may also lie.

    The only cost of betting as town is you may get a negative utility role. But this DP specifically, that's not possible, because the wild card in the flop guarantees a minimum hand of a pair.

    Lol he probably just didn't read the OP. If anything that makes him more town because Mafia is more likely to read it earlier

    Press didn't know that town don't have roles. I can't discuss PM structure but I'll say we don't have roles as a fact.

    We have a flop, and the two cards in our PMs. Town is guaranteed to have one of the roles listed (based on what type of hand we have)

    Roles are determined by our hand. This is a semi-open setup. The town roles are listed, the scum roles are not. This means that scum is forced to fake claim one of the roles in the list, leaving them vulnerable to CC

    The only way for town to not have a role is to fold.
