The game of mafia where every post must be an image.
The idea behind the game is that you have to convey your thoughts using only images. I. e. using the picture of a dragon followed by the picture of Don Corleone to say DDL is bad. Creativity is the norm here. Smileys and animated gifs are also fair game.
I will provide you with sample images containing images related to each player and most common mafia words. You are expected to use your creativity for the rest, though.
However, I'm also going to give you a CHEAT BUTTON. Every player will be allowed to, 5 times per day/night cycle, post an image with text added to it (called "Text Image").Each Text Image can have up to 30 words. You will be awarded another 2 uses if you participate in a mafia/serial killer lynch in the previous day.
Naturally, I will also provide you with sites that can generate images with text or host them so you don't have to look for them.
NOTE: This game assumes every player can post and read images. This means you will not play most of it on phone, or you are skilled enough with a phone that you can copy and paste images in it with ease. Additionally, expect it to be heavier than most games in data consumption.
Finally, here are the details about the game:
- 15-20 players.
- 24/24 phases.
- Open setup.
- Role claiming and info dumping allowed.
- Players win or lose with their entire faction.
- Vote changing allowed.
- Double targetting banned.
- Night killed roles are shown, unless the mafia janitor interferes.
Setup (assuming 20 players, if there are less I'll adapt it):
1 vigilante (2-shot)
10 vanilla civilians
1 godfather (appears as civ on investigations)
1 mafia roleblocker
1 janitor (players killed by it have their roles hidden and only the mafia knows it)
1 mafia goon
1 serial killer (1-shot bulletproof)
