@topsecret Please schedule another board game themed mafia for January/February. I've been deciding among several possible games, but I'm favouring Specter Ops. It's a lesser known game about a secret agent infiltrating a secret facility in future.
I am hosting a NOTW-like game (do you remember those?) on Mafia Universe.
5 day Days, 2 day Nights, specifically a game for busy people, who like fun mechanics, who can play a single game for months and not get bored and wander off and require a sub.
Low power / kills at game start, most players are nearly vanilla to start with, you have rupees and income to buy items from the shop, you can steal rupees from other players, you can protect your own rupees from being stolen, you can protect someone else's items, etc. Most items cannot be stolen if they are equipment that grants you a passive effect.
There are victory conditions besides "kill this entire faction"
Examples: collecting the 4 main quest items on a single person on your faction and winning outright if you hold all 4 for 3 Days.
Possibly strength-related win conditions just like old school NOTW,
Faction-related victory conditions that are not Alignment related, so even if town loses but your faction (mostly town aligned or completely town aligned) wins, you can still win. One team will be the ultimate winner overall, but you can also win. As long as you score at least a minor victory.
