    In the last NoTW's there have been bettween 30 and 40 signups which could be said to be a lot of interested people. There is a quee for that since there is only normally running one at a time.

    As for other "normal" mafia games there are always running some alongside and there isn't really any quee that I know of.

    Do you any moderators would object to me opening a thread for sign-ups for a game of mafia? I don't want to steal players from any other games that might be in sign-up phase, etc, or otherwise create trouble (the non-fun kind, of course) :p

    Taillesskangaru wanted to host one apparently, maybe you could ask him ?

    I'm always game for a simple mafia, so the sooner the better.

    I don't play mafia games, but I thought that who hosted the next game was typically done within the current mafia games thread. Other then that, I see no problem with opening a side up thread.

    Yeah, it's typically there's no queue, and the one who gets to host the next thread is decided in the current thread.

    Ah ok; this forum looks pretty busy, and as soon as Taillesskangaru posts his game, I will even do him the courtesy of asking players to sign up to his game first and post a link in my OP, since it is his turn. If there are no objections, maybe I can host a little one to get things rolling, and I can get more familiar with all of you and vice-versa.

    I can host your basic mafia games no problem... I have been around the block a few times and I also like to host theme games or games with different (but balanced) set-ups. I hope to see a lot of you there. :goodjob:

    If it is preferred I wait until Taillesskangaru is finished hosting his, that is fine too, just go ahead and lock my thread.

    If you really want to get to know the community, i'de recommend signing up for the next NOTW, or night of the werewolves, which is our community's highly popular Mafia variant, with much more complexity and depth than the average mafia game. (not that i mean to disparage the mafia's at all.)

    The Chainsaw Gang mafia game is now concluded.

    I would like to host another one, but it is now Taillesskangaru's turn. I'll wait. :goodjob: Also, as a courtesy, if anyone else wants to go after Taillesskangaru I'll step aside, but if there's more interest after that, then there should be a queue, and I'll be reserving a spot in that imaginary queue after Tailless and anyone else who wants to host. If that's all right.

    Oh I forgot to update the first post, diddle I. Thanks for the reminder.

    There isn't really a queue for mafia games, they've always been run in a charmingly amateurish and haphazard fashion and succession is no different, but your game seems to have been well-received. Wish I'd played in it, now.

    Thank you.

    As soon as it's appropriate for me to host another one, I'll do so and be sure you're invited!

    All right, Taillesskangaru declined to host his, and after waiting a couple of days and inviting others to start one of theirs, no one came forward.

    As such, I'm starting another one: Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Bring out yer dead!

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail is now complete. Next host may begin hosting.

    Thanks for letting me host two in a row, both games are now favorites of mine, thanks to all the great players. Thanks also for welcoming me into your community, CFC'ers!

    Apologies for not updating the first post recently: the stupid dongle I'm using to connect only seems to work for three minutes at a time.

    It is a race to finish this post in fact!

    Are there going to be any regular clue-based mafia games starting up soon? ATPG's style of games is fun but it is too time-consuming for me at the moment (like NotW) and so I'm quite sad at what seems to be the apparent death of these games. :(

    @sprig: Go ahead, it looks like CG's game might fall apart soon, and I don't have time for my own right now.

    @rfc: Your game sounds like crap. Just. Stop.
