Post Forum Game Devlopment Discussion
Sup' Doods, As you know there are too many complex games, such as RTD, that require Constant Commitment and are not open to new people out of the blue.

Here, I plan that we devlop new simple games such as replacements for the long dead Vending machine game.

what say you data realms fan forums?

(this has been changed from simple to now midly complex games)

I think we need an alternative to random number generation. I want a strategy game where the outcome was certain from the beginning, maybe with predefined stats or something.

I'm thinking about running a game of Mafia some time but I don't know if you'd call that simple

I would say this is the right section, as the Games part is for games and this is clearly discussing the rules. and Yes, we are here to devlop simple forum games such as the Vending machine game where by it doesn't require the commitment of one player, and that said player can constalty shift.

How would one play Mafia on a forum with me on it. We all know that I am the most perfect Mafia player that has ever walked the earth (or rolled on it if you're a paraplegic). You cannot beat me ever. That stated, I would like to know HOW you'd play it regardless, would you do PMs or something? The game requires vocal communication, sure, but what it needs more is facial communication. A flash of the eyes makes the difference between a cop and a killer. Hell, it would be sheer luck to win or lose, because there is a distinct lack of such things.

I'd love to play, but I don't think it would work.

He ran a few games on the picturewars forums and those went well.
A bit too well, actually, so they were pretty close to eachother and people grew tired of it.

I'm all for it, but watch out. Even if I'm a regular citizen then I will do my part as a faithful member of society. I will point out all mafia and will give my life to protect the police and doctor.

Why would it get boring? When we used to play as children, or as drunks at a party, we used to have ladies and businessmen and crooks (same thing as businessmen in terms of what they do). We also had to have certain political views, like fascist and communist and capitalist and socialist. It was very fun until somebody puked on me once. Still have puke stains on my tablecloth. Such a nice tablecloth too.

Because, people on the internet has short attention span and this took 48 hours per turn.

"You can't play mafia on the internet!"
A hundred threads would like to prove you wrong.

Honestly I prefer online mafia to real life mafia, it's more about forward planning and less about just watching out for facial tics and someone dropping their poker face which honestly just makes things a little silly.
Plus you can make things exponentially more complicated.
But I'll not do that in game one ;)

But also nobody is going to want to post in the Christmas period so this isn't going to be until after new year.

There's also www.epicmafia.com but that's a different beast again to how you play mafia on forums, not such a fan of that either but some people love it.

I didn't say you couldn't, I said I didn't see how you could.
