CONSPIRACY!  Clearly a Mafia tactic.  You out yourself too early, I am sure that we fine townsfolk will prevail.

Why, I never!  I was going to suggest a no-lynch day 1, but if you're going to be like that, I Vote: mail-mi.

The main reason why there's no point in banning cards (aside from them being well balanced overall) is that in general the availabilty and accessibility is the same for every card and each player. In games where cards have been banned by the community (like Agricola for example) it's mostly a matter of individual cards being unique and only available to the player who happens to draw them.

Not necessarily. If there's something overcentralising in a game, it can often be removed to improve balance and enjoyment. Like even in magic formats that allow proxies, things like Black Lotus are banned, because they're too powerful.

As an extreme example, say there was a card costing $5, which read "Roll two dice, +VPs equal to that roll, the game ends." Now I'd say most of the time that's in the game, whoever can buy and play that first is going to win. Both players have equal access to it, but if it were an official card, should it be allowed in tournaments? I'd say probably not, it's too dominating and almost uncounterable.

On the other furniture, your example Dominion card doesn't exist.  I think banning should be discussed in the context of extant cards, not in theoretical OP cards.

do you know Tables? :P

No, but that name -was- the inspiration for my own.  I was reading the guild preview, saw his username, and decided if we had tables we must need chairs.

Hi chairs! I think you will enjoy this game. If you are interested as a newer player there is also another game that you may be interested in playing.

It is a simplified form of forum mafia with only 9 players and pretty standard roles. http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=8297.0 Join in if you are interested and welcome to the community!

Thanks :)  I haven't played Mafia for quite a while, but I'm pretty familiar with the concept.  I think playing with folks that understand/enjoy Dominion means it should be hilariously backstabby.  I've /in'd your game as well ^_^
