Are you ready to Party?? Because Party Mafia (also known as Drunk Mafia) is ready for you! I think.

Here's how it works:
From the Games page you can access the Party Mafia page from which you can access current parties or start a party. If you start a party, you're the moderator for the whole party. You can choose from list of Party setups (see below), and once you have enough people you can start a game. When that game finishes, you can change the setup if you want, and start another game.

There is a single Party thread in which anyone can post and all games for that Party take place. There is also a single Mafia thread; while there's a game on those who shouldn't see them will not be able to see the posts from that game.

The game does not enforce deadlines; that's up to the mod, who can trigger a random lynch. In games with Nights, they can also trigger the start of the new day.

The moderator can also play. Obviously if they do play they can't access any information they shouldn't, but they can still be contacted through Help Threads, and they are still responsible for deadlines and replacing players.

Aside from Vanilla Nightless, which is self-explanatory and has a variable player count, the Party setups currently available are: Mini Mafia (which was formerly run as a Rated setup), Dethy and Crush Nightless. Feel free to suggest/request more.

I'm hoping we can work out a time to try this out. It'd be cool if someone like shraeye or raerae ran it so you could let me know what you think of that aspect of it.

shraerae... I recall you had a bunch of Drunk Mafia setups somewhere but I can't seem to find the link to them. Could you remind me how to access them please?

I went here:
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Category:Micro_Setups
To get a good idea of options. 
Some I just copy/pasted (like Star-Crossed and Venge)
Others I kinda tinkered with; off the top of my head, I can't remember where I put my list of ideas though :(  Star-Crossed is nice, because it is very scaleable.  You have to be careful with Venge, I have a few variations for more players (and one for 4 I think) trying to balance as much as possible.

Oh thanks, I actually found what I was looking for: the survey at the start of one of the Drunk Mafia threads. I think we have a reasonable starting point so I'm not itching to add more, but if there are some that are wanted in particular I'm more than happy to add them.

That was you!! I got a notification that it had been taken recently and was extra confused.

Haha I wondered if that might happen. I took it to see if I could see the results, but I couldn't. Were they interesting?

Not terribly, six respondents and the answers were all fairly spread out, mostly ranking each scenario 3-5, nothing was a clear winner.

We've just finished a game of Less Pressure, so if you want in on the next one, now's the time.

Also, assuming those with unconfirmed signups reconfirm, we only need 1 more for Dice Mafia and 3 more for 2d3.

Also, shraeye is thinking of hosting Party Mafia some time in 10-19 December.

I also made some custom setups. “Never Trust a Cop” is probably balanced enough to be playable and only takes 7 players. They’re not ambitious.

Are you saying it's good for a Party game, or a general Custom game? I'm happy to look at adding it to the Party roster.

Gold+ Members can now create Flavors for their Custom games and Rated games.

A Flavor involves Alignment Flavors (eg change the name, colour etc of each alignment), Role Flavors (eg give roles character names, set their role message text etc) and Flavor Texts (ie text to accompany events such as lynches under particular circumstances).

You can create multiple Flavors for your Custom setups. Each time you create a game with that setup, you can choose which Flavor to use (or to use none).

When you create a Flavor for a Rated setup, pending being approved by an admin, it enters the rotation of Flavors to be used for games of that setup.

I've still got a bit of fixing up to do, and haven't written any instructions, but if you create a Flavor for Less Pressure it does a lot of the work for you, so you should hopefully have some idea of what's going on. Click on the "Flavors..." button on the setup page for Less Pressure.

I don't really want to play Blitz games, but it seems we are hovering just below the player count needed to start normal games.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

We have enough for Less Pressure, just waiting for a few people to reconfirm their signup (anyone else can jump in though). It'd be great to get a few more for 2d3 or a Custom game.

2d3 seems much more likely to start sometime soon.

shraeye, or someone else too  busy to play, would you be interested in modding the next Less Pressure so I can play? Basically just need to be there to answer questions.
