    This thread is just a general chat section for Mafia, Drafts and BOTB - Mainly to discuss future games and themes etc.

    This also might be a good idea for newbies who have never played before to find out what it's all about too.

    --------

    Ever since I watched the new Star Wars movie I've been thinking we need to do another one of those - maybe with more characters from the newer films involved.

    I've also had ideas about a Stranger Things themed one but not sure how much our regular participants would know about that show.

    Aye I reckon in the Winter break would be an good time for a Mafia game..

    Think @borobob said he wanted to try a variation we'd never tried before. Maybe he could get a sign up thread up and running..

    The less said about that dreadful excuse of a film and the new characters the better, may as well call it politically correct Mafia :55:

    I have * zero ideas about stranger things, but happy to play any sort tbh, they are all run very well! Will look to host another game of thrones one some point next year!

    Whens the next draft coming?

    I liked it :)

    Aye was gonna say another Game of Thrones one would be good, plenty of characters for us to have a choice of 2 roles as well..

    Fitbaw Draft just whenever someone sets up a thread mate. I think most will be looking at after new year before getting involved in anything though.

    I'm ready for another Mafia

    The Wire might be a good theme if anyone's saw it, what with the different seasons focusing on different characters

    Never seen it mate but would play it regardless.

    Other themes I thought of the other day were Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead - anything with a lot of characters would work really..

    I think the choice of 2 different roles/characters makes things a lot better as well rather than being assigned one. Plus the discards give us a starting point.

    I was going to say breaking bad as well actually

    Yeah 2 options is my favourite I think, I like it better than the mix of 3 version

    It's good to see how well Mafia has taken off with a committed group regularly being part of that and even taking turns to run these, with new themes and increasing complications.

    I do have plans to run a Celtic themed ORG in the new year, although I've recently made a commitment meaning that it will probably not be until the end of January at the earliest. Think that people that have become regulars of Mafia would be very well suited for this, when it happens, but it is different and anyone is welcome. However, for there will be a limit of 11 players for the first season of this.

    Also, am more than happy to have anyone that wishes to have a go at running a BotB or Songquest in the interum. With these other plans and commitments would be more than happy to participate but could not see myself being able to dedicate the time to organizing and running another season of this for a couple of months at the very least.

    Happy holidays.

    Can't remember but it was something to do with the Aliens, as I said why would you pick Alien when they only have one faction kill etc.,

    I'm sure I recall Taz saying him and Pinstripe had a new game planned for the new year, so I don't think it's Mafia related..
