I can now imagine a game of Mafia where almost no one knows their alignment (at first), but they don't know who does and most don't know that everyone else also doesn't know.
Bellsounder Mafia kinda worked that way, where the town didn't know their wincon.

One of the assumptions was that you play perfectly (seem as 100% town) only when you don't know who you are.

So yeah.
See, it's funny, because I play a better town game as scum than I do as town.
It helps that you know exactly who scum is in those cases.q
Yes, yes it does.  And bussing ruthlessly is really, really effective, apparently.

Bellsounder Mafia kinda worked that way, where the town didn't know their wincon.
I once played a game where nobody knew their alignment at the start. Three factions were known to exist, and each player had to figure out their alignment through a series of esoteric clues given each night (Blue triangle, red square, blue square, yellow circle, etc, floating above the player's head). It was designed so that by the end of night 3 each player SHOULD know which faction they belong to, though.
Also, each death gave some information as to the nature of the esoteric clues, as similar but more complex clues would manifest whenever a player died; supposedly, these clues also let on HOW they died.

The flavor was that archeologists working together to unearth an ancient mayan temple were all possessed by the spirits residing there at night, and the spirits started to guide their bodies. Each archeologist had to figure out what their spirit wanted of them, and work with them; working against the spirit could turn out bad for the archeologist (read: they lose the game by letting the other team(s) win).

To clarify, I was asking specifically how effective you'd found bussing your teammates in terms of how many games it had won you- not really possible to bus teammates as a normal townie?

Notes: Flabort, you magnificent bastard.
;D

I have so many ideas floating around for the sequel.
More scum, for one.
A warning that the game is semi-bastard, due to the possibility of roles that make the game bastard.
Of course limiting the possible number of submissions.
Certain powers........

Is there somewhere where I can see a record of all my mafia games that I've played/threads I've posted in in that subforum?? I don't want to go through 500+ posts to find all of them.
