TRAAB and... Mafia? 12/12/2020 6pm EST

Recommended Posts

Hello hello! What’s this? Two Rooms and a BOOM? No way I love that game!! And I’m sure YOU do too! Well FEAR NOT!! This lovely little event is here to quench your deceptive and explosive needs! And, we might even play some Mafia! The instructions to each are as follows:


The rules for the game are simple- Everyone is separated into two (Discord) Voice Channels, and teams are randomly assigned, with one person being the President on the Blue team, and one person being the Bomber on the Red team. In this tense hostage situation, you can trust no one- and the elected leader of each room will send one (or more people) as a trade between rooms as people desperately try to figure out who is working for who, where the President is, and more importantly, where is the bomb?!

After 3-6 rounds of typically less than 5 minutes, the final trade occurs. If the Bomber is where the President is, the Blue team loses. If the President and the bomber are in two different rooms, then the red team loses. A more thorough explanation will be provided at game time. Games typically take less than thirty minutes, and I'm looking forward to getting as many people together as possible and getting as many rounds in as we feel like. Please post below to show your interest and help me get a good idea of the size of the crowd we'll see that day.

Instructions and Rules:


Blue Team- At the end of the game, for the President to not share a room with the bomber.

Red Team- At the end of the game, for the President to share a room with the bomber.

Gambler- At the end of the game, before the teamvictory is announced, they must predict who will win publicly. If correct, the Gambler wins with that team.

How to Play:

The group will be divided into equal groups and separated into two Discord rooms. Everyone is given a character card. This is considered secret info unless shared. A 3 minute (or longer) timer is started. The following occurs:

1. A leader is selected. The first person nominated by someone other than themselves becomes the leader of that room. Leaders may be deposed/changed by the current leader giving leadership to a willing player, or by a majority vote of confidence. You can call for the replacement leader to be yourself, unlike the original nomination of a leader. Leaders choose who hostages are each round, but cannot choose themselves. Myself and any chosen volunteers will be in rooms to verifythese changes.

2. During the 3+ minutes of the round, you converse with the people in the room with you. You may speak publicly in voice, you may show the entire room your card by announcing your color and role, or you may private message/query anyone IN your room in Discord to privately share cards or discuss teams. The rules at this time:

  • You must stay in that (discord channel) room unless you move to the other room as a hostage later.
  • If you ask to share cards, you must share cards both ways- there is no 'tricking' someone into telling you their card and not telling them back.
  • You can ONLY share cards with someone in your room. If you are later in different rooms, please refrain from messaging that person again for the duration of that game/your time in different rooms.
  • If there are 10 or more players, you may share only the color instead of the whole card (color and role). If you set up color and role, you must show color and role back.
  • You are welcome to lie, bluff, mislead, organize, etc. as much as you want, but you must be completely honest when sharing cards with someone as a trade.  (e.g. you can tell the entire room that you are blue, or you can try to get the room to share colors verbally, but if you and someone else are going to share cards, you must TELL THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH about your color and role (unless only sharing color in a 10+ person game).

3. When the round timer ends, Leaders pick 1 hostage (potentially more in a large game- I will instruct if different) to trade rooms. Leaders cannot pick themselves. When leaders have figured out who to trade, the trade happens, and a 2 minute (or longer) timer begins. The third round is 1 (or more) minutes long. More rounds, or longer rounds, may be instituted to facilitate better play in a voice server vs. a physical house as needed. You will be aware of any changes to the rules.

4. We determine who wins by having the President, the Bomber, and everyone else reveal who they are.



General Rules

1. The mafia:civilian ratio is 1:3, the Detective and Doctor do not count as civilians for this purpose.
2. The Moderator will private message everyone what their roles are, and who their partners are, if any, except for Civilians. 
3. The Doctor:civilian and detective:civilian ratio is 1:5.


Each round begins with the Moderator telling all players to mute their mics. Then, the moderator has all the mafia players decide one player to be eliminated. This should be done by direct/privately messaging the moderator (you will know who your Mafia buddies are). The moderator will then move on to the Doctor’s turn.

The Doctor(s) will privately message the Moderator who they want to save. It can be anyone, including themselves. They will decide on only one person to save. If the Doctor saves a person who has been picked to be eliminated by the Mafia, that player lives/is not eliminated. After that, the moderator will move on to the Detecive’s turn.

The Detective(s) will privately message the Moderator and decide on only one person to investigate. The moderator will inform the Detective(s) if that person is a Mafia member or a Civillian.

At the end of the Night, the Moderator will tell everyone what happened, and the Day/accusation portion of the game will commence.


After Night, the moderator will tell everyone what happened during the night. All players then debate on who they think is part of the mafia. Two players are selected to go on trial, and each player votes on one of these players to be eliminated. The player with more votes is eliminated from the game. After that, the game continues until the Civilians or Mafia win.


Mafia: the Mafia win if they eliminate Civilians until there are less Civilians than Mafia.

Civilians: the Civilians win if they eliminate all the Mafia.
