The game is played in an imaginary town where all the players live and try to survive against each other. Basically there are 3 factions in this game: 1) Mafia 2) Hustlers 3) Townies Each player belongs to one of the above factions. GAME OBJECTIVE: Your objective is to completely eliminate the other two factions and help your team win. PLAYER ROLES: There are various different roles in each faction and every player is assigned a role as per the faction he belongs to. Some of the basic and popular roles of this game are Doctor, Cop, Godfather, Kingpin etc. All roles description are always described in the game thread OP. TOWNIES: Each player in the Townie faction is alone and does not know the role of any other player or to which faction other players belong to. Each player, as per his role, will have a separate PM discussion with the game moderator where the player will inform the moderator about his next action during a "Night Phase" or even sometimes a "Day Phase". MAFIA AND HUSTLERS: Mafia and Hustlers work as separate teams and each team has its own group PM with the game moderator. Both Mafia and Hustlers discuss and plan their gameplay in their respective PMs. They also inform the moderator about their next "victim" in the group PM during a "Night Phase". GAMEPLAY: The game is played in two phases namely “Day Phase” and “Night Phase”. No player can reveal his role at any stage of the game, unless otherwise specified. All players portray and pretend themselves as a townie in the main game thread. Day Phase: A Day Phase is played in the main game thread where all players from all the 3 factions will openly discuss, debate, accuse and deduce who they suspect as a Mafiosi or a Hustler. The real Mafia and Hustler players will pretend to be a townie and try to deceive and frame their opponents. In each day phase, there is a new poll added where the most voted player will be eliminated/lynched from the game at the end of the day phase. Each player has to cast a vote (in the thread poll) against the player who they suspect the most and would like to be lynched and eliminated from the game. Night Phase: After every Day Phase, there is a Night Phase. A Night Phase is played in the PMs with the game moderator. Each player from Town’s faction will inform the moderator about their next action as per his/her role e.g. a cop would inform which player’s role he would like to know or a doctor would inform which player(s) he/she would like to save from getting targeted by Mafia/Hustler. On the other hand, the Mafia and Hustler players will discuss among themselves and inform the moderator which player they would like to kill (eliminate) in that night. RESULT: With each progressing Day and Night phase, players are eliminated, sometimes a good guy and sometimes a bad guy all subject to voting in a day phase, or the player roles and decisions players take during the two phases. A faction is declared winner when any of its players survive until the end and all opponent players from the other factions are eliminated.
