    Yeah I've been wanting to do this real life forever.

    I think it would be a *great* game to play in an office setting, assuming no one was immature enough to take it personally, which, obviously does happen in mafia sometimes :zaru

    Has anyone ran a game that is a bunch of small factions?

    I've been toying around with a game design for a few months and am curious if something like that's been done before so I can read over how it went.

    My current game idea is leaning towards 5-7 factions depending on number of players.

    There would be a mix of compatible and incompatible win cons between factions. So trying to figure out who you can and can't work with would be part of the sluthing.

    Cool cool. I played in some of those, which is part of what gave me the idea.

    Now to try and find a slot of time to put the game that won't overlap with a bunch. :p

    In a well balanced game, how many kills do you all thing there should be, proportionate to the number of players?

    this completely depends on a lot of other factors like how much protection and stuff there is and in general the powerlevel of your game and what you want the flow of it to be like

    Right, but we can probably assume something like the possibility of a quarter of the game being killed off in the first phase is extreme.

    So there's probably a healthly upper limit for the "worst case senerio" number of kills per cycle.

    What I do is add all the kills I expect to happen each cycle, plus the lynch, plus kills that don't always happen (multiplied by a corresponding fraction). Then I divide the number of players by that number. The result is then multiplied by an arbitrary number (I go with 1.5, but this isn't scientific) to account for failed kills and vigs/indies who die early. This gives me the projected length of the game. If it's a good number like 8-10 cycles, I greenlight it.

    That is only in terms of game length, though. A different factor is mafia's and town's individual kill ability. If town/indies have a lot of kills and mafia is only killing once per night in a 30+ player game, chances are this is a game of luck that is decided by the vigs. Give mafia more kills, or make a second mafia (and if you make a second mafia, add more mafia members to each team).
