sok, I think this is the information you are looking for:

If you are interested in hosting any game on these boards, however, this will need to be scheduled privately with your friendly Games Moderator.


Dragonator said:

If you are interested in hosting a Mafia game, then you will need to contact the Games Moderator (Dragonator) privately. Hosting a Mafia game is a big responsibility, and permission to host will not be granted lightly. If you want to seriously be considered as a future game host, you need to have displayed your competence at Mafia game playing in several games, have a clear understanding of the rules and the role a host plays in the game, and to have demonstrated your ability to show deep thinking and imagination in crafting a fun and exciting game to play. You then need to provide a game summary to the Games Regulator, outlining your idea in such a way that it does not give away any crucial plot details or prevents anyone who reads it from playing the game. You will be required to invest a lot of time and effort into creating character roles and building scenery and sets for the game. Lastly, the game will need to be produced in an aesthetically pleasing and professional manner. It must be carefully planned and well executed to make the game enjoyable for the players.

If you take a hosting slot and aren't ready when your time comes around you will be moved to the end of the list after discussion with the Games Regulator.

The first post of the Mafia Games index goes into more detail, but basically you need to: have played in several games already to show you know your stuff, have the free time for about two months to actually host it, and you need a a solid idea, of course. Then you PM Dragonator with your pitch [don't put things in the pitch that would spoil the game for the reader].

Actually, you'll need more than two months. A lot more. If you get put on the list, it'll probably take about ten months to get to your turn, which should give you enough time. While you're waiting, you should build your sets, plan out the game so that it is completely ready, and be prepared to put aside a lot of time when the game is actually being played.

Not to mention that, like hewkii said, you should have a solid idea before asking Draggy to host.

Good luck if you plan to host. Posted Image

Thank you everyone for responding so quickly, I've already got an idea floating around in my head, I'm going to take some time to make all the characters and the story before I contact Dragonator though.  I'll give you guys a hint though, it's about SW.

Hogwarts had people new to the games. For Matn, ADHO16, Lord Arjay, Oky Wan Kenobi, IlikePi, it was their first games. And many people were in it for a second time, such as sok117/hewkii9, badboytje88. So I complete disagree that any Mafia game penalizes new players.

Plus, why would it be fare to stop veterans from entering in a game. I've been denied entry in games before, but all you need do is wait till the next one.

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.

This has actually been discussed before, many months ago, but nothing has been implemented yet. If there is sufficient continued interest in Mafia however, then I will be looking at allowing for a series of "Junior League" games aimed at beginners. Hopefully the turn out for the next Mafia game will give me some idea of whether there are enough dedicated forum members to allow for this or not.  :wink:

Zepher approached me with a unique game concept, and I'm happy to let that be a bit of a filler while some of the people on the list prepare themselves, rather than having a 3 month gap.

As a member who has been in many mafia games my opinion on Begginer mafia games or whatever, is that they will not be needed for a while. At the moment around 50 or so people sign up I think and then around 21 get into a game which is little less than half. I say that there should first of all be a rule that you must have X number of posts which would prove that you can be dedicated to playing. This would eliminate any people who sign up for the sake of it and aren't interested a month later. Also a beginners mafia will probably just turn out terrible with some players being completely inactive, others being silly and not taking there roles seriously. Also those would all mean that the ones wanting to play properly have a ruined experience and put them off mafia games. So for now I say leave the system as it is, but in the future when the amount of people signing up for a mafia game is far too many then we could just start to run two games at a time.

Oh and if you don't mind me asking Zepher, what is Your mafia game about?

That would be a very interesting mafia game indeed. If that's not Zepher's idea, you should try to do that! I'd sign up for sure.

Why not make Wargames and Mafia a forum that requires a certain number of posts, say, 50, before you can actually post in it? I'm not sure if it is already, but I feel like that would work.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think there have been people signing up to mafia games with more than 50 posts, who haven't really played actively. I think the answer is just the careful selection of players into a game by the host. Sandy's requirement to answer two simple questions provides a nice first selection mechanism already.
