    The moderator will tell everyone playing to go to sleep (close their eyes). The moderator will go around the circle of people and tap people on the head based on the role in the game the moderator thinks they should play.
    1. Tap on the head: Informant
    2. Tap on the head: Mafia
    3. If you didn't get tapped then you are an innocent person.
      1. Games with 6-10 people playing should have 1 informant and 1 mafia member.
      2. Games with 10-15 people playing should have 3 informants and 2 mafia members.

    Next comes "Open Kill". Basically what happens here is anyone in the game can nominate someone else in the game to be killed out of the game.
    1. Once someone has been nominated, someone else has to agree and second him. Once the person has been seconded that person is now "on trial".
      1. The first person to nominate the person "on trial" has to give their reason for nominating him or her. Then the person who seconded the person "on trial" has to give their reason.
      2. The person that is on trial has the opportunity to give their defense. The defense can be as long as the person wants it to be, and another person may come to another person’s defense.
      3. Next it is time to vote to see if the person is killed or not. If the majority wants the person to live, than that person will stay alive, and if the majority wants that person to be voted off, then they are dead for the round.
        • After a person dies, the moderator can tell everyone what the person was in the game.
    2. This process will continue until someone is voted off.
    3. If a person is voted for and survives, that person is immune to being killed until the next open kill. Someone in each round must be voted off. If everyone is voted for and no one dies, then the night comes and no one died during the day.

    You can't say something like, "If I die in the night "Steve" is mafia. This is unfair because if the person who said that does die, then poor Steve looks like the mafia. But is the person who said that doesn't get killed, it will look like "Steve" is trying to hide something.

Things You'll Need

  1. At least 7 people, one person to be the moderator.
  2. Good defenses. You need to act like a lawyer.
