Title: Mafia - Future game ideas etc
Post by: Tripe on August 12, 2008, 09:14:32 AM
OK to stop the purgatory thread from getting clogged up i thought it might be useful to decamp all the discussions about theams and the like to a new thread.

Have at it :)

Western Mafia or Jane Austen Mafia.

See I'd be up for Jane Austen's Mafia, if somebody could work out how to do that. :)

I call Al Swearengen for Western mafia, with the understanding that I would be able to swear to my heart's content in the game.

I really think it's just up to the GM of the game to decide what theme they want.  I like it better when it's a surprise.  I wish I had refrained from stating the current theme until after people signed up.  Plus the theme really isn't that crucial to the game.  I dislike how people are using fake theme based reasoning to vote for people instead of using logic and observation.  Just my two cents.

Well yes, but it seems people like talking about it and it was filling up the purgatory thread.

Incidentally I've already thought of the "people acting out of character, they must be mafia" reasoning in my game and I think it'll be nullified.

Agreed.

I could do without the role-playing aspect altogether.  It's sort of fun in its own right, but not very mafia-ey.

Thirded.

As much fun as it would be to host a Hollywood-themed Mafia game, I've been staying out of most of the role-playing Mafia games.  I took part in the MST3k one, sure, but that's only because I chose somebody who had no personality.  One downside to the games is that it scares away people who don't know the themes of the games that well (like, say, me), and people tend to vote based on how well they can roleplay a character.  Namely, "Leela voted off Nibbler!  She'd never do that!  I vote for Leela!"

The roleplaying thing works great for the first few rounds, when it makes grasping at straws more entertaining, anyway.  But as the game drags on?  Naaaaah.

I don't see any legitimate reason why we have to confine ourselves to one game at a time.  Perhaps we need two... a themed game and a regular one.
Title: Re: Mafia - Future game ideas etc
Post by: whthat on August 12, 2008, 05:08:16 PM
I enjoy the RP aspects for the recent games.  To me the people who go over the top with their playing adds to the game.

I agree that it could be a little more interesting to have a theme (such as Monsters) rather then shows.
Title: Re: Mafia - Future game ideas etc
Post by: James of LinHood on August 13, 2008, 03:42:50 AM
I'd like a Movie Monsters Mafia game.

Would that include slasher "monsters" such as Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers?  If so, I'd really like to see this theme happen.


EDIT - Yes, I realize that both of these characters are mute but there are still creative ways one could use them in a Mafia game.

A loose theme isn't a bad idea, but having everyone pick individual rules gets really confusing.   If you wanted to have the 2 games running at once I'd be happy to run the normal one provided I got to play once in a while.

I wouldn't mind hosting normal games once in awhile, but I think everyone would hate having me as GM because I'm a hardass about playing by the rules and would insist on the authority to eject offenders from the game.

Hey Tripe, do you still have the ambition of hosting a Buffyverse themed game? Last night, while tweaking Game 15, I thought of a new idea pending a host and story we hadn't discussed.

I'll sign-up and run it for Game 16 if Tripe or anyone doesn't object.

I don't believe anyone signed up for anything past the present game I'm hosting. I'll be more than open to hosting back-to-back games.

It gives me time to wipe the blood off my hands from being Mafia the past 3 games.  ;)

As for what I've in mind for the Buffy game is....

It should be a crazy ride.

I agree with Dim on how silly it can be for people to assume that you're totally playing in-character and that it's tied to whether you're mafia or not (as the "Leela" in the example, I knew I was doomed in that game!).

I don't know if I could keep up with 2 mafia games at the same time, but it might be fun to do.  I do like the roleplaying, though, because it gives me a chance to (1) do something out-of-character without it seeming that I'm being out-of-character, and (2) be more goofy than usual for a change.

I'm just waiting for Game 30....  If we keep with the Roman numeral numbering of the games, we'll have to have a porn-based theme.  ;) (No, that was not direcctly my offering to moderate it, either  ;D)

Negative, my friend.

I should have placed a disclaimer next to the frame from Tabula Rasa that it doesn't have any significance in the story I'm creating. I just arbitrarily chose that frame to represent Buffy stemming from it being my all-time favorite frame from the entire 8 seasons to date. 

If I was playing the Buffy game, it would be Oz or Gachnar.

Even though I've only played one round, I like the role-playing aspects of the mafia games. I like getting into a character. Unfortunately, taking on a persona contributes to me not wanting to be a part of games where I'm unfamiliar with the subject.

But if we're playing porn mafia I am absolutely 100% there.

Title: Re: Mafia - Future game ideas etc
Post by: Thom_Serveaux on October 17, 2008, 06:32:59 PM
Just to keep things moving along, I'll repost 3 of my theme ideas...

1.)  Walker Texas Ranger Edition: The Chinese Tongs and the South American Cartels are in a turf war over the Dallas Metroplex, with the Texas rangers in the crossfire....

2.) Kaiju (Giant Rubber Monster) Edition:  The Aliens of Planet X have once again begun to try and control the residents of monster island, this time a renegade Earth Scientist  has simlar designs for Global Domination.  Tokyo's Insurance rates are sure to skyrocket...

3.) Generic Anime Edition: You thought that Anime was make-believe?  Ha! you wish!  Some diabolical shadowy figures have designs to conquer their creator's reality.  Only the combined forces of good, (and not so good)  will have a chance to stop them...


and this time, I won't be plaged by technical issues that forced me to step down as GM for Mafia 14

But things can change, the idea came to me this morning while Daughtry was on my work's radio.

I'm such a goober when it comes to Idol. I love it too much.

Post by: TeamRAD on November 28, 2008, 05:38:57 AM

Okay, I'm going to sign-up to host Game XVII. I actually have the game all mapped out while I was scribbling and stuff earlier this morning, and the American Idol theme is intact. With that in mind, with the interactive nature of the show, I really want to incorporate that aspect into this particular game...as I'm even going to be having Round Table members, who aren't playing it, be involved in some capacity (I know exactly how I'm doing that, too). Oh...and as for the roleplaying aspect of it, I'll give everyone a vote, prior to signups, of selecting a singer from the Top 24 from any of the seven seasons to date, or to roleplay as yourself.

Anyhoo, this should be a ton of fun...theme weeks will be involved for the citizen vote rounds...and the judges will be critiquing your posts!  ;)

The singers available would've to be from any of the Top 24's from the past seven seasons. There's a cornucopia of great singers/characters to choose from. For example, here's the Top 12 from the funtastic fifth season of Idol...

http://www.americanidol.com/contestants/season5/

There's 7 in the above group that make me giggle just thinking of them.

I guess I could be Kellie Pickler. She's almost Paula Abdul crazy.

Amanda, what's a ballsy?  :D

She was craptacular, and I so remember dying from laughter with the Worsters in regards to her "Bohemian Rhapsody" performance. That was one for the ages.

If I were to choose a singer for this game, it would be tough...I loved the sass of Noriega and the OG, Kevin Covais, delivered my all-time favorite Idol performance (Part Time Lover)...but in the end, I'd choose the penis with ears, Daughtry, and have fun w/ his ginormous ego.

And I'm so hoping someone chooses...

Ooh. I love that idea. And some of my favorite [AS] characters are already taken. There's lots more, though. I actually enjoy every non-anime show that's been on Adult Swim. (aside from one or two of their, "It failed on the WB, let's try it here!" attempts)

Maybe Lokar.. Or Fitz.. Or Coach McGuirk.. Ooh. Master Shake. Or Dad. Or Captain Murphy. Or the Robot Chicken Mad Scientist. Or Dan Halen, or Killface or Murderface, or Model Robot! or Drinky Crow... Or Xavier! Or Dr. Steve Brule. Or the Mayor. Or the Devil! Or Orel Puffington! Or Jailbot! Sanchez?


Gonna need a few days to ruminate on this one. Lucky there's another game going on and I'm still alive in it. :^)

Also a Captain N theme would ROCK. I'd offer to host it, but I'm afraid my mornings/late night schedule might make for shoddy gamemasterness.

I gotcha.  Ok then I'll take Game 19, right?

I'll sign-up to host Game 21. It's going to be a political one and your host for it (well, at the moment) will be:

God I hate that man. 

Seriously though I think we should put a moratorium on signing up for future games after this one.

So officially the next games are

17 - anias.jude
18 - Team_RAD
19 - YoohooRiffer
20 - Jimmy of Linhood
21 - Team_RAD
30 - Lberia *

And let's wait until the 21st game is going till we begin calling future games, huh?  Otherwise we'll have this giant list that we'll never get through.  Plus I think it's healthy to have a break from mafia once and awhile.

Considering breaks in between games, the past 2 games I hosted took approximately seven or so weeks to complete the rosters. I guess my themes weren't too interesting...oh well. :)

God, the urge to kick a little paper football through those pudgy fingers is so hard to ignore....

I would have liked to have popped in for the game (as Olbermann, too lazy to switch accounts), had the game stuck around.  But no big, really.  Maybe at some point I'll pop into the actual Mafia game, get back into the swing of things.

That's exactly what I had in mind, basehart.  :)

Toss 25 Round Table members into a house and watch the fun erupt...I really wanna play it, too!

I'm taking a similar approach w/ the Idol game whereas I'm not going to have the players choose contestants from the eight seasons of the show. Seacrest & the judges will be there, but I thought it would be neat to have the players vying for the Idol title as themselves.

I'll post the sign-up for Game XVIII sometime next week w/ the hopes of having it start by the end of March. ;)

Note about game XX:

Game XX will have a Dresden Files theme (The novels, not the short lived TV series, of course).  I'm just letting you know way ahead of time so those of you who are interested in the books can read through a couple of them before the game starts.   :)

I know that some people hate roleplaying while others really like it.  Therefore, in an effort to encourage more people to sign up, picking a character and roleplaying will be completely optional.  Just be sure to put [No character] next to your name when you sign up.

Sorry Tripe but I've changed my mind.  My game will no longer be Dresden Files themed.

Although that game would be fun for the few of us who have read the novels, it wouldn't be that fun for the many that have not.

So, in an attempt to go with a more well known theme, game 20's theme will be....

(http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa229/DarthRageFist/Lost.jpg)

Again, you don't have to choose a character and/or roleplay.  That's still completely optional.  There will be a few characters that you won't be able to pick.  The Smoke Monster, Jacob, Dr. Marvin Candle (Dharma orientation guy), and Christian Shepard are off limits, among others.

Anyway, see y'all in game 20!

Weasel's entire catalog is a staple of mine, but My Brain Hurts just clicked w/ me like no other album has or will for that matter. The title track, "Guest List", Cindy's on Methadone", "Slogans", "The Science of Myth", "Veronica Hates Me"...the entire album is a goldmine of good times, and the central reason why I adore the genre of pop-punk as much as I do. They'll forever be my favorite band, and they're truly one of the greats.

Make it Homestar Runner themed!  The early adopters could get the cool characters (Strong Bad, Homestar, The Cheat), later adopters have to settle for the lame characters (Coach Z, The King of Town), and the REALLY late people have to go for the REALLY lame characters (Crack Stuntman, Senor Cardgage, Reynold)

I don't want to piss on anybody's Wheaties, but I really wish we could have just a regular old game of mafia once in a while.  The role playing stuff has its moments, but it mostly serves to confuse the hell out of everybody and make people not take the game very seriously.

That said, dibs on Glass Joe.

Come now, I thought your portrayal of the Hostess Cherry Fruit pie was brilliant.  Clever use of a catchphrase (Hello.  I am a pie.) cemented you as the breakout character of that game.  Until you were eaten.

How about TV cops? That could be fun.

While themes are fun, sometimes it will cause people unfamilliar to said theme to be reluctant to join.  That's why I was thinking of  doing a more generic overall theme, similar to what Team RAD's doing.  My initial premise is sort of loosely based on the videogame franchise Viewtiful Joe, the movies Tron, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and maybe  The Last Action Hero as well as the whole 'What If?'comic series from Marvel.  That  being that there exists a reality where absolutely any and every type of fictional character exists and interacts with one another.  That includes TV shows, Movies Comic books, Videogames,  Anime, Literature (including webcomics) Cartoons, Etc...

This way anyone who wants to play Mafia can be his or her favorite fictional character.  This will not only encourage participation, but hopefully foster the desire to roleplay and otherwise 'get into character', which is much easier to do if its a character that you're familiar with...

Never seen it either but I remember reading that a favourite author of mine was featured as a throw away plot device ages ago so I'd just be him. :)

Well since sign-ups for XXIV are up and running, I'll have more time to craft the plot of my very own Mafia game.  That and I too find it more enjoyable to play if I can get 'into character' somewhat.  So I'll be sitting this one out.  I however, call dibs on 25th, or 'Silver Anniversary Edition' of Mafia.  The theme will be ...



...a secret for the time being.  ;D 


Suffice it to say that it may more or less generally be along the lines of what Sharktopus was referring to earlier..

Post by: Thom_Serveaux on April 30, 2010, 10:08:58 PM
Oh, and I almost forgot...

I came across this little tidbit over on the Wkik doing 'research' for a potential idea that flopped:

The Airwolf  helicopter

The flying Airwolf helicopter was actually a Bell 222, serial number 47085, sometimes unofficially called a Bell 222A.[2] During filming of the series, the helicopter was owned by Jetcopters, Inc. of Van Nuys, California.[3]

The helicopter was eventually sold after the show ended and became an ambulance helicopter in Germany, where it crashed in a thunderstorm and was destroyed on June 6, 1992, killing all three crew members.[4]

Okay seriously though, I tried (and failed) at starting a thread for the whole 'sexual innuendo' in movie dialog thing.  Maybe some of you saw it, though from the reaction, or should I say lack of reaction, it wasn't as popular as I thought.  Then again, maybe I'm just paranoid.  So should I give it another go?,
