Mafia 14: Politics of Personal Destruction Edition
« on: September 10, 2008, 10:10:48 PM »
So I thought I'd give everyone the weekend to decompress from the last game.   I've got 3 different themes in mind, and I'll put it up for a vote:

1.) Walker Texas Ranger Edition
2.) Kaiju Edition
3.)Generic Anime Edition

The one withe the most votes in the next 24 hours is the one we go with....

What's number 2 mean?


And I think I will be voting for Anime. Ronin and I already figured out my character.

nothing so formal my dear just post here with your preference, and when the time limit is up, (24 hours from my initial post)  I'll tabulate and announce the results...

'Kaiju' is the Japanese term for any giant monster movie, be it Godzilla, Gamera, etc....

Update:  Have added a poll with the now 4 choices:

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...

Lastly, is a suggestion by Jewish Carpenter:

4.) Presidential Campaign Edition:

"I know you're running the next game but I figure I'd toss this out maybe have a presidential mafia match where the mafia families are the Obama campaign and the McCain campaign killing off citizens in overly stereotypical ways. Thought I'd throw that out there although I'm not sure you'd want it to be political unless both sides were of made fun of proportionately."

Outstanding idea, JC.  That's my pick.

We should probably wait until the theme is actually decided and any rules are established before picking characters.

Well, I'd personally pick the anime version, just because it's less likely to spark an actual political debate. (No offense folks, but I find that generally  the more I know of a person's politics, the less and less that I like them.) However, if we do do a political game, may I suggest the following?

Quote
Revenge of the Also-Rans!

Oh noes!  Tragedy! At the Presidential debates due to an intern's misplaced decision to place an order from "Bob's House of Past The Expiration Date Shrimp", the Presidential candidates have been laid low! And the candidates' interns probably shouldn't have boxed up the leftovers and sent them to the Vice Presidential candidates either.

As a result, practically every person who has ever run for President and lost has decided that now is the perfect time to make a run for the Presidency! But beware! The main political parties are trying to take out these newcomers! After all, one of the Vice Presidential candidates groaned the other day.  And the other party claims that their candidate blinked once or twice! He'll be fine by inauguration day!

Rules: 1) Pick a someone who ran for either the presidency or vice presidency and lost as your avatar. Please choose either a fictional candidate or a candidate who ran more than 10 years ago. (People as less likely to get worked up about Henry Clay than they are about John Kerry.)

2) Instead of being killed, candidates are simply eliminated from the race. Fictional or not, it might be unwise to be talking about bumping off presidential candidates, especially at this time of year. I think Mike and crew would prefer not having the Secret Service drop by...

3) The roles? The Donkeys and Elephants are our Mafia families.  Informants are now "Spin Doctors" and Vigilantes... er, let's call them Liddies, I guess. You could probably pick better names than that.

Whaddya think?
