What is Mafia? Sometimes called Werewolf, it's a fun party game of accusations and conspiracy. If you haven't had the pleasure of playing this charmingly devious game at a convention or on another web forum, there's a fun Flash animation here to help you understand the rules.
I'll be moderating a Game of Thrones-themed Mafia game here on the GeekDad Community. If you're interested in joining in, all you have to do is sign up below.

So far, we have:
That sounds like fun, count me in!
Hi please add me to the game - sounds great!
Ok, we have 9 people! Just 3 more and we'll get started! Please spread the word. I think this is going to be a lot of fun.
Count me in
And just like that, we have our twelve!
I'll send out the randomized roles to everyone later tonight and we can get this show on the road.
Ok, folks. I'm about to send out the roles via private message. Remember: keep these secret! If you're a member of the Lannisters, you don't want the goody-two-shoes Starks to know about it, because they'll be gunning for you through the whole game!
Here's the full list of rules to keep in mind while playing:
Across the Narrow Sea and the Red Waste, Daenerys Targaryen stands in the city of Qarth, before the trader Quhuru Mo. Her mouth is agape and her pulse is racing.
"Dead?" she asks, not allowing herself to believe it.
"Yes, Khaleesi," the Summer Islander says. "Killed in a tragic hunting accident. But as always in Westeros, foul play is guaranteed."
Ser Jorah Mormont, her closest advisor, nods. "Westeros is in chaos, with executions left and right as various houses vie for the throne or for justice over the Usurper's death."
King Robert is dead, Dany thinks. And his Kingdoms in ruin. The time has come for me to take back what is mine...
FYI, this is what a role message will look like:
Welcome to the game! You are King Robert Baratheon.
You helped destroy the Targaryen dynasty and became king. You've grown fat and lascivious and continually worry about the Targaryen children who survived coming back to the Seven Kingdoms to take your throne. And, unfortunately, you've just died while on a hunt, you great drunken oaf. Way to go.
Abilities:You may vote during the day.
Win Condition:You win when all threats to your kingdom have been eliminated.
Please confirm in the main thread when you have received and read this.
Note that Robert Baratheon is not actually in this game, seeing as he is dead. :)
Oh, and once I receive confirmations from everyone, the first day will begin. With 12 of you alive at that point, it will take 7 votes to lynch someone.
Confirming receipt of my role.
