Game Concept Thread

The popular forum game that separates the good from the bad, the strong from the weak, and the loose-cannon cops from the slightly schizophrenic. That's all after we figure out who's who, of course.

I did decided to make more changes to my idea and add a couple things such as balance

Bowser’s Mafia Attacks the Mushroom Kingdom

Cardflip
20 Players
Role Use is Optional

There’s trouble in the Mushroom Kingdom, after all of bowser’s failed attempts to take over the mushroom kingdom, he came up with a new plan, a plan that involved the idea of a mafia. So he decided to gather some of his troops and form a mafia to take over the mushroom kingdom, Mario and luigi were informed of this by a toad that overheard their plan from afar, they were also informed that the mafia that bowser created are masters of disguise so they have to try to be careful if they want to take down bowser’s mafia. The kongs also found out about this and ended up being involved as well, but are working on a different plan. so with that, Mario and Luigi and a few of the others get ready to take down Bowser’s mafia and save the Mushroom Kingdom once again.

Bowser's Mafia

Bowser:He’s the one who’s leading his Mafia, and he cardflips green, lynch votes count as 2, and he’s immune to night kills. Discusses with his mafia who to kill.
Bowser Jr.:He can block one player’s ability each night, and if bowser dies, his lynch votes count as 2. Discusses with the other mafia who to kill.
Potion Bro: This hammer bro learned to use throwing potions and how to brew them, and therefore is able to paint a player green, red, blue, or orange, each night but can only use each color once. Discusses with the other mafia who to kill.(Painting only affects the player the following day phase, but they'll still show their original color if inspected, and painting will wear off at the end of the day phase.)
Koopatrol:can ram someone with the spike on his head each night, injuring them, causing them to not be able to speak the next day phase. Discusses with the other mafia who to kill.

The Mushroom Town
Mario: Since he’s very familiar with bowser and his minions, he can find out the color of someone each night.
Luigi: Can convince one person of their choice to change their vote to someone else of their choice, If Mario dies, lynch votes count as two.
Peach: Can use a starman to protect someone from being killed each night phase.
Bomb Toad: Can blast someone with a bomb every night but loses ability for 2 nights if he kills someone from The Mushroom town
Yoshi: Has no special abilities but knows who Birdo is.
Birdo: Has no special abilities but knows who Yoshi is.
Toad: No special abilities, participants in daily lynching
Toad
Toad
Toad
Toad
Toad

Mysterious Toad: This Toad acts rather nervous or suspicious at times even though he’s innocent, he doesn’t know that he’s the Mysterious Toad, and cardflips red.

The Kongs

Donkey Kong: Can bash someone over the head with his fists each night, killing them. He's also immune to night kills. Knows who the other kongs are.
Diddy Kong: Can distract someone each night, distracting them too much to use their ability. Knows who the other kongs are.
Dixie Kong: Can use a magical banana during a night to revive one of their dead teammates, but can only do it once, knows who the other kongs are.

WIN CONDITIONS:
Bowser’s Mafia: Have at least Mario dead and outnumber the town, and the Kongs
The Mushroom Town: Take down all of Bowser’s Mafia and The Kongs
The Kongs: Be the last team remaining

For what reason are you allowing lynch retractions? The Mafia rules state that votes can't be retracted. We may look into making an exception if it's vital to the game's mechanics or design, but not if you're just adding it in.

Really, whether or not votes are retractable tends to have very little effect on how people play. The only example of I can think of where someone used Unvoting as a strategy was a Jester. They retracted their vote right before the deadline, so that they'd have the most votes and by lynched by default*. It would have probably worked, except the deadline was actually later then they thought.

*they were tied with another player for votes, and no-one in that group had even heard of knife-boxing, so ties meant a lack of lynches.

Well I'm glad that you guys like it but is there anything I can do to make it better and likely to get voted? I'm really tired of the meme mafia games as they're so much more confusing.

Unfortunately, while hosting is a matter of public voting, meme games are going to have an advantage.

If only there were some other way to decides hosts.

We already have a low enough general number of mafia players left on this forum. It takes a few days to get to 18-20 players. Anyway, that's not something I'm willing to change. In this case, bigger won't be better.

On this forum we only played like 2 meme games.

Also, would you prefer it if they had more vanilla role names? I honestly think that the "memes" add a fair bit of personality.

The only problem is that the "memes" and their "personality" are really all that drive it. People are only willing to vote and participate in one because "hurr durr memes", and when they actually play the game, they either play lazily, don't take the game seriously, or they don't even play at all and go inactive. One of my biggest problems with these meme games is that it's practically a guaranteed win during voting, which means you're seeing the same people host over and over again and not getting that much variety. Even still, the memes grow a bit old.
Mafia/Werewolf are pretty much just that, and while people have their own variations, and some are pretty interesting, I don't think making a Mafia game based around the people of this forums is a particularly good idea, because it's mostly running off of in-jokes, and that's all it has going for it. If you washed it out and made it look like a normal Mafia game, I don't think it would have garnered as many votes as they do, because it seems people don't genuinely care about the gameplay itself, they just care about what wacky names the roles have.
Not to snuff out the creativity or anything, but I feel like the meme games need to stop becoming a staple, because once the current generation of Mafia players have passed, they're not going to follow around the same old memes. I think Mafia needs to be taken a little more seriously around here, at least so it becomes enjoyable to play and participate in, but then again that also includes the implementation of rules that shun people that go inactive.

They add personality, but they add confusion & make the games hard to follow. Whenever we play a game that doesn't use vanilla role names, one team or the other gets totally dominated. Most of the time, during these games, anyone I talked to had no idea what was going on - even those who were paying attention!
