I assure you that none of my games are rigged. I have a suspicion that other moderators do not assign roles randomly, but ALL of my roles are randomly assigned.

I'm not going to say since it is just a feeling and I don't want to stir up controversy. In fact, there is nothing really that says a mod HAS to assign roles randomly, but I believe if a mod doesn't then the integrity of the game may be compromised if the mod is good buddies with some of the players.

So, about that five bucks you owe me... Just give me a good role in the game instead... :wink:

I voted that 3-5 is a good number to have at any one time. The reason I voted the way I did is mainly because we don't have a seperate forum for mafia games on this forum. That, and I'm very tempted to join half the games that are started.

Same here, my roles are all randomly assigning, and usually from now on I'm going to try to get someone to check the set-up to see if it's balanced.

Just out of idle curiosity, how do you determine if the roles are balanced or not? Is there some sort of precedent or guide or what not on mafiascum, or do you just kinda eyeball it and say something like 'that looks like a town turkey shoot, maybe the mafia need a godfather'?

Basically what you just said.

Something I like to do is add or subtract Vanilla townie roles until it looks right. I go through possible scenarios in my head and weigh in what could happen before going through with a set up.

Either that, or if your not good at that yet, like me, you ask someone for a review at Mafiascum, there is a thread for it.

I would imagine that putting the game together could potentially be more fun (or at least less day-to-day hassle) than the game itself...

And auto, I'm very much looking forward to your next game... should be a laugh. (of course, having said that, I'll probably get killed on night 2 or lynched on day 1... :lol: )

Putting together the game is great. And even better when you fill it with non-vannila roles.
