I'm thinking of hosting a Mafia game with a Zombie twist.
I've been bouncing this idea around in my head for a while and I think I've got a good idea for another mafia game.

The scenario is that we have all sought shelter in a mall to avoid being eaten by a Zombie apocalypse that has taken over the world. A rogue alliance (mafia) has decided to kill off the rest of the group to prolong their survival given the fact that food is limited inside the building. The rest (townies) have to take out the rogue alliance in order to win the game.

The added zombie twist is the cult aspect. Instead of a mason or cult leader, there might be a zombie already among us biting members each night thus spreading the incubating virus that turns one into a zombie after six days. So like past games, mafia or townies can win but if six days pass in the game without the zombie lord being killed, zombies win.

Each character in the game will be a famous movie actor and will be assigned a certain role they once played in a movie. The role might have been good or villainous and hopefully not too obvious.

For example, say I assign a person to be Christian Bale from the movie "American Psycho" in the game:

His role is of a dark nature in that movie and I'd label him to be mafia. That person could choose to reveal his actor persona at any point in the game but would want to play themselves off to be the hero batman that he's well known for. Your actor persona could be a clue or it could be misleading. It would be your choice to reveal it or play along with it on the board. Roles would be revealed as the story line progresses.

I think I could host this properly. Instead of being God, I'll be Paul Blart from the movie "Mall Cop". In between playing Rock Band, I'll be observing everyone from the hidden mall security camera room.

I'll want to pick and choose some of the same rules as previous games but I'm open for help and suggestions. So, does it sound doable?

Dunno but it's worth a try.

RE: I'm thinking of hosting a Mafia game with a Zombie twist.
Alright, I'll be cranking it up later today then. I'm basically copying previous rules format but adding a time limit to the game to encourage daily lynchings. I think the longest game we had was 5 days? I'll also be adding a mechanism for forcing clues into the story line if I choose to give sway in the game.

I'll post it in a bit.
