I feel like I should probably know what "Mafia" is before I sign up to play.

I also feel like I should probably know what "Mafia" is, already.

sigh... I'm not invited anymore am i?

I didn't sign up because I just couldn't see the game working in text-based form, not that I don't like games generally. (I didn't want to say anything discouraging so as not to get into a self-fufilling prophecy.)

But if you wanted to run a Botticelli game or something else textier, that'd be fun.

13: All timezones are welcome! I'll help with the conversions.

(Were welcome, that is.)

I've never been totally clear on the rules of Botticelli, but it sounds like I'd be like, "Oh, I know a lot about Garth Brooks," and find out in thirty seconds that compared to people on Unfogged, I know nothing about Garth Brooks.

The most fun game to play online is Mornington Crescent.

I start with the Wilmington's Classic opener:

Blackfriars, on the District Line.

Ooh, Botticelli. There's another one I haven't played in a long time.

(Remember the scene in The Crying of Lot 49 with the Strip Botticelli?)

Here, I'll start: from square four, I hit it into square two.

I hit it back extremely hard into the corner of your square. An argument breaks out about the legality of that move.

Okay since I scored a point I get to make a rule, and the rule is that it's backwards-counting day, and square four is square one.

I can say from experience that Mafia works just fine over text; I've done it as a multi-day kind of thing, but if everyone was online at once it could easily be done in an evening.

Candy-asses.

Mornington Crescent. A game of skill. Skill and luck. Skill, luck, and bewildering topologies.

Using the IMF/World Bank variation: Foggy Bottom.
