FM Game Types


Current

Episode [Forum Mafia]
Run every 3 months by a Forum Mafia moderator. Must include a Town vs. Mafia role list, with all roles having been tested in non-episodes, and must follow the standard game rules (minor exceptions with moderator group approval). Players must have 3+ completed games to join, and they may not join other games while in an Episode. Numbered chronologically.

e.x: Episode XIII

FM [Forum Mafia] (Standard game)
A non-bastard 14-21 player game with a semi-open or closed format, with roles mostly defined as normal and distinct day/night phases. Can be further branded as a CL, SP, or MC game. Named by the last episode number, followed by a letter incrementing (A, then B, etc.) by the start of every game. View upcoming games in the Standard queue!

e.x: 8G, 12G

NFM [Newcomer Forum Mafia]
A Forum Mafia game that typically contains only new players who don't quite have the hang of Forum Mafia yet. 9 or 17 players, open, non-bastard, with a day one lynch. Check in the NFM signups thread to join, or in the NFM queue to view upcoming hosts!

VFM [Vanilla Forum Mafia]
A 9-17 player game containing only vanilla roles. Relies less upon power roles than other games. Infiltrate the VFM queue to be in the need-to-know of upcoming games!

e.x: VFM14, VFM15

SFM [Special Forum Mafia]
Any amount of players. Any kind of game which doesn't qualify for the other game types, whether through its size, its mechanics, or its pure absurdity. Must be approved by the balance team before running. Visit the SFM queue to see what monstrosities are coming up!

e.x: SFM14, SFM18, TFM43

Forum Games
Any game that fits in no other category, hosted in the Forum Games sub-forum. The Forum Mafia Moderators hold no jurisdiction over games in this category. However, forum games may be submitted to the balance team, usually as a TFM or SFM, if they follow the Forum Mafia template: clear-cut day and night phases, an un-informed majority (town-esque) versus an informed minority (mafia-esque), and lynches voted on by players during the day phase.

e.x: VLDR, Behind the Masks

Retired


TFM [Tiny Forum Mafia]*
*Merged with SFM
A 3-13 player game with 72-max hour days. Any format. All and any mechanics are permitted; however, the game must be submitted to the Balance Team to be approved. Sneak over to the TFM queue to grab a glance at upcoming games!

e.x: TFM12, TFM17, TFM47

CFM [Community Forum Mafia]
CFM games must be pitched to the CFM board and co-hosted by any Forum Mafia moderator. Must include clear-cut day and night phases, an un-informed majority (town-esque) versus an informed minority (mafia-esque), and lynches voted on by players during the day phase. Specific duties to each moderator should be worked out on a game-by-game basis. Players may only be in one CFM game at a time.

e.x: CFM8, CFM15

GFM [Giant Forum Mafia]
Run by a group of Forum Mafia moderators. Must include clear-cut day and night phases, an un-informed majority (town-esque) versus an informed minority (mafia-esque), and lynches voted on by players during the day phase. Players in GFM may not be in any other FM game. Contains 2-4 sub-games which are readable to neither the public nor players in other sub-games. Once a given point is reached, all sub-games are merged into one mega-game. Exact win conditions to be determined before start of games. Numbered chronologically with each sub-game designated with a letter (A, B, C, etc).

e.x: GFM Residential District, GFM Business District, GFM Marketplace District, GFM: Master Thread

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


All players and games, situation nonwithstanding, must adhere to the Forum Mafia Rules. Please contact a FM Moderator in case of an exception.
