SETUP RULES


  • To begin with, teams are set a five players a piece, and they select a rank order and name. Traditionally, the strongest player and/or best leader would likely want to be ranked first, second strongest at second, and so forth, but this is up to the team's discretion. The lead player should frequent the website as often as possible and will be given the most responsibilities for keeping his or her team competitive as the game goes on.
  • You should come up with teams on your own, but you're welcome to advertise yourself in the thread if you'd like. A team cannot be made with less than five players. The team aspect is a fundamental part of Mafia Family Feud. You'll ideally want a diverse group of people, but you may also want to consider things like who you'd work well with, who is reliable, and who will keep your team in high spirits. Substitutions are acceptable only when the team is not playing, if they're currently in a game it will have to wait until the game is over.
  • Depending on the amount of interest, I plan to run a sort of tournament, possibly in a round-robin style format. We'll go with a ladder system for now. Obviously we'll need at least ten people, minimum, to run the game.


GAME RULES

NOTE: These rules will be written as though the player has never seen the game played. The rules for the final round have changed somewhat, please read all the rules carefully. I reserve the right to alter the rules should the need arise, but rest assured everything I change or add will be documented and the fundamental mechanics of the game won't change.

Gaining Control
  • To start, the lead players (Rank 1) of both teams will vie for control of the game. A survey question will be asked to both players. This survey question will be along the lines of, "In a survey of 100 Americans, the top 3 responses are on the board. What's the first shape that pops up in your mind?" Both players have 24 hours to answer this question, and since I can't be online 24/7, the second player may PM his or her answer to me as a precaution. This is to prevent the teams from inadvertently helping each other if the first player to answer gets the number one answer. Speed definitely plays a factor in this part!
  • If one of the players gets the number one answer, they're given two options. They will decide if they're going to play, meaning they'll keep the question and attempt to uncover the remaining responses to win the round, or they'll pass, meaning the other team must get all the responses to win the round.
  • If neither player gets the number one answer, the player with the highest ranking answer will get to choose whether his or her team with play or pass.
  • If neither players gets a correct answer, we'll go to the the second player (Rank 2), get responses from both of them, and so forth until one team gains control of the question.

Finding the Answers
  • Once a team has control of the survey question, they will attempt to uncover all the remaining responses on the board.
  • The question starts off with the player ranked after the last player who participated in gaining control (e.g. if it went to the 2nd ranked players, the 3rd player would start).
  • The player must answer within 36 hours with no help from his or her teammates. All answers must be in bold and submitted only from the player who's turn it is.
  • If the player answers correctly, we move onto the next ranked player, and continue until all the responses have been revealed.
  • If the player's answer is too vague or misunderstood in any way, I'll ask the player for a clarification. There will be no time extension for this, so if you think your answer may be questionable, make sure to leave yourself some time.
  • If the player answers incorrectly, the team gets a strike. If the team gets three strikes, control is passed over to the other team. The other team has to get one of the remaining answers on the board in order to steal the entire point total.
  • If the player doesn't answer at all, the lead player (Rank 1) is allowed to submit an answer within the next 12 hours (after the 36 hours window). The original player is no longer allowed to answer, the lead player is the only one who may answer at this point. If he or she doesn't answer, the team automatically gets a strike.
  • The other team must come up with one of the remaining responses on the board to win the round. All players on the team may participate (this is the only time in the game when all players may participate and discuss what their answer should be), but only the lead player (Rank 1), may submit the answer.

Scoring
  • Scoring is tallied by calculating how many surveyors actually choose the response. For example, using the previous example survey question, if 58 people responded "Square", then 58 points would be added to the pool.
  • This score will not always be 100. This is on account of some answers being too unpopular to rank.
  • The second round will be a double point round, and the third round will be a triple point round. This means that the point values will have a double or triple point multiplier respectively.
  • The team with the most points after three rounds moves onto the final round.

Final Round
  • The winning team gets a final survey question all to themselves for the final round. They get 24 hours from the time it's posted to get as many answers as they can, but they must make an important decision about scoring the round.
  • The question may give them normal, double, or triple the amount of points... depending on how confident the team feels. If they choose to play for normal points, it will play just like a normal question. If they choose to play for double points, the team is only allowed two strikes. If they play for triple points, the team may only get one strike before play ends! Normal points will be assigned by default if nothing is chosen.
  • Any player may answer, and they may answer as many times as they like during this round. All answers will be counted in the order with which they are posted.
  • After the 24 hours are up, I'll tally all the submitted answers until either the team reaches their strike limit, or the team correctly gets all the answers on the board.

Question: How close to the answer would you have to be for it to count? (ex. Question is Name something that you grill? Answers are looking for something specific like Beef or Chicken and you say Meat, would you ask for something more specific or would it be an X and Vice-versa?)

Well, there's no real judge's panel. I'll try to be as fair as possible, but the game is subjective in that respect.

Given that we're not really playing for money or anything, I'd hope everyone will kind of keep it in perspective.

In the specific question you asked, I'd have to see the answers before hand. If the answers are, like, Chicken, Beef, Pork, and Onions, I'd ask for something more specific than that. I don't think I'll extend the time for that though.

Good question though; I'll add this to the rules. :)

Based almost entirely on how much I think people are on the site/Mish Mash, I think our team order should be:

KageLord
mallowgeno
danakillsu
SharkFinn
bhavitgoyal

Or, since it really only matters if the rank 1 is on enough, maybe:

KageLord
danakillsu
SharkFinn
mallowgeno
bhavitgoyal

I would also be fine with dana or Shark taking first rank if they think they'll be on often enough.
