2 Mafia-Mafia Lover Pairs
1 Town-Mafia (Flagbearer) Lover Pair
5 Town-Town Lover Pairs

Nightless. Mafia's goal is to control 50% of the players. Town's goal is to lynch the Town-Mafia pair.



I stole callforjudgement's setup from the April challenge, then I put my own twist on it. What do you think of it?

Another plus of this setup is that it's more flavorful, but I suck at flavor writing, so if someone runs this in the future, they should put some amazing flavor on this.

I assume pairs are public and the game is nightless? I like it. It encourages lynches based on individual play which is probably in scum's favor in terms of achieving mislynches and pair paranoia.
At the same time most players can safely trust their partner and the flagbearer aspect definitely balances it out
Hey all! Excited and nervous to play my first game with you!

I did some number crunching and it turned out that the EV is 37/56, or 66.1%...

I didn't realize that making the Flagbearer only half-Mafia make the game more tilted towards the town. Maybe I'll find some other numbers to play the game at.

2+1+4 still has a 55% EV.

Maybe 3+1+5 are the best numbers to play the game at, but I haven't calculated it.
