Board Game Mafia (Game Thread)


Recommended Posts

The Board Games gathered in the living room, each taking the form of their most prominent player. Risk took the form of the Blue Army. The aircraft carrier was from Battleship. The Monopoly Man stood elegantly, representing Monopoly. Suddenly, wooden squares began to fall from the air. They soon rearranged themselves on the carpet to form messages.


And then:


The games were quick on the uptake. Clue spoke up. “It’s clear what we have to do. We must rearrange ourselves among the house and attempt to catch the video games by dark. In the day, unfortunately, somebody must be lynched. This is the only way.”

The other board games quickly dispersed, hoping against hope that they will be useful in the war to come.

The Nintendo Wii shook violently, knocking over game boxes. Suddenly, a mystical form seeped out of the CD slot. Super Smash Bros. appeared. It became a mesh of characters’ limbs and appendages, a truly horrifying sight to see. It put its hand out to the Xbox until it too began to shake. It then hopped onto the computer and touched the monitor. The pixels began to ripple. Simultaneously, Call of Duty and Minecraft hopped out of their respective devices. Super Smash Bros. looked at the two and instructed them. “Every night,” he said, “we will kill one of the pesky Board Games, and we will each do what we do best. Understand?” They did. And so saying, the Electronics stormed out of the teenage boy’s bedroom. Not the snazziest of settings, but that hardly mattered. The invasion had begun.

Checkers hopped off the nightstand and quickly made its way to the stairway banister. “They’re here,” he whispered, “the Electronics have come. They’ll take over the household.” The figure in front of him turned to him. “Fool!” snapped Chess, “this is our opportunity! Nobody remembers us,” he said, smiling bitterly, “and we’ll use that to our advantage. We will pit the fools against each other and then end up on top when they’ve tired out. We will win, because we are the Strategy Games!” On that note, Chess slid down the banister, laughing maniacally. Checkers stood there for a moment before walking away, hoping something was on TV.

Goodies: Golden Age Board Games

WinCon: Baddies, Indy dead

The Goodies are your Family Game Night classics. That means that they will not tolerate any newcomers trying to take over the world.

Monopoly – Everyone’s favorite money game. Monopoly has the resources to buy a person off for a cycle or two. (Trap)

The Game of Life – Realistic and world-weary, Life can reason with you to change your vote. (Vote mod - can change another's vote)

Candy Land – The simplest of board games, Candy Land can still get you lost in the Peppermint Forest or the Molasses Swamp for the night. (Block)

Chutes and Ladders – Can climb up and down all over the board, quickly getting a rescue team to the person that they think is going to die. (Save)

Clue – Impossibly clever with plenty of detectives, the game can find out a person’s role with ease. (Role Spy)

Scrabble – A master of wordplay, Scrabble has the ability to affect the posts (Can add a paragraph of his own every Night and Day)

Battleship – The game where you try and blow up ships. Battleship will make use of that power and blow Baddies and Indies out of the way. (RID Kill)

Risk – A game where the roll of a die can win a war. In this case, the roll of that die can change his action. (Die Roll; 1 - Follow Spy, 2 - Redirect, 3 - Vote Redirect, 4 - Block, 5 - RID Kill, 6 - No Action.)

Baddies: Newfangled Electronic Games – BTSC and Night Kill

WinCon: Majority

The Baddies are the Invaders – attacking electronic games out to rule the game industry.

Super Smash Bros. – Nintendo’s franchise where a bunch of characters attempt to chuck each other off the screen. This is useful, as SSBB will do the same to you – knock you out. (Block)

Call of Duty – The game where you get to shoot like a maniac. However, the game can be precise and put a gun to your head until you tell it your role. (Role Spy)

Minecraft – A hugely popular computer game where you can make just about anything. The game will literally pile up it’s vote. (x0-x2 vote manip)

Indy: Strategy Games – BTSC + RID Kill

WinCon: Last Faction Standing

Always underestimated and dismissed, the Indies will tactically try to make use of the war.

Chess – The most sophisticated of games, chess is often considered to be for “nerds”. Out to prove them wrong, chess will surround you with all 32 pieces for a night and a day (Trap)

Checkers – Always considered a children’s game, Checkers is out to prove that he is a big boy. Will whisk away a player for a night and make them attack someone else. (Redirect)

I confirmed with curr3nt in our Illegal BTSC.

Wait... you didn't tell me it was illegal! Can I plead ignorance?


In the interest of transparency I should note that he is joking / signalling me. Mentioning illegal BTSC is code for I'm a goodie and trying to find out if you are a goodie too.

Obviously since I'm outing Molly as a goodie that would make me either a baddie or an indie.

(Please note the intentional misspelling of indy)
