For those that have never played, Mafia is a game where players are broken into different roles and mafia members try to kill off the townspeople as the townspeople try to find the mafia members

The game is broken up into two phases.

There is the day phase, where players will vote on who they believe is a mafia member. that member will be removed from the game. A vote goes through if it has support from the majority of the players. The day phase ends when someone is removed from the game, or a preset amount of time has passed.

The night phase is where mafia members will vote on one player to kill. It is also the time when the detective is active and will select the member they believe to be the mafia. Night phase is complete when the night actions are complete.

There are three roles in this game

Townspeople: this is any player of the game, they act during the day and each townsperson gets one vote. A townsperson is out if the majority vote them to be out, the mafia kills them in the night, or the detective selects them in the night.

Mafia: one or several members of the group. These people pretend to be townspeople and vote in the day. At night they select one townsperson to kill.

Detective: acts as a regular townsperson during the day. At night they have the option to select one person they believe to be the mafia and remove them from the game.

The game is over when there are no more mafia, or there are not enough townspeople left to vote the mafia out.

This game will start on friday afternoon, day phases will be given between 24 to 36 hours to complete.

well I'm happy to answer any questions you might have

basically at the beginning of the game I randomly select mafia members. The other players have to try to figure out who the mafia is before they kill everyone off.

Did a live-action version of this years ago in summer camp when it was part of an activity in a series of fun "acting classes" we took. Sign me up!
