Joe stumbles into the apartment. It’s late (or is it early?) and he’s been drinking again. A lot. He lumbers toward the kitchen and flips on the light, raising his hand to shield his glazed-over eyes as roaches scatter for a dark place to hide.
Joe’s stomach churns from the booze but also rumbles with hunger pangs. You hear him approach your home, the refrigerator, and swing the door open.
“Holy **** !”, he exclaims, reeling backwards as the nasty funk of rotten-food-smell blasts him in the face. Regaining his balance and somewhat of his composure, he thinks better of a snack and instead flops onto the couch to pass out.
Surely in the morning he’ll clean out the fridge completely, indiscriminately sending each one of you to your doom. If you wish to survive the great purge, you must find and eliminate the emanators of the odious odors. Rotten to the core, they will certainly take as many of you with them as they can…
Welcome to Refrigerator Mafia, a game for new players. If you are familiar at all with mafia, the information in this post should be all you need to know to get started. If you need to learn the very basics, though, I strongly suggest you view this Tutorial and this introduction. The following list will be kept current throughout the game, so you can always check this first post for information:
(i.e., the things that apply to every game of mafia.)
Do not discuss this game outside the thread with anyone. Not your friends, not your mother, not another forum member who isn’t playing, not a dead player, not a living player while you’re dead. No one. The only exceptions are me and whatever is instructed in your role PM. This applies to any game in progress; don’t talk about other running games in this one, even if you aren’t playing in that one.
Do not quote any PMs from me, nor paraphrase too closely, lest I smite you.
Do not edit or delete your posts, lest I smite you.
Obey the Forum Rules. This especially includes flaming. Play nice, kids. The only exception being you may double post if necessary, but please make an effort to respond to things in one post. Use the multiquote button or copy/paste.
Do not lurk, lest I smite you. You must maintain a reasonable level of active participation in the game. We understand that life gets in the way of mafia. However, please respect the other players and I by keeping us informed. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 72-hour period, please post a notice to that effect in the thread or PM the mod. If you feel unable to continue to play the game at the commitment level expected, request to be replaced. Do not simply vanish, unless under life-threatening peril. And I’ll just put this warning out there now: if ever I suspect lurking/replacing is being used as a survival tactic, you will be modkilled.
Make your votes in bold. If you do not bold your vote, it may not be counted. Please be attentive and unvote (in bold), if necessary, before casting a new vote. If you do not unvote first, your new vote may not be counted.
Ask the moderator, me, if you are unsure about anything. If you post a request of the moderator in the thread, please bold it.
Have fun! Otherwise, why play?
Other Rules You Should Know:
Lynching will require a simple majority of votes. Once a lynch threshold has been reached nothing can undo it. You may continue to post until night.
You may Vote: No Lynch
If a deadline is reached with no majority, the day will end without a lynch. Deadlines will be set at moderator discretion.
Once your death scene has been posted, you’re dead. Stop typing. A simple “Bah” post containing no relevant information is acceptable.
If you have a night choice to make, it is due by the posted deadline. If I don’t receive your choice, nothing will happen. If you wish to not use a night action, please tell me so; don’t just let the deadline expire. I like nights to be as short as possible.
This is a very basic game of mafia. I am not going to tell you every role that could be in the game, but complicated roles or weird variations do not exist. Absolutionis’ list is a very good guide for what roles you can expect in any newbie game.
The town win condition is: "Eliminate the rotten food."
A vanilla role PM contains some flavor and "You’re not the one stinking up the fridge."
@ yeah sorry I didn't click on your profile to see you a her till after I had posted. But know i've never had a thong wedgie but I believe you so wedge: what do you say to the accusations that you promote thong wedgies.

Associating yourself with Bill Clinton. Tsk, tsk, tsk, what a scummy thing to do. (But not as scummy as trying to associate oneself with Richard Nixon. :sweat:)
As much as I dislike Bill Clinton, one the he did very well was work the economy. We experienced a decent economic growth while he was president, and often worked with a surplus. * Weeping Willow lights a cigar in remembrance.
@Weeping Willow: Bill Clinton wasn't too bad a U.S. president. I wasn't old enough to remember his tenure well. He did do a good job with the economy, and the foreign policy was quite good too. (Getting along with post-Cold War Russia was a good thing to do, which helped defrost the relations. (Probably the same thing the next U.S. president has to do too.))
@gamestate: I didn't look well enough to see that Wedges was on 3 votes. Unvote Wedges.
