Variants of Mafia Rules

Davidoff's Game

As you can read in the History of the game, Dmitry Davidoff introduced a variant in 1986, in which the Mafia wake up during the first night merely to learn the identities of the other mafiosi. After this point, multiple convictions are allowed, and night falls whenever there is a majority vote for it.

During the night, the Mafia act independently, but all must independently choose the same person for the killing to take place.

There are no special characters.

On December 3, 1998, we played this game, although we had a moderator for simplicity's sake. The civilians actually managed to win it.
