Variants of Mafia Rules


A common problem is for the Mafia to be unable to decide who they want to kill at night. This causes Mafia members to point wildly and emphatically and this activity gives them away.

The Godfather is the highest ranking surviving member of the Mafia and makes all decisions. Other Mafia members may point of they wish, but they may stay silent otherwise. After the first turn, they need not even open their eyes again at night, unless they become Godfather.

This role made its debut on 3/4/99. It was well received. By acclamation, the king of the Mafia suit is the Godfather, the Queen is the Godmother, and the Jack is "Guido".
