Variants of Mafia Rules


If an angel is too powerful a character, considering adding a cherub. The Cherub, which debuted 3/4/99, is a half-angel. The Cherub has the power to ask about Mafia just like the angel, but can only ask every other night. This makes the Cherub roughly half as powerful as the angel.

For a game in which one angel is not powerful enough, but two would be two many, consider an angel and a cherub.

We have not fully explored the dynamics of a double-cherub game, but we expect they'd be checking people out on alternate nights.
