    True about the anti-town part. But I think that the setup might as well do it automatically, then!
    There's also pressure on the Town, though. I see no issue with it.
    But really, let's stop discussing other setups in this thread. I can move the posts in a new thread if you want to continue the discussion, though.
    Nah I'm good.
    Had a bit of a misunderstanding.
    Apparently you said:
    Let's try not to clutter Mag's setup thread with that discussion
    I totally missed that "not" when I first read it. XD @Magoroth
    Sorry, it was a honest mistake. :P

    What do you mean by "RNG-solvable setup"?

    ~~

    I think there is no way town wouldn't announce who are their pairs, as that would be strictly anti-town.
    So now the game is presented with 6 lynches, 3 are mafia wins, 3 are town wins.
    Town has no info on top of that. With the exclusion that no pair has 2 mafias.

    There is so much pressure on Mafia, that perhaps a "3-3" pair count isn't fair?

    Based on what I said about Instant Mafia in my last post, Marshall, I think combining Instant Mafia with True_Love would make for a more balanced setup. Both sides have 3 "pairs" to lynch, while Town still has the Majority.

    A true 50/50. Wouldn't that make it be a serious setup instead of a meme one?
    Just not sure if better to be all vanilla, like in True_Love, or have a sheriff, like in Instant Mafia.

    Also look at the post below to see the setup from that legendary game, one of the funnest games I have ever played, including outside of FM. You'll see what I mean ;)
    Oh and, on another topic, this was put as a S-FM.
    It's a closed setup right?

    Not gonna lie. I can't even begin to wrap my head around that setup..
    I will just take your word for it. xD

    Today I woke up and like this setup. Go figure ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
    I do have my preferences, setups that I absolutely wouldn't play.


    The thing about instant mafia though. It's a Vanilla setup in which the town has infinitely less information to work with than in other Vanilla setups.
    Imagine a Basic Mafia 8-2 setup, and think about how much information is gained out of EoD1 and N1. Same thing for almost every setup.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but there are plenty of players who are very inactive on almost all D1's simply because too little to actually analyze, right? Well, in Instant Mafia those same people are forced to make a game deciding decision.

    That being said though. The creator of Instant Mafia said it himself - he created it to "force people to learn how to "get information" Day1" or something along those lines. So for all intents and purposes, it was never even meant to be a setup for a "real game".
    It's designed to be a meme setup.

    Yeah, Mag.
    You should make this a 10 IRL days long setup!

    The idea of such a setup is to force people to make reads quickly and accurately. If the game was solvable by random lynching, it would obviously not be fun. I'm not against the odds that we have here.

    Just a little detail : the defendant and the witness are not magistrates, as far as I know. That's just flavor, though.


    Is there going to be a trial system? Only one lynch in the game, and a limited number of trials is allowed? Or do I misunderstand the intent behind the setup?
    I think my dislike is just personal taste tbh, since I think Instant Mafia outcome is way more random than anyone would like to believe.

    Yes, Instant Mafia is perfectly playable as everything is still determined by the gameplay of the players.
    BUT I dare you to find me a (approved)setup where the outcome is more... random.
    Do you accept this challenge?

    Also, I feel a little bit like an ahole for arguing so unnecessarily.

    Ohh
    I think you underestimate how truly random are D1 lynches.
    If witness chooses to claim their role, and mafia not, then a random lynch is 66% mafia win.
    Would be curious to see what others think. But aint gonna get that. :/

    @Magoroth
    Judging from the role cards - this is a nightless/killless setup, yes? That would make Witness OP...

    Aanyway, saw the name and wanted to ask: what is thunderdome? I see that name used in FMs...
