General Mafia Strategy

From MafiaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


  • If a Mafia member is on trial and most likely going to be found guilty, do not vote innocent. Voting innocent will expose the Mafia immediately if they are the only ones who vote innocent.
    • Being the only one to not vote a confirmed Mafia to trial can be as bad as voting innocent.

Night Meeting/Action

  • Don't say each others names at night, a Spy could be listening.
    • Sometimes using false names causes confusion among the Towns people (see: WIFOM).
  • One advanced tactic if the Mafia has a Janitor is this: If a Mafia member is sure to be killed at night, have the Janitor target that Mafia member. This will make it so that the Town doesn't see his role and thus leaving them with no information.
    • This strategy can be nullified by a Coroner.


  • Try to avoid killing players the Neutrals too early in the game, let them cause confusion in the Town and don't waste kills on them.
  • Consiglieres should be careful about revealing them selves as Investigators, make sure it's possible for there to be more Investigators, and that people don't happen to have died in the same order as your clues.
