In a hidden valley that is only a white spot on most maps, there is a little village. Its inhabitants have got used to being haunted by the Mafia every night. The slaughter and killing had even become a bit dull already.
But now it will get much more frigthening, violent and bloodthirsty than before. The Mafia-family has gained a few more members who are all more cunning than the average Mafioso. But there are also new characters among the villagers who influence the lives and deaths inside the community.
Finally, paranormal beings come into the game now as well. They have inexplicable and supernatural powers which will drive even the most dogged villager (and moderator) mad…
Mafia – So dark the night
This expansion offers 24 new roles for “Mafia – The Partygame” and can only be played in combination with the basegame. Experienced players will enjoy it a lot, but it is advisable to include the new characters into the game one at a time and not all at once. Many moderators have lost their sanity already and have started killing players arbitrarily with pretzel sticks.
The new characters
You can see all of the new characters in the “Mafiart Gallery”.
The lone fighter belongs to the Mafia and kills a victim with them every night. Every second night, he may wake up after the Mafia and can kill another player. Of course this can also be a fellow Mafia member. Since they are in danger as well, they have to find out, who among them is the lone fighter and try to lynch him during the day.
The lone fighter’s goal is to be the last survivor of the village.
Mommy of Boss
The mommy of the boss is a normal villager until the Mafia boss dies. The she becomes the new boss.
Don Cannone is a Mafia member who is so stoned at the beginnign of the game, that he misses the first two nights. Then he wakes up with the other Mafia characters, if he hasn’ taccidentally been killed before.
Dude Rude secretly chooses a confidant at the start of the game. If that player is killed by the Mafia, Dude Rude helps the detective for the rest of the game. They now wake up and work together.
If the confidant is lynched by the villagers, Dude Rude will instead become a new member of the Mafia.
Jasmin Assassin is a member of the Mafia – and she is just beautiful. Nobody can resist her, not even her victims.
Once per game she may wake up after the Mafia and point at the victim again. This victim is now a spellbound new member of the Mafia.
At the beginning of the game, the ex prisoner can decide if he wants to fight for the good or for the evil. According to his decision he either wakes up together with the detective (there are two of them now) or with the Mafia.
The Terrorist picks someone and places a bomb under that player’s chair. If the chosen player dies (no matter how), the bomb explodes and the player’s left and right neighbors are killed as well.
The terrorist also takes his two neighbors with him, if he gets killed.
Schorsch Dabbelju tries to hund down the terrorist. Every night, he points at someone. If that player is the terrorist, he has to leave the game (without taking his two neighbors with him). The terrorist’s bomb victim also gets spared, the bomb is deactivated.
Very Old Woman
The very old woman is so very old that her time to die eventually has come. She dies in the morning of day X, X being the initial number of Mafia. So if the game starts with three Mafia, she dies on the third morning.
The Cult Leader
The cult leader wins, if all of the surviving players are members of his sect.
Every night he chooses a player who gets converted. From now on, that player has to make the same decisions like the leader.
The lawyer is a villager who wakes up every night before the Mafia to choose a client to defend. The next day this player may not be lynched by the village.
The Farmer is a normal villager who is responsible for the food supply of the village. If he dies, the village will starve three days later because of a lack of nutrition.
Bernd is a bitter old man who doesn’t like half of the village.
The players are divided into two even groups (e.g. men and women etc.). Bernd wins the game, if the group he doesn’t belong to has been eliminated completely.
Orloch von Stecher
Orloch is a marriage swindler. Every night he chooses a new spouse. His spouses are not allowed to vote against him during the day (they are madly in love with him), but they have to try to get rid of one another and must vote against one of Orloch’s other spouses. If Orloch has three surviving spouses at the end of the day, he wins the game.
The medium takes on the role of the last deceased villager and may perform all the actions of that role. The player has to do that until there is a new dead villager whose role they have to take on then.
The Voodoo Priestess
The Voodoo priestess points at a player very night who is bewitched and won’t be able to do anything meaningful during that night or the next day besides drooling and crying painfully. That player may still be killed by the Mafia, of course.
The vigilante is afraid of foreign infiltration of his national culture by immigrants. Every night he points at a player he is concerned about. That player automatically has two votes against him the next day.
Sometimes there are no victims during a night. In that case, the moderator announces that NOBODY has died.
Nobody has to leave the game then.
The Zombie infects someone at night, so that player develops an appetite for corpses. In the morning the infected player has to sit on the lap of the last victim and can’t take part in the discussion and voting. He’s only allowed to make smacking and chewing noises.
The body snitcher points at two players at night. Whatever happens to one of them happens to the other player instead. Confusing? Yeah, definitely.
The ghost can pass on messages from beyond the grave. If the player dies, he has to sit in the middle of the group. Every morning, before the night’s victim has been announced, the ghost can shout one letter of the alphabet to the village.
Bloody Mary returns from the grave to take revenge on her murderers. If she gets killed, she is not allowed to speak or vote anymore but still continues to take part in the game. At night, she can leave her eyes open the whole time. If she was killed by the Mafia, she will kill one of them every night. If she was lynched by the village, she’ll pick a villager every night, until none of them is left.
The vampire wakes up after the Mafia and points at a player. That player dies after the voting has taken place at the end of the following day.
The extraterrestrial points at two players at night who are “abducted” and dropped off at the wrong place later. Both players have to swap their seats. This role is perfect for games where the seating arrangement is important (e.g. if you also include the terrorist, the pig rider etc.)
