MAFIA Evenings at Envoy
Have you ever played MAFIA? Oh, you haven�t even heard of it; then this blog is just for you. :) This game was started by a student from the Psychological Department of Moscow State University. First they played it in the classrooms, dorms and summer camps of the University. Few years later the game got very popular within Soviet countries and overseas as well. Mafia is also known as Werewolf or Assassin.
Everything starts when the narrator of the game secretly assigns the players their roles: either �mafia�, who know each other; or �citizens�, who know only the number of mafia players (usually three or four) amongst them. The game is divided into two phases: the �day� phase and the �night� phase. When the �night� phase is announced all the �townspeople� fall asleep except mafia members who go on hunting. During each �night� phase mafia chooses one innocent citizen to be �killed� that night. Afterwards the �day� phase comes when all the passion starts; each player is given a minute to express his/her opinions, debate the identities of mafia members and vote to kill someone whom the majority suspects. Step by step players are being eliminated until either all mafia members are killed or the latter ones outnumber the innocents. The narrator of the game should be experienced enough in mafia to add some spice to the game with his fun jokes, humor and comical irony for the players� entertainment. Mafia is rarely played in groups of fewer than eight, and must always start with more innocents than mafia.
Nowadays Mafia is very popular in Armenia especially among the youth so our team decided to organize mafia evenings at Envoy. We thought this could be an amazing chance for the locals and foreigners to meet and play together. This is a great opportunity for our visitors to make exchange of cultures and experiences. If this is something that sounds appealing to you join us twice a month for the mafia nights. Every other week on Saturday night at 7 PM be at Envoy and stay entertained with us. We are always glad to host you!
