    Magic Mafia Detector Polygraph Test



    Inspired by Madrigal's Town Parade, I've given a questionnaire below that's designed to give a strong reading on who's mafia and who isn't. There are three questions in particular that should be telling.

    If you are townie, you have nothing to fear, so long as you respond naturally and honestly. But if you take the entire test as a joke, you'll come across as deflecting. You can give as much or as little detail as you feel is appropriate to answer the question.

    Not answering or significantly delaying your response will paint you in a very guilty light.



    The questions:

    1. If you had to, would you bet real money on a town win or a mafia win (assuming even odds)?

    2. If you were mafia, how would you play the game in general?

    3. If you were mafia, who would you recommend to kill in the night phase?

    4. Do you think you would be good as a mafia player? Why?

    5. How many mafia players do you think there are?


    The following questions are for townies only (mafia players should leave these questions blank):

    6. How would you describe yourself as a player? Quiet/outspoken? Passive/confrontational? Instinctive/logical? Reactionary/patient?

    7. Which do you think is a more likely outcome for you: a) lynched in the day phase, b) lynched at night or by special role, c) survive. Why? If you answered a) or b), roughly how soon?

    8. Which player would you be most frightened of as being mafia in this game?

    9. In a few words, why should people believe that you are townie at this point in time?

    10. How "useful" a townie do you think you are compared to other players?


    For all players, including mafia:

    11. Answer instinctively ... pick a color: green or red.

    12. Answer instinctively ... pick a number between 1 and 10.

    13. Answer instinctively ... pick one of the following emoticons: , , , , .

    The town will win. I'm betting you a real pisco sour right now.

    2. If you were mafia, how would you play the game in general?
    By being a disgusting traitor and having a shitty time doing it. I hated being mafia.

    3. If you were mafia, who would you recommend to kill in the night phase?
    I would kill a non-entity in a show of strength.

    4. Do you think you would be good as a mafia player? Why?
    You can sum it up like this: When she was good, she was very, very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid.

    5. How many mafia players do you think there are?
    There are probably 3 or 4 mafia.

    The following questions are for townies only (mafia players should leave these questions blank):


    6. How would you describe yourself as a player? Quiet/outspoken? Passive/confrontational? Instinctive/logical? Reactionary/patient?
    Outspoken, confrontational, instinctive, and you're using reactionary wrong.

    7. Which do you think is a more likely outcome for you: a) lynched in the day phase, b) lynched at night or by special role, c) survive. Why? If you answered a) or b), roughly how soon?
    Probably killed by a typically stupid, unimaginative mafia that doesn't have the balls to play with me.

    8. Which player would you be most frightened of as being mafia in this game?
    You.

    9. In a few words, why should people believe that you are townie at this point in time?
    Because all of my suggestions favor the town.

    10. How "useful" a townie do you think you are compared to other players?
    I don't know - if my first guesses are right, we have some smart townies.

    11. Answer instinctively ... pick a color: green or red.
    This is a question? Red - duh.

    12. Answer instinctively ... pick a number between 1 and 10.
    1.

    13.
    (None of them but I had to pick one.)

    Okay thanks Madrigal! Your results have been recorded on a punch card and fed through the totally objective mafia polygraph bullshit machine. The results are very illuminating!

    (My pisco sour is a peruano by the way, I find it the most bitter-sweet. )

    Come on townies! Strength in unity! Don't be all johnny-tight-lipped or betty-say-nawt. Answer the thang yo. It's educational ♬.

    [QUOTE=Utisz;99861]

    Inspired by Madrigal's Town Parade, I've given a questionnaire below that's designed to give a strong reading on who's mafia and who isn't. There are three questions in particular that should be telling.

    1. Assuming even odds, it doesn't matter. I don't generally put money on coin flips.... and when i do, i don't generally care which side of the coin is mine. in fact, I'd flip a coin to decide who to bet on.

    2. I've never had the opportunity to find out, but I'd guess I'd play the same way I would as a townie. That said, I'd be interested in trying to exploit the informational advantage they get.

    3. Utisz!

    4. Everyone suspects me as mafia anyway. I'd be doomed one way or another, but I don't think I'd be necessarily useless as a mafia either.

    5. 3

    6. I try to be outspoken, with the other characteristics I take a balanced approach.

    7. Death eaten. If i'm going to get lynched, it'd probably be in the 2nd half of the game (going by experience). That eventuality can only take place provided i don't get killed by mafia before that.

    8. I aint afraid of no ghosts. I don't feel particularly attached to any of the players at this point, so they're all equally dangerous, more or less.

    9. Cuz mhc will turn up mafia and i voted him first!

    10. Useful for who?

    For11.green

    12. 7

    13.
    Violence is never the right answer, unless used against heathens and monsters.

    I feel like I'm being convinced to take candy from some creep in a van...


    1. If you had to, would you bet real money on a town win or a mafia win (assuming even odds)?
    Town

    2. If you were mafia, how would you play the game in general?
    Probably try to blend in.

    3. If you were mafia, who would you recommend to kill in the night phase?
    The most threatening townie.

    4. Do you think you would be good as a mafia player? Why?
    I've never had the experience so I don't know, but I think I'd be ok.

    5. How many mafia players do you think there are?
    3ish

    The following questions are for townies only (mafia players should leave these questions blank):

    6. How would you describe yourself as a player? Quiet/outspoken? Passive/confrontational? Instinctive/logical? Reactionary/patient?
    Quiet and passive for the most part, unless I really have something I need to say. Sometimes I feel conflicted by logic and instinct in this game. I don't think I'm the type to overreact much... but maybe on occasion when things get nuts right before voting ends.

    7. Which do you think is a more likely outcome for you: a) lynched in the day phase, b) lynched at night or by special role, c) survive. Why? If you answered a) or b), roughly how soon?
    If the other townies get paranoid at all about my score in the parade game, probably lynched.

    8. Which player would you be most frightened of as being mafia in this game?
    Madrigal or Utisz

    9. In a few words, why should people believe that you are townie at this point in time?
    because I am one... I don't know that there's much I can do to prove it at this point, nor can any other player.

    10. How "useful" a townie do you think you are compared to other players?
    About the same as the others...

    For all players, including mafia:

    11. Answer instinctively ... pick a color: green or red.
    Green

    12. Answer instinctively ... pick a number between 1 and 10.
    9

    13. Answer instinctively ... pick one of the following emoticons: , , , , .

    Sorry I refuse to be subjected to this degrading treatment. If you want me to take this test you'll have to capture me.

    Madrigal calls herself the traitor, mafia kills her anyway.

    I blew a fuse.
