Newcomer Mafia Tips Thread15

NeverJest19d 19h

A thread of helpful rules of thumbs to keep note of for those just starting out.

Feel free to add your helpful tips!

Tip #1: Familiarize yourself with some of the terms used commonly in EpicMafia, such as lylo, ate, ml, or blue. (I believe there's a page full of these terms but I haven't found it yet)

Tip #2: Utilize the Settings tab on the bottom right of the screen. 2a: Enabling helpful boxes such as Timestamps and Voting Log can help you keep track of the game more easily, and can help you look for interactions. 2b: Enabling speech filter can help you isolate and read specific players, which can help facilitate reading.

Tip #3: Remember that the objective of Town is to lynch all the Mafia, while the objective of the Mafia is to gain a majority over Town, and that Mafia and Power Roles start with more information than the rest of the town. Use this as a starting basis for reading for who is Town and who is Mafia.

if you ever play a setup you haven't played before, on the top toolbar (the same line where you see the role icons) there is a hammer and wrench icon. Clicking this opens up user-written strategies, so you can get a feel for how people normally play that setup. If you are still confused, always ask during pregame (or even during the gameplay) how a setup is normally played. They are all usually unique in some way, so each game will be different, and not following that setup's strategy can really hurt your team at times.

Personally, I think sandbox is a great place to start and make yourself familiar with how different roles works. It allows you to adapt into different setups easily in main. :)
