So I was planning to write a post about Mafia, the party game where a group of villagers tries to identify the killers in their midst. I was going to write about the psychological implications of the game, and the likelihood of winning from different ratios of mafia/villagers. I was going to write about the variations one can introduce, and their effects on the game. And then I found this article.
Any time you could have spent reading my blog post on this topic would be much better spent reading this. It’s fascinating and hilarious and wonderful and why aren’t you reading it yet?
I’ll be back in one to two weeks with a long and in-depth post…I’m thinking game theory, or cellular automata. Meanwhile, that article.
