One person is the narrator. He tells everyone to shut their eyes. He then goes around the circle and picks two people to be mafia by tapping them on the head and one person to be detective by tapping them on their shoulder. This has to be done discretely otherwise the game will be ruined. The mafia are then asked to wake up. the two people wake up and between the two of them silently agree on who to kill by pointing. The mafia are then told to go back to sleep and the detective is then asked to wake up. The detective then guesses who is the mafia. The narrator then moves his/her head to indicate whether they are correct or not. The detective then goes back to sleep and the narrator then tells everyone to wake up. The narrator then informs the group of who has died. Once dead the player can not speak and does not have to close their eyes again. Once everyone is awake peopel can start to accuse people of being in the mafia. After a couple of minutes the narrator should decide on the 2 names that are being suggested the most. Both these people are then put on trial. they have 30 seconds to put a case forward as to why they are not in the mafia. After both of them have spoken the narrator calls a vote. The player with the most votes is then dead and they must say if they are the Mafia or not. This is then repeated until either: 1) Both mafia members are dead 2) Only mafia members are alive.
