Musically themed mafia

Postby nanooktheeskimo » 25 Jun 2018, 06:58

Is there interest in musically themed mafia games here? I've got a couple ideas, but I'm not sure if the interest exists for this or not!

An example would be a Jethro Tull themed game, with characters like "The Kangaroo" (drawn from The Story of the Hare Who Lost His Spectacles, an interlude in Passion Play)....or "The Witch" (drawn from Witches Promise).

I assume that wouldn't necessarily be popular, since I assume that not many if any other people here are big into Jethro Tull!

But, another example could be character names based on pop stars (i.e., a Madonna role, a Rihanna role, that sort of thing), or bands in general.


Is there interest in a game with that sort of flavor? Cause I have a lot of ideas in this direction, but want to see if there's interest before developing them with playdip in mind!

Don't know if this is like what you had in mind, but can you make a game that features a ton of good music (maybe the favorites of the players) and somehow incorporates it into the game?

That would be awesome, and I've always wanted to play a game like that.

I can absolutely do that. Maybe ask for a favorite artist from each player when signing up, and design the game around that.

Yeah, good idea.

It's certainly been a popular theme in the past.

Didn't think you'd have such fond memories of Doobiefest 1. That's probably my dirtiest ever win. I don't think I even followed the thread on the last day because you'd so completely outplayed us the day before and we were all but outed, but jeanphi giveth...

Yeah but that gameplay was so bizarre that over time it has aged into a fine wine
