So why did Mafia Game Online spread so fast

So why did Mafia Game Online spread so fast? Arguably because it answers one of life's most fundamental questions. At its heart, perhaps inevitably for a game created by a psychology student who came of age under a regime that hushed up a massive nuclear disaster for more than 30 years, is the question of whether knowledge is power.

The only advantage the killers have is knowledge: they know each others' identities. With that, they split the world into the empowered minority and the vulnerable majority. Balancing that dynamic is another strength: Mafia's resonance with some of the worst, but most universal, traits of human society. Every culture has had its witch-hunts and pogroms, and anxiety about being caught on the wrong side of persecution is a fear that crosses borders, languages and eras. Mafia, in its abstract, trivial way, lets us play with those fears. That could have been the end of the story.

But in 1997, things changed, when Mafia arrived in New Jersey, where one Martin Eiger was running gaming parties. A friend came along and taught the crowd Mafia. It was a hit, so when Eiger attended the National Puzzlers' League convention later that year, he decided to teach a group of players. It proved just as big a hit; games ran late into the night.

Among the group that night was Andrew Plotkin, a legend among interactive-fiction writers. He still remembers his less-than stellar debut: "I cheerfully announced that I was Mafia, because I didn't know what I was trying to do. I think that ended poorly."

Defeat didn't matter: he was hooked. "I was fascinated with the game design. I had never seen a game with such a pure strategic underpinning -- no mechanics to be strategic about. It was what poker would be if you didn't play with a deck of cards, but bet solely on other people's bets. It shouldn't have worked, but it did." He made his first contribution to changing Mafia forever: he introduced it to a new gizmo he was very enthusiastic about: the World Wide Web.
