My name is Dimma Davidoff, I am the inventor of the original Mafia game. The game was created in 1986 in Moscow, Russia and quickly spread all over the world. Players made many additional modifications of the game rules, but the basic principle (informed minority vs. uninformed majority) is still intact. Below, you can find the original rules of Mafia, which, in my creator’s opinion, are the most simple, effective, and fun. If you have any questions or comments, please email me [...].
