What we're about

Welcome to the Vancouver social deduction gamers group. I made this group because i'm a huge fan of games like mafia and i want to meet other people who love these games as much as I do. But whether you're an experienced player or have never played before, you're welcome to come check out some of our events and play with us.

If you're new to social deduction games or don't know what i'm talking about, here's a brief video that talks about how mafia is played

Other social deduction games might function different in some ways, but the core mechanics usually remain the same, with an uninformed majority players on one team trying to uncover each others loyalties so that they can vote out players who are on the team consisting of the informed minority.

Other popular social deduction games that we play include werewolf, Blood on the clocktower, resistance, Secret Hitler, and much more.

We also have a discord server which you can find here: https://discord.gg/kXuKCTP

We will have at least one event every week and from time to time we will also play other social deduction games like resistance and one night werewolf. I look forward to meeting everybody!

Saturday Night Mafia in Person!

Needs a location

Welcome back to our in person Saturday night mafia event!

If you've never joined us for Saturday mafia before, please familiarize with the rules first to make sure that this sort of game is appealing to you. On Saturday nights we play a version of mafia called "Classic Russian Mafia" which might be significantly different than what you're used to if you've played casual mafia before. You can read about the rules here: https://mafia.brolia.com/rules

Or if you'd prefer to watch some of our games to get a feel for what it's like then you can find some past games that we've uploaded to youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoPrO5kjaSGE8jiWbvSMHUg

The address where we'll be playing will be messaged to you after you sign up although it's very close to Burrard and Davie. For returning players, the address will be the same location that we played at previously.

Due to the popularity of this event we can only accommodate a limited number of first time players each week so if you sign up but we've already reached that number (usually 2), I'll message you to let you know that the event is full.

If on the night of the event you have any questions or have difficulty finding the location then feel free to send me a text to[masked]

Social Deduction Games Night @ The American

Needs a location

Welcome to our biweekly games night! This week we'll be meeting at the American on main street to hang out and play some of our favorite social deduction games. We'll have a large space in the back of the bar so when you arrive, just head to the back and look for the tables with games on them.

We're being given the space under the assumption that everybody in attendance spends money at least up to the value of a small meal. You can find their food menu here: https://theamerican.bar/menu/ and their drink menu here: https://theamerican.bar/the-american-drinks-menu/

Please remember to tip your server at least 15%.

Examples of some of the games we might be playing in case you feel like reading up on the rules before hand:

Resistance Avalon: https://www.ultraboardgames.com/avalon/game-rules.php
Secret Hitler: https://www.secrethitler.com/assets/Secret_Hitler_Rules.pdf
Ultimate werewolf: basically just casual style mafia
Blood on the clocktower (just google it)

This isn't an exhaustive list and if you have any other suggestions of games you might want to play then feel free to let me know. I have a large collection of games so there's a decent chance that I might have something that you're requesting. You're welcome to bring your own games as well.

If on the night of the event you have any questions or can't find our group then feel free to send me a text to[masked].

FAQ:

Question: Can I arrive late?
Answer: Yes, feel free to arrive at any time, although keep in mind that we normally wrap things up at about 10.

Question: I have never played any of the games you listed before, can I still join?
Answer: Of course! We get a lot of new people every week and we're happy to teach games to anybody who is playing them for the first time.

Question: I'm on the waiting list, can I just show up?
Answer: If you're on the waiting list then unfortunately that means that we have already overbooked for the event, meaning that if everybody on the yes list shows up then we'll be over capacity, so please only attend the event if you get moved to the yes list.
