    Although Mafia is usually played face to face, playing it online is also common. This adds a new dimension to the game, making it last longer and allowing people to have a record of what others have said and how they have voted. There are many forms of online play: as part of the promotion of the film Cry_Wolf a website was set up to play a similar game using AIM Instant Messenger, pitching wolves against sheep.

    Online forum play was first known to be run on the Internet forum Grey Labyrinth by a regular poster from that site. The game requires 1 or 2 moderators to control. A sign up thread is created announcing the game. The game usually starts in the night phase with players messaging the moderator with their choices, and the mafia teams communicating via email before submitting their kill. The moderator will process the choices, write the appropriate death scene for those that were eliminated, and post a dawn scene. Then the players will vote for who they think is mafia. Generally speaking the first day of the online game is very random in nature, but as the game progresses the lynching becomes more strategic and planned.



    Themes are the most common method of online play. Any group of well known characters or groups will work. The Simpsons, Hanna Barbera, The Lord of the Rings for example have been used because of their extensive character sets. In themed games, each player takes on a character from the theme, so roles tend to be more creative and relate to the scenes in which they are set. Themes can also be Types - such as a Werewolf-themed game, or more extreme such as Time Travel Mafia or Deep South (a variant with no night phase).
