Those are very interesting to hear. There was this one obnoxious guy who just shouted that. "When he said, 'mafia wake up,' something shook against my ass."
The first time I played mafia IRL was over the summer with mainly people who hadn't played mafia (1v1 w/ wolf) before. The first couple of days were pretty bad. Cardflip was off for kills but on for lynch. One of the twins (by twin I mean if one twin died, the other would die too) claimed to be inspector and got a village lynched. :|
That obnoxious player did tick most of the people off though. I recall a game with him in which as mafia, I killed the smart villagers and just left the obnoxious dude and a first-time player alive. Even though he tried to bribe the first-timer $20 to vote me, the annoying guy pissed off the first timer and he got lynched. Sucks that the game was ruined, but the annoying guy's reaction was well worth it.
Over the next couple of weeks though, the games did improve in quality, but we were friends and we just played casually. Playing IRL is more fun for the one trick ponies and the experience of actually being involved in the game rather than sitting behind a monitor, but I'd rather play on Smogon for more serious games since the playerbase here is more dedicated and experienced.
