Draw one side of cards of the same geometric pattern. This will be their shirt. If you are unsure of your artistic data, you can leave it white, paint it in one shade or print any pattern on the printer. The size of the cards can be arbitrary, but should not be done too large. Ideally, the card should be completely hidden by the palm of the player.
Select one of the options of the game. Decide which participants it will be. In addition to the civilians and the mafia can be involved in more than 30 different variants of players. Usually, the "Mafia" is played between 8 to 20 people. If more people will find it very difficult to listen to anyone, and the rounds can last way too long.
