Mafia General / Mafia Terminology Dictionary
« on: November 18, 2014, 03:34:45 pm »
This thread is because I just wasted 5 minutes of my life explaining to my wife what "Jesus Toast" is.

It would've been helpful to just say... "look"... or "read this".  I could've also dressed myself up as toast and bleach my skin but  no.

So if it hasn't been done, lets do it. Create the dictionary for mafia terms as used by SRK/JTM and or the other sub SRK sites out there. 

AtE: Appeal to Emotion.  Whenever someone tries to plead with people emotionally or through threats when they are faced with their own demise through a lynch.
Bandwagon: A large number of votes on a single person.
Bus: When mafia jump on the bandwagon to lynch a fellow mafia.
Capcom: Mafia, primarily used by Vynce because he refuses to move onto another game.
CFD: Chinese Fire Drill.  When people suddenly change their votes off of the leading bandwagon onto someone else in order to prevent the leading bandwagon from being lynched.
Clear: Someone who is surely civilian.
dUC: Dumb Undercover.  Gets the reverse results of a real cop, where mafia investigate innocent and civilians investigate guilty.
FoS: Finger of Suspicion.  You believe someone to be mafia and are accusing them as such.
Hail Satan: A play famously created by Alpha, where you claim to be mafia as civilian in order to get the traitor to contact you, revealing their identity to you.

KBD: Korean Back Dashing. Calling someone out for removing themselves from any involvement in a mistake.
Lock Clear: Someone who is civilian beyond a shadow of a doubt.
LYLO: Lynch or Lose.  Occurs when civilians have exactly 1 more person than mafia.  If you do anything but lynch mafia during day phase, you will lose, meaning you can't No Lynch.

MYLO: Mislynch and Lose.  Occurs when civilians have exactly 2 more people than mafia.  If you lynch a civilian, mafia will win during night phase.
