Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Hi folks. 'sbeen a while.

I'm looking to run some mafia games, and need to remind myself of how to balance a game.

Can anyone suggest a few basic, balanced, game setups (for maybe around 10 players) - so that I can get myself back in the groove? Thanks.

Re: Today I Made:

Yesterday I made lamb chili from lamb shoulder. It was/is damn good. Tonight I've got lamb chops, just roasted in salt/pepper/mixed herbs - gonna have it with mint and lemon cous cous.

There's a lamb blade joint waiting in the freezer too. I've got a butcher friend, which is useful.

"Yeah it might be too wet, make sure you don't over mix it as well, it's alright if it's a little bit lumpy with muffins. And use self-raising flour rather than plain flour, helps them rise a lot better."
