We want Mafia Mystery to be fun and exciting for everyone who plays, some actions however, ruin the game for other players and must be stopped. It is with this idea in mind that we created these guidelines.
Users are not allowed to use two accounts in a game. This would give them an unfair advantage against other players.
Play your role correctly, with your team. Don't sway the game in the wrong direction on purpose. Simply lying about your role, or “revealing” other roles is not against the rules. However, doing those things with the intent to purposefully lose the game for your team is against the rules. As a Mafia, revealing yourself and fellow Mafia members can result in a permanent ban. Killing your own team members is also considered game throwing.
● Don't reveal your role or any information to another player outside the Mafia Mystery app.
● Don't join or create games just for the purpose of gaining coins.
● Don’t exploit a bug for your own gain.
● Don't spam the chat.
● Don’t intentionally bypass the filter. It’s there for a reason.
● Don’t type anything containing sexual themes, including emojis.
● Profanity or inappropriate content is not allowed your username or status.
● No harassing and threatening other players. Harassment, threats, bullying, and racism won’t be tolerated and are grounds for permanent ban.
● Don't be excessively annoying.
It is against our rules to change your avatar and username to appear like another player. This includes falsely claiming you are a developer/admin.
If you discover an unreleased avatar, role, or feature: do not share it with others.
Do not advertise any service, brand, or product through the chat or your profile. Sharing Discord links is not allowed.
Frequently Asked Questions
There will be an appeal button presented with your ban. We recommend explaining the situation plainly or simply apologizing. After an appeal, another round of voting will occur and the ban will either be lifted or remain. The only appropriate time to contact support is if you are certain the ban was unfair and your appeal rejected. For support, email email@example.com.

No. Mafia Mystery was available on the Play Store from 2014 - 2019 but is no longer supported.
Toast Mobile was a software development company started by Tobey Osborne (aka Toast) in 2010, which focused on making apps and games for iOS and Android. Mafia Mystery was launched in August of 2014 by the 6 people on the team at the time. In 2018, all the Toast Mobile members went separate ways and Tobey now continues to run Mafia Mystery as a side project.
I’m the sole owner and admin of Mafia Mystery. I handle the support, community, social media, design, and development; all on the side of a separate full-time job. The best way to reach me is through the Discord or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but I may not respond immediately. There are seasons that I come and go from the Mafia community, and that’s ok. It’s always something I come back to and love working on.
Alex works for Mafia Mystery and handles public relations, community engagment, user support, and tournaments. You can find him on our Discord channel, feel free to ask him anything Mafia-related!
