GCL Mafia

GameChat League: Mafia Division

About Us

History

GameChat League: Mafia Division was formed in January 2011, shortly after Stingray split into two groups, Amoeba and Phoenix.

The division is named for mafiascum.net, through which most of the original group knew each other. As the years have gone by and members come and gone, the GCL's makeup has gotten more eclectic, though a few graybeards from the early days are still active in the lists.

In June 2018 after the departure of a few members from our fair chat league, the membership of GCL Snoo was folded into Mafia.

Who We Are

In case it isn't clear from perusing our Geek Lists, we are very informal and laid back. Once described by an elder statesmen of BGG as "the party GCL," we have a love for sarcastic joshing, warm-hearted ribbing, and an almost infinite tolerance for animated GIFs. Sometimes we even remember to talk about board games!

Active members are expected to participate in the weekly lists by posting weekly plays. Additional interaction through themed questions/Game of the Week/Top 5 entries are encouraged. While we tend to skew toward Cult of the New/high bandwidth play, all gamer types are welcome and non-GCL members may also comment in the lists.

Our GCL is currently at capacity and we are not actively seeking new members, but feel free to follow along if you have an interest.

Our sigil is a baby or a muffin (we're not sure which), and our house words are "MOAR GAMES".

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.
