Not here often, anymore, but wondering how all the Mafia members are doing.

Back in the day, I was a younger man with 3 young kids. Now two are in college, and the youngest just got his driver's license. Still living in the Chicagoland area, and less than 10 years to retirement. I got old. Somehow, still maintaining a single aquarium, but probably not for much longer.

If you were a resident of ACville, and happen to stumble on this thread, give an update.

Still going strong...shame most AC members active don't understand the Mafia draw...especially being fooled by Mad as if he was an innocent. ;)

I have always heard of the AC mafia since I joined but, well, I never made it all the way down here where you guys understand & play the game. I'm more a solitaire/candy crush/pinochle/uno/monopoly/trivia kinda "gamer" if I can call it that, lol. I like games with yelling out answers. It sounds like it might be mean or need too much chess-like strategy...do we just call that "Bob-isms" now? I think he might have been a mafia boss...I know he plays chess...Is it like Leisure Suit Larry only with aquaria in some form? Not that I know that game but my mom had it...in the 80s or 90s...I think Bob may be lying that Mafia is still going strong on AC...So just where is this game happening? Can anyone play?

Howdy, RB. A good time was usually had by all. Kind of hard to understand the draw until you've played once or twice, and the switch clicks on.

RB is still going strong... Mafia games, not so much. Try doing a search on Mafia here, and see what comes up, if you want to read some old game threads.

Just logged in for the first time in ages to post about planning to set up a new tank and I come across this. Nice to see some of the old family still around! Things are good here. Got married, moved a couple of times and changed careers yet again.

RB... Mad was never innocent. Even when he was. =)
