Pretend To Be The Sheriff
The easiest way to defeat the Mafia is to impersonate the Sheriff. The Sheriff in Town of Salem is an influential role that without whom, the entire town can go into disarray. This trick will help spare the town because the Mafia will typically go after the Sheriff, and you don’t want them to spot the real Sheriff. However, it is risky, but this way, you can bid enough time for the main Sheriff to investigate the Mafia and apprehend them while they are busy trying to figure out who the Sheriff is.
Use Your Will Properly
Every player in the Town of Salem has a Will, and its information is revealed after the player’s death. Many players use theirs to share funny jokes, but here is the best way to use them. Always make sure your Will is ready before night’s end.
- If you play an investigative role like the Sheriff, write down the names of suspects and clues you have on them.
- For a protective role like Bodyguard or Doctor, write down names of people you attended to and issues they had
- As a Jailor, write the name of the inmates
- As a Spy, write down quotes from Mafia conversations
- As a Medium, write the words of the dead
- Whatever your role, note down the suspected Mafia
Think Like The Mafia
The Mafia goes after players for different reasons so it helps to predict whom the Mafia may go after and stop them accordingly.
- First Case: In the Town of Salem, there are eight Townies, of which two are the Mafia. If the Mafia suspect convinces a mob to lynch Townie A and Townie B convinces the mob that the accused is innocent, there is a good chance that the Mafia will go after Townie B. If you are a Bodyguard, you can watch over Townie B and take out one of the Mafia. If you are a Jailer, you can take Townie B into custody to save him from the Mafia
- Second Case: Let’s assume Townie A interrogates Townie B during a town meeting and Townie B refuses to answer until the day ends and no one is lynched. In that case, Townie A is an Interrogator, and Townie B might be a Mafia.
It also means A’s life will be in danger so if you are a jailor, take B into custody or convince other security roles to detain him.
Keep An Eye Out For Lies
To lynch a Mafia, you need to uncover who is telling the truth and lying. Most players lie to some degree and here is how to determine their role:
- To catch someone pretending to be a Spy, whisper something to another player and ask the spy to repeat what you whispered. If he can’t, then he is fake.
- To catch someone pretending to be a Doctor, ask him to come to treat you at night while you ask a Vigilante to try to kill you. If you die, he is a serial killer or Mafia
- To catch someone pretending to be a Transporter, ask him to swap you with another friend. If both of you aren’t transported, he is fake
- To catch someone pretending to be an Investigator as him to investigate you. If by the next day he isn’t able to, lynch him.
Observer How Other Players Act
The action of other players can give them away if you pay attention.
- When people are voting to lynch someone, check out the ones that they may be working for Mafia without saying anything.
- Whenever a person is exonerated after voting, keep an eye on those who voted guilty.
- Watch out for a player who is too quiet or too loud; they may be suspects.
- If a player is anxious to lynch someone even without evidence, the person may be an executioner. Take note of such people.
