"We will be playing the famous role playing game called Mafia (http://www.wikihow.com/Play-Mafia). We will look at a variety of strategies used by some players to probe and examine suspects, while others attempt to lie and deceive their way through the game. We will discuss how we can employ the techniques of inquisition and deception in real life situations. Equipped with this additional knowledge, we will play a second game of Mafia and try to implement what we have learnt. Time permitting, we will play a modified version of the game with additional characters and even higher stakes!"

Bring one of the following:
coffee mug with design or message
help with designing a poster (2 hours)
help with designing a website (2 hours)
help with running an online logo competition (2 hours)
invitation to a home-cooked vegetarian or pescetarian dinner
promise to attend 1 hour of Ultimate Frisbee + 1 hour of Mafia at CERN (in April or May this year)

About the teacher, Sameed

I am a physicist by training and currently work at CERN. I have lived in the United States, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Hungary and have interacted extensively with people from nearly fifty different nationalities. Although I do not have any formal education in psychology, I have privately studied the subject in various extra-curricular capacities. I have been playing Mafia for more than three years now and have researched the psychological aspects of the game with my colleagues at university. There are a lot of lessons and hidden gems in this highly interactive game that I would love to share at Trade School Geneva.
