  3. 3. Introduction There's something exciting and romantic about the lifestyle of major organized crime, as manifested by the success of mob movies such as The Godfather. The enticement of easy money, lots of power, and living on the edge of the law has spawned many successful video games. I'm not sure any of them rival the power of Mafia Wars by Zynga in recent times. The explosion of social networking websites, specifically Myspace and Facebook has made it possible for many software companies to make a fortune by creating free, addictive games that people share with one another on these sites. If you aren't already playing "Mafia Wars" then you are missing out on a free way to have a lot of fun and make a lot of friends. It doesn't cost a dime to play and once you're involved in the game you'll enjoy it so much you won't ever want to stop. I personally prefer playing Mafia Wars on Facebook. I will shortly be creating a new Facebook account for us all to join mafias together and play the game from the start again. -Dominique Donati
  4. 4. Growing Your Mafia Initially, this seems like the hardest part unless you're really experienced with these kinds of games or 'applications' on social networking sites. To go out and recruit people into your mafia quickly and successfully, follow the steps here and your mafia will be huge in no time. Method #1) Invite all your existing network friends to play. This is easy because the application has a built-in feature to do this, however, it's limited because the application needs to cooperate with the social network website and not spam. To overcome the limitations imposed by the built-in feature of the application, you need to get your recruiting link and go out and invite your friends individually. This will actually bring MORE of your friends into your mafia than by using the automated features. Take a minute and craft your personalized invitation message for your friends. Tell them that even if they don't want to play, you benefit by them simply accepting the invitation. You want your mafia to be huge in numbers so even the people who never use applications but accept to be in your mafia will speed the game along for you. Some of the least expected friends can turn into your strongest mafia bosses so invite everybody. Send your personalized invitation via the private message feature. Don't try to send to everybody too fast because you don't want Myspace or Facebook to kick in its anti-spam defenses. Send a message every few minutes until you've invited your best friends. Try to pick the most active members first as they'll be most likely to accept and play the game with you.
  5. 5. Method #2) Use forums to recruit super players In Mafia Wars, you need at least six players in your mafia who are totally addicted to the game and will reach the higher levels. These are the players you want to put into your 'top mafia' by promoting them to be your wheelman, your safecracker, etc. When you promote players who are further along in the game, you get bigger rewards in jobs and fights. To find these people, go to the "Apps" directory on Facebook. In the Search Applications box, enter 'Mafia Wars'. The first and best one is #1 by Zynga, the one we're talking about in this report. Go ahead and click it. It will take you to the application's home page. What's interesting is that there is a discussion board on this page. It's where you'll see people asking and answering questions about the game. It's a good place to hang out if you have doubts, but the best part is that this is where players post to recruit members into their mafia. What you do is add all of these people who are posting for more mafia members to your own mafia. You add them as a friend and I recommend you include a personal message at the time of adding saying something like "for mafia wars" or just paste your recruiting link in there so they know you're not a stalker and want to play the game with them. There's no limit to how much you can do this, and it's the fastest way to build a supercharged mafia. It's important to recruit early in the game because the best way to get cash flow going (in order to get stronger weapons and vehicles) is to buy "Mafia Mike's" property. It's cheap and offers awesome
  6. 6. cash flow. You need it in order to get those Tommy Guns necessary for completing jobs and defending yourself. Recruit like crazy and your mafia will be gigantic. The limit at the time of this writing is 500, but you can get there quickly by using this forum recruiting tactic ALONE!!! Do both adding people from the forum and post your own little ad for recruiting. You can also post in the 'Review' section but tell people to add you as a friend to invite to the game since the review section doesn't allow you to post your recruiting link. The comment section does though so feel free to post it there at least once a day, maybe even once every four or five hours even since there are so many postings there. Method #3) Use other social sites to recruit existing players. If you're playing on Myspace, go to Facebook to recruit players into your Myspace mafia, and if you're playing on Facebook, look for the players on Myspace to recruit into your Facebook mafia. The app also runs on Yahoo, so look for players using the Yahoo version. One thing you can do is create a free blog about your personal 'mafia' experiences. Go to and create a blog dedicated exclusively to your mafia. Write on it daily at first, and be sure to include 'keywords' related to mafia wars that will help other players find your blog. You should customize your blog sidebar to display your recruiting link prominently. If you don't know what to blog about, just Google some info about mafia wars and you'll be able to get ideas.
  7. 7. DIRTY TRICK: Write up a blog post about "Mafia Wars Cheats" and tell people they'll get a bonus by adding you to their mafia. I've seen other people doing this and while they aren't winning any real friends, they sure have big mafias… I've seen similar methods using video sites like YouTube and Metacafe as well. These are people who promise players a hidden bonus if they add such-and-such person to their mafia. It's not very honest unless you give some of your collection items to these people, in which case it's completely honest and I encourage you to make those kinds of promises. Otherwise, just make Mafia Wars Cheat Secrets or something like that the title of your video to get views but just refer people to your blog or recruiting link. You can also use Twitter to recruit on automatic pilot. What you do is go to and create a free account. You will also already need an active Twitter account to use this. What you do is once you've created your account, go to "Manage My Scheduled Tweets and Twitter Account Automation." Click the box that says "Auto Welcome" and enter either your blogger blog or your mafia recruiting link into the message box. It can only be 120 characters so consider a URL shortening site like to make the recruiting URL small enough that you can still add a little blurb of text inviting. Remind people they have to add you as a friend too! You can do searches on Twitter so search for mafia wars and start adding all the people who have anything to say about it. TweetLater will automatically send your recruiting message to the people that follow you back. You can do this to hundreds of Twitter users each day, but don't go overboard because Twitter also has anti-spam measures built-in to prevent users from abusing the service. Create
  8. 8. multiple Twitter accounts if you want, you only need one TweetLater account for multiple Twitter accounts though. Preparing Your Mafia If you've done a good job recruiting members into your mafia, you should have at least six very experienced players who are very far along in the game. You want to make these super players your 'top mafia' members. If you go to the My Mafia section in the game, you should see places to promote six members of your mafia into top positions that give you bonuses. This section will vary greatly depending on who's in your mafia. If you're lucky you will be able to fill all six positions with high- ranking members that will give you good bonuses. If you didn't do so well in recruiting (impossible if you follow the steps I've outlined) then there won't be many bonuses you can get, but focus on the bonuses that will at least give you a little more cash. It's a good idea to send gifts to your mafia, especially to your top players. It's good criminal etiquette. You'll need to pull a bunch of jobs before you have anything to give them, however, remember to send a gift to these members when you get something interesting in your collection. How to Use Godfather Reward Points
  9. 9. When you first get started in mafia wars, you'll have Godfather Reward Points. The tendency for new players is to spend them quickly. DON'T DO IT!!!!! Godfather points are very difficult to obtain unless you're willing to pay real money. They are occasionally given in the game, but usually to obtain more, you are required to buy them with cash or buy related products or offers. You can score some more Godfather reward points easily by browsing through the offers to find the ones that require very little money (like $1.39) or are completely free. There aren't very many, but there are some. Be attentive browse the offers to find them. Never waste your Godfather points on: - Money (you can always get it in fights and jobs) - Restore Health (you can always go to the hospital) - Stamina (this recharges quickly) - Family Members (my recruiting methods are great) - DO use Godfather points on: - Energy Refills (once you've built up your total energy points) - Crates (sometimes it's the best way to get certain items) - New name (it's the only way, if you get a bad rep just change) - Skill Points (these are permanent and worth getting) Getting Going on Jobs
  10. 10. As you start out as a street thug, you'll see that energy goes fast and you need a lot of tools to run your crime organization. Use your profile points at first to go all toward your energy. In the initial stages of the game there is almost no fighting so put everything you've got initially into boosting the amount of energy you have. Go to your inventory and pick up the basic weapons you'll need. The required tools are displayed on the same line as the job and when an item is red it means you either don't have it or need more of that particular item to do the job. Go ahead and buy everything you need to start those jobs except for maybe the motorcycle to pull the 'Rob a Pimp' job. You can save that one for last if you prefer because the motorcycle has upkeep and we haven't talked about optimizing your cash flow yet. Do the jobs that cost more energy first. If you want to build up some cash faster, pull the job 'Collect on a Loan' because it pays high and the energy cost is very low. Don't waste your high energy on the small jobs like mugging, save that for when your energy has all run out and it recharges little by little. Then pull the small jobs. Focus on just one job at a time as much as possible until you've mastered it. Once you master a job you're given bonus points which you can use to get more energy for more jobs. It's entirely up to you how many point you allocate to energy. You don't need to get more stamina for fights because it recharges fast and all fights only cost 1 stamina, but energy costs are high so you need a lot of it.
  11. 11. Once you master all the jobs in a section, the jobs will restart at the next level. So you'll need to redo all the jobs again to remaster at the higher level. As you do jobs, you'll pick up lots of goodies and bonuses. This is the good thing about doing a bunch of jobs before jumping into fights. Save the fights until you've got a sizeable mafia and some good weapons and defenses in place. Avoid the temptation for revenge while you're running jobs. Sometimes you'll be attacked. Let it go while you build your mafia's business stronger. Become strong first and then you can pick on weaker mafias all day long. I've broken down the jobs, the tools you'll need, and the loot they give. This is your reference guide to always know exactly which job you need to do in order to get certain loot.

The loot you'll acquire: Humvee – Break Into the Armory AR-15 Assault Rifle – Rip Off the Armenian Mob As you pick up items such as poker chips and cards, be sure to hang on to them. Don't waste your energy pulling the little jobs all the
  16. 16. time. When you have lots of energy, pull the big energy jobs first and then do the little ones later. The big ones give you more experience and you'll be able to recharge your energy quicker by advancing a level. Creating Strong Cash Flow There's no competition for cash flow properties. You need to build your mafia big so you can get your hands on as many 'Mafia Mike's' bars as you can during the early phases of the game. These are cheap and give more cash flow than buying any of the other smaller properties. The only thing you need for more bars is a bigger mafia, so keep the recruiting up on a daily basis. You'll need them to guarantee the upkeep of your vehicles and heavy weapons which are required for the bigger jobs. Recruit constantly to your mafia and keep buying bars to keep up with your numbers. You should quickly be able to have a cash flow of over $200,000. Bars are also great because they don't require protection from robbing. It's a good idea to make bars the base of your property dealings and only get into the bigger hotels and casinos once you're bringing in millions in cash flow AND have a strong enough mafia to repel heists. It's not a good idea to sit around on a lot of cash. Always put it to work for you. If you just sit on it, you can lose a lot of it in a fight and your hard work will go to other mafias. Always buy property in bulk when you can to get it at the lower price. You pay more 1 by 1. Doing big jobs will bring in lots of money very fast. Reinvest it quickly into property. That's good business. Instead of looking at the
  17. 17. money, invest it into making you MORE money without having to work for it in jobs or fights. I don't recommend buying ANY rent houses or Italian restaurants. The cash flow is too little. Focus on bars until you can afford hotels and casinos. Remember the movie The Godfather? Did you ever see Al Pacino and the Corleone family worried about rent houses or restaurants? No way, because it's not good cash flow. Hotels and casinos is where the big money's at. They're expensive to protect, so don't lighten up just because you got the properties. Once you have a large mafia and lots of good defensive loot, go ahead and go for casinos and hotels, but until then make do with empty property and Mafia Mike's bars. There will be plenty of time for the big hotels/casinos later. Winning More Fights Winning fights is a brutal way to run your entire business. I would never recommend focusing your entire mafia's force on fighting until after you've built a huge mafia and mastered the higher levels. After that, you can have all the fun you want taking out hits for bounty or just picking on the weaker mafias for fun or cash. Your ability to win fights depends on how big your mafia is and how well equipped you and the other members are in comparison to the opposing mafia, and a little luck. The luck factor is minimal, but it exists to help keep things a little more balanced. If you intend to be a major fighter, you will want to use your profile point on health and stamina. Your attack and defense aren't very
  18. 18. important because it's a lot easier to boost those stats with a lot of equipment and strong mafia members. It won't hurt you to boost your attack and defense stats occasionally when you master a level and only get one bonus point. It's not enough to considerably boost your health or stamina (requires two points) so in those cases you can use the points on those stats. In the early stages of the game, there will be a lot of underequipped and inexperienced newbies (n00bs) that you'll be able to pick on. They won't know half the secrets and tips you now know, so if you want to have some fun taking out the 'little fish' then use money on getting lots of weapons and armor for your mafia to use. Here's how to almost guarantee that you'll win a fight: 1. If the opposing mafia is smaller than yours 2. If the opposing mafia is a higher 'rank' than you at the same level of play. This means that player is pulling lots of jobs and not doing many fights. This is an easy way to identify the mafias you can overpower – and the good part is that they'll have money and items for you to take. 3. If the opposing mafia has an overall losing record of fights. If your enemy has lost 2/3 or more of his/her total fights, that player hasn't figured out yet how to win consistently and you should be able to beat them easily. Before attacking a player, click on the player's profile. See what kind of weapons and armor they have. If your opponent appears to be carrying a lot more weaponry that your mafia, you may want to pick a different victim.
  19. 19. You want to have lots of weapons available for your mafia members to use so buy the cheap effective weapons like grenades and hacksaws that have no upkeep. Eventually you'll need Tommy guns and other heavy weapons to pull jobs so always be attentive to picking up the best tools as soon as you can. The biggest key to winning more fights is to have a strong defense. You can usually get this with some of the mid-level loot items. My favorites are Bodyguards, Night Vision Goggles, and Prop Planes. I recommend getting as many prop planes as possible. The defensive power of prop planes is extremely high and having a lot of them will keep you from losing fights and getting killed in fights. Since the new elements of Gifting have been introduced to the game, you can request to have people send you prop planes. Most people don't like them and will happily send them. A word on Collections: They are fun to get but don't kill yourself trying to get all of the items for the collections because once vaulted, the bonuses aren't that impressive. Here are the bonuses you get from vaulting the collections: Diamond Flush Collection (Street Thug Tier) +1 Energy Heart Flush Collection (Associate Tier) +5 Health Sculptures Collection (Soldier Tier) +3 Defense Poker Chips Collection (Soldier Tier) +2 Attack Club Flush Collection (Soldier Tier) +3 Attack Cigars Collection (Enforcer Tier) +2 Energy
  20. 20. Spade Flush Collection (Enforcer Tier) +2 Stamina Rings Collection (Hitman Tier) +5 Defense Ties Collection (Hitman Tier) +6 Defense Paintings Collection (Capo Tier) +6 Energy Cufflinks Collection (Capo Tier) +10 Health Race Horses Collection (Consigliere Tier) +7 Energy Conclusion Mafia Wars is a fun an ever-evolving game.
