Armenia-Azerbaijan: Mafia & Society

Fatalin's Blog informs its readers about Mafia, a group game where some participants take on the role of the mafiosa and kill those who represent citizens while both sides deceive each other. Invented in Russia, and alluding to societies in both countries, the blog notes that the game is especially popular in Armenia and Azerbaijan, perhaps because both nations are similar in their temperament and mentality.
