About Mafia Wars

Mafia Wars
is set in New York City and Little Italy, with the option for players to travel between New York, Cuba (level 35+), and Moscow (level 70+) and Bangkok (upon unlocking items from New York levels). The game revolves around doing and mastering jobs in order to earn cash and experience, with the goal of establishing and advancing one's criminal empire.Players create mafias by recruiting players and using reward points to hire extra mafia members. Social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Friendster allow players to recruit from within their network of friends to build their mafia and fight against other players.Players can also improve their stats by visiting the God father or making a micropayment.

Gameplay revolves around timers: players have limited energy (for doing jobs), and health and stamina meters (for fighting other players), in a manner similar to an RPG game, which slowly recharges over time. With the help of other mafia members that have been recruited, players can eventually fight other players, which may or may not result in the theft of cash, "icing", or "death" of the other player. The game operates on a level up basis. The player earns experience points by completing jobs. Players who manage to complete special tasks (e.g., winning fights against bigger mafias or winning fifteen fights in a row) are labeled as having accomplished an "achievement", resulting in a bonus for the player. As they level up, more jobs and features become available, such as the ability to visit Cuba to expand their criminal empire.

After a significant in-game marketing blitz, Zynga added a new city, Moscow, on September 24, 2009. Once a player reaches level 70, they are granted access to Moscow, and they get to choose between the Thieves in Law Vory or the Russian Mafiya . Two upcoming regions are Las Vegas, coming out in 2010, and Bangkok, coming out January 2010, where the player will get to choose from the Triad and the Yakuza.The current ranks/episodes are the following: Street Thug, Associate, Soldier, Enforcer, Hitman, Capo, Consigliere, Underboss, and Boss in New York; El Soldado, El Capitan, El Jefe, El Patron, El Padrino, and El Cacique in Cuba; and Baklany, Boets, Brigadir, Avtoritet, Vor, and Pakhan in Moscow.
