Mafia Wars is a popular and addictive game featuring you as a growing mafia. Your job is to make money and recruit as many people to grow your own mafia family. The more mafias in your family, the more powerful you are. With that in mind, the first thing you need to learn is to recruit more people.
You can only recruit your friends, so the first step is to add as many friends as possible. You can do this the simple way by referring to GoGetBoned. There is a list of important and high ranking Mafia Wars players – about a thousand or more. Just click on their profile links and click add. Once they have approved your add, you can invite them to your mafia family. Most of them will immediately accept. Therefore, you will be able to see the number of mafias growing in your family.
Secondly, you need to know how to earn more money. The trick is to complete jobs that use up more energy as those jobs tend to offer more experience and therefore you can reach higher levels faster and regain all your points at the same time. However, in the beginning you might want to just concentrate on low paying and less energy jobs.
Thirdly, remember to keep your money in the bank. This cannot be important than anything else, because you might get attacked at anytime and someone might get away with your money. Don’t be stupid and lose all your money in fights. Keep them safe and sound in the bank. Otherwise use the money to buy lands and properties to generate more income. Once you have properties, remember to protect them as well. Most of my friends said that it is a waste to protect the properties, but they regret when their properties get robbed.
Fourthly, you should be well aware that this game is never ending and therefore, it is rather addicting. You might be tempted to play while at work but try to restraint yourself if you don’t want to get fired. I have a friend who loved to play the game so much, he ended getting a warning from his boss.
Last but not least, enjoy the game. There is no need to rush since you won’t be able to be highest ranking player anyway. There are way too many players online. Mafia Wars is available on many social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Tagged. Enjoy playing!
