Welcome to

The Graduate Mafia Brotherhood

of Princeton University


The Hit of the Coffeehouse


Don't worry — we're not the Mafia! We play a game called Mafia, though. It could be described as a card game, although it's more of an experiment in psychology and mass hysteria. For many years we have played this game in the flickering shadows in the Coffee House of the Graduate College in Princeton. We get together every Thursday at 8pm, we eat free chocolates, and we play Mafia.
