Transcript:Mafia Wars Hints and Tips

Hi, this is Dan with About.com and today I'm are going to show you some popular tips and hints for the game Mafia Wars.

Starting Mafia Wars

Mafia wars is a popular social network game played on Facebook. In Mafia Wars, the player starts out as a gangster who must fight, rob, and complete tasks to build their mafia.

Let's take a look at the navigation. Once you begin to gain levels you will be given skill points to allocate to skill sets. In the beginning of the game put all of your level up experience points towards your energy. You can avoid stats like attack and defend right now because there is very little fighting at this point of the game. Another stat you can avoid is health. Health is accessible throughout the game and can be purchased for 1 unit of money also known as a clam.

Mafia Wars is a Freemium Game

Mafia Wars is known as a freemium game, meaning the game is free but there are in game features that you can purchase with real money. One of the most important elements of Mafia Wars is the reward points system. Reward points are used to buy items or services from the Godfather. They are essential to Mafia Wars and they cost real money.

However, there are other ways to obtain reward points. One of them is to complete 3rd party surveys through Facebook. These surveys take anywhere from 5 – 20 minutes and can supply you with large amounts of reward points.

Grow Your Mafia

The next tip is to grow your mafia. The more family members you have in your mafia the stronger you are. You can grow your mafia by getting your social network involved. Facebook will prompt you to share information with your friends, which is a great way to recruit them into your mafia.

If you're looking to play the game without your friends then check out the numerous fan pages on Facebook. Here you can link up with other Mafia Wars members and build your mafia strong, and remember you can be a part of more than one mob. So don't be shy.

Redo Old Jobs

Another great tip is to go back and redo old jobs for loot and bonus items. You'll receive experience points and money so it's a win win situation.

Also be sure to fight weaker people and build up your win/loss ratio.
