Hello! We are continuing the series of posts on what awaits you at Hitchhiker's guide to Skoltech. Last time we introduced you to our Sport mini-games.

And this one is about Skoltech Themed Mafia.

Sk.Mafia. Hunchers against HeadHunters

He was standing under the light of Campus. What a lovely place. All the people around, they were his fellow startupers, students, professors. He knew them very well. But some of them wanted him to quit Skoltech... Hunters... He better get rid of procrastination before it's too late. And who is this mysterious Hunchman, anyway?
