Much like the life of an average stoner.

I guess the 50% rule is designed to prevent scenarios where the town mass claims and the mafia's claims are pretty obvious. If you need 50% to claim, not everyone will have claimed until very late in the game, which forces players to rely more on scumhunting and less on process of elimination.

do you not think this is more of a problem with the set-up than the anything else? if your game is getting broken with massclaim you should..try do something about the set-up.

Re: Mafia Host List + General Discussion

I'm don't really agree with the reasoning, but that is the reasoning. I agree that the setup is usually the problem. Dan's solution of giving the mafia fake-claims isn't bad. I prefer just leaving out roles that the town is "supposed" to have; it gives the mafia fake claims but forces them to work to figure out what the good fake claims are.

No-role mafia would be spectacular. Seperate the bad from the terrible, CMON.

Re: Mafia Host List + General Discussion

^^^that would only work if the mafia were ever active, and in most games they aren't. I hate when scum players decide to just go inactive and stay low because they know if they post they'll get caught.

edit: oh and 80% of the players quit when they dont get a good role.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...
