My only problem with it is that I think mafia games are supposed to be about using good logicombat to either trick people if you're mafia or figure out who's trying to trick people if you're town. Having one or two people decide who is mafia based on what claim they submitted is kind of uninteresting in my opinion.
    It's a logical progression, though. The Town determines that someone is, "cleared," which in a closed setup, as most games here are, is often subjective, and that trusted player then communicates to the Town which of the remaining players they trust - as you mentioned, the person receiving claims could easily be mafia themselves, so there's still plenty of logicombat to go around.

    It's just another method of scumhunting, and it is far from infallible - I don't particularly care for it, but I don't hate it, either.

    But the problem is that there's not plenty of logicombat to go around though. After the claims are taken people pretty much just sit around and go with what the claim taker has to say. Sometimes they even actively discourage other people from making points in favor of waiting for the claim taker to say something.

    Also, if the claim taker is still unsure of who to go after, they'll attack players with passive or unprovable roles. Yeah they may be easier to fake, but they also happen to town players a lot, and if that kind of reasoning is used against you there's really not much you can do to logicombat your way out of it, especially if it's a role that a town considers expendable.

    Then of course if you refuse to claim either because you don't trust the person or because you're afraid the above will happen, then you're looked on with suspicion anyway. Mass claims are just bad news. It stops mattering what people say to attack other players or defend themselves and becomes a guessing game about which roles the claim taker thinks are scummy or fake.

    We should move this discussion to the Mafia Philosophy thread.

    It is Ponies. Nuff said. And more people have seen MLP than Bleach, at least from here.

    Ponies are awesome, guys. If you don't like them, you have probably watched the Pilot episodes. XD "The Ticket Master" and beyond are great. :)

    I think people like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic a lot because it's a really cute show that teaches lessons about friendship. :) You can also relate to the characters, as all of them have their flaws and they're very human-like, even though they're obviously ponies.

    @jokool; I'm in the MLP Mafia because when we had the last one, I was looking for a game to join, and the options were, I think, MLP, Supernatural and Twilight....yeah. I was among the Mafia members that won the game, so I joined because I feel good for that.

    Um. I suppose I can join if there's really nobody else to join. :P
