    Besides from the look of things, people were suspecting mr waffles already so mafia was going to lose no matter what imo

    The question is, do you want town to win or the jester to win?

    The goal of the game is not to spite town, it's to win.

    Yeah but mr waffles and priscilla were suspected alreadyy before that point so they were going to lose no matter what

    Thats my point, mafia had no chance in that particular game

    Of course id never suggestt spiting town when mafia has a chance of winning, but mr waffles already guaranteeing his loss way before that point anyways, with multiple people suspectig him

    So basically mr waffles had a choice, let town win or let his best friend who happens to be the jester win?

    nah you gotta still try your hardest to win even when the odds are shite

    Giving up is against the spirit of the game and is bad form

    Sure, but add more jesters. Can hardly call it jestermania with only 1 jester now.

    About this, I've been improving my multi-jester setup. Here's the current version:

    1 cop
    1 jailkeeper
    1 bodyguard
    1 tracker
    6 vanilla townies

    1 godfather
    1 role cop
    1 goon

    2 jesters (can only win if they are lynched while the other is dead. Search for each other every night)

    Basically I figured out having two jesters weakens them so I removed the doctor in order to nerf the cop. But added two weaker doctors in their place, and a tracker to counter the godfather. But then also gave mafia a role cop, to help them find all those tricky roles.

    Cop can find jester and goons but not GF. Tracker can find GF and goons but not jesters.

    I like it. Only problem is the wincon of the jesters though. Kinda dumb that they need the other dead(assuming night killed right?) so they can win. If one jester wins, won't the other simply give up as they can't win anymore basically ruining the chaos the two jesters are supposed to spread?

    Imo, make it that they can only win if both are lynched, if you want to keep the original wincon then when the jesters find each other then they will gain this wincon that I just mentioned. Also, I'd increase the jester count to 3 or maybe 2 jesters and 1 unjester.

    But that's like... the entire concept the game is based on. Someone showed a pic of a mafia card game that had a jester role like that, and I wanted to see if it works.

    And I suspect two normal jesters is a little too much chaos. And also they will win easily.

    Though I could make the jesters appear as town if the other one is still alive maybe :catthinks

    Though that would be annoying for the cop.

    I dunno feels like the cop has enough shit against him already.

    Actually making the jesters fool the role cop is more like it. Mafia could find them and keep the info for later. While the town cop has a much harder time making such maneuvers. Make it so the jesters appear as vanilla town to the role cop.

    If anything I should maybe remove the jester's mutual search because they'll have a hard time outing each other in practice. Also they would also need a protection against the tracker.

    Away with the complexity, I say.
