Counter claiming (CC) = A scenario in Mafia where a player claims the same role another claimed to hold, usually accompanied by voting the first player. This is usually seen:
- when a Baddie is forced to claim a role and mistakenly claims a Goodie role that is still alive. The Goodie decides to counter claim the lie and start a lynch against the Baddie.
- when a Goodie claims a role (typically a spy) or claims to have information on a certain Baddie, and one of the Baddies counters by claiming the same role in order to get the Goodie lynched.
