A ranked game (displayed by a heart icon, as seen below) differs from an unranked in that:
- Each game "costs" 1 heart to play
- Points are awarded to the winning roles, but are not added to the player's Round Score.
A setup is able to play as a ranked game when it reaches 12 positive karma
- Setups that provide for excellent gameplay and are balanced (equal win ratios for mafia and town) may be picked by trophy winners to become competitive setups for the next round.
- The player who suicided is penalized -50 points as well as 1 heart and must sit out 10 minutes before playing another game.
